Vegetarian Lasagna is outstanding

We eat here once a week. Great happy hour. Full menu with lots of choices. Really like the wood fired pizza, seafood pasta, polenta fries, warm olives, and especially the vegetarian lasagna.

It is our local hangout. I have found there food to be good, but used to be great. Service is good and they have nice happy hour.

Unfortunately this area of Minnetonka is seriously lacking in restaurant choices. Happy hour is good - but the happy hour food is very strange and nondescriptive. Prices outside of happy hour are WAY too high - can't justify it. The great news is that you can go to the wine store next door and purchase a bottle, bring it in... More

Went there for lunch with friends from work. I tried the 2 for $10 lunch special with penne bolognese and tomato bisque soup . The lunch special offers a nice selection of options with soup, salads and pasta dishes. My penne bolognese was good with fresh parmesan on top. The soup was very disappointing though. Thick and gritty and tasted... More

I really wanted to like Spasso. We live nearby and it's the closest thing to a relatively upscale restaurant in the neighborhood. So I try it about once a year and am always disappointed. This time I tried the charcuterie plate for $10. The price was the best thing about it. The mustard had the most taste of anything on... More

This was the first time I was here. With 3 others that have been there many times. Sunday night, slow, but seems reason for excellent service. Got the service, not a very happy group, at least who we had. I had black and blue Cobb Salad. The skirt steak was cooked fine, very un-tender and un-flavorful. Salmon burger which is... More

I always love their wine selection and love the polenta fries for happy hour, salads, pasta and pizzas but have found other entrees inconsistent

Spasso's has just the right atmosphere and hooked to a wine store so they will cork your own wine for you. Recomend to all,

My husband brought me to Spasso to celebrate my birthday on a Wednesday evening. We had been forewarned that the noise level was high, but we were seated in a booth in the bar side of the restaurant and although it was louder than I would have liked, the meal and service more than made up for it. Our server... More

Popular spot in an area without many non chain restaurants. Food is Italian themed and is mostly pretty good. Wine prices are good, they have a wine store next door. It is VERY noisy! Service OK. They may not do as well in an area with choice of places to eat.
