From the moment we entered, we were greeted in a friendly, attentive tone and received a wonderful table indoors close to the courtyard. We noticed that they had wonderful spacing of tables throughout the restaurant, it felt spacious and private. The decoration was old Italian and very pleasant. They did a great job with noise control, it was quiet despite... More

This restaurant does not disappoint. It truly lives up to the rave reviews. We sat on the terrace to enjoy the cool breeze and twinkling lights. Eat light for lunch - you'll want to save up for this meal!

We enjoyed a delightful dinner in their spacious garden patio with a wonderful view of the surrounding mountains. The Insalad di Pere was wonderful. My wife enjoyed the Tagliatelle Marittima and I had the Scaloppine Mozzarella. Everything was beautifully prepared and wonderfully presented. All natural ingredients from their own garden. The wine list is extensive with medium to higher priced... More

Excellent Italian food in a gorgeous setting. The outdoor patio is beautiful. It isn't a cheap place, but it is worth it, especially for a special occasion, or date.

Our first night's dinner was here. We have been here before and really enjoy the service and food. It was also my daughter's first time here and she really enjoyed the gnocchi. I had the whole salted fish last time, which is a big meal, but very tasty and fresh and this time I had the lamb, which was another... More

As people who spend every other summer in Italy, we always can't wait to return to La Spiga. Food is of excellent quality with emphasis on fresh, we just had fresh figs and prosciutto, the figs were picked straight from their gardens. This Chef ( born and trained in Italy) does not compromise. Server David took a long time to... More
