Not one bad thing- I tried three different dishes on different nights. All were excellent and the prices were lower than I would expect to pay for that good of a meal. Staff was great and knew me by sight on the second visit.

From the open kitchen you know that the chef is proud of his food. Best dish is the homemade pasta in any sauce.

I will start by saying that I love Italian food. So when I moved to Philadelphia three years ago, I immediatly started looking for good Italian restaurants. I decided to stop in at this place after work on a Friday back in the Summer. It seemed like a great idea at the time. Upon arrival, I realized that it was... More

I visited this place last week with my wife while on our short trip in Philadelphia. It has a great atmosphere, very romantic, and awesome food. The sauce is spectacular, the service is friendly, and the prices are decent. They have a full bar, a wide variety of items on their menu, and overall we enjoyed it.

This Front Street restaurant feels more "neighborhood" than "Center City." Nothing elegant, but comfortable. Some reviewers have remarked on the annoying presence of TV's, but there are none in the front room. Service is friendly and efficient. If you want to get through a meal quickly pre-theater or pre-movie, no problem. If you want to linger, order dessert and coffee... More

Everything we ate was good - calamari fried and grilled! mussels, crab, the pasta with shrimp was to die for and the dessert - the chocolate mousse was heaven! really soft and decadent! Service is...

After researching local downtown restaurants on Trip Advisor, something I always do in advance, we chose Spassos. Upon entering we were greeted by Joe DelViscio, our server. He was very courteous, knowledgeable and attentive. The wine was excellent, the chef did an excellent job preparing our meal, the food was top notch, I can't praise them enough. Joe is an... More

We enjoy coming to this restaurant and although we don't always have a reservation we have always been seated in a prompt manner. The food is really good, the atmosphere has a busy family feel, and the amount of food for the price is just amazing. We make it a point to eat at Spasso's every time we visit Philly.
