Reservations were not honored within a reasonable time. I made a reservation on Open Table for 7:15 and we were not seated until almost 8:00 pm. no waiting room inside so dress warmly if cold ouside. parking can be tricky.

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.

We have eaten here countless times over the years, and it never fails to disappoint. Great neighborhood restaurant, however also worth the drive if you were looking for great Italian food. 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!

The fact that they have a wild salmon and trout Is why we go to This restaurant
But this time the trout was so paperthin it wasn’t worth the value -won’t be going there and it was not worth the price

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.

We have eaten at Spiazzo's for many years,the food is always consistently good. The atmosphere is warm, friendly and service is efficient, you are never rushed to leave. Somehow no matter how busy they manage to seat you within a few minutes of your reservation.

We had our 55th anniversary dinner. The food was excellent and the service was terrific.
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.

Spiazzo is a consistently good local spot ranking with the best Italian restaurants in town. There are always several specials and a good wine list. The owner is always present and makes things are going well. I recommend reservations on Friday or Saturday. The (special) artichoke ravaolis are awesome.

When my party and I were there, the restaurant was nit busy so I cannot comment on noise level. I had the roast duck which was a large portion and excellent. One of my friends had the pumpkin ravioli which he thought was excellent. . My other friend had the sole dire which he commented had too much Ken ok n fir his taste. The service was attentive without being pushy. The wine lust is a nice Mic of Italian and California wines. This was a very nice experience.

I have written so many reviews for Spiazzo I am running out of words.
It is my favorite Restaurant, and I eat here at least 2 times a month,
sometimesI am there once or twice a week. The food is The Best Italian,
and the Wait Staff are absolutely the best. Almost afraid to say that,
for fear they will be offered jobs elsewhere.

 (New England)·Dined on July 15, 2017

We came here for an extended family dinner. Everything was wonderful - the food, service, and ambiance. I had the Veal Saltimboca, others chose various items veg and non-ver. everyone was VERY happy with their dinners. A note about some other reviews here: some noted that their food was salty or in some cases underspiced. Northern and central Italian dishes, when served in Italy, are typically on the salty side, and usually depend on the natural flavors of the ingredients. Meats are often marinated in saltwater. Otoh, southern Italian dishes frequently depend more on applied spices. But in any case, as with any good restaurant, if you prefer your food to be less salty, you should let them know and I'm sure that they'll be happy to accommodate your preferences.

I have been going to this Restaurant since it first opened, as a matter of
fact I went to the previous restaurant before Spiazzo opened there.
The food is consistent and the service is superb. It does get a little
noisy, since it is always packed...but if you make reservations on Open Table,
you will be taken care of, they do seat walk ins but you may have to wait
a few minutes, but it is worth the wait, I think the Italian Food certainly
gives North Beach a run for the money.

Really great food in a neighborhood restaurant that oozes charm. Fantastic serrvice by real Italian employees! My favorite is the wine list. Not only are there some great wines to try, but the separation wall betweeen tables, maybe a former planter, holds the bottles. You can simply grab a bottle and place it on your table, your waiter will come by and open it! Try the Primitivo - fantastico! This is a small restaurant and it gets busy so be patient. The wait is worth the service and the food.
