Nicola’s Italian Wine & Fare

Located in 521 S 13th St, Omaha, NE 68102.

Phone: +1 402-345-8466

Quiet little Italian place right downtown. If you get there early, you’ll probably be fine, but they have very limited seating, so a reservation is recommended. The food is awesome and service excellent. Wine choices are great and not overpriced. The cannoli is a great way to end the night.

Avoli Osteria

Located in 5013 Underwood Ave, Omaha, NE 68132.

Phone: +1 402-933-7400

Avoli is a Northern Italian restaurant, located in the historic Omaha neighborhood of Dundee. They hope a dining experience at Avoli will remind you of a trip to Italy or help you imagine what eating in Italy would be like. When they began dreaming and planning a new restaurant, they wanted to recreate an authentic Italian experience. They wanted to give diners an opportunity to possibly try something they may not have had before. They felt Omaha needed an Italian restaurant with a modern twist. Avoli’s wine list contains only wines you find in the Northern regions of Italy, the food consists of many local ingredients and what they can’t find locally, they import from Italy.

”Dario and I have lived in different places, Dario is from Sarajevo, Bosnia and I grew up in Kearney, Nebraska. We met in Munich, Germany where we were married. We moved to New York city where we lived for many years until September 11, 2001. We have been in Omaha ever since. We opened our first restaurant, Dario’s Brasserie, in 2006. Dario is a French classically trained chef, he attended the French Culinary Institute in New York.”

They are proud to call Omaha their home and so happy they chose to start their lives over in this community. The city of Omaha is amazing, it’s been extremely supportive and welcoming, they look forward to being here for years to come. They hope you love Avoli as much as they do.

The name Avoli comes from combining their daughters names, Ava & Olivia.

Orsi’s Italian Bakery & Pizzeria

Located in 621 Pacific St, Omaha, NE 68108

Phone:+1 402-345-3438

Founded in 1919 by World War I veteran Alfonso Orsi, Orsi’s Bakery & Pizzeria is one of the last remaining icons of Omaha’s Little Italy. For decades, their Italian twist bread and hearty Sicilian style pizza has been a staple of Omaha. During the early years, Alfonso and his family worked in the bakery, with the ovens as their sole source of heat.

As the restaurant grew, it became a vivid part of the neighborhood known as Little Italy. In 1949, Alfonso retired and his son Claudio Orsi took over the bakery and ran it until 1987, when his son Robert “Bob” Orsi took ownership.

Ten years later, in 1997, a devastating fire gutted the bakery and destroyed the livelihood of the family. However, the supportive community rallied around the family, helping to clean up the rubble and raise funds so that, several months later, the bakery was rebuilt in the same location.

In 2006, Bob’s son, Bob Orsi Jr., and Jim Hall, along with their wives, bought the bakery from Bob and continued the business of providing fresh Italian bread and pizza pies in Omaha, NE. They made certain improvements to it, including remodeling the interior to feature Italian Deli and Imported Goods areas to sell fine Italian products that are hard to find in the city these days.

In 2010, Bob Orsi Jr. sold his share of the bakery and Jim Hall and his wife, Kathy, became the sole owners, continuing the 92-year-old tradition that has become a lasting icon of the Omaha area.

Orsi’s Bakery & Pizzeria has been delighting people for almost a century and continues to be popular with a new generation that enjoys the taste of history that Orsi’s Bakery provides with its genuine pizza, baked goods and goudarooni in Omaha, NE.
