Spigola Ristorante Vino e Cucina Ratings and Reviews
Hands down one of my favorite places I have found thus far since moving to Jersey 8 months ago. The food and wine were delicious, the staff was amazing, and the booth me and my friend sat in was absolutely gorgeous and perfect for a spontaneous get together. Will return!
Seated quickly and comfortably as the restaurant was almost empty. Ordered a Ceasar salad, veal saltimbocca, and a side of garlic green beans. I would not say any of it was exceptional. Romaine lettuce in salad was slightly wilted on the ends. Veal came with penne pasta which I thought was different. And, while the veal was good, the sauce was missing something. Just not sure what it was. Sage perhaps? As for the green beans: they were cooked perfectly but had no flavor at all. None. The cocktails were good.
My bill came to $82.00 and included two cocktails and tip. Pricey considering nothing served was exceptional.
The best part of the meal was my server who brought my drinks quickly and did not hover. I tipped him well for this.
Our waiter Luigi recommended daily special of pasta with veal. I ordered that. He came back to ask how it was. I told him the pasta was under cooked and the veal was tough. He looked at me blankly and said, "we make our own pasta and that is how it is". No mention of veal. No offer of any help to possibly solve the problem. I hardly ever complain but I was very disappointed.
Was here for a late (8pm) dinner with a party of 8 to celebrate a graduation. The restaurant is spacious and comfortable, we had great service - attentive without hovering, and good food. Ordered a variety of starters for the table and especially enjoyed the roasted cauliflower, burrata, and eggplant tower. Among the main courses, favorites included the butterflied veal chop, lobster ravioli, and the fennel sausage in the lemon zest radiatori. The only negative was that most of the pasta was a bit too al dente. Overall we had a very nice evening, and even though we were the last ones there at closing time, we did not feel pushed out the door. We will definitely return!
There must have been a change of chef which is always a risk, the portions are much smaller & not the "wow" it had been . Very disappointing since it was consistently excellent previously. Also bartenders leave you at the bar for 30 minutes without acknowledging you.
The gnocchi with chicken was the Best I ever had and all homemade The Bread Pudding was creamy and super delicious. My husband had the homemade lobster ravioli with shrimp and the most delicious Caesars salad ! He said everything was amazing including the Tiramisu ! That they had Gentleman Jack Daniels was amazing and we will be back and perhaps this is one of our favorite restaurants ! Telling everybody about this Gem !!! Specials also during the week like Prime Rib !
The Friday of Memorial Day weekend and it was hot in there. We were all sweating. You don't go to eat at a place like that to be uncomfortable. Then pay $325 for dinner for 4 people in a strip mall on Route 130. The food was great but overpriced. And we are bitter because we were sweating the whole time. It was my 40th birthday dinner. Our server was outstanding.
We were hesitant to try this place because of its location, but I am so glad we got over that! One if the best restaurants in a long time....lump crab meat appetizer
...unbelievable....the Chilean sea bass was amazing and the carrot cake was to die for! I highly recommend Spigola (Jason was our waiter and he was on point!)
My wife & I came in for Sunday Brunch again because the first time was so delicious. My wife ordered the Eggs Benedict on top of crab cakes.... Wow very delicious!! I ordered the Trenton Biscuit with Pork Roll, Poached Egg, Peppers, Onions, Gouda & A Cajun Aioli. I loved it. Thank you to the fabulous cooks n chefs at Spigola. We will be back again.
This was my third visit to Spigola and it was not great. Let me start with the table we were shown to, I had made the reservation at least 2 weeks prior, and we were seated adjacent to the bar. I thought we would be seated in the dining area, not the busy thoroughfare that was our table, we were constantly being bumped by waitstaff as they were passing through . While our waiter was quite pleasant and personal, we saw him at the beginning of our night to take our order, he brought salads and then we needed to find him to refresh our drinks when we were almost done with our dinner. He never came back to check if the food was to our liking or even if we received it at all. After he finally brought our second round, most of the food had been already been cleared. He asked if we wanted coffee. Only 1 was ordered, no mention of dessert offerings and when he returned with the coffee, he left the check. It took another 10 minutes to locate him and ask what the desserts were. We did order 2 and they were the best part of the night. I understand it was busy, but isn't this what it is all about. Serving your customers? I will most likely go back, but right now I am still quite disappointed.
