Came across this restaurant by chance in the heart of the old town. We had the bruschetta to start, we shared this & it was delicious. For main I had the ravioli stuffed with cod, this was nice although too fishy for the wife. She had a spicy pasta dish with a tomato sauce which was nice but quite heavy.... More

Having done our homework on restaurants serving Gluten Free food, we checked out the menus in person at Taberna De Gourmet, Familia Amigos and Monastrell. They were all beautiful restaurants with very desirable menus but in our opinion, a bit more grown up and not as suitable for our three children (oldest aged 9 who's a coeliac). So it was... More

The food was great and portions very beautiful! Price was a little bit higher but it doesn't matter because of the taste of food. Staff was friendly and funny. The restaurant was pleasant both inside and outside.

I came here on 15 July 2015 for dinner, based on other reviews on Tripadvisor. That was my first mistake. I ordered the garlic bread as a starter (this was listed under the "Starters" in the menu), and the pasta carbonara for main, along with a beverage. I waited for what seemed like quite a while for a starter to... More

The terrace looked so calling and the location of this restaurant was amazing so we chose to have a dinner here. I ordered a pasta dish and it was really nothing special and the size of the meal wasn't huge. It wasn't tasty and you can find far more better pasta in Alicante. So the location was perfect and so... More

Nice varied Italian Menu with staff who were able to make changes to the food to agree with my dietary needs. The staff were friendly attentive and extremely helpful. The food was to die for , loved the whole experience... More

We spent three days in alicante and decided to try spiga's having read other reviews. It was nice, the food was good, having said that it was nothing spectacular. It was also the dearest meal we had during our stay.

I went for lunch with my partner and order the spaghetti with half a lobster. When it arrived, the lobster wasn't cooked properly, it was partly raw. A lobster has to be cooked at over 70 degrees to kill the bacteria, and that one hadn't. I told the waiter, who took the dish away. I thought the lobster was going... More
