This is our second time dining at Spago, the first time they were very busy with a full restaurant, this time not so, the wait staff were quite young and I suggest, inexperienced. We bought our own wine which should have made no difference to the level of service, but I had to ask for wine glasses,an ice bucket was offered but no further wine service was offered.Corkage charge, wow! The entree came to the table without much delay, the meal followed in good time, both courses very enjoyable. Desert (Chocolate Mousse) while very tasty was served at room temperature (quite warm). The souffle a clash of strong flavours and two different textures, one trying to overpower the other.Two of our group had a very tasty risotto and like the Pasta meals was quite large so leftovers were requested to take home. Both parties risotto were put into the same container, good thing we new each other well otherwise the risotto should have been put in the bin, you don't combine two guests meals in the one take away container unless requested. With only two new young wait staff who had their work cutout for them dealing with a nearly 3/4 full restaurant and only the barest of "Service" I was stunned to be shown the "Tipping" procedure on the EFTPOS device when I paid the bill. We will go back but Management needs to act on some of the critique with some training of wait staff and kitchen staff.
Spago is one of the best pasta restaurants in Sydney. Pasta is made in house and the sauces are incredibly tasty. I've been back countless times.
Food and staff service were good. The music coming through the speaker was unpleasant. The restaurant tends to be noisy if a lot of people are in the restaurant. Possibly a soft surface either on a wall or carpet on floor may assist in lowering the noise. However with the music blaring as well as the noise of customers, it was too noisy.
The service was great and we were seated promptly at our table. The wait staff were very attentive and managed our orders proficiently, and the food was excellent.
