    The food was tasty and your orders are served fairly quickly. If you’re having trouble with what to try, start off with their pizza, you won’t be disappointed.

    We had the best waitress and that ramped everything up a notch. The food was fantastic. I ordered the pumpkin ravioli special and it was so lovely. Everyone like their food. Sitting by the door in the winter is cold with the door opening all the time.

    My fam always celebrates Xmas Eve, so I made a rezzie TWO WEEKS EARLY. When I got there for our EARLY (6P) rez, the place was NOISY and PACKED (why I made our reservations early!!!)—and they OBVIOUSLY didn’t reserve a table for us. Luckily for them, they had a great server named John from SD who immediately recommended the much quieter outside (parklet) where we also got to pick out own table. 🍽️ Once, the female owner came Into the parklet to look around for new guests, and gave me the stink eye (!! presumably for speaking up for my rezzie earlier—NO ONE has ever called me overly sensitive). We have love SPIAZZO (grandma from Lombardi’s fave Italian restaurant, so there’s that recommendation) as long as we’ve been in the hood; about as long as they’ve been open. Their customer service has CONSISTENTLY been hit/miss in the way I described. When I am charged good money for a meal experience, i expect good experience across the board. Poor customer service from management end up a UNACCEPTABLE. I hope SPIAZZO (we’ve supported for 25+ years now) management will read this and get with the program.

    The problem with this place is ambience and decor. Food and service are good, choices are plenty and satisfying. Needs a “Restaurant Impossible” style makeover.

    I love this restaurant, a neighborhood family favorite. This time I had the cioppino which was delicious. It was perfect on this cold, raining evening. We ate outside in the sheltered dining area which was more comfortable than expected thanks to the design of the dining shelter and heaters. The staff couldn't haven't been more gracious and accommodating considering how nasty the weather was.

    Food was pretty good although my dish was too salty. My boyfriend's fish dish was overcooked. The table behind us had three rambunctious boys who the parents clearly could not control. It was my birthday. We didn't even look at a dessert menu because it was so loud! Our waitress was very good though.

    If you're looking for good Italian food in West Portal, Spiazzo's is it. Cozy and generally quiet (unless it is packed). Great food, service, and ambience. I've eaten here dozens of times (100's?) over the many years. This place is always reliable.

    We sat outside, which was nice as we had our dog with us. There was one annoying barking dog outside with us. Our waitress, while nice seemed to forget about us after the food was dropped off. My pasta was overcooked but our other two dishes were good. It would be better to sit inside.

    I have been a patron of Spiazzo for years. I was a little surprised at the prices of today, but they aren't the only restaurants who have noticably raised prices. The food was cooked to perfection, the waitress attentive and helpful. There was a large party of 10 sitting not far from us but they left about halfway through our meal and the noise level dropped significantly. They offer outdoor seating, but without heating lamps, it was untenable to sit outdoors. This is still the pandemic and I would have preferred the ability to sit outdoors. Overall, it was a great experience and the friend I brought was there for the first time. He loved the food and restaurant as well as I did. I still would recommend this fine Italian restaurant in the hub of West Portal

    Three old friends get together for a comfortable Italian lunch in the West Portal neighborhood. Service is friendly and efficient. We shared a beautifully plated antipasto and each of us enjoyed a pasta/rice course. Portions are generous and shareable. We ended our meal with tiramisu and coffee. Everything is delicious and straightforward. Best of all, we came from different parts of the Bay Area and it is steps from Muni Metro.
