The meal was served family style with a delicious pasta soup, green salad, pasta with marinara, & bread & butter. We also shared a 1/2 carafe of the House red. The Chicken was excellent &... More

Espanol is not fancy, but friendly and comfortable like you are eating at your favorite aunt's restaurant. The servers were warm and quick to attend to my every wish. I had a delicious 4 course lunch, which is more than I would normally eat but that is just how they do it and I enjoyed every bite. For $12.95, they... More

We went here the night before our big race (CIM) as we needed pasta, pasta, pasta to help us run 26.2 miles. It was hard to get reservations at many of the Italian restaurants, but we got one here and the reviews seemed good. The décor is very old fashioned and family friendly. Our waitress was very friendly but seemed... More

Cousins who have either never met or not seen each other in 35 years got together at the Espanol. We all enjoyed a good Italian dinner! We had an environment where we could talk and visit and catch up with each other. The service was very nice even though they were short-handed and busy! We were all happy and filled... More

I was in the mood for Italian and found this place. Upon walking in, i knew this was a very old restaurant . I saw the menu online and already knew what I wanted. I wasn't expecting a four course meal . Minestrone soup, salad, entree, and ice cream. Excellent service. Very good meal and won't come close to breaking... More

We had never been to Espanol so we gave it a try. Not disappointed. We all loved it. You have to try the minestrone soup. It's great. Our waitress Ronni was great also. Give it a try I guarantee you'll like it.

This is a unique, old-school family-run Italian restaurant in east Sacramento. It looks like it from the outside and proves it on the inside - from years of Little League teams they sponsor to the red checkered tablecloths. They serve a four-course meal, beginning with a tureen of minestrone that left me determined to learn how to make good minestrone... More

Once again very good dinner. We had the lasagne. Service was excellent. We have visited Espanol about 6 times in last couple years and have had consistently good food and service. Never leave hungry but leave with enough leftovers for another meal
