I ordered fettucini alfredo and it came looking like skim milk. I can do better than that out of a jar! Calling it mediocre food is being generous

I went to Spezia for lunch with a friend. I loved the warm ambiance of the restaurant. The hostess greeted us with a friendly smile. Though we were early for our reservation, we were seated right away. Our waiter was attentive. He kept my water filled and took our orders in a timely manner. We did have to wait for our check, though.

I ordered the Tuscan burger with the pepper parmesan fries. The burger was brought to me medium rare, as ordered, but it was burnt and crusty on the outside (the burgers are wood fired but this seemed excessive). The mushroom sauce and the grilled Tuscan bread it came with were good. The fries were excellent. My friend, who likes spicey, ordered the seafood fra diavolo. She said hers was good, not great, but good.

Overall, I got the feeling that this was not typical of a meal for Spezia. When in Omaha again, I would like to come back for dinner.

Love! Love! Love! As a self proclaimed foodie, I have never not been dazzled at spezia. The flavors are rich and complex clearly using fresh ingredients. For about 20% more than the olive garden you can have the best Italian food I've had since Rome.
