La Spiga Ristorante Italiano in a Tuscan Villa setting. Owners Vince and Connie Cultraro are celebrating the success of their new restaurant that they built from the ground up. A loyal clientele that enjoyed the intimate original Palm Desert location is delighted with the elegant and spacious dining rooms and patios. Multiple-award winning Chaine des Rotisseur Master Chef Vince is dedicated to presenting an innovative yet traditional Italian menu and an exceptional inventory of the finest wines. Everything is fresh and most house made. From the moment you enter and are greeted by Connie, you are in a world of beautiful woods, posh fabrics, and mountain views. The patios are surrounded by gardens of herbs, fruits, and vegetables, and more dining areas with two gazebos for special events, fireplace and a pizza oven, and a putting green! Many patrons come to watch the sunset while enjoying pizza and a glass of wine. The cozy lounge features a marble bar and an exhibition wine cellar. The menu features and cold appetizers, entrées of New Zealand lamb, free-range chicken, veal, beef, seafood and, of course, pasta. Their specialty bruschetta is served hot. Dessert and brandy is a grand finale. Open for dinner Monday to Saturday.
