Spizzigo - a keeper
We have been to Sizzigo three times each was superb. The owner and his family work in the restaurant so if a guest wants something special it is taken care of. The linguine with white clams was wonderful. The pasta was properly cooked, not pasty or hard - just right. The clams were small and opened with the proper amount of sauce. I prefer a heavy garlic and ordered it that way and it was prepared perfectly in accordance with my desires. On another visit I ordered a calzone which differed from the one on the menu. It was prepared as I asked but was cold on the inside. The waiter suggested that I try the pizza instead as reheating the calzone would ruin it. He was right. A wonderful and concientious waiter. Visit Spizzigo you will be happy!

Spizzigo is a wonderful, wonderful gem! The owner prepared dinner for us as he would for his own family. I highly recommend Spizzigo!

Cozy, comfy, tasty, casual
Nice father-daughter duo running the front of house and tasty pasta at reasonable prices. Recommend the pasta carbonara and spaghetti alla vongole. A tad too much olive oil, but the food was superb otherwise. Do save room for the Nutella ice cream!

Found this restaurant through Trip Advisor while spending one night in Coral Gables. Was looking for something with good food and wine close by our hotel (Biltmore) and fairly casual. This surpased our expectations. The service was top notch. The food, epecially the salad with melted brie and pears, was exemplery and the wine (Chianti) was excellent.

Warm friendly feeling, with casual elegance. The bread was delicious, not to mention the gnocchi, lasagna and pizza. Dessert was the icing on the cake - tiramisu, homemade coconut gelato, and nutella ice cream.
My family has peanut allergies and Spizzigo is a must for family dining ::-)

A Great Evening
Just a special night with friends. The service and food were right on the mark. Everyone was attentive. The owner was friendly and made our experience relaxing and special. The cello player was the icing on the cake. Thank you for a great evening.

Terrific neighborhood Italian spot
We took our college daughter and three friends for dinner on a busy Friday night with last minute reservations. The food was really great traditional Italian fare with reasonable wine prices. The cello player created nice ambiance, but were also able to have a great conversation with the girls without shouting. The service could have been a bit faster, but were extremely friendly and attentive. We will absolutely be back...everyone in the group loved Spizzigo!

When I think of the best meals
When I think of the best meals I had in Italy they were all simple preparations with fresh ingredients. That's exactly what our meal at Spizzigo was on Friday night. My wife and I split an octopus salad. The octopus was very tender, perfectly prepared. The pasta and clams - light and tasty. Simple Italian cuisine at its best.
