    Vivace is known for great service and a tasty and filling dinner. Tonight was no disappointment. The fish special was really tasty: pink snapper on a bed of cauliflower mash covered in a mushroom cream sauce. That and the burrata two ways filled me up so that I didn't want dessert.

    Absolutely marvelous dining experience -- "as usual". Having Felix S. as our Wait Person was super and contributed to a memorable luncheon outing. The food and wine were wonderful. Food presentation from our entrees to our delectable/decadent dessert were beautifully presented. The staff we encountered -- were warm and friendly. It's totally understandable why Vivace is a Tucson favorite for locals. We most certainly look forward to our next dining experience.

    First time and enjoyed it. 3 stars on service reflect hostess and sommelier not server. Both were unwelcoming in our view and that’s not a good start for a special dinner. We had wine appetizers salads entrees and dessert. All good. Great waitress. Nice atmosphere.

    As usual, the menu selection was wonderful and the food and wine excellent. However, the service seemed a little off to me. The server was quite friendly but inattentive to details such as when our used silverware was taken away at the end of a course but not replaced until we asked for more. Also, when we walked into the dining room we noticed that the table cloths were unevenly placed on the tables - slanted right on one table and slanted left on the next. Perhaps these are little things but they add up to a less than top notch experience.

    As always, the food was delicious. Two of us had the special sea bass, which was tender, flakey and fabulous. The Ceasars Salad was delicious and the pasta, as always, was cooked to perfection. The waitress was fabulous. She engaged with our craziness and fit right in. We requested a window seat at 6:00 so we could enjoy the sunset, and were seated promptly to enjoy a beautiful view of the Tucson sun setting. Thanks to everyone for treating us and our out of town guests to a very, very special evening. We know we can always count on Vivace's for a wonderful experience!
