we met friends here to celebrate their 35th wedding anniversary. From the moment we walked up to the door, the customer service began with a big welcome from the valet, the hostess, and the waiter. The service was impeccable tableside- no glass was ever completely empty and no completed dishes left on the table. We each had a different salad... More

This was my first time at La Spiga. Decided to splurge a bit and celebrate a special occasion. I'm sorry to say that I was disappointed, given all the good things I've read about this upscale restaurant. We had a 3-course meal, and although some items were fine, others left something to be desired. The soup was too salty for... More

Connie and Vince, the owners were such gracious hosts. From their start in Edmonton, AB Canada , it has been 16 years since we last enjoyed their cuisine. Service and food were outstanding, and all in a beautiful atmosphere and surroundings. We miss having La Spiga in Edmonton, but will return to Palm Desert to enjoy a superb Italian dinner... More

Open air dining in a beautiful setting: surrounded by herb gardens and lush foliage -,what more could you ask for...? Well perhaps a trip to Italy itself? Oh, the food, yes, the food was perfection!!! The veal scallopini was melt in your mouth delicious. Not too many capers and just enough sauce. The grits were perfect and the grand finale... More

We had a party of six and food, service and ambiance is as good as it gets. Our waitress Elena was an added treat, she was knowledgeable, with a great personality.Prices are on the upper end of the spectrum, but if you're looking for an elegant evening this is the place.

We went with a group of 8 coworkers. We sat outside in the private pavilion with the fireplace. The heaters and fireplace were perfect on a cool and rainy night. The atmosphere and service were amazing. Our server had been there 8 years and was very familiar with the menu. He was able to make amazing recommendations and answer any... More

Home made Italian sausage and meatballs made daily. Thats all you need to know here. Our group had a good dining experience. But please... if you're going to tempt me with your delicious appetizer of your home made sausage, I REALLY wanted a dinner option on our limited choices as a group. Seriously, my veal chop was good, but give... More

We were a family of 10 and dined here the Friday night after Thanksgiving! The entire experience was top notch! We all had different items from the menu and everyone raved about the meal, service, wines and cocktails! This is not inexpensive but is a wonderful fine dining experience. We are planning to return for our anniversary dinner in February!... More

From the moment we entered, we were greeted in a friendly, attentive tone and received a wonderful table indoors close to the courtyard. We noticed that they had wonderful spacing of tables throughout the restaurant, it felt spacious and private. The decoration was old Italian and very pleasant. They did a great job with noise control, it was quiet despite... More
