Locals told us this was a great restaurant and the clientele appeared to be regulars. Busy but very comfortable seating. Our dinners were super but we were highly disappointed in the bottle of Domain Chandon Brut we had with our dinner. There were NO bubbles. It tasted okay but when we pointed this out to our server he said maybe it was the altitude! As we live at 6000 feet and have it shipped regularly to our home, I tend to believe it was more attitude. A replacement was not offered. When spending $100. for two, actually never, do I feel this is acceptable. I'm sorry this made an otherwise nice dinner out with a bitter taste, if the server was more caring it would rate more stars.

This restaurant located near River and Campbell is a beautiful setting. The patio faces a beautiful fountain and open feeling. The indoor space is well decorated. The service is top notch. Staff is attentive and anticipates/fills needs. I have lunched alone on the patio and with my husband for dinner indoors. Being at Vivace is always special.

Been to this restaurant a couple of times and never have been disappointed. If one can, sit outside if weather permits. I will definitely go back the next time in Tucson.

Six of us celebrated my birthday here. We all had excellent meals. The only criticism I might have is that the restaurant is very noisy. Other than that the food and service were excellent. Will definitely return.

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.
