Classic Italian starters include The Denmark, which features portabella mushrooms topped with mozzarella and marinara and The Osbourne, a house-made pierogi filled with potato and onion, served with house made sauerkraut and bacon. All burgers at Café Vivace are served with a pickle and house made slaw. Popular options include the bacon and bleu cheese burger and the grille ham burger. There are plenty of Italian entrées to choose from as well. Try the 4th Place, which is homemade gnocchi with Bolognese, tossed with mascarpone cheese. The South is another popular signature dish with lemon and garlic shrimp, served over cheddar cheese polenta.
This restaurant turned out to be a big surprise. I have special dietary needs and they were very, very accommodating. The food was delicious and the waiters made sure we were very happy. This is one I'd definitely return to and soon.
Good food and nice, casual setting.
Quiet dining room but a hoppin' bar with burgers and snacks.
Pass on this unless you want old-school Italian that values quantity of food more than quality. Huge portions saturated in cheese, sauce, etc. Chicken tough as leather. Service adequate at best.
