Casual yet touch of elegance. Excellent ambiance. Very good food. Octopus app was spot on as was the Linguini Vongole and veal picatta. Warm, knowledgeable service and good wine selection by the glass.

The food was absolutely TERRIBLE!! Had zero taste...no salt at all and I do not like a lot of salt. I ordered a artichoke and it was soaking WET from being boiled instead of being grilled. Water literally dripping from every leaf! My chicken parmigiana was SWIMMING in grease...just dumped on the plate instead of drained. Hardly any sauce on it and it was soggy from all the grease. The campanelle with vodka sauce tasted like they were running out of sauce and added water to stretch it. My husbands cesaer salad was literally a few romaine leaves and a few croutons. You could not even see the dressing on it (or taste it). I would NEVER go back here again.

We’ve been going to Spiga twice a week for over a year and will continue to do so. We always feel welcome which makes the meal a delight. I highly recommend the daily fish specials which are amazing, especially the sauces the very talented chef blends together to complete a memorable palate pleasing repast. Daily soups can be a treat, my husband always starts there! Wine selection is painstakingly updated and full of enticing choices. Deserts? You bet! Can’t go wrong at Spiga.

We were seated on the patio, which is always our preference in good weather, and shared appetizers, a bottle of wine and dessert. We love the entrees at Spiga, but didn't want that much food on this particular evening. We always enjoy the grilled octopus with a chili sauce and lentils, and their burrata with prosciutto and olives. We tried their carpaccio for the first time this evening and it is outstanding! Topped it all off with their wonderful tiramisu, and had a great evening!

This was our second visit to Spiga in 2019. We made advance reservations and when we arrived right on time Saturday evening we were pleasantly greeted right away. Our waiter came by within a few minutes and introduced himself. He acknowledged this was our birthday celebration and gave us a few minutes to look over the menu.

Both my wife and I ordered the same exact meal we had enjoyed on our prior visit earlier this year. That meal was excellent. This year we were both pleased and yet very disappointed. Here's why.

My wife's Tortiglioni Portobello was just as hot and delicious as last time. But my Brasato Manzo (short rib) was just simply awful. To start out, the plate and the short rib we just slightly warm. Second, the first cut revealed a big hunk of fat. Third, the mixed vegetables which consisted of sliced carrots and string beans were both cold and under cooked. Especially surprising was the rawness of the string beans. When the waiter came by I described what was wrong. He apologized and took it back to the kitchen. All this time my wife is trying to eat her meal very slowly hoping that mine would soon return.

After about a ten (10) minute wait someone from the kitchen returned my plate, warning me that it was very hot. Unfortunately the only thing hot was the plate. The only slightly warm remainder of the short rib was extremely fat...nothing like the one I had earlier in the year. Then much to my surprise, all they did with the string beans was to remove them from the vegetable mix. My wife was very upset because she wanted my birthday meal to be at the very least, enjoyable.

Later the waiter brought us a complementary desert with a lit candle. It was very tasty.

Overall: We really like visiting Spiga, we really do. The service is consistently pretty good and there is always a lively crowd. But my meal (the short rib) was a huge disappointment. Will we be back? Maybe but only after the disappointment wears off...

Lovely outdoor patio dining area. We went here on the recommendation of friends who love this place. However, we were sadly disappointed with the quality of the food. Big is not necessarily better. This does not qualify as authentic Italian cooking in our opinion. A short rib pasta lacked finesse and subtlety and my partner's Barramundi dish was under seasoned. Nice place. Shame about the food.

The food at Spiga has been consistently very good over the 7-8 times I’ve eaten there. There is good variety of dishes and specials for the evening. I enjoyed the featured lamp chop which was very tasty and a big portion. Started with the Spiga salad which was good too and fresh. The wine list is good size with a few good wines reasonably priced. I had a bottle of the Chappellet cab blend. However, most California reds are priced on the high side even for a restaurant. The ambiance is appealing but it does get loud as the evening goes on. The service is good but a bit on the slow side but I tend to like things to move along particularly when I’m ready for the check and want to get on my way. Obviously, since I’ve dined there several times, I do recommend it.
