Charlotte, NC 28204


The James Beard award-winning restaurant design firm, The Johnson Studio, is responsible for the cozy, rustic, chic Italian-influenced setting at Vivace Charlotte, which delivers a seasonally focused trattoria menu. Antipastas include house-cured meats, regional Italian cheeses with mostardas and marmalades, seasonal bruschetta and classic thin crust Neapolitan pizzas. The remainder of the menu features housemade pastas, seafood and other dishes that revolve around local, seasonal products that encompass all of Italy's broad cuisine. The regional Italian wine list focuses on smaller Estates that produce hand-crafted wines. Signature cocktails are crafted from Vivace's house-prepared cellos, and the beer selection includes well-known favorites alongside the new exciting wave of Italian artisanal beers.
