We were unaware that Specchio closed, and decided to stay and try out what Piattini had to offer. Really disappointing experience. We ordered 4 dishes and they were universally bland and flavorless, nothing special or unique about them. Anchovy bruschetta - the bread was stale...More

My husband and I purchased a Groupon for Speechio and was a little concerned over some of the reviews, but no need to be, everything was great. We had a bottle of the Primitivo which was wonderful, the anti pasta, risotto and gnocchi, and ended...More

We had dinner at Specchio Saturday night. The modern interior is softened by the lighting giving it a romantic glow. Black and white movies (this evening a Gina Lollobrigida film) silently play on a back wall. While we had an early seating and the noise...More

With a large group so one expects the service to be slow. Just to rate the food, it was "pedestrian" at best. Recommend not going with a group of 12-15 or so. The service will be adequate, though the food was not memorable in the...More

Specchio, meaning ‘mirror’ in Italian, serves up the finest Venetian and Northern Italian dishes in a contemporary setting. Chef Gino Assaf has created a menu featuring traditional Italian favourites, prepared daily with the freshest, highest quality ingredients. At Specchio you’ll feast on Italian dishes ranging from wild boar pappardelle to pork chops with gorgonzola, all of which pair exceptionally well with an imported Italian beer or a glass of Chianti. Specchio Ristorante resonates with lively ambiance, which is enhanced by modern fixtures and a contemporary design, complete with a nightly screening of a Fellini or other beloved Italian movies, projected high over the open kitchen. The bar is a popular gathering place for the the after work crowd and locals alike. Step into the dining room for an intimate date, or bring in your large group to dine upstairs, where we can accommodate up to 38 people in our private dining space.
