Great Food!!! Service is hysterical. They serve bread but no butter. Pizza is to die for as well as the homemade ravioli and the veal is so tender you don't need a knife. A MUST GO TO!!!

The ONLY Italian restaurant that will order ravioli at. It is sooo creamy and delicious. As we live in Florida and come up to NJ twice a year, we always come to Spiritos, I've been coming here since 1952 when I was a little kid and lived in Elizabeth. About half the time that I go there, I will order... More

I've traveled throughout the US and Spirito's has the best chicken parm and ravs dinner in the country. Their thin crust pizza (I typically get the small pie) is also the best. Cash only, but as prices very reasonable you don't have to bring a lot.

Always the same for decades! Get the veal parm and raviolis. it never disappoints! Parking is an issue so be prepared to walk after finding a parking spot.

The best sauce without compare as well as the pizza! The veal and chicken pants are supreme and their known for the raviolis. The original 1950's decor and bring cash only.

I had the ravioli, nothing about it was impressive. Not enough seasoning in the cheese filling or the sauce. The walls were dirty as was the diner style napkin dispenser on the table. Not recent dirty either, long time crud built up. The waitress was fairly nice.

My husband and I LOVE this place. Delicious authentic Italian food. You have to get the ravioli, just melts in your mouth. All the food I've had there is amazing though. They don't take credit card so if you go bring cash!

This restaurNt has been the same since the 60s when my parents took us after St.Pats basketball games. Their raviolis are the ultimate.. Soft cheese and delicious. Pizza is great.. Garlic salad unbelieveable ..remember to bring your own butter

I had the ravioli with meatballs, and my fiance had the chicken parmesan. Their sauce was wonderful, just like homemade. The chicken parm was the best I've ever had. The ravioli was wonderful; cooked well and full of ricotta. My only complaint was the service. Our waitress brought the bread to our table, which was tasty, but she did not... More
