While the owner of this establishment may have a long lineage, having worked in several North End restaurants, the fare is nothing out of the ordinary, but the prices are way over the top. Maybe to some tony Needhamites, both price and fare may seem exceptional, but then again, some also think Needham House of Pizza is fantastic! Not to... More

YOU MUST BE KIDDING! We have been going to Spiga for a number of years and had always been very pleased with the food and ambiance. Not sure whether the restaurant has new owners or they just lowered their standards. (1) Last night we were surprised to see and hear a DOG at the table next to us. Why an... More

Spiga is a hidden gem of Needham! Located right off the main road but you would never know. Patio is perfect for any summer lunch or dinner. Pizza is spectacular and can be topped with anything on the menu. Highly recommend for a quick and fabulous meal!

So sad. We are regulars here. Great Italian without the drive. Apparently a new chef. Changes for changing sake? Bolognese was a staple - now different but not better. Menu is updated - missing the octopus that was so good. Even heating the berries on the dessert when it doesn't make it any better. Sad. Please bring back the classics!

This a fabulous little Italian restaurant where I frequent when ever I'm in this area. I've only been able to enjoy their lunch menu, which features fresh pastas and fire roasted pizza. The dishes are prepared to order and the service is excellent. I will continue to go back as often as I am in the area.

An absolute delight in a tucked away spot, an oasis of comfortable Italian food and wine in a very easy locale. Multiple pasta choices, fish, seafood, chicken, beef, lamb. You have your choice. At the end of a holiday weekend, they ran out of shrimp. The substitute: lobster. A few local celebrities were dining there. No one whose autograph you'd... More

This was our first time at this restaurant but everyone else there seemed to know each other. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. My beet salad was great. My husband enjoyed his appetizer.My dinner was the lamb chops and we waited for a long time before they came out. They were ok just a little thin. My husband... More

We booked dinner at Spiga at the last minute and the staff was terrific about fitting us in. We hadn't been there before but chose it because it was highly rated. Now we know why!! It is tucked away just off the main street and really, it is a little jewel. Our meals were wonderful, especially the Tagliatelle Alla Bolognese... More

Decided to dine in here for my birthday lunch! We work around the corner and I happened to look for a new spot on TripAdvisor and I am happy I did! Quaint little gem. Lunch was delicious! I had the Cavatelli pasta dish and the rest of us agreed that we enjoyed our meals! We will definitely be back, especially... More
