Italian
There is nothing complicated about food, and nobody understood this better than the Italians. They knew that a delicious meal did not require elaborate preparation - just proper ingredients, and the passion and patience to let them work their magic. At The Little Sparo, we apply these principles in all we do. From our fresh baked naturally-leavened bread and pizza to our homemade extruded pasta, every item is prepared with gentle, attentive care. Come enjoy the comfort of Italian cuisine, in our newly renovated, open-concept restaurant with breathtaking views of the St.john's harbor that carries right through to the narrows. Book a table in our elegant dining room or come relax by the fireplace in our cozy, inviting lounge. Our kind and knowledgable staff are here to welcome you with the warm and friendly hospitality that Newfoundlanders are known for. Come join us for dinner!

We found the food at the Little Sparo to be outstanding. While the dishes may appear simple and straightforward, the are all executed flawlessly and many have the tiniest hint of something different that make them so interesting. We started with an order of bread and the arugula salad, both delicious. We then shared the bucatini, the lamb pasta, and the shrimp side. We enjoyed them all and the lamb was a standout dish. We finished our meal with the amaretto tarte and sorbet. The only drawback to our dining experience is that the restaurant’s ambience does not match the quality and creativity of the food. We will absolutely return to dine again.

The food was amazing the it was best pizza and pasta I ever had. The food left you wanting more it was so good. I cannot wait to try again. The only complaint I have is the lighting it was really bright. We went at night if the lights were dimmed a little it would be more relaxing.
