La Spiga is an excellent Italian restaurant..... probably one of the better Italian restaurants, if not the best, in the Desert. It has a large & gorgeous out door dining patio as well as two outdoor gazebos for dining. The ambience is totally beautiful in the outdoor area. Somewhat difficult to find...it is on the far west end of El... More

That being said, we had been recommended the gardens by friends who dine there and it did not disappoint. Our waiter was very nice and on... More

La Spiga is one of those very special places. Food is always good and the atmosphere is beautiful. The dinner do get to be pricey especially with wine. Never a disappointment.

La Spiga is a beautiful upscale Italian restaurant located at el Paseo and Palm Canyon Drive. The food is very fresh and flavorful. The wine list is extensive. We found our waiter to be pleasant, knowledgeable and very helpful with wine recommendations. There is a lovely patio with an outdoor fireplace. Patio dining is popular if weather allows. La Spiga...

everything we ate was amazing. When you go out with a party of 6 it is always tricky to satisfy all. There was nothing but raves. The most wonderful wine list at very reasonable prices. From the minute we came in we were greeted in a warm smiling manner.... We shared calamari, octopus, burrata, sausage. Fresh whole fish at a... More

The service stood out for me a few nights ago at La Spiga. Example - one guest frowned slightly when she tasted her Pinot Grigio; but she said nothing about it. The waiter must have told the maitre' d because he showed up very soon after with a different Pinot Grigio and poured a fresh glass of the brand he... More
