Pool sticks clack on billiard tables, logs crackle in the wood-burning pizza oven, and patrons laugh and converse over cocktails at a shiny, polished metal bartop. Like the swanky velvet rope outside of all grandmothers' kitchens, Spacco's space blends the homey sensibility of handmade Italian food with the modern styling of an upscale club. DJs spin dance tunes as chefs create rustic feasts of wild mushroom risotto, gnocchi Bolognese, and boards topped with cured meats and giardinera. Diners perch on plush ochre-and-mahogany padded benches, sharing small plates of arancini rice balls or seared rare beef before digging into crispy wood-fired pizzas. Patrons can also dine al fresco on the large outdoor patio that seats 130.
