  • "My family and I always enjoy Spirito's because we know we are going to have a great meal with great service. Take the time to visit and next time you'll be going back with friends."

  • "We had a party of 4 and none of us enjoyed our meal. The food was was bland and tasteless. The homemade balsamic salad dressing was just water. The gnochis were mushy and for $18.95 we received very small portion. We were told that a bottle of wine was 25% off, so we ordered a bottle, when getting the bill, we handed in our groupon and were told you couldn't use two specials. I don't know why the groupon should cancel out the wine discount....We opted to use the groupon, since we have no intention on going back."

  • "Our experience at Spiritos made for a pleasurable Sunday lunch. Our server was fun, witty and knew her stuff. Overall the meals delighted with everything one expects from a quality Italian restaurant. One member of our party requested an item he had seen on the lunch menu and our server was quick to check with the kitchen and place his order. My husband felt his sauced Angel hair pasta and meatballs was a trifle watery but it did not stop him from cleaning his plate! My order of Eggplant Parmesan was tender, oozing with melted cheese and large enough to provide lunch for the following day. The Chicken Marsala dish was picture perfect and enjoyed. Adding to the ambience of the exquisite Victorian house is the ease of the huge parking lot."

  • "as always, excellent food and service. Looking forward to Spirito's again."

  • "the dinner special was awful. fried all panko and hardly any fish at all for $24.95.. the eggplant parm was excellent. would go back but would only order an italian entree. no seafood or dinner specials, italian or not."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Interesting place, traditional "old" Italian menu, a few bright spots. The stuffed quahogs were absolutely delicious, best we've ever had. This is the kind of old school Italian-AMERICAN fare you would expect Billy Joel to rave about in the 1970s, with Mama Leoni-style pasta dishes and lots of dinner entrees to choose from. Surprised by the extensive wine list and the dessert tray was very appealing. The restaurant has a lot of history and local flavor, considering that it is also the very first Italian-American club in the country. We would go again if we are looking for a semi-casual and reasonably priced place to dine on Federal Hill."

  • "We have been to Spirito's on several occasions. We tried different things each time, and it has always been very good. Would recommend to anyone asking."

  • "I read many reviews, many negative, but some outstanding. I suspect this is the type of place you either love or hate! I can see some issues, especially about some of the food quality. Store-bought pasta is embarrassing, with so many local options, but the ravioli and the " bullet shaped" pasta is locally made & excellent. Our waitress offered that information, so we went with that. Our meals, 3 of us, were really good. I suspect ordinary jarred garlic, and much prefer fresh, but my veal florentine w/mushrooms & sun dried tomatoes was divine Why powdered cruddy Parmesan and little butter packets? Bread was great. The building is EXQUISITE...worth the trip for sure! Without that, maybe a B-, but I give it an A, with room for improvement."

  • "Spirito's is our favorite restaurant. It offers everything. Good food, good price, good atmosphere and excellent service. We love Italian food and I live in a state that has many great italian restaurants. We feel Spiritos is one, if not the best, in the state."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "With so many restaurants to choose from, I thought this one would be special for a birthday celebration. However, someone must have quit, and the waiter was so taxed, that our dining took 2 1/2 hours with an hour between appetizers and salads. What a shame because we were upstairs, and when the food reached us, it was not hot enough. I think it was due to a lack of wait staff. I bet the food would have been good if it was hot."

  • "Settled in an old neighborhood mansion, Spirito's is old school Italian all the way. They offer classic dishes prepared the way they've been doing it for hundreds of years. You won't find anything crazy on the menu, but it's a very solid offering with lots to choose from. Definitely would go back. Our service was great, and the setting is unique. Worth a trip if you're looking for good food with no fusion neo-modern flair."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Spirito's is easily accessible from Rt 95. The setting is a marvelous Victorian with high ceilings, chandeliers and decor. The food is very, very good, tasty and generous. Their Bolognese pasta rates with the best i've had and my 2 dining companions were very pleased with their food and first visit. The lemon cake was something to go back for in their opinion. Each of my visits has been very satisfying, trying different foods on the menu. I will be going back for more. Thanks Spiritos!"

