Had lunch with friends today and each dish was delicious. I had the crab cakes, and my friends had the pork dish and the cheese dish. All was well presented and delicious ! Chocolate Molten cake with ice cream for dessert. Yummy !

The venue is beautiful. The wait staff is professional and friendly. The food is a bit unpredictable. Lunch with a friend was delicious. Dinner with my partner a few months later was less so. Overall, this is very expensive. Check the menu to be sure...More

Food was wonderful from bread to salad to dessert. Service provided by Neil was excellent! We had the chicken meatballs with angel hair pasta. Best sauce I've had! My husband had the pork chop and it was so yummy! Highly recommend!

I strongly agree with Jack K’s review. Beautifully situated in the foothills above Tucson, with a stunning evening view of the city. Excellent service and wines. Reasonably priced but certainly not cheap. However the food, though passable and of good quality, lacked the flavour, presentation...More

Vivace's is always fantastic. I love this place and bring friends and clients here regularly. I can always count on great food, outstanding service, wonderful ambiance and the owner, Daniel Scordato, is there to make sure everything is five star.

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.
