We were there for Valentines Day. Food was ok but ordinary. Very overpriced - I don't see a reason to go back.
I went with a few friends to a gals lunch out on a Tuesday at Spalti.
The place is pretty with mottled walls and great art prints. We loved the menu which had many options. One gal had special food needs and they made a pasta dish to her specs, while two of us had salads with beautifully grilled warm salmon in top. I chose arugula and the other gal spinach. We could have chosen chicken, shrimp or other toppers. The service was attentive and accommodating, and the prices are typical for the area. There are several restaurants on the street, but folks who look past Spalti are missing a nice experience. For larger groups they even have a private banquet room
Great food, lovely Italian atmosphere. Bread is warm and wonderful, wine list is approachable and well priced and the food always delights.
Friendly servers. Fantastic flavors and good portions. I had a heaping pile of empty clam shells from my linguine con vongole and still had just as many in my plate, un-eaten. I only left them behind because I was more than satisfied. Lovely home-made pasta.
Our latest visit to Spalti featured the same fine Italian food, good service, and reasonable wine prices that we have come to love in the last few years. Sure, it doesn't have the buzz of some other places, but it's nice to have something reliable that has become our local go-to restaurant.
Our 4th year for a holiday dinner with a large group (8 or more). Great food, nice setting, easy parking, all around nice experience.
Excellent all around. Food is delicious, drinks are plentiful and offer lots of variety, many vegetarian options which makes me happy, and the service is excellent. I've never been disappointed at Spalti.
Delicious food, great service. I would highly recommend.
The food was delicious . The staff were exceptional, very welcoming and attentive. A wonderful dining experience.
I was thrilled to find the lobster ravioli returned to the menu. It appears that the opening of La Boheme a few doors down is having a negative impact on Spalti's patronage, which is a shame. It is a great dining spot and deserves support. I have been a faithful customer for over 16 years.
Nice place; good food. Interesting to watch those who pass by.
We had soups, salads, and main courses. Timing of service was good.
We went very early on a Friday and that was a cool thing to do. Had the place to ourselves.
Food was OK. Portions were small. Wine was old.... I probably should have sent the bottle back.
We have lived in Palo Alto for over 20 years and this was out first visit to Spalti. We were surprised that it was not more crowded on a Saturday night especially when Open Table did not have a reservation available for the time we wanted.
The food was very good and everyone in my party (4) would go back again.
Fish order had to be sent back because it was too salty and vegatables were cold. It took a very long time until another plate was delivered and was satisfactory . An order of capellini with pesto was absolutely tasteless. There was NO garlic in the pesto! First time ever no garlic in an Italian dish!!!
No one was there at 5:30 and only a couple when we left at 7:30. Hopefully they do better at lunch.
