Another of Omaha’s oldest restaurants, Piccolo Pete’s, has been owned by the Piccolo family since 1933. A little tavern turned grocery store during Prohibition, Piccolo Pete’s at one point was also a dance hall. The original crystal ball from that era still hangs in the dining room, and owner Donna Piccolo says that when music plays here, “it just seems so right.” Among the interesting knickknacks on display in the lounge is the cake-top from Donna’s parents’ wedding. They lived above the restaurant for more than 60 years. You’ll also see pictures of Omaha’s best-known resident, Warren Buffett, dining here with his friend Bill Gates. By the way, Warren and Bill—they love the root beer floats here.
