Nebraska’s Very First Italian Restaurant Has Literally Been Around Forever

From decades-old eateries to hip new spots, Nebraska is home to countless incredible restaurants. And while there are many restaurants you should have on your Nebraska dining bucket list, none will take you on a journey back in time quite like the oldest Italian restaurant in the state. Tucked away in Omaha near the Old Market in the area known as Little Italy, this Italian restaurant has been a Nebraska favorite since it opened a century ago.
