    Celebrated my wife's Executive MBA completion by dining with our adult son on a Thursday evening. We were kindly greeted and expeditiously seated at a comfortable indoor table. Our server Nichole was friendly, informative and efficient. The food was delivered within fifteen minutes and presentation was splendid. Our son's first-ever visit was highlighted by the delicious and well-prepared ribeye, and my wife & I enjoyed a fresh and delicious strawberry salad and Chicken Piccata. The chicken dish was good, but not excellent, as we prefer spaghetti as pasta choice. The restaurant is a great place to dine with family & friends as the ambiance is very comfortable and family-friendly. The establishment has developed a great reputation and when observing, one can tell people dine there to enjoy great food with family and close friends! Great job!

    The hostesses were rude, even though we had a reservation. My wine glass was served to me with lipstick on it. When I asked the server for a new glass, she said they all look like that and it’s just staining in the glass. We come here a lot and we’re very disappointed in yesterdays service. Flys we’re all over restaurant too. Gross!

    The food and service were great. The food is way overpriced. It's pasta. 3 shrimp, 3 scallops and 3 mussels is not a value at $27.00 when nothing comes with it.

    Broad menu. we ordered ravioli and duck as entrees with coconut shrimp to start. Both main courses were perfectly cooked with strong components. My risotto with the duck was smooth and rich, yet accessible to many taste boundaries. Coconut shrimp is always tasty and preparation was flawless. In general, Spezia is top notch in both menu breadth and meal execution. Chef and staff are some of the best in Omaha, if not #1. Wait staff seems to be transitory, but their lack of experience does not impact fantastic cuisine. I order their Bolognese for hike prep. OBTW, prices are very reasonable, especially for this time in our economy. I'd bulldoze the facility and open it up, but that is a small critique for a great restaurant. Again, the secret is simple: many choices and attention to detail on the cooking and product.

    Whenever we visit Omaha, we always plan a visit to Spezia. The food and service is excellent. Very friendly and competent staff. We saved our "Steak Night" for our evening at Spezia. The tenderloins were very tender, cooked to order, and the mashed potatoes and broccolini were delicious. We will continue to make it our plan to continue our visits there when we are in town.

    We had an excellent mother daughter lunch to celebrate my mom. Our server was great, food was delicious and the ambiance very nice. We ended up dropping/leaving our credit card and the server called us to let us know. They had our cell from our Open table reservation so an even better reason to use this app! We were so appreciative.
