Nick and his team create authentic Neapolitan pizza and fresh handmade pasta, made with locally sourced produce and artisinal salumi. Chef/Owner Nick Strawhecker brings his years of experience abroad and around the country back to Omaha to offer a truly Italian dining experience. Nick oversees the menu which also features fresh pasta, house made mozzarella, and other seasonal Italian dishes.
Just as Pizzerias in Naples, Dante features a specially crafted Italian designed Mugnaini brick oven and a marble counter where the crust is prepared, the same way they were a century ago. The unique flavor of these wood-fired brick-oven pizzas is unmatched.
Dante adheres to the strict VERA member guidelines for ingredients, dough and cooking. This elite organization maintains that pizza dough must be made with only flour, brewer's yeast, salt and water. The pizza is then cooked in a VERA certified wood-burning oven with temperatures reaching 800 degrees.
Dante has experienced and passionate staff, all of whom are well versed in Italian cuisine and our ENTIRELY Italian wine list!.
