Quality ingredients, quality service, quality ambience, all made for a very pleasant evening. The various cured meat appetizers, and the risotto, were worthy of special mention.

We ate a fabulous meal. Everyone enjoyed their dishes which ranged from fettucini and mushrooms to veal to octopus. The only negative we found was the lack of lighting and the noise level. The wait staff was great and helpful in pointing out delicious dishes.

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.
