Vivace is a nice Italian centered, very nice date night restaurant, located at the Park Hyatt Aviara in Carlsbad, their service and setting has always been first class and I've never had less than a stellar time eating there or at the Park Hyatt. Plus they have oysters at the antipasti buffett! Well worth the $45 in unlimited oysters alone, let alone the other dishes.
So, I pass along this information passed along to me, they are having a new concept on Sunday brunch Italian style, I hope you check it out, here's the info, peace, Georgie Caye:
