We were fortunate enough to get a table for our party of six outside in the back. The food was excellent. So was our waitress.

Just loved this dinner and La Spiga. So many excellent choices to eat and drink. Shared puffs with burrato, Prosciutto, roasted peach and arugula. Also shared grilled octupus on salad of greens. One person had an unbelievably rich and creamylasagne with eggplant. And more dishes, in a luxuriously large room with high ceiling. Summer night, doors open, easy atmosphere. Attentive... More

I know, I know. I should venture out and try new things. But WHY? The pasta with Alba truffle butter is the best thing that's ever been in my mouth. I keep thinking I'll venture out, but I never do. It's amazing. Beyond that, tho, the staff is incredibly professional - very well trained. They don't miss a beat. Our... More

The atmosphere suggests a fine dining experience but I was disappointed. Our appetizer cheese plate was three very small pieces of dry, bland cheese. Two of the entrees we ordered were good but one was not and it was mine. I ordered the special which was halibut. I got a very small piece of fish that was dry and tasteless... More

My wife read a local blog on how good this place was and we looked forward to trying it out. The cafe is built in an old factory building and has good old wooden interiors. Staff was friendly and attentive. The menu was Ok in the amount of selection of food and wine. The problem is that they only have... More

This was a pretty good place. They have both gluten free pasta and bread, the bread made in house and excellent! I wish they had a few more different types of pasta though, or gnocchi that was gluten free. Those that had it, enjoyed the gnocchi and all dishes were good. We didn't stay for desert though.

Attentive, prompt and knowledgeable service. Fresh gnocchi, truffle sauces, Mmmm. Prosciutto cured and sliced on the premises. Delightful. HUGE wine list to suit every taste (Italian) and any price point. We had a very nice Chianti. Kids welcome and our two boys felt it.

Our party of six went here for a pre-show Saturday night dinner. We had a reservation, which we definitely needed because the restaurant filled up quickly. Our server did an excellent job, both in service and attitude. I decided to go simple and had the sausage and peppers-- it was great. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the desserts were fabulous....

Everything we ordered was fantastic! The eggplant lasagna (for vegetarians) was amazing, the gnocci, the bolognese dish (cannot remember the name)...even my kids' buttered noodles were finished by all the adults at the table! All pasta is made in house and if I could figure out the receipe for their simple red sauce, I'd be in heaven! (But you can... More
