Dante Recommended by Zagat

Dante Pizzeria - Zagat PizzaWe couldn’t have been more pleased when Dante Pizzeria was placed in the culinary spotlight of Zagat’s recent feature, “50 States, 50 Pizzas.” The staff writers at Zagat celebrated Pizza Week by touring the United States to find the best pizzas available and when they came to Nebraska, they chose Dante. Looking at the pizzas they reviewed, we were in great company and proud to represent our great city of Omaha and the state of Nebraska! Here’s what they had to say about us:\

Nebraska: Special Pies at Dante Pizzeria in Omaha

The wood-fired Neapolitan-style pies they’re churning out here are topped with creative local ingredients (they list their purveyors on their website) and visit-worthy, and they strictly adhere to the Neapolitan guidelines of the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana. We love all the varieties, but it’s special pies like the BLT – pork belly, tomato and basil – that never fail to surprise and delight.


We feel honored by their praise and recommendation of Dante which is why we wanted to share their words with you. We invite you to come in and try for yourself our many pizza varieties and we hope you find us praise-worthy as well!
