Went here completely on the spur of the moment while I was in Hamilton. Cozy interior and impeccable service, also had the best gnocchi I've ever had.

Every time I make a reservation, I get really annoyed that they give me a deadline to leave - 2 hours from when we sit. But we never overstay our welcome anyway, but I find it so rude. The reason I keep taking dear wife back is because it is such great food. And that is the reason we will... More

I have eaten here now for number of years and really like going the pasta dishes are to die for. The pizza i had last time however was NOT good it was tiny and dry and we didn't like it. The garlic butter for the bread they serve is soo good and the Cesar salad is really great and delicious.... More

Small interior. We arrived around 5 pm without reservations and were told we could stay as long as we were gone by 6:30. Complimentary bread basked: stale store bought bread with margarine packets. I'm sorry: our love just died. Italian restaurant + butter packet + stale bread = never again. The Caesar salad had no flavour whatsoever. It wasn't pretty... More

Loved our mean there, and the waitress was so helpful. Pasta cooked to perfection. Amazing sauce and seafood. Attentive service, can't wait to go back.

Each time we come here, and we come here whenever we visit Hamilton for the Ride to Conquer Cancer or kids at McMaster University, I am blown away by this little place tucked into a strip mall beside all kinds of low-end businesses. Reservations are pretty much a must, as the place is small, and you are limited, understandably, to... More

Food is delicious but the service is very slow. We came in at 5pm on a Monday for dinner but got out at 6:30pm. Prepare to wait for your food for a very long time. Since I like their food very much, I tried to call ahead and do take-out instead. However, they do not answer their phones. This restaurant... More

This is one of our favourite restaurants in Hamilton. I am reluctant to write this because the more people know about it, the harder it will be to get a reservation! We were there with friends on Wednesday night for dinner at 6 p.m. and every table was filled, and they were filled when we left. It is small -... More

La Spaghett is a small space in a retail mall so not the greatest ambiance but the waitress Laura was attentive and friendly. The bruschetta was good but not spectacular. The appetizer mussels were tasty and the tomato sauce flavourful ... great for dipping with bread Main course pasta portions were huge! We ordered Pollo Cacciatore (Good) and Pollo Tuscany... More

Terrific food, great service, great value!!! Restaurant is a little on the small side but that is what keeps it excellent I think. Reservations are always needed for dinner, but I love going for lunch also!!
