Initially finding the restaurant was confusing as the entry off Highway 111 is through the Art Museum parking lot. It is well signed, but on a dark evening it was initially disconcerting.

We have been to La Spiga before and this time were so thrilled to take our children and their spouses. Service is amazing and food delicious. You can always count on La Spiga. Only negative was being given a different outdoor table than the one we requested for our larger group. When I called WELL in advance to reserve I... More

I just can't seem to like this place. My third visit and it's ok, but not special. and certainly not special enough to charge New York City prices $69 for an entree last night! In NYC when I pay that much I expect to be in one of the country's best restaurants; in the desert when I pay that much... More

Everything about La Spiga is top notch. The service is impeccable, the food interesting, delicious & artfully presented, & the setting absolutely breathtaking, both indoors and on the patio. This will be our first choice for any special occasion dinner.

Celebrated our last day in the Desert with another fabulous dinner at La Spiga. As in the past: fabulous. We sat in the garden gazebo on a cool evening... Heaters made dinner very comfortable. We had the heirloom tomato salad with burrata, octopus carpaccio, minestrone soups and the pasta fritta. For entrees, the gnocchi, white truffle pappardelle, and the lemon... More

This place was recommended by our hotel and it did not disappoint for our wedding anniversary. Sat on the patio (even though it was still hot!) and we were treated to a Broadway singer who was singing at a private party. She was amazing. Our view from the table was a beautiful mountain view and flowers. Andrew was our waiter... More

If you love authentic Italian food then this is your must eat restaurant in Palm Desert or the Palm Springs area. We are never disappointed with the food quality or service. My husband tried the stuffed beef tenderloin & I had the linguine with lobster both were fantastic! I also like that their bread is homemade. We shared the blood... More

It's an attractive space and my after-dinner espresso was fine, so it wasn't all bad. We were seated and my husband was handed a wine list which seemed odd since we were the guests of the couple who had made the reservation. After a while, our server came to ask if we'd like cocktails. We did not, our host ordered... More
