Italian
Spindini is a Memphis’ favorite Italian restaurant. We concentrate on traditional Italian food prepared with a modern twist. You’ll also see that the menu denotes dishes cooked in the wood-burning oven, made with organically-grown produce harvested at Cherry Blend Farms, a company owned farm, or made with honey from Spindini’s own bee hives.

The menu was extremely limited as well as drink selection. The drinks we did ordered which were a glass of red wine and old fashion were poor at best. Calamari was overcooked as was our other appetizer. We were so disappointed we decided to leave and go somewhere else.

The restaurant was closed and we got no communication. The app allowed us to make the reservation and we drove downtown only to find the place dark. Please fix this.

Loved the fact that we were seated right away!Only thing is we were in the back near the stove. It was very busy that evening, so our waitress wasn't real attentive. I would definitely go back just get there alot sooner, possibly around 5 or 6 just so we can beat the crowd.

Food and wine were excellent, as always. We love this restaurant and that's why we made reservations for Valentine's Day. However, we were disappointed and slightly offended by our server. It was obvious for the moment we sat down that he wanted to get us out of there as quickly as possible. He told us he wasn't quite ready for us yet and didn't expect to have a table yet. We were five minutes early and the hostess sat us. We would've been happy to wait. Furthermore, he told us that he has never had anyone take so long to order a bottle of wine. Since it was Valentine's Day, we wanted to order a more expensive bottle of wine so we were discussing the options. Oh, and did I mention that we took less than 5 minutes to order the wine??!! Rude!

This was a big disappointment. The roasted fish was very dry and not at all flavorful. The veal saltimbocca was extremely salty. Desserts were unremarkable. The restaurant has a good energy and amibience, but can't recommend the food especially given this is supposed to be high-end cuisine.

I took my brother out to spindini because I had been raving about it. I expected the food to taste as good as it always does. Somehow it was just ok. My chicken parmiagano was dry and his salad was withered. I know all days can't be perfect. I will give it another try because I love this place. Server also seemed like he was rushing us. I just didn't have a fabulous time this time

Spindini is a lovely restuarant,fresh and exciting. However, the ambience does not make up for their servers with attitude, overpriced winelist,and food that was mostly unremarkable.After two visits, we have decided that it is money not well spent.

Being from St. Louis, having eaten in places such as Charlie Gitto's, Kemol's, Giovanni's etc.. etc.. I've become accustomed to really good Itallian food. Spindini try as it might, is not "really good Italian" Its okay, its a fun place if your young, and perhaps wanting a few drinks... However, being with my wife for what was supposed to be a nice dinner, Spindini disapointed. but the atmosphere is a little loud. They play heavy metal music very loud.. Other than that, the atmosphere was somewhat cheap. The building itself is a mustly old space... long and narrow and painted poorly and cheap decour. My salad was soaked in dressing, the toasted raviolli was okay, and my chickin parmasean was good, but not a very big serving.

The smoked chicken fettucine had a moderate amount of very dry slices of chicken breast. It would have been a good dish had the meat been moist. This was in spite of a fairly heavy white sauce. The Italian spinach lacked taste and seemed like undercooked frozen variety spinach. The salad was drowned in dressing making it too heavy as well as messy. Overall a very disappointing meal. Next time if I dine there I will stick with the pizza.

We came for a pre-Orpheum dinner, had individual salads and shared a Roman pizza. My husband had a cocktail and I had a glass of Riesling. Food and drinks were delicious but my husband wished they had more choices of dressing for his wedge salad. I liked the caprese salad and couldn't eat all of it. We brought two slices of pizza home to enjoy later. The server was attentive and made sure we had time to get to the show. We enjoyed it and will go back.

Food was great and the service was outstanding! Only thing that was confusing is there is no hostess area when you walk in, which makes you wonder if you came in the right entrance. You could make this a nice dinner out or a way to celebrate. We were there to celebrate and it was well with it.

Our service was sloooooow. We had to flag down a server to start and then he acted like we were inconveniencing him when we ordered. We were also not offered the soup as part of the downtown dining menu, even though it was listed online. When I asked about it, our server said our only choice was a salad and there was no explanation as to why (that it sold out, didn't make it that day, etc.) The food was good, though.
