Great pasta spot
All of the food was delicious and out in a very fast manner. A really romantic spot, especially at night time.

Food is AMAZING! Not to mention
Food is AMAZING! Not to mention very reasonable prices. Every time we come to Seattle we go to La Spiga. It is has been fabulous every single time (20+ visits at this point). We also recommend to friends and business associates. Everyone thanks us for helping them discover La Spiga!

A Seattle Treasure
I have been to this restaurant several times in the past few years and it is one of my favorite spots in Seattle. The staff are knowledgeable, amiable, and attentive. The space itself is masterfully designed -- there really is no bad seat in the house. The food is delicious and perfectly portioned. What I like most about the menu is that you walk away feeling like you really got an authentic taste of the Emilia-Romagna region, not just re-imagined or reinterpreted catch-all Italian dishes you could get anywhere. The wine list is comprehensive but I would recommend even stopping in for a drink or two. The bartenders are so friendly and will craft any cocktail you could be in the mood for. I'm already looking forward to my next visit!

exquisite regional Italian
This is far above the average high end Italian restaurant. The decor is cool yet cozy, the food is very original, delicious and excellently executed and the service was spot on. There's not a thing that should be changed here.

We enjoyed our dinner out very much. We had great service & wonderful food . We loved the velvety smooth spinach pasta in our lasagna. Since it was early ( 5:45p ) can't really comment on the noise. My husband was a carpenter & loved the earthquake retro fitting & all the great beams & wood paneling. We will be back, thanks.

Osteria La Spiga has retained its personal touch. Sabrina's vision in the kitchen is matched by hiring great staff who never fail to meet requests for special treatment with a smile and competency.

Our second anniversary
This is the place where I proposed to my wife and we keep coming back for the food, the service and the ambience.
La Spiga has a seasonal focus so we ordered primavera style and had a great meal featuring asparagus, fresh halibut and baby morels. Dessert included strawberries and rhubarb and capped off the meal nicely.
Primo dry martinis, too.
We'll be back.

We had a great evening at La Spiga on Saturday night for dinner. We were seated on the patio and received great service from our waitress who was also very knowledgeable on the wine list. Overall, great dining experience with a fun atmosphere.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
We didn't sit outside but the deck looked cool. Looked like there was a nice view of the city from there. Next time!

Wonderful restaurant on the Hill
We are very pleased with the food, the service and ambiance of La Spiga! Our server was knowledgable of both food and wine and friendly to boot!
The tagiatelle was fabulous; wish we ordered two dishes of the dish! The start to finish to the evening was truly wonderful! Tiramisu is not to be missed!
A very big place; there is a second floor dining as well, ano outdoor seating area and an expansive bar area.
Prices were affordable.

Amazing food, excellent service
We celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary there this week, and we were really impressed with the attention to detail the restaurant has - from food preparation, to reading customer requests on opentable, to the attentiveness of the server. This is truly a restaurant we will come back to and one that we highly recommend.
The food portions are perfect, and I love the fact that they focus on quality rather than quantity. We had an appetizer, primi, secondi, and dessert, and didn't come out of there feeling like we had over eaten, and every bite of our meal was delicious.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been here a few times and just took some out of town friends there and they absolutely LOVED IT!
Our food was just DELISH!
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time diners
We were really surprised with the quality/taste and presentation of the food we had starting with the appetizer. We will certainly return and try additional offerings.
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
A slice of heaven !
La Spiga was beautiful. After just discovering La Spiga about a week ago I've already came back for seconds. The food is freshly prepared and the service is on point. This is a great place to throw a party or special occasion. If you go please order the gnocchi or the ravioli served in truffle butter with thinly sliced truffles. ( pure heaven )
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fresh ingredients, well prepared- really lets the flavors shine!
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Can't go wrong
The food was impeccable, the service was attentive and friendly without being too stuffy, and their back patio dining area is lovely and intimate. I can't wait for my next opportunity to dine here.

impress out of town guest
Osteria La Spiga showed our guest from Portland that Seattle is cool too! We only had time for the bar menu, but our guest returned later for dinner, and loved that too.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Top class food. Don't be put off by standard sounding menu - it was beautifully presented and high quality meal.

