We were in town visiting our daughter at Creighton. We read the food network ratings of the best pasta dinners and saw Dante on the list.
We are from Milwaukee and went to Ristorante Bartolotta which was rated #6 and saw Dante on the list so decided to try it.
The rigatoni Bolonese was amazing and the pizza was great. Marcus was a great server and the gelato was incredible-blood orange and peanut butter were great and the serving was huge. Our meal was one of the best ever!
Great restaurant, we’ve already recommended it to 2 friends.
Glad we stopped by, we will be back!

Dante never disappoints! Was there for a business lunch and all were equally impressed with how delicious the food was from start to finish, in addition to top notch service. This is the place to take visitors/clients and show ‘em Omaha is legit!!

We had never been before and decided to try it and ultimately it was very good. Overall, I would say we would come back, the wait staff was very friendly and knowledgeable although it would probably not be on a frequent basis due to the cost, i.e., it’s a bit pricey compared to other similar options.

Dante's pizza is as close as it gets to what you'll find in Firenze or any other northern Italian town's wood-fired pizzerias. Very authentic.

Best Pizza since NYC. Cannot wait to return. Attentive staff, but not intrusive. Could be a bit quieter. No soundproofing on ceiling or walls. Too industrial for these old ears.

First off I use to love Dante’s. I hadn’t been for awhile so my friend and went last night a Friday night. Busy which is great. Our sever was the worse ever!! She had no voice, she had zero clue what she was doing. We only saw her maybe 2x she didn’t upscale, she didn’t offer any suggestions on wine when we asked. We got a cab/franc.

The wine was super warm. We ordered the meatballs which came out before our cocktails/ they were semi warm not to my likening. I usually love the meatballs there. Then we order dinner. Small greens/Brussels. They arrived before our main course. I had the spag/clams. I had maybe 6-8 small clams zero sauce dry as hell! My friend had the Bolognese. She like it.

No dessert. I was soo very disappointed in Dante’s last night. Forno isn’t much better. Let’s get together guys. If you can’t handle a busy night you might need to adjust somethings. Service horrible/food so so.

Marcus, Ron, Charlotte and crew were fabulous and recommended some great dishes along with wine. The pizza was unique and tasty and the entrees were delicious. The chicken with gnocchi is melt in your mouth.
Do not pass up dessert here. They are homemade and some of the best I’ve ever had.

We love Dante. It has become our Friday night spot. However tonight we had our usual pizza and it was cold. But we go often and this is the first time we have had a cold pizza.

I've been to Dante's before, and the first time I went, we received impeccable service. This time was certainly not the same. The waitress never brought us a wine list, she made no suggestions, when we asked her about vegan options that could be prepared she just shrugged and said yeah. When we ordered our appetizers, she delivered them and immediately asked what we wanted to eat, instead of giving us time to actually eat and then order after. We asked for a glass of a sweet wine, but she still never brought the wine list and came with a Moscato. My boyfriend ordered their lobster ravioli and had waited fifteen minutes before she brought us a spoon. Overall, this server was incredibly deficient in her duties, I would not feel comfortable returning as a result.

This reviewer eats out a lot. My wife and I love good food. And when Dante's was established ten years ago, we were thrilled since it is so close to our home. And while it took a few months for it to come together, it has become our favorite destination. It has so much going for it. Quality, service, great chef, freshest of fish, pasta and most everything in house. Try it.

The wait staff is what brings me and my wife back again and again. It is so professional, they know food. Chef Nick is so well trained and has been to Italy as often as I go to Council Bluffs. Okay, perhaps not a good indicator. But he has been so well trained in Italy and the USA. Pasta? In house and the best. Filsh? Flown in within 24 hours. Wine? Every region of Italy represented.

Food was excellent
Drink orders took 10 to 15 minutes each time.
They might need to add additional bar staff to improve that.

Legitimate Neapolitan pizza in Omaha. Always worth a visit. Nearly all other items are great too.

If you’re idea of good pizza is godfathers or big Fred, don’t go here. get something frozen from hyvee, you’re hopeless in the pizza department, sorry

I love Dante. Everything on the menu is excellent, although I have trouble leaving my favorites. The pizza is excellent. And it is hard to avoid the butterscotch gelato. The wine list is excellent.
