Vivace Reviews

  • 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  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.

  • 5 star review  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.

  • 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  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.
