    Restaurant has a nice ambience, our server did a good job, however, the food was just so so. Not sure why this restaurant got such great ratings. It is average at best. I had the chicken Parmesan. My chicken was dry. Pasta was good sauce was kind of salty. The taste of the food was fine other than the dried chicken.

    The bruschetta was so good! It tasted super fresh! I got the beef burgundy and that was one of the best Italian meals I have ever gotten! The waiter was extremely friendly. My husband and I went for our anniversary and he took the time to ask about how we met. Overall it was a great experience and I would definitely go again.

    Not my favorite visit - waitress was amazing, food phenomenal but we were seated next to a very loud table and then basically asked to leave because of another large group coming in after being there 2 hours. I get it but would rather sit in main part of the restaurant where it’s more intimate… keep families with kids and large groups in the back rooms

    I was shocked how busy they were at 6 pm on a Wednesday -- every table was full!!!! This was our first visit. The wine I picked was spot on, nice and dry Pino Nior Bread comes out warm and is delish -- of course don't forget the balsamic and oil to dip the bread in!! We both had the Ceasar salad--while it was quite good, the dressing was a bit different than I was expecting--I'd still order it again. Husband had the seafood risotto and cleaned his plate I joined the clean plate club with the shrimp and capallini As busy as they were the food came out warm and delicious. We will definitely return with friends.

    A favorite restaurant for us. Only 2 miles from our home. Upscale, yet casual enough for relaxed dining. Just wish grill would not have food with some aroma from kerosene? Is it used to light the wood.

    My parents and I had an amazing experience at Spezia. They sat us in a special booth since I was celebrating my graduation. The host, waiter, and bartender all congratulated me when they came to the table. Each of my party had a pasta dish that were all delicious. Would highly recommend!

    The Good - food and service were very good as expected for a high-end restaurant. The Odd - we had a 5:00 PM reservation and when seated we requested a booth. Our request was granted with the stipulation that we vacate the booth by 6:15. What? We could not control when food would be delivered. Any why? Would we have had this stipulation if seated at a table? Ultimately, we were able to finish our meal with desert with 7 minutes to spare. Should we have desired an after-dinner coffee or drink, we could not have vacated the booth by 6:15. Definitely put a damper on our experience.

    I made a late reservation but was seated 30 minutes early by the hostess. Unfortunately, Spezia chose just one section of the restaurant for all latecomers -- a section that still seated several earlier groups (some of which got louder and louder as time passed. Heather, who seemed to be the only server was overwhelmed -- especially since she still had to pay attention (and rightly so) to regular customers. My initial drink order languished on the bar for 15 minutes or so; I had to remind Heather about it. That said, the food remains comforting but not overly traditional. A huge Caesar salad (which I nearly finished) did the job ably and shrimp scampi with angel hair and broccolini and plenty of garlic was satisfying. The leftovers made a fine breakfast the next day -- Heather brought takeout utensils along with the takeout container. A bit disappointing after years away, but it was a busy, busy night with insufficient staff.

    We love spezia so this visit was disappointing. Overall it appears the front of house management is totally lacking. Our visit started by waiting 10 minutes to be greeted. Then the waitress clearing the table next to us overfilled her tray with dirty dishes, dropped the entire thing 10 feet away from us. The young man waiting on us while very sweet had no business waiting tables on his own yet. We purchased a $120 bottle of wine, he did not present correctly, broke the cork & we had to open the bottle ourselves. He did not pour the wine for us, no decanter was brought either. He didn’t offer soup or salad & we did not receive bread service. None of this is his fault, it is a lack of training. The price point of this restaurant dictates better service. Not once did a manager stop by to ask our everything was. Thankfully, the food was outstanding. Shout out to the kitchen.

    Our server, Cory, was knowledgeable and attentive. We ordered appetizer crab dip, fishy aftertaste, sent it back but still had to pay for it. Steak was perfect. Large serving of spaghetti did not have enough sauce. Eggplant was tasty but a tad mushy. Spezia salad was very good. Lemon dessert was good. Chocolate mousse came as a layered cake, not expecting cake, wanted a more mousse like dessert. Booth ledge was very dusty/dirty. Not sure I’ll be back.

    Everything but our service was great. The server “doesn’t drink wine” so he had nothing to offer as far as suggestions. When I asked what type of Moscato they have he acted like there was only 1 type of Moscato. We will be back but this person will not serve us again.

    This is the 1st place we think of when dining out with friends!! We typically dine here for dinner and it’s always delicious! (I’m slightly obsessed with the chicken gnocchi dish)🥰 I dined with girlfriends for lunch on a Sat. afternoon and it was just as delicious!! Great food, great service and amazing ambience!

    As usual the salmon was perfectly honey crisp outside and tender inside. The Alfredo was perfect, not too heavy not too light. My friend ate the filet and all her mashed potatoes, unusual as she is a carb watcher. Service was lovely, not rushed, not loud. Just right for a weekday birthday lunch.

    Definitely in my top 3 of steaks I’ve had - The sirloin was very good along with the mashed potatoes, and can’t beat a place that has Guinness on tap! Dinner rolls were very good (kinda wish you got more not sure if you have to ask or pay but…) and service was amazing. Tad on the expensive side would be even more worth it if you got maybe two sides instead of just mash potatoes.
