Few things warm the soul quite like a hearty Italian meal. Sprezza, one of 2016’s most anticipated restaurants, takes Italian comfort food to new heights by offering a range of hand-made pastas and dishes sure to soothe any appetite. Sprezza is appealing before you ever even look at the menu; it boasts a bright, airy interior that accommodates social dining, plus a spacious patio that will hopefully provide ample space for outdoor meals. But the restaurant’s curb-appeal certainly isn’t all it has to offer, as the menu is also beautifully crafted. 

Sprezza offers plenty of signature cocktails sure to start your meal off right. The Rossini, a balanced blend of strawberry puree and prosecco, is particularly delicious and made for summer sipping. Order it with the Stuffed Fried Castelvetrano Olives and enjoy the balance of sweet and salty flavors as a tasty appetizer.

The Rossini may seem like a simple concept, but it's an absolutely delicious drink.

If you enjoy a salad before your pasta, Sprezza’s Insalata Romana is definitely worth ordering. It comes lightly tossed in a creamy Meyer lemon and anchovy dressing, which provides a bright pop of flavor unlike anything you’ll find in a typical house salad. It’s a wonderful precursor to any pasta dish on the menu.

When it comes to the main course, Sprezza certainly provides a selection. From delicious pizzas to hand-cut pastas, it can be difficult to choose. The Fusilli is an ideal choice; it’s a hearty pasta dish served with seasoned sausage and a deliciously creamy brandy sauce. However, it’s practically impossible to go wrong with any item on the menu, so don’t be afraid to branch out and try something new.

Fusilli is a classic pasta dish, and a wonderful example of Italian comfort food. 

Definitely don’t skip dessert at Sprezza. There are several items to choose from, all of which are likely to tempt your sweet tooth. The Chocolate-Date Pudding is hard to beat because it’s rich and smooth, yet balanced thanks to a scoop of savory pistachio gelato. Even if you’re full from the main course, at least take a look at the dessert menu; you won’t regret it.
Sprezza is already garnering quite a buzz, which means that finding a table can be difficult during peak hours. Call ahead for a reservation if you’re dining on a schedule, or drop in, snag a seat at one of their community-style tables, and make some new friends over a great meal.
