I have been to this place a few time over the past 15 years and I have never understood why this place gets the attention it gets. Nothing ever changes.. it is in a time warp. Menu is cheap pasta ( not homemade) even the Caesar salad dressing tastes like Rennes or Costco brand with store bought croutons. The table... More

I have wanted to try this restaurant for some time since I've heard great reviews. First off, there was only one waitress and I felt that she was always rushing and not much attention to us which is unfortunate for this cozy restaurant. There was only one size of wine - 6 oz and when I received mine it was... More

This is one of my favourite places to go and a treat I always look forward to! It's very small and intimate so I suggest reservations and expect to be cozy with your fellow diners. You'll be so engrossed in your food you won't notice. I crave their antipasto salad - it's amazing. You make your own meal by choosing... More

I have been going to La Spaghett for over a decade. It is my favourite restaurant for birthday celebrations, girls night, or an intimate dinner for two. And the reason is the food. They serve the best pasta dishes I have ever had. I love that you can choose both the type of pasta you want (fusilli, linguine, whole wheat... More

Our annual mother / daughter Theatre Aquarius Christmas Show would not be complete without dinner at La Spaghett. Our order never changes - fettucini alfredo with chicken, brochette, cesar salad and chocolate raspberry tartufo. Staff/service/food - perfectly excellent. Only criticism would be that it is drafty inside during the winter; I would recommend asking for a table away from the... More

This is a small but cozy place . This was our second time here and once again we loved the food. I had the sambuca shrimp as an appetizer which was fabulous as was our main course. I would recommend calling ahead to make reservations as it is a busy little restaurant. Will definatly come back again

This a cozy little restaurant is the perfect setting for a romantic dinner. I love it. The food is amazing and fairly priced. I've been to La Speghett on a few special occasions with my boyfriend. The service is and all the food has been constantly amazing. I absolutely recommend this restaurant especially if you love Italian food.

I went on a weeknight with two friends from work for our annual Christmas dinner. The restaurant is very small and tables are quite close. The dining room is fairly dark, a good place for a date (as long as you don't talk too loud). The bread and herbed butter for the table was absolutely delicious!! Warm and soft on... More

We went to the restaurant for the first time for a late lunch. The restaurant is small but cozy. There was three of us and we each ordered a different pasta dish. I had the Tuscany and it had a cream sauce and It was delicious. The other two were very happy with their choices. Our server was very helpful... More

My wife and I were told about this quaint little restaurant in Hamilton and decided to give it a try. We were also told that the area is nothing to write home about but put that aside and visit. The restaurant is small(30 Chairs) so reservations are a must. We went on a Tuesday evening and it was very busy.... More
