Excellent Italian food in a gorgeous setting. The outdoor patio is beautiful. It isn't a cheap place, but it is worth it, especially for a special occasion, or date.

I was asked where I wanted to go for dinner in the Valley, as the guest. I picked La Spiga from the reviews as I had never been there. I am a local. We arrived by Uber. No one else in driveway, yet valet couldn't help my 84 yr old mom out of the car NOR open the heavy front... More

Our first night's dinner was here. We have been here before and really enjoy the service and food. It was also my daughter's first time here and she really enjoyed the gnocchi. I had the whole salted fish last time, which is a big meal, but very tasty and fresh and this time I had the lamb, which was another... More

As people who spend every other summer in Italy, we always can't wait to return to La Spiga. Food is of excellent quality with emphasis on fresh, we just had fresh figs and prosciutto, the figs were picked straight from their gardens. This Chef ( born and trained in Italy) does not compromise. Server David took a long time to... More

The friendly greeting, warm inviting atmosphere, and mountain view made us feel comfortable and welcome right away! Our waiter, David, was enthusiastic and knowledgeable in answering questions about the menu. Each dish was as beautiful as it was delicious. The Insalata Di Burrata was a definite highlight, and we enjoyed each course without being rushed. After dinner David gave us... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants in the entire desert. The service, the garden the food is all exceptional. It is set in an authentic Italian Villa with one of the most beautiful patios that we have ever experienced. When we talk about locally sourced ingredients you cannot overlook many of the ingredients come right from their own garden.... More

One of the most expensive restaurants in the Desert. Food is OK, but in my opinion not the greatest and not worth the price. I don't think it's any better than other local Italian restaurants, however the service is outstanding.

We have had memorable meals La Spiga on previous trips to Palm Desert, and this visit was no exception. We had a reservation at 7:30 pm on a Tues evening and were promptly seated. We specifically asked for the outdoor terrace because the weather was unusually balmy for that time of year. The terrace at La Spiga is one of... More

We dined at La Spiga in April. It was a very warm evening in the desert so, we decided to dine inside instead of the patio area. Our server was very professional and took care of us. I would have to say the service was outstanding. The cuisine was good but, could have been better based on the quality of... More
