Food was adequate but expensive
We had a party of 3. We waited quite a while until a waiter came to the table. He was very sociable, but during the meal, he seemed to have more interest in other tables. We waited for drinks and were not immediately provided with condiments such as grated cheese. My wife had shrimp scampi that smelled wonderful, but she had to add salt to taste. Our friend had gnocchi with a red sauce that she liked. I had veal parmigiana with pencil points (rigatoni) that had very little flavor. My whole meal was very bland and under-seasoned.
The restaurant is very attractively appointed with a modern vibe. The kitchen is open to the restaurant, and the sound level is very high. I wouldn't recommend it for a romantic dinner unless you are seated far from the kitchen.
In my opinion, the menu is priced well above the average for its location, but doesn't provide food that measures up.
We may return to give it another try, but not very soon.
I’ve lived in Hamilton for 14 years but this was my first time visiting this restaurant. The restaurant is much larger than the exterior let’s on. The service was great and the food amazing. I highly recommend the veal parmigiana!
My meal was not good. Over cooked abs to send it back.
After waiting for at least 1/2 hr. even with a reservation, everything turned out very good. The food and the service was excellent.
Reservation didn’t seem to mean much for us or all the others crowded at the entrance waiting for a table in less that "socially distanced" space. Asked for coffee, never came. After waiting 10-15 minutes we got up and had to go find our waiter so we could pay and leave…never to return.
Outstanding meal in every way. Food, service, everything was top notch. Looking forward to returning.
Great service as always.
We made a last minute decision to go out this past Saturday night. We decided to give Spigola a try. What an absolute pleasant surprise. Everything about our dinner was superb. We will definitely dine here again.
Awesome food and service every time.
A can't miss place.
Always a pleasurable experience at Spigola. Staff and food is always top notch!
Great place. Amazing food. Friendly staff. Wonderful service.
This was our first time! Everything was great!
Unfortunately our waiter was not accommodating to our simple requests. Our group will likely not return to this establishment. There was only 2 other tables in the restaurant, so when the answer was “no” to “Can we have a small dinner salad”, we were quite put off.
I have eaten here many times but I do miss Happy Hour sitting at the bar
Overall great dining experience
I got their signature dis, I believe it's called Saint James. The veal was all grizzle and sent it back to the chief. Very bad experience.
Staff need to wear their masks.
Food was horrendous. Under seasoned and over cooked. Not a single employee wore a mask, unless they were walking towards a diners table
Vastly over priced mediocre food- my daughter's chicken parm tasted like cartilage- waitress didnt tell us about $5 upcharge for substituting mashed potatoes for pasta or swapping vegetables- $15 for all 3 of us- dont mind the upcharge-but tell your customer
prices on website out of date-
i dont mind spending $200 on dinner for 3 but not for pizzeria quality food.
We have dined at this restaurant several times. The service has always been good and the food excellent
I do not come here often but that may change now! I honestly forgot how awesome all the food and service is
We love this restaurant!!This is our 7th time dining there. Our favorite drink is the Marilyn Monroe
The staff are knowledgeable and patient. The food from appetizers to entrees are fantastic. Waitstaff are polite and attentive
Clams Casino were delish but the fried calamari was the best we have ever had. Light breading, not greasy, and tender calamari. So good! Our entrees were perfect. Our food server was so attentive and helpful. Tables were spaced.
Always great, food is delicious consistently.
First time there. Food was good but was not very hot.
It was so nice to be back after so long. The seating was reconfigured for distancing and felt very private. Zucchini fritte with marinara was crispy and the marinara was just the right compliment. Lollipop lamb chops were grilled perfectly medium and served hot with a side of wild rice. Rigatoni bolognaise was served piping hot and wonderfully delicious. The bread was lightly grilled and served with roasted garlic in olive oil. We loved it all. I hope more people will start to go out to dine there. They deserve to get their usual crowds back.
Food, drinks and ambiance were very good. Enjoyed it in the past, but service was not as good this time around. Needs major improvements with social distancing protocols (never saw tables/chairs sanitized between patrons; a large party was sat next to us and our chairs could almost touch; no mask worn by hostess). Felt very anxious and couldn't wait to leave!
Fabulous food. Fabulous drinks. And even more fabulous people.
For so few customers the wait staff was not very attentive. They were all on their phones and didn’t check on us very often. The food was good but not great.
Terrific food. Service was awesome. Nice place - was our first time. We were four people and all of our food came out timely and hot. The only issue - and this is pretty huge, are the straw-like seats are GROSSLY uncomfortable!!!! Please change out your seats!!! Then you will be perfect.
Food and the service were superb!
In a woro... AWESOME. I've overlooked this place for.the entire 12 years Ive lived in the area. We decided to go for Valentine's Day and we're blown away. This place is amazing!!!!
This is a restaurant in decline. I live in the area and have been to this establishment many times in the past. We went there for Valentine’s Day weekend and the whole experience was sadly terrible from start to finish. First, the wait staff was not friendly and not helpful. Next, they were out of several of the “wines by a glass” to the point we joked they were trying to get us to buy a bottle. Then came the meal. My fiancé ordered salmon and it came out literally raw and cold. Now, this would be fine for sushi grade salmon but this was certainly not that. It smelled fishy and disgusting. It was simply not edible. She sent it back and they brought a new piece which was exactly the same. Cold, raw and fishy. I reported this to the owners who were unapologetic and called the server over to remedy the situation. For the third attempt she ordered a filet mignon medium and it came out rare. No one came to the table to apologize. No offer of dessert or drink on the house. And when the bill came no comp on any dinner for the whole fiasco. There was simply no attempt to compensate for a very unpleasant dining experience. I spoke to the owner a second time about our experience, but to no avail. They no longer care about their customer.
Dear Guests, Thank you for the review. We sincerely apologize that your experience with us was less then stellar. We did everything in our power to best accommodate you. Our server, kitchen, and bartenders went above and beyond to serve you. We provided you with two wine tastings and apologized for the the one wine we were out of . Furthermore, we remade your salmon more than once to your MEDIUM RARE request against our chefs recommendation . Our number one priority is customer satisfaction.
We have eaten here several times before and ALWAYS had an outstanding experience. We were a bit disappointed by the slow service ( got the first drink, and never got asked again until dessert if we needed a refill. Which we did during the appetizers) Appetizer was great, Pasta course was great, the chicken dish was delicious. Crab cakes were small and very disappointing. Took almost a 1/2 hour following our meal for the waiter to come back and ask us what we wanted for dessert.
Worst experience ever. Valentine meal of three courses and everyone one of them an epic fail. Eggplant rollatine with herbed ricotta was without herbs and totally bland. Pasta course of cacio pepe had no pepper in it. was a bowl of white spaghetti. Lobster ravioli was only cheese ravioli with sauce. Ordered berkshire porkchop and came completely burned and hard as a rock while filet mignon was raw. returned both meals and got a completely raw pork chop and the filet mignon was two pieces of scrap meat that they grilled. i doubt it was even the loin. waited for pork chop to be returned and was unable to eat with my husband. The same elderly waiter has serviced us before and should be retired at this point. Could not get a drink. The cocktail menu didnt have ingredients for cocktails. gave us dessert without coffee. all this for $200 plus tip and the restaurant can only serve at 25% capacity. You try to keep local business afloat and it is a complete waste of time and money here. They should be on their game and going above board to cater to people. NOT THE CASE AT ALL. Avoid this restaurant.
