This was a great restaurant offering Contemporary Italian cuisine. The wine list was exquisite, offering many full-bodied wines from Italy, France, Spain and U.S. My wife and I, always along with others, visited this restaurant for at least 10 years and perhaps many more. . .never a meal that was not exciting. Unfortunately, according to the manager, the restaurant closed... More

We tried this place for dinner on a trip to Omaha and were disappointed. Service was just OK. The sauces on our pasta dishes were thin, watery and lacking in flavor. I have had much better Italian food in diners. We expected better from a place of this caliber. We won't go here again. There are too many other good... More

Went with a friend for a nice dinner. Good atmosphere, I had the tortellini Bolognese and it was very good. My friend had pork chop special and it looked good. Service was just very slow and inattentive. I asked for parmesan cheese and it took 15 minutes to get it.

Located in the Old Market, makes for a great outdoor seating and people watching. The waitstaff was very friendly and enjoyed the classic Italian food.

We celebrated an anniversary. The Mascarpone Dates are outstanding. We had great service, especially considering it was a busy Monday night. The waiter made some excellent recommendations to help us out (especially considering my wife's paleo diet). We both loved our entrees. Loved the Paella; that will probably be my go-to entree.

We chose Vivace based on its interesting, contemporary Italian menu. I also liked that the pasta dishes came in full & half sized dishes. The host and server were very pleasant and professional. Freshly baked bread sticks with a tasty olive tapenade were brought over quickly with our drinks. We chose the fresh Caprese salad and the delectable duck tart... More

We visited Vivace after an event in Omaha. The restaurant has a great locale in the Old Market area. We went in around 8pm on a Saturday night and were able to be seated right away. The menu has a good selection of Italian dishes, some of which you can customize with specific meats, chicken or seafood choices. Two in... More

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
