  • 5 star review  Finally able to visit after the Covid lock down. We had a very enjoyable lunch with a friendly, knowledgeable, down to earth, attentive waiter. The food was superb....the Vivace signature seafood linguini for me and the shoulder of lamb for hubby. This was followed by the tiramisu and cannoli and coffee. Would very much like to visit again in the near future. Ambience was nice, calm and peaceful. Congratulations to Chris and the team for a wonderful restaurant.

  • 5 star review  Good Friday special - Home Delivered "The Ultimate Lunch/Dinner Box" We ordered home delivery for Good Friday and it was absolutely brilliant. Our order was delivered on-time and the quality of the food was absolutely spot-on. Also ordered a bottle of Prosecco which was a great drop. We have dined at the restaurant in the past so we are very pleased to see these guys adapting to the significant challenges associated with C-19 i.e home delivery and pick-up service. Very tough times for anyone in the hospitality industry at the moment but these guys are a terrific local business and I really hope they are still trading on the other side! Try them and you won't be disappointed. Trust me on this one as I absolutely love my food and I am always in search of businesses and folks that provide outstanding customer service- which these guys do!!

  • 5 star review  Our first dinner out after iso and it didn’t disappoint. Our meal was fresh and delicious, the calamari and zucchini and thinly sliced carpaccio as a starter was to die for. My husbands seafood linguini and my gnocchi was first class. As always it was delightful to see Andrew and Chris again and to experience their warm welcome and professional service. Thank you Andrew for recommending that beautiful smooth full bodied Italian white wine, the best!

  • 5 star review  Excellent food and service. Staff are very attentative, very happy and respectful and make you feel special and important. You are greeted with a warm smile and also bidded farewell with a pleasant goodbye and door opening as we left. Food was just perfect in flavour and presentation. My husband and I enjoyed dinner for 2 for my birthday today, and really enjoyed it, including a birthday voucher from Vivace. It was a bit noisy but that comes with going out at this time of year with Christmas events etc too. So thanks to Chris who personally comes round and serves and makes sure all is well and chats a little as well, and another gentleman who was very cheery and attentive (sorry don't know his name), but thank you. So we highly recommend Chris and his staff at Vivace, the food and service was excellent and the nothing was wrong. A memorable evening was enjoyed by us.

  • 5 star review  Love Vivace. The service is great- they go out of their way to make you feel a valued customer. Tonight my lockdown order hadn’t gone through (my fault) yet Chris and Andrew managed to fill it in the busiest hour of their day. The oysters were the biggest and most succulent I’ve had in ages- this is one place you can eat seafood with complete confidence. The rest of the meal was superb thanks to the quality of the ingredients and excellent cooking thereof. Well worth the money. We’re so lucky to have a local restaurant of this reliably high calibre.

  • 5 star review  I’m very surprised with the negative comments as we have only ever experienced great food and service over the last 12 years. Thanks so much for our wonderful wedding anniversary dinner last night Chris. The gnocchi is truely the best in Melbourne and you must never stop making it! Looking forward to dining at the restaurant in person.

  • 5 star review  A great Restaurant with a modern Italian/Australian menu. Food is always good and pricing reasonable. Good wine selection but expensive. Nice decor and friendly and attentive staff. Owner Chris is always very helpful.
