There were four of us for dinner and we all ordered a different entree. Everyone enjoyed there entrees with very positive comments. I ordered veal Oso buco. I was very very good. However the portion of the veal shank was not complete. The veal on the shank had been removed and I received pieces of the original veal. For 49.00... More

Food was fabulous, no doubt about it. Pricey, yes. Risotto was heaven. Tables are so close you cannot walk in most directions. Noise levels were outrageous, service was weak because staff was spread too thin on a weeknight. If you want to feel like you are eating in an expensive cafeteria with fine food, this is your place. Don't attempt... More

I entertained 3 real gourmet friends from Belgium and everybody loved the food. As appetizers we ordered the Burrata vaso, an incredible mix of delicious burrata with heirloom tomatoes and herbs, the escargots and artichokes, prepared and cook to the perfection and the soup of the day that was a perfect Italian minestrone. For entrees my guests went for the... More

Ate here twice in April. Was in Tucson for a few days. Actually cancelled a reservation at another restaurant to eat here again. The food is delicious and of course the recipes are time tested Scordato family fare. Met the owner and chatted both times. The drinks from the bar are good pours and the prices for the food and...

This is fine dining with a view of the Catalina Mts. We went early (5:30) but reservations are necessary. We had Chilean Sea Bass, Artichoke-Goat Cheese Cannelloni, Stuffed Pork Chop and Seafood Soup (entree) Portions are large. Service is excellent. For me, the best part was sitting on the Patio so that we could enjoy the excellent view. They are... More

We have dined here somewhat frequently, but last night's visit was fantastic. The service was superb, (waitress Jameela), who was efficient, prompt, and charming. The kitchen was on track with the food served in a timely manner, and it was served hot and most importantly was delicious! Noise level was fairly good, though the restaurant was packed.

A wonderful restaurant with excellent food. We went for our anniversary and had such a lovely dining experience. The staff is attentive without being intrusive and they don't rush you thru your meal. They give you plenty of time to enjoy the view and fine dining experience.

I had the pleasure recently to enjoy a wonderful lunch at Vivace. It was my first experience at this location, having had a delightful meal at their previous location many years ago. To begin, the views are fantastic - sweeping mountain and distant city views, expansive windows all around. Our server was prompt, polite and well versed in menu items... More
