Vivace Review

A nouvelle Italian bistro in the lovely St. Philip's Plaza, Vivace has long been a favorite with Tucsonans. Wild mushrooms and goat cheese in puff pastry is hard to resist as a starter. The fettuccini with grilled salmon is a nice, lighter alternative to such entrées as a rich osso buco. For dessert, the molten chocolate cake with spumoni is worth the 20 minutes it takes to create. Patio seating overlooking the pretty, flower-filled courtyard is especially inviting on warm evenings.

    Outstanding

    Ordered a veal plate off the menu-no problme. Wine list very good. Food was excellent. Decor very nice. Wait staff excellent also. It is a hard achoice between this and North as far as the best.
    I will return and or suggest this to others......

    Here to stay

    I can't say enough about the food here. The oso buco was out of this world. Our server was there when we wanted him and never hovering over us. It was also nice that the owner came by to hello. I can see why Tucson just can't get enough.

    Has seen better times

    When Vivace was in a strip mall at Grant and Swan the service was much better than it is now that it's relocated to the stuffy St. Phillips Plaza.
    As for the food, it'stough to beat their unusual and imaginative specials.
