Vivace is Park Hyatt Aviara’s signature fine-dining venue, and one of the best of its class in San Diego. The restaurant features innovative Italian cuisine created in house from the finest and freshest ingredients. Handcrafted burrata and mozzarella cheeses are among the appetizer offerings as are house-cured meats like salumi and sopressata. Pastas are also made from scratch and so are the rich, flavorful sauces that dress them. Menu highlights include the braised short rib Bolognese with fettucine and Parmesan, and the Berkshire pork scallopini.  

Vivace’s cleverly structured tasting menus make it possible to sample a wide array of dishes. Simply decide on the prix-fixe option that best suits you and then select a choice from each category. Should you choose to enjoy wine pairings with your meal, be sure to consult the knowledgeable servers because their recommendations are spot-on.  But remember to save room for a sweet finale; the dessert menu encompasses all the Italian classics. If sweets aren’t your thing, though, opt for the artisan cheese board instead. You won’t be disappointed. 

While the cuisine is clearly the star at Vivace, the ambience certainly vies for the title.  The Mediterranean-style terrace offers breathtaking ocean views that dazzle at sunset. If inclement weather prevents you from dining alfresco, similar vistas can be captured near the floor-to-ceiling windows within Vivace’s elegant dining room. If you arrive on a chilly night, choose a seat by the crackling fireplace. And on a romantic date night, cozy up to one of the tables boasting plush, sofa-like seating complete with toss pillows. Whether you choose to dine inside or take a table outdoors, Vivace is an ideal venue for sharing great food and fine wine with your spouse, family or friends.
