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

A friend and I went to La Spiga last Friday night after we couldn't get a table at Spinasse. My friend, a local, had heard great things about La Spiga and thought we should give it a try. During the wait for our table, we sat at the bar. Our bartender Kail was nothing short of wonderful: quick to address... More

What a lovely ambience. Service like this is so rare it needs to be recognized. Discreet, sophisticated, kind. The gnocchi pomodoro is perfect. Live torch singer. So romantic! Thanks for a perfect evening.

I've eaten at La Spiga a number of times over the last year or two and I come away with the same feeling each time. The room is beautiful and they seem to use great ingredients. The food is tasty, but I don't find it to be outstanding. Where things get lost is in the details. Most recent meal, bus... More

Great wine selection, good bread, great cocktails, good salads. Satisfies meat and non-meat eaters. All around, one of the best in... More

The dining room, the service, the food and the wine were all excellent. The house made pasta is delicious. Get the pasta with truffle... More

This is a comfortable Capitol Hill restaurant with open frontage to the street so where we enjoyed people watching. They also have a patio in the back for outdoor dining and plenty of table inside as well. We shared the decadent Tagliatelle al Burro di Tartufo as our app, preceded by a sweet Lavender Vodka cocktail.We then enjoyed a Super... More

What a wonderful experience! We had a multi-course meal served upstairs. Outstanding! I will remember the antipasti tray and pasta dishes, especially the tagliatelle noodles with white alba truffle butter, with fond memories! Great service. Only knock was they seemed to have trouble controlling the temperature on a somewhat warm evening. I felt bad for the servers; you could tell... More