I stopped going to Spigola for quite a while as I thought that the food was OK and very over-priced. However, since the new chef came aboard, the menu and the quality of the food has gone way up! I had the crab cake, and it was to DIE for! I can't wait to go back with my husband!
The restaurant, which I've been to before and was very pleased with, is fancy without being pretentious or stuffy. It's a nice place for an anniversary and so on, and I was very impressed with the food before. However, when we got there it took well over two minutes for anyone at the front to even acknowledge our existence--not even a "hello, I'll be right with you"--even with two people standing at the host station. That set the tone for the evening. In spite of regular check-ins by two different waiters, I feel like wires got crossed somewhere; it took a long time for them to return with things like our wine list, etc, and when we mentioned that we were still waiting for these items, the waiter would act surprised and remark that he had told someone else to get it for us. Also, the way in which the waiters checked in with us frequently felt a bit more like they were rushing us as opposed to simply being attentive--they asked if we wanted the check without even asking if we wanted to see a dessert menu.
The food itself was quite good, but also not fantastic for the price. The cheeses on the cheeseboard were decent, but the items they were paired with weren't quite right or adequately portioned out for the amount of cheese; the oysters were wonderful, but one or two of them had grit in them; my risotto was nicely flavored but over-cooked.
I was traveling to the area for 2 weeks on business. I had to learn that most of the restaurants in the area do not have a liquor license. They are BYOB. Spigola has a license thought and that is a huge positive. I used to like the heirloom tomato salad. Very good. They got rid of it and few other items. They started a new menu. Not an improvement. The food quality became worse. Calamari are 90% bread. Just sit at the bar...
Went with 8 people for my birthday celebration. I'm embarrassed that I recommended this restaurant. The service was very slow. The salads didn't have pears, although the description on the menu did. The ravioli didn't have pine nuts, although the description on the menu did. A friend and I ordered Risotto which was brought out a full 5 minutes after the other 6 entrees, and had to be sent back because it was cold. Couldn't find the waiter so told the man who sat us, we assume he was the Manager. he never came back to check if everything was ok. Everyone else was almost done with their meal by the time we started eating the Risotto. No offer to comp the two meals or even dessert for everyone (they did comp one Cannoli since it had a birthday candle). We don't go to restaurants to be comped, we go for good service and food, but when we don't receive it, we expect the restaurant to make an accommodation. Such a disappointing experience for a very expensive restaurant. This was a birthday celebration but there was nothing to celebrate at this dinner.
Price to quality ratio was a disappointment. I ordered scallop risotto and rice was under cooked and shellfish was not the quality I would expect from the cost( 3 scallops for $30) I sent back after tasting one bite. Bolognese rigatoni was better, but much too lemony and very little meat in sauce. Service fair at best.Even with the high ceilings the noise level on a weekend night was unpleasant. I would only return if I was being treated.
Love this place. We dined 3 Saturdays in a row and were not disappointed in the least. Food was outstanding as usual. The wine list is tops in the area. You cannot go wrong at Spigola. Service is always excellent. The rack of lamb got a rave review from my son. As I have said before best restaurant outside Philly or NY.
Once again the food and service were exceptional. The duck special was prepared as it should be and the pasta special was fantastic. Fantastic wine list continues to get better. The food is as good as any Philly or New York restaurant and the wine list is top shelf.
The restaurant was not crowded this past Sunday night. It is very large with dining separated into the bar/TV screen area and an elevated platform for diners not wishing to watch the game. We had the cheese and meat platter which was outstanding though it could have come with more bread. It did have an accompaniment of honey, fig jam, mustard etc and a margherita flatbread to share also good. I had the ravioli with smoked mozzarella while hubby had the pork osso bucco. Both were very yummy. Dinners came with a bread and roasted garlic plate to snack on while we waited. All in all a delish dinner in an unexpected place.
Excellent food. I had the NY strip steak and my wife, the scallops. Both were cooked to perfection and served exquisitely. A small plate of bread with olive oil and roasted garlic preceded the meal. Very good!! We went without appetizers on this night, but split a salad.
Very fresh ingredients with a nice Italian dressing. As everything is ala cart, the steak looked a little lonesome but it carried the meal. For dessert, we requested a crème brule, a past favorite. They had a pumpkin version which was quite good, in spite of the seasonal proliferation of pumpkin spiced everything.
As always, a quiet, classy atmosphere with the bar at the far end of the restaurant. An extensive array of wines, though we did not partake.
