Vivace Restaurant Review

: Danny Scordato has long been a part of the fine dining scene in Tucson. Scordato, who earned his stripes at an early age in the family business, knows the meaning of hospitality and, as such, everything about this Italian restaurant shines. The dining room is warm and inviting with touches of Italy in every nook and cranny. The menu has many highlights, so it’s hard to decide which way to go. One favorite, the seafood lasagnette, is layered with fresh sheets of tender pasta, seafood and spinach in a light tomato sauce. Seafood soup, rich with shrimp, scallops and salmon, features a red pepper-tomato broth; the accompanying fettuccine is almost unnecessary. Scordato’s --- the original family restaurant --- was known for its osso buco, and the owner continues the tradition here. Another winner is the veal piccata, all silky and tangy thanks to plenty of lemon and capers. It's easy to pair a wine from the Italian-influenced list.
