Vivace Brighton - the love-child of Vivaldi and Liberace? No, not in the slightest. Elegant, welcoming and well-loved Italian restaurant in the sometimes-bereft-of-great-restaurants neighbourhood of Brighton? Yes! Hit the nail on the head. Found along Bay Street in Brighton, Vivace lends the strip a bit of sophistication and high-quality dining with its elegant and chic restaurant and Italian-inspired menu. This suburban Italian restaurant has a very classy and warm atmosphere, with soft and intimate lighting. It’s a friendly and relaxed neighbourhood dining spot, albeit with the sort of professional service and lovingly assembled menu that places it a few notches above the ordinary. Downstairs, big windows open out onto bustling Bay Street. Upstairs, Vivace hosts exclusive dinners and cocktail parties in its private function space. Vivace boats 4 different private dining rooms, outdoor seating and a full bar. Especially good if you reside south side.
