Late Saturday night family dinner. The waitress was great and allowed my daughter to order a meal which was not on the menu, great personal touch. The food tasted great and you could tell the meal was "homemade". Small dining room gave you a family...More

Spasso is a very cute and casual Italian restaurant located where Seaward ends at the beach. The service is exceptional! They were very attentive and friendly. We had the lemon and caper chicken (very good!) and the pork chops (would probably not order again). The...More

The best tables are around the perimeter, we had to sit out in the middle of the room which is not desireable. The food was no value. We had pasta that was supposed to be meat sauce...could hardly find the meat.

We have frequented Spasso a number of times in the past few weeks, including takeout, eating in and spending time sipping coffee in their adjoining cafe. To start with the cafe, delicious cappuccinos, welcoming service and the possibility of ordering light fare made it a...More

Food was above average; the pesto was too much, but we did enjoy the bruschetta and the atmosphere. Would go back again to try something new!

This place has great reviews, and we've only been once. Service was good. Bread was good. Cabernet was cheap and sweet. Bolognese was good. Bruschetta was awful. Someone just chopped up cold stale bread and put a spoonful of stuff and called it bruschetta. Bread...More
