This is by far the best place for Italian food in the tristate area, and that’s coming from a New Yorker! Food is delicious! So happy we found this gem!

The Clams white appetizer were super salty. The Gnocchi with asparagus
was so oily I could pour it off my plate.

The Burrata appetizer was delicious.

The Veal Parm dinner was dry.

Disappointing

The reservation was set for 8:45, my tire ran flat @ 8:12. I called as was told asing as we. An make it by 9:30 I can still be seated. I arrived after parking nearly outgrowth by 9:12 it's a little drafty. The meal was superb. I cannot wait to try all their selections. The prices are super reasonable and I am looking forward to returning very soon.

We were a half hour early for our reservation and we were seated immediately. Service was excellent. Food was

Highly recommended - Tuesday/Wednesday - special three course meal includes bottle of wine( per couple) , appetizers, dinner and dessert.. I asked for chicken marsala which wasn’t on menu - very good. My wife Ravioli with crabmeat - delicious. Grilled calamari was tender not rubbery. My wife’s gorgonzola salad dressing was a bit vinegary for her taste. Cannoli and Tiramisu great way to end the meal. Look forward to our next visit!

I was very underwhelmed with the food. The short ribs and the meatballs lacked flavor. The fish was good, though. Also, the restaurant was so noisy we couldn’t hear each other. I was really expecting more based on the reviews.

The food was excellent and the service was good. The only issue was the noise level of the restaurant. It was quite noisy and difficult to talk with with the people at our table

Our meal was a little underwhelming and our server was not friendly at all. But it was an athletically pleasing restaurant and their $40-3 course meal on Tuesdays deal was a bonus.

Recent visit to Spasso was a great experience. The food was excellent and the staff attentive. We enjoyed the crab ravioli and the short ribs over pappardelle pasta. The pasta was somewhat undercooked, and very light on sauce. Would definitely return to try some of the other selections.

This restaurant is our favorite. Food and service is excellent. My favorite is the home made Pappardelle with either the porcini mushrooms or the short ribs. My wife loved the Bronzino filet with fusilli. The antipasto is very good.
