My husband and I love Vivace restaurant. The restaurant is authentic and service is impeccable. The olive oil dip was very good. I believe it had some roasted garlic and some chopped fried garlic in it. Impressive wine list. Their pasta & pizza are quite delicious. Attentive, polite and efficient staff. Alaskan halibut with mashed potatoes and sauteed spinach was great. I recommend it.
We had the butterscotch creme brulee for dessert. Loved it!!

I literally grew up in this restaurant with both my older sisters working as hostesses there at some point. The food is absolutely spectacular and the restaurant was just expanded to offer even more sitting room. They even offer valet services on weekends. The restaurant itself is very inviting and relaxing with the bar always being a happening place. It's especially great for large parties or special occasions.

I've been here twice now, and this restaurant is a great place for lunch or dinner. The food is very tasty, and the people are nice; felt very taken care of here, lots of smiles and attentive service. Would reccomend it to anyone

Vivace's, located across from the Carlmont Shopping Center, has been in Belmont forever and rightly so. It is consistently good Italian food. It is a bustling little restaurant and you'll likely want a reservation if you are going at a peak time. The food is not world class but it is always enjoyable.

I love this restaurant. It is our favorite. Excellent Italian food on a frequently changing menu. An excellent wine list. Wonderful, upscale atmosphere. We've nearly always found the service to be excellent, although about 10% of the time,

I have to admit that Vivace is my favorite place to dine in the Pennisula. The ambience and atmosphere are perfect for a nice dinner with close friends or a romantic rendevous. The food is impeccable, and top notch.

Everything was ok; nothing was spectacular. The ahi tuna appetizer was nice, as was the creme brulee. The pan seared halibut with white beans and basil ragout was bland and uninspired. All in all... nice, but nothing to jump up and

Even on a Tuesday night, Vivace was packed. Definitely make reservations before going.

Our dinner started out slow, as it took 15 minutes past our reservation time to seat us and another 30 minutes before they took our orders. Our waiter

This is a great place to go if you are in the mood for Italian Bistro food. The appetizers and salads are great. The Osso Bucco is amazing, and the linguini with clams is fresh. Strongly recommend making reservations and calling ahead to

The gnocchi was still amazing. We also had a spinach salad with warm fried goat cheese which was excellent. Our server was highly skilled and very nice.

The intimacy of the dining room means that you'll enjoy your meal in complete comfort. The daily specials are worth considering, but so is the rest of the menu.
