Our hotel recommended Vivace, and we were very happy with the location and the wonderful meal. The mushroom pasta with cream sauce was outstanding! We liked it so much we went for both lunch and dinner. It is right on the main street near one of the entrance gates to Siena, and has a lovely patio as well. The waitstaff... More

I've been to Vivace three times now and have never been disappointed. We really enjoy the seating on the back balcony, which you wouldn't know was there unless you happened to see it or someone told you. We were there one night and it started getting chilly. They passed out lap blankets to everyone! Who does that? The food was... More

We stayed in Siena five nights and walked past the restaurant many times. The sign out front claims a fabulous view. Well the view was good. A little to cool to eat outside. The service was good the food even better. We started with an appetizer for two. I had the pasta with sausage. My wife had the pork. Everything... More

Enjoyed our dinner here. Recommend the exterior terrace when the weather is nice....view is spectacular at sunset. Good selection of wines. Appeared to be short staffed the night we ate here but our server did his best to be attentive.

We met friends here for drinks one early evening during our stay in Siena. Unfortunately it had just rained hard so we could not go out onto the terrace but we had a look nad the view was beautiful from there (a rare find) We had a lovely cosy Apertivo inside with friendly staff so whether inside or out, Vivace...

The truffle pasta and fresh octopus are to die for. Not to sure why others have said the service was bad, everyone was polite and friendly !

On our second night in Siena it was pouring with rain so we did not want to travel far for a location. Vivace fitted the bill as it was not far away and seemed to have a nice décor and a reasonable menu, because of the weather we were not able to take advantage of the terrace and view. My... More

I went with my husband there the first night in Siena. It was recommended by the concierge. For appetizer, I had a zucchini roasted salad with mixed greens and young asiago cheese, almonds, mint and lemons which was delicious. My husband had the marinated octopus with lemon and oregano but the octopus was a bit chewy. For main dish, I... More

It is hard to see the exquisite terrace of Vivace from the street even though a little sign tells you it is there. After passing through the restaurant proper, you walk out onto a large space with tables set on plot a of grass overlooking a panoramic view of the Tuscan landscape with the bell tower of the Duomo above...

We stumbled across this restaurant whilst wondering the streets and were intrigued by the offer to come and look at the terrace view, we did and stopped for dinner at sunset. Wonderful! The food was great too, nice classic Tuscan menu, Tuscan sausage tagliatelle with mushrooms and truffle was great, with a nice glass of montepulgiano.

Thank Paul S
