We dined on a Tuesday and took advantage of their special offer of $40 pp for three courses and a bottle of wine to share between the two of us. Food was delicious, portions generous, and wait staff worked well as a team on a busy night.

Really enjoyed the authentic food at Spasso. Short Rib papparadelle was incredible! I sampled my daughter’s gnocchi Bolognese and my husbands Chicken Parm and they were delectable! Great service.

I had reservations with 4 friends to celebrate my birthday. The food was very good and our waiter was attentive and funny. This was my first time at Spasso and I will definitely return. The ravioli was amazing. I was too full for dessert.

From the friendly, accommodating staff to the aromas coming from the kitchen you know you are in for a wonderful evening! The staff execute their responsibilities efficiently and quietly. Knowledgeable about their wine as well! The aroma coming from the kitchen does not disappoint when your food arrives! Meatball and calamari appetizers were excellent followed by the main course which was over the top exceptional! Very nice choice of desserts and wines! Will definitely return!

I ordered linguine with clams in white sauce and arugula salad. The salad was so salty I left some on my plate. When I mixed in the sautéed pepper,onion, and eggplant plate that was given to us when we sat down, the salad was more palatable. That plate of veggies was delicious. The homemade linguine was thick and chewy, and the white sauce was very sandy. The clams were good but also sandy.
My husband’s pasta Ponzi was good.
We brought a relative to Spasso a few weeks ago and the arugula salads were even saltier, bu our entrees, sausage w broccoli rab, were delicious.
There are other Italian restaurants nearby that are more consistent in my opinion.

I love Italian cuisine, but it is often hard to find a place that really delivers the flavor and service of Italian culture. My go-to appetizer is fried calamari and it was perfect. Not too salty and not under cooked. The mussels were amazing! I love the sauce they prepared it with; Packed with flavor but also not too salty. The drinks came out quickly for a Saturday night at 7:15pm. The main dishes were good as well. Overall I was very happy with the experience and would consider visiting again.

Nothing special here. Sauces are average and pasta was raw. Chairs are extremely uncomfortable. No one ever came by the table to check on us other than waiter who was great. Eggplant was soggy and bland.

Very disappointed. Maybe they just had a bad night?

We went to Spasso for our 26th wedding anniversary on a Wednesday evening. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. Right away the waiter suggested the special offer for Wednesday which turned out to be a great value and came with a bottle of wine! Food was excellent! Definitely planning a return trip.

This was out anniversary dinner. I’ve eaten there many times on business trips, but my wife had never been there. It was the prefect choice. Our food was excellent. The wine was great and reasonable. Our server was wonderful - available, but not hovering over us. If I’m in Philly, I’ll be at Spasso.
