We booked Spasso Cucina for a 50th birthday celebration for 11 people. The staff took such good care of us and the food was excellent. All of our selections were prepared with care and great ingredients. Not one person at our table was unhappy with their meal. Several people had the lasagna and raved about it. We also ordered pizzas,... More

If you are looking for a great meal, Spasso's is your place. We have visited this restaurant numerous times, and have never been disappointed. The portions are great, at a very reasonable price. Every employee is very friendly, and caters to your needs. Wonderful appetizers as well. (A glass of limoncello never hurts either!!)

The best Italian food in Ventura County with exceptional service and an unassuming atmosphere that doesn't distract from your date.

We have lived in the Ventura area for a year or so and discovered Spasso a few weeks ago. They served the best and freshest pasta we have had since moving to Soutthern Cal from the East Coast. The owner is Italian born and his attention to detail is apparent. The menu is focused on Pasta and Pizzas and they... More

Found this place close to our hotel after arriving in town late. It was a bit busy and the wait staff seemed a little frantic. We waited a little longer than usual for our food, but they did seem short staffed. The manager did come over and ask how everything was and apologized for the wait.

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
