Great last nights dinner in Seattle. Lasagna was one of the best ever. Great server who was knowledgeable about wine and pairing. Nice ambiance.

The food was delicious! A little on the expensive side, but with the quality of food it was well worth it.

Love the space in Chophouse Row. We went on Monday Night and found out they have Happy Hour from 5pm-close. We had the cashews, fried cauliflower and the lasagna. The cashews were toasted and seasoned with rosemary, cayenne and sea salt and were definitely addictive....More

Attentive service and tasty dishes. About one mile from down town near an eclectic mix of clubs. Walk back down town at around 10pm maybe wasn't a great idea (no fault of the restaurant, my choice). Around the club there was a bohemian mix of...More

This place is absolutely beautiful and the service is outstanding. Really really impressed with our waitress customer service and the owner who came by to talk to us. First time here, our food unfortunately was very underwhelming and bland. Out of 6 of us, there...More

In Italy, the osteria is an inviting neighborhood spot where locals savor fresh, seasonal food while enjoying the company of good friends. Renowned for its Northern Italian cuisine, la Spiga is authentic enough in both food and ambience to make you feel a wave of nostalgia, even if you've never been to Emilia-Romagna. Chef and co-founder Sabrina Tinsley crafts the Romagnola cuisine to make it genuine, yet hers alone. Using the very finest ingredients, menus are changed seasonally to reflect what is freshest in local markets. As co-founder and host Pietro Borghesi says, "An evening at la Spiga is like dining in Italy - without the plane fare."
