Arrived at 6:00 pm for a reservation for 4. At 6:10 someone finally came to the check in station with about 15 other people who had not yet checked in. I gave them my name - party of 4 - at 6:00 pm. They took us to a table of 6 and seated us telling us they were a little overbooked. Ten minutes later the party of 6 complained and I was accused of telling them we were the party of six. In the meanwhile because we were being ignored my friend went to the bar to get us some drinks but the bartender would not recognize him after 10 minutes. They then told us they were moving us to a booths for 4 & seated the party of 6 where they originally seated us. They waited on them as well as two other tables seated after us. After a 20 minute wait from being seated a second time, we got up and left as it was obvious they had no intention of waiting on us. I suggest eating before you go to this place and then you won’t be disappointed.

Definitely above average place but not able to handle a rush very well. We went there for dinner before the Billy Joel concert and it looks like many did as well. I was rather miffed when I checked in having a reservation and they tried to shuffle us off to the bar because of a table shortage. That’s what a reservation is for isn’t it? Service was slow - the kitchen was slammed to be fair and while the chicken Parmesan was above average the pasta was cold in spots.

This place has great potential but did not show its best tonight. We had reservations but so did a whole lot of other people. There were more people than tables and it was complete chaos. At one point the server told me “ Sorry we have only 4 workers for 120 people. Thank you for your patience”. It took over 15 minutes for someone to bring us water and another 15 minutes to get our order. Everything was rushed and I felt like we just needed to hurry and eat and leave. Because if the rushed feeling, the food suffered as well. The menu has a lot of authentic dishes. I had the chicken cacciatore which has the presentation and flavor of a culinary masterpiece but then I tried to cut the chicken and it was rubbery and tough. It tasted as if it had been heated in a microwave or something. I would have loved to have dessert and coffee but since no one ever came back to check on us it was difficult to communicate this with anyone. I could not even get someone to take my credit card so I could pay. Spazzios could be so good but due to lack of attention to customers and the dishes, there are better options in the area

The ambiance was perfect since we could have a conversation without having to shout over music or other diners. We all thought our food was very good (fettuccine carbonara, penne ariabiata and pesto penne). The server did warn us that the Penne ariabiata was very spicy and it certainly was! Service was great when we first arrived but as they became more busy it was not as attentive. It was not bad, just not as good as when we first arrived. It took a while for them to clear our dishes and bring our bill. We will definitely return and will recommend it to others.

Spazzio’s is one of our favorite Italian Restaurants in Arlington. The food is superior to other area Italian restaurants. The owners treat us like family. Service is always great. Wine list has a good variety and reasonably priced. You cannot go wrong at Spazzio’s!!

Would absolutely recommend to friends, but would make them aware that they only serve beer and wine. But the food and service were both amazing!

We love love love Spazzio’s. The food is always amazing and well prepared. They owners are lovely people and really care about their customers and their reputation. I finally asked where all of their recipes come from and they are all made from family recipes on both sides. I have never had a dish here that I didn’t love. One specialty is the beef stroganoff. It’s our favorite.

The food was amazing but the service was poor. They did not appear to lack staff. For a restaurant of that caliber we hoped to have better service.

Have been looking for great italian food for 8 years. We have FINALLY found it!!!! Food was amazing and so was the service. If you have been looking for pesto, look no further. We saw they had it and asked for it on top of toetillini as a cream sauce. Amazing!!! I cant say enough good things about this place. Wow, and you should see their crazy huge fried mozzarella! We will now be regulars here.

Great Italian food in a relaxing atmosphere. Our family came here for an end-of-year celebration. We had spaghetti, gnocchi, and lasagna. All food was delicious. Our service was attentive.

I have been to Spazzio’s a few times. The food is usually very good but the service is unpredictable. This past time, we were sat at a booth and then didn’t receive any service. I even overheard two of the waitstaff arguing about providing us service (and one other table that hadn’t received service). After 15 minutes, we walked out and went to Vito’s in Irving. That was a much better experience.

I have been looking for a great great Italian restaurant for 10 years since I moved here from New York. Hallelujah! I found Spazzios and it was just like an old neighborhood Italian restaurant in Manhattan or Queens. The food was scrumptious and the dessert was out of this world. The service staff was very attentive. We had a very pleasant professional waitress. The owners came over to the table a few times to make sure everything was outstanding.We also loved the ambiance and the sketches displayed on the walls. I felt very much at home. We plan on frequenting this restaurant weekly.

My mom and I tried this place based on the recommendation of a friend. We were so glad we went! Service is unobtrusive, but attentive. The live piano gave just enough ambiance, but you could still have a conversation. It didn't dominate the room as live music is wont to do.

Wine list is comprehensive and well-priced. There's something for everyone.

Food was fantastic. We had the calamari which I would definitely order again, and split a supreme pizza. The calamari were crispy and tender, with little bits of fried vegetables like artichokes and leeks thrown in. That was a nice touch. Pizza was the standard higher-end wood-fired variety with nice crispy crust. I have absolutely no complaints. Everything was wonderful.
