    Four of us went there for an early dinner, and we had just the best experience. The service was very attentive, and our server was very enjoyable and professional. Our drinks were never empty! The food was impeccable. We were hungry to begin with and thought we ordered too much food, but it was perfect. We were able to go home with some, too. The food is a great value. We don’t get to Capitol Hill often, but this place will be a reason to return, and we will definitely be returning. Keep up the great work!

    Again, the food and service was amazing! I had some trouble getting there on time but luckily one of our party managed to get there on time. We couldn't communicate because he had lost his cell phone! The staff was very gracious and flexible and handled the situation beautifully. Also our serve provided us with excellent wine pairing options for our dinners!

    We had a reunion with an old friend we hadn’t seen for three years. It was the perfect spot to talk and reconnect. The food was delicious. Our server, Maddie (I think? Very short blond hair, newer to working there) was incredible— she was the most warm and patient and was very helpful in giving us recommendations and suggestions. My partner, who I was with, is of 100% Italian heritage and makes homemade pasta. He loved it!!

    I hadn't been to La Spiga since pre-pandemic. I had forgotten about it, as my business location moved since and I hadn't been in the area for awhile. It was amazing and we will definitely return! Everything was perfect, from Start to Finish. We had drinks, appetizers, entrees and desserts.

    We were all very happy to be out and about after avoiding restaurants for way too long. Our evening there was really nice. The food was good and the service excellent. I think the prices were fair and they appear to have a fabulous bar, although we ate in the outdoor area and ordered wine. It got a little cold and they did not have heat, but they offered blankets. I felt the items we ate were good choices. The food came hot and the pasta dishes were cooked perfectly. One of us said that their pasta dish was the best pasta dish they'd ever had at a restaurant that they can remember. The desserts were also nice, but nothing really adventurous in that area.

    Great food and servers were very attentive, very knowledgeable and very accommodating. We had a great experience. One of the guests was gluten-intolerant and the server guided him through the night explaining all the options and substitutions available to them as well as explaining how the kitchen was preparing his dishes to avoid cross-contamination between gluten and gluten-free dishes.

    An aesthetically pleasing restaurant, but the food arrived cold and lacked presentation; and the courses were rushed together. I was treating my parent, who is a disabled elder, to what I hoped would be a pleasant and relaxed dinner, but instead got the impression that the restaurant needed our table quickly. To be fair, we arrived slightly late (I called to alert them), but they also seemed preoccupied with the birthday party in their banquet room. The server was nice enough (if a bit too casual and overly familiar), but didn't copy down our order, got the table positions wrong (which made for an awkward moment with the runner), and did not properly present and pour the wine. I hate to be petty, but we paid a fair amount for our meal, and expect commensurate service for an establishment that markets itself as a white-tablecloth establishment. I used to be a waiter in fine-dining restaurants in NYC, so I do know what I'm talking about. Overall, Seattle still has a problem with basic meal service. Osteria La Spiga itself has a long way to go, despite being on Capitol HIll for close to ten years. I doubt I'll return.

    We were expecting so much more! The environment was clean and cozy with good energy and friendly staff. However, the food was unfortunately not great and not worth the price. Mocktail was good! Wine list not impressive. Apps just ok and pasta was way over cooked with not much wow factor or flavor. Would not return.

    Everything about this place was amazing. I don't say that often. From having an awful day, hitting traffic, being late- Osteria La Spiga turned it around. Dominic made us great drinks, and the food was so flavorful. Nothing beats hand made pasta. I got the last Tagliatelle special and WOW. My partner got the asparagus stuffed pasta and it tasted like spring in my mouth! Light and fresh! There was also love music- a pianist and bassist! Usually I find live music in restaurants loud and distracting but they really blended well and created a nice environment!

    I was excited to try Osteria La Spiga because they offer gluten free pasta options, however I was underwhelmed. Good- The ambiance - we were seated upstairs. Good- The gluten free pasta. Sauce was a little salty, but nothing too much to complain about. Good- The wine Meh-The bread service. Both the gluten bread and gluten free were fairly tasteless and not what I would expect from a nice Italian restaurant. We also had to ask for two olive oil and balsamic dipping bowls as they only brought one. We can't cross contaminate with gluten. Meh- The service was just ok. We had to ask to place a food order. We were forgotten after our drink order. Meh- My husband's lasagne. He said it was salty and just ok. Glad I tried Osteria. Nothing was horrible, but nothing was good enough to go back for.

    Fantastic and friendly service. Food was all around great. My drink was a tad bit on the strong side, but not unwelcomed, just unexpected. My only complaint would be the lack of physical menus which was a bit of an issue for my parents who tend to fumble a bit with tech.

    Limiting the time we have to dine is ridiculous and smacks of greed. It’s difficult to enjoy yourself when it feels like your dining at a fast food restaurant. I would gladly pay more to enjoy the evening instead of being rushed. We will not return until this policy is changed.

    Service was bad to the point of ruining our whole experience - everything was slow, the server barely came back to the table to take orders for drinks, apps and mains. When asked for recommendations, server had no idea about food or wine pairing. I specifically asked if a pasta had tomato sauce and was told yes which wasn’t true at all!! Unfortunate experience - especially as we had guests from out of town.
