Good enough to go back.
We always have a great tjme at Vivace's restaurant. Great wine list for Italian wines. I alternate between five dishes that are always good so I have enough variety to make it interesting. And when they open up the outside dining it's better.

Great food, atmosphere and service!
Vivace has become our go-to restaurant for special occasions. My wife and I had our first date, wedding dinner and anniversary dinners at Vivace and they have never failed to reassure us that we've made the right choice in making Vivace "our place".

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Omaha. We love the Old Market and the food is always delicious!
5/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food is consistently good here. One of the real delights for us this past visit, was we were reminded just how good the waitstaff is here. Our waiter was pleasant and professional. The atmosphere in the restaraurant is tremendous. It is an awesome place from food to service to atmosphere. You won't be disapointed.

Mother's day lunch out
The service was very attentive and polite and the food was really good. We each had a diverse range of entries, and we enjoyed them all. We were comfortable there as a family with a young child, but it would also make a good date night venue (we plan to go back for one soon).

We are fairly regular customers
We are fairly regular customers of Vivace's over the years, and they have yet to disappoint. The menu is ever changing, and the quality is always stellar. Will always recommend this to out of town visitors. We have brought guests in from all over the country, and they are always amazed with the ambience and staff. Definite gem in the Omaha restaurant scene.

Great food. Great service. Another great experience.

Fantastic Service, Great Food
Girlfriend had the rack of lamb, I had the mango alfredo pasta with pulled duck. Both delicious. Our server was one of the best! Will be frequenting Vivace now!
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
We greatly enjoyed the duck and the salmon...best version of each we could remember. Nice treatment for the morels and the fiddlehead ferns, as well. Truly outstanding food.
5/31/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent, reasonably priced food..
...and great service. Vivace's is a wonderful place for a reasonably-priced meal, with quality ingredients, presentation. The ambience is great for a romantic dinner or dinner with the family. Can't recommend Vivace's strongly enough.

Recently went to Vivace to have dinner with a great friend I had not seen in years. Our table was ready and waiting for us when we arrived early for our reservation. We were served by one of the restaurant's new servers and he did a wonderful job. Was knowledgeable, polite, and friendly. I chose to create my own pasta and it was delicious and the dessert was too. I will definitely be back to visit and try out a new dish!

Love the menu-- a variety
Love the menu-- a variety of choices and prices. Everything was so fresh and wonderfully prepared. Also I love that it is traditional Italian but also creative and unique. Very nice, never boring.

Wait staff was professional and kind. Food was fantastic. We will definitely be back. Everyone should give this place a try

A pleasant surprise!
My wife and I moved here from the DC area where restaurants are all competing for the top spot on The Washingtonian's Top 100. Needless to say, it is a place of great food and great service. I believe that Vivace would find a very good spot in competing amongst the top on that list. I was very pleased with each aspect of the meal, which I am finding is a rare enjoyment in Omaha. A lot of single course specialties among the restaurants, but not a complete overall great on food. Vivace has hit that spot. The only thing that hurt my feelings was ordering one of their dessert specials, my "pig" cookie never made it out. I can only assume that they had run out of the pig-shaped cookies.
6/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went with a group of friends. The service was outstanding. The calamari and bruchetta were very good. My husbands pasta however was mushy and the sauce was ok. I had the lamb salad and it was good
7/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
ViVace has a reputation for good food and location. It certainly did not disappoint
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We came to Vivace to celebrate two July birthdays. The menu is diverse, so everyone could find something to suit their budget and tastes. Our waitress was knowledgeable and very helpful. She met our every need. The meals arrived in a timely manner and were beautiful in presentation. Not one complaint was heard, everything was delicious. The desserts were fabulous!
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
I am a repeat customer
Excellent Omaha restaurant. We started with stuffed mushrooms on top of a marinara sauce. Yum. We devoured the scrumptious dates wrapped in bacon. What a treat. The menu had great variety from steaks to seafood to pasta. Our party of 4 each ordered a pasta dish. You choose the type of pasta you want, your sauce and you have options for meat or meatless. I chose the creamy pesto topped with grilled shimp on a spicy noodle. Excellent. For desert, we shared a large portion of tiramasu. Enough for 4 people. The restaurant has an extensive wine list but we chose to bring our own from California. There is a corkage fee for $10 per bottle. It didnt show up on the bill!! Excellent service. Thank you Vivace!! We will be back!!

Dinner For 6
Very good all around, the pasta was great and if you like gorgonzola sauce get it here. The only downer was that our otherwise very good waiter forgot to bring bread with the salads and we first timers didn't know better until the meal was over. Disappointing since we now hear their bakery fare is not to be missed. Good place, we'll go back.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful Friday Evening
We do "celebrate Friday" at our house. Friday night was a perfect night to dine outside, enjoy the market. Vivace, our waiter and the food were all wonderful as usual. Thanks!
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
I went to Vivace with my boyfriend for our anniversary. We had never been before and were excited to try something new. We loved the ambience and the exposed brick and our waiter was very nice and helpful. We ordered the bruschetta, which wasn't necessary because you basically get bruschetta free with your meal (which we did not know) anyways.
We will be back again soon!
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've never been there, even though it's been around for a long time. We had a gift card and decided to try it out. It was delicious, we want to go back :)

Vivace is our favorite Italian
Vivace is our favorite Italian eating place in the area. The food is wonderful and the service excellent, a true taste of Italian cooking.

