Overrated ...

We had heard nothing but raves about this place so we were excited to try it. Unfortunately, the food nor the service lived up to the hype. We went with a group so we had the opportunity to try nearly half a dozen entrees and a few appetizers. The food was ordinary Italian - nothing great. And at... read more

I took my grandchildren here for dinner and they totally loved the menu. The walleye I ordered was delicious. Great children's menu and value. Wait staff were very attentive

Spasso actually isn't so hidden, it is very prominent on the corner of 101 and Minnetonka Blvd. I live less then a mile from Spasso and have never dined here. It just seemed so obvious that I was skeptical about the food so I never went in. Last week we decided to give it a try on a whim and... More

Our family revisited Spasso after a year or so. None of us thought that their food was anything but average, especially for the price. I had their pizza. The wood fired pizza should have been good; the crust was very good. However, the sauce was lacking in spices. Ingredients were sparse. I was not even sure that I actually had... More

Had a group dinner in the separate room. The service is good, there is enough parking, the beer and wine list is ok and the salmon and steak dinners were good. The walleye was too dry. The room is allowing for a nice atmosphere. Have to admit that I understand the mixed feedback on this restaurant.

Great happy hour. Good service. Lots of wine choices. Good pour. Delicious food. We love to order a bottle of wine because you can take it with you and have another glass when you get home. Several gluten free choices.

They have one of the best Happy Hour's. They have these great Parmesan flat bread things and wonderful crab cakes on the Happy Hour menu. I don't know of any other Happy Hour on the west side of town that offers crab cakes for happy hour. I won't say they are the best crab cakes in town but VERY tasty... More

The food, staff, and experience is always excellent. Their happy hour is great since it starts at 8:00pm and the wine specials are way above any other restaurant. When we have guests from out of town, this is the place we take them.

Love this place! My experience this time wasn't the greatest, but I have had such wonderful experiences in the past that I will continue to dine here. Love the atmosphere and service was awesome.

Great happy hour deals on drinks and appetizers. Portion were eatable size, meal was warm when arrived.. Not loud with music and chatter which made easy to carry on conversation without having to raise voice. Staff was helpful and answered Questions or found out the answer for us.
