Spagio Restaurant Review

: Yes, the name was deliberately chosen to evoke the famous Spago moniker; accordingly, the menu isn't all that unfamiliar, loaded as it is with designer pizzas and pastas. Brunch brings on items like quiche Lorraine and buttery croissant french toast, stuffed with blueberries and cream cheese. At night, the storefront space gets noisy as people crowd inside and Italian porchetta, seared diver scallops and rack of lamb is served. If you have room after your meal, check out the dessert case near the hostess stand. Or better yet, check it out before the meal and plan accordingly. For a pick-me-up, order the espressotini, freshly brewed double espresso with Smirnoff Vanilla Twist vodka and a dash of KahlĂșa. The adjacent wine store, Spagio Cellars, offers plenty of worthy bottles in the event you don't find a perfect potable on the restaurant's list; however, you'll have to pay a $15 corkage fee to enjoy it in the restaurant. Alternatively, you may opt for a bottle within the store and make do with lighter fare: wood-fired pizzas, cheese plates and sandwiches.
