Vivace deserves it's number one rating on Trip Advisor. Try the spinach and cheese souffle for a starter-delicious! The linguine with salmon and the mannicotti were excellent. Candace did a great job taking care of us, too.

I come from a foodie city, where Italian food especially is out of this world. This place has been around for decades and Tucsonans love it. In my opinion, it is good but not great--but I am spoiled. The locals I went with love this...More

Excellent food and service as always, and just enough ambient noise to drown out our children. :) The osso bucco was fantastic, though the portion is massive, so keep that in mind. I also loved the special red pepper soup.

Menu, food quality, quaint patio, ambiance, wine list, location. It has it all and something on the menu for everyone. Most can take home leftovers for another lunch or dinner...speaking of which, lunch is also wonderful.

Vivace has an excellent menu, service and location! Every dish we’ve tried has been delicious (e.g., Pasta dishes, Seafood, Pork). Very lovely restaurant with outdoor patio. Food and service are consistently exceptional!

The dining room has a beautiful view of the lights of the City of Tucson. Service is comfortable and not rushed. The crab topped salmon and crab stuffed Chicken are amazing. I always finish with their delightful Creme Brulee.

We have followed Vivace from its original very small location in a shopping mall to St. Philips Plaza and now to its current location (the old home of Anthony's in the Foothills) for a very good reason--the food! Now the location has become part of...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.
