It's been a few months since we visited but the service and food were excellent. It's not an inexpensive place to eat but we thought the value was good. Will definitely return.

We have been going to Spezia for years. The cuisine is contemporary Italian with a few old standards. Excellent steaks, seafood and pasta. The room is comfortable and not too noisy Service is always friendly and attentive. The happy hour specials include great deals on wine by the glass and half-price flatbread pizzas.

We were looking for a nice meal on mothers day and Spezia delivered. We were traveling so I went to trip advisor for ideas. Thank you fellow raters.

Had a great steak and shrimp dinner Sunday night. If you think it's all Italian you need to try this place for a regular steak.

Ate there on a Friday night. It was crowded and lively. Service was very good. Food was good but not knock your socks off. The wine menu is reasonable as are the food prices. Interestingly, there were no veal dishes, lasagna, or many other menu items you would expect at an Italian restaurant. I ate chicken with gnocchi. Good but... More

Overall our favorite restaurant in Omaha. Great food and service. Northern Italian but a varied menu. Our favorite is the Hunter's Duckling: large 1/2 duck, crispy skin, delicious meat, served with great mushroom risotto. But everything is very good: appetizers (calamari, tuna, etc) and mains (wood plank grilled fish, lamb sirloin, steak, etc.) Consistently excellent.
