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."
Dined on 3/1/2014
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."
Dined on 2/14/2014
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!"
Dined on 1/29/2014
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."

We had a wonderful private dinner
then attended a gathering upstairs. A great night out!! The food both for dinner and at the reception upstairs was outstanding."
Dined on 12/18/2013
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."

The food is like being back in
Italy. Good service in a unique surrounding. The menu is extensive, the portions are large and the food is always hot. You are not rushed to eat between courses but you are not waiting long to be served. The service is friendly. What a great way to spend an evening at dinner."

For the most part the food and

Very quiet restaurant in a
beautiful restored mansion. Nice elegant atmosphere without feeling "stuffy" - wait staff very friendly. Water glasses were refilled quickly. Food portions were large and the quality excellent. Great for a romantic evening, business dinner, or dinner with friends. Would not take small children here."

Everything about Spirito's is
good. You are keenly aware that the owner is making every effort to please his guests, and I believe with great success. The place was very busy for a Summer Saturday night in Providence. There are plenty of offerings of traditional Italian food to choose from as well as specials. The portions are generous, the preparation excellent, and everything is good. Prices are reasonable, though I thought the specials were pricey. It's not Al Forno, but when you're in the mood for home style Italian, it's a good place to go."

Very well prepared meals for a

I really like the victorian
building for this wonderful neighborhood eatery. The food is wonderful, if they didn't run out. In our case, a couple of items were already gone, so a little disappointment. One personal peve of mine is when there is not a complete description of the food item. In this case, the gorgonzola garlic bread said nothing about being covered in balsamic vinegar, on the menu. When it arrived, it was, and so I could not touch it. Other than that, everything was wounderful. Nice wine list, including by the glass, and wonderful creme brulee."

The food was good, service was
very good however the dining room itself needs to be renovated and updated."

Enjoyed dinner for 6 the other
night. The 3 course dinner special with a bottle of wine was just right for all of us. Our meal choices included, veal, chicken, and eggplant. Each dinner was excellent. Our waitress was friendly and had a great sense of humor. We will be sure to return."
Dined on 6/14/2013
Great meal. We did not expect to
have steamers but when we heard they were available, we gave them a try and they were the best we've had anywhere in the state. Actual meal was excellent - had the surf & turf - which was perfect. Had to run to a show so we couldn't stay for desert but the oreo cheesecake and chocholate lava cake looked great and we'll be back some day to try them both. Having their own parking lot is a great feature that was not lost on us. Overall a fantastic experience and while this was the first time here, it will not be our last."

We had to change our reservation
more than once and not only did they accomodate our party but the service and food were spectacular. A rare gem and a rare find."
Dined on 5/18/2013
The restaurant called me after I
made the reservation to say that they thought they had blocked the time out as unavailable, and they could not honor the reservation. Forcing me to fill in the ratings when I didn't go is idiotic, but I will do it so I can submit this survey."

Spirito's was a fun experience -
great atmosphere and food with a very accomodating staff. The Polenta & Sausage appetizer (large enough as an entre) was outstanding. Would not hesitate to return or to reccommend to family & friends."

Great Italian restaurant with a
beautiful decor of an old Victorian home. Plenty of parking available- no reason to deal with parking on Federal Hill when you get this quality of food and environment the next street over!"
