Yet another sucky Italian eatery. The sauce on their food taste bad and they drown everything with it. The salads are a joke. I tried several items on their menu and everything has the same bad saucy taste. Don't bother going there. I love Italian food but this just sucked.

I'm been going to this restaurant for years and never had a bad meal. Their veal valdostana is excellent and my favorite Penne Ala Romana is out of this world. George, the manager is like a friend to me. When someone like him can remember what I drink and what I like to eat, you feel honored. I will continue... More

Spolini's offers a family style meal which is always a great value. The food is very good but the menu needs more variety from the usual "parmigiana", "francese" style Italian food.

I visited Spolini's on a Sunday evening. The table bread was fresh and crispy with a complimentary Bruchetta for two. We were served a wonderful salad with oranges, cheese and grapes and balsalmic vinegar dressing. She had eggplant rolatini which was slightly bitter. My veal was very good, but a small portion.The only complaint was that the house wines were... More

Spolini's is perhaps the best Italian restaurant in New York -- let alone Jamaica or Queens. This family-style Italian is known for terrific service, and the best, make that the greatest, penne a la vodka in town! While there, you must also try the chicken, veal and fried calamari. Thanks to Pete at the bar, who mixes the best drinks... More

We ate there one Sunday in April and the food was absolutely fabulous. The sun was out and we enjoyed a leisurely meal al fresco. After being seated our waiter, Luchian from Romania, brought us some butter and fresh breads that were baked with the most unusual fillings like cracked pepper and pancetta. We noticed that the restaurant had a... More
