Love coming here for all the dishes, but my favorite is the shrimp neighborhood! Haven't been able to find shrimp as delicious as Spiro makes anywhere in the world! Traditional Greek food and a welcoming atmosphere. Worth the trip no matter where you live.

Great authentic Greek food. Small restaurant but charming and quaint. Family owned.... Husband cooks while wife and son wait on you. Love the appetizers.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the Utica area and I was glad to be able to dine there on a recent visit. Food is delicious - lamb is always perfect and their salad is served with the freshest greens, tomatoes, and cucumbers....More
