Vivace Reviews

  • 5 star review  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.

  • 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  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  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.

  • 5 star review  Our first dinner out after iso and it didn’t disappoint. Our meal was fresh and delicious, the calamari and zucchini and thinly sliced carpaccio as a starter was to die for. My husbands seafood linguini and my gnocchi was first class. As always it was delightful to see Andrew and Chris again and to experience their warm welcome and professional service. Thank you Andrew for recommending that beautiful smooth full bodied Italian white wine, the best!

  • 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!!
