Cannot fault Vivace. Great atmosphere, Great food, Great service. See you next time.
Thanks to Chris and Andy and the staff for a fabulous Duck and Pinot dinner on Wednesday night. As always, the food was magnificent as well as the service. Hope to see you soon.
We had the take-away Seafood Linguini tonight. Excellent as always. Thank you.
Great experience, the food is amazing, wonderful service.
Professional and excellent service. Staff was friendly and attentive, providing a fantastic dining experience. Came here before in 2017 and again today (4 Sep), was very impressed both times. Some of the best Italian food I’ve had in Australia. The food is delicious and the set lunch menu is an extremely good deal.
Absolutely delicious. Well worth going.
We had an absolutely fantastic evening with all the delicious dishes and great wine. The service was great having Roberto as our waiter,who was very attentive and highly professional and added aditional italian flavour to the already fantastic authentic italian experience. We started with a mixed plateau of antipasti complimented well with chilled Prosecco.The arrancini followed and they were absolutely delicious. I chose porcini&king brown mashroom risoto with goat cheese and truffle mousse and crispy leak. it was just perfect complimented with Shiraz. The salmon fillet with quinoa and pearly cous-cous,fennel and chargrilled zucchini was simply fantastic. The deserts did not disappointed either.The dark Belgian chocolate marquise with honey wipped ricotta and citrus segments and candid walnuts was the desired great finish of the meal. We would love to come back again and would recommend it as a "must go" culinary destination in Brighton.
We tried the 18 hours slow cooked lamb from their menu, trust me, we were transported to heaven and back. It was extremely delicious, fantastically cooked with so much love and care, as right from the very first bite, we fell in love with this dish. Highly recommended, I bet this one is the best dish from their menu. And do try this for an out of the world gastronomic experience. The taste still lingers in my mouth. Worth a visit.
As always - a great evening at Vivace. Thank you Chris, Andy and all of the team for your outstanding hospitality!
So pleased to be back.
