We love sitting in the bar for dinner. Brittany is the best! You just can’t lose with the 3 cheese lasagne! Be careful when ordering the wine. We naively ordered a glass of Opus , thinking from the board it was $13. Wrong!!! It was $65 (per glass!!!) 13 was the year!!! Expensive mistake!!!

Very busy evening but our server checked in with us and let us know the kitchen was a bit backed up. She offered us a bread basket and complimentary dessert. Everything was delicious, special sea bass, beet salad, short ribs and mussels. The creme brulee was awesome too!

Busy Valentines Day but ate early. Service started out fine but it was clear the staff was overwhelmed quickly as the restaurant got busier. On a night like this, it should be staffed better.

Food was excellent, we had the sausage vodka ravioli, and chicken mushroom risotto. Several large groups slowed service a bit, but that was understandable and did not distract from the overall experience. One of our local favorites. Very family friendly as well. Definitely worth trying.

We had a very nice time. The meal was good, we each ordered a pasta dish and the food was delicious. Even though there were quite a few tables around us with large parties, the service was quick and attentive. The prices are good, about what you'd pay for meals at other Italian restaurants, but the food here is better.

We booked this reservation for New Years dinner with our son. We walked in and the restaurant was full of smoke - something must have happened in the kitchen - things happen, but I was surprised that the staff didn’t mention anything about it, apologize, etc. we had to wait 15-20 minutes for our table, even though we had a reservation. Once seated, service was slow and relatively inattentive.

We had to wait another 10+ minutes for our cocktail. We ordered two apps - one of which we didn’t eat based on its taste - the server never commented on the fact that it was barely touched when they cleared it.

I had the Braised entree, which I’ve had before, this time it was like a salt lick! It was so salty!!

Overall we were very unimpressed with our entrees, which is unfortunate as we’ve been here numerous times.

Based on this New Years Eve experience, we will not be rushing back to Spasso anytime soon!

My wife and I came here for my birthday. Everything was perfect! They had my favorite beer in tap, we ordered a wonderful appetizer - almond crusted warm brie, we both ordered the walleye which the waiter recommended - it was an excellent choice. We also had a glass of wine and dessert - chocolate cake, which was also fabulous. Al-in-all an outstanding experience. We would definitely come here again. Last year, we went to a much more expensive restaurant in downtown Minneapolis and we were treated much better at Spasso and the food was much better at Spasso also.

Food was good enough, scrambled eggs with white cheddar is delicious, and the waffles are made fresh. However, our waiter was subpar, we had to ask him multiple times to fill our water and coffee. At one point, we had someone else’s waiter ask if we needed anything because our waiter walker right by us. Not the end of the world, and honestly, the waiter was a nice guy. Just kind of annoying after the second or third time of asking. Love dem eggs though!!

We enjoyed dining at Spasso with another couple. We were seated promptly and our waiter was attentive but not intrusive. Happy hour applies throughout the restaurant so we started with discount drinks and a couple great apps. Pizzas and salads were great and we never felt rushed. Great place. Be sure to try the gelato - birthday cake flavor!

The space is nice but their food leaves a lot to be desired. I have never had chicken parmigiana with a combined red sauce and cream sauce. This blend of sauces makes many of their pasta dishes very heavy.
