Great for what it is. It is like it was frozen in time from the 1970's like right out of a Scorceze movie. I could imagine Deniro and Pesci sitting at a booth. I went with 11 people from work from the Airport hotel and...More

I’ve worked in the area for years and have always heard about Spirito’s! Finally had it last week and the much talked about ravioli was great! Also, the garlic salad was probably the best starter salad I’ve had in my entire life! Didn’t give it...More

Spirito's is one of those old time, old school places. Still operated by the Spirito family after 80 years. Nothing fancy, but for hearty Italian comfort food, they do it the way your Grandmother probably did. Known for Veal, but our group also had chicken...More

I have never written a negative review and I am not generally a picky person. I also rely on these reviews when I go somewhere new. That this restaurant gets 4.5 stars is frankly alarming. We were duped for 120$!!!! Dirty and old. Cold, tasteless...More

Out of the 1930's, this restaurant still has its old world charm. Nothing fancy, just good Neapolitan food. Best lasagna and eggplant parmigiana I've had out of Italy.

I may have been starving the last time I ate here (two years previously). We came back because we loved it so much the first time. This time was more average. I had the ravioli because last time it was unbelievable. This time...eh! I wish...More

They don't usually take reservations. But they might make an exception for such a large group. If not go early(5:30). Usually there are plenty of tables then. Patti did you graduate in 64? My brother was in the class of 64... More
