    Went here for dinner during restaurant week with my girlfriends, every course was DELICIOUS! We had the bruschetta, meatballs, spiedini mozzarella, lobster ravioli, carbonara, linguini and clams and cheesecake and crème brulee for dessert. Would recommend every dish! Small but very cute venue. Drinks were yummy too!

    Don’t expect too much here! Horrible service waited forever for someone to come over and wait on us and took too long in between courses. Calamari was little chewy and not fried dark enough. Eggplant was bland. Short rib pasta and pistachio pasta sounded good but didn’t taste good at all. Prices too high for food of small portions and low quality. Eleven dollars for a glass of white wine that was less than a third of the way full. Best thing there was a bottle of miller lite. Overall not a good experience honestly just wanted to leave as soon as possible. Do not recommend not worth it!

    The Hostess was not very friendly. And it tool a minute before the waitress warmed up. The website had advertised a complimentary bottle of wine with 2 entrees I was surprised when the waitress said they would not honor this because of restaurant week. Little disappointing they could have advertised that on the website or updated it. So all in all kind of disappointing!

    I come back every year doing restaurant week because the food is always good and the service is great! I was a little disappointed they took steak off of the menu for the restaurant week. I suggest that they just charge $10 more and allow people to still have the steak as an option.

    From drinks to desserts, for more than 14 years, we find Spasso Italian Grill has the best Italian food in the City and at reasonable prices! That’s why we keep coming back. YOU know what it’s like when YOU try a new place and leave disappointingly shaking YOUR head? Spasso’s service is attentively consistent, their kitchen creations are always perfectly presented and your taste buds will thank you! Given this successful formula, we don’t hesitate to recommend Spasso to others. The cherry on top is parking, located immediately outside there is an abundance of parking. Meters along Front St & there is an adjacent parking lot. Spasso Italian Grill holds all the aces… on that note: Go For it!

    Food was terrific! I will currently be back to try more menu items. I had the beef short rib pappardelle and chocolate mousse cake. My date had the pasta with crabmeat and shrimp in light tomato sauce and fried calamari, calamari was crisp yet not overcooked and tasted sooo fresh. No complaints at all, just book your date night here

    Our son came in from the west coast and we had a great family get together. We always sit at the bar tables as we like the bartenders and the high top. Daniel and Lauren are so helpful and make all of our dinners, whether just everyday dining or a special occasions, fun and memorable.

    They had tons of options to choose from on their menu, and everything was priced very reasonably. Most of the meals were right around $20, whereas similar entrees at nearby restaurants may be twice as expensive. Delicious!

    The food was great and the server was so nice and he was great about giving recommendations. The only complaint I would have is that towards the end of the night when we wanted the check no one came back out to check on us. We felt that the tables outside didn't get as much attention as the tables inside.
