We always stop here on our way to and from Denver on our way from Indiana. Love the quality food and great service. Enjoyed the filet with mushroom ravioli. We will be back next time we are passing through!

Having driven in on a lengthy road trip, we were unaware that reservations are a good idea. Two young hostesses lacking mature communication skills said the only option was to sit in the "party room". We almost left, but decided to check it out. It...lacked the intimate atmosphere and pleasant mood lighting of the main dining area, but wasn't all that bad. Not sure why they don't make slight adjustments to the lighting and furniture placement to make this room as pleasant as the main restaurant. Our server was young but very mature, articulate and professional. Our large salads were fresh and delicious, and the salmon spectacular. Happy hour beer specials were good. It was odd to be asked if we wanted a glass for the beer. Serving it in a can wouldn't exactly class up the place.... why not just bring it in a glass. Pre-dinner bread with olive oil and balsamic was very good.More

This so-called Italian restaurant could not produce an edible plate of cheese ravioli. The pasta was mushy, like it had been frozen, the filling was flavorless, tomato sauce tasted straight from a can, and the whole mess was weirdly smothered in melted cheese--not cheese sauce,...just ...cheese. Major whiff on the most basic stuff. So disappointing. Seriously, go to Biaggi's instead.More

I do want to say first off that I recommend you make a reservation. I was glad to arrive without a reservation and be able to sit at the bar. While very busy, things were not frenetic even as the ones behind the bar were...busy mixing drinks and working very well together. I had a cocktail and a lovely meal. I can see why they were so busy on a Friday night. Go!More

This was our 2nd visit to Spezia and it did not disappoint. We did not have reservation in July nor in September but I am told as winter sets in you should have a reservation. The service is outstanding, understanding of the menu amazing, staff...very professional, hat goes off to the person who taught the service team they are polite! We have tried the spicy fried calamari with the roasted red and banana peppers very good (fried but it's still a light feel). The mediterranean chicken salad is enough for 2 and that chicken is very savory, the seafood diavolo so many different taste buds came alive (a must). Being from Texas we always like to have some form of meat at dinner and the Garlic herb tenderloin was amazing. We tried the different flatbreads but our favorite was the Italian sausage roasted one. Plan to return in November and we will stop here again for sureMore

Everything was incredible. The steak was cooked perfectly, and the pasta was great. We were able to make substitutes for our meal since I don't like onions, which was just icing on the cake. Our waiter, Ben, made the whole experience so much better, too....He was very personable and fun to talk to. Overall, it was one of the best eating experiences we had on this trip, and we would definitely recommend it to anyone.More

Went in to this restaurant for dinner, partly based on recommendation from and partly on raving recommendations online. Service was very good and I also enjoyed the choice of food I made. I will definitely go back anytime I am back in town.

We have been to this restaurant many times since it started up where La Scala 72 used to be. Right from the start it has been our favorite restaurant in Omaha. While they completely refurbished the site creating a warm atmosphere, they also added outstanding...service and food. As soon as we sat down our server introduced himself and handed us fresh warm bread rolls and iced water (which was obviously not the cruddy tasting tap water of Omaha). The meal that followed was outstanding and great value for money. I had the duck which was crispy but succulent and actually an improvement on the last time I chose it. We have toured Italy, where we enjoyed numerous great restaurants, but frankly did not find a restaurant we enjoyed as much as Spezia.More

Every aspect of our meal was outstanding. I had a chicken asparagus pasta dish in cream sauce. My husband had chicken piccata. The Riesling was superb, coffee was delicious and the spumoni was over the top great with a chocolate sauce drizzle. Service and ambiance...was wonderful. Best meal we’ve had in a very long time.More

After reading the reviews of Spezia, we really looked forward to dinner after a long drive from Chicago. While I wasn't expecting a dinner like those I've had in Italy, I was expecting something like the North End of Boston. It didn't quite match that...either, but this is still a very good restaurant. We had the chicken parm. It was deep fried and resembled a fast food dinner. That being said, the calamari was delicious and the wine we ordered was featured, Old Soul Red. The wine was great and not marked up that much. The service was outstanding and I will go back - just not for chicken parm.More

No dress code. Lots of people wear jeans and nice shirts. My wife and I dressed up when we went but it was a good mix of dress up/dress down.
