I've been a huge fan of this place since it opened and if rating then would have put the five stars. Over time I think it has faded a bit and some of my favorite dishes changed in a direction that was not to my liking. Still, the place has good salads and great, garlic-filled dishes and it is rare I feel disappointed. I brought many people here over the years and most like it very much. It is noisy and crowded at times and there can be a wait. Usually the service is very good and I very much like the Spettro logo and sign outside. They sell t-shirts and mugs and I know several people who have bought them. All and all a pretty fine neighborhood restaurant that is casual and fun.
