Contemporary Italian
Sprezza is a Roman Restaurant and Tavern created by Julian Barsotti, Chris, DJ and Martin Donohoe. The restaurant pays homage to the bustling and energetic Eternal City. Our food draws inspiration from the bold, diverse and comforting cooking of modern Rome, as well as old traditions that date back thousands of years. Our focus is flour and water, and our specialties are Pizza al Taglio, handmade and bronze die extruded pastas. You can expect classics like carbonara, cacio e pepe and Amatriciana executed with sprezzatura. And personal interpretations of Roman cuisine- Inspired by taste memory, the bounties of the 4 seasons and our community and culture. Our craft cocktail program has a focused emphasis on Italian spirits and our wine list is composed of only Southern Italian winemakers. “Tutte le strade portano a Roma.”

Took wife and daughter for their combined birthday celebration. The manager was prepared and very gracious. He offered us an appetizer at no cost. One of our orders came out wrong. Without hesitation, manager insisted on making new and allowed us to keep the wrong. Overall, just really positive experience. Will be back again

As always, Sprezza was an amazing night out for us. Drinks, pasta, dessert, and wonderful. My only complaint was the addition of black olives to the sashimi and the irregular cut of the fish. Other than that, our night was spectacular.

Very charming spot and easy location without the harassment of downtown venues! Food was delicious but would not order the Carbonara again...a bit too gummy ☹️

Celebrated our son’s birthday. Our son’s dog had passed away 4 days prior and to say we were depressed would be putting it mildly. Our server, Dave “Last” made us forget our sorrow and celebrate the occasion. Dave was just outstanding!!! Definitely our go to place. Thank you, Dave and Sprezza staff.

When my bill came it was $59. When they swiped my card it came back as $70. I figured they had already put on an 18% tip (without asking or stating anywhere that they would do that), so I put $2 more on to make it a 20% tip. The amount that cleared my bank was for $78. Be aware when your bill comes.

My friend and I decided to dine here for the first time in celebration of my birthday. I was pleasantly surprised with a birthday card signed by the staff members. Our host/waiter, David, was very welcoming, patient and helpful with the menu and wonderful recommendations. We will be return customers due to the flavorful food, pleasant and relaxed staff, and ambiance of the restaurant. Truly a true neighborhood gem.

As always the food and service was phenomenal. Took our friends here who were visiting from out of town (as we have been raving about it forever) and they loved it. If you haven’t been to Sprezza yet, you need to go!! Hands down the best Italian in Dallas!

Everything was great, but honestly, the Cappelletti was so incredible I had to take a break between bites. I don’t know how I can’t order it every time I go there. Best pasta I’ve ever had.

The food is consistently excellent at Sprezza. Our flatbread pizza with artichokes and mushrooms was very good and the carbonara pasta and shrimp pasta were both very well done. The only disappointment was the bourbon cocktail (can’t remember the name) which was not what we expected and just wasn’t very good. Giant ice cube that seemed like it was a frozen grapefruit slush.

Not recommended at this point. Lots of potential. Has dropped off significantly since they first opened.

Menu is unique (Roman) and they should do a much better job explaining to Dallas customers. Wine list was difficult and totally unrecognized.
Server was not helpful and you could tell he did not want to be there. Restaurant was half empty on a Saturday night during the Holiday season. Not good.
Although the restaurant is nice looking and comfortable, they bought really bad, cheap holiday deorations from either MJ Designs or the Dollar Store. Horrible flat red bows on the sconces, a tacky thin white fake tree that we imagined one of the dishwashers decorated. Real turn off. Make you think the food may be poor quality. No decoration is better than Dollar Store stuff. Also plastic poinsettias on the outside. Gross.
