I've been going to Spiga for a few years now, and have always loved it. I had dinner there last night and had the pleasure of meeting the owner Carmelo. What a lovely evening. My sister had the asparagus buratta and special of swordfish medallions,...More

My family and my sister's family had dinner, it was lovely! They were accommodating of our large group, didn't rush our somewhat slow meal. Several of us ordered the bolognese, tremendously delicious! My husband had the special, seafood risotto, a treat! I'd like to return...More

Great service and outstanding food. This was a last minute choice that we stumbled on in walking distance from our Sheraton Hotel. The place is small and tastefully put together but the real treat was the great food and service. More of a neighborhood place...More

Spiga has been through several chefs since opening. And, there has been a range of quality depending upon the individual. We have not recently been disappointed in the meals we have ordered, but we have not been overly impressed either. Basic fare. Well prepared food....More

We went here for a casual dinner. The restaurant has a nice ambience with an outdoor patio. We ordered a caesar salad, pappardelle bolognese, and linguine with little neck clams and white wine. Everything was excellent. Would highly recommend for couples for a romantic evening

First of all, the Melanzane in Crosta dish I had was superb! I have never had anything like it, with its thinly sliced eggplant, layered with mozzarella and a terrific tomato sauce, which was baked in a puff pastry. It was filling and well worth...More

Not a Michelin star restaurant in terms of decor. Service is enthusiastic and efficient. Food is excellent. Pappardelle with braised short rib ragu was superb. Chicken under brick was equally excellent. Carpaccio was some of the best I have ever had, though do supplement it...More

Spiga was PACKED last night, our first time back in over a year. Luckily we had a reservation! Food was good, although what was delivered wasn't always what the menu said. Octopus and Caesar Salad apps were quite good. I had a "special" gnocci with...More

Had not been to Spiga in awhile, and remembered why we like this restaurant so much - always a reliably good culinary experience! Their new menu offered many interesting options. We savored the pasta with a variety of mushrooms as well as a seared tuna...More
