pop-we Dinner Club Reviews Lo Sole Mio Ristorante Italiano

Lo Sole Mio entrance.
The great Dean Martin once said, “That’s amore!” In South Omaha, located at 3001 S. 32nd Ave., Conrad took us to a family-run Italian restaurant called Lo Sole Mio Ristorante Italiano. It sits in a neighborhood, they don’t have a parking lot and they are always busy. It was opened in 1992 by Don and Marie along with their children. They wanted a charming, "Old World" type of place that was a destination for people to come and people always do. Every year Omaha hosts the College World Series (NCAA baseball championship), the sports radio show I listen to always ask national sports writers what restaurant they are going to first? Lo Sole Mio is always first or second on their list while in town.

When you arrive at Lo Sole Mio, you can walk straight ahead into the bar area. The dining room is to the right of the entrance and is L shaped. There is seating in the basement, too. As you look around the room there are painting and statues for the Italian décor.

I ordered the Baked Lasagna for $17. The lasagna is layered with ground beef, ricotta cheese and a hearty marinara sauce. I like the dish for its flavors and how cheesy it was, I would recommend. One thing that is easily noticeable looking around the table is how big the portions are…go hungry! Conrad ordered, The Don, which is beef tips served with green peppers, onions, tomatoes, and mushrooms in a white wine sauce over a bed of pasta. He highly recommends, as it is his favorite dish on the menu. Another hit was Michelle’s Pasta Con Aragosta and Gameri, which is lobster, shrimp cooked in a cream sauce with asiago cheese and basil over pasta.

After compiling the surveys from the other foodies the pop-we Dinner Club gives Lo Sole Mio: 4.18 star average on a scale of 1-5.
