“The place to eat in Tucson”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Had a business dinner her while in Tucson and was suggested this place as "the place." I wasn't disappointed. Service was top notch, food was wonderful and presentation was great. Location is easy to get to also. Sat outside and the weather was perfect for the evening. Everyone had a great meal and the desserts were a perfect ending to the meal.

“Constistently fabulous”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

My favorite restaurant in Tucson. Danny Scordato is a sticker for quality and consistency. This restaurant in the Catalina Foothills never misses. The food i excellent and the servers are true professionals. Many of them have been there for 10 years or more. Lunch is great and very reasonably priced. The salads are all excellent and weather permitting, it is lovely to dine on the patio. Dinner (reservations a must) is great for a romantic evening, special occasion or just because...

“Great meal, great service”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

We've wanted to try Vivace since we moved to Tucson and finally got the opportunity. I must say we were very impressed with the great service and wonderful northern Italian food. I had goat cheese & artichoke stuffed cannoli and my hustband had salmon on fettuccini....both were wonderful. The cream of asparagus soup of the day was great, too. I would highly recommend this restaurant. It is going to become our "go to" place for any special meals..

“Never disappoints”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

We love Vivace! The food is always delicious. The setting is wonderful, whether dining indoors or out on the patio. The staff always seems very accomodating without being at your tabel "too" often. The only way that we can see anyone being disappointed by Vivace...is if they didn't call enough in advance to assure themselves a reservation.

“Good Italian food”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Stayed at Windmill Suites and only 3 places to eat within walking distance in a shopping area adjacent to the hotel. Ate twice at Vivace--plenty of food, wife and I split entrees. Pork one night and veal picatta the other. Kitchen split the plates. Ate outdoors--very pleasant. Total price for 2 (sharing 1 entree) before tip with 2 drinks and a salad about $50.
