Wonderful food and atmosphere. Wait for food was a little long, but they were busy for a Saturday night. Definitely will be back.

Pasta Amore is great from menu selection to service and prices. Only thing I'd improve on is the beer selection. My spouse does not drink wine so having a bit more to choose from beer-wise would be good.

Eggplant Parmesan was delicious!
It came with a side of tasty angel hair pasta, perfect sprinkled with Parmesan cheese. Loved the appetizer combo with artichokes, tomato/mozzarella cheese, peppers, and fried calamari. Had plenty left over for a meal the next day.

This has been one of our favorite restaurants in Omaha for 15 years. Consistently outstanding food and service! Authentic delicious Italian food and the desserts made by pastry chef Tiffani are amazing. We have eaten at many great restaurants in Omaha for 15 years and Pasta Amore is at the top of our list of our favorite restaurants in Omaha. Manager Robin takes guest service to a whole new level. Everyone is so welcoming and they all seem sincerely glad you are there. I highly recommend Pasta Amore. A huge thank you to entire Pasta Amore staff who makes our dining experience a memorable one time and time again.

An overall average experience. The service was slow, and it wasn't a short staffing situation. Our server was friendly. The Bruschetta was tasty, but the bread was a bit soggy. We had the lasagna and chicken fantasia. Portions were big, but both dishes were just okay in our opinion.

I was disappointed because the table who came in next to us reeked of smoke. I asked to move tables and the hostess said she’ll see what she can do and never came
Back. At least come back to tell us! This made the environment not great unfortunately. The food was good though!

We went to Pasta Amore for an anniversary dinner. The staff was amazing. We were greeted promptly and seated immediately since we had a reservation. The server asked us our names and remembered them throughout dinner. She gave us good food recommendations. We never felt rushed and had time to enjoy our meal. We had the appetizer combo platter, cioppino (Special for the day), and the tortellini. All were delicious. We also splurged and ordered dessert. The dessert is homemade including the toffee. I would highly recommend Pasta Amore.

Friends/acquaintances have suggested Pasta Amore for some time. So finally took the wife out to it on her birthday this year. The food was everything I’d been told, if not better, and I’m NOT a big Italian food guy (I mean, it’s mainly just pasta). What made this experience is that they make their own pasta & spreads and use the right amount of oil, spices, etc., perhaps like other local Italian stops, but it’s HOW they do it all. Superb!

What made this experience is that they make their own pasta & spreads and use the right amount of oil, spices, etc., perhaps like other local Italian stops, but it’s HOW they do it all. Superb! We also met one of the new owners, Matt, who also owns The Railcar & Timber with the same partner, though he stressed to us how he wants to keep Pasta Amore as he picked it up (if it ain’t broke mentality). We learned some about the restaurant’s original owners and history from our server and even the new hostess, but Matt really filled in all the spaces, with dates and interesting tidbits. Our server Frankie was superb and the atmosphere was white tablecloth and not loud. Though the dining room isn’t that big, outdoor tables are in use this time of the year, which spreads the crowd out a lot, leaving it a little more intimate. The music is your classic vintage crooners, big bands, musicals etc. They have a small lounge attached but separate from the dining room. Easily Omaha’s best Italiano. Loved it!

I hadn't been to Pasta Amore in quite some time, but it was all that I remembered. It was a very busy night, but the wait staff was very efficient and friendly. Our server had a server-in-training and both were just delightful! Our food, veal parm and saltimbocca were delicious. Desserts were very good, as well.

Love Pasta Amore !!! Been going there for years but then moved away. Went back this past weekend and brought my husband for the first time. He was in gnocchi & vodka sauce heaven. Pasta amore has always been consistently amazing. When we arrived the staff was tasting some new wines they just got in & they asked us if we wanted to try them. It turned into a mini wine tasting. The staff was very attentive and fun. Great experience but then again. In all these years it’s never been a bad experience.

This has now our favorite restaurant! We had dinner Saturday night
and so enjoyed everything! My husband had chicken with artichokes
and loved every bite. I had pasta combination - the chef even made me
happy by subbing egg plant Parmesan - it was sensational. We couldn’t
have had a nicer dinner. Going back very soon.

The service was wonderful! Lisa was very personable and fun to converse with. Our food was excellent and hot when it arrived. The only comment was the smokey taste of the bread. Not sure if it came off of the board the bread was served on but we did not care for that added flavor in the bread. Will definitely be back!

Christine our server was outstanding!! Table placement was crowded on top of another group. Moderately loud conversation from that reunion group of 8-10. Food was wonderful. Had the Tortellini with white cream sauce. A little flat and bland taste to the sauce was really enhanced by the blue cheese crumbles they brought me to try. That made the dish phenomenal. Highly recommended.
