While staying on Inn at the Beach I stopped into the bar for dinner. The dinner salad was excellent as was the bucatini pasta. Not too expensive either. I would definitely go back

Authentic recipes. Delicious pasta and pizza sauces. Patio seating (we brought our small dog). Owner Francesco is very accommodating and staff is always friendly.

Although the location and building exterior aren't the greatest, the food and service make up for it. We had pasta, lemon chicken, and chicken Marsala. Everyone enjoyed the meals.

Had osso bucco for dinner. Others had various pasta dishes, charcuterie as an appetizer and great desserts. The service was excellent and the coctails were good. I would highly recommend this restaurant as a great casual place to eat. More than just pizza here. July 2016

Had Fridate with the hubby here. I love the location so close to the beach but with that comes really hard parking. We were lucky that we only have to circle back once. There is a small parking lot on the side for beach goers and they have a private lot that accommodates maybe 6-8 cars. We made a reservation... More

We had dinner at Spasso with friends who own a house nearby. The service was prompt and the staff was very nice and accommodating. It is possible to have a conversation through dinner which is a real plus in our opinion. My husband had the puttanesca and I had the bucatini ala Grecia. We have spent a lot of time... More

Lovely place just steps from the beach. Hubby had lasagna and liked it. Made with ground beef instead of sausage, but, the menu said so. The chicken was a nice low carb option. Quite tasty. Reasonable prices.

The service was on point and staff was friendly and helpful ! The ambience was nice; quaint with an old world feel right on the beach. The antipasto style appetizer we had was really tasty and the complimentary bread equally as yummy. My sister had a chicken with mushroom dish she really enjoyed and my 2 year old's cheese pizza...
