This is a neat old building with a cool spaghetti restaurant. Affordable and yummy. All you can eat pasta? What's not to like about that! Good salad bar. Cold beer. Capable, friendly service. Try the beer cheese sauce!

We heard wonderful things about this restaurant from visitors to locals so we tried it - we wish we hadn't. The food was okay, but nothing better then you would have at home. The waitress was terrible, which just made the experience even worse. We ordered an appetizer and the dinners came with the salad bar. Approximately 30 minutes after... More

Pros: decent food; decent prices; salad bar included with most entrees; garlic toast included with most entrees; we could sit outside after having been in the car for hours. Cons: very bland food; salad bar was a mess; garlic toast was cold; sitting outside meant crappy... More

Love to have lunch or dinner here - especially on a nice day, so I can sit out on the covered patio and watch the people in the Old Market area. From watching the cars jockey for parking spaces on the street, people trying to walk in high heels on the brick streets, their 'get-ups', etc., it can be quite... More

White clam sauce lacked any significant flavor and was a little watery. Garlic bread was tasty. Wait staff was slow and not very attentive even though it was not busy as it was a 1:30 late lunch.

I always enjoy their salad bar and the all you can eat spaghetti with multiple sauce choices. The original sauce is up there with the best of them and the pomodoro and basil cream are very good. My friends like the "hot and naked" too. Their cheeseburger is also very good.

Very cool place. The whole old market area is beautiful with so much character. The outdoor seating at spaghetti works was very nice.

Two salad bars so the line does not get too long. Good salad bar overall. The BEST lasagna! Friendly staff. Nice atmosphere for family dinner or date. Good place to take out of town guests.

If you're looking for great Italian in Omaha this isn't it. Salad bar was just ok. Personal pizzas looked and tasted like a stouffers frozen French bread pizza
