Spasso Restaurant in Minnetonka, Minnesota

Spasso is at 17523 Minnetonka Blvd. Minnetonka, phone number; 952-224-9555.

Open for lunch and dinner.

You have to have a meal here! My husband and I wanted to go some where nice for our anniversary. We decided to check out the new Italian restaurant in town.

We called and they said they do not take reservations for small groups. So we went at 6:00 p.m. and we got a table right away. We enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. As the waitperson pointed out, the menu has a lot of choices, from New York Strip to Mac and Cheese. So, it’s great for the whole family! My husband ordered the Walleye and said it was good. I had the Salmon and it was very tasty. We split a pear bread pudding and it hit the spot.

The service was prompt and polite. We decided Spasso was similar to the restaurants in the downtown warehouse district with it’s tall exposed ceiling, stamped concrete floors, (and a little bit noisy.) When we first arrived, at about 6:00 p.m., the bar was empty, and at 6:30 p.m. it was full of people waiting for their table.

We haven’t gone out alone for a long time, just the two of us. So, wouldn’t you know, as soon as we walked in the door we saw our neighbors/best friends. My husband and I sat next to the kitchen and our friends happened to be at another part of the restaurant. I asked them to comment on their food.

One person had the Florentine Panini which they said was very good and could be improved with a side sauce; one adult had the Chop Chop salad and the Mediterranean Fettuccini, which was good but the lemon flavor overpowered the other flavors; another friend had the bacon and white cheddar burger which was perfect; and other had the Ceasar salad which was extremely good; the sausage pizza was excellent and the mac and cheese was as good as home cooked.

We ran into another old Friend of mine and we had a few laughs. So, to make a long story a little shorter, I would say, Spasso is absolutely the place to go, to see and be seen, in the Lake Minnetonka area! You will love it.

    Glad to hear you had a good experience at Spasso. My husband and I tried it not long ago and left curious to see how the food progresses over time. Living just down the street in Minnetonka, it is a great location, not far from the highway, but away from the busy city. We also wrote a review of it on our food blog at

    “For $15 its slightly steep but trust me, you get your money’s worth at Spasso’s sunday brunch. From scrumptuous meats to creamy omeletes and waffles, you have your fill, washed down with excellent coffee/orange juice (your choice). But my favorite has to be their made-to-order omelet with my choice of mushrooms, tomatoes and parmessan chees and the tiny, hot waffles with some excellent maple syrup and whipped cream (you can indulge yourself as much as you want, right). The roast beef and pork were added bonus with some yummy herb red potatoes. Oh! and there were an assortment of muffins, doughnuts and pasta salads too!!
    All-in-all, a beautiful sunday brunch on a beautiful day with pleasing ambiance at SPASSO. I would definately repeat the experience and recommend it too.