  • "We made a reservation for 7 and arrived during a snowstorm. We were thrilled that the restaurant has it's own parking lot and it was plowed. The staff was ready for us and the waitstaff was wonderful. The meals were delicious. Would happily dine there again!"

  • "Went for valentines day with a group of 4, and host was very accommodating. They don't have a bar, but a lounge area. The restaurant doubles as an Italian-American social club, and that sets the tone of the place. Waitstaff was attentive, but food took a bit, maybe due to the holiday. Very cool space, feels like an old mansion."

  • "I wish we could afford to eat at Spiritos on a more regular basis. Not to say that they are overly expensive just not in my budget for regular dining. We arrived late (30minutes) due to traffic on 146 & 95. My wife and I thought this would mean a long wait to get seated (especially seeing that it was Valentine's Day). We waited no more than 15 minutes, a very pleasant surprise. Our server, Danielle was very funny, great personality. My wife and I shared fried calamari with peppers for an appetizer, excellent! My steak a la mama was cooked perfectly and my wife's veal & shrimp piccata was, in her words " melt in your mouth perfect". Another wonderful dining experience at our favorite restaurant."

  • "Awesome place! Awesome food! Great service! How can you go wrong? We had the Wednesday night dinner for 2 - it was $39.99 and it came with a bottle of wine......best dinner we had all week!"

  • "My husband loved his meal of veal brachiolle and spaghetti. My meal of filet and lobster was just ok. The filet was not great quality with 1/2 of it inedible because of white bands within the meat. Not sure why it was butterflied, although it may have been to mask the quality of the filet. The lobster was good though . Next time I will stick to an Italian or pasta dish. I've done that in the past and I have never been disappointed."

  • "All around this off-the-hill restaurant is as good and in some cases better than being on-the-hill. Broadway being the next street over from Atwells makes it a simple and truly easy find. Choices were many and our table for 6 went in every direction; fish, poultry, classic Italian, can you add this, can you hold this, etc. - so you would think that one of the plates would not be very good or a mistake, therefore a diner that wouldn't be too happy. NOPE, not the case. Each plate came out cooked perfectly and every add or hold was spot on. GREAT JOB - from Toni our dining host in getting the details right and to the kitchen for making it all happen!"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Without any question Spirito's has a regular menu that can rival anything on Atwells Ave but the dish that is a must here is their famous Chicken Parmasean. It's pounded by hand breaded and fried to perfection which retains all the juice which pops in your mouth that first bite. Immediately hit with nostalgia that takes you back to that very first time you had Chicken Parmesan as a kid, only this is better. So if you every find yourself with a craving for Chicken Parmesan then you better book a table here so you can get the real deal experience you'll be talking about at work the next day."

  • "We were seated within minutes of our arrival. Frank, our server, was prompt in greeting us, taking our drink order and reading off the specials. My wife and I split an appetizer, the scallops wrapped in bacon. There were 4 nice sized scallops cooked perfectly. A nice start to the evening. We placed our dinner order, shrimp scampi and fruiti de mara. Both entrees arrived in short order, piping hot and smelling wonderful. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her scampi and the fruiti de mara was a huge plate that I was only able to eat half of. We then split the teramisu which was light and very flavorful. A beautiful end to a wonderful meal. Frank was attentive without being overly intrusive"

  • "This lovely building has been transformed into a wonderful, friendly restaurant. The food portions and sides were more than generous (including my manhattan!) , the prices reasonable,the food was delicious, and the menu was varied with loads of specials. A really nice alternative (with GREAT parking) ot the madness on weekends on Federal Hill. The service was a bit slow, but I liked the opportunity to be with friends and we weren't in any hurry. The rooms are small which kept the noise down."

  • "Sadly when we arrived the restaurant did not have our reservation. Open Table had confirmed it. Not sure what the problem was but this restaurant did not have the meet and greet area of the restaurant running well. The Hostess was often missing in action. The wait staff had to push by patrons to get to the kitchen, etc. They were putting leftover food in the take home containers right there in the reception area!!!! Thankfully the food and service were very good but I hope they make improvements in the reception area."
