Fans of the Farm to Fork food movement will flock to Omaha for a slice of za from Dante. Known for wood-fired Neapolitan pizza bursting with local flavor, Dante’s is a true experience with a full menu of rustic Italian fare and perfectly paired wines. Located in west Omaha’s Shops Of Legacy district, Dante’s offers the perfect place to kick back and recharge.
Neapolitan style means the pizza is made with fresh ingredients – dough made with type 00 flour, a sauce made from San Marzano tomatoes and fresh buffalo or cow-milk mozzarella. Dante’s pizzas are baked at 800 degrees in the state’s only wood-fired oven. Fiery, bubbly pizza perfection takes exactly 90 seconds in this oven.
Branch out from your usual pizza picks and try one of Dante’s pasta plates. Try the Pappardelle Bolognese filled with locally sourced pork and beef topped with a flavorful ragù. Vegetarians will enjoy the Tagliatelle and Heirloom Tomatoes – with fried kale and garlic tossed in grana padano and olive oil. Whatever your order, ask the knowledgeable staff about the perfect wine pairings.
