Can't begin to tell you how much I love this place. I was born and reared in Kansas City, and on a recent visit, decided to treat my wife to the Jasper's experience. It was a Friday night in October, rainy, the place was very busy. They gave ...

This was a great restaurant.  I had the Tuscan bean soup followed by fettuccini Alfredo with chicken.  It was delicious.  Our server, Vanessa, was very attentive and the owner stopped by to ensure all was good.  It was worth a bit of a drive to get there and is definitely ...

Jasper's is THE BEST Italian restaurant in the greater Kansas City area, BAR NONE!   We mainly go to Jasper's for special occasions, but we have never been disappointed.  The wait staff is incredible and Jasper is the quint essential host. We love sitting out in the back patio ...

The lobster mac and cheese was amazing!!!  I was expecting a small to average size portion and I received a rather large portion with nice size chunks of lobster. It seemed as if every bite I took, I also received a piece of lobster. It was better than I could ...

Been away from KC for 2 1/2 yrs and have looked forward to returning to this favorite. Nothing has changed same owners and a few regulars who recognized us. Food was top notch as was the service. I highly recommend Jaspers to anyone interested in upscale Italian fare!

We ate lunch at Jasper's on a weekday. Service was good. I had the fish dish (I think it was called St. Petersburg fish), which was absolutely phenomenal. Our 5-year-olds did not eat our money's worth. I would split a dish between the kids next time. The other guests enjoyed ...

I'm Italian - so I'm a little jaded when it comes to Italian restaurants. Jaspers is consistent. He offers a great option to diners who are not experienced in Italian food. He is a great supporter of the Italian community and supports culinary and oenophile activities in KC. ...

Mediocre service - we expected more. Waiter seemed to be distracted and didn't create the experience we had hoped for. My wine sat empty for quite some time. Table side mozzarella was a unique experience and fresh tasting. Food was delicious and we ordered multiple dishes.

My husband and I went here a few weeks ago and loved it! We some how missed that reservations are recommended and showed up around 7p on a Saturday night. However, the manager told us to grab a seat at the bar and he would get us in within 20 minutes. ...

Amazing table side mozzarella! It's a little bit dark inside, but a crowd favorite for all Italian food lovers. The tortellini is also fantastic.

First of all, the food is spectacular!  Seriously, you won't find better Italian food in KC. And it is consistently good.  I've been there several times, and have often taken clients there. But there are a few things you should know ahead of time. The service is inconsistent. ...
