THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Spiga D'Oro Restaurant Review

: Though located in a strip mall in an innocuous neighborhood not far from the airport, you can’t ignore the food here. The d├ęcor is fairly anonymous too, consisting of Italian scenes and landscape paintings against pale walls, and sparkling white napery. The waiters are courtly, and the owner goes to Italy every summer to gather recipes. The long list of specials covers the Italian map, and you can touch down at Naples with a dish of fried eggplant layered with Mascarpone cheese, or big, tender mussels in a white or red sauce. The hearty cuisine of Emilia-Romagna finds parallels in fettuccine with a pink cream sauce that comprises mushrooms, peas and ham. A grilled whole snapper could be straight out of the Adriatic, but if you harbor a love for old-fashioned veal Parmesan, this is the place. You can skip dessert, except for fresh fruit with pineapple sorbet, but if you brought a fine Italian wine with you, you might want to finish with a Strega or a grappa.
