    Spasso: Good food, good service

    by acemj Written Jan 22, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Address: 34 South Front St

    Directions: Between Arch and Market on Front (closer to Market).

    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.

    Address: Front St (off Chestnut)

    Spasso: Fairly Good Italian

    by TRimer Updated Jul 11, 2005

    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.
