Went for lunch with some friends that I have not seen for many years. We were shown to a table that would be perfect for catching up and being a bit boisterous. Wine list was very good with offerings at all ranges of the price spectrum with some very good values. Everyone had something different for main courses and all... More

My husband and I were prepared to love this restaurant, but were disappointed. The bread and pesto before dinner was great, but all the other food was mediocre,well prepared, but nothing special. And the waitress was oddly apologetic and obsequious.

Our visit was as Special as our 70th birthday celebration. Our waiter Fritz was terrific and made us feel like regulars. Our meals were excellent and the Tirimisu outstanding. Will definitely be back on our next trip to Tucson

With a group of over 20 ladies I experienced the fine service, delicious food & wonderful views of Vivace for the first time. I will definitely return soon. As far as I know everyone was very satisfied with their meal; some even had room for dessert. My four-cheese Manicotti was so tasty & just the right size along with the... More

While visiting my in-laws last weekend they took us to one of their favorite restaurants in Tucson for lunch. It did not disappoint. Our server, Jackie, was excellent. She was upbeat, made recommendations to my husband and me, and checked back on us in an appropriate time...not too much or too little. I had the pear and walnut salad which... More

We made a reservation here based on reviews and suggestions from the hotel. Food was good but felt they were trying to turn tables quickly and it was quick - here's the bread, appetizer and salad delivered at the same time. There was a beautiful view of the city, but I will check a different Italian restaurant next time in... More

Had not been to Vivace for quite some time. The return visit was every bit as good as previous ones. With it's fine Italian dining menu VIvace has an amazing view of the city below. Sunsets are amazing. The menu from appetizers to desserts is something for everyone: escargots, stuffed mushrooms, salto buco, veal marsalla, risottos (several), fish, pasta, beef... More
