Spasso Italian Grill - Philadelphia
Wow!We were going into the city for a walking tour of Philadelphia. We choose Spasso based on it's reviews and it surpassed our expectations!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointsSpasso is always a great experience! We took friends from out of town and they loved it!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Italian Food. Not aGreat Italian Food. Not a fancy place but large selection of tasty food. Soup was awesome6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGood, as usualWe return to Spasso for a good meal, good price, good location, always enjoyable for us.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, reasonable priceWent to Spasso with an old friend. I chose it based on reviews that said the gfood was great and the prices reasonable. That was accurate. Plus it is located near the Independence Hall area, where we were staying. The staff was helpful but not over the top, which I appreciated. The main dining area is small, in a good way, but I could see there were rooms in the back and side for larger parties. Loved it and would go back next time I'm in town.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat neighborhood spotSpasso is a great neighborhood place serving up genuine Italian food in Olde City. The neighborhood is going a bit downhill, but Spasso still maintains its charm. We had the bruschetta, which was nice and crispy. The shrimp fettuccine was perfectly al dente, but the sauce was a little cloying. The portions for the veal porcini were huge, and my friend thoroughly enjoyed the dish.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellentGreat spot for a small group to enjoy good food, a nice atmosphere, and service. Would recommend to friends.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Consistently Good...The food is always good and never a disappointment no matter how many times we go. Unfortunately, our service was not!! Most if the staff are friendly and attentive but not tonight. She seemed like she didn't want to be bothered. We were never told the additions to menu and it just seemed line we were a burden to her. This will not discourage us from returning again. We will ask for a different server if she is it or still there for that matter!!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSpasso's is a wonderful placeHave eaten many times. Tried different entrees every time. Also excellent. Never a bad meal5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMRelaxing and enjoyableParking is a breeze with lots on both sides of the restaurant and Across the street. Meeting a party of 12 and enjoyed the convenience of having a Relaxing drink outdoors while waiting for other guests to arrive.
Everyone loved their meals, the appetizers and dinner portions were much larger than expected And the service was excellent. The pasta dishes were all homemade, the seafood was very fresh and tasty and we All agreed that it was a pleasant and enjoyable experience and will Definitely return again. The Zouppa De Pesce over pasta was more than enough for two. Even though we were stuffed we decided to order the dessert sampler and profiteroles and enjoyed it as much as the meal too!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of our favoriteThis is one of our favorite restaurants when we visit our son in town. Food is consistently good and service is friendly and accommodating. One down side is the front dining room can be noisy when it is full and not much space between tables. Ask for a side booth or the back room if it is open. Just a side note we also enjoy their restaurant in Media, Pa. Same menu and quality.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMwent here for my birthdaywent here for my birthday this past weekend and everyone loved absolutely everything we ordered. The grilled calamari was amazing! Had the crème brulee for dessert, was delicious and big enough for two! The noise level was pretty high. I didn't mind it, but others may if they are looking a romantic setting. Only downside was the service was extremely slow.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways GREAT! Never disappointed.Always GREAT!
Never disappointed... my friends and guest ONLY want to visit Spasso's when we get together for a dinner night out.
Consistent food, great staff and wonderful service!
My favorite in Philly and on the East Coast!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOne Of The Best!Has to be one of the best restaurants in Philadelphia.
I have been to all the best reviewed ones and Spasso beats them all.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWent there on Easter. As always,Went there on Easter. As always, food was delicious, staff was accommodating and knowledgable, and the Creme brûlée my favorite!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExceeds expectations!I had been there before and thought it a great treat for my husband's 40th and it was an absolute hit! As a first timer, he wanted to try everything but he focused on the grilled calamari and escargot for appetizers. Both were the best he'd ever had and for a main dish he selected veal. This veal beat a place he's been going to for 20 years! He posted his great experience on facebook and has his family planning a big event. His birthday dinner was a great success!
As a an added benefit the service was fast and fabulous!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good choice!! NeverAlways a good choice!! Never disappoints! Great family get-together/party venue. Wait staff is always pleasant!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was a great find forThis was a great find for a large (11) group. The food was delicious from the appetizer platters to the homemade pasta. Very accommodating and attentive staff.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
