Quaint night out

On Saturday evening three of us braved what appeared to be a very busy restaurant, being that it's prom season. Deciding we were hungry, we nabbed a table in the bar rather than have the hour long wait and were pleasantly surprised with very quick service from Brandon. He took our orders, helped... read more

This used to be a 4.5 star restaurant. Over time quality has slowly eroded as the marketing went to a 2/1 club which was recently cancelled. We were served approximately 6 ounce warm chicken parmigiana including the cheese and sauce with cold mashed potatoes and gravy with 3 strands of cold asparagus. The server did provide iced tea and cold... More

This is our second visit to Spezia. This time we visited at 5 on a Thursday evening. The restaurant really needs a top-of-the-line hostess. She is your business's first impression. If she can't be friendly and can't smile she is not a good greeter. Having said that, the dinner here was excellent. Our server was friendly and kind, took our... More

Went for lunch on a Sunday, was told they only serve "their fantastic" brunch on Sunday now. This was not mentioned on the website or not easily found there. Well we stayed as we had been on the road for several hours. Food was mediocre at best, nothing was hot. Quiche was stone cold and they had fish on a... More

We ate here mid week, moderately busy so we had some drinks in the bar which was quiet. Food was excellent, had the seafood cioppino and pork loin piccata, would recommend them. Third time we ate here and seemed to be the best we had.

I recently went to Spezia for a Vino Van Gogh art class with my mom. We decided to eat dinner and get a drink before the class, but we ended up being less than impressed. To begin, we had a very strange waiter. My mom and I said it was almost like he was a random person on the street... More

This was one of our favorite places for date night but Spezia has changed. Our server was great. She was attentive and delivered outstanding service. However, the food was just ok. I ordered the shrimp / scallops. There were two scallops on the plate and both were noticeably different sizes. There was not anything special about the flavor or dish.... More
