Very rude manager told me to call another restaurant for my group of 20 international scholars. It was the worst treatment I've received in 20 years working in New York City and Europe. I wonder who they think they are? I mean, it's Tucson! Definitely NOT for groups, although some reviews recommend it.
Starting in April we spent most days dining out for lunch & or dinner. We challenged ourselves & visited many different restaurants through out the Tucson area, including the Northwest. Having been customers of Vivace & other Scordato family restaurants over the years & occasionaly the new Vivace Pizzeria. We decided to see if there was anything out there that could stand up to the perfection of Vivace restaurants, simply put, there are none! We and a number of our friends agree there are no other places in or around Metropolitan Tucson that meet the on going & continuous high standard of Vivace restaurants. The food, the impecable service & the professionalism is beyond reproach & rather outstanding. Needless to say the main house (Vivace) as we like to call it is the gem w/a smashing menu. The Pizzeria while different has a stunning menu with OUTSTANDING Pizza plus. Some places we visited were very good & many were good, but none as good as Vivace & Pizzeria Vivace. The best pie (Pizza) in Tucson, bar none. We have never had a so called bad meal at Vivace. We will continue our search but we always return to Vivace. We did find the new Guiessepes, owned and operated by Joseph Scordato, Danny's brother, on Oracle Road as very good. His menu favors more of the southern Italian style which is often found in New York, Chicago & other major cities. Joe gets it right. The food is nicely done, plenty of it, with good service, & very affordable. Welcome back Joe Scordato Donny Lama Simonetti

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place!!! Service is always great. Food is quite consistent and superb. If you are a foodie this is a very nice place for fresh fish prepared to perfection, olive tapenade dip to die for and awesome dishes and wine to choose from. Check them out and you will not be disapponted.
Vivace's is a great restaurant with great italian-american style food. They have an excellent selection of wine's and a very nice location in the St Phillips plaza. My favorite is the breaded chicken breast with garlic mashed potatoes.....DELICIOUS!! Hot tip: if the weather is nice, get a table outside near the fountain.
Being from NYC and eating at Le Bernadin, which is one of the best restaurants in NYC-I am a foodie. Vivace's is by far the one and only consistant restaurant in all of Tucson. Try the Roasted stuff shrimp!! Don't listen to Tucson local trendy Magazines rating restaurants-they have no clue! Vivaces is the best and always will be.
