"We have had several meals at Spalti and we have enjoyed every one. Spalti serves reasonably well prepared Italian food to a clientele of local families and groups. It’s not chi-chi but the staff treats you well, service is correct and friendly, and you will enjoy the food."

"One of our daughters suggested Spalti as a fun place to show off the California Avenue neighborhood to some out-of-towners (from Minneapolis and Cleveland, no less) and it was as accommodating as ever--including gluten free pasta dishes. The staff coped effortlessly with our gang of eight and were most appreciative of our visit. That is a great way to guarantee return visits. Bravo!"

"I came to lunch with an Aunt. She is vegetarian and had the portabello mushroom panini. She said it was delicious. I ordered the LInguine con vongole. The clams were cooked nicely and the dish well seasoned. I ate every last morsel."

"Three of us came to lunch here for a meeting. It was fairly quiet as most patrons opted to sit outside. So that was perfect for us. My husband ordered the Fettucine and Chicken. Our friend ordered the Spinach Salad with homemade raspberry dressing. I ordered the Linguine con Vongole. When the dishes came out, my pasta was the wrong one. The server was apologetic and asked the kitchen to rush out the linguine con vongole. While I have no doubt that the dish was cooked, three out of the 10 clams I ate had sand in them and the dish was under-seasoned. It dampened my appetite quite a bit and disappointing since two days earlier, I had the same dish and it was delicious. My husband had no issues with his fettucine. They were very accommodating and substituted the spinach with plain pasta."

"Our group had lunch in the private room, which worked well for us. The food and service was good and we all enjoyed our meals. Call well in advance if you want to reserve this room. The
catering menu offered a nice selection of items to choose from and reasonably priced. I would
definitely reserve this restaurant again for future events.

"This was our 4th visit and this time w brought a group of us. As always the staff were attentive, and friendly. We have a diverse group as far as enjoying food. Everyone found a good dish for them. My husband always has the veal with the lemon and caper sauce..delicious. They were very accommodating, making minor changes to dishes to cover individual preferences. The Chianti was super though inexpensive. Desserts were really yummy... we shared them, so got a great cross section.
The Tiramisu was good, and the mousse. Thank you again for light Italian food, that is always served hot, and with a smile. Thank you too for an unrushed meal that we so enjoyed

"Often hard to find place where you can have quiet conversation. Spalti is perfect. The food is very good--my seafood risotto was delicious and so was the arugula salad. I always choose this place when my friend and I meet and know we have a lot to catch up on. Never feel rushed and the servers are very attentive. Also, like to sit outside.
Only criticism is the bread is not very tasty which is probably good for me--end up eating less."

"I frequented Spalti for years and have never been disappointed. The food is outstanding and the service is fantastic. I never feel rushed even when they are busy. The prices are extremely reasonable. This is one of my favorite restaurants in Palo Alto. Highly recommended."