Attentive but not intrusive
Attentive but not intrusive service, nice ambiance, very good menu.

The food was amazing and above our expectations. We are looking forward to returning.

The Lingua Bue was such a
The Lingua Bue was such a delightful appetizer! The pastas were perfectly cooked to al dente and the special albacore dinner was delicious. The most memorable was the appetizer though; very tender and the saltiness went great with the bread.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
The best lasagna I've ever had in my life. Absolutely amazing experience!
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pasta was cooked to perfection
Pasta was cooked to perfection and was a just right portion size. Our server was uninterested in us...which meant we had to ask, ask, ask for beverages. Other than that, we'll be back
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
la spiga doesn't disappoint
La Spiga is one of my favorite restaurants for delicious Italian food and an atmosphere that enables conversation and intimacy. We started with a caprese salad made with cherry tomatoes and fresh mozzarella followed by a delicious eggplant lasagna and a delicate noki with fresh tomato sauce. We shared our selections and our waiter recommended a wonderful red wine which I savored. I'm looking forward to returning so I can try something else on the menu. I appreciated that our waiter seemed intuitive and allowed us to take our time to enjoy our meal and time with each other.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
With many new restaurant openings in Seattle in recent years it is easy to overlook this consistently superb venue. Flawless execution of cuisine from the Emilia-Romagna region of italy in a great space.

Authentic Italian dining
La Spiga is a gem of authentic Italian dining. All the courses are fantastic, with fresh ingredients, and a fantastic wine list. Buon appetito!
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Hugo M is awesome!
White truffle butter pasta is so delicious! I will definitely go back just to have that. Hugo M was our server and he was so nice, knowledgeable, and easy going. One of the best servers we have ever come across.

Nice 4 Course meal
Bought the Amazon Local voucher for the 4 course dinner with wine. Was a great deal and was pretty sure it would be a good experience, having been to La Spiga numerous times. It did not dissapoint in any way. While the primi & secondi seemed small when it came out it was perfect. We couldn't have eaten any more. The wines paired with the meal were also great. Unlike some places it wasn't cheap swill. And the dessert was fantastic, a great way to end the meal.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was in Seattle for about a week and ate at many fine restaurants. I thought La Spiga was the top of the line. I spent a year in Bologna, Italy and the Lasagna Verde at Spiga was as good as any I had had in Italy. A dining companion had the filet and it was so tender, the butter knife was sufficient to cut it...and it was super-flavorful (and filets are sometimes not as flavorful as other cuts of beef, in my opinion). Next time I'm in Seattle, it will be my #1 stop.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Interesting food combos
We visited during Seattle Restaurant Week, and enjoyed some new dishes. We started with a great cannelloni bean soup, and an appetizer of warm Toma cheese in grape leaf with warmed grapes. For entrees, we selected the sausage braised with grapes and escarole, and the eggplant lasagna (no noodles). For dessert, we both had panna cotta with berries. Yum.

Osteria La Spiga
this restaurant was recommended to me by a local in the Seattle area. It is in the Capitol Hill area, near a bunch of great restaurants and bars. The truffle butter pasta is NOT to be missed!

