Spiazzo Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
Went for Valentine's Day and had a delicious meal. Our waitress was wonderful and the food was delicious. I hd the pasta with tomatoes and garlic. My husband had the mushroom and oyster risotto. Both were delicious . Had a cappuccino at the end. All was wonderful. Very crowded, as it was Valentine's Day. The tables are quite close together, but still loved this restaurant.
Reserved dinner @. 6:30pm 2/7/18 for 3 people,on-site 6:20pm,we’re seated near the door table 61. Ordered Nebbiolo red ,beer for our guest. Start with ceasars salad,then main course Salmone Fantasia,tasted wonderful,chicken for my wife and our guest. We have been coming to this restaurant and always gets an outstanding service. Our server tonight was Lupita and keeps our glass of water filled and and asked if everything is alright. After dinner we had coffee and dessert. The dessert menu didn’t have what I like Affogato but Lupita says shell make it,I love it. My wife and guest had Tartuffo. Our server keeps our coffee cup filled until it was time to leave the place. What I like at Spiazzo is they don’t rush you at all as some establishment does and the staff are all friendly. Thank you Spiazzo will keep coming. Anyone craving for Italian food and Italian wine should go to Spiazzo. As we were about to leave our server says will see you again.
We dined recently at lunchtime when the dining room is much quieter than on weeknights/weekends. However, it must be getting popular as there were four other tables of diners there too. Frankly I suppose they have also discovered how hard it is to locate a nearby Italian restaurant that opens round the clock other than Spiazzo.
The food is actually alot better than in the past as the portions are a bit more to match the price point. Everything was freshly cooked and came out steaming hot: Spaghetti with (tiny) scallops and prawns as well as the minestrone soup and the ab fab fritti misti (i.e. fried baby shrimp, calamari pieces, and a few zucchini pieces).
Have to say that whilst our server was as friendly as always was also a bit ditzy (e.g. forgetful) but overall still great.
Very delicious meal. Minestrone was excellent, as was saltiboca. Bread was so-so.
Waiter was very personable and attentive. Liked the many offerings of 1/2 wine bottles.
Good value !
Negs: Restaurant is a bit cramped with tables very close to each other. Also the experience began clumsily as we were informed that we may have a 15 minute wait even though we had a reservation. Why take a reservation??? Fortunately the wait was just 1/2 that time and the many positives outweighed the initial negative.
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.
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.
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!
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.
