We found this on TripAdvisor based on proximity to our hotel, and I am so glad. This is a wonderful little restaurant. We were seated a quiet table for 2 where we shared a bottle of excellent Chianti (they have decent wines at reasonable prices). We had dinner and then desserts. I loved how fresh the food was. It had... More

Spasso's is where I go to get an authentic Italian experience. I've both travelled to Italy several times & used to work in the restaurant industry(in the U.S.). This place has the best of both worlds. From the first time I visited (9 months ago), Dayna & Francesco made me feel like family, which was nice being new to the... More

My husband and I just had dinner at Spasso and what an amazing place. The service is amazing, the decor is beautiful and cozy, the food is down right delicious (authentic Italian, made me miss being in Italy). And to top it all off, the owner came and talked to us after dinner and he was so nice and sincere.... More

Had a great meal - lasagna, salads lots of home made warm bread and wine. Service was good, prices are on the high side but the meal was well prepared so no complaints.

My family and I sought out this gem just blocks from the beach while on vacation in Ventura recently. I had seen positive reviews before we arrived, so knew it was worth going to. My wife and our two young girls arrived quite early, well before anyone else was thinking about dinner. We had the whole place to ourselves. We... More

My partner and I love this place!! The food is always good and the service impeccable. Francesco always makes us feel welcome. We are a gay couple and were married last November (Finally, after 20 years!) When we went in for dinner after our ceremony, Francesco gave us a free drink each and a dessert.

Came here because of the great yelp reviews and we were not disappointed! It was great to see an owner and his wife so involved in their restaurant. The pizza is some of the best I've ever had! And the ravioli was beyond amazing. We loved the romantic ambiance on the patio outside. Will definitely be coming back whenever we're... More

We loved our dinner here! We've been lucky to have traveled to Rome and this food is the real deal (the owner Francesco is from Rome). We started with cocktails, which were very generous (lucky we only had to walk across the street to our hotel). The bruschetta was some of the best I've had. Then I ordered one of... More
