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

With more than 10 years of experience as a professional writer, Megan holds a degree in Mass Media from her home state of Minnesota. After college, she chose to trade in her winter boots for slippahs and moved to the beautiful island of Oahu, where she has been living for more than five years. She lives on the west side but is constantly taking mini-road trips across the island and visits the neighboring islands whenever she can getaway. She loves hiking, snorkeling, locally-grown coffee, and finding the best acai bowl on Oahu.
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.
Orsi’s Italian Bakery & Pizzeria is located at 621 Pacific St., Omaha, NE 68108, and is open Tuesday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, visit their website or follow them on Facebook.
