We went for the dinner special, 3 courses and a complimentary bottle of wine for $35 per person. Everything we ordered was excellent. I loved the polenta with mushroom appetizer and the veal porcini entree was delicious. We like to have lunch or dinner here when we go to center city. Service is always good.

This is a local favorite. Never disappoints. The pasta dishes are especially great. The only suggestion I would give this restaurant is to expand its wine menu - then it would be near perfect. They do a nice job and highlighting daily specials makes ordering easy

Young woman who checked us in was rude and disrespectful. We asked for a different table because the door opening for customers was making us cold. She told us no, go to another restaurant if we were cold. We remained for dinner but we were disappointed how we were treated.

Top notch food. Grilled calamari is off the charts.
The copanade is also incredible.

Never fail great dinner.

Somehow got a parking ticket across the street at 8pm.

Amazing spot. Exactly what we were looking for. Happy hour during normal hours, none of that 3-5pm crap. Great HH drink and food specials. Can’t go wrong with a dirty martini and some fried rav. Waitress was sweet and attentive. I’ll be back.

Service was very good, servers were personable and attentive. There was a unexpected longer wait for our main course probably due to it being St. Valentine's Day. We certainly will return to this restaurant in the near future.

The surrounding community was terrific. The people of Spasso's where very charming and warm. We enjoyed the luncheon as a whole. My veal was very tough to cut and eat. We will be back again someday. Sincerely, Duane R.

Calamari was very tasty, the short rib pasta and clam linguine were mediocre. All the food came out insanely fast makes me think they just heated it up really quick. Ehhh. May go back again. But not in a rush.

It was a welcome relief to dine in at
Spasso. I was very tired of my own
cooking, almost desperate to get out of the house. My dinner partner was
likewise in need of time out. I ordered
bruschetta which we shared, the big
pork chop dinner went down easily. She enjoyed the veal and tartufo, I
had the tiramisu. She offered a slice
of her choc/vanilla ice cream dessert,
but, while it was calling me I know my
limitations. We had pleasant conversation over wine, she had merlot
I had pino noir. It was a welcome redemption from our incarcerations
and we gabbed on like old pre-Covid days. We are returning customers although it had been awhile- the restaurant was in top form in all categories. A brief respite in the scope
of things. I had many favorites in your
fine restaurant, namely your red snapper with capers, sun dried tomatoes, garlic and seasonings, among other listings still on the menu.
Thank you for the pleasure of renewing old acquaintances:)

First time there with a friend and overall ok. I ordered the Veal & Crabmeat. It came out too fast and taste like chicken. I might go back picking a different meal.

I had a delicious piece of fish called be a SA. And all the rest of the food seems fresh. The only thing I noticed but it’s not bad is that the small appetizer they give you in the beginning the egg plant seems to have lost a little bit of a special taste

Me and fiancé went together for a date night. We had outdoor seating because it was a nice night out, and didn't want to be too cooped inside the restaurant. There was nice spacing and all the servers wore masks to adhere to Covid protocols and regulations. We went during restaurant week so we had the opportunity to try a four course meal. I had the mussels for the appetizer, pasta in-between, main course I had veal Parmesan (which I ended up boxing to take home), and for dessert I had a delicious.. creme brûlée. The drinks were really strong! and I left happy. Would definitely go again.
