I hadn't eaten at Vivace since shortly after it opened. I'm happy to say after a recent dinner there that it is still an excellent Italian restaurant. The atmosphere is upscale, yet unpretentious. The food was wonderful and the service excellent. They have a lovely...More

That's right folks, you read the title right. Besides Naples Italy this restaurant has the best Italian food I've ever had. Everything was impeccable. Excellent wine list.

Tried the Charlotte venue (Wonderful) but while in Raleigh had to give the original a whirl. Did NOT disappoint. The brussel sprouts seared in brown butter nestled in creme fraiche was an amazing muse bouche. The caprese was perfect with nice mozzarella, tomatoes and pine...More
