Located at 2202 South 20th Street, is Piccolo’s Italian Steak House. A family friendly restaurant, Piccolo’s has been an Omaha favorite for lunch and dinner since 1934. Piccolo’s menu items are reasonably priced and the service is prompt. And, because of its proximity to the downtown area, it is a frequent choice of Omaha business workers. Piccolo’s dining hall is spacious and quiet, but the lighting is somewhat dim. Piccolo’s has a large party room and competitive rates for wedding banquets and special occasions. During our last visit, members of our party had the pork tenderloin, meatloaf, and roast beef sandwiches as well as the mostaccioli with meatballs. All the portions were generous and the food satisfying.
Piccolo’s serves dinner daily, and lunch Monday through Friday. You typically do not have to call ahead for reservations. And, there is plenty of parking street side and on the north side of the building. Give it a try when you are in South Omaha and Happy Motoring!
Located at 120 Regency Parkway inside Regency Court, next to Borsheim’s Jewelry, is Bonefish Grill. Serving fresh seafood from around world, prepared wood grilled, Bonefish is a delightful upscale dining experience. The first Bonefish Grill opened in St. Petersburg, Florida in 2000, and they now have locations in 28 states. In 2010 Bonefish was rated #1 by Zagat in its survey of full-service chains. When our family visited Bonefish, we had the Wild Alaskan Salmon with Mango Rum sauce. The service was excellent and the drink and wine selection strong. In addition to seafood, Bonefish has marvelous grilled steaks, chops and chicken entrees on their menu. Bonefish is open daily at 4:00 p.m., and reservations are strongly suggested because it is always busy. Happy Motoring!
