Loved the food and ambience of this restaurant! Great food and service within close proximity of Old Market! Romantic or with friends you won't go wrong. Highly recommend Parma Rossa with chicken.

Vivace is an Old Market landmark that consistently serves great food. They were serving local foods and farmer direct foods long before anyone else was.

We reluctantly dined here because our first choice restaurant was closed already. Fried calamari was fresh and delicious. Lasagna was certainly enough and tasty. The chicken marsala, while it wasn't what I was expecting, was very tasty Found this little gem at the Market. Certainly worth a visit!

I am gluten and dairy sensitive and they were able to accommodate my food allergies. We were with a group of 12 and everyone enjoyed their dinner. Extensive wine list. Highly recommend.

We came here with a client for dinner and was delighted with the evening. You can't usually go wrong with Italian, however bring in Nebraska I wasn't so sure about seafood. We started off with some calamari that was not exactly very impressive... I felt like I was just eating the crunchy crumbs from the fryer with no flavor to... More

Warm welcoming ambiance and friendly attentive staff. Wine list was extensive with a very good selection of Italian wines but could have done with a few more modestly priced choices. Food was excellent and overall a very enjoyable experience.

The Old Market during the holidays is festively decorated with carriages decked out in holiday lights and Vivace is right in the center of it. The waiter was very helpful with suggestions of favorite dishes and clear descriptions of the evening specials. My husband and I ate there with two other couples so we had a wide selection of dishes... More
