We always come when we come to town. An Alfredo shrimp dish would be nice, but wasn’t on the menu this time. The food is excellent, it getting a bit high priced.

I don't usually leave reviews on restaurants unless they are either very good or very bad. I had a steak and baked potato the steak was cooked exactly like I requested, medium rare but was so tough you couldn't cut or chew it, also my baked potato was over done and dry. the best thing about my dinner was the bottle of wine.

Waitress didn’t appear to know what she was doing; salad I ordered was bitter; and it took 1.5 hrs to get two salads and a dessert for our meals. I don’t recommend this restaurant!

The greeter was not so pleasant, however the woman who sat us was sweet, but mentioned she had been there “all day.” Not really something you expect to hear in a place like that. We have been going to Spezia for years, and I can honestly say that the service and food has gone down hill, and the prices have gone WAY up. We will not be returning until there is better service or food.

Great wine / beer selections to start the evening. Tables are not jammed, which made us more comfortable!
Food was excellent. We had the special salads off the tomato fest menu. Entrees the lamb sirloin which was grilled and roasted. And the spaghetti bolognese with meatballs.
Staff was attentive. Several large groups which were noisy but still a good experience

Best dinner we ate in Sioux Falls. Had the petite filet which was cooked perfectly. Portion size was spot on and the service was excellent. Nice wine selection also.

The overall experience was okay to good; however, the service was fair and the kitchen was very slow for all of the diners this particular evening. The food was very good, as usual, but we were fairly disappointed in the slow service.

We were in Sioux Falls for the airshow and wanted to try a new spot. We loved Spezia! Great wine list and amazing food! My husband had the salmon and I hate the chapters scallops (part of their tomato fest menu). We are already talking about when we can return!

Greeter was very rude and stated they didn’t have a table for us and couldn’t give a quotas as to when one would be available.
Service was slow as it seems like there is not nearly enough help.
Food was only average.

They graciously made a special request appetizer which was DELICIOUS!!! Sausage, peppers, and sauce.

The only glitch in our order as scorched vegetables on my wife's plate. Mine were excellent as we're out pasta side dishes. My chicken parmigiana was very good with one medallion a little too thin. Overall, we were very pleased and would go back.

We love brunch at Spezia and dine there for almost every occasion (Easter, Mother’s Day and Fathers Day)! For this year we chose Fathers Day brunch again and the food was amazing, as always! Our favorite items on the regular brunch are Dave’s Italian Eggs (angel hair pasta with scrambled eggs, ham, Alfredo sauce and cheese) and the malted waffles! I love all the cold cuts of cheese and salami, salads and selection of pastas along with the many breakfast options and the desserts are always delicious (especially the bread pudding). For Fathers Day, they also offered sirloin tips and sliders which were a nice touch for the guys! We will be back again as frequently as we can!

Our special lunch was "a rather disappointment this time". Sandwich bread was dry and the fruit was not fresh. Not the usual treat to eat there that we've experienced in the past.

Waited more than 5 minutes for water/drink order after being seated; service excellent thereafter. Lamb sirloin is my reason for going to Spezia - always very good. A full bar would make Spezia much more appealing to me, since only wine & beer.

We always enjoy celebrating special occasions at Spezias, by ourselves and with friends. This time we were enjoying a birthday, spending the evening with dear friends over delicious Italian food and a good glass of wine. Our server, Dalton, was outstanding and appreciated. Thank you for a delightful evening.

Everything was amazing except for the fact that they made us eat on paper... All tables were covered in paper, to keep the linens clean. Nothing like paying $60-100 for date night to eat like it's McDonald's. The main meal was the saving grace! Chicken alfredo 6 out of 5 stars!

They have a very extensive menu, and the two items we ordered were just excellent. They offer many gluten free choices, which included GF penne pasta with steak and a salmon salad with veggies and balsamic dressing. The service was quick, competent and friendly. We’d go back again without question. Very nice place to dine.
