Diner Reviews
  • "service slow not enough servers. had to get up from table to ask server for bread."
    Dined on 8/21/2014
  • "Spasso is a neighborhood favorite for us. Convenient and welcoming with fresh satisfying salads or rich pasta dishes. The summer outdoor dining is a great place to relax."
    Dined on 8/20/2014
  • "The food was good. They need more entrees around 12-16 $$$. Waiter was knowledgeable and friendly."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "Great brunch. Food was good and so was the service."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "This places should be standing room only and a wait list for a month, but it is not. The food was incredible. Service was top notch."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "Went with freinds to celebrate two occasions. Got seated outside. Menu offers a lot, but no veal Parmesan to our surprise. Appetizers were good, but they forgot the bread for the mussels. If you get the olives, you get quite a variety. The Spiedini was excellent along with the spicy sausage and noodles. The gluten free chocolate cake was fabulous. Best part is picking out your own bottle of wine and bringing it over from the store to uncork,"

  • "I love to eat here. It's local, great wine list, food is exceptional! Bon Appetite!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "This was our first time at the restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised by the attentive and professional waitstaff. The food was good. The atmosphere was quite loud due to poor acoustics. Hard to have a conversation over the drone of other diners."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "We go here every couple months and have yet to be disappointed. Food is always great. Inventive but not too "out there". Service at times is a bit slow at peak times but we are rarely in a hurry. Waiter are always knowledgable. Their outside patio is very nice and they have added beautiful umbrellas and a fire pit. Highly recommended."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "The menu is surprisingly varied, with an emphasis on Italian dishes but with some nice specials. I had the halibut on a bed of risotto, which was delicious. What really attracts me are the reasonable wine prices. Most restaurants have an exorbitant premium on wine, whereas I found a lovely glass of Earthquake Zinfandel for only $9 which would typically go for $15+ at other "nice" restaurants, if they even served it by the glass. You can really experiment with wine at a reasonable cost with different types of food. We sat in one of the dozen or so booths, which I prefer to the tables. However, it can get a bit loud if you're located near the bar."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "The hard surfaces made for a noisy ambiance. Our server was very nice and efficient. The wine list is extensive and at "retail prices" was better than the usual inflated restaurant prices but prices weren't Liquor Boy retail either."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "Walleye was bland, dry and crust overcooked. Unfortunately sat next to a disruptive table which made it challenging to talk and enjoy meal."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "The restaurant was nice & smelled great, but it was clear right away that the manage was unhappy with the wait staff. We sat at 7:08 & got water by 7:20. We finally flagged someone down as she hurried past our table. "Can you tell us who's waiting on us?"we asked. "I guess I am now!" she replied with annoyance. Our reply: "It's okay if you're not, we just need someone. We've been here awhile." She argued, "I saw you sit a few minutes ago and get your water. When you're waiting, it always seems longer." Our reply, "Actually, we sat down at 7:08, and it's past 7:30 now." With that, we got an apology, and our drinks paid for. However, we got attitude the rest of the evening, & the food did not make up for the poor service, unfortunately."

  • "Great Friday Night Date Night. Good food, great wine, good customer service. Enjoyable end of work week."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "The food is a great value, and my boyfriend thinks they have the best bread anywhere. We went for a late dinner, and took advantage of the late night happy hour apps and drink specials. Yum!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "The last couple times we have eaten at Spasso ( we done there frequently) we noticed an improvement in the quality and freshness of their selections. They have changed the menu slightly as well..for the better"
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "Service was very slow and limited menu was offered (Sundays - brunch menu only - but should allow use of regular menu) so a bit disappointing compared to previous visits"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "First time here. Food and service was very good. Get to your reservation early and buy a bottle of wine from the wine shop that is connected! There is no corking or other fees."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Food was good. I thought there would be less kids there and it was noisy"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Our outdoor group had to leave early because the fire pit smoke was bothering several of the people. I love the idea of a fire pit, but would be great if someone would learn how to use/control it. There is no reason to have smoke billowing toward tables for more than 5 minutes. this went on for a long time til it became intolerable. Thank you !!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "My husband and I had some time following a party and stopped in and were very happy with our decision. It was a great atmosphere, variety of fresh foods for both palates! Our waitress was a gem and told us about the great happy hour specials and Sunday brunch. We will be back again soon!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We went out for a friends birthday and the dinner, beverages, and service were great!"
