    We loved Pitch! My son who lives in the Dundee area had been here a few times and recommended it for my other son's 18th birthday. We brought a cake and they presented it and took care of everything. The service was outstanding. Our waiter and the general staff all seemed sincerely happy to be there. So refreshing. The food was great - my kids loved the pizza, we also had calamari, coal fired wings and salad and some truffle fries. There were six of us there, with beverages and food, our ticket was extremely reasonable. We will definitely be back. I always am honest on reviews, I would not say it if it was not deserved.

    Service is great, food is amazing! My favorites are the Truffle Fries, Rosemary Chicken Wings and the Mia Pizza. Their house made sausage is incredible. Only issue I run into is you cannot make a reservation for less than 4 people, and the place gets busy.

    My family and I come here when we can, and the food is always superb. What adds to this eating experience though, is that the owner is usually out in the restaurant helping the staff and talking to the patrons. He makes you feel like a friend, and we always enjoy being there.

    Dined on 8/22/2014
    Overall the food was quite good and the beer was cold. Our group of six shared a long table with a family of six and then a younger couple after the family left. The Mia pizza was okay, but we all thought it was too expensive given its size. My wife and I split a chop salad, which was good call because the salads are quite large...there was an ample amount for both of us. The service was great and the ambiance vibrant, but the restaurant is very noisy so if you are looking for a quiet romantic dinner look elsewhere. Parking is always a problem in Dundee, so plan ahead and give yourself an extra 5 or 10 minutes to park.

    We had a lunch at Pitch with seven of us from our school. The food was great; however, many in our party were surprised how slow the food prep was for our table. It was very slow in the restaurant and it took a long time to get our food. One of our party commented too that the special of the day - turkey burger was quite pricey for a lunch special. Overall everyone like their food and I would come back.

    this is the second time that I have left feeling like I've been publicly shamed. I was late for the reservation, trying to find a parking place. I admit that was my fault. I was greeted with the first admonishment that my reservation was almost given away. Fair enough, and had they given it away, I would have been disappointed, but would have understood. Then the 2nd hostess came by and told me yet again that I almost lost the reservation, she then proceeded to tell me that I should have called, that they are busy and can't accommodate people who are going to be late, etc. etc..... okay... I got it, I felt badly the first time I was scolded, 2nd time over the top. not worth the humiliation. Clearly they don't need my business.

    I've dined here several times and the food/service never disappoint. We waited 20 minutes even tough we had a reservation, but the owner immediately had two orders of their amazing meatballs with sauce and bread dropped on our table the second we sat down to apologize for the wait. I've had several pizzas and appetizers here and have yet to find one that wasn't liked. My girlfriend and I especially love the Marsala pizza goat cheese, figs, pears, and fresh arugula. The key to this place is that everything is crafted for you from cocktails to food. The pizza ovens produce the best crust and the chef puts the most unique and fresh ingredients on top. Fresh herbs, great sauce, savory meats, and awesome service keep me coming back to this gem.

    Our group has been to PITCH numerous times and we have the same complaint. The pizza, meatballs, onion rings, brussel sprouts were all delicious. The wait staff is attentive and excellent, but we will not return to Pitch. The noise level is untolerable in there. Absolutely obnoxious. Also, Willy Thiesen needs to include PITCH BLACK wine on the happy hour choices. c'mon! Please install carpeting and put some sort of decoratvie insulation on the ceiling to muffle the noise level in there. Good bye.

    We read great reviews of Pitch and were not disappointed! The dishes, every single one, were innovative combinations of tastes and textures rarely found in restaurants. The chef is creative and accomplished and our service was excellent. Our one minus was that it was hard to converse without talking loudly. Had there been more than four of us one end of the table would not have been able to hear the other. However, so much of that had to do with a very full restaurant full of diners having a good time. Definitely make reservations!

    We are from England, UK & were visiting Omaha for the weekend due to a competition being held at the Convention center. The restaurant was recommended to us by a local & I also googled best pizzerias & it looked exactly what we were after. It more than lived up to our expectations infact it way exceeded them. Food was tremendous but a special thanks must be given to our waiter- Sam I think his name was. It was only his 3rd night (Saturday 7th June) & he went out of his way to help us & provide an amazing friendly service. Please give him the credit he deserves. Unfortunately we fly back home today so won't be able to visit anymore.

    I love Pitch! So not your average pizzeria and the appetizers are delish! Brussel Sprouts are my favorite. This place has such a fun, vibrant atmosphere - it's just fun to be there! Food is wonderful - epsecially the Mia pizza. One of these days I'll force myself to try the others but the Mia is just so darned good! Reservation through OpenTable worked out really well...I tried calling first but got no answer...no problem because OpenTable hooked me up quickly!

    I have been to Pitch twice. Both times the food and service was excellent. The first time was around 2 on a Sunday and it was fantastic. The 2nd time was last Wednesday. They were very busy - hard to hear conversation. Had a toddler throwing a fit and a large party. But the food and service was excellent again. We had a great time!

    Dined on 5/3/2014
    We went for lunch on a busy Saturday, so service was expectedly a little slow, but friendly and consistent. However, the manager got involved with trying to speed up food delivery. In the process we watched him have part of our order sent to the wrong table. He then tried to blame it on our server and was a real jerk to her in saying that she clearly forgot to put in part of our order and it was her fault. She became flustered and apologetic. The manger apologized to our table but took no responsibility. Before leaving, I let the server know that I was able to see what happened from our table, we knew it wasn't her fault, and that her manager owed her an apology for his attempts at putting the mistake on her. I still love Pitch, Dundee's #1
