My husband and I decided to try this restaurant after my sister raved about it. So on a Saturday night we strolled in. The hostess that treated us like we were being a bit of a bother rather than customers so that started our night off a bit bad. It not being a large menu, we decided on our meals... More

While the atmosphere is a bit tacky, the food is simply excellent. The Ravioli are homemade, which now days is unheard of!!! Prices are very reasonable. Will go back soon!

We started the night by calling ahead to see how long the wait would be. We were told "No Problem". We asked if we could get a table for two in 15 minutes and were told "No Problem". So we arrived in about 15 minutes and were told that we would need to wait. That was about 7:00 PM. We... More

Great neighborhood restaurant that is homey & clubbly. At lunch, found a table of lawyers having a great lunch. Had sausage pepper sandwich, meatball sandwich, eggplant parmasan, & order of cheese sticks! All first rate.

With a dearth of good Italian restaurants in our hometown of Lawrence (Kansas), we decided to try Malara's on a recent trip to Omaha after having read the rave reviews on Yelp. After our dinner, however, I am left wondering how this place ended up with 4 stars. The place is huge and the decor a bit tacky, looking as... More

Malara's has long been a neighborhood favorite for Italian food, and my recent meal there was most enjoyable. Their pastas are homemade, and the cheese ravioli with their basic red sauce was delicious, as was the homemade sausage that accompanied it. The meal comes with a plentiful lettuce salad with an excellent house dressing, and I liked that you could... More

Can't say enought about the comfortable, homey, family-type atmosphere and the absolutely delicious food. We were a party of six - with all but two of us being from out-of-town - yet our server treated us as if we were long lost friends returning home. Portion sizes are generous - half-sized dinners were plenty and even then we brought some... More

We had a big family dinner at Malara's last night and had a terrible server (older blond lady). We asked for our child's drink three times and, when she brought it out, she complained about the drink server to us (for what it was worth, the drink server was MUCH nicer than her). When she approached the table with the... More

The goal for the evening was to find an old, historic Italian restaurant. This fit the bill perfectly. I think I ate here many years ago but they've remodeled since then. Compared to other top-billed Italian restaurants in the area, Malara's prices are certainly the most reasonable.The wine list is decent, the salads are good, bread service made the kids... More
