Crave this place.
My boyfriend lives in PPB and we have gone to Spano's several times. It doesnt hurt that he knows everyone there so the service is more than amazingt. I love the food and the portions are so big you have food for 2 days.
We love when they have the special cannoloni it is stuffed with shrimp - OMG the best. I also love the fact that it is a BYOB so the cost is next to nothing. Can't wait to go there again!!
Best Italian in nj.
I LOVE this place! I love Italian food and Spano's is the best. The ambiance is really cool, especially if you get a booth. It's got a tin roof and great music, and the food is amazing. The calamari is the best I've ever had, I don't know what they do to make it so good, but it's tender and delicious and comes out on this huge platter. You get so much food here, all the portions are huge, you get enough to take home and eat it again the next day. The Flounder Oreganata is my favorite, it's so good. The Chicken Parm is great, I think it's the sauce. Spano's sauce is the best I've ever had. Always leave room for dessert. They make their own tiramisu and it's delicious. They also make a homemade ricotta cheesecake which is great too.
If you want a great meal, Spano's is the place to go.
Really great food! Busy Sat. nights. We visited spanos on a very busy night, the atmosphere was very little Italy, I had the clams casino, very tasty, my husband had the mussels, he loved them. Our entress were huge. my husband had the sea bass and I had the shrimp over linguini, it was very, very good. The service was ok, our waitress was a loud mouth little women with dark hair that had no problem yelling at the other help in front of the guests. Her voice could break glass! Not good, Not professional. Other than that everything was great. We did not have dessert we were to full. Great little town as well
Spano's at the White Sands. We visited the alternative location for Spanos, as the Arnold Ave location is often packed on Saturday nights. The upstairs location is a romantically decorated, small room with bar. The piano player accompanied with appropriate music throughout our dinner. We started with the cold antipasto, average. The bread was too airy and dry for my taste. The house salad was sloppy, but the balsamic dressing was good. I had the Spagettinti Carbonara, which was perfect. My husband had the Chicken Ala Carmell which he enjoyed. Both portions were HUGE. The dessert was my favorite, Tartufo and cappuccino which were both divine! The service was very good..not pushy, nicely timed and knowledgeable.