Dinner with friends
We chose La Spiga for Seattle Restaurant week and invited another couple to join us. We had a delicious dinner in a pleasant setting. My husband is from Italy and found the food very good and definitely in the Italian mode. Our friends enjoyed the dinner as well.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Three friends and I decided on La Spiga for Restaruant Week and a birthday celebration. The service was excellent and the atmosphere is relaxed and not too loud. The food was absolutely wonderful! Two of us ordered the Toma in Foglia Duva and two ordered the Polenta con Lanatra. No sharing here because we couldn't give up a bite! The two who ordered Tortellini di Zucca and the one order of Lasagne di Melanzane said their meals were delicious. I love gnocchi so the Gnocchetti alla Norcina was my choice. The lightest gnocchi I've ever had; the truffle sauce and sausage were a heavenly addition. The wines and beers were excellent and the desserts were flavorful endings to a wonderful experience. I look forward to returning soon.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love La Spiga
Had a great meal with unique dishes. Excellent service and an amazing dessert. I will absolutely be back soon and I’m telling my friends and co-workers what a terrific dining experience I had.

Just what we were looking for
I work downtown, and therefore, typically eat downtown. However, the high energy, high noise environment that seems to pervade the downtown restaurants has been weighing on me. La Spiga was exactly what I was looking for. Reasonably quiet, great food, fantastic service and server recommendations, and an overall great dining experience. I'll definitely return. As for suggestions, I had the scallop special and they were cooked perfectly. My wife had the lasagna and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had the meat and cheese plates for appetizers and would recommend those as well. Our server, Chester, was fantastic. Very attentive, very knowledgeable, great suggestions, and prompt when we were finished.

Top 10 best meals in recent memory
Last minute decision took my 24 yr old daughter and I there for her birthday dinner. The food was spectacular; I know I had lasagne but wish I could remember the appetizers too that were amazing (i believe pork was one that was so decadent it melted in your mouth). The wine list is extensive and expensive but she managed to pick an awesome red blend that was reasonable and really good. The ambience is lovely and until it got crowded late (a Fri night) noise was definitely below a dull roar. High ceilings and wood give it a cozy and rustic interior. Would definitely go back and recommend to others, especially for an occasion.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Took my whole family to this place and they liked it. I thought the waitstaff was very impressive. I told the waiter ahead of time that it was my mom's birthday and they came out much later with a piece of cake and a little sparkling champagne. Very impressive.

Osteria La Spiga
The food is very good but the prices might be a bit high if you factor in multiple courses. The Happy hour food is very enjoyable and we eat that when we can and enjoy it.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fantastic, as usual!
Great food, great service. The Crostini Del Poggio Rosso is a must-have (crostini with tuscan pate topped wtih grilled double r beef tenderloin and truffle oil). Unbelievably delicious.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food, so so service
The food here is always good, the burrata and air dried beef starter was wonderful and our steaks were good, a little underdone from what we requested, but still lovely. My issue was that we were stood waiting to be greeted and shown to our table for several long minutes. When we were given our table we had to wait a long time for our server to come over (the water waiter filled our glasses about 3 times before she came). She was knowledgeable about wine, but forgot to give us our bread and our ice bucket for the wine - we had to remind her about both. So... would I return? Sure, but I'd make sure I wasn't starving when I arrived!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is the first time we had dinner at Osteria La Spiga. The restaurant was recommended by our Italian travel guy. We visited Italy last year. This is authentic Italian dining at it's best and reminds us of a restaurant in Florence, Italy. The food and service were above our expectations. We will keep returning to this restaurant.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Love their pasta!
Some of the best pastas we have ever had including our two trips to Italy! You also must try the Gnoccho Fritto before your main dish!
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and wine
La Spiga was a great restaurant. The food was excellent, the service was great and the wine selections to pair with the dinner were spot on. One if the best times I've had with my girl friend in a while. We both had a great time. I would recommend this place for anybody.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Every moment was special. This was our first time at Osteria LaSpiga. We came to hear music by Dee and Richard. Excellent wait staff. Michael took good care of us while managing to efficiently keep up with everything else he needed to attend. We also met Hugo who made us feel extra welcome. We didn't get the names of the other staff who were wonderful. We had no idea the food would be that fabulous. We had the Aeto wine, spinach soup, sautéed escarole, lasagna verte, and apple tartlette with gelato. We split everything except the more than generous cups of soup. We were more than satisfied and although there were so many more tempting items, we could not have eaten more.
