Victoria and I wanted to pick a special place to celebrate our 1 year anniversary together. From a number of very positive reviews by friends, many who said it was the best restaurant in Tucson, we chose Vivace. Neither of us had been there before so this review is based on our first visit. To begin with, the room is... More

Just walking in puts you in a good mood. Beautiful bar inside and wonderful outside dining. Friendly and accomodating staff. Food is the best and the martinis are to die for. Highly recommend.

This restaurant is one of my favorites in the Tucson area. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was attentive and friendly. We went for the sunset and the view was the best I have ever seen in the mountains. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Vivace is a family run restaurant in the Tucson foothills with great food and beautiful views. There is nothing I have eaten here that I didn't like! The seafood is especially delicious and service is great. Get a reservation because it is always busy.

Enjoyed everything including the large Italian portions. Was happy to get a reservation during the busy holiday season. I would do it again.

This reminded me of a golf resort restaurant with the crowd primarily consisting of older wealthy snow birds who like fancy looking food. Looking at the dishes coming out of the kitchen I decided to play it safe and ordered the manicotti which was very tasty.

I've eaten here 3 times now while visiting from out of town. Such impressive quality of food and service. Today I had the special a sea bass with artichokes. Absolutely divine. My husband had the seafood soup which he absolutely loves. So disappointed that they served my red wine in a white wine glass. Shame on you....for being such an... More

I f your looking for a place to spoil yourself or someone else, this is a great choice. Don't go without making reservations. Views are spectacular, device is very attentive and the food is device. My friends always order the chocolate lava cake for dessert and split it....sometimes they don't want to share.

We had a family dinner here on Dec 23. We had 8 in our party and got a nice round table. I like that so much better than a long rectangular table for large parties. I am a vegan and I called in advance to see if I needed to special order my meal. The person on the phone told... More

This was my first time here. I came with locals. The place was much larger and busier than I expected. Our room was a bit noisy and the decor was a bit "old school" and not terribly impressive. Our server was very attentive and animated. Cocktails and wine were excellent. Food was overall very good. I had the Baramundi fish... More
