A staple in Omaha since 1919, Orsi’s has spoiled locals with delicious baked goods and Italian cuisine for almost a century. They’re best known and loved for their handcrafted pizzas. Baked on fresh bread and authentic cheeses, the pizza pies are made to order and about as close to Italian pizza as you can get this side of the Atlantic. With home-made dough and ingredients prepared fresh every morning, you’ll taste the difference at Orsi’s.
