Went with my group of friends for prom. Everyone was content with their meals and it was a suitable place for the occasion, I love the fact that you can make a reservation a few days in advance as well. The food was kinda pricey, but the quantity and quality was totally worth it!

As always, the food and wine at Spezia were excellent. And the service seems to always be top-notch, but our server this time (Jordan) was a cut above. He made our dining experience extra special. He did a great job!

So loud I felt like we were at a college bar but spending a lot more on good food. It was a joke and will never go back. I also found it odd that the reservation asked for special occasion and I input wedding anniversary and it was never mentioned. And noise level was not energetic...it was annoying as f***.

We love this restaurant! Steaks melt in your mouth.
Recently tried the Walleye, though and must admit a little disappointed, very bland.
Service is always excellent and friendly, we will be back and recommend.

Went here for husbands birthday. Service was great as we had kids with us and originally sat in a very quiet area and we asked to be moved due to a baby we have and we felt it wasn’t the right area for such noise for this type of area if he was to be loud and they were very accommodating in getting us moved to a better area!

I was completely impressed with Spezia. The facility is fairly private and romantic, the server was friendly, attentive and receptive.
The food very tasty, well plated and best of all it was hot.
I felt that the pricing was also very attractive. Spezia is a good value for all they do.
We were pleasantly satisfied and will put Spezia on the short list of Friday dinner spots.

From the moment we arrived, we received excellent service. We did make a reservation. We were seated immediately at one of the best tables in the restaurant. The wait staff was attentive but not overbearing. The food was fabulous. We will be back when visiting Omaha in the future. One word of advice, this is a very popular restaurant, so we would highly recommend making reservations (through Open Table, of course :) ).

A bit disappointed on this evening at Spezia. I ordered the steak and mushroom ravioli.
When it arrived the ravioli was noticeably browned, like it had been sitting under hot lights for a long time. The plate was extremely hot. The steak was delicious, the ravioli, not so much!

Loved the Chicken Parmesan, but one person in our group ordered Duck, they thought it tasted more like chicken than duck.

My husband and I received a gift card for Spezia, so that is what brought us in. We were amazed with how yummy the food was, and we were so glad the portions were hearty! (We love leftovers!) The ambiance was relaxing, and the happy hour deals are killer! We look forward to going back again.

Meals were delicious. We had a pasta dish and salmon dish. They were both fantastic and we each had the salad special which was light yummy. We brought out own bottle of wine which was aged and they had issues with the cork. Ended up putting it in a decanter and waved the corking fee. Our server Heather was friendly and helpful on food selections. We will be back soon.

Great food as always. The bread was warm out of the oven. The specials were all interesting and well prepared. I am not an 'adventurous' eater, but tried the Red Snapper served with BLACK linguini. The server explained the black color came from squid ink, but that it was not 'squidy' tasting and she was correct. The lemon torte dessert was perfect and we didn't have to ask the waitress to bring a fork for each person.

We enjoyed both some of the happy hour offerings and some of the new seasonal menu dishes. Spezia's does it up right. Everything was good. So happy when the strawberry salad is in season! All the salmon dishes are great. My husband loves the eggplant parmigiana. Can't wait to go back.

Spezia is a wonderful little joint. I went to meet business acquaintances from one of my customers. The atmosphere was cozy and quiet which really allowed us to learn about each other. The salads and entree's were very good and all parties were very satisfied with their food. Would absolutely go again for business or personal dining!
