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.

We frequently order for takeout. Food is good and service is too. The patio is a nice place to eat-in. But I like the takeout best. Brunch is very well done too.

Ate here on 5/14. Place was packed and had a good vibe. Sat down at a high table and started off with the Bruschetta. It was delicious. I am from NY, and it was just as good as I have had in NY. I then had the grilled meatloaf. It was very good. Service was great as my waitress was... More

On our first visit to Spasso, we found the place to be friendly, good service, and at moderate prices. The chicken parmesan was especially tender and tasty with a crème sauce rather than tomato sauce (an excellent way to serve it). Farfalle fruti de mare was especially tasty. The only fault is the pizza. The crust is good, but the... More

Spasso's is a good restaurant that I want so badly to be a great restaurant, but it is not quite there. The food is really good ... I especially love the bread. The restaurant is warm and cozy ... but a little too loud. The service is spotty ... good sometimes, but downright awful other times. One waitress made my... More

I LOVE their happy hour: both the selection and the low prices. (Never mind that they have TWO happy hours every day: 4 to 6pm and 8pm to close!!) Also, their bottles of wine priced at retail (with NO MARKUP), NO corkage fee if you buy a bottle next door at the wine shop. Seriously good wine deals there! I... More

Two of us in our party of six, were sick the next day?? Can't say it was the food for sure, but it seems like it could have been?

Spasso has some excellent points. Best (for me) is that it is jointly owned with the next-door wine shop. You can buy your wine from the big selection there, have them uncork it, then take it in to Spasso at no extra charge at all. The atmosphere is friendly and the service is usually efficient. The menu is extensive, so... More

We have been to Spasso many times, but I will focus this review on Happy Hour. Recent improvements to happy hour include allowing you to sit anywhere until 6:00 pm. Previously you had to sit in a overcrowded bar area that filled up early. The HH wine was a cab, very tasty and a generous pour. The meatballs are outstanding... More

Great little restaurant to go hangout have a drink or two before dinner. But dinner wasn't that amazing, wasn't bad, just bland. Their menu could use some updating.... Great pizza Neapolitan style. Would recommend to check it at least once.
