Vivace ( /vē-ˈvä'-ˌchā/) is a musical term meaning "lively, brisk, quick and bright". Vivace Gourmet Pizza & Pasta is a unique one of a kind concept. We are a trendy, full service Pizzaria and Italian Restaurant featuring wines from around the globe, craft beers, and local produce, matched with the lost art and technique of "from scratch cooking", hand tossed pizzas, and true hospitable service. We are casual, yet sophisticated! We offer dine in as well as take out, delivery, catering, and private event services. We hope to see you soon! Bon appetito Vito DiSalvo Founder and Proprietor

Nice little Italian restaurant in a quiet strip mall. The service was very good. The server was never out of view. The food was oustanding. Pasta, bread, red sauces, etc. really good.

Dinner at Vivace is always a treat. The food is delicious and the service is excellent. We are always made to feel at home there, from the moment we walk in until the time we leave. We are never rushed and we are served with care. Special thanks to Marissa and Brendan who take good care of us, and make us happy to return time and again.

Their salmon, penne with vodka sauce, and meatballs are some of my favorites. Their pizza is yummy too. Save room for dessert! They have mini home made, hot donuts stuffed with cannoli cream. Yum!

Food was delicious! Portions were large. Staff was friendly. Since everything is made fresh to order, you can customize/change/add to the dish. We got there at 6, not busy move quite dining. Very very loud by the time we were leaving and the place was filled.

Third time we have eaten there. This time service was terrible even though they were dead per the waitress. We had reservations for 7 and when we got there no table was even set up because they were dead. This was a Sunday night at 6Pm. We felt they just did not care. The service was great the other two times we were there and served by the same waitress. The food was very good.

The food was good, the calamari is excellent, the pizza was good but not great. Unfortunately our server seemed distracted, left us unattended for long periods and didn’t seem interested in providing us with excellent service and this affected our overall experience. Can’t say I’ll be back or would recommend

Unfortunately, I cannot give Vivace a great review because the food experience there was just about average/fair.

Appetizers: The meatballs felt like rubber balls in the mouth... too chewy, quality of meat seemed to be lacking, and they were tasteless. They were in dire need of some salt, herbs and spices. I was not a big fan of the tomato sauce as well. No real consistency - very watery and again tasteless.
Appetizer: The calamari appetizer was good.. crispy without being burnt. Was not chewy.

Soup: there were two of us who had pasta fagioli.... I was not partial to the taste. Again, needed some salt and pepper. The other guest said that he enjoyed it.

Dinner: For the most part, it appeared that everyone at the table enjoyed his/her entree to some degree. The one guest who had the pizza claimed not to like the sauce on it and that although thin crusted, it was much too burnt. The branzino was fresh. The gnocchi and ravioli were said to be very tasty. No one had any meat so I cannot comment on that.

All in all, Vivace was not terrible but fair at best. I would not recommend it to any friend or anyone who wants to find a restaurant in that area.

The food was excellent! The service was slow, it was loud. There was a waiter or maitre d’ who was somewhat rude to his waiters and was very abrupt with customers.

The food was worth it, though.

VIVACE is a great neighborhood venue with authentic Italian cuisine. The pizza is wonderful and the pasta just like home made. Try the mussels appetizer.....better than I had in Amalfi.
It’s very family friendly and the price of food affordable. The staff is very accommodating, You won’t be disappointed.

We live in Delaware and visit this restaurant every winter when we visit our friend in Planttation. I absolutely LOVE the polenta fries and arancini. Over the past three years we have all enoyed different pasta dishes as well as their pizza. All were very tasty and made with fresh ingredients. It is a great spot for a simple dinner or if you want to have a little something special. The staff is very friendly and attentive. Their homemade sangria is very tasty. The early bird offer is a nice incentive if you are looking for a real bargain and have a big appetite. I told them I come 1000 miles for the polenta fries and I wasn’t kidding. They're de-licious!
