This is where I want to be on nights that I have nowhere to be. They have some amazing dishes in here that I really enjoy. The last time that I was here, everybody was happy.
Family and intimate – Great Pizza, bread, pasta. Full bar and friendly wait staff. Good for date or group of friends and family.
Very affordable especially Wednesday all you can eat pasta. Usually each night there is something on special. Check the board as you come in. Great take out pizza!. If you are "high class" ie. "snooty" go elsewhere but if you want GOOD food at a reasonable price try Spagnuolo's. Same family has Spag's down the road 6 miles outside of Williamston also great pizza but more of a sports bar.
Food quality is much less than acceptable but the atmosphere is ok. – One of my friend recommended this restaurant and a friend of mine and I headed to Spagnoulo's on Friday night.
Quality of food (bread): As you arrive at the table, they will serve you some focaccia. The focaccia was pretty good - soft and chunky. I prefer to have more rosemary on top but it was very tasty. The bread is topped with some salt a well.
Quality of food (salad): We ordered antipasto salad. It was acceptable. It had enough olives but the amount of meat was too much. We rather felt like eating meat, instead of salad. I would have enjoyed it if the lettuce was not dried. It lacked the freshness greatly.
Quality of food (pasta): Pasta was far from acceptable. Pasta is not warm enough, not al dente. I believe they just boil tons of pasta and leave them, then mix with sauce after the order. Pasta turned out to be too soft, far from al dente. I ordered puttanesca but the sauce was pretty untasty as well. They just mixed the ingredients. Garlic was not roasted enough and they left chunk of garlic in the pasta. I think they did not consider how much having garlic as itself in the sauce can cause the unbalanced taste. I was shocked that they could serve such pasta in a restaurant. It was almost similar to some low quality high quantity pasta serevd at university cafeteria.
Service: Service was good. We were promptly guided to the table. However, the waiter who served us forgot to bring a place to share a salad.
Overall: Overall, we were very disappointed. If you love tastiful things, I do not recommend.
Best Italian & Pizza – By far the best italian in the area. Pizza is the best! So cheesy and flavorful. I've tried several pasta dishes and salads as well. Everything was perfect. So hard to pick a favorite here.
the best pizza I ever had – I was suprised by both great taste and cheap price.
There are providing traditional italian pizza, and it taste just right.
Superior Spagnuolo's – My significant other and I arrived around 8 o'clock. We were greeted promptly at the door and were sat in a booth, with adequete lighting. Within two minutes our server, Molly, greeted us with a smile. We ordered an appitizer of calamari, and to our amazement it was the fresh seaffod that we were hoping for, non of that processed rubber. After salads and bread our main entrees came out. My girlfriend enjoyed her meal, and my dish was excellent. After being kindly handed the bill with a smile our total for the night made the whole experience more enjoyable by ten fold. Spagnuolo's, a nice eatery, with the comfortable ambience that will not only allow your stomach to be full, but also your wallet.
