    Treated three friends to Spezia after a classical concert. We enjoyed a range of food from a large menu. All was quite tasty. Taylor provided excellent service in a very busy time. Another plus: Spezia is one of the few top restaurants open on Sunday evening.

    Nice dinner spot with more room inside than we expected. Noticed they had a nice outdoor dining patio as well. Cheese Ravioli and Grilled Shrimp and Scallops were great. Husband had pasta with chicken and a little spicy cream sauce. Pasta and sauce were good, chicken was a little chewy. Fast and friendly service.

    The cheese ravioli was excellent as usual however they have changed their molten cocoa cake recipe. This used to be one of the best desserts in the city and now the cake is tasteless and spongy. The ice cream, chocolate sauce and Heath crumbles served with the cake are still very good, however the cake is now a huge disappointment. Why change something that is so delicious into something that is now tasteless?

    It was Father's Day and I expected a crowd but we were seated in the quiet room with the booths off to the right when you enter. We met some friends from Minnesota and all enjoyed excellent meals! Our waitress was very attentive and brought us everything we asked for. Love the warm dinner rolls. I had the risotto with seafood, a favorite and husband had beef burgundy. The other couple enjoyed ravioli and a dish of the specials menu. All of us enjoyed our meal, perfectly prepared and served. We will be back for sure!

    Even though they were booked solid and people kept coming in, the manager at the front helped the new hostess keep on top of everything, Great job! The food was fabulous and presented very well. Our server did a great job. My favorite place to eat in Omaha is Spezias.

    Had a VIP client with me and everything was perfect. Food, service and everything else were top notch as always. The client was impressed. The thing I love about Spezia the most is that they excel every time without fail. It’s easy to achieve excellence once - Spezia’s ability to do it every time is what sets them apart!

    Dinner Sunday evening for four. Spezia was superb in all areas. The drinks were generous, the rolls are great, and the entrees were all most tasty, especially for the two of us that ordered a small tenderloin. Spezi's menu is very large with reasonable prices for this area of the Midwest Our server, Sara, is one of the very best we have encountered in many years of dining in Omaha. She took the orders without having to make notes and delivered each thing exactly as ordered. She is friendly, professional, and efficient. We have reservations to return in two weeks to host a party of five and have asked for Sara to serve us.

    Wonder restaurant, the angel hair with cream sauce dishes especially delicious! Martinis a little light, but hand stuffed blue cheese olives well worth it. Barossa Syrah, great, banana foster cheese cake, delicious as well and very creative, Our waitress was lovely and fun, a wonder experience overall. Ask for a booth if you don’t sit outside.

    We always visit Spezia when in Omaha. It is one of my son's favorite restaurants. Our server Austen was attentive without being intrusive. Our water glasses were always filled when needed. Austen carefully prepared the olive oil and balsamic vinegar for the rolls, adding just the right amount of parmesan cheese. Our appetizer was finished before the entree arrived. Pacing was perfect. The walleye was moist and delicately seasoned. It melted in my mouth. Austen saw to every need. Spezia did not disappoint. We will definitely be back.

    We had a super meal there. We mostly had either steak or the g n o c c i with chicken. Excellent everything! Strawberry salad is always awesome. We were sad to see the Apple galette desert go away and we would have liked to have seen more chocolate sauce with the sundaes but otherwise everything was fabulous. Great service! My only reason for rating Ambience down one point was because we sat on the east side of the restaurant which is a little bar like. We love Spezia!

    Just to be clear the food and service was excellent, but THEIR web site was outdated. The prices on their web site did not match the actual prices on their menu, in particular the Happy Hour, and the wine list was not accurate. Prices were considerably higher, and fewer choices. Overall, very good.

    My daughtrr’in’-law’s birthday was our occasion. We were lucky to get a spot on this busy weekend. Yes, it was the patio but shaded and the breeze made it not too hot. The meals came out in a timely fashion and were very tasty. My son had a filet that was perfectly done and a reasonable. “Market” price. My shrimp and scallops were excellent. Server was toddler friendly! Thanks for the birthday treat!

    Ordered the Hunters Ribeye It was over cooked and had terrible grill crust on it. Not tender at all was more like a Strip not a ribeye. Won’t order it again. The waitress was pleasant but we literally had to go looking for her to ask about our bill. We were charged for Top shelf booze when we didn’t request it. Then had to look for her again to give her our bill. Overall we had a Great time
