Spina had a happy hour going on til 8, so we took advantage of aÂ meatball dish – 4 little meatballs for $5. These meatballs were a mix
of veal and beef and to be honest, were not too memorable. Sure theÂ sauce was good, but the meatballs were just ok.
What we did enjoy was the $6 glasses of wine. I had a Spanish whiteÂ wine (a Godello) which was light and crisp, while Wix settled for a malbec andÂ said it was really good.
For our entrees, despite us both being the queens of splitsies, weÂ both got the same dish – butternut squash gnocchi. Portions were the
perfect size – small enough that I could finish it, but not too bigÂ where I was stuffed. The sauce was a brown butter, sage and ricotta sauce which wasÂ good but like the meatballs, wasn’t that memorable.
Both of us admitted we liked the atmosphere as it was cute and cozy.Â By the time we left at 8:15, the place was packed. However, as far as
the food went, Spina was a great place to check out in a jam, but IÂ wouldn’t actively plan my night around it.
