I have traveled to Italy many times and the food there is the best I have ever tasted. Spasso comes very close to being in Italy! The grilled calamari appetizer are outstanding and prepared exceptionally well. They are a MUST have item on the menu. The arugula salad is a generous portion with slices of authentic Parmesan Cheese on top - excellent! For an entree, I had the papardella with fungi (mushrooms) - it was cooked al dente to perfection and the flavors were as good as I have tasted in Rome. If you are having red wine by the glass I highly recommend the Montepulciano d'Abbruzzio - it is full bodied and glows!!
I love this restaurant. This was my third time here and it just keeps getting better. The flavors of the food stay with you in the best possible way!
