“One of our favorites for a fine meal without the pomp or expense”
Reviewed November 8, 2008

We've eaten here often - the food has always been very good, and the service is also very good and personal. The decor is very nice, it has the feeling of a fine restaurant. It's not that large, and rarely crowded for dinner. Price-wise it's moderate - we just finished a birthday dinner for 8 (including 4 appetizers, but no drinks or dessert) for $240 including tax/tip. We've tried a variety of dishes any no one has complained about the food yet.

The food is Italian style but the menu is not just a bunch of pasta dishes. Of course there are a few but there's steak, lamb, duck, etc. The appetizers here are especially good.

If you enjoy Fontana's in Cupertino you'll like Spalti's, and vice versa. Fontana's is a bit more refined, Spalti's is a bit more laid-back.

Lunch here was OK, a smaller more intimate version of Il Fornaio. Dinner was better, you can take in more of the ambience. Some excellent wines on the short list, many very fairly priced. Nice service.
