There used to a certain fast food pasta restaurant in Orlando that I LOVED. Since it’s demise there really hasn’t been a replacement in the area… until now. Have you heard of Spoleto?
Spoleto combines the speed of fresh-casual service with the sophistication of an Italian restaurant and gourmet-quality food. This is what sets us apart. Spoleto further defines the uniqueness of our concept by offering a seasonal menu based on the availability of fresh local products and an endless number of guest-selected food combinations.
A choice of 30 authentic Italian-inspired toppings gives everyone a chance to create meals that inspire their palate. Guests can craft a pasta dish, flatbread or salad and interact, talk and laugh with the chefs to experiment with a variety of fresh ingredients in our open kitchen. You can choose to indulge in richer ingredients like meats and cheeses, as well as a full complement of fresh vegetables, whole grains and fruits.
Each entree, regardless of which you pick, comes with 6 toppings included in the price. Six not enough for you? You can add an additional 3 toppings for just $1! The cool thing about these toppings is that they include all organic veggies, homemade meatballs and Bolognese, and cheeses imported from Italy. You can create your own combination or pick one of the chef creations on the menu. They even have a Chef Special board that changes weekly that features recipes developed by the staff.
On my first visit to Spoleto I had to try a pasta AND a salad. I had the Spaghetti with meat sauce and the Fig, Prosciutto, and Burrata cheese salad. Have you ever had Burrata cheese? Well, it is amazing. I couldn’t finish the pasta or the salad, so I had some great leftovers for the next day. They also serve beer and wine, so you can enjoy a nice glass of Italian wine with your meal. Or if you are in a hurry you can use their handy dandy app to order food to pick up on your way home.
There are currently 4 Spoleto locations in Florida, all of which are in the Orlando area, with two more on the horizon. Even though Spoleto started in Brazil, Orlando was their first US location AND their CEO happens to live in Clermont. Can’t get much more local than that for a chain!
Thinking about checking out Spoleto soon? Well this weekend they are running a great Mother’s Day special. On May 14th, from 4 pm – 9 pm, Spoleto invites all moms to dinner! All moms are entitled to a free “Build Your Own” pasta (no purchase necessary). In addition to their meal, moms will receive beautiful flowers and Baci chocolate.
I am SO glad that there is a quick service Italian restaurant in Orlando now! Sometimes I just want to pick up a good hearty meal on my way home and not have to cook it myself. So I have a question for you Spoleto, when are you coming to Casselberry??
