Osteria La Spiga
You'll love our atmosphere as much as the food! We are located in the artfully renovated Piston & Ring building; its rustic-elegant design is warm enough for family, yet cool enough for a date. We hope you'll join us soon for a tantalizing taste of Italy in our warm, inviting space.
The waiters and the manager were very friendly and helpful, however this is one of those places where the chef won't veer off of the menu at all, even if you have food allergies. So I was limited to only eating appetizers. I prefer chefs who are creative and don't mind whipping ingredients together a little differently when someone has allergies.
The food was incredible and the pacing of each dish was perfect.
One of our top three restaurants in all of Seattle. Great live jazz trio music on Saturday night, the staff are incredibly knowledgeable about wine, and every dish was excellent - we particularly recommend the mushroom tortelli. Can't wait to go back!
Had reservations for dinner and the evening was nice, service attentive and food great. We thought we might take advantage of the happy hour menu but the website did not say that the happy hour menu is just served in the front of the house where the booths are. In checking with our waiter about possibly moving, he said he would have to ask someone about our moving. He couldn’t just reseat us. I thought this was a bit unusual. Since two persons in our party had checked the web site and looked at menus etc, we would have possibly reserved a booth in the front of the house instead of the designated dinning area. In the future, I guess we’ll know.
Very very nice place. I have been there many times and it never fails to impress.
This has been our "go to" for some time because it is consistently great.
The energy, level of service, impeccable food and wine it is hard to wrong here.
We had another fantastic meal with server Jeff. Such attention to detail and a great memory for all our preferences. La Spiga staff and service in general have been top notch going on two decades for us!
The NYE course menu was great! The venue was more spacious than expected, the staff were attentive and knowledgeable. Overall it was a good dinner! Looking forward to coming back :)
Server was very nice and the food came pretty quickly. Will come back!
Awesome. Good food
Beautiful ambience and amazing food. Pasta was perfect.
Went here for dinner with my boyfriend and his dad to have a nice dinner to celebrate Christmas. Everything the server recommended was absolutely delicious. The live jazz was a bonus!
Incredible Italian food- fried gnocchi appetizer was divine. Our waitress, Bella, was above and beyond.
Service from Bella was exceptional. Food was also great. Highly recommend.
Wonderful experience and attentive service with unique suggestions and favors! Thanks for a wonderful evening.
La Spiga is my goto Italian restaurant. Food is ALWAYS good, service is ALWAYS good. I wish I remembered our wait person's name so I could give her a shout out. She made our experience even better!
We were delightfully surprised that the restaurant had a trio playing with a singer.....
Amazing food but service is slow. I would say everything is just a tad bit overpriced, but everything is amazing.
Excellent restaurant and delicious Italian food! My personal favorite is the Lasagna and my spouse loves the eggplant.
My 3rd time here and it was as I remembered--good EVERYTHING--food, lambrusco, service, ambiance, and noise level.
The food was delicious, and the happy hour prices were great!
Have been here many time. On this visit, the Gnocco Fritto appetizer was fabulous and enjoyable, like a short movie. The bean soup was jumping out of its bowl because it was so flavorful. The lasagne verde was excellent and beautifully lathered pasta and some sort of creamy miraculous goodness. The spaghetti or whatever pasta dish with wild boar tasted like a forest in the fall, perfect for that chilly Saturday night. Tartufo nero was ample enough to share and very good. Espresso was very good. The bill was adequate, but certainly not high. The main server was friendly and unobtrusive. I would give five stars, but: there are far too many people running around desperate to drag your dishes away from you. By the time the third or fourth person finally dragged out Gnocco Fritto platter away, still with food on it, it was done so fast we couldn't even object. If you have a plate you want to use for sharing an appetizer or anything else, and it's not heaped with food, watch out, they'll try to take it from you. It's obnoxious and annoying and totally unnecessary. Then, there was the server who helped bring out dishes and put them on the table. That's all she did, no other communication. She was an expert at dropping off her stuff and rushing away, leaving you no time to ask for, say, pepper or something else. These amateur touches don't ruin a fine experience, but they're a pain nonetheless.
Excellent all around!
Our server was experienced and amazing but the food just isn’t good sadly
The Wait staff was extremely commendable!
My wife had fallen on our walk to the restaurant and the staff provided
us with ice for the injury, very kind and efficient.
Server was fantastic. Food was incredible as usual. Big enough that there’s always a spot for us.
Nice setting but the food was mediocre. My wife had pasta with boar and I had ravioli with mushrooms. Pasta was was over cooked without much meat. Both dishes were not very flavorful.
I’ve been here many times before and never have I had such awful service. Waiter was barely audible, took our drink and appetizer orders and then didn’t come back did 25 minutes. The restaurant was quiet and we could see him sitting, wandering, standing around. We finally had to flag another server down to order our entrees and the salad course. Asked two times for butter for the bread and by the time it came the bread was cold. Entrees and salad course arrived together instead of staggered, and the pasta portion was very small. I don’t know if we will be back
The service was prompt but one of the servers came over many times to refill water, clear plates and even asked us for our napkins before we got up to leave-it was pretty distracting. The food was okay—the lasagna noodles were overcooked and the tagliolini was under sauced. We enjoyed the cocktails the most of what we had.
Fantastic Italian food and professional attentive staff
Waitress was terrible. Argumentative, sarcastic, poor effort.......mood killer.
this was a return trip, but disappointing compared to our earlier ones. the servings were not just on the small side, but less than that. for example, the boar ragu pasta was about half or less than what we had previously been served, and certainly was NOT worth $20.00. We will give it one more try, because we wish we could like it. The live music was great and added a nice, sophisticated atmosphere, and the overall space is interesting and dynamic; but if the food doesn't measure up .....
Osteria La Spiga will always have a nostalgic place in my heart - from back when we used to frequent the smaller earlier location near the current one. It is a warm, welcoming place, their Italian food is outstanding and the Tiramisu delectable. I especially love the passion poured into their pasta (incredibly freshly made) and their simpler gravies like the ragu. This time, for my son’s birthday, we celebrated with some excellent mushroom truffle ravioli - outstanding!
Their Tiramisu is outstanding and we always save a spot for that. While this time, it seemed to not retain its shape when brought to us, the taste did not disappoint.
This is where my daughter wanted to have her sweet 16th birthday party with your best friends. She loved every part of the evening she loved the Bolognese & to top it off they did a special birthday dessert that had her name on it wishing her a happy birthday which she said “made me happy“ : )
the consistency and quality of the food is always present here, but it’s the little touches of class and caring that really set Osteria la Spiga apart. In a word; everything is awesome!
Absolutely spectacular service and food
They seated us forty minutes after the reservation and claimed to that we did not make a reservation. Next they seated a party after us and left us waiting
Wonderful meal on last day of Restaurant Week. Had never been to La Spiga before - what a lovely place. Great menu with a wide selection of Italian specialties as well as traditional favorites. Excellent service - we'll definitely be back.
Had a lovely dinner. even though it was restaurant week and it was busy, it was spacious, and we could hear each other talk. I had the black cod, very tasty, and my companion had the lasagna, very tender and creamy. our main server was knowledgable, helped us with wine selections, and made the evening more enjoyable.
The chocolate hazelnut torte was disappointing. It was cold, dry, and lacked flavor. The lasagna was delicious - once if the best I've had. The Gnocco Frito was tasty, but a little too deconstructed to eat without difficulty. Overall it was a great experience - the service was efficient and friendly.
