Diner Reviews
  • "We ate dinner here the first night of our stay in Fort Lauderdale, based upon other Trip Advisor reviews we expected it to be better than it was. The waiter was nice enough - but he kept telling us how bad the service was going to be because they were busy - it was slow, but he didn't need to keep reminding us how bad it would be. Also, the noise level was loud, we got wet when it began to rain and the food was just okay - especially for the price. I'm being generous in giving 3 starts overall - probably 2 1/2 would be more in line with our experience."

  • "I was entertaining some vip customers and Spazio was on point the whole night, we are a large party and we were served like we were a party of four. Food was Great! Perfect!"

  • "We had eaten here before our last cruise but the variability in reviews had me a little worried. We were a group of 13 people. We were sat at our table promptly. The waiter was really good and checked back many times. The food is not gourmet was is very solid and tasty. The drinks were large and delicious. The view of the beach and ocean are breathtaking. A previous review questioned "who would pay extra for the view?". I certainly would! We will be back in February on our next trip to Fort Lauderdale."

  • "too loud, beach crowd, false setting of nice romantic place. Waiter was too busy watching world cup, could not make suggestions was not friendly. I would never return."

    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Restaurant is right on the main oceanfront drag, and is a little overpriced because of it. Food was good, service was a little slow. Given its location, the variety of clientele and the weather (windy, rain while we were there) it was a nice evening."
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "They did not have any record of our open table reservation. I showed the hostess a screen shot of my reservation and she said none of their staff uses the application. Waited 1.5 hours and meal still was not served. Waitress was not tentative, nor apologetic for food not coming out. Cool people watching but not recommended for dinner."

  • "Made reservations for to have dinner with my wife for Valentine's day at this restaurant and service was horrible. First and last time. We were seated curbside and literally inches from the couple next to us, not very romantic or intimate at all. Our waiter never returned to check on us after taking our order and our first and only round of drinks. The bus boy came to our table and I asked for our drinks once again and still no drinks, finally a manager came by and I canceled the drinks and asked for my check. Finally the waiter shows up with the check. It was a little busy but not THAT busy. Would not recommend this to anyone I know. Hopefully they'll make some improvements."

  • "It was very nice. The service was a bit slow fir drinks and then it picked up a little. I recommend order the dinner at the same time the apps are ordered. A little noisy but I didn't mind. Good entertainment. Relaxed atmosphere."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We went to Spazio for Valentine's Day, which is always risky at any restaurant. But our table was ready, the waitress, while very busy, was very good and friendly. The wine list was strong, and the whole red snapper was very well done. The ambiance is also appealing, Overall, we'd go back, no question."

  • "Food is good. Indoor seating is best. Even though outdoors has the better view of the ocean, the seating is super close and inconvenient."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Food for the group: Chicken Picatta, Chicken Parm, Spaghetti Pesto were great. Meatballs were just okay. Children's pizza is more like garlic bread and was a little burnt. Not an ideal children restaurant but they do have a kids menu. Traffic and parking on the beach are miserable - bumper to bumper and no valet - you have to find your own parking on the beach. There is a paid lot behind the restaurant. We chose an early dinner to avoid traffic (5:30pm) and it still wasn't early enough. Four stars only because of the noise level - which is extreme. You will not hear anything but the music, which is difficult if you are going with a group and want to chat, which we did. I would go back for the food."

  • "I took a client here for lunch. We were in suits and everyone else was in swim-wear and drinking huge drinks. It was not a problem, but I guess I didn't realize what the situation was. This place is located across from the beach and has a party atmosphere. The food was excellent except for the calamari which was really chewy. Our pasta dishes were wonderful and the waitstaff was very helpful."

  • "We took a group of 15 veteran travelers who commented days afterward about the food quality of the restaurant. Food was fresh and hot and prepared to everyone's tastes. Portions were more than we could finish. The restaurant is more of a bar / restaurant combo with a modern theme that seems to cater to the late night crowd as well. Only negatives were: the speed of service (1) server for the large group, music was a bit to loud for good conversation and a sweating overhead A/C duct dripping on the table. We would definitely recommend Spazio to friends and colleagues."

