I've lived in Omaha for almost a year, and this is one of the first restaurants I ate at, and it was love at first sight. It might throw you for a loop when you pull up because it's in a residential neighborhood and a little bit difficult to find, but I think that adds to its charm. The staff is incredibly helpful - I'm a picky eater, and they always graciously take care of my special requests. The salad tends to be a little overdressed, so make sure to request dressing on the side, or easy on the dressing. I reccommend the chicken parm or the brascioli - a huge meatball with bacon in the middle. Heaven! That said, there is nothing on the menu I would not reccomend - I've enjoyed everything I've ever ordered there. I've been on multiple first dates there (it's my go-to date restaurant!), and anytime I have a friend coming to visit, this is the first place I take them.
