Only "complaint" is there was never the beef available. The pan was always empty. Everything else was very good.

I always enjoy Spezia. I ordered a steak and it was ok. I think if you go to an Italian restaurant you should probably order Italian! My bad.

I eat here regularly and the food is consistently very good. Service can be hit and miss, there are several good servers and some that are just adequate. Gary is the best server there and our favorite in Sioux Falls. There is a new steak on the menu called the Sizzler that I’ve had twice and is absolutely outstanding! If you like beef, order it!!

We had a wonderful meal. The service was good. Our waiter was too speedy (missed his dose of ADHD meds, is my guess) and made some mistakes and slopped drinks. The food was excellent. The portions were huge! Actually too big. Everyone was able to hear each other around our table of 8 so the noise level wasn’t too high. I would most definitely go back!!

We had wonderful service and appreciated the very quiet atmosphere provided. We had 5 family members and enjoyed being able to converse and enjoy the dining experience without loud music, etc. We were very pleased and the food was exceptional as well as the service!!!

We love dining at Spezia. We go for special occasions, dinner groups, a quick bite at the bar, committee meetings, dates, etc.
The food is always delicious and the waitstaff is highly trained, professional and pleasant.
The ambiance is cozy and semi quiet, great for dates or meetings.

We dined at Spezia for our anniversary. This wasn’t our first time at this restaurant and we were looking forward to it because it was always very good every other visit. I don’t know what happened, but the food was semi- warm and obviously microwaved. I normally don’t complain, but we spend close to $100 there every visit and expect better quality food. As far as the service- it was pretty bad. Our server was either just inexperienced or lazy. We waited 15 minutes just to get the credit card slip to sign so we could leave. We won’t be back. It’s Minerva’s for us from now on.

The food was great. Our waiter was amazing. The lady at the front was horrible. We had a 5pm reservation. We got there at 4:50 and the lady said it would be a couple minutes to be seated. We sat there for 15 min watching later reservations be seated before us. I walked up to and ask her why with a 5pm reservation we were still waiting at 5:15 and she looked at me and said she forgot about us.

Overall it was a great time! Sarah was a great server and was very helpful. But my husband's steak was overcooked and really bummed him out. My spaghetti and sauce was good but nothing to brag about. There was a long wait for our one appetizer, then 15 minutes until our salads then longer wait for dinner. We had high expectations and they were not met but again wasn't too bad.

The Acadian Shrimp is my favorite, I order it each time I come. 10 out of 10 score. Shrimp and sauce was spicy but not to spicy and the shrimp was just perfect, the best I have had. Great job!!

The food at Spezia’s is excellent— great value for the price. They have a happy hour half price wine, beer, and pizza special daily which is excellent value. The staff are all very friendly and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Spezia’s to locals plus tourists to Sioux Falls.

I like Spezia, but I think it's overrated. The food is ridiculously expensive and the service is just okay. I wish they had more sauce options for their pasta (and more pasta selections) on their menu. I'm glad we had a gift card to help us pay our bill.

The staff are always wonderful. I love to go there for lunch and in the evening for dinner out with my husband for a quiet meal. One thing I would recommend is that the women's bathroom needs to be updated.
