Spiga - Vittal Mallaya Road, Bangalore
I tried the Red Wine chicken. There was only a hint of wine, and in only one mouthful. Other dishes included Alfredo chicken, lots of veg pasta stuff, and some tossed salad that no one touched. Some of the guys tried the Fajitas. They're nice, but don't order that as an only dish.
Soft drinks are served in large tumblers, and last through the meal.
Lighting is dim, with certain areas lit only with candle light. It has a kind of charm to it. You're also treated to Worldspace radio, tuned in to some good channels.
Spiga's forté is Italian. Stick with the pastas, steaks and garlic bread. You won't be dissappointed.
All in all, food was good, especially when you have good company. Prices were on the high side, but affordable.
Spiga is on Vittal Mallaya road, just off St. Mark's Road. It's easy to miss, so look for the Ritu Kumar showroom, Spiga's located on the first floor of the house to the right of that.
Blues rates it:
Food - very good
Service - depends on how crowded it is, but generally adequate
Price - On the high side. Don't make it a daily affair.
Decor - Great
Recommendation - Put it on your list of places to visit often.
Update: On a subsequent visit to Spiga, I had my credit card lifted, and several purchases were made off it. The experience has scared me away from visiting this place ever again.
