Diner Reviews
  • "Great food, service and atmosphere. My 6yr old daughter had a delicious kids meal with grilled chicken. My girlfriend and I had wonderful meals as well. Our server made great suggestions, was attentive but not intrusive. Would highly recommend!"

  • "Showed up on a quiet Sunday afternoon and sat on the deck. The menu was unremarkable but traditional. We started with the carpaccio which was okay. Good portion size but nothing special. Could have used a bit more arugula honestly. I had the Saltimbucca, she had the Fettuccine. Both needed salt but the port wine sauce on mine was pretty good."

  • "people were very nice, food was really bad. order Filet mignon ($30!) medium rare. it came well done. it took them 25 minutes to bring another one and it looked and tasted like Salisbury steak from an old tv dinner. Bleh."

  • "I've eaten here before for lunch, it wasn't valentines dinner of course but the food was excellent and you felt like you get what you paid for and the service was great. I expected much the same during my reservation for Valentines Evening. However, my girlfriend and I were disappointed in our food that evening despite ordering a little bit of everything on the menu. The staff however were just as impeccable as ever and service was prompt, polite, and attentive."

  • "This was a Valentines dinner with my wife. Their service was disorganized ...probably due to the large volume of people celebrating Valentines dinner. The food was good but when the bill came they charged me for the salad that I did not get.The waitress was very nice and tried to be accommodating but after the no salad and then being charged for it left a bad feeling for us. We finally go it all straightened out but it was a bit of a hassle and not what we had hoped for on Valentines Day. Moral of the story it is a nice place to go if they are not busy but I would think twice about going there when they are likely to be busy."

  • "The food is good and hearty, and the place is reminiscent of a 60's restaurant. We went on a week night. The place was quiet' and the service was good. This could become a regular if you like hearty Italian food at a reasonable price."

  • "This place was a madhouse on Christmas night. In spite of our reservations, the line was out on the sidewalk, the hostess was frantic and disorganized, allowing late arrivals to enter ahead of other people with reservations who had been waiting in line. My son and I finally left and ate at a Chinese restaurant. I'll never return to Speedos. Bah humbug."

  • "Spiedo sounds like Speedo....either way, I would not eat it! Poor management of the restaurant. We arrived for our 7:30 reservation only to run into the folks waiting for their 6:30 and 7:00 reservations and fighting over tables. The hostess did little except whine over how busy it was."

  • "They overbooked or did not pay attention to the reservations they had. Took an hour to get seated and then the service was slow and not at all courteous."

  • "There were not a lot of choices for Christmas dinner and chose Spiedo because it has a great reputation. Even with a 6:30 reservation, it took 15 minutes to check-in There was a crowd out the door. When finally seated, we were greeted by a very nice, yet exhausted server. There were some foods no longer available from the fixed menu and were also told when we asked for more bread, that we had the last of it. It seemed that the restaurant was not prepared for the onslaught, and/or they overbooked. At any rate, the dinner was nice and the food good. I did not have high expectations for a holiday meal, so I was not disappointed."

  • "There were 6 of us who ate dinner on Saturday night, early, before a movie. We arrived at 5pm and the restaurant was nice and quiet. We hadn't been in years since we moved from the area and didn't have high expectations -- we were pleasantly surprised! The men all had the ossobuco special -- it melted off the bone. Bread was nice and warm. My sausage pasta dish was flavorful and cooked al dente plus served really hot. The other ladies had the shrimp risotto and really enjoyed it. Nice meal! We would have loved to have sat in a booth but other larger parties had those or smaller parties of 4. Oh well... really enjoyable though!"

  • "We had the mussels and clams for appetizer. We loved how fresh they were and the sauce was so good that we soaked up everything with the bread! The roast duck special was amazing and the portion was large. Pasta was equally tasty. The service was still good eventhough they had two holiday parties in the main dining area. I will definitely will be back."
