When it comes to finding a culinary gem, sometimes you stumble upon a restaurant that surprises and delights. Spiga in Scottsdale is one such hidden treasure that leaves a lasting impression on its patrons. With a rating of 4.1, this charming Italian eatery exceeded our expectations. Here’s a closer look at our experience, the ambiance, the menu, and a selection of external reviews that add to the charm of Spiga.

Ambiance, Food, and Drinks:

To start, the ambiance at Spiga sets the perfect backdrop for a great dining experience. The bar area is lively and attracts a mature crowd, creating a welcoming and vibrant atmosphere. With bar seating and open high-top tables, it’s a fantastic spot for Happy Hour. The drink specials, particularly the sangria, are a must-try, and the shared bites like meatballs, hand-tossed pizza specials, grilled octopus, and artichokes are not to be missed.

As for the food, we started with fresh bread and spiced butter, setting the tone for a delicious meal. The octopus was a rare find and left us pleasantly surprised. The burrata and prosciutto platter was generous, and the seafood fettuccini and bolognese pappardelle were simply amazing. However, the caprese salad disappointed with bland tomatoes. The Gamberi Limone, a shrimp dish in butter sauce, was a highlight.

Menu Selection:

Let’s dive into a portion of the menu to give you an idea of what Spiga offers:

  • Gamberi Limone: A delightful shrimp dish served in a rich butter sauce.
  • Three Way Salad: A refreshing salad with great flavor. Perfect for those looking for a lighter option.
  • Meatballs: Spiga’s meatballs are a game-changer – meaty and not overly sauced. A must-try.
  • Ravioli: While tasty, it was a bit on the salty side, which might not suit everyone’s palate.
  • Thin Crust Pizza: Their pizza is a revelation for those seeking authentic Italian flavors.

External Reviews:

As it turns out, we’re not the only ones singing Spiga’s praises. Online reviews on platforms like Yelp, Google, and TripAdvisor echo our sentiments. Visitors often mention the exceptional food, attentive service, and vibrant ambiance. Spiga seems to consistently win hearts with its Italian authenticity and wide range of options.
