Spinasse's pasta is the best we'd ever had. If I were to go again, id get just two giant bowls for us to share. Great ambiance - It was a perfect romantic evening.

The four of us had the Menu Degustazione with the wine pairing. All the food was delicious, but there was so much of it that we didn't eat much of the entrees. I'm not complaining though, it made a great lunch at work the next day.

Absolutely amazing food there, nice staff, pasta is the best I’ve ever had.... would love to see more chicken dishes or something like that on menu. But please keep the pasta! It is to die for. Thank you.

We've had this restaurant on our list to try for quite a while and our only regret is that we hadn't tried sooner. The food was excellent - beef tartare appetizer, angel hair pasta with pork ragu and the rabbit meatballs where all delicious. The service was also great - courteous and friendly, just what you would expect from a top-notch restaurant. I would definitely recommend Spinasse to anyone who loves Italian food, especially, pasta.

My husband and I celebrated his birthday here recently, and we were blown away. The service was friendly, attentive, but not intrusive in any way. I enjoyed the Tajarin al ragu...it must defy the laws of physics, somehow, to get fresh hand-cut pasta so thin. The atmosphere is stylish, and absent of any pretension. It really was a perfect evening!

Generally, dishes were over-cooked and over-seasoned. Roasted brussels sprouts were very black and not enhanced by excessive balsamic vinegar. Pasta and lentils also over-seasoned. However, the roasted rolled pork was excellent.

Our food was delicious (pasta with meat ragu and pasta with roasted broccoli and mushroom ragu). The recommended wine paired well. Bread was delicious—crusty outside and airy pockets inside. The service was friendly and attentive without hovering. We had to rush on this occasion, but would love to return to sample more from this great restaurant.

I'm from San Francisco and I've been to the best places in the city.

This restaurant is just as good as S.F.'s best and the menu is creative and unique.

I looked at the reviews on Open Table and had a good idea of what to order.

There were four of us and we tried to share almost everything on the menu.

The cipollini onions were incredible and the pasta's were out of this world.

The insalata di cavolo rapa was light and refreshing.

Next was the fontina fonduta. We needed more bread to soak it all up

We shared the pork belly, Bistecca and rabbit meatballs and also got a side dish of brussel

sprouts. It was a perfect meal made even better by the young and attentive staff.

Can't wait to go back on my next trip.

Food sharing between 5 people was perfect. Pastas were outstanding. Rabbit meatball and beef cheeks were really tasty. Food value was on point with every course.


Wine service was good, but the overhead on the wines is excessive. Overall fabulous experience, but be prepared for wine cost shock.

The food was great. While pictures may make the servings look small, the pasta is surprisingly dense. Very good, ordered an appetizer and two whole pasta dishes and left very full.
