We had dinner with a friend at Spiazzo after an absence of 6 years. She loves the veal masala, and we tried their cannelloni with beef. We also had a glass of sweet wine and a Caprese salad that was delicious because it used slices of big juicy tomatoes and not cherry tomatoes. There are many booths for more private... More

The food was excellent specially the lasagna best I ever had, chicken parmigiana, and spaghetti calamari was well prepared tasted fresh and delicious, the bread nothing special no sourdough. The prices are around 18 dollars per dish.

I'm so pleased that you enjoyed our classic Italian dishes, Roger -- there's nothing better than some classic lasagna! It sounds like you got to try some of our other restaurant favorites as well.

On a recent trip to San Francisco, I was disappointed to return to Spiazzo's and find the friendly personality of the restaurant changed. The food was still outstanding and the servers that were there were attentive and conscientious, but about half-way through dinner, a man arrived and glared at customers and servers alike, making me uncomfortable. I found out he... More

I'm shocked to read this, and I'm saddened that your most recent experience wasn't as wonderful as your past meals with us. For 20 years, people have come to try our Italian food in our warm, inviting restaurant. I assure you that there hasn't been a change in our friendly ambiance, so I hope you'll consider coming back for that... More

It had been many years since I had been to my local neighborhood Italian restaurant and decided to go after my wife requested Italian food. We went for lunch and were not disappointed. We were immediately seated so we started off with the appetizer Carpaccio di Manzo which is thinly sliced raw beef, shaved parmesan cheese, capers, arugula, and a... More

We've been coming here several times during the last 6 months. Recommend it highly for their quality of food. The service can be little "off" if the place is really busy. But the food makes up for the it. One of the better Italians restaurants in San Francisco. Prices are reasonable and their daily specials are always a good choice.... More

When asking for the best Italian and seafood around Portola Ave, Spiazzos is where Yelp brought me. Not only was this restaurant a great find, but I also discovered W Portal. What a great street of shops like what you would experience in the Rockridge neighborhood in Oakland. Spiazzos had a European feel making the most out of their space.... More

It has become a tradition for my husband and I to visit this little neighborhood cafe on our way to the airport after our visits to San Francisco. It is just a little storefront, but welcome and an obvious desire of the proprietors to share good food awaits. This was true when we visited Saturday night. The hostess greeted us... More

You're absolutely right. Vinopopos -- sharing good food is exactly what we love to do! Italian food is best when it's shared, so it's wonderful to hear that you've had great meals with us on every trip. The bruschetta is a classic and is a wonderful starter to a spring meal such as the lamb. Looking forward to hearing what... More
