Homemade pastas, sauces and salad dressings. What more could one ask for? This place never fails to please, and it's a place to take out-of-towners to really impress them with the fare this great family-operated restaurant serves.

This is a genuine local family owned Italian Restaurant. In my opinion, the best in Omaha.While there are fancier and way more expensive ones. This one's the best I know of in town.

Have been coming here since they opened when they only had about six tables. Always ordered the lasagna and the ravioli. Their pasta and ravioli is homemade and taste great. Portions are huge and we always get a second meal out of them.

Recommended as a place locals go. If you want some good old fashioned carb-heavy pasta, this place is for you. Home made sauce. Friendly staff. Good choice for a belly-filling meal. Cheese sticks are also home made and huge. Calamari was probably out of the...More

My wife and I went to Malara's for the first time and loved it. The sauce is homemade and meatballs large and have lots of flavor. Prices reasonable and great family owned authentic restaurant that makes you feel good to be there.
