Vancouver Italian restaurant and live music venue rebrands

A Commercial Drive spot has changed names
Vivace on the Drive has replaced Osita on Commercial Drive.

A new name sits above a restaurant in Vancouver's Little Italy.

After just a year, Osita's sign at 1728 Commercial Dr has disappeared, with Vivace on the Drive taking its place.

While the name has changed, it appears not much else has. It's still advertised as a place for "European food" and "lively entertainment." Osita also mixed a "European" menu with live music.

The new menu is smaller than Osita's, but has a similar selection including brunch items like Croque Madame and focaccia sandwiches and dinner options like pork belly appetizers and Banoffee pie for dessert.

Vivace will also continue with live music; a schedule online shows they have performers lined up for the next week.
