It may have been because I’d had several incredible restaurant experiences in a row, but I was a little underwhelmed by this place. The service was pleasant, and there was nothing really wrong, but neither was anything wonderful. I had a Caesar salad which was...More

Good service and traditional Italian menu. Serving portions were not too overwhelming which is a plus since it allows room for a gelato dessert. Outdoor seating available and entrees are reasonable priced by Palo Alto standards

Nice spot on California Avenue in Palo Alto. Friendly staff, good food. Service a little slow but nothing to complain about

We walked in off the street and asked for a table for two on a Thursday. In fairness the restaurant we had targeted was full, but they did manage to find us a table here. The menu is not extensive which is often a good...More

They don't honor/use Open Table correctly. Two families here at Stanford searched Open Table for an Italian place with available seating for 6. Spalti indicated seating was available. Made the reservation for 30 mins later and drove over. No seats available at all. Staff member...More
