Omaha’s Foreign Food Trifecta
November 8, 2018
Accurately placed in “Little Italy,” Via Farina offers a unique dining experience that seems to drop you right into a modern Italian restaurant, five thousand miles away. Via Farina offers a relaxed environment with contemporary décor that is bright and cheerful, usually with happy little yellow flowers sitting on the tables.
The kitchen and its passionate chefs are on open display, and seating at the pizza bar offers some relaxed entertainment while you wait for your food. One of the highlights of Via Farina is its beautiful, orange-tiled, tear-drop shaped, wood fire pizza oven. The staff is friendly and accommodating to your every need.
The food itself is adheres to the saying, “the secret ingredient is love,” in that you can taste the passion of the makers in the food. The menu is broad with a lean towards those with a sophisticated palate; one pizza comes with a fresh egg cracked on top right before it enters the oven… however their simple pizzas are heavenly as well, with their sourdough crust that is homemade and cultured on site. The restaurant is vegetarian friendly and definitely somewhere I recommend for a romantic evening.
