The osso buco was exceptional. I order it from time to time, and this was as good as any I've had. More of a homemade taste than elegant, but that's how I like it. My partner had the fish special, which was also very good (maybe a bit too much rice) Ask for a seat near the window overlooking the... More

Food was great. Martini for me and Cosmo for my wife were perfectly prepared. Service was superb. Only area for improvement was when we checked in for our 5pm reservation and the restaurant was nearly empty, we were told we couldn't have window seating because it was for other guests who weren't there. It's hard to hear you're less important... More

This was the perfect place to host the event. Both the city views out front at sunset and the mountain views were perfect to take the bridal party pictures. We had appetizers and drinks on their back patio which were wonderful and a fixed menu offering many different options for the main course, salads and dessert in the inside dining... More

We visited here a year ago and wanted to return, since we enjoyed it so much last time. This is a busy place, with great views out either side of the restaurant. Our server was helpful and timely. My husband and I shared the grilled asparagus appetizer, which was just right for two people. He had the lasagnette, which featured... More

Requested and got an outdoor table on a beautiful night. Had to get an earlier than requested reservation because they were remarkably busy for a mid-week. Everyone in our party raved about their dinners which were served by a pleasant, efficient young woman. Very professional. We will be back!

We took an out of town guest for dinner because Vivace was highly rated and close to our home. The view was wonderful and the lights of Tucson made the environment very nice. The service was prompt and pleasant. Unfortunately the food was far from excellent. The menu is small with few choices and it is clear from the number... More

We were celebrating our 39th anniversary. We arrived about 15 minutes before our scheduled reservation but we were immediately seated. We had a wonderful view of the patio area and mountains. Our waiter was prompt and such a delight all evening. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the food and service. We were even surprised by complimentary dessert to... More

Vivace in Tucson Arizona is the total package because it has ambiance, great service and delicious food. The owner was an absolute joy. He greeted us, seated us, gave menu suggestions and made sure we were happy with our selections. The bread comes out with a pesto dipping sauce that is so addictive. I believe I ate four pieces of...

I'm sorry, but when you spend a lot of time researching and planning just the right restaurant for your 35th anniversary dinner, you'd darn well better be happy with your choice. When we arrived we were told that they didn't have us on the reservation list, although I had called days before. Upon further investigation they decided that they had... More
