Diner Reviews
  • "We had a party of 4, so not a big deal, but our waiter was wonderful at watching our glasses and keeping them full. The lamb and duck were some of the best we've had; and being from Texas we have them pretty often. It is a very nice place for a celebratory dinner. Not recommended for kids. ..it is more of an upscale, adult only restaurant."

  • "We enjoyed our dinners, sesame encrusted grouper and filet mignon. We were looking forward to a quiet evening, but we ended up in a booth between two very loud groups of 8 or so. We don't have issues with energetic crowds enjoying themselves, but it wasn't what we were looking for that night. We ate here once before and the ambience was more on the romantic side."

  • "One of my favorite restaurants to bring out of towners. This time though, it was a let-down. The food was just "ok". And for the price, I expect more. And the server was unimpressive also. At one point, she dropped and broke a wine glass right behind my wife and myself. She didn't say or act as if anything had happened, and calmly walked away. We found out later that she DID know she'd broken the glass. But, she didn't warn anyone at the table about the glass, nor did it get cleaned up very well. As we were leaving, several loud 'crunches' were heard."

  • "I have been to Spezia twice since the new manager has taken over. Lots of new wait and front end staff experiencing a learning curve. The food remains top-notch, so I'll keep giving them a chance to improve."

  • "My husband and I have been going to Spezia for special nights out for the ten years it has been opened. Love the food, the wine and the ambiance. Service has always been very attentive and friendly. We both loved our meals, I got a Special that had a vegetable risotto and chicken and my husband got a favorite of his with seafood in red sauce. Very happy with Spezia."

  • "We recently visited Omaha for a couple of days. This was our choice for Friday dinner with our daughter and 8 year old granddaughter. Salads were great and pastas wonderful. The grilled salmon got high marks, but the Margherita flatbread was just okay. We loved that they had Stella Artois draft beer. Next time we'll try the ribeye and tenderloin."

  • "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!!!!"

  • "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."

  • "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"

Both were delicious. Portion size was above average, which makes this place a very good value too. Visit with confidence! Enjoy!"

  • "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."

  • "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."
