Always reliable for welcoming ambience, friendliness & excellent service. Gf options are available, Italian wine list is highly agreeable. I recommend the crab risotto. My friend enjoyed the duck. White table cloth, adult dining, thank you.

Vivace is reliable. You know it will always be great. The service always excellent and the food delicious. We are never disappointed. One of very few restaurants that we keep returning to.

Everything was great. Lovely food and an excellent wine selection. Service was spot on. Under current covid rules a 2 hour limit applies on tables and we managed to squeeze 3 courses into this time without feeling rushed. Entrees we tried were calamari and yellowfin...tuna. Mains were slow roasted lamb, baked blue eye and the seafood linguine. Desserts were the panna cotta with passionfruit and the citrus coconut meringue tart. Couldn’t fault a thing. We’ll be backMore

Our very good friend had a birthday last week. To celebrate we had a Zoom dinner party with the food provided by Vivace. The night was a great success with Vivace’s food being absolutely magnificent. Thanks very much Chris and Andy for the outstanding meal.

We decided to have takeaway as a result of covid19. Vivace did not fail to impress!! Hot tender scotch fillet, mouth watering calamari and tasty fluffy gnocchi pesto were all fully flavored and delicious. The sides of garlic broccolini and green beans hit the spot....Prompt service great taste , loved it.More

Meals were okay and I mean average I feel the place is overpriced for what you get and the corkage excessive. There are better places around and better value for money.
