Second time at La Spiga . Excellent Italian food (I know well) . We shared gnocco fritto, Pappardelle coniglio, Tortelli agnello, Tris Dolci (with the great mascarpone di Ida). Of course with a perfect red wine Dolcetto from Piemonte. Nice and quiet atmosphere.

It is always a pleasure to dine at La Spiga. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming particularly if one bypasses the busy bar and booth area and sits in the high ceilinged glass-walled back dining room. Service is standardly friendly, informal but attentive and professional....More

Warm, comfortable and empty. That's how we found la Spiga today, while the vegan joint next door had a line out the door. No accounting for taste I guess and no waiting for our excellent brunch. My wife had an excellent pesto lasagna while I...More

Excellent Italian! Our 9yo granddaugter was in heaven. Fun good server with a table by the window in back. Tall wood ceilings, tables a good distance apart. Would go again.
