The patio offers a great place for people-watching. It is directly across the street from the main Fort Lauderdale beach. Seared tuna salad was excellent.

Aside from a slight wait for our meals, the experience was excellent. One of our party has some serious food allergies. The chef cane out to speak with her to go over what and how they could prepare her a meal that avoided her allergies. He was most accommodating. Our meals, according to everyone, were wonderful. My wife and I had the carrot soup that was creamy and delicious.

I had what was described as a new menu item, a snapper filet, that was the best dapper I’ve ever eaten. Plenty to eat, great texture and flavor. It came with an interesting array of vegetable. One of our party had little neck clams and a lobster pasta that he enjoyed. Give it a try. We went on a Sunday night. Saturday had a long wait if you had no reservation.

Whenever we come to Fort Lauderdale, our first stop is Spazio. My husband loves their spaghetti, I mean he is a serious fan so we always go before checking into our hotel even. This time however, the experience was not the best. Ordered a drink that didn’t taste well. And long story short, ordered a virgin version of it and was charged the full price for it.
That was displeasing and it took some time for the bill to get adjusted.

Nevertheless, the food is good. And classic place to experience the beech and people watch.

Excellent food and wait staff. Poor Management Decisions: All was great. Fast moving waiter dropped a beer glass that shattered on our table and drenched me and wife with beer that was intended for another table. An accident, we helped them clean up the glass chards off table and sat their soaked. Bill comes and nothing was deducted nor offered. When we asked, they deducted $13 off of a $276 bill! Me and me wife sat soaked in beer, and we were not drinking it, glass off and around our kids meal, and that was management’s judgement at work. We took the discount and handed it to the poor waiter who dropped the beer. She felt awful, bit that helped. We were not trying to benefit from an accident, but were struck by managements lack of concern and empathy for their customers and staff.

We dined here for my bachelorette party and I’m so glad that we did! There was a little confusion with our reservation, but they fixed us up with a big table right away. We had a huge party of 13 people and the service was outstanding. Our drinks and meals were great as well. We loved the ambiance of the restaurant and the live music was awesome! Would definitely come back!

We sat outside to listen to the live entertainment. The food ordered at our table was really good. We had steak, lobster ravioli, salmon and another pasta dish. Everyone was pleased with the food. I thought the prices are a little high for what you get. A $25+ meal should have a salad with it.

Family dinner for #15. Spazio was very accommodating for our party and the service was very good - even with our large group (and 7 kids). The food was very good and plentiful - plenty to share. The guitarist and flamenco dancer were truly amazing. A true highlight of our trip to Fort Lauderdale! We will return. :-)

I didn't score the Noise Level because the scoring doesn't make sense. If "Energetic" means too loud for conversation without screaming, then yes - it's energetic. If you're sitting outside, the music is too loud to have a conversation. The music was great, but I want to talk to the people I'm with. The night had a little chill, so the heat lamps were nice.

Good size portions and food was good. The Ceviche is good but they need to include more chips or crackers to eat it with. I ordered the Filet Mignon which as a good size and tasty. I ordered the steak cooked medium and it came well done. Didn't want to wait for another steak so I didn't send it back. The steak would have been great had it not been overcooked. Otherwise, it was a good experience and would eat here again.

Food was nothing to write home about and the price was outrageous for the quality you got.
Our Server was very friendly and nice. Watch your Bill because they do add a Service Charge.
Good spot to watch a game or do a bit of people watching on the Strip but much better place to go to eat for less money
