Plates are getting smaller not sure why?

Have been coming here for years. But the size of the salad plates and pasta plates has become almost comical. Trying to get salad on the small oval saucers is like a balancing act. If you want more than a cup of salad it will take two plates. The pasta came on small diner plate. They used to come... read more

Used to be a favorite restaurant in Old Market Omaha NE. Always looked forward to dining there when in town. The quality just wasn't there this time. The recipes have changed and the old favorites were unrecognizable. Disappointing.

This place feels like a chain - I don't know if it is or it isn't, but I will say this - as with most of the restaurants in Omaha, the service is excellent and the food is good. Our meal came with a salad bar and delicious bread. If it didn't have the feel of a chain, I would... More

I love this restaurant! I always leave there stuffed!! They start you with a salad then the pasta. If you love flavor, this is the place for you. Even their plain spaghetti is delicious!! I dont visit as much as I would like but anytime I'm in the Old Market, I make a bee line to Spaghetti Works.

Hadn't eaten here for a while, but have never been disappointed in it. Plenty of food, well prepared and delicious. Plus the atmosphere is special.

I had not been to Spaghetti Works for years but I was in town for a concert with a friend who had never been there. It was even better than I remember. Beef Ravioli was awesome but the appetizer spinach and artichoke dip was the best I have ever had!!

Stopped in during the BH annual meeting. Had the small sausage pizza, maybe 6 on a 1-10 scale, and wife had a pasta dish that she said was about an 8 or 9. Great service, very good prices and a reasonably funky setting.

We happened to be in Omaha and the kiddo had her mouth set for Mac n' cheese. We read in other reviews that this place had mac n' cheese on the kids menu. However, they do not. We opted for the build-your-own pastas and got the sauces on the side. The kitchen had a little bit of trouble getting our... More

Food was very good. There was a balloon artist walking around the night we were there that the kids loved!
