    Pastas extraordinary as ever !! And the main dining room is very pleasant, great light, warm glow, it's a plus to be able to see into the kitchen. But the room at the entry smelled very funky last night, flunked the nose test - the host, guests? - if we hadn't been to Spinasse many times before, we would have turned around and walked out, no idea what the problem is, but they need to fix it. The big knock on Spinasse, it's pricey. $30 for a bowl of pasta is over the top. Plus a 200 per cent mark up from retail on wine. Like most places these days, cutting corners and charging more. But Covid is over and competition is coming, Spinasse shouldn't take guests for granted.

    The pastas here were amazing, fresh & so so flavorful. However the halibut and the brown butter cake were nothing spectacular. After trying the pastas, we expected the other plates to be just as good, and they were good, just nothing compared to the pastas.

    Amazing experience. Lovely concept that leaves you feeling like a family friend visiting a dear Italian aunt and nibbling with friends while she prepares your childhood favorites in the adjacent kitchen. Warm, welcoming, deeply knowledgeable service with no hint of pressure or pretense, but a tangible sense of wanting to ensure guests’ comfort and enjoyment (shout out to Valerie by the way for her impeccable service). The food brings to mind in the same bite both decadence and simplicity, nostalgia and the excitement of a brand new journey. Every detail was impeccable. My wife and I were blown away.

    Spinasse is a favorite for high-end Italian cuisine made with the best seasonal ingredients. Halibut was perfectly braised in butter on a bed of the freshest spring peas and pea vines. But the real guilty pleasure was the fava beans on a generous dollop of ricotta whipped with lemon. Yum.

    Spinasse was Splendid! Everything was delicious, and exceeded my expectations. The Tajarin was so silky and a mouthful of heaven! The cipollini onion antipasti totally blew me away too! The waiter was excellent and very knowledgeable. The only thing they could do better would be to put more space between the tables, it was difficult to even slide through and not knock off our neighbors drinks, and I'm not even a big person, it would have been impossible for a larger person to have navigated it. So that's my one issue, otherwise everything else was spot on. I will definitely return!

    Ambience was great, waiter was very knowledgeable but talked too much. Ordered 4 dishes and split them with my boyfriend. 2 out of 4 were good. The halibut was the last part of our meal and it was the worst part of the meal. Had no salt, seasoning or love. It was such a let down. Won’t be back.

    My wife and I had a 5:30 reservation on a Monday, so not really a peak time. The menu was not given to us but rather a QR code that you had to download on your phone...P.I.T.A. What if you didn't bring a phone; and the waitress didn't ask if we'd rather have a printed menu...choices not offered. Ordered a cocktail, and the waitress took our order when she brought the cocktails. While enjoying our drinks, our first course came before we had a chance to relax and enjoy them...felt rushed. Overhead fans made it cool and uncomfortable. My wife had to wear her jacket through dinner and we had to eat fast because our food was getting getting cold. Had to ask for bread and then after that had to ask for butter...again, not offered. Food was/is delicious! We've been to Spinasse quite a few times, and it's one of our favorite places. We have recommended it to everyone we know. The prices/value did not match our experience.

    This is Northern Italian cuisine - all pasta, breads and marscapone made in house. We had a fabulous server Vanessa, who didn’t rush us and listened to our preferences for food and wine. The mixed antipasto plate , pasta with sage and pasta with rabbit was amazing! We love to travel, and experience good food and wine. The price tag is a bit pricey, but on par with Sf restaurants but in many ways better. We will definitely return.

    Spinasse came highly recommended so we were excited to try it-especially the homemade pasta. Appetizers were fantastic-we did the sampler and the cippollini (sp?). The halibut and pork meals were fantastic and the pasta was good but heavily sauced. Dessert and coffee were great-lemon was better than chocolate. Will definitely return.

    Spinasse is one of the best restaurants I have ever been too. Cocktails, bread, first course, main course, desert and proper coffee - all excellent. The unique menu is fantastic and not the standard Italian "me too" stuff. The service was amazing, very caring and knowledgeable staff.

    We did the tasting menu, overall we did not find the food to be tasty, the pasta dishes did not work for us with the thin angel hair pasta. The main courses were not composed dishes and just not up expectation. Deserts were straight from frozen to pate and not homemade (chocolate), would expect better from this restaurant. Service was overall stiff and poor wine recommendation. $1000 for 4 people, way overpriced for the experience
