We make it a point to stop at Spezia every time we are in the area. We love the location and the atmosphere is perfect. I am always impressed by the knowledgeable wait staff skill and the skill the kitchen demonstrates. Dessert is a must!

It was a date out on a Sunday at 7pm. We were seated promptly with no reservation. We sat at our table a good 15 minutes before anyone noticed we were there. Our waitress took our drink order. Then brought those and took out dinner order. We ordered the antipasto plate for starters with a soup and salad, and our... More

Fiance took me here for my birthday and a date night the wine was great and the food was fantastic, definitely a little more upscale of place price wise but you don't gf get glared at for eating in jeans and boots.

This is a big, slick Italian restaurant on the outskirts of the city. Our server was Kim. I know her name because she wrote it on the paper tablecloth with one of the accompanying crayons. She was explained the menu to us and overall, did an excellent job. The was nothing special about the food. We had salads to start,... More

Had a very nice business dinner here and really enjoyed it. They have an employee who raises heritage tomatoes and brings them to work each day where they become the daily special. Kind of neat idea. I had my tomatoes with wild salmon and the whole experience was great. A very good, but not great server made the meal a... More

The salad and pasta were very good and fresh. It was a little pricey in my opinion but the quality of the food was great. The atmosphere was very conducive to visiting among the group I was with- light music that didn't overpower conversation. I would go back if given the opportunity.

Ordered Carmelized Brussel sprouts and Italian filet tips. The Brussel sprouts were burned and the tips were half filet tips (melted in my mouth) and the other half seemed to have been flank steak tips. When I got up to find the server, I was greeted by a barrage of f-bombs coming from the kitchen. My companions had great dinners.... More
