Spasso Italian Grill - Philadelphia
Grilled calamari and arancini excellent. Short rib pappardelle very tasty. Salmon, ravioli, linguini ponza all very good. Tai was a great server with excellent recommendations. Reasonably priced. Would come back.
Bread served cold with a mushy mess of olive/eggplant/pepper. I had to fight to get 6 shrimp off a skewer, came with spinach and side of roasted potatoes. I thought it was the overpriced at $26.50. My husband had the veal saltambuco. He said it was “just ok”.
Bottom line; No intentions of ever going back.
We celebrated our friends birthday and enjoyed the food. We will definitely be going back there in the future
This was our first visit to Spasso and we were very pleased. The service was courteous and professional and the food was delicious. Prices were very reasonable for Philadelphia and comparable to what we are used to in the suburbs.
We are always happy and in a good mood when we leave Spasso Italian Grill, Philly.
Everything was great. The one downside, which was significant to me, was that there were flies. Landing on our food, our silverware, our table. we had to wave them off all through dinner. other than that, we had a wonderful meal.
The food and service were excellent. Highly recommended. My wife and I ordered chicken parmigiana and rigatoni meatballs.
The atmosphere, the food, and the great service we received from Daniel, Maria and the rest of the staff, made for a great evening. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!
Veal and chicken cutlet delicious chocolate mousse cake excellento calamari scrumptious shrimp with garlic spinach tasty service great
Thoroughly enjoyed myself. Will return with my husband.
We happened to reserve during restaurant week and found you could simply order the courses from their regular menu. The server was very accommodating, the restaurant was bustling and the food was fantastic. We (my group) found original italian dishes that we had a tough time choosing from.
Food was excellent and great service
Great place - everything is very good. Been there many times.
You get a lot of food for the price per meal! I went for restaurant week with a friend and after the appetizers we were full!! We had the seafood fra diavolo and the Zuppa Di Pesce. The Zupp Di Pesce was cery flavorful and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys seafood. It was filled with so many different types of seafood. Overall will be back and the food was amazing!
Service was very slow. We got served our appetizers before we even got our drinks. The waitress never really came and checked on us. I actually had to ask the hostess to bring cheese to the table. And when my friends steak was undercooked I had to flag down another waitress to get our waitress to tell her the food was cooked wrong. This was my second time eating here and this time was horrible. I probably would not go back after this dining experience.
Amazing food. Great service
Food and service are always sensational; the new layout is modern, but we miss the front booths. Ah, progress. It seems much more noisy in the front and back rooms with not much on the walls and no soft cushioning of the sound. But, still excellent
The food is always delicious. My eggplant rolantino was so tasty and the linguini with the seafood is delicious. Also the fried calamari is always tender it was an all around great experience. I've been going there for years and it's always great. RW you can pick from the entire menu & that's a plus. I highly recommend it.
We tried spasso for the first time during restaurant week and it was delicious. Excellent service and wonderful portion sizes.
Always a good meal and an enjoyable experience here.,.
I’ve been to both Spasso locations and both were great. This time around I wasn’t as pleased. We went the first day of restaurant week to the Center City location and it wasn’t busy but the waitress wasn’t as attentive at first. I’m sorry but I’m the customer and it wasn’t that busy for the lack of attention. She was having a conversation with the manager and the man anger saw that we needed the waitresses attention but she didn’t stop her conversation (and from what we could tell they could’ve put the conversation on hold). Other than that everything else was ok. Will try another place next time. I also put in the notes that we were celebrating a birthday which they didn’t acknowledge at all. Not pleased this time around and the same staff/management is there as the last time.
Great place with wonderful food and exceptional service!
Food was good and authentic Italian food. Ambience was average and had a "diner" feel . Clearing waiters need to be better trained, and not try to clear the table when people have morsels left on their plates. Clearing of the table seemed a bit rushed (bringing down the ambience).
Tuesday Madness deal was fantastic! 3 course meal and free bottle of wine at a great price. Big portions, so come prepared to eat.
We were seated immediately and the service was excellent. We were a foursome and all of us enjoyed our food. Job well done!
Birthday made special by great food family and then stroll at Penns Landing
Went here for a night out with friends, and was not disappointed. Food was excellent, and service was friendly and prompt.
We went for my birthday. Food and service was excellent. Food was fresh and delicious. They offered to make my kids whatever they wanted. We will be back.
Food and wine were terrific! Crab ravioli was absolutely delicious! The setting was great and the wait staff were top notch, never smothered you but stayed on top of everything. It was a perfect night for my lady and I.
Delicious!!!! Great value. Good service. But most of all.... delicious!!!
Open table reservation was easy. Food was delicious!! & Good amount. Server was wonderful. Really enjoyed the whole experience. We will definitely be back!
The 4 of us in our party all had a different dish, and all agreed that the food was very good. My veal parmissian was a little dry, but good, had to add lots of gravy. And another one in our party complained her homemade spaghetti was too aldente. Somebody else ordered the salad with the gargonzola cheese and said it was overdressed with too much pepper. Otherwise everything else was great, including the deserts, coffee, and the waiter service. Only other complaint was that prices could have been a little more reasonable.
One of my favorites, food is delish. Just wish the service was a little slower. Our reservation was @ 7:30 and we paid our bill at 8:12.
Sat outside. weather was beautiful. The service was excellent and so was our food/drink.
A hidden gem! Best Italian food I had in Philadelphia.
The Tuesday night deal is amazing! - three courses (from the full range of the menu) for $35 plus a free bottle of very drinkable wine per couple.
Delicious!! The antipasto was very good!
Excellent food, beautiful atmosphere, attentive service!!!
From walking in the door and being greeted by a friendly hostess to the double chocolate cake for dessert, our experience was incredible! Our waitress was one of the best I've ever had. Oh! And did I mention the food? It was absolutely top notch delicious! I will be back when I visit Old City!
Awesome food and very cute place. It was pretty loud, we could barely hear each other. Definitely will come back though!
