Get the 20 oz Tbone for just $24.95 and it comes with everylike, soup, salad, hashbrowns, bread and mostacolli. Everything taste great. My steak was done to perfection with good seasonings. I have had other menu items for lunch and they were all pretty good. For dinner, just get the tbone. You can't go wrong.

Where to start? Reservations for 9:15 friday night could not be filled until 9:45pm. So sorry, we forgot to mention when taking your res that we had a large group booked that would back things up. So you get to wait and so sorry again. Thanks a lot.

Steaks were big but thin and not as tasty as Gorat's. No char grill just gray because they were just heated up. Salad was cold and plain as reported by others but flavourless and Wonder bread in the basket (unbelievable). Service was average and she was chewing gum and shirt untucked. What crap!

Pass on Piccolo Pete's and go to Gorat's and see Warren.

Steak was good, veal parmesan just so-so. Salad was just lettuce - good and cold but absolutely nothing in it like tomatoes or other additions although the dressing was good. Couldn't believe they served plain old sliced bread - would have expected Italian bread or something more special. Music in the dining room clashed with different music coming from the bar.

Service was fine and the dining room reminded me of a Supper Club in the Italian section of town in upstate NY 50 years ago.

As usual, the food was great at Piccolo's a long time Omaha steakhouse with reasonable steaks. Again, some of these waitresses that have been here along time feel that they can be harsh to their tables without reason. We had been seated maybe 2 minutes when she came over and asked if we were ready to order. I said no, waited 10 minutes and finally got up to go to the bathroom. She stopped me and said that she would wait longer.... I said we really would like to order drinks before dinner if "she wouldn't mind"!
Why in the world would you work in food service if you can't be pleasant - only the tip takes a beating at that point!!

Generally caters to an older crowd, but for good priced steaks in a mid price range this is one of our go-to places.
