This is my favorite restaurant in Omaha, and with good reason.
First, the food and service has always been good when I've gone. Actually, I should say the service is always excellent, not just "good". I am always seated promptly and the wait staff checks on you just the right amount - enough that you get refills without asking and can ask for something you need without waiting forever, but not so much that you are constantly interrupted or annoyed by it. Most of the times I have been there, the owner has even come around to each table and asked how the service is.
The food is always great, and is priced fairly. You can expect to spend $10-15 for most entrees, though there are some that can be more expensive than that. They also have fairly priced appetizers, desserts and beverages. I LOVE that they will cook any menu item to order, and they have gladly accomodated the dietary constraints of my dining companions on more than one occasion. On one occasion, the chef even came out to clarify the order and then followed up after the first few bites to make sure everything was okay.
My favorite things to eat there are the gnocchi bites for an appetizer and the chicken piccata for an entree. Their tiramisu and sweet potato fries are great, too!
They have a wonderful outdoor patio for dining. Also, they have nicely stocked bar and a shuffleboard table which is fun. The decor is a fun - very contemporary and a bit eclectic.
I love supporting locally-owned and family-owned businesses and this fits the bill. The owner's sister waits tables there and she has talked about how many of the recipes come from their Italian ancestors. While lot of the menu items are Italian, you can also find a nice selection of salads, burgers, and sandwiches here.
This is definitely a great place for couples, hanging out for drinks, dining with friends, and even business transactions. While there isn't a kids menu that I noticed, I think well-behaved children would not be out of place. The dress is definitely casual.
