The pizza at Spasso is pretty good. During happy hour you save $2 per pizza. They have a lot of weird appetizers and they are not very good. The service is usually slow, I have noticed this both at dinner time and at lunch. Don't go there for lunch if you have to go back to work as it takes... More

Food is delightful. Understand Spasso is connected to a Wine shop. You can purchase your wine at the store and bring it in to the restaurant to have with your meals. Our waiter in the bar seating area seemed to object to this based on his very poor attitude. Have been to this restaurant several times. Last time my wife... More

On our table was a happy hour menu. Usually, the offerings are available regardless of the hour, but at a higher price outside the defined limits. Not so at Spasso. We just wanted to try one of the menu items but were told that a "new" policy was in effect that made HH menu items not available after the hour.... More

We went for the lunch menu but found out they serve brunch most of Sunday. I'd say it was a pleasant surprise. It was a different menu with interesting choices. The banana bread was excellent and they give it as the complimentary starter. I had a breakfast pizza which I thought would be small but it was actually very filling.... More

Late apps on a Friday night. Wonderful and extensive wine list and some of the best bruschetta in the twin cities. Very reasonably priced and surprisingly quiet and intimate

Invited to enjoy friends at this suburban restaurant. The food was ok, nothing special. Having visited Itsly several times, I can report, it is far from a real Italian experience. Campiello is a much better restaurant. Ciao!

I built my own pizza when I visited and it was fabulous (brie, sausage and pesto). We also sampled several local beers.

I really, honestly don't understand why this place is still in business. Well, I guess it could be because there is no competition. It is the only real sit-down place in the area. That's all I can think of. I've been here probably 10 times for business lunches, happy hours, organization parties, etc. Every time I want to like it... More

Very good Italian restaurant with a wonderful wine selection. They have a wonderful happy hour in the bar and the restaurant has some great food. Really love the chicken risotto! Been here several times including Valentine's, which shows how much we love this place. :)

Spasso has the basics, but the food is mostly unimaginative. It tastes OK, but with so many other available options, it's average. The best thing, however, is to buy a bottle of wine at the liquor store next door and bring it over for no corkage fee.
