  • I have been a waiter for about 5 years now, and when I went to Spago's a few weeks ago it was the first time in such a long time that I've had such great service on Erie Street. The service at MotorBurger is great, but in terms of an Italian restaurant, I was very pleased. Not too much attention, just the right amount. My waiter was probably only about 23-24 yrs old, but I have been back because of him and the last 2 times I've had different waiters and they were both great. I'm glad to see that the new owner isn't just picking up where the last owner left off. He is doing things right. He, himself, is such a nice guy too. ALWAYS says hello to the guests and one night we got a free bruschetta.

  • Order: Pollo Marsala, Carbonara

  • I come approx. once every month or two and I love it. I admit I get the same dish every time but it is my favorite, what can I say. My company usually switches it up so I've tried some other items and I like it all. My service is always great (especially when I get Edie) but all the servers are nice. Food always comes quickly and service (even simply filling up water gasses) is prompt. People need to realize that at 6 pm on a Saturday night the place is going to be busy no matter what so service and atmosphere will no be as great. I go to restaurants at NON PEAK times to enjoy a quiet meal with no wait, paticularily if I bring my young son. Spagos is wonderful and the food is great quality! Best manocotti ever!!

  • Order: Manocotti with alfredo sauce substitution, tasty salad, bread

  • Spago's is a very decent place for Italian food. We had great and professional service. All the food came out on time just the way we ordered it. Great for a nice family meal. The Gnocchi dish was very small for the price we paid, but everything else was good.

  • Order: Spaghetti, Gnocchi, Salmon

  • The food was excellent, but not good enough to justify the horrible service from our waiter. We almost walked out just before the appetizer. Waited 10 minutes to sit, 10 minutes to get a menu, 10 minutes to get drinks. Yes it was busy, but our waiter seemed to be walking in circles, and lacked people skills. If it wasn't for other waiters and waitresses, our drinks would have sat empty the entire time.

    Anyway - the food was excellent, no complaints there. I had the special, which was a 3 cheese raviloi, my girlfriend had an excellent chicken dish with prosuitto. We had rice/cheese ball appetizer, sorry I cannot remember the Italian name for it.

    The wine was served in a kids juice glass, instead of a wine glass, which I found strange.

    Anyway - with so many great restaurants on Erie street, I can't see trying Spago again. There service at Spago in Tecumseh and Leamington was always bad too - so I wasn't too surprised. Come on Wolfgang! These chumps are ruining your good name!

  • Order: Ravioli, Chicken, Red Wine, Cheese Balls

  • I went to Spago based on reviews here. I was very dissapointed. This place is not very Italian. The menu is limited and the food quality is not very good. Its very "frozen entree" in quality and taste. Not real chef abilities here. Just OK food. To think its something special I would have to surmise the eater has not been to many places.

    Salad was OK. Not bad at all but not mind blowing. Best part of the meal. The rest of the food was extremely over priced to quality. Canneloni that was very bland. Gnochi that was plain yet with overpowering Basil. No real taste blend to anything. Again - I could go to any grocery store and get frozen food of this quality. The daily special was priced higher than the menu items. When I go out for a meal I'd like to have a Mmmm thats good experience. Here it was eatable but not something I'd cross the street for and at the prices - no way I'd ever go back. Service was OK but also just OK.

    Overall the impression I has was that I got ripped off and will not be going back. One of the worst restaurant expereinces of recent years all related to food quality.

  • Order: Canneloni, gnocchi, salad

  • The food here is fantastic. i go often and it is always remarkable. The salad and dressing is out of this world. The soups and bread are always great, Every main course I have had has been superb. Well worth crossing the border for.

  • Order: salad, soup, bread, pasta, chicken dishes

  • Appetizers are good. Great bread with roasted garlic, olive oil and balsamic. Salads are cold and tasty, with not too much dressing. Pasta with mussels and white wine sauce is fantastic. I love the gnocchi.

    Bonus - they have whole wheat pasta! Risottos are wonderful, and can be made with barley.

    Only drawback is that it can get too loud when it's busy.

  • Order: Italian wine, salads, pizza, pastas, yum!
