A good benchmark of a decent restaurant is if it is full of locals. This restaurant was when we walked by on a Saturday afternoon recently and thus our hopes were high. Those hopes were not matched by the experience. Yes, the food, ambience and service was all very 'authentic' but we got the impression that had we been locals the experience would've been a whole lot better. Our surly busy looking waiter was suddenly a beacon of hospitality at tables frequented by locals. The food was average with the two pasta dishes we had overcooked. That's not to say we didn't enjoy the freshness of the product used. The wine list was ample and the bill reasonable. Given the vast choices that La Spezia offers I am not sure I'd rush back unless I was there with a local.
