Diner Reviews
  • "Good Food.....Good Service.......Good Value..........Friendly. Bus people need to relax....or they need to be managed better."

  • "Have been coming here for years. Food and service is always great."

  • "Beautiful old mansion with friendly, efficient staff. Many menu options with off-menu discount specials (it's lobster and steamers time!). Parking by the door and function spaces for small and medium-sized groups. Have drinks on the sweeping porch. Open for lunch as well, and great atmosphere for business meetings."

  • "Restaurant appears as though it has not been updated since 1970s. In quiet section of Federal Hill away from vibrant attwells ave scene. Just gave us an uneasy feeling. Service was fair, and found about the same. "

  • "Made our reservations through open table which was very convenient and easy. The table was ready no waiting. The restaurant is located in a grand Victorian style home. We were seated upstairs. The atmosphere was fabulous. You could imagine the house in its day and those who walked the grand staircase. The food was delicious. We had the Gorgonzola bread, the mozzarella sticks and the Calamari. Our main dishes were the Veggie pizza, pasta, chicken Erica and steak. Would recommend any of these! The service was phenomenal. The waitress was so pleasant and we did not feel rushed, the timing was perfect. Would highly recommend dining here. The experience was superb! Looking forward to dining there again. "

  • "very good italian food ..large portions with all dinners coming with soup or salad and side of pasta...well priced"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Spirito's has outstanding food and the price is remarkable. My husband and I like their two for dining specials at $39.99 per couple that includes a bottle of wine and desert. The choices on this special menu has something for everyone. You will never be disappointed when eating at this beautiful restaurant. "

  • "I had been waiting to try this restaurant after many months. Finally a group of six ladies went on a Friday evening. I wasn't sure about this place when I walked in, knowing that it was a former funeral home, the carpet was old, torn and dirty. When we were escorted to the table, the room was beautiful, an old Victorian home with all its original woodwork still in tact. We ordered our meal, which took over 30 minutes to arrive. The food was good but nothing to write home about. The balsamic dressing was very watery and had no flavor at all. The clam chowder didn't have a clam in it. And the spicy shrimp was not very spicy. I am glad I visited but sorry to say, I won't be back again."

  • "I always like to spend my birthday with my family, but as the size of our group continues to grow, it becomes increasingly difficult to find a spot that can accommodate us all and still give that feeling of intimate family dining. Spirito's was PERFECT!! Our table was charming, the decor of the restaurant inviting, the staff friendly and courteous, the wine list more than satisfactory, and the ambience delightful! It's an added bonus that it's a small, locally owned restaurant - a little gem in the west end of Providence!"
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "we ate upstairs and it was like a cafeteria setting, none of the ambience that the downstairs has. The bathroom was not neat and clean and the walls need paint upstairs. The food was fair. The steaks were not very tender or flavorful, the salad dressing had no taste"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Attentive (but not intrusive) wait staff. Beautiful historic building, delicious food. Mid-week dinner special $39.95 dinner for two w/bottle of wine. Park by the door. What more could you ask for on The Hill?"
    Dined on 5/6/2014
  • "Nice place good food but took a little to long to get our dinners, told waiter we had a show but ended up eating to fast to get to show on time."
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "Aside from the good food, the service made our night out. Service was exceptionally good."

  • "The veal was very tender, the portion was a little small. very good bread also"

  • "Just a few blocks over from Atwells Ave and you'll find one of the best restaurants in RI. Spirito's serves up authentic Italian food with both great prices and large servings. I was with a party of four and everyone ended up with a take out bag. Their gravy is mild and delicious. I had the veal parm and my wife had the veal scallopini. The first thing to arrive at your table is a basket of crusty Italian bread served with both butter and olive oil. They had fried smelts as a "special" appetizer. They are a favorite of mine and some of the best I've eaten. The atmosphere is as good as the food. The atmosphere is where you would expect the prices to be a lot higher than they are. The staff is great and friendly."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "When you're finished walking Atwells Street and sitting in the sun on the piazza by Venda Ravioli sipping a cool drink, try Spirito's for a quiet late dinner. It's away from all the "young noise" and commotion of down-town, but not too far away. The restaurant is housed in an old Victorian mansion and the furniture and decor is comforting and a little less than elegant. The food is typical Italian- not great, but plenty good. We go there every time we're in Providence. Just LOVE the whole experience of eating there! I think if you try it once, it will be come a favorite of yours too."

  • "Always a great meal....very consistent! Wait staff is friendly and we repeatedly go back."

  • "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."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "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."
