Service fast and friendly. Good homemade Pappardella. Easy parking across the street with meter. Walking distance to Spruce Harbor Park.

Nice wine list and reasonably priced. Delicious salad, pasta dishes. My ravioli was a bit bland. I gave higher marks for my husband's red sauce pasta meal. Very busy, almost too big with several dining rooms. Because the prices are moderate, many families were there. Kind of crazy atmosphere - noisy.

WONDERFUL!!! large portions and great reheated. The others with me had the Sea Bass, Eggplant Parm, and Shrimp... More

I have to say my meal was not outstanding but wasn't that bad either. We all started with app. Four Caesar salads and one mozzarella app (fried like mozzarella sticks but better). The salad was plentiful but very under seasoned. Entrees were okay. Seafood dish (mussels, clams, etc) was also under seasoned. The pasta bolognese was good. The papardelle pasta... More

Went with a group of 21 people. Service was attentive but not over bearing, they gave us a chance to talk and took our order when we were ready. Classic Italian fare well cook and presented. Portions are large, most in our group couldn't finish. The filet of Bronzino was outstanding. Only criticism was that it is noisy, but maybe... More

We went here for dinner the night we arrived and went back every night we were in town! The menu and food are great and the service is exceptional. Our server, Sandra, was a great part of the experience each night.

This was a recommendation from a friend and it was spot on. Excellent service & cozy ambiance topped off the delicious homemade pasta. I had the linguine with clams and my daughter had fettuccini with shrimp in a pesto sauce. Both were fantastic. Amazing flavor and large portions. Glad we skipped the antipasti. The bread was good although cold and... More

If you're in Philadelphia and looking for a good, hot fresh Italian meal be sure to put Spasso's on your agenda. The staff is always friendly and efficient. The food is always hot and quickly prepared. The hot and cold antipasto can be a meal in and of itself. Great selection of wine and adult beverages. Enjoy

We were searching for an Italian Restaurant in the old town of Phili. The food of Spasso is good but not so good as mentioned, so a 3/5.
