Porta Romana

This family-style eatery features authentic Italian food made with fresh, local ingredients. Co-owner Pepeo grew up in Milan, where his father ran two successful restaurants. Together with Pepeo’s wife Karren and chef Aaron Smentek, the team at Porta Romano creates not only delicious food but a really beautiful, inviting ambience.

“Service is the best. Food is amazing . . . best place for a date or special occasion in Spruce Grove hands down.” ~ Joel A.

Tandoori Grill

If you like Indian cuisine, don’t miss this spot! The lunch buffet is amazing, with so many dishes to sample. If you’re coming to Tandoor Grill for dinner, allow extra time to peruse the extensive menu ~ and be sure to share with your fellow diners so you can all try a few things. Every single dish has so much flavour.

“Spruce Grove, I hope you know what a gem you have! Tandoori Grill is amazing! Delicious, authentic Indian food which is well priced and always enough to take home some leftovers. They will adjust the spice level for you (mild, medium, hot). The beef vindaloo is absolutely divine.” ~Lara S.

Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria

Pizza lovers, look no further. Famoso knows what to do when it comes to cheesy, delicious pies of the savoury kind. All the pizzas are hand tossed and feature an airy Neapolitan crust that we can’t get enough of. Also on the menu is everything from soups, salads and sandwiches to charcuterie to pastas. Famoso is always a crowd pleaser and their Spruce Grove location is bright and welcoming with cozy seating.

Recent Trip Advisor review:

Famoso is my go to pizza place! Although there are many pizza outlets in the Parkland County area, there are none that can accommodate my allergen needs like Famoso does.
Although they cannot claim to be safe for celiacs, they are very accommodating in preparing my pizza in a separate space with careful service due to my gluten and nut allergies. I have never had a problem after eating what they serve me.
The food is delicious and the staff are very friendly. It’s great food for a decent price if you want a local treat!”

Sakai Sushi Bar

Sushi is one of our favourite things to eat, and when it’s done well, there’s nothing more satisfying. So we were so happy to discover Sakai Sushi Bar, which offers a phenomenal variety with fantastic presentation. (One Facebook reviewer calls it “artwork on your plate.”) The restaurant’s sleek, modern decor and friendly service makes for an all-around awesome dining experience.

Recent Trip Advisor review:

“We have been here many times since they first opened. It is always excellent. Super, SUPER fresh ingredients and the service has always been excellent . . . if you love sushi this is THE place to go. So glad we no longer have to travel into Edmonton for great Japanese food.” ~Deidre K.

Something Else Restaurant

Featured as a “Worth the Drive’ eatery in Edmonton’s 2018 City Guide, Something Else offers contemporary Greek dishes, pasta and seafood. Which means it has something for everyone! Bring the kids, bring the grandparents, and enjoy delicious family recipes inspired by Chef Louie Balomenos.

Recent Facebook review:

The food was amazing and cooked to perfection. The flavours were on point! I had the calamari, mousakka + hummus, and the lamb souvlaki… sooo delicious. Great service! Can’t say enough about this place.” ~Anneluzelia Hernandez

Red Chili Leaf

Serving authentic Vietnamese and Thai food, Red Chili Leaf has a ton of tasty vegetarian, meat and seafood options to choose from. We love all the soups and noodle dishes, with rich, deep flavours that are especially perfect on a winter day.
