My son and I went here recently for his 18th birthday. It was great. My son started with the spiedini for his appetizer. He loved it. It was delicious. I started with the octopus carpaccio. It was fantastic, tasted just as good or better than a similar dish I had on the Amalfi coast last summer in Italy. For his... More

Went here for a family birthday dinner. Really great Italian food. Great service. Lots of room. Much bigger then it looks from the front. Maybe a little pricier than most Italian places but not significantly. Plenty of on street parking in front & a lot next store. Highly recommend.

A group of nine folks looking to get away from the convention center, one in the group knew someone who had eaten here. We received good advice! Menu was diverse and had many interesting choices. The service was impeccable our server was not obtrusive but rather seemed to slip in and out refilling and dropping off as well as checking... More

We reserved a meeting room in this restaurant for a business dinner. Service was very attentive, and everyone enjoyed their meal. Drinks were served promptly, selection was good, and the meal and dessert were excellent.

Great food, great service and the price is right. We all had something different - pasta, fish, veal and everyone enjoyed every bit of it. The deserts were another reason to be there. Outstanding. The service is excellent in that they met all our needs without anyone coming over to our table every 15 minutes. They didn't ask us how... More

Service was fine, the rest was distinctly mediocre. The restaurant is very loud and we were really packed in (only one way around our table, which was impassable if anyone along the route was being served). The caesar salad was boring, croutons looked like they came out of a bag, some of the lettuce was slightly brown, too much shaved... More

We walked from our Hotel to Spasso in Old Town. It was a small, intimate, casual restaurant. The food was marvelous. We each had one of the nightly specials and were both very please. The wine was nice and the service was also good. I would love to return for another meal.

We had very good, friendly servers that were helpful choosing a dinner entree. Everyone in our group seemed to be very pleased with the dinner they had ordered. Drinks were served quickly and ice water was supplied plentifully and refreshed quickly by the wait staff. I have no idea what the grilled pepper/mushroom sauce for bread (dipping) was called but...
