Went in before the rush time on Saturday. Not very busy at the time. We had to catch the hostess's attention which was no big deal but then noted after we were seated that several other folks came in and had up to 10 minute wait to be assisted by the hostess. Once couple came in and sat at the... More

We arrived to the restaurant around 535pm. We thought we would try getting their earlier to beat having a long wait time. When I reached the hostess station, I told her there were two of us and she said wait would be 30mins or that we could eat at bar as well as just sit there while we waited for... More

She recommended it as she had been there before and it turned out perfect for us. We got a booth, which is always my preference.I had grilled chicken salad and it... More

This restaurant has a good reputation, but on my first visited I was quite disappointed. On the plus side, lemon water was good and fresh, loved the ground pepper, bread was good and salad ok. Other than that, server not very helpful, never even showed a wine list, not very friendly. No good dipping olive oil, both bottle caps of... More

This is still my favorite restaurant in Sioux Falls. Elegant enough for a very special night, but still laid back and casual. The food is delicious I have never had a bad experience here. I can not recommend it enough. It will be over 25 a plate most of the time so not budget dining but absolutely fantastic. Great pasta... More

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.
