    Food was pretty good. Service was very slow. over 30 minutes to get drinks. Manager was great, accommodating and friendly. Food was good. Presentation could use some more curb appeal. Seasonal Gnocchi was tasty but grey and unappetizing. Overall I would go back, they were friendly and it's a nice place. Probably staffing troubles and compliments to the chef for trying different things.

    Enjoyed my pasta, although kind of overpriced, the only thing I would complain about the food was that my pasta was lukewarm when served, and the variety board literally has 1 piece of cheese in it. 1 piece. The worst is the service that ruined my whole dining experience. Poor service, server Lily rather being flirty at guests or their significant other than actually being professional and friendly.

    Nice ambiance - there was live music and warm lighting. The food was all high quality. None of the pastas really stood out, but were all very good. The prosciutto plate with the flatbread was excellent. Would definitely return.

    It was great!! I went with my friends for my birthday and we got drinks and dinner and the staff was so nice the entire time. They took pictures of my friends and I and it was so sweet. I will say, the portions were smaller than I anticipated which was surprising but overall very good!!

    When we arrived it took about 15 to get a waiter over, they told us they were out of everything on the menu. Our main dish came out before everything else and the food appeared to be reheated. Not a pleasant experience.

    Tried a new place for a date night out and it did not disappoint! The atmosphere was very chill and romantic, but wish we had been seated further into the restaurant instead of at the window overlooking the construction across the street. Aside from that, the drinks were knock-your-socks-off amazing! The portions for the SRW 3 course meal were perfect and the fresh pasta was very good.

    Good food and drinks, but horribly slow service. The kitchen had a ton of mix ups with our orders (like forgetting to put the order in at first) and they were out of a lot of items - perhaps due to it being Restaurant Week. Server was nice, but overall probably wouldn't go back when there are so many other great places in the area (like Plum next door).

    Great food as always. Seated at 7:05 for a 6:45 reservation. Check was incorrect resulting in two VISA transactions instead of one. Server didn’t offer coffee or dessert after the meal. Probably extra busy because of Seattle Restaurant Week. But management needs to make sure the customer experience isn’t deteriorating.

    La Spiga is one of the best, most consistent dining experiences in Seattle. As someone with a gluten allergy, I tend to avoid Italian restaurants. La Spiga has a great selection of gluten free substitutes, including the best tagliatelle I’ve had. We dined during restaurant week but ordered off the regular menu, and the service was great as always.

    Went to La Spiga for Seattle Restaurant Week. We were delighted with the staff, design, and ambiance. We ordered from the 4 course featured menu and planned to share bites. The waiter graciously provided side plates for us to split up our salad and our prosciutto appetizers. The cocktail list is inventive and the wine list offers an excellent range of type and price point. Our courses were artfully plated and knock down delicious. And we could enjoy it fully because the lighting at our table was perfect. Too many restaurants spoil the experience with dim ‘mood’ lighting, obscuring the visual aspect of the meal. Osteria La Spiga has a slim downlight suspended above every table so diners can fully enjoy the kitchen’s artistry. Overall a fabulous dining experience. We vowed to return to explore the full menu next time.

    The hostess was impossibly rude and the waitress was so forgetful it was as if she wasn’t there. When we arrived late (but within 15 min grace time) the hostel mentioned several times that we had to be done by a certain time and we should know that because we were late. Not relaxing. Then the waitress just forgot stuff making it take longer. You can’t have it both ways. Rush people then forget to put in their orders. Piano player was nice. But please ask the hostess to tone it down with the stressing people out.

    I found the offerings for Seattle Restaurant week to be small. The portions were tiny and there was little if any meat to be found anywhere ( 3 course menu). We had wine recommended by waiter that was $22 a glass. Wish I had known the cost. I’d have made another choice. Our two $35 meal choices were almost less than our $66 dollar charge for 3 glasses of wine. The service was very good though. Initially we were offered a terrible table but hostess moved us after we voiced our displeasure.

    Fun evening. We each enjoyed our dinner. We sat in front near the bar which is preferred as more intimate. The front door was open so it was a bit chilly but we also didn’t ask that they close it. Had a nice bottle of Sicilian wine and past with seafood, fettuccine with truffle oil and lasagna. Also had the roasted vegetables which were tasty and the cannellini soup. All very good.

    The food was great but the service was just ok. Everyone was friendly but our water glasses stayed empty, finished plates from the appetizer stayed in front of us for a long time, and it took forever for someone to take our order for our entrees. I know the world is short-staffed right now so I try to have some empathy, but for the price point I was hoping for better. I'll give it another try - it wasn't BAD, just okay.
