Everywhere we travel around the United States, we like to try places featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. This was a great stop with excellent food. We tried two of the specials they had and they made a small cheese pizza for the kids. The food was great and the portions were big. We went early in the evening and... More

Had to see for myself after seeing Spirito's on diners drive in and dives. Simply outstanding and reasonably priced. Had the veal parmigiana on my first visit. Great tasting sauce and large veal portion . What added to the experience was that I had the opportunity to talk to Mike the owner . So pleasant and knowlegable. Had lots of... More

If you want outstanding food in large portions, then Spirito's is for you.If you want white linen table clothes, well-dressed wait staff, and Italian music playing, this is not your restaurant. Spirito's has indoor and outdoor seating. The indoor seating is almost like eating at a take out pizzeria--only a few tables and pizza boxes stacked high near the kitchen... More

Saw this restaurant featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives a while ago. Being from N.J., I'm always on the search for good N.Y. style pizza and Italian food. Spiritos didn't disappoint! We shared a medium cheese pizza and their special of the day, lasagna with sausage. The pizza was thin and crisp (which mysteriously seems to be such a hard... More

Small casual Resturant, but the food is wonderful! Have eaten there twice I less than a week. Pizza was great and the spaghetti was awesome, my daughter had the Eggplant and loved it. We will eat here many times I'm sure. A definite must!

Watched the episode about Spirito's on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. While visiting our son, who lives in Carlsbad, the four of us just had to have lunch there. The very friendly owner took our order that consisted of Spaghetti and Meat Ball(just one because the meat balls are huge), a Meat Ball Sub sandwich and a Calzone. The Calzone is... More

Thanks again to diners, drive in and dives for this place. A total hole in the wall which just adds to the experience. The line up is huge at 6:30 on a Friday night. We did take out and had them suggest everything we ate. We were more than satisfied. It's simple comfort food!

Went here for dinner. Close to hotel. Owner was running the register. He was accommodating to our large party of soccer boys. We had pizza. Great value. $15/16 in. Thin crust... NY style. Tasty. I heard they are know for the sauce.... I didn't get floored by it, but there wasn't a lot on the pizza. Thanks Spiritos!

Mike at Spiritos brought Italy to Carlsbad! Amazing food, very quickly, and reasonable priced. Over time (I used to work around the corner), I've tried almost everything on the menu, and it's all been satisfying! But, if you're going to try here, you must try the Pizza. It's one of the best I've ever had!

The thin crust pizza was excellent, not too salty. They offered fresh bread to start and it was excellent. We sat outside on the patio, they had heaters on low... just right.
