Vivace is one of my very favorite restaurants in Omaha. Sometimes I just go for an appetizer and salad and sometimes for the full monty. But whichever you decide you will certainly have a great meal. I had the pork osso buco on my last visit and it was superb. The piccata, marsala and risotto dishes are very nice. Love... More

Our server was very nice but slow to deliver but we didnt feel it was her fault. I think she had too many tables, but all in all we were pleased and will go back.

This is a very nice, upscale Italian restaurant with great food and friendly, prompt service. The pricing is very good and you get a good portion of food. We go on special occasions and have not been disappointed. Old World feel to the place!

Nothing special. Limited not so fancy menu. Service sucked no personal interaction. Very small portions. Ordered the full portion and thank god I didn't get the half. Waitress didn't make any small talk. In and out in 35 mins nothing great

We decided to try this restaurant again while walking in the Old Market last week, it had been 10 years or more since we were there. It was a beautiful evening so we sat outside - it was a great choice - no insects and good people watching and we could listen to the street musicians. For an appetizer we... More

I really enjoyed the location and the service. I had the paella which was very good, and they serve a very generous amount of food!

Unfortunately the food is disappointing. We ate the lasagne which lacks flavour, despite having many listed ingredients. It's definitely below average on quality and isn't cheap. However, service was brilliant and the restaurant itself has a lovely atmosphere.

Waitress was very courteous and attentive. Food was absolutely wonderful and we were seated outside and able to listen to the local corner musicians. A cool breeze flowed along the sidewalk and made the afternoon even more enjoyable. I could have died and been very content in doing so!!
