When you walk in Spasso's has a long bar if you would like to grab a drink. They have a full bar and have some specialty drinks. When seated the staff is very professional. Tho food is excellent. Can be very busy at peak times.

Very good food, very good service, popular restaurant, a bit noisy ambiance. Still worth going for a good meal.

This surprisingly large, multi-room restaurant is tucked away on Front St. The rooms have the bare brick look and atmosphere unremarkable although a bit tight and very noisy when crowded. It is w/i short walk of home. Service is generally competent and friendly. I have...More
