Vivace Restaurant Review

: Chef Daniel Scordato continues to serve a blend of traditional and modern fare in Vivace’s new digs in the Foothills. Lunch is always nice, but we prefer dinner when the lights of the city below shine and the kitchen steps it up a notch. Scordato keeps some of the family classics on the menu; the stuffed mushrooms are a case in point, and they work nicely with any of the wines listed. For entrées on the pasta side consider the seafood lasagnette: papery thin sheets of pasta layered with a mix of seafood and sautéed spinach in a rough-chop fresh tomato sauce. We also recommend the veal piccata with a bright lemony sauce dashed with garlic and capers. End your meal with the fruit napoleon or the warm chocolate cake; the former is light and crispy, while the latter is a tribute to chocolate and generous enough for two (the menu notes there’s a twenty minute wait so you may want to order it early).
