    Enjoyable experience but wouldn't be in a hurry to return. The main attraction was the Jazz but this is played in a separate lounge and paid reservations must be made to sit there. I misunderstood and thought we were eating in the Jazz room. Nice meal but no better then my local Italian so wouldn't make the special effort to drive here unless we splashed out extra for jazz room reservations.

    The online menu looked beautiful, varied and I was looking forward to the lunch with clients. My filet (ordered medium rare) was medium well, and tough. The Yukon potatoes were almost liquified, and the beans were almost too tough to cut with the steak knife (as was the filet.) One of my clients ordered a salad with chicken, and it came almost raw, and had to be sent back. The service was slow (though they jumped on fixing the chicken quickly). There was nothing to suggest I'll return, nor recommend the spot.

    We arrived and were seated in a great little back area, on time. The service was fantastic, leaving nothing wanting, including drinks, sauces, etc. Someone at our table quietly removing plates, filling water, attending to the courses, etc every 5-10 minutes. We were very happy with the friendly server and food quality. Pricey but outstanding in every way. Exactly what we went to Spaghetinni for.

    Six of us went out for my birthday, including one person in a wheelchair which was no problem whatsoever. The food and service were truly excellent! It does get a little loud at the height of the lunch hour and meals are pricey, but the quality makes it worthwhile. I highly recommend this restaurant!!

    Spaghettini is a local favorite, although we hadn't been there in some time. We reserved early, and enjoyed the quiet time during our "starter"...a very nice crab cake. Both my wife's sea bass and my short ribs were excellent, and the per glass charge for a nice Franciscan Cab was not bad. The service was good. Between 6 and 7PM, the place filled rapidly, and the acoustics in our room were not to my liking. During the time that we waited to pay our bill, it was loud enough that I could no longer carry on a conversation with my wife. Those who are OK with that environment will really enjoy dining there.

    The service has always been great at Spaghettini's. For years our favorite waiter has been Dar. He hasn't been working when we have come lately. Instead we have had Danny. Danny is wonderful as well. He is really enthusiastic and happy to please. We know we'll have a great night if either of them is our server. We also love the other staff. Particularly the busers. Both the busers on the evening shift have been there as long as we have been coming. They are incredible and back up the wait staff with things the customers need. They are always very professional and extremely helpful.

    We went with a family group of six and the first joy of the evening was the attention, knowledge, and caring of our waitress, Cat. She is one of the best I've experienced in a verrrry long time. Our meals were great and 2 vegans were easily accommodated. Spaghettini's was a local restaurant when we lived in the area so frequented it often. I am elated that I think there food is even better than I remembered! We are thinking about another visit before we leave...If we can get Cat as our waitress.

    needed a restaurant near the 405 and north of the 55 freeways. we were a group of 5, and everyone thought, after the meal, that it was a good choice. the noise level in the dining room, which is not too near the bar, is rather high, but we were able to converse with not too much difficulty with a round table. The menu choices were good, and everyone was able to find something to order. I would probably not make the 20+ minute drive from home if the location wasn't ideal, but would definitely not hesitate to go there again.

    It was my first time at Spaghettini's and I was attending a jazz event at the 9:30 showing and I decided to dine there first before the show. The jazz event was fabulous although I won't dine there again. The prices are very high for the low quality of the food. The appetizer came to the table cold and one of the pasta dishes that were gluten free was served very al dente. My daughter couldn't even eat it. The rest of the meals were just fair. It's a lovely place and I was expecting a better food experience. I will be back at Spaghettini's but only for Jazz events.

    This has always been a great spot for dinner but I had not thought of it for a lunch meeting. It is very quiet during the day and it's easy to get a reservation even if you have a larger group. The location is great if you need to meet with people who are coming from LA, OC or Long Beach. The food is always great. The only drawback is that it is pricey.

    We had not been to this restaurant for quite some time. (Over the years we have been there many times.) The menu has changed since our last visit. Not nearly as interesting now. Seems more limited also. We only found a few items we would order. Used to be we had a hard time choosing from many. Prices have gone up substantially. $50 for halibut and salad. Up the street at The Original Fish Co its $28 and you also get two sides. I am sure the Spaghettini fish is good but I know the TOFC fish is excellent. Other menu items seem over priced; maybe why tables were available on a Saturday night. We will probably not return.

    Food tasted and looked both very good. Waitress very nice. Lounge had live band to listen to after dinner that didn't invade dining area so no interference with conversation. Seating comfortable. A little dark, which I liked. Entrée order separate from soup or salad so dinner expensive. My salad, pasta, and desert and soda, no alcohol, was $65 plus tip. For the price it would not be a weekly event but only special occasions that I would go there.

    We dine at Spaghettini's about one a month, and never have we experienced anything but stellar service and awesome food. the place is CONSISTENT in all aspects. We love, love dining here—whether it's for a special occasion, or simply because we need our "Spaghettini fix." The rack of lamb is amazing, as is the parmesan-crusted sea bass, horseradish crusted halibut....I could go on. Our favorite server is Danny. He is so personable, and really takes pride in customer service when serving his tables.

    Spaghettini has been around for years and continues to be an excellent restaurant with great food and outstanding service. I met a friend for dinner and we were afforded all the time we wanted to chat, without being rushed. We both ordered different fish dishes and the preparation was perfect. Our waiter suggested a dessert that we could not resist and it was delicious. Don't miss an opportunity to dine here!

    I went mainly to hear a friend perform and had dinner as well. The service was top-notch and the decor warm. The food, while very good and cooked to perfection, was very expensive. The bill for one person with a 20% tip was over $100.00 and I did NOT have the most expensive item on the menu nor was there any alcohol involved. I'll go again for the live shows but will probably skip dinner.

    Spaghettini is one of my favorite SoCal restaurants. The service, food and entertainment is consistently top-notch. It's awesome to see couples on romantic date nights, girlfriends enjoying a fun evening out and families with young children in the same place! The bruschetta and pommery shrimp are my personal faves. Kudos to this awesome establishment!

    I was drinking at the bar, transferred to dinner table after my party showed up. Waitress somehow forgotten, food & drink was removed and we waited. Manager came up to apologize and replenish with a new order plus a couple of drinks no charge. Server was exceptionally friendly and courteous every step of the way. Just love it, I've been there before and love it but this is unforgettable. Now, I'll go out of my way to go there more frequently even though I live in Newport Beach
