Love their pizza and calazones

We have been eating here for over 3 years. My kids love to share their medio metro pizza and my husband and I love their calazones. Also, there is a glass wall so that kids can watch them roll out the dough.

We had a very Italian pizza. The crust was thin and tasty. The Grande size was just perfect for the two of us. See the picture. Very near Studio Hotel.

We were really not impressed with this restaurant. Nothing about this place was good. Bad pizza, bad chicken, bad service. Very disappointed.

We were pleasantly surprised with Lo Spago. The ravioli, 4 cheese pizza and Nutella crepe we tried was perfectly done. The restaurant is clean and nice, nothing fancy, so it feels like eating at Italy as the locals do. Definitively a place to visit again. There are many options in the menu and all of them looked delicious.

This is our last day of vacation so, while waiting for our hotel room to be ready, we decided to look for a neighborhood restaurant. We're so glad we chose Lo Spago. The staff were attentive and the atmosphere comfortable. I had a ravioli dish with sauce that included tomatoes and fresh mozzarella. My husband chose a linguini with seafood.... More

I went last week to this place because I remembered a friend of mine told me it was pretty good. So my expectations where high. For starters We ordered a salmon carpaccio, its pretty hard to mess up this dish but they managed to do it. It seemed it was just unfrozen, didn't taste like anything and they added lettuce... More

We have been here several times. This is the Italian place my kids like the most in the San Jose area. Menu includes pizza, pasta and several other dishes. Salmon is pretty good. It is a simple place but food is pretty good and great value for money.

I find this restaurant to be very affordable and offers a decent variety of dishes and wines. I recommend you order: 1. Any plate of pasta on the menu is made with great care and flavor. I recommend the fettuccine Alfredo or the carbonara. 2. The pizza and calzoni. Great for take out or in restaurant dinner. 3. Fish and... More

I was in the mood for a good pizza and Lo Spago advertised itself as a pizzeria and restaurant so I thought I would give it a try. The restaurant was very clean and beautifully decorated. The lighting was a tad bright for fine dining. But perfect if you are a senor citizen like myself for reading the menu. I... More
