    The cocktails, wine and food were excellent … it is a great atmosphere and our server was lovely. I wish I remembered her name! She was very attentive and helpful with menu and wine choices. I had the squash risotto that was very good. The Acadian chicken was perfect. The tiramisu was excellent as well. Highly recommend!

    Great service. Loud group at the bar was the only downside. Food was solid and good value. Some steaks were a little overpriced but most was fair/value. Parking space was very poor but not much can be done

    Great experience. The food was outstanding and the service attentive, accommodating and friendly. We were celebrating my wife’s birthday. The waiter took pictures for us and brought her a dessert with a candle. We will go again and it won’t have to be a special occasion.

    Spezia is one of my favorite restaurants, but last night the service felt off, as if we were not at all of importance and there was a large crowd that was. I felt like we were an afterthought or forgotten at times. Hoping it was just an off night and that was it.

    Such a nice evening! The Salmon Spezia was delicious and so was the beet and goat cheese salad. The serve ice was great too. To top it off the lemon cake for dessert was light and flavorful. We will be back. The booths made it easy to talk to friends and have a little privacy away from the usual loud restaurants around town. Great job, Spezia!

    This was one of the best meals we’ve had in a long time, and Omaha has a lot of great restaurants. The free range chicken and the special sausage pappardelle pasta were both amazing. And the banana fosters cheesecake was the perfect ending. Great service, too.

    We love Spezia and it has always been our go to for anniversary and birthday dinners. Last night though the food failed to impress. It’s not that the food was bad, it just wasn’t nearly as good as we have come to expect, especially for the price. The crab dip appetizer looked fantastic when it came out, but once we started eating it, it just tasted like something you would get at a grocery store and warm up. The squash in the squash risotto was undercooked, whether that was on purpose or not I don’t know, but it made for a difficult time enjoying the dish, the rest of the risotto was just ok. The other main course dish we had was the gnocchi, it was very tasty and had an air of what we used to feel when eating at Spezia. I want to make it absolutely clear, the food was not bad, it just wasn’t as good as we have come to expect for the name Spezia and the price you pay. The service was excellent, our waiter was attentive and polite, he was enjoyable and seemed to be very busy but still was able to make it around and check on us enough. We will definitely be going to Spezia again.

    Spezias is my favorite restaurant in Omaha. I don’t do lunch there often, as it is a business lunch kind of place and some of the tables can be loud. Our experience was still great including the staff, good, timely and ambience. The prices are right on for what you get, it’s all great! Thank you

    I had made a reservation and the uber right picked us up at 5pm so we would have time to sit at the bar before being sat to eat. When there was an accident on the road and the 5pm uber took 52 min for a 14-minute drive. I called 5:30ish (before the reservation to let them know we would be showing up late, and they said it was fine. I then wanted to call again once we were still in the traffic 5 pm-5:51 pm and I called them after saying we were still in the traffic....still. They said it was fine and we got there and they mentioned how "we were a few minutes past our reservation... yes I was, but I was very communicative and called twice once before the time during our ride and another time still during our ride.

    Service was perfect, attentive without being intrusive. The food is amazing, and if you don't get the tiramisu you're crazy. It's fantastic! The price was completely reasonable for the quality you receive. I was actually surprised at how low the bill was for a dinner for two with appetizers and desert. We will be going back.
