Vivace Reviews

  • This is our regular 'go to' for family birthday dinners and we are always impressed. The food is divine, the venue is stylish but relaxed and the service is excellent. It might be a little more expensive than your average cafe style restaurant - but you certainly get what you pay for. We love it!

  • We went here for a date, and really it was a great experience from the warm welcome and throughout the time we spent there. The staff were very friendly and polite and would add to our good time there because of how we were treated and attended to. I would be happy to choose vivace again and again. Good job guys!

  • Stylish, with a bit of chic, stellar service, good food! Managed to make just one photo (of dessert), the rest disappeared too quickly 😅

  • This is my favourite place to go to in Bayside. I love the food and I love how lovely the staff are. What I particularly appreciate is how non judgemental the staff are. I regularly eat out on my own and I’ve never had an issue with that here. I’m always able to relax. Heartily recommend!

  • We came to celebrate our anniversary and had a full dining experience. I personally loved my lamb tagliatelle. It is not cheap, but it's worth it.

  • Best seafood linguine. Waiting staff were very attentive. Bread for dipping was warm and fresh. I just miss my sticky dates pudding, which was always on the menu. Vivace Ristorante is one of my favourite restaurants in Brighton.

  • We've been coming to Vivace for 9 years now - the food, service and warm ambiance makes it the perfect place for us to celebrate or just have a fabulous meal - Chris and his team always go above and beyond making us feel truly special. The seafood linguine is the best I've ever had and the oysters are always so fresh - the pannacotta the perfect end to a delicious meal. Truly Italian and simply the best! ❤️

  • Absolutely fantastic again. Well done to Chris and his team. No photos taken but we shared about 7 dishes and all were excellent. Tiramisu needs to return to menu 😁 Correction, it's back! 😄

  • Our dinner with friends at Vivace last night was fabulous. As always, friendly staff, fabulous food, the meals were well presented, lovely wines on offer, and a "thank you" from staff when we left. This all made for a lovely evening out. We will be back. Thank you Vivace.
