Weekend lunch menu far more extensive than week day menu. Excellent diverse menu selections with a nice selection of half bottle wines. Great value with large portions. We arrived late for our reservation. We did not allow enough time to find parking as parking can be difficult in West Portal. They honored our reservation and were gracious about our arriving late. Not noisy and it is easy to carry on a conversation.

Four of us went on the evening of New Years Day and it was really jumping. There was an excellent collection of specials and an interesting wine list. The quality of all our meals was excellent. Service was perhaps a bit slow, but totally understandable under the circumstances.

The food was great, but the portions were small/middling. We had a reservation, but it took them at least 20 minutes to seat us. When they did seat us, we were squeezed between 2 other tables, which was not comfortable.

This really is a great restaurant before a show. Great food at good prices, friendly, and FAST (which also makes it good for impatient children). Then you just hop on an L, M, or K and you are downtown in no time. MUCH better than eating downtown!

As always, Spiazzo is at the highest level of our Neighborhood Favorites list. The only hit tonight was a 3 on service, which was a night where our waitress was very busy, probably should have been a 4, which they usually earn.

We felt rushed the entire meal. It was obvious they wanted to turn the table and it was pretty awkward. In fact, it was so uncomfortable that my husband actually lied about still reading the dessert menu just so we could buy an extra 5 minutes of not having the waiter move us along. The food was fair, but prices a bit steep considering the neighborhood which consists of families.

Neighborhood Gem and a Good destination Spot.
Traditional Italianish menu. Also Duck,Rabbit, and interesting fish and starters.
Good wine list includes many Italians at fair price

A must if you are in the area. Far better than other Italians near by.

Just tried the new octopus salad and it was one of the best I have ever had...also the seafood risotto was terrific. Five stars!

A real gem in the West Portal Neighborhood. Food is delicious, even more so recently. Menu offers a wide variety including vegetarian options. It's generally quiet enough for easy conversation although when really busy it can get a bit noisy. The waiters are attentive and friendly. It's easy to become a regular.

We have eaten here probably a dozen times or more. They are usually crowded. But generally we get seated close to the reservation time. This time we had to wait 45 minutes past the time to be seated. I don't think we will go again on a Saturday. Week days are better.

It was a very hot evening which made the experience less than great as they don't have air condition. Otherwise We would definitely go back.
