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.
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.
amazing food! love it here, very friendly great for a romantic date or dinner with the family. also you can byo
We had a family dinner here tonight. The service was excellent, the food was most enjoyable. Lovely night was had by all.
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.

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 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.
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.
Hard to fault this amazing restaurant... The food is super good... If I am picky, I would say that; Like most restaurants, it can get noisy...
