  • "What a great evening. The service and food were fabulous! The wine list was extensive and had a huge range which we like. We will be back and tell others of the great good and service."

  • "This restaurant serves the best food and with class! I hope it was a quiet saturday night because of the 4th of July! It deserves to have a full house but there were a very few that were there when we visited. Please visit this restaurant and you will not be disappointed."

  • "If visiting for dinner, make sure you don't have breakfast or lunch that day, because you'll want to order pretty much everything on the menu. Portions are generous and the quality of the ingredients, cooking, and presentation are flawless. Do order something as an appetizer (you'll be pleased), and I'll happily recommend the "Genovese" (Italian pot roast over noodles with vegetables). Oh, the tapenade served with the bread was so good we asked to add a small container of it to our bill so we could enjoy some at home the next day...delicious! I'd love to be able to comment on any of the many delicious-looking desserts they brought around on a tray, but unfortunately didn't have enough room left to even share one. Highly recommended."

  • "This small place is a gem. Four different people, four different dishes and four raves about each dish. Don't be shy try something new from their menu or a wonderful special! Save room for dessert, even if you choose the gelato you won't be disappointed."

  • "Went for our 39th anniversary and the night was special as I hoped for. Spaggi's class of food is on a level of its own. The chef is absolutely fantastic with years of experience. Wine/champagne both very good. Excellent wine list! In one word: CLASS!"

  • "This is the only inland empire restaurant I have found that serves Beef Wellington. Waiters have a great attitude and provide excellent service. Do not recommend for young children. Chef comes out to chat with you about your meal. Fantastic!"

  • "Had seventeen people in a private room to celebrate college graduation. Everything was excellent, the food, the service, the ambiance. Delicious. We'd never heard of this place, but we will be back the next time we are visiting the Claremont Colleges! "

  • "After spending three days in Pasadena for the Universities graduations since 2007 we always stop here for a great lunch. Three of our party got north american pasta special and I got the european. Food was outstanding along with the service. We closed out their lunch service and never felt rushed. Highly recommend anytime you can get there."

  • "We were a little concerned about this place for its location and the fact that I was able to get a reservation for Mother's Day dinner the night before Mother's Day. It turned out to be pretty good! Wife had beef Wellington. The meat was cooked well and tender although pastry was not flakey. She didn't like the crab cake in the Wellington since it was kind of fishy. The lamb chop I got was ok. Think I'll get the rib eye next time though. Server (Olivia?) was great but a bus boy spilled water in my wife's plate while pouring water for her and don't think he apologized. Overall it was above our expectation and we will return again. "

  • "We are always amazed at the amount of specials featuring fish at Spaggi's and they don't disappoint. Equally interesting are the salads and the desserts. It is always a great place to experience great food. Looking forward to returning soon."

  • ". We were seated for about 20 minutes before anyone was assigned to our table - we kept getting water refiled but no one came by to tell us about specials or ask what we wanted. Since no one had come by I flagged a random waiter who found our server. Once our server was identified the service was not slow. I noticed that the next table got an amuse buche which we did not get - perhaps they were special or our server was not clued in to that. We had the two house recommended dishes osso bucco and the italian pot roast. Both were very hearty and good. The two others in our party, college students, had vegetarian pasta dishes that they enjoyed. Wines are sold at a fairly high mark up for California restaurants."

  • "We love Spaggi's. It is our go to place for a quiet dinner or special occasion. We have not had a bad meal at Spaggi's. The chef and staff are always serving up good food and presented beautifully. We had Drew as our server, he is the best. Very attentive and aware of the customers needs and request."

  • "MAYBE IMPROVE THE VIEW OUTSIDE BY BLOCKING IT....IT'S ONLY A PARKING LOT. THE NIGHT WE WERE THERE A YOUNG GROUP OF LOUD AND MISCHEIVIOUS GROUP OF BOYS WERE IN THE FRONT OF THE RESTAURANT FOR FAR TOO LONG, BEING LOUD AND RUDE WITH VULGUR LANGUAGE."

  • "Third time here. Came as recommendation from a friend a little while back. Has not disappointed. Great service, decent wine list. Owner is very attentive. You can tell local come back over and over. We both had the lasagna. Very Very good. We will see you again Spaggi's!."

