Spasso Italian Grille has one very important function, and that is a weeknight Happy Hour where you can spend next to nothing and get a full meal. It’s every weeknight until 7pm and includes specials like $3 beers, $4 fried ravioli, and $6 Manhattans. You can also go for a full dinner, and while it’s not the most amazing Italian food you’ll ever have, it’s cheap, the pasta is good, and it’s all served in a cavern-like space that kind of reminds us of the Pirates of The Caribbean ride at Disney World.
