The food here is some of the best italian food in Manhattan period. The chef is very innovative and is constantly changing the menu per season. There is a eggplant meatball dish that is outstanding. Last fall, they did a venison ravioli with bing cherries...More

Very expensive for what we ordered, the food was not that good and the waiter was unaccommodating to what we would of liked to order. There are so many other options for Italian food on the UES. Go to one of them instead.

We had a superb meal here. All three courses were excellent and the service top notch. We are regular visitors to NY and rarely have we had a better meal. Buzzy atmosphere yet not too loud for conversation.

Spigolo is an Italian-inspired restaurant on the Upper East Side of New York City. Opened in January 2005, Spigolo has gained acclaim from both devoted customers and restaurant critics. Influenced by his masterful incorporation of seasonal ingredients, Joseph D'Angelo's menu represents a culinary union of contemporary American cooking and traditional Italian cuisine. Spigolo is known as much for its warm, intimate atmosphere and its welcoming staff devoted to attentive service and genuine hospitality, as it is for its food. Come experience Spigolo for yourself.
