Spirito's Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Staff was attentive upon arrival, sat us at a high top in a corner and offered to move us once they saw how crowded we were. Waitress was quick to bring water and take drink orders, offered lemons never arrived, we ordered a bottle of sparkling water, glasses were never provided, when water ran out there was never a refill despite asking twice. Fried mozzarella appetizer was much to heavily breaded, most of what was ordered sat uneaten on the plate. A sausage pizza was ordered, came as sausage and mushroom (my husband didn’t specify no mushrooms, his fault). They took the pizza back and made a sausage only pizza, by the time it was ready we were finished eating so he had it boxed to take home, they charged us in full for both pizzas. At conclusion of the meal the waitress took our card and took 15 minutes to return with our card/receipt. Everyone was very friendly, the food was disappointing.
My husband and I used to eat here frequently. A couple times a month, normally spending $150+ each time we visited.
I previously left a 5-star review. Today I'm changing it to 1-star and we will NEVER return again.
We ate here a couple nights ago. When my credit card bill came in the restaurant had charged me more than I had signed for. I also left a 20% tip which I routinely do. The overcharge was only $10 but it's the principle.
I called the restaurant WELL BEFORE lunch service and asked to speak with Greg, the owner. I was told he was in the kitchen and too busy to speak with me. I explained the situation to the lady who answered the phone and asked for a callback.
12 hours later NO CALL. I called my credit card company and they fixed the problem for me. I then called back asking for Greg again only to be told again that he was too busy to speak with me.
He called me the next day and was rude and insulting. He stated that "24 hours is plenty good enough for a business callback." If this man has that kind of disregard for his customers and their finances then what else is Spirito's disregarding.
This was a disgusting example of ZERO customer service skills or customer care.
I'll take my dining experiences to a business that cares about its customers!
We had reservations. They gave us a high table which was very small and uncomfortable.
Our waitress was terrible. It took her one hour and forty minutes to bring our dinner. There were two table next to us with a total of 6 people(four and two). They both were seated after us. Both tables had finished their food before ours was served.
Our waitress was very inattentive and most of the time she was no where to be found. Food was ok. Service was beyond terrible. The ratings do not allow for anything less than one star but ZERO is the real rating.
I have been there many times but will not be going back.
I've been here before, and was very pleased. Perhaps because it was at the holidays, but was disappointed because it was a special lunch and the reservations were made well in advance.
The table was right behind a door and was too small for four diners. The waiter was very new. No bread was offered, even with soup, but there was no room on the table for it anyway. Worst part, the menu states that soup or salad AND vegetable or pasta comes with an entree.
However, we were told firmly that we could only have one choice, not two, and we were reading it incorrectly. The menu should be corrected if that's the case. The food was very good, on the plus side.
This was our second visit to Spiritos. We were meeting friends on Saturday night. Place was very busy. Our second visit was not as good as our first. I think because they were very busy they were somewhat scrambling and the quality of the meal suffered. The quahogs I ordered as an appetizer were lukewarm at best. I should have sent them back but we all got talking and I didn't want to wait. My entrée, chicken masala, was tasty but again not really as warm as I would have liked. My wife got veal and when we got home she had the same complaint, cold food. The Rabi that came with the sole that the other couple ordered came out late because they forgot to put in the order. I don't think I would recommend this restaurant to others or go back anytime soon. I prefer a restaurant that is consistent.
The evening with friends was so perfect at Spirito's! We love the dinner special they offer on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights. Included was a cantina of red or white wine, delicious bread, soup or salad, a selection of several entrees, and a choice of desserts. Our party of four were so satisfied with the veal parmigiana as well as the eggplant parmigiana. The caramel gelato we each chose was a small portion but very delicious.
Italian food at its best! Amazing pasta bolognese ! Studded squash flowers are a seasonal delight. The snail salad was not only fresh but prepared perfectly. If you are looking for authentic Italian food with specialty dishes to explore.....Spiritos is the place. Check out the website for Sunday specials including brunch. You will never be disappointed.
Food, service, and dinner for two meal was great. The veal was outstanding as well as the eggplant. Our friends were disappointed that the bottle of wine formerly included in the special was changed to a cantina or pitcher of wine. It was great to be able to take home a little wine if we could not finish our bottle.
What a disappointment. I was truly looking forward to a new Italian dining experience in a neighborhood I had not sought out before. No part of the evening merits positive ratings. The greeting was perfunctory, the dining room we were directed to was empty so we sat alone at a window. The service was glacially slow and amateurish would be a kind adjective. Every time we needed something we had to find our server. The food was perhaps one level above school cafeteria quality, although the prices would suggest rather high quality. I will definitely not return. There are too many wonderful restaurants in the Providence area to make this choice.
This is an old-style Italian-American place - the site of the Providence Italo-American club, in fact. Nice ambiance in an old house. Huge portions of classic Italo-American fare: veal parmigiana, fried mozzarella. The linguine that accompanied the meal were overcooked, so I would recommend staying clear of their pasta - which is a shame, since that is obviously a big part of their menu.
Service was awful they forgot to place the entree hour later waitress insincere starts it will be a little longer when questioned she gives my wife dirty look and leaves. The manager was top notch and took care of it but left hungry
Toni waited on us Saturday night and did amazing job, We were totally satisfied by our service . Only problem was that my wife's food came out cold.The restaurant was not busy at this time. Toni did take care of the problem. Having cold food is not enjoyable for us. I'm not sure if I will return to this restaurant.
We took a chance on Spirito's for a nice dinner with my mom while she was in town, and we took our toddler along. We were helped graciously to entertain my kid and we didn't have to wait too long for our food even though it was 7:30pm on a Friday night. The interior architecture is very old style fancy and I love that sort of thing. I was happy to be able to feel comfortable with my kid there. We all had a great time, and the cocktails were generous. More pricey so try to use it for a special occasion!
My husband and I brought another couple to Spirito's Restaurant for a birthday dinner. We were pleasantly surprised to find out it was Restaurant Week. Dinner for 2 selections were impressive and delicious! Service was excellent! Prices very reasonable. What a wonderful evening we had!!!!!
Very happy with our dining experience.
Once the handicap ramp was found, our friend entered the restaurant (with walker)
Food was great, waitress very informative, friendly and professional.
Was a little surprised to see hostess in jeans and casual top.
We dined here recently during restaurant week. They had a 2 for 1 deal. 2 meals for 34.95. It included soup or salad, entree and dessert. I got the scrod with potato and summer squash. The clear chowder was good,as was my meal. My husband got chicken parm,which was cold. The waitress apologized and had it heated. It was good once it was hot! Dessert was ice cream or bread pudding. The building is an old house? Very nice and has a parking lot,which is great. Overall food was good, not great,but for the price,a good deal.
A blast from the past when Italian-American cuisine was eggplant parmigiana and chicken Milanese. In a restored Victorian,the meal included a side salad or soup, and pasta with red sauce. The waiter was attentive and kind. And we found a great red wine. Our guests enjoyed the experience.
For me , the meal represented old school Italo- american food. Safe, but less focused on premium ingredients than I would have wished.
Our chicken parm was delicious. Our outdoor seating was great our waitress arianna was really patient and very helpful. I was with a friend that I haven't seen in 6 months and we were not rushed at all. It wasn't very busy as it was mid afternoon. Their sauce (gravy as we say in Rhode Island) is soo tasty. The only drawback was that even though the lunch menu stated we could have soup or salad AND pasta - that wasn't the case. Either or. It was still a good deal for 12.95.
