Spizzico Ristorante Italiano - Quality Italian Fare



We have been regulars at Spizzico for couple of years now since we moved nearer to town. It is not a big establishment - maximum 20 indoor seats and an alfresco area that can accomodate another 20. The food quality has always been consistently good and the owner, Steven, and crew are a warm and friendly bunch. The plus plus plus point for us is that they allow BYO wine with no corkage charge everyday, 7 days a week. 


Last Saturday, we made a reservation with them again to celebrate our helper's birthday. 

For cold appetizer, we had Insalata Caprese - Sliced tomato with buffalo mozzarella cheese, basil, oregano and olive oil. Fresh!

They serve very good calamari fritti which we usually order for the kids but for this visit we opted for the soft shell crab for a change. The crispy and delicious fried seafood was served with a spicy tomato sauce.

All our three kids love the sautéed clam here so much that this is one dish we have never missed to order whenever we visit Spizzico. This is a simple dish but the combination of good quality olive oil, garlic, dried white wine and broth elevate the inexpensive seafood to a new level. I like it too.

We ordered different pasta dishes, which are generally good, for our mains. Wife had ravioli stuffed with fresh spinach and Ricotta cheese in pink sauce. The kids had their usual creamy Fettuccine alla Carbonara - fettuccine with bacon, parmesan cheese, light fresh cream and egg yolk. Our helper ordered their oven baked traditional Lasagna, I did not taste it but she told me it was good. And I tried their new dish recommended by Steven, Crab meat Spaghetti Aglio Olio.

The kids had Creme Brulee for dessert and Steven specially prepared a Tiramisu for my helper's birthday. That was very thoughtful of him.

We had a good time here at Spizzico.
