Have you ever taken a trip out to Vivace during one of Tucson’s glorious sunsets?

The restaurant overlooks the city and the combination of the twinkling lights at night and the delicious bites from the kitchen are enough to make anyone’s heart flutter.

Daniel Scordato’s longtime Tucson Italian food staple, Vivace Restaurant, came to fruition back in 1993, and his last name is something that’s been recognized in the Tucson food scene for decades.

The Scordato family’s roots in the restaurant business date back to 1947 in Patterson, New Jersey. After relocating to Tucson in the 1960s, Scordato’s Restaurant opened in 1972, and Daniel Scordato — just 14 years old at the time — began working in the kitchen with his father and brothers.
