Don't know why it's gotten so much hype. The appetizer was great but the rest of the meal was a disappointment. Decor is okay but nothing special. Except for the artichoke appetizer, the meal was immemoriable and pricey.

I've lived on the UWS for 10 years, and never new about Spiga. I'm so glad that after a decade, I found it! Upon entering, you feel like you're in a country lodge with the rustic look to it, and we were greeted right away with a smile. Promptly seated in the cozy restaurant, we were given menus and wine list and offered water. the waiter took a bit of time to come tell us the specials/take our order, but there was so much on the menu that caught my eye, it was probably better that way! The waiter suggested that the artichoke salad was great, and boy was he right! Delicious! I expected it to be a cold salad, but it was warm, and amazing. That plus the special chilean sea bass, I was in heaven. The warm cake/cherry ice cream for dessert.. put me over the top. I will definitely be back here again and again and ... (only con - I think it's a little pricier than it should be... but def. worth it. I didn't think the plates were small at all actually)

Portions are very small and expensive given the choices in area. I had a lovely shaved octopus salad with "citrus" that was lovely but so small that I wanted more but couldn't eat it as it was mostly lemons......sour lemons. I can go somewhere else and get great/better octopus and a decent portion for less. Same is the case with the duck. The gnocchi was good not the best I've ever had and the scallops were super small.

All three in my party couldn't stop commenting on how good the food was. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, and the service was professional.

It's nearly impossible to find really good homemade gnocchi anywhere, but this place is amazing! Their potato-pumpkin gnocchi with creamy parmesan sauce was just perfect. Real tender and tasteful gnocchi--completely authentic. So glad I found this place! Great casual atmosphere, and good service. Loved it!

We are new to the neighborhood and Spiga was recommended by a friend. My husband and I both had a salad and a pasta. The artichoke salad and ravioli with truffle oil had so much flavour. It has been one of the BEST meals we've had since moving to NYC!

perfect in all ways. ambiance -cozy, charming. service-fast,friendly. food-delicious.The rustic bread with olive oil that arrived at the table is delicious. i have tried many of the appetizers and all are good-eggplant parmesan or the salads work fine. black squid linguine with shrimp to die for. entrees cooked to perfection.-monk fish was wonderful. wine the waiter picked for us great. great, great, great is all I can say for this off the beaten path (between bwy and amsterdam) up a flight of stair with big glass windows italian.
