I like that they have so many kinds of Italian dishes to choose from and most of them are affordable and very good for a large number of people. There are good drinks in here as well.

The smell alone in here is enough to make you salivate. The food is well prepared and everything that you can order they will serve it in a timely manner.

Vivace is the best Restaurant in Tucson-no questions about it. We love this place because no matter what we get..it tastes just as good as the first time we had it. Consistency is something Tucson Chefs cannot get right-but at

My husband and I just had dinner here for our 1 yr wedding anniversary, it was awesome, we could not have picked a better place. Very nice atmosphere inside and the landscaping is beautiful outside! Our waiter was very friendly, and both of our meals were amazing! I had a stuffed pork chop and my husband had crab stuffed chicken. The prices are a little on the pricey side, but not too bad. Both of our entrees were under $20. We did make a reservation but not soon enough so the time we wanted was full so we went a little earlier, not really a big deal though.

Pros: great good! friendly waiter, owner is very involved

Cons: reservations very helpful and must be made far in advance

This is a great restaurant with great food. There is an issue though and I'm not sure if its us or the place. We go there are spend 90-150 dollars for our meal and for us that is a special occasion. It seems that most people who go there its not a special occasion. Some people are dressed to the nines others are slobs in cut-offs and T-shirts and some people bring their babies or young kids (hello ever heard of a baby sitter!). The noise is loud and reminds me of a sports bar, not yelling at a touchdown (not that bad), but the sustained noise level so loud my wife and I can hardly have a conversation. We've been there 5 or 6 times, and we will go again, but just don't plan on an intimate quite evening.

Locally owned, fantastic food, lovely service. What more can you ask? This restaurant is owned by a man whose family can only be described as Tucson restaurant royalty (here's a hint: his last name is Scordato), and it shows.

Vivace is the best Italian restaurant in Tucson. The patio is lovely during the cooler months of the year. The food is very good and the selection of wine is extensive. The cost is very reasonable.

My wife and I requent Vivace's regularly. The restaurant is always crowded and reservations usually needed. The service is adequet. The bigger the bill the better the service, so order that second bottle of wine. The entrees are wonderful. The Oso Buco is fork tender with wonderful sauce. The crab stuffed shrimp comes with a flavorful rissotto. The molten cake dessert with fresh fruit and gelato is worth the extra wait.

My in-laws are from Portland, OR, where they are accustomed to high quality food at an exceptional price. Vivace is the only restaurant that they request visiting when they come and visit.

NO RACISM!!! this review is partial in respone to the patron that has made outlandish comment about Vivace establishment being unfair because she was a person of color. I being an African american recieved wonderful service when my boyfriend took me there for our anniversary. Being a couple of college kids, we don't usually get paid much mind when we go to nicer establishments, such as Bistro Zin for example.
HOWEVER at Vivaces we were seated promptly, given a wonderful table, our waitress was wonderful and we recieved excellent service. The entire night was enjoyable. Moreover this was not the first time i have dined at Vivace and i must say i have ALWAYS been treated fairly and enjoyed myself when dining there. The food has always been wonderful and the restaurant has a very romantic atmosphere with all the candle lite tables at night.

The individual that stated that she may or may not have been mistreated based on her race is obviously has no business commenting let alone eatting in a fine place like Vivace!
--W.N. Alli a very well fed UA student by Vivace!

This locally owned restaurant has amazing fare and friendly, helpful servers who can answer all of your questions. My favorite menu item is the Crab-filled Chicken Breast, as well as all of their soups!

Vivace is a must try authentic Italian restaurant. Even though they don't serve pizzas, they offer great dishes and wines to go along. The service is great and the best thing of all is deserts. One of my favorites is the chocolate molten lava cake. It takes 20 minutes for them to make so be sure to let them know in advance!! So worth it.

PROS: desert
CONS:

The service that we were given at Vivace was impeccable and the food was wonderful. I had given up on finding a nice place to eat in Tucson because I had been to so many highly rated restaurants that turned out to be a total dive. This surpassed any expectations that I had. It was wonderful.

This is definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Tucson. The food was incredible - I had the stuffed shrimp and risotto. The artichoke appetizer was amazing, as well. We also had very good service - even as we waited at the bar for our table!

I've been with all sized groups and the wonderful service has never failed to enhance our pleasure in the incomparably great food and the lovely setting, both inside and out. This is my over-all favorite restaurant in Tucson. I didn't like it in its former setting, but in its new setting in St. Philip's Plaza, there's no place I'd rather go for a celebratory meal.

We dined at Vivace on a Saturday night, early.....5:00pm, before a concert we atttended. The food was excellent, some of the best we have ever had. The restaurant is really lovely. And the service was great. I would definitely recommend it to visitors, and couples. I wouldn't recommend it for families, because I am selfish and I would like to enjoy this place without kids. We loved this restaurant and will dine there often!!!
