  • 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  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.

  • 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.
