Spiga Cucina Italiana: Italian with a Mediterranean Twist

More from this show

Serving up modern Italian cuisine, Spiga Cucina Italiana is designed to give you that Tuscan Trattoria feel.

Operated by a husband and wife, Spiga focuses on Italian food with a Mediterranean flavor profile. They serve a lot of seafood and pasta dishes, also they have an extensive wine list with close to thousand bottles in house.

The atmosphere is slightly upscale and they have a generous outdoor patio that is cool during the summer and warm in the winter.  They are open to the families, and they are great for a date night.

According to Daniel Weathers, Manager of Spiga, they have a pretty balanced palate as far as Mediterranean or Italian influences. “We do take a lot of pride in our seafood. We take an extra step to make sure that everyday we are getting the very freshest of offerings.”  Weathers said.

“Check, Please! Arizona” guest Jennifer, loves dining at Spiga Cucina Italiana. She ordered the burrata and prosciutto to start. “Very good, nice and creamy.” she said.

For dinner Jennifer and her husband share the grilled seafood, it comes out on a board, big piles of vegetables and different types of grilled seafood. 

Guest Lauren ordered the bucatini, which is like a thicker spaghetti. “It was excellent.” she said. “It comes with a red sauce which I always love.” 

Guest Jowan tried the bolognese connoisseur, which is his favorite. “This was one of the top that I have ever had,” he said, “the sauce was amazing, it had the right texture, and even the pasta seemed to be homemade.” 

Post pasta, a sweet treat is in order. Creme Brulee, Limoncello and tiramisu are all timeless favorites and done beautifully at Crust.
