Description: For nearly a decade, Spiga Ristorante served fine Italian cuisine; but in winter of 2017, Marisa Iocco—iconic Boston restaurateur (and the city's first and only #ExecutiveGirlChef from Italy)—transformed Spiga from satisfying to sublime, in ways diners never dreamed. Nestled in a corner of Boston’s metro-West area where four towns touch cheeks, Spiga serves stunning interpretations of regional cuisine as authentically Italian as its owners. Its lunch and dinner menus revere artisanal ingredients that illuminate Iocco’s collection of whimsical Italian recipes that honor hers and co-owner Carmelo Iriti’s heritage, and they highlight Iocco’s ability to balance flavors and textures. Spiga's dining room is sensuously cozy: Wood-adorned with sexy luxe touches that sparkle and shine, it's perfect for enjoying little-known dishes from the Abruzzo and Calabria: guazzetti (bowls of simmered stews of meat, fish); cicchetti (Italian tapas); and a robust pasta menu.

Extremely different but high quality food. Would recommend for anyone who wants something different but still Italian.

Spiga's interior is nicely decorated and welcoming. We went around noon on a weekday and the place was nearly empty and we were seated immediately. As an entree, I chose one of their pizzas, which they cook in a big clay pizza oven. The pizza came out just right and the portions were more than filling.

Went here for a business lunch and found the food to be absolutely delicious. Plenty of options on the menu and reasonable prices. Wait staff was attentive and accommodating. I ordered the potato gnocchi and wiped the plate clean. Also had an appetizer that was above average (prosciutto). Place is very popular and gets packed around lunch time. They were easily able to accommodate a party of 6.

Only negatives are that the portions could be larger and the restaurant is very small so tables are very close together.

A colleague and I dropped by Spiga for lunch one afternoon and were pleasantly surprised. It's oddly located, so we were wondering what our experience would be like when we saw the lone green sign. Walking in, the decor was lovely and warm. The linens and silverware very clean, and the food was excellent. We got there just before the lunch rush so did not experience any sort of wait. The staff was prompt and friendly.

I look forward to my next visit :)

I went here for a business lunch and enjoyed the Italian meal. We all enjoyed our meals and the choices were varied enough for everyone's taste. The dining area is pretty small but it's clean and nicely decorated. We had good (not great) service and I would recommend it to others.
