    DO NOT EAT HERE. IF YOU WANT A FUN PLACE TO DRINK THIS IS A GREAT SPOT. Food is terrible, both my fiance and I were sick after we ate the Veal. The food is terrible. The atomsphere, live music and location is excellent and a fun place to hang out and have a drink but again do not eat the food! If you do make sure you have lots of imodium near by!

    It was extremely loud when we went. They were blasting music at the same time as having live music playing, which didn’t make sense. Also, the noise from cars passing by was pretty loud. However, the food was good and portions were big. I would only recommend going to this place on a weekday when it is much quieter.

    Food was microwaved hot not fresh hot. Pasta sauce was dry almost as dry as the chicken. Little to no explanation of the menu items which I now understand why, because it is would be nearly impossible to recommend anything on the menu. They solicit photos that they take of you while we were still eating. A touch strange for me. And do not get me started on the service fee. It does not protect employees waiters/ waitresses it actually lowers the standard because they may feel they will get a tip either way and that is if the money goes to them.

    A friend and I came here for a birthday dinner! The service was amazing and the food was delicious. We had the burrata appetizer, followed by the primavera pizza and gnocchi alla vodka. We both were very happy with the choices. There was also live music which was an added plus! Would definitely recommend dining here.

    Good food, horrible service. Cocktail sat built on bar for 12 minutes before being served. Server seemed more interested in surroundings then customers. Band was way to loud. Surprise 12% service charge was automatically added to total which explains servers nonchalant attitude. It was a Sunday night, parking was aggregating, every lot was full, drove in circles for 20 minutes before getting lucky, take Uber. We were from out of town and expected a quite Italian restaurant based on pic’s turned out to be in the middle of a raucous party district… a spring breaker haven.

    I was careful to go at a time there was no live show. Even so, there's a DJ that plays music WAY too loud. Impossible to have a conversation while having lunch. Next time I will look for other venues.

    It’s a nice place to eat at and next to the beach, very convenient. Food was good, wanted breakfast but they only serve that until 1130am, that was our only disappointment! Had I known I would have reserved earlier or somewhere else 🥴. The food we ate was delicious none the less and the key lime martini was so yummy!!

    Service was pretty good. Negative there were 4 of us but somehow the waiter rang up an extra meal that then stayed on our bill / had to ask to remove. There was an unmentioned 15% service charge on the bill that we had to ask about / this is an auto gratuity apparently. I almost gave him a $70 tip (20% $40 + the $30 already in place) on a $200 bill until I noticed it and we asked so I could adjust. There should be some notification to patrons rather than hoping they won’t notice. The key lime pie martini was really good. Meatball appetizer was good. Sandwiches/ food were good. Dining overlooking the beach is nice. Overall recommend, just think others should be aware of this auto gratuity.

    Great food, great service but experience less than enjoyable. Like eating in a jukebox. Strictly for twenty something’s that only want to get drunk. If the place wants to be a restaurant, which it easily could, tone down the noise. If it wants to be a bar, it should only sell bar food.

    The hostess was super rude to us when we checked in. Our server maybe checked in us twice. We would have gotten way more alcohol drinks and dessert but the service was so poor we decided to leave. After stopping by the last time, our server was done with us and someone else had to check us out.

    We had very pleasant and helpful servers, the food was good but not great. The ambiance is sort of like a warehouse and the general the feeling a bit industrial and dingy. The volume level of the music was deafening (and I like loud music) at the front of the room and only just a bit lower at the back. That maybe OK for a bar or a club but shouting to be heard across a restaurant table does not work for me. I would not go back.

    My husband and I have gone to Spazio for his birthday dinner. Our server was Mr. Vlad. He was absolutely great and very helpful. We ordered vegetarian pasta and pizza. Food was very fresh and good. The only downside is too loud music it would be nice if music was not too loud.
