This is where we go for special dinners, (anniversary, birthday, etc). Great food, personalized service, along with a quiet atmosphere make this a place to celebrate time together. Cocktails were made perfectly. Appetizer came quickly and hot. Dinner was made quite appealing and tasted better than expected.

Very friendly and good service. If you walk away from here hungry then you eat too much. Wonderful steaks and Italian food. The plates are very full and very good.

Don't be alarmed when you drive up and can't find any parking! The parking here really isn't sufficient for the amount of seating inside. Find a place to park a little farther away and walk back. Even though the parking lot was jammed full of cars when we arrived, we were seated with no wait. The food is outstanding, the... More

Special is one of Omaha's most popular Italian Steakhouse's. The big difference here is that Spezia dedicates a lot of time and attention to the Italian and other non-beef items, and it shows. The menu is broad, with many options to choose from. The interior is handsome, and outdoor dining is offered in favorable weather. Prices are fair for the... More

I simply am impressed with Spezia, the last few times we've eaten here. We've been lucky to have Alison as our server twice, including last night's meal. She is so sweet, knowledgable and a gem as servers go. Our meal last night was a romantic meal, for my husband and I. The decor is elegant yet cozy. The lighting just... More

I arrived late for this luncheon as traffic was crazy. After I was seated with my group, the server came by and asked if I would like to order. I ordered the chicken risotto, and it was superb. The fare was tasty, large enough for lunch, and full of flavor.

They have great salads and salmon dishes. Service is always great and they have a nice happy hour. Their lounge is small as well as their parking lot, but the food is delicious and worth it. Great place for business lunches, dinners, and drinks.

We returned for lunch today to see if they were still as good as our last review a year ago. They are! I had a Mediterranean Chicken Salad and my companion ordered the very special, Peach Chicken. Oh my goodness. Neither can easily be described except as, perfection! As always, the wait staff was knowledgeable, friendly and very appropriate. Enjoy!
