Description: The atmosphere is as sophisticated as an old 40's black and white movie, but at the same time, as inviting, creative and warm as a contemporary New York restaurant. The cuisine, with meat and fish specialities, is characterised by a tradition which has been reinterpreted in an exquisitely creative manner. In addition to the air-conditioned interiors, in summertime one can dine on the outside terrace. The Owner, Sante Milandri has been a restaurant owner since 1982. In 1998 he left "Bistrot Clardge" in Cesenatico (one of the first restaurants on the Riviera to focus on a refined clientele, as well as a younger one) and he moved to Ravenna where he set up the Spasso Bistro. The interior designer and co-owner of the Alexander restaurant carried out the refurbishment work in full respect of the history of the building. The first reports dating back to 1840 when it was used as a residence and later like restaurant. The seating capacity is sixty in what was once the stalls and a further forty seats are available in the circle.

Friendly and helpful. Lovely service and excellent food. They could not have been more helpful and ensured we had a perfect final evening for our tour. The place is not touristy and is a short walk from the main square. Very elegant. We will be back soon!

This restaurant was highly recommended by the proprietor of our Airbnb as well as Tripadvisor. Because we went for an early dinner (we are Americans:) we were the only people there initially. The service was truly outstanding and the dishes were very creative and delicious. They presented us with an amuse bouche of ricotta with pea sprouts, spinach and sea asparagus. We didn't have a first course but for our main course, 2 of us had the stinko, which was a totally different presentation than what I've had before. The pork shank had been cooked, removed from the bones and placed into a rectangular mold. It was very tasty. My husband had the spaghetti with oysters, which he loved, and my friend had smoked ricotta with pea sprouts and fava beans. We all shared mixed vegetables of spinach, potatoes, zucchini, and white radishes. We also shared two desserts of a peanut/caramel dessert and a cheese with lemon crumbles. We enjoyed mirto and hazelnut liqueurs with them. The interior is lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.

Probably I am not given a 5 star rating for this restaurant because I truly believe this is a great dinner restaurant but very heavy for a nice simple lunch I was looking for. Very sophisticated and elaborated with very good textures and taste. Very romantic for a great dinner, probably not for lunch

We visited the restaurant during a short tour of Veneto and northern Emiglio-Romagna. We decided to take the fish tasting menu. The quality of ingredients and the inventiveness of all dishes were impressive, the service and friendliness beyond reproach and the extent and value of the wine list was excellent (we took a bottle of Valentini Trebbiano d'Abruzzo for more or less the same price as we would have paid in a shop in the UK). All in all a very pleasant and enjoyable evening in a small and beautiful city. We certainly intend to come back.
