I believe this restaurant is one of the better restaurants in Tucson but to call it Italian is a misnomer. First of all there is no such thing as Italian food. There are regional Italian cuisines, but no generic Italian cuisine. Just because I have...More

Have been a Vivace's fan since Danny opened his first one and before. Classic Italian menus draw on owner's family's historic recipes proven over their successful restaurants over the years. I still recall as a kid in the sixties being treated by my parents with...More

Yes. Every meal is prepared fresh, so if you want low salt, just ask when ordering. This is upscale Northern Italian, not the spaghetti and meatball house that is so common.

The dress code is listed as business casual. I did not see any of the men wearing a tie and most had on nice slacks and button up shirt. Most of the ladies were either in dress pants and tops or long skirts and tops. I did... More
