Vivace Reviews

  • 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  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.

  • 5 star review  Welcoming, vibrant atmosphere on a chilly July Saturday night. Very popular, so book in advance. The seafood linguine was delicious and filling. The special roasted pumpkin soup with goat's cheese was a highlight. Thanks to the attentive staff, we stayed 3 hours over a wonderful bottle of wine. Definitely worth returning.

  • 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.
