Spasso Tips (3)

Spasso: Good food, good service

I like this place a lot. The owners are really friendly and because my sister and her husband are regulars, I always get really good service. There is a lounge/bar on one end and a larger dining area on the other. The walls are brick and the interior is simple; not exactly upscale, but very nice. It's the type of place that could work for a business dinner, a romantic date or a casual dinner with friends.

Favorite Dish Last time I was there, I had the fish special, which was a branzino and was fantastic. See the website for a complete menu.
Most of the dinner menu entrees are somewhere between $12-20.

Spasso: Olde City mid-priced Italian

Nice atomosphere. Open ktichen. Bar is quiet and cozy. Decent wine selection. Outdoor seating available during the warmer months. Private dining area available for large groups.

Favorite Dish Mussels and Gnocchi are delicious! Mussels are in a white wine sauce but they toss in a few tomatoes to make it different and even tastier!

Gnocchi is homemade and in a gorgonzola sauce.

Spasso: Fairly Good Italian

We visited this restaurant last August in the middle of a rain storm on a Saturday night. We had no reservation and their was no problem getting a table.

Favorite Dish The restaurant specializes in both Northern and Southern dishes. Great big pasta dishes. Menu items vary from old school classics such as veal Parmigiana and shrimp fra diavolo to neo-sophisticates such as silky escargot in a thick, tasty tomato broth. Don’t miss Chef Roberto Medina’s renowned grilled calamari. For dessert try the cheesecake, spumoni, tartufo or lemon profiteroles.