Will return to enjoy again soon!
The food, service and menu were excellent. Would recommend to all.

Early evening dinner . . .
Simple dinner with wife and a visiting work associate. They both ordered pasta's, one with marinara and the other carbonara. I ordered the Seafood Paella. All three dishes where very good.
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
I went to Vivace's for dinner before Homecoming and it probably left a better impression than the actual dance. The bread and the meal were both fantastic. I really appreciated how the waitress served us even though we were teens, most people are rude due to low expectations. They have a very long wine selection that I couldn't help but be astounded by. All together I had an amazing night and will definitely be returning.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband brought me to Vivace to celebrate my Birthday and the entire night was perfect. The food was fantastic and service even better. If your looking for a place to celebrate a special occasion of just a place to relax outside on the patio with good food and wine I highly reccomend Vivace!
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Still a very good restaurant.
We have been here many times over the years. The service is always good. The food is always good. They vary their menu so if you like to try stuff you don't/won't make at home with some unusual flavors, this is the place. They also have some very standard food for people who may not be foodies. Moderate prices, more than bar and grille, but less than fancy places. Always a good peaceful atmosphere. Drinks from the bar or bottle are good as well, not watered down corporate style like the chains in West O. Vivace, overall, is one of our favorite places.

Best Creme Brulee I have ever had
This was our first time eating here. The waitress was very attentive, had great suggestions on our orders. The food was some of the best we have ever had. Pulled duck pasta was excellent, lots of pulled duck. The mango vegetable pasta was also very good. Dinner comes with lots of good bread and large size portions. The creme brulee was some of the best we have ever eaten. My husband and I greatly enjoyed this restaurant and will be coming back.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Night Out
Our visit to Vivace and wow what an experience. The mushroom appetizer was superb! Our entrees were just right and of course we had to have the apple dessert. Service was excellent. Waitress was very genuine and did an excellent job of tending to our evening.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service was great!
We had a lovely evening at Vivace. Service from (Scott, I believe) was great. He was prompt, friendly, funny. We enjoyed him.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good As Always
The food and service was/is outstanding. No complaints except that the noise level was over the top. Don't know if it is the hard surfaces. It wasn't music it was people. I know you can't do anything about that.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful Food! Great Atmosphere!
We were up in Omaha for a wedding. My wife and I wanted an evening out with fine food within a reasonable distance from our hotel in the Old Market District. Vivace was the answer! I tried the "Duck Duo" and my wife had the tender loin and we both loved our meals. They were presented exquisitely and cooked to perfection. Our wait person was wonderful and offered lots of great advice from appetizers to the wine list. This is one of the better restaurants in the area. They came recommended from our friends who live in Omaha.... I can see why....
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
The wine, prime rib and dessert were wonderful! Service was excellent!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always enjoy Vivace. Love the appetizers, dinner, server was fantastic - very attentive but not pushy, great ambience, and always get us out on time to be at the Orpheum without rushing.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Service Great Food Great Wine
We went to Vivace for dinner before heading to a show at the Orpheum. We were not in any hurry, but our waiter (Jake) was so sweet and tried to make sure all of our drinks, appetizers, and main courses were served fairly quickly to make sure we had plenty of time to get to the theatre. He took excellent care of our table, was very attentive, and the food was wonderful! We had never been to the restaurant; so it was a great experience, and we will definitely be back.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Every time I dine at Vivace
Every time I dine at Vivace down in the Old Market I'm never disappointed. Great food, service, and ambience! Give it a try.

Vivace is a great restaurant
Vivace is a great restaurant in Omaha's Old market. The menu is varied, has reasonable prices, and wonderful atmosphere. It is one of our favorite Omaha restaurants.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We ate at Vivace before a function we at the Orpheum. The food was very good. I had the Raw Tomatoe Basil and my husband had Paella. We both enjoyed our meals a lot. My salmon was cooked just just and loved the bits of fresh mozzerella in my pasta.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Lovely Time
I made a reservation for 1230. We showed up a little before that and were seated immediately. The hosts were kind and efficient. The food was wonderfully delicious and beautifully arranged as it always is. This place is a must for anyone in the dating scene.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a definite "must do again!" The food was marvelous, portions generous and service great!

Italian food in a warehouse setting
The restaurant is in a building with the old exposed Walls and what looks like the original ceiling. Very cool. It is interesting that an Italian restaurant has paella on the menu but it does and it is very good as are the pizzas. Desert was outstanding.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a great experience there! The servers were great! Food was a little slow to come out, but we had a large group. Overall, everything was really great!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM

We always have a great time at Vivace's. The food and the service are great!

The Bolognese sauce on any of there freshly made noodles is 2 die for..... This is probably one of those restaurants where the menu changes a bit from time to time. THE BEST Italian in this town hands down!!
