When you walk in Spasso's has a long bar if you would like to grab a drink. They have a full bar and have some specialty drinks. When seated the staff is very professional. Tho food is excellent. Can be very busy at peak times.

This surprisingly large, multi-room restaurant is tucked away on Front St. The rooms have the bare brick look and atmosphere unremarkable although a bit tight and very noisy when crowded. It is w/i short walk of home. Service is generally competent and friendly. I have...More
