Very nice neighborhood Italian restaurant. Solid preparations, ample portions and great service. Especially like the calamari with beans and artichokes, eggplant parm and seafood linguini. There is always a special, too. Good wine list. Could improve the beer selection.
Nice dessert list. On a street with at least 3 other Italian restaurants, we like Spasso.

Spasso is dependable and accessible. We love its convenient location in our own city and the fact that we can get in at the last minute. The food is always good. It's an unpretentious and approachable restaurant. Great bar service and excellent wine choices too!

Spasso is our go to Italian restaurant in San Carlos! The food is consistently good as is the service. On a nice day or evening, you can choose to sit outside. They have fresh, delicious salads, appetizer plates, and entrees. If you want a good casual spot for everyday dining or for a special occasion, Spasso is your spot!

Had a 7pm reservation. Did not get seated until 7:30 with no apology. Took about 20 minutes to get a drink at the table and we did not get food until about 8:15. Food quality was fair to good, but definitely not worth the poor service.

Still one of our favorite Italian restaurants. Pretty crowded and noisy on weekend nights. The food is almost always top notch, though this time the veggies were a bit over-cooked. The wine list can be hit and miss, with few recognizable labels, but we enjoyed a cab blend that was recommended.

Great place. We like a lot, but the parking in downtown San Carlos is not very good.

Food was just not good. Appetizer plate was just a fried mess and my salmon was very over cooked.

We both had the warm cabbage salads, one with chicken and one with skirt steak. The steak was very tough this time, not able to chew it! They took the added steak charge off the bill, so, all was good.

Should have known better than to go on a Saturday night! Even though we had reservations, we still waited an extra 30 minutes for our table. They were apologetic and even topped off our wine. It was quite busy and therefore also quite noisy. Overall the food was good as was the company!!

Very attentive service, great selection of food and wine. We got there before the dinner rush and it was very nice. Once the dinner rush began it got rather loud due to the small intimate size of the restaurant. That was a downside and the sever seemed a bit quick which was a little off putting. Very slight dislike, otherwise a perfect experience and delicious food. Can't wait to go back again
