About Avoli Osteria

About Avoli Osteria

Avoli Osteria was opened by Dario & Amy Schicke in July 2013.

Avoli is a Northern Italian restaurant, located in the historic Omaha neighborhood of Dundee. We hope a dining experience at Avoli will remind you of a trip to Italy or help you imagine what eating in Italy would be like. When we began dreaming and planning a new restaurant, we wanted to recreate an authentic Italian experience. We wanted to give diners an opportunity to possibly try something they may not have had before. We felt Omaha needed an Italian restaurant with a modern twist. Avoli’s wine list contains only wines you find in the Northern regions of Italy, the food consists of many local ingredients and what we can’t find locally, we import from Italy.

Dario and I have lived in different places, Dario is from Sarajevo, Bosnia and I grew up in Kearney, Nebraska. We met in Munich, Germany where we were married. We moved to New York city where we lived for many years until September 11, 2001. We have been in Omaha ever since. We opened our first restaurant, Dario’s Brasserie, in 2006. Dario is a French classically trained chef, he attended the French Culinary Institute in New York.

We are proud to call Omaha our home and so happy we chose to start our lives over in this community. The city of Omaha is amazing, it’s been extremely supportive and welcoming, we look forward to being here for years to come. We hope you love Avoli as much as we do.

The name Avoli comes from combining our daughters names, Ava & Olivia.