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "This is the 5th or so time we have been to Spasso's for brunch and it is the second time that the service was very slow. Yes it was Father's Day and yes it was busy BUT I think that situation should be planned for. Food is always good and I love the location which is why we'll be back - but will try to avoid Sundays."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We went for brunch; waited 15 minutes between being seated with a reservation and a waitress coming to take drink order. Another 15 minutes to get a diet coke, a water and mimosa. Another 20 minutes before we see her again; finished drinks before we were able to order food. Took 30 minutes to get our food. My husband ordered their "endless family breakfast" and when he got the second plate, they downgraded the food. Very disappointed. Won't be going back."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Great food, waiter was a little aloof, a bit loud and crowded tables."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Made a reservation for 7pm, showed up and was told we'd have to wait. Hostesses both were rude about it and talked down to me. Was other after 20 minutes only to be told we were accidently paged. After we finally got our table it was nearly 8pm. Service at the table was okay, and the food was alright. Not in any hurry to get back."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "went to Spasso for their walleye - had in the past and enjoyed. not this time, over cooked and burnt on one side. also did not like the vegetarian lasagna. won't be back any time soon waitress was not attentive at all"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "The wine list is abundant at retail prices. Buy the bottle, re-cork then bring home with you! No commitment."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "We decided to try Spasso one more time, as the last time our experiences was disappointing. We'd made reservations and had asked for a booth. I know that booths are not always available. When we arrived, the restaurant was busy, but not crowded. We were led to what I determined was one of the worst tables in the dining room. I asked if there was anything else - and I was met with a heavy sigh and was told that we "would have to wait". We did and we were ignored by the same hostess for the next 15 minutes while others without reservations were seated. None at that same table by the way. We finally got a booth. service OK and food OK, but not great. It is our last time at Spasso."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Love the j wine! Will be back just for that but loved the happy hour menu. The servers were all friendly and helpful. "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "You have a whole wine store to choose from with no corking fee! This allows you to have many price and quality options! The restaurant is very loud, so kids won't disrupt anyone. We had a 4 month old and the waitress loved her! The food and service is also great!"
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Love the new added outdoor space. Looking forward to new menu next week !"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "It took almost an hour from the time we arrived until we got our food. I'm not sure if they were short in the kitchen or what. Our waitress was not very attentive. I would have left her a smaller tip, but 18% was already added to our bill because there were 8 of us. That really bugged me."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "We arrived for our reservation at 6:30 and were told our table was not ready. After 20 minutes of waiting we were seated. 15 minutes after that our waitress finally acknowledged us and took our drink orders. Did not see her for another 20 minutes when she returned to take our dinner order. 30 minutes later we received our dinners. My walleye was fine, The Risotto was overdone and had very little chicken and my husbands steak was overcooked and cold! No apology was given and she did not even ask if He would like them to redo it. They just ignored the fact that it was inedible. In addition, the noise level was extreme. We could barley hear each other across the table. We will not be going back since there was not one redeeming quality."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "I truly enjoy my experiences at Spasso everytime I am there. The menu is outstanding, wine selection is large and the service is always great."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Ate here on 5/14. Place was packed and had a good vibe. Sat down at a high table and started off with the Bruschetta. It was delicious. I am from NY, and it was just as good as I have had in NY. I then had the grilled meatloaf. It was very good. Service was great as my waitress was very attentive to me. Would definitely go back again. "
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "We went there for Mother's Day and ordered a bottle of wine off their specials menu. 20 minutes later the server tells us they are sold out. Meanwhile, she had told us what they were already sold out of that day from the food menu and by the time she came back several more things were sold out, including what my mom wanted to order. We were hoping the manager would come by but nobody ever did. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Usually I love this restaurant but on Mothers Day they were out of both entrees I tried to order. This was very disappointing."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Overall it was a very good dining experience -- service was great, menu had a wide variety of Italian dishes, appetizers, pizzas, steaks at reasonable prices. Kind of a loud place. The flatbread served with the artichoke dip is fantastic. Steak was juicy and cooked perfectly. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Everything was excellent. Just I think they keep th thermostat on the cool side even during winter season. Could be adjusted a little. "
