This was a family outing to celebrate a birthday.  Being Italian, I tend to have a very high bar for Italian restaurants.  (If you see me in an Olive Garden, know that I’m either off my nut or being held hostage.)  Spigola is definitely high end.  Probably a good place to take a date if you want to spend a little cash.

I had a special, which was homemade gnocchi in a white sauce with steak tips.  It looks a little small, but it was heavy enough that it filled me.  Prior to that, it was some amazing Italian bread, which had been lightly grilled, served with roasted garlic swimming in olive oil.  Appetizers included heirloom tomatoes and mozzarella, drizzled with balsamic vinegar.   It was all good, especially the bread.  High marks for the bread.

But the prices were super high, in my view.  Low end was $26 for an entrée with a top end of $45.  While it was very tasty, I think it should’ve included at least a side salad.  Our waiter was great and he kept my iced tea glass full.  I tried some of the other dishes, including swordfish and veal.  All were excellent.  Still, I feel like something was missing.

I give Spigola a 7 out of 10 keggers.
