An Omaha tradition since 1934.


Great food and great memories.

Anthony Piccolo’s serves up the best Italian Steakhouse food in Omaha.

With a mobile venue food truck, event space located just south of downtown, and off-site catering services, we’re continuing our family tradition of serving great food to a new generation of guests.

Scott Sheehan grew up at the red-checkered tables of Piccolo Pete’s, his grandfather’s restaurant that bore the honor of being one of the oldest family restaurants in Omaha and a Warren Buffett favorite. “Grandpa’s food was the best I ever had. The lifelong memories I have of him and the restaurant are ones I’ll always treasure.” Piccolo’s first opened in 1934 as Piccolo Pete’s, and various family members operated the restaurant throughout the years until it closed in 2015.

Scott launched Anthony Piccolo’s Mobile Venue in 2014, and has brought his own flair and style to the new operation and menu. At Anthony Piccolo’s, you’ll find familiar Italian Steakhouse classics and fun new favorites, and plenty of great memories to be made.
