Though Spigolo Ristorante specializes in housemade entrees—an authentic approach known as casareccia—its daily specials suggest that "home" might be a thriving woodland. The chef prepares wild game such as boar, bison, and pheasant to supplement the menu’s meat and pasta mainstays. Tender bites of braised rabbit or fresh cod might balance out helpings of housemade gnocchi, which mingles with mushrooms in a cream sauce. Other dishes exhibit a calculated mix of sweet and savoury flavours—seared italian sausage arrives dressed in a wine-and-olive-oil drizzle, and an appetizer of prosciutto derives a honeyed touch from poached pears. Every meal begins with a focaccia pizza for the table to share or use for discus practice amid the burnt-orange walls and rustic stonework of the dining room.
