I was very pleasantly surprised with large menu, differences sauces and choice of pasta. Especially Gluten Free. I ordered GF pasta and Basilio sauce - it was just amazing. Desserts are great as well. Very small and intimate atmosphere and waitress was very friendly and good with her food... read more

We visited La Spaghett on Sunday evening, dinner for 3. Our waitress was polite and courteous but was the only server in this small, comfortable restaurant. The front end of the meal was as you would expect, prompt and efficient. The wheels fell off after that. Our dinner plates sat in front of us for 25 minutes after we put... More

I can't believe that this restaurant has been here for over twenty years and we've never eaten here. What a discovery this is for us. The menu is amazing, and the food is superb. We've now eaten there four times and every meal has exceeded our expectations.

My favourite Italian restaurant. They make their oen pastas and sauces! Their bruschella bread with cheese is awesome. I go probably once a month. You must make a reservation. There are maybe only 12 tables. It is located in a small plaza beside a sex shop (they keep their curtains closed due to this). Don't let this change your mind... More

Place is small and food is just fantastic. Just like from your mother. It is your choice of pasta, sauce and meat. Will recommend 100%

The location of this restaurant - in a strip mall next to a Stag Shop . If you were driving by , you wouldn't ever stop in . At least for the kind of quality meal you can get there . La Spaghett is a 'hole in the wall' - with not many more than 30 seats - reservations definitely... More

As always, we had the best time for dinner here tonight. Such fresh and hot food. So honest in its preparation. Great wines list. You would never find this place if we did not tell you about it! So many great pastas and sauces to choose from. This menu is unique in that you choose a sauce, and then pair... More

This place is a little hole in the wall, but the food is amazing and the service is impeccable. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for some good Italian cuisine.

At the recommendation of a car salesman we had lunch here today. We just about didn't go in as the plaza looked suspect, and the neighbouring stores crass. We were glad we decided to give it a try! The food was fresh, tasty and delicious. The Caesar salads were generous and fresh with real bacon and cheese. The pasta dish... More

There is nothing special about the outside of this restaurant, but the inside is very chic. It is small, so reservations are needed. Great wines and great fettuccine Alfredo. Service was superb.
