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.
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.
Great to see the Vivace team back. Nice to sit in the restaurant. Food as always was great. Service great but relaxed even though they were working to strict guidelines. Call out to bayside, support local and make the close out to the year a great one for Chris and the team and our other fine restaurants.
We were a party of 4 for my partner's birthday. The service was fantastic - attentive, personal and informative. The atmosphere is perfect with a lively, busy vibe. I was surprised to see another entire floor upstairs full of happy diners when I ventured up to the find the bathroom. Incredible to think they kept the whole place running seamlessly and without effort. The food was exception: entree and mains through to dessert. Five starts easily.
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.
We had a family dinner here tonight. The service was excellent, the food was most enjoyable. Lovely night was had by all.
Honestly, the single greatest restaurant in Brighton. The only thing better than the food is the team. Try the lamb! 😍
As always - a great evening at Vivace. Thank you Chris, Andy and all of the team for your outstanding hospitality!
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.
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.
