Spasso is one of our favorite restaurants in San Carlos. The food is excellent. The service is excellent as well. We shared the calamari, and it was great. The aioli dipping sauce is delicious. We shared several entrees so we could all taste a variety of items. The pork chop is simply scrumptous. The bacon wrapped chicken was also spot... More

We were down in San Carlos for the Art & Wine Festival this last weekend and we wanted to have a late lumch. There are so many places there to eat, but we wanted to try somewhere we had never been before. We went to Spasso. It was too hot to sit outside, but they had a nice table right... More

Spasso was a really good Italian restaurant until recently (summer 2014) when the cousins split. One took Spasso, the other took The Cask. I like the Cask better.

This is a great place to have a good Italian meal, but there's a lot of choices besides just Italian, The food is always fresh, and the service is good, Not at large restaurant, but comfortable, especially for couples

We have been coming here since 2008 and the food is always good. They have less choices but many starters that almost all are good. There is always room either inside or outside and the restaurant is quiet as opposed to town and Piacere (which we also like a lot).

We live in a nearby and have eaten at this restaurant probably six times over the past several years. One night the food will be very good the next it will have us wondering why we ever came back. The last time I ate there was with out of town company. The food was not very good and was I... More

We have visited Spasso regularly since the restaurant opened. The sheltered sidewalk dining area is great because we are most always with our Welsh terrier, Bessie. The owner knows us well and when he is there, brings two ice cold martinis without our having to ask. I quibble with the need to indicate "best meals" ever had in that to... More

We have dined at Spasso for the past 4 years. Our experiences have always been quite pleasing. The service is welcoming and the food has always been flavorful. It really is one of our favorites for a mediterranean menu. During the spring/summer, the outside seating is great, and it is fun to see people enjoying the meal with a well-behaved... More

We were a group on a business trip (more than a dozen of us) and Spasso's accommodated us nicely. We had a long table near the door, with plenty of room to get up and move around - which is appreciated. Nothing is worse than being in a big group and getting stuck at the table for the entire meal.... More
