I have never written a negative review and I am not generally a picky person. I also rely on these reviews when I go somewhere new. That this restaurant gets 4.5 stars is frankly alarming. We were duped for 120$!!!! Dirty and old. Cold, tasteless...More

Out of the 1930's, this restaurant still has its old world charm. Nothing fancy, just good Neapolitan food. Best lasagna and eggplant parmigiana I've had out of Italy.

Great Food!!! Service is hysterical. They serve bread but no butter. Pizza is to die for as well as the homemade ravioli and the veal is so tender you don't need a knife. A MUST GO TO!!!

The ONLY Italian restaurant that will order ravioli at. It is sooo creamy and delicious. As we live in Florida and come up to NJ twice a year, we always come to Spiritos, I've been coming here since 1952 when I was a little kid...More

I've traveled throughout the US and Spirito's has the best chicken parm and ravs dinner in the country. Their thin crust pizza (I typically get the small pie) is also the best. Cash only, but as prices very reasonable you don't have to bring a...More
