We dine at Spasso often and also pick up "to go" occasionally. The food is really good and we like the neighborhood gem.

Been going here for years for bargin apps and beer on Friday to kick off the weekend. Spasso means a general good feeling in Italian. For my wife and I it is true.

Pricing for appetizers and wine-by-the-glass list still good, and the polenta fries still outstanding. Other appetizers... not so good. Green beans wilted and oversalted. Satay almost inedible due to the salt, and the peanut sauce was pale orange with some pepper, just as satay sauce should be, but with no peanut flavor. Service was hit and miss. I just read... More

Service was excellent, food just ok. Very busy, seems like a 'go to place'. Parking available in an adjacent lot for several businesses. However, it was very difficult to find a parking space.

My friend comes here on her own thought it would be a good choice. I have been here a number of times and was hoping service had improved. My friend got the wrong drink, and I got the wrong salad. Once I did get my chop chop salad I was very disappointed. The dressing was too sweet and overpowering, and... More

This is one of my absolute favorite places in Minnetonka. I like to consider myself a regular. The menu is reasonably priced, the food is delicious, great wine selection and a fabulous Happy Hour! I have eaten Brunch, Lunch and Dinner there and I love the menu. Killer Banana Bread served with Sunday Brunch--fun breakfast options. They have good pizza,... More

If you are looking for great italian food this isn't the place. Yet, the scallops were a pleasant surprise among a dissapointing dinner. Pizza was mediocre at best.

We brought our 2 preteen, picky kids and we all were full and happy leaving! My son declared the spaghetti - the best spaghetti ever! Great place! Although stay away from the chocolate fudge cake - its basically a hockey puck of fudge! It was rock hard.

We went out with another couple for the husband's 50th birthday dinner. Our waiter was terrible. We had to ask for bread with our entree. He asked how our meal was as we took 1 bite of it, and when we asked for fresh fracked pepper for our pasta, he brought a caddy with parmesan cheese and pepper flakes. Really??... More

We've had a number of wonderful meals at Spasso, but the happy hour menu was not good tonight. We spent $49 mostly on Appetizers. The green beans were changed to bland, cheesy bread was bland, chicken satay tasted rubbery & bland, and the meatballs were not good (think IKEA). The Fries and pizza were good, but could not make up... More
