Strip Mall Surprise

Friends invited us to this restaurant in a Minnetonka strip mall. It was a pleasant surprise, as it was slightly upscale with very nicely decorated. The wine, beer and food menu was very good, and the food tasted great.

Probably my 10th visit to this unique corner establishment in Mnnetonka. Why do we like it? Food is great, but it is the Wine Shop owned by the same team that owns Spasso's that sets it apart from the competion. Before dinner stop in and have Tyler Melton, the GM, assist in selecting a wine outside your comfort level -... More

Like others I really want to love Spasso's but it is just okay. Bar gets crowded so if you do not have a seat at the bar you have to stand, no high tops to grab. Draft beer selection is hit or miss. But they always have nice wine pairings. People go there for special occasions, date night or the... More

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
