Spasso is comfy, and inviting. The portions are generous. We lucked out visiting Philadelphia during restaurant week. YUM – the escargot, grilled salmon, fettuccine shrimp and desserts all delicious.

A group I sing with performed a couple songs in the bar as a "flash mob" surprise prior to a rehearsal dinner. Even though it's Restaurant Week, plus they had the rehearsal dinner, they were able to accommodate our group of 16 without a reservation...More
