Heard alot about this place. Food too "gourmet" at times; crowded; rushed; other NYC places way better. Will probably not return.

I don't know what happened to us last night. This place was highly recommended by good friends. Forget about everything else--the dishes were just too salty. My colleagues and I were starving, so we forced ourselves to eat the food we had ordered. From the appetizers to the secondi, it all ranged from oversalted to inedible salty. The squid ink pasta was the worst offender. Really angry at myself for not saying anything. Also, the cucumber strawberry cocktail was really nothing special. What a waste of money and time!

I've been to Spigolo at least 5 times and it just gets better and better. It's hands-down the best restaurant on the UES - maybe the best in the city. It's not cheap, but it's worth the price. The service is excellent and very helpful. Seasonal menu is always on point. The fish is always cooked perfectly - and the pasta is incredible. If the strawberry cheesecake sundae is on the menu - order it!

My husband and I just moved to the Upper East Side and happend to walk by Spigolo one night a few weeks ago. There were no tables available so we sat at the bar. The food , drink and service were wonderfull! Paula the bartender was very friendly and recommended her drink specials.They were out of this world! We had ceasar and celery salads, two pastas and shared the steak. Amazing! The apple fritters were heavenly! We have been back several times. Hard to get a reservation but we enjoy ourselves at the bar. Very special place in the neighborhood!

The shrimp with faro was delicious but skimpy faro. The chicken was wonderful, but some of it was not cooked completely. The Pinot Noir was delicious for $22. The chocolate special was delicious but $6 for decaf cappucino is high. But for $137 a person, my husband had to come home and eat--the portion were small. I love the place but would think twice about coming back. Though, we always do.

We loved Spigolo in the past, but found it less than stellar on our last visit. One of the main attractions was the amazing sheep''s milk gnocchi, now, sadly off the menu. A big mistake. The chicken was good, but not unlike chicken dishes elsewhere. Whereas previously we felt the price was equal to the quality, this time we left feeling deflated, wishing the old Spigolo would return. The waitstaff, also, seems to have undergone some changes in quality. Although certainly polite, our server was clearly not well versed in the menu or ingredients (which for this type of restaurant, one expects.) Sorry to say, we won't be returning.

I ate at the bar at Spigolo a few weeks ago with a friend of mine. We had the artichokes, arugala sald, Duck and Steak. The food was amazing! The lovely redhaired woman behind the bar was extremely gracious and made great wine and food recommendations. She even let us taste the wine before we ordered. Very warm and friendly atmosphere . Great food and Great Service! Highly recommended!
