Was my 1st time here since I was a kid. Meatballs and bread sticks so good. Food and wine was a great price!

Driving to The Spinning Fork may throw you for a loop. Surrounding area is a twist from the eclectic cuisine you'll find at this quiet Italian restaurant off the beaten path. You'll pass this establishment on your way to Jungle Jim's (if you're coming in from 275). Having spent over eight years in Europe, courtesy of your tax dollars (Military... More

The front desk staff at our hotel had highly recommended this place and I am glad he did. I am not a huge Italian food fan but this food was great! I had lasagna and my husband had fettuccine and both were so good! The house salad was terrific! Would go again.

Looks nice, food was good but not great, a bit on the pricey side for a place to dine in that area. I didn't hate it

I've been to this place twice now and wasn't happy with the food either time. The first time I went, I started with the " Inaslata Caprese ". It was lacking in "fresh basil " and they should leave off the capers . The the main course was "Spaghetti Marina " . The Spaghetti was over cooked and too soft.... More

I tried this place because it was rated highly on Tripadvisor. I do not understand this rating. Both times we went there the pasta was mushy. I think they cook the pasta way ahead of time and simply reheat it.

I think a few years ago Spinning Fork in its old location was fairly good. Just don't care for any of the food but the bread is good. I won't be back. Not authentic italian.

I love going hear for the Veal. You get some spaghetti with it. But the veal is always grand. You do need to tell them is you would like the bread sticks a little softer and to bring butter. The staff is not always in you face. They ask if you are ok and check on you. I go here... More

We just tried this place, on a local's recommendation. I read some of the reviews that said this place was "sub par", but thought we should try it anyway. Boy were we wrong. First we had the caprese salad. Strike one, no basil. Then we all ordered different pastas. I had the spaghetti with meatballs. Strike two! It tasted like... More
