The first thing that hit me was that it smelled just like an Italian dinner which is exactly what this place is.
Omaha's Amato's Cafe is best known for breakfast. In fact it is the breakfast ricotta pancakes that makes this place special.
I tried them myself and can testify that they are spectacular. They don't taste "cheesy" but still like a pancake but richer and more filling.
The atmosphere is typical diner. The coffees cups were all from Union Pacific railroad. I'm guessing that they like this place. It's a little divy. The chairs were all mismatched chairs, for example. I kind of like it.