  • "We made a reservation for 12 people for a 25th birthday. As people arrived, they were seated immediately. They did not make us wait until everyone arrived. Great music playing in the background. Our server arrived and took drink orders as we arrived. Once we received our drinks, we gave appetizer order. Great selection. Food order was taken promptly as well. All food was absolutely delicious! The server was attentive to entire group. Since there were 12 of us, the gratuity was added. It was only 15% added, so I did give additional tip as it was warranted. Overall a wonderful, fun, and delicious evening. Will definitely be back!"

  • "The menu is very diverse. I had a seafood sampler with shrimp, mussels and calamari which was amazing. Entree was the seafood wine sauce risotto, could not stop eating it! Amazing food and large portions. The wine was a bonus. Definitely recommend!"
    Dined on 1/27/2014
  • "For a table of 4, we were seated too close to another table that had about 10-12 people, They were seated after we arrived. I was swatted in the face twice (by accident) by people from that table. In addition, we were seated outside. A heater was located next to where we sat, but the heater wasn't strong enough. The service was very slow."

  • "We celebrated a "surprise" 40th birthday party at Spazio's. The waiter, Kyle, was superb. He went well beyond anyone's expectations to ensure a memorable evening. If ever visiting Ft. Lauderdale this restaurant is a "must do: location and if you want to be "wowed", ask for Kyle to be your server, he won't disappoint."

  • "This is s great restaurant on the Beach with excellent food and wine list. Heather was a wonderful Server!"

  • "Not many places on the beach will take reservations for large parties. We had 18 people and the staff at Spazio did a great job. The service was great, the food was great and the price was good. Great location on the beach. We'll be back!!"
    Dined on 10/27/2013
  • "Although the location and ambience were definitely on the touristy side, the food quality and service was surprisingly good. The pasta and specials were reminiscent of the quality food found in the northend of Boston."
    Dined on 10/14/2013
  • "Spazio is located across from the beach and attracts a young crowd. There was good live music (guitar) where the outdoor diners were and we could still catch some of the music inside (doors are open). Flatbread and bruschetta were notable and main courses were all very good. Our server had a bit of an attitude at first, but improved. This is not the place for a quiet evening out, but if you don't mind the liveliness, the food is very good. We enjoyed sitting in the raised dining area inside; gave more of a view of the outside."
    Dined on 10/12/2013
  • "My fiance and I went to Spazio on a vacation because we wanted to eat by the water. The setting was beautiful, but I cannot say the same about the food. It's an "Italian" restaurant that doesn't make their own pasta and uses frozen produce (tisk, tisk). The pasta dishes came out with too much CANNED sauce and saturated in oil (neither one of us finished our entrees). All in all, the ocean-side setting was enjoyable, but the over-priced, poor quality food would keep us from ever going back."
    Dined on 10/4/2013
  • "We loved the meal, had great service. The only downfalls was the cigar smoke wafting in from the patio tables. We will come again."

  • "Terrific beach view table on A1A was the perfect setting for lunch and drinks. Pizza was light, crisp and cheesy. Spouse had a well prepared fresh fish sandwich. We've been here for dinner too. A beautiful wine cellar is the backlighted decorative centerpiece. A restaurant of class along an exciting street."

  • "I have been going to Spazio for years. It is always good. It is reasonably priced for the area. My kids were in middle and high school when we started going there and it is one of their favorite restaurants in Ft. Lauderdale."

  • "It was a very nice restaurant with a view of the beach from its terrace and a cool interior. There was a bar in the center of the room and at night it must be quite beautiful with the way the lighting is set up. We had to ask for bread but we were completely alone inside and there were a few tables taken up outside. The food took some time to come out but it was delicious and visually appealing. The desert choices were fantastic in that they had a wide variety."

  • "We found this place for breakfast while walking along the ocean. The view can't be better, the food was good, the service was friendly and attentive. So we decided to try it for dinner. Dinner was delicious, nice menu, reasonable prices, big portions. And the staff, from the hostess to the wait staff to the busboys continue to be attentive, helpful and very friendly."
    Dined on 4/28/2013
  • "The Food at Spazio is good. The scene is lively. The view is fantastic. The service is random, chaotic, and belligerent. It took three times for the server to bring the correct order to the table and offered no apologies each time he brought the wrong order. The table next to us received the wrong pizza order but decided to keep it as they were in a hurry. To add insult to injury, Spazio automatically includes gratuity on the bill (I realize they do this because of the large number of international travelers that visit). If they automatically add gratuity and you don't feel it's worth it, you can and you should ask to have it removed. Food and Service go hand-in-hand; Spazio hasn't gotten the memo."
