A nice place to eat

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.

Staff made the experience special. Friendly, informative and generally just nice. Free drink at the end of the meal was given.

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

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

Very good food, both pasta and pitsas. We went twice to this restaurant. First I had the best Calzone pizza I have had. The second time I had black pasta with tiger prawns. So good, the house wine was also the best. Good service

My wife and I went there on El Noche de Huegeros. Alicante was full of people and buzzing with atmosphere. Spiga is in The Old Town just behind the Town Hall. I am not a fan of pizzas and would rarely order one by my seafood pizza was exceptional, 3 huge giant prawns in their shells, mussels, shrimps, freshly made... More

Spiga is not as good as it used to be having changed hands/owners. The service is good and very friendly but the food quite average and could be better. Reasonably priced, but not sure I would go back again.
