Best grilled calamari
Friday night special of pasta with scallops is outstanding
Caesar salad was so fresh and delicious
Love the marinated veggies to put on bread in beginning of meal
The location of the restaurant is terrific in that paid parking is never an issue so ... you don't arrive in an agitated state 😀. The service is always gracious, friendly and efficient. They are always willing to make the dishes however you'd like them and everything tastes wonderful. My only disappointment this time was the price. The meal for 5 of us, with tip, was over $400. Yes, we each had 1-2 glasses wine and shared a large appetizer but ... It seemed that the prices had increased rather dramatically since we had been there one month earlier.
My wife ordered seafood with pasta, I had gnocchi with broccoli rabe.
My wife complained that her meal left a bad taste in her mouth - she nibbled, but ate litte. My gnocchi was very good - I couldn't finish it, and took the rest home with me - but the broccoli rabe was overcooked and tasteless. I took a few bites and left it.
I wish I had asked for my money back for my wife's meal and my side dish. We arrived at 9:30p, after a movie; I had the distinct feeling they were serving us the dregs.
Our meal and drinks were delicious and our waiter was excellent. We were not happy with the hostess seating us.
First time visiting and we would definitely go back. Meal was great as well as the service.
Excellent for a Valentine's Day destination. The calamari was excellent and the cannoli dessert is incredibly delicious
Excellent service for a Valentine's Day evening. Our server was attentive, careful, and engaging. He managed to be both unobtrusive and constantly present, which was great. The meal, as usual, was well-crafted and hot when it arrived. I'm a huge fan of Spasso's mix of peppers, the careful seasoning, and the quality of bread (two servings was more than an appropriate appetizer in advance of our meal). My spinach ravioli was incredible. Great overall experience.
First time there and everything went great the food was very very good
Food was very good, and the team was quite polite!
The food at Spasso is extremely good. They are unable to accommodate separate checks for business people.
Food was amazing... I had the fried calamari as my appetizer very good. salmon for entree awesome dish!!!
Spasso is a classic, well-established neighborhood eatery. There is no need for pretense and no need to hype some trendy new food preparation technique. The menu is anchored by homemade pastas whose freshness comes through the simple, authentic and flavorful sauces. Whole fish are perfectly prepared as is all the seafood. The veal is fresh. The wine list is not enormous but there are a good cross-section of vintages listed. The price points for most bottles are fair and moderately priced. There are a few more expensive reserve wines. We are not huge fans of the desserts offered at typical Italian restaurants in America but the tartufo at Spasso is spot on. Service is friendly and attentive.
A wonderful place for lunch! There was a large menu, great food with large portions and reasonable prices. Service was attentive.
Birthday. Great food and they even had a candle for our dessert and sang!
This is our 3rd time having dinner. It was great as always. Service was great.
Spasso NEVER disappoints! We usually dine at the Media location and this was our first time at the Philadelphia location. We brought some family from out of town and some family that just moved to the area. Everyone's food was delicious and the family that just moved here said they would love to try the special dinners on Tuesday nights! Highly recommend to anyone!
The restaurant itself is very small. The tables are close and the noise level is high. The servers weren’t overly friendly or helpful, they pretty much did their jobs without exchanging pleasantries.
I ordered chicken parmigiana which was so deep fried it was crunchy. It also had a lot of fat. It came with a side of spaghetti and not much tomato sauce. I had to ask for extra.
My husband ordered a special which was pasta with scallops and crab meat in a blush sauce. His was very good. They served bread on the table with a small plate of some kind of roasted peppers or something similar. No one explain to us what that was but it was tasty.
The meal was ok but I wouldn’t rush back there.
Really good food for a reasonable price. Six o’clock seating is perfect before the restaurant gets crowded. Also, a good spot to meet friends in the bar for a few drinks.
