Our gluten-free pasta gets great reviews! Currently, we're offering Gluten-free Tagliatelle. These long, traditional noodles of Emilia-Romagna are versatile and easy to cook. In Romagna, they are typically enjoyed with ragu bolognese but are also simply delightful tossed with our truffle butter and Parmigiano Reggiano. All of our pastas are made fresh by hand at la Spiga and then frozen for ultimate freshness. Sold by the pound: 1 pound serves 2-4 people. Ingredients: gluten-free flour blend (whole millet, teff, tapioca, sorghum, amaranth, cornstarch, cane sugar, xanthan gum, sea salt), eggs, extra virgin olive oil
Prosciutto of parma, thinly sliced, served with balsamic mustard and piadina romagnola. La Spiga was named 2019 Specialist of the Year by the Consortium of Prosciutto di Parma!!

Transcendent Tiramisu. Deliriously delicious prosciutto with arugula and a homemade mustard that kicks back. I normally avoid pork shank but it melts off the bone and pairs beautifully with the crispy potatoes. Must try the crostini appetizer which is sublime. All with upbeat decor and killer service. Try at least two glasses of their reds by the glass, you will be happy you did.
Every staff member we spoke to was happy and kind. Our waiter was so nice and helpful! The drinks were perfection and the food made us want to cry from how amazing it all tasted!
Osteria La Spiga has a great set-up for this post-COVID time. They have a huge, high-ceiling space and a lovely outdoor patio in the back. They had four clear plastic tents set up, and brought small heaters over to the area. Very comfy and cozy. Super service and the Seattle Restaurant Week menu had yummy choices.
I would recommend Osteria La Spiga in a heartbeat!
The food was amazing. Our server was awesome
Food acceptable. Appetizer was very good but half way through, the entree was served. By the time we got to the entrée it was lukewarm. The wine was advised by server. It was tasty but lots of sediment. Felt rushed even though we had a 90 mins time allotment. Will not go back.
Very good service and food. Wine list would make any Italian ecstatic.
I would strongly recommend making reservations ahead of time and parking was a bit of a challenge.
First time there and it was excellent.
Excellent value provided by the Restaurant Week prix fixe menu. The service, however, was surprisingly slow and spotty considering the restaurant was considerably less than half full due to our early reservation and Covid restrictions.
Prosciutto was wonderful and was beautifully presented. You must try.
Outstanding service from Jeff. Food was great and wine recommendation was spot on.
Delicious food. Great service. Reasonably priced. We will return
It was perfect. We felt comfortable in our own secluded space and all precautionary measures were in place and were followed.
We started with the prosciutto then had the filetto and Tagliolini al Ragu di Cinghiale as a main course. All were exceptional. The wines, La Miraja Ruché di Castagnole Monferrato and Cà dei Quattro Archi Tajavént, were excellent, as well. Dessert consisted of a delicious Panna Cotta and Dieci Anni cocktails. The restaurant staff were careful and safe, not to mention incredibly helpful and responsive. Just to be clear, this is NOT an inexpensive eatery! However, I still highly recommend this restaurant.
Jesse was a GREAT host! Hope to be back soon
Our server was excellent and very knowledgeable and helpful.
For the first meal out after a full year of staying home due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Osteria La Spiga was the perfect choice to return to indoor dining. My wife and I had great wine, perfect bread, and shared the pork shank and lasagna which were incredible. This was a top-5 meal for both of us and we highly recommend.
The best set up of any restaurant to not make you feel like you are in a half empty space. The service was perfect and the food was better than I remembered. You made a really special evening even more special!
We LOVE la Spiga and dine here regularly. They know how to do pasta better than anyone and the service is always friendly. One detail that took away from a relaxing evening tonight was the very loud and fast paced show tunes type piano music. I feel bad stating this because the young man playing the piano was very talented. We felt like more current music at a softer slower pace would have been much more relaxing. I’m sure this same artist could be given that advice and it would make a perfect evening. We’ll be back!
Always amazing and one of my favorite places in Seattle....
Outstanding service from everyone!
Food was delicious, staff was friendly and knowledgeable. COVID precautions were appreciated. We had a wonderful time.
Our server was fantastic. The tiramisu and crostini were the group favorites.
the food and wine were excellent, our waiter could not have been better, and we really enjoyed our little tent.
The ambiance was amazing, as a place to go for an intimate dinner for two. The service was excellent, both in terms of overall friendliness and the knowledge freely provided on what to eat and drink. The wine recommendation was excellent, some of the best we've had within the budget we set. And of course, the food was phenomenal, and great value for the quality, and finishing with the well-loved tiramisu capped off the night beautifully.
I'm definitely looking forward to coming back!
This is one of our favorite restaurants. The service was exceptionally good this evening.
Service and dinner was wonderful! We sat outside in one of the bubbles. There was a heater to keep our toes warm. We felt safe with the protocols in place. We will definitely be back!
The service was amazing
Food was not as flavorful as expected. Service was amazing.
Absolutely amazing food, service, and ambience! Highly recommend
Love the Italian cooking. Wine list is excellent and very reasonable. Love this place can't wait until this COVID is OVER !!
COCKTAILS: GIN – The Tiny Italian was refreshing but not too sweet. I 100% recommend it.
APPETIZERS: We had the half board Prosciutto appetizer. This easily is enough for 3 people. It was delicious! You can tell the prosciutto was freshly cut.
DINNER: Out of the items we had I would recommend the Tortelli Al Porcini! If you like Truffle, this is the one for you! It was perfect!
DESSERT: Ok so we typically don’t get dessert but we did this night and OMG I am so happy we did! We had the Panna Cotta Al Caramello dessert! I’m telling you its nothing we’ve ever had before and it was oh so good! The texture is similar to flan, its light, its fluffy, it wiggles ha ha. If you are full, I promise you, you will make room for this dessert, its that good!
Excellent food, very authentic, service was also excellent. Highly recommended!
