La Spezia offers good Italian cuisine with traces of authenticity. Service is spotty and not always the greatest. Their location is good and the decor is appealing. If you're looking for some pure Italian food, La Spezia isn't the greatest choice. Think of their cuisine as the "Italian" food you make at home with a few extra spices. Nothing special. If you're honestly craving Italian food and you're not in the mood to cook, go to La Spezia.
