Been coming to Spettro for more that 15 years and for good reason. The food is dependably good. Limited menu but we always find something that entices. Great staff that takes time to chat - but not intrusive. Their salads are outstanding, especially if you like garlic. Overall, it's sort of a throwback environment to another era and that is part of the charm especially when in need of some comfort. Never rushed. And their are some delightful side booths that give a sense of removal/privacy from the rest of the floor. Their prices are affordable.

If you want great food, large portions, a very friendly staff, and a cozy atmosphere, you can't go wrong with Spettro. Every week, the chef comes up with a fantastic sauce and pasta dish, in addition to other specials. A must is the tortilla soup, best in town. Then there is the pizza, with some unusual ingredients. The atmosphere can be romantic and also perfect for a large gathering as well. The homemade bread is also above and beyond. My favorite place to spend a few hours.

The size off the leg of lamb was huge. The accompanying mash and vegetables great - but one thing was missing - bear in mind this is an Italian restaurant - I found no trace of garlic! The salad couldn't have been fresher. The service excellent, a good place to visit if you don't care about garlic.

we have been going to this restaurants for years. It has always been consistent, well priced,
friendly and many good dishes. This evening I ate Lamb shank which fell off the bone
It was gamey, tender and seasoned just right. The only draw back were the mashed potatoes
which were maybe instant. (I love lamb that tastes like lamb and not just another piece of meat)

I love the service. The people are always friendly and homey. You are always welcomed
with a smile
It feels like a neighbor diner----California Style-if there is such a thing.
