In this exquisite setting, owners Vince and Connie Cultraro provide splendid cuisine to the best clientele in the whole valley. Vince is a multiple award winning Chaine des Rotisseur chef who has cooked for prime ministers and other heads of state, ambassadors, movie and sports stars, and international business leaders. As hostess, Connie ensures each and every guest receives impeccable service. At La Spiga, you won’t find any pre-prepared foods in our kitchen; everything is done the old fashioned way. Our full-flavored sauces are naturally reduced. Our meats are natural too, with no hormones or antibiotics. We grind our own meats, make our own sausages, flavor our own oils, fillet our own fish which we fly in daily, and offer our customers the top in freshness and quality. We choose our purveyors based on top quality ingredients of the highest standard. We use only naturally filtered water in the entire building. We use only sea salt and whenever possible organic products, we do not buy meats or fish that have been injected with water and sodium. Only line caught wild fish, and organic eggs from free range chickens.
