Was a long wait for our table despite reservations. Very small inside and I assume this is why the wait for our table. Needs way more lighting. I love a cozy, low light atmosphere but this was ridiculous. Ordered garlic soup, which was delicious. Really...More

The small restaurant with about 10 tables has recently made some renovations, including making it look brighter while maintaining the cozy atmosphere. It is a great improvement. The service, by the owner I believe, is excellent. The food never fails to impress.

After reading the reviews about this restaurant - wanted to try it out. The bread was great, service was great, but the sauces on the pasta not so great. Disappointing as this was a birthday dinner.

For my birthday weekend, I wanted a great Italian but knew there was no way to get reservations for a big party on short notice. But, take out from La Spaghett was the perfect answer.

Went to the restaurant to celebrate a birthday based on the reviews here. While the food was good, the tables being too close together and this causing a loud atmosphere spoiled the evening for us. Won’t be back.

No... If you mean are they licensed, then yes and could potentially ask to see ID if they suspected people ordering alcohol were under 19.

No, but you would feel out of place if you went in after leaving the beach in shorts and top. No ties needed, no suits either. But this is a place people go on date night and to celebrate so most people are dressed... More
