Pizza Place
“Great patio, cocktails, homemade pasta, wood fire pizzas! YOu ten to need a reservation on weekends. Definitely walking distance. About: Nestled at the entrance of Omaha's Little Italy, we make carefully crafted pasta & pizza. Paul Kulik, who is a James Beard-nominated chef and owner of Le Bouillon, has collaborated with the Maven Social Group. Per Kulik's style, our food is selectively sourced, our pasta is made in-house, and our pizza is baked inside our custom wood-fired oven. Whether it's the thoughtfully selected wine, cocktail & beer list, our wonderful Rocket R58 espresso machine, or the 3-day process it takes to create our pizza dough, we put the extra work & thought into our process, not because we're fancy, but because it just simply tastes better. We make serious food with a light heart.”