  • "Quality has lessened over the last year. What was once a nice treat to drive an hour to get to is now up to debate. They catered our wedding so they have a special place in our heart with my wife and I. Flavors are still there but quality and presentation is now lacking. Waiting staff were good though my wife had to ask repeatedly to one server for Splenda which he still forget until she called him out. I don't know what's going on but Chef Henry's crew needs a pep talk or he needs to clean house."

  • "We decided to revisit Spaggi's after a long interval. We first dined with friends right after their opening, and didn't really return until now. What a delightful surprise. The food was fantastic, the service was great and it was a wonderful dining experience. There were so many specials it was a hard decision, but the Sea Bass was a great choice. The salad was also wonderful. We are looking forward to returning, soon."

  • "Great food! Beef Wellington was sooo tender, vegetables (crisp & sweet), desert, amazing! I had one issue........& that was entering the restaurant. Wasn't sure if we were in the right place. There wasn't a Hostess and we're new to the area! But overall, it was fantastic!!!!!! Oh yeah, my husband enjoyed his African fish dish was very flavorful! Sorry I don't remember the exact name of dish!"

  • "We are never disappointed when we dine at Spaggi's. The menu selections are consistently tempting, and the food preparation and service are always delightful. We were sorry that the half bottle of wine we originally chose was not available, but the alternative was just fine. We save Spaggi's for very special occasions, as it tends to be a bit too pricey for our budget. But, that just makes it all the more enjoyable when we do dine there."

  • "Spaggi,s chef Henry does a great job. Inside the restaurant the ambience is up scale and great. Outside in the patio where my wife and I had valentines dinner, the ambience is terrible. You are seated right among the cars in the parking lot with a lot of distractions and noise. We frequent Spaggi,s on special occasions, because of the great food, service and "ambience" inside the restaurant."

  • "Very good restaurant. Bit overprced, and menu is pretty limited for children unless they love spaghetti. Best for major occasions."
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "Our server was attentive and informative.We both had fish dishes, which were interesting, tasty, and attractively presented. The short wait for the main course was bridged with a tasting plate of the soups of the day, both of which were delicious. Dessert (chocolate cake with raspberry filling) was yummy. The refined decor belies the restaurant's strip mall location. We were in the area for a convention, but if we lived closer we would be eating there again."

  • "The owner's of the restaurant, Henri and Anna, really do a great job of training their staff. The service is excellent, the food tasty, and you can always expect to see Henri and Anna on the floor talking to customers. It is a warm atmosphere that makes for a good evening."

    Dined on 1/12/2014
  • "This restaurant is at a level far beyond its location in both quality of food and service. Flavor profiles are representative of a well trained cook staff and chef. Cost-wise one is most certainly getting what one pays for but more so because the wait staff enables a comfortable and enjoyable experience. Wine selection is prime and varied. Romantic in terms of ambiance. Only issue location, location, location - in a strip center near Lowes. If this place were in an old-town setting like Claremont or Pasadena reservation would be impossible given so many folks would be frequent & recurring guests. But on Foothill Blvd in a semi-commercial area well - location permits us to enjoy its guilty pleasure. A rare jewel. A must try."

  • "Felt like trying a new restaurant in the area and found Spaggi's on Google. It is definitely a hidden gem in Upland. We went for my husbands birthday. Very nice!! Food was delicious and the service was fantastic. I definitely want to go back to try other dishes!!"

  • "The food was fantastic. I had the lasagna with the tomato cream sauce and it was so rich that I couldn't finish it. My boyfriend had the spaghetti with meat sauce which was fastastic as well. I would have loved to have coffee and dessert but I was too stuffed!"

  • "Despite being in an otherwise unremarkable commercial area, Spaggi's interior could be at a nice hotel. The only suggestion would be to tone down the slightly glaring overhead lights. The specials included half a dozen fresh fish dishes, an usually high number. I had the South African sea bass that was cooked perfectly. The accompanying roasted potatoes and mixed veggies were good, but could have used a touch more seasoning. Her pasta dish, Penoe Dalle Vigne Di Filippi - veggies in a white wine cream sauce - was excellent."

  • "Just like other high priced restaurants. Food and service are good, not great. Pay $20 - $40 for a main dish but get a small plate of food. Not worth going back to."
