Very small, reservations needed. Excellent food and service. Will go back again for sure. Had to take 1/2 my meal home as it was too much for me. It was just as good reheated next day.Fresh baked bread was delicious.

We went to this restaurant to celebrate a birthday. There was a couple celebrating their 42nd Anniversary. I believe one of the owner's came into the restaurant and started chatting it up with this couple... obviously well known friends, which is fine, however... they were excessively loud and laughing for over 20 minutes while others tried to enjoy their evening...

On a recommendation we tried La Spaghett and boy I'm glad we did. From the first bite of our garlic bread with cheese, to our ceasar salad to the final bite of our main course, all I can say is DELICIOUS!!!! Can't wait to go back. Reservations is highly recommended.

Whenever we are in Hamilton, whether it be to visit a kid at McMaster or do the Ride to Conquer Cancer, we stop in here. This little spot, in a strip mall, offers some pretty great food, a wonderful wine list, and nice people to serve it up. The menu is HUGE, with choices of pasta type, and then sauce... More

I was first introduced to this place when I moved to Hamilton in 2006. I love their fresh made pastas and homemade sauces. I've tried tons of stuff here and have never been disappointed. The restaurant itself is very small but it makes it more intimate. Very well decorated. Reminds me of an Italian villa.

My fiancé and I came here to celebrate a job promotion and it was spectacular! Small and intimate, it was amazing. MUST make a reservation but worth it!

I've been to La Spaghett twice now and I have to say, I love the ambiance as well as the food. It's cozy, the plates are fresh and flavourful and the desserts are delicious. The only reason I'm rating them a 4 instead of a 5 is due to how incredibly long it takes to actually *receive* the food you've... More

I went to La Spaghett and the food is delicious the only problem is that the seating area is far to small very cramped to say the least. The food is 1st rate and the staff is very friendly but until they move to a larger restaurant I will not be going back. I am considered average size so I... More

My wife and I were hooking up with another couple at their house for drinks after dinner. They live off of Upper James so we thought we would give La Spaghett a try as we had heard good things about the restaurant. Not much from the outside but once you are in, it won't disappoint. Food was homemade and very... More

My boyfriend and I made reservations for supper on my birthday. It's a small place but nice atmosphere. The service was fast and friendly. Our food was amazing!!! I recommend coming here for pasta but make reservations first.
