Our international visitors were impressed as were we with the delicious menu and wines to match. Impeccable service too in a relaxed atmosphere. Will definitely return …

We really enjoyed this restaurant. The Bayside area seriously lacks restaurants in the top end echelon and this is one of the few that can stand with the best restaurants in Melbourne. I had been to Maze just 3 nights before here and I think the food here was every bit as good. All the dishes were exceptional, the lamb was a standout, one of the best plates of food I have had this year. Unlike many places doing this quality food , the servings are quite large. Service was efficient and friendly, wine list is very extensive with a good representation of European wines. For me, probably the best restaurant at the moment in Bayside . Well worth trying.”

We have started coming to Vivace over the past few months. It has consistently been an outstanding restaurant from the perspective of quality of food, drinks, service and atmosphere. Highly recommend the calamari and their signature dish – seafood linguine. The seafood linguine is the best I have ever had. It’s not oily, generous with quality pieces of seafood and just plain tasty. The service is always attentive, professional and outstanding. They are thoroughly deserving of the excellent reviews they receive.

Neighbourhood Gem that Never Disappoints. We started with the chef’s tasting platter that included fresh oysters, a delicious chicken terrine and goats cheese croquettes. Mains of choice were pork belly and trevally that was the fish of the day. Both an excellent choice. We finished with the chocolate tasting plate that was a delight. A wonderful meal out.

Wedding reception fare exceeded expectations. We attended a wedding reception here in the upstairs private dining area. If the downstairs regular dining is half as good you would do well to check it out. We had some roasted chicken that was other-worldly. Everyone was delighted with the food. The calamari appetizer was so good my wife ate some of mine and she loathes calamari. I cannot say enough about how good the wait-staff was.
