A Little Hidden Gem

La spaghett is tucked away in an unassuming strip of shops on Upper James. You might drive by it everyday and not even notice it BUT once you step through the doors you are glad you did. It's a great place for a date night or dinner with friends. The food is wonderful and the service great. Just... read more

We have been going here for the past 5 years about 4 or 5 times a year. The food is amazing with that homemade touch and taste. I love trying all the different sauces which you can match with the pasta of your choice. Every time you go there the taste is slightly different again owing to the homemade touch.... More

We went for lunch. It was a small place but we were able to get a table. The portions were pretty big for the price and the food was great. We paid the extra dollar for bacon on our ceaser salad and it was fresh and plentiful. It was a good meal and we will be back.

We hadn't been to la Spaghett for a few years and decided to visit again. Being a small restaurant we made a reservation the day before and it was a good thing. We arrived for our 5:30 reservation, and it was nearly full. The service was attentive and pleasant, and we soon were sipping a delicious Californian red wine. Caesar... More

This is the only place IN CANADA that I'd such an amazing pasta plate, simply delicious. No place in the city can come even close to them in flavour, when comes to pasta dishes.

Had some great pasta with my boyfriend one evening. They didn't take reservations which was unfortunate.. we were waiting quite some time before we got a seat. Place is very petite but you're so close with your company which makes for a nice, intimate dinner. I had penne alfredo and added chicken, it was fantastic. I hope to visit again... More

We decided to head out on a cold January night. Haven't been to the restaurant in years and it didn't disappoint. Awesome bruschetta and great selection of sauces and pasta. Will definitely go back again soon.

I went here with a friend for lunch. The restaurant is very small but clean. The food was very tasty and the sauce was perfect. The pasta was obviously home made and delicious. I would recommend this restaurant to small parties and groups if they like Italian.

A girlfriend and I went for a semi annual girls night out. Our first visit to La Spahett was exceptional. This visit did not measure up. Service was hap hazzard, while effective did not have the personal touch that we experienced the first time. The meal was good, however not quite up to the standard of the previous meal. I... More
