    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "We've been going to Spezia since it was Lastrada 72, and it continues to be a favorite. While the general experience was very good, the service was exceptional. The wait staff is to be commended at every turn."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "The food was fantastic. I am never disappointed when I dine at Spezias!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Had not been to Spezia in many years and had heard much about how good it was. So we went and took another couple for a celebration. We could not have been more pleased. The menu was extensive, the food excellent, our waiter above and beyond, and the wine wonderful. We will definitely be going back soon as this had become our new favorite local restaurant. Cannot rave enough about everything!!!!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Food was amazing, presentation was beautiful. We were less than pleased with our server Allison. When we arrived, the restaurant was full. Before our food came many of the diners began to leave and the remaining diners were a very manageable level. I use the term "manageable" because Allison, on no less than two occasions, excused her absence on the part of being "busy". We had to ask another server for a drink order we had placed with her that he immediately brought. We waited for nearly 10 minutes for an order of Tiramisu. However, no delay in bringing the check. We felt as though we weren't worth the time that Allison invested in her obvious distraction that day. Still, would dine there again; sans Allison."

  • "All three of us were very unimpressed with our meals. By far and away it was the worst meal that we have each eaten in a very long time. We all ordered something different. Needless to say we will not be coming back."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "I love their Patio but you do get street noise. Hard to avoid with 72nd Street. Our waiter was amazing and would go again just for the service. I had the Risotto Summer Special with chicken, peas and asperagus. It was ok but not amazing. My husband had Pork Tenderloin and like very much. Yes, I will try again but will order something different."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "I always go for the lamb...it's awesome. Way better than any steak house in omaha. If you want lamb, go here! The angel hair pasta is perfect. The thicker pasta was a bit doughy so stick to the angel hair. All the deserts and drinks were great."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "I have dined at Spezia for over ten years and love it, but this time was a nightmare, it took us 20 minutes to get a waiter and another long time to be served, we had to ask for the wine and bread two times. I have noticed this has been happening since the change in manager"

  • "The seafood meals we enjoyed were made to perfection! Couldn't have been happier with the quality of the food and service!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Excellent meal, extensive unique menu, and fantastic service. I enjoyed the Spezia Salad as an appetizer and a tuscan tuna dish that I have never seen on another menu for dinner. Both were delicious. Portion size was above average, which makes this place a very good value too. Visit with confidence! Enjoy!"
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "We went on a friend's recommendation and were pleased with the experience. The meal was very good, but overall it was busy and a bit noisy. This was during CWS week, so it may not be the norm."
    Dined on 6/20/2014

    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Spezia is one of our favorites where my husband enjoys the seafood options. Service is always good. My best compliment is that when you make a reservation for a specific time, you never wait! It's awesome! We will continue to go back!!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Superb food And service. Maybe some light opera or instrumental music in the background would be a nice touch? I kept hearing others' conversations. My wife and I thought it was odd that the servers wore ties and the hostess wore a white tank top with a print - but it gave us a little laugh. Overall very good. Would not recommend for young children as there is no children's menu and the customer base was mostly couples."

  • "Our appetizer came out and about two minutes later our entrees arrived. My wine glass was empty for a few minutes before another glass arrived. We were offered a free dessert which was thoughtful. The food and wine quality matched the price but the service did not."

  • "Wonderful restaurant for a date night or just a casual business lunch. Service and kitchen staff were flexible on dietary needs and offered great suggestions. Definitely going back soon!"
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Spezia has gone downhill, arrived 5 minutes before reservation and told by one of 4 hostesses to have a seat at the bar. Seated 25 minutes after reservation. Air conditioner barely worked. Server was an Olive Garden graduate nice but somewhat clueless. Food was blah and tasteless, not going back anytime soon."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Great food decent service. Nice romantic evening! Will go back again simply for the food"
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "The food is always delicious. If you are someone who likes to put half of your order in a to-go box before you start, this might not be the place for you, especially if you don't want to open the box until after you leave the restaurant."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Our server was great. That's about it. Honest to god, Fazolis or whatever its called, has better alfredo. Our appetizer was inferior to Little Ceasers italian cheese bread. Me and my wife had water and the bill was 60+ bucks. I see no point in ever returning, and I dont understand the raving reviews. At least our server was good. "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Do Not Pay Attention To Any Of The Negative Reviews. This Restaurant Has Excellent Food And Atmosphere. The Service Was Also Very Good. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "I am here for business lunches quite a bit and find it to be a good place for that (value, ambiance, location, etc.). However, I took my wife here for an anniversary dinner and found the portions pretty small, prices much higher. There wasn't even any 'pretty' presentation to the plates when served. Just a smaller sirloin steak for me. I substituted a mixed veggies for the standard potatoes and the amount of veggies was so small (veggies are cheap, aren't they?), I thought uploading a picture of the plate onto Facebook for fun, but my wife asked me not to do it. Going forward, I think I'll just stay with Spezia's for lunch."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "The food was good but very expensive for a very little amount of food. Atmosphere was great and our service was good as we'll. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Great selection, fair pricing, we like to done at Spezia at least once a month."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "We have been to Spezia many times and the food never disappoints. This time we had an outstanding server, Cleveland. He went above and beyond and both my husband and I had a great time. Highly recommend Spezia and kudos to Cleveland. He's fantastic!"

  • "Usually forget about this restaurant thanks to its odd location but glad we remembered & went - great food. Although only 6 of us, we were seated back in the party room so missed out on the ambience of the main rooms. Once seated it took forever to get a wine list and then (because there were several of us all with different tastes) asked for another and was told there was a shortage? Given the mark-up on restaurant liquor wonder why management would allow this to occur? Here's an idea - either put your liquor list in your regular menus or print more wine lists! "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "A friend provided us a gift certificate for Spezia and I surprised my wife with a nice dinner for two after I had been working a week of 14-hour midnight shifts. Using Open Table, I asked for a romantic table and when we arrived, they immediately ushered us to a lovely, semi-private, candle-lit booth. We enjoyed good service, excellent wine, and wonderful food. Just because you've been married 34 years doesn't mean you can't date your beautiful bride. Thanks for making it possible!"

  • "I was just looking for a close place for dinner while traveling and found this gem. The food was wonderful, the service was very attentive and oustanding. The waitress (Ashley, I believe) suggested the tiramisu, which was fantastic. Overall, would definitely eat there again."
