The tradition of fine cuisine at Espanol goes all the way back to 1923, when it was located at 114 J Street and served the traditional cuisine from Europe's Basque Region. In 1952 the building on J Street was sold and Espanol moved to Old Sacramento into a commercial hotel at 3rd and I Street. Several years later, in 1959, the restaurant was bought by Babe Luigi and his brother Mario. With new owners and the name and cuisine change that followed, Espanol Italian Restaurant was re-introduced to Sacramento. The Luigi brothers have been serving the residents and visitors of Sacramento true Italian Specialties ever since. Five years after adding the Italian Flair to Espanol, the redevelopment in Old Sacramento caused the popular restaurant to relocate to its present location. Today, the restaurant continues to be run by the Luigi Family and continues to be one of Sacramento's Best Italian Restaurants. Babe's three children, Perry, Paula and Karen are proud to serve you in Espanol's friendly atmosphere, which has kept customers happy for three generations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The food is always excellent in all respects at the Espanol. Great family atmosphere and wonderful helpful staff. Feb 24, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Service was slow and waitress could have checked on our table a lil more often. A smile or too would have been nice.Also soup ministroni was very good although served Luke warm. Bred was also good however cold.The fried chicken was DEFINITELY NOT worth the price, a half of chicken deep fried with no seasoning what so ever Was not tasty at all, not even close, I really should have that taken off my bill. I will not be dining here again. Feb 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A very nice addition would be to have the French bread warm when it came out to us.We have been at your restaurant three times now for our sibling dinner that we have once a month and have enjoyed it each time, but several said "oh, the bread is cold, it should be warm".
