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

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
