Great food, great staff
Food came out fast (I was there on Valentine’s Day though and the kitchen did end up getting overwhelmed and there was a huge wait, not typical for them though)

This was our 4th visit to Spassso and as usual they did not disappoint. We were seated immediately upon arrival. Our waiter - Spiro (?) was attentive and professional. The food was delicious. We choose the "Dinner Madness" deal this visit - 3 course dinner for $35 per person. You get choice of menu for an appetizer, dinner and dessert and a complimentary bottle of house wine for every 2 dinners. Dinner was enjoyable as always and we are looking forward to our next visit.

We went for the dinner special, 3 courses and a complimentary bottle of wine for $35 per person. Everything we ordered was excellent. I loved the polenta with mushroom appetizer and the veal porcini entree was delicious. We like to have lunch or dinner here when we go to center city. Service is always good.

This is a local favorite. Never disappoints. The pasta dishes are especially great. The only suggestion I would give this restaurant is to expand its wine menu - then it would be near perfect. They do a nice job and highlighting daily specials makes ordering easy

Young woman who checked us in was rude and disrespectful. We asked for a different table because the door opening for customers was making us cold. She told us no, go to another restaurant if we were cold. We remained for dinner but we were disappointed how we were treated.

Top notch food. Grilled calamari is off the charts.
The copanade is also incredible.

Never fail great dinner.

Somehow got a parking ticket across the street at 8pm.

Amazing spot. Exactly what we were looking for. Happy hour during normal hours, none of that 3-5pm crap. Great HH drink and food specials. Can’t go wrong with a dirty martini and some fried rav. Waitress was sweet and attentive. I’ll be back.

Service was very good, servers were personable and attentive. There was a unexpected longer wait for our main course probably due to it being St. Valentine's Day. We certainly will return to this restaurant in the near future.

The surrounding community was terrific. The people of Spasso's where very charming and warm. We enjoyed the luncheon as a whole. My veal was very tough to cut and eat. We will be back again someday. Sincerely, Duane R.

Calamari was very tasty, the short rib pasta and clam linguine were mediocre. All the food came out insanely fast makes me think they just heated it up really quick. Ehhh. May go back again. But not in a rush.

It was a welcome relief to dine in at
Spasso. I was very tired of my own
cooking, almost desperate to get out of the house. My dinner partner was
likewise in need of time out. I ordered
bruschetta which we shared, the big
pork chop dinner went down easily. She enjoyed the veal and tartufo, I
had the tiramisu. She offered a slice
of her choc/vanilla ice cream dessert,
but, while it was calling me I know my
limitations. We had pleasant conversation over wine, she had merlot
I had pino noir. It was a welcome redemption from our incarcerations
and we gabbed on like old pre-Covid days. We are returning customers although it had been awhile- the restaurant was in top form in all categories. A brief respite in the scope
of things. I had many favorites in your
fine restaurant, namely your red snapper with capers, sun dried tomatoes, garlic and seasonings, among other listings still on the menu.
Thank you for the pleasure of renewing old acquaintances:)
