  • 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  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  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  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.
