My wife and I were told about this quaint little restaurant in Hamilton and decided to give it a try. We were also told that the area is nothing to write home about but put that aside and visit. The restaurant is small(30 Chairs) so reservations are a must. We went on a Tuesday evening and it was very busy.... More

This is a small, maybe 10 tables, restaurant in an unattractive strip mall on Upper James. Once inside, it is very cosy. In fact, once you get out of your car, the aromas from the restaurant are wonderful! There are many choices of pasta and combinations of sauce. The waitress can help you decide which sauce suits a particular pasta.... More

Wonderful as always. Food was excellent we both had a pasta and put together or own sauce. Brought home enough for lunch. Very busy, service could be improved upon. There are only 9 tables in the restaurant which are fairly close together. We'll be back.

Good ambiance paired with great food made this a "good experience." Generous portions of fresh pasta were very filling. We didn't have room for desert. My only complaint is the absence of espresso in this Italian eatery. La spaghett is a long standing gem on Upper James for a reason!

Website shows a romantic little nook. Not ! I knew this restaurant was in a strip mall but I was expecting cozy, not dark with the front door light shining in my face. The website shows out of date pricing.The pricing had influenced our selection. The a/c was on full blast and I had to keep my sweater on during... More

I was contemplating even writing this review as I have dined in at La Spaghett many times over the years and have always had an excellent experience. I ordered take-out for the first time a couple months ago and the food was fantastic. However, my take-out experience a few days ago was the opposite. I placed an order just after... More

We have been to La Spaghett countless times over the years. When the current owner was an employee there. I believe that this restaurant has not only survived under her ownership it has flourished. The menu remains relatively the same, and for that I am thankful. The menu is terrific. Start with a salad if you like, I always wet... More

Very small, reservations needed. Excellent food and service. Will go back again for sure. Had to take 1/2 my meal home as it was too much for me. It was just as good reheated next day.Fresh baked bread was delicious.

We went to this restaurant to celebrate a birthday. There was a couple celebrating their 42nd Anniversary. I believe one of the owner's came into the restaurant and started chatting it up with this couple... obviously well known friends, which is fine, however... they were excessively loud and laughing for over 20 minutes while others tried to enjoy their evening...

On a recommendation we tried La Spaghett and boy I'm glad we did. From the first bite of our garlic bread with cheese, to our ceasar salad to the final bite of our main course, all I can say is DELICIOUS!!!! Can't wait to go back. Reservations is highly recommended.
