  • "If you like Italian, you will love this place. We always make at least one visit here on all trips to south beach. Superb service, wonderful food with good options. Wine and food reasonably priced and for relatively large portions. Sitting outside in good weather is very pleasant and entertaining at times with the pedestrian traffic on the sidewalk."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Had only moderate expectations for the restaurant, but they were well exceeded on all counts. Lovely haven in the midst of a tumultuous South Beach setting. Particularly charming for adults who want to escape some of the local "noise". Surprisingly reasonable prices for exceptionally good food. Wish they had a branch closer to where we lived."

  • "I always appreciate an opportunity for homemade pasta, and yours was delicious! Thank you for a pleasant evening. We couldn't have asked for anything better. Spiga prepared our best meal in Miami! Thank you!"

  • "We spent 9 nights in Sobe. We ate in many high end places that I won't namedrop. We dined at Spiga twice. The first was with a large party of foodies, all pleasantly surprised with food and relieved to have attentive service. Treated us like their best local customers and not tourists. We ate indoors only because some construction on the street tarnished the view a bit. Indoors is restful but not sleepy. Food is flavorful and yet delicate. Seafood fresh and cooked perfectly. We returned for our last night, just the two of us, knowing we woukd end our journey on a perfect note. Note: there is an extensive list of specials well beyond the menu listed online. Plan to have a cocktail nearby beforehand. This is fine Italian food."

  • "This is a short walk from SB and is a great place for a dinner for two. If you have a bigger party this may not be for you as it is a small in door eating area, but for a quiet getaway from the hustle of SB, this is the place. Great wine list and food selections. All was very good except filet was a tad on the tough side, pastas and desserts were outstanding."

  • "We had dinner in the Spiga and we found a very nice restaurant. I had "ossobuco and risotto" and my husband had "tagliatelle a la bolognese" and both was perfect. Every pasta is handmade there! The ambience is clean and elegant. The staff is nice and the manager was present to see if everything is OK. I recomend and worth the visit!"

  • "This is my second visit to Spiga - both during the Miami Boat show with clients. Both times my clients raved about the food. Will be back during next year's show."

  • "I've been to Spiga quite a few times and it's been one of my favorites in South Beach. This time I brought out of town guests. When our entrees came, one of the orders was incorrect. They took it back and 3 of us ate while the 4th waited for 15 minutes for the correct order. All the waitress did was tell my friend that there were 2 specials on the menu and the kitchen made the wrong one. How about offering a free glass of wine, or free dessert rather than act like this is a totally acceptable mistake? She was very focused on a table of 14 she was also serving."

  • "often times its all about the server.... the first person to visit out table was rough and not inviting. The waitress though was fantastic and rescued the evening... She was engaging, charming and patient. now on to the food.... Fantastic is the best adjective.. It's creative and tasty... We ordered apps and firsts and it was so good we orders a second to share. The handmade pastas are great. They are clear and upfront about which are fresh made and which are purchased. small venue, se be prepared to be right near another table.... No American personal space.... We ate inside.... The patio looked great too, but full by the time we go there."

We arrived promptly at 9:00 p.m. & were greeted by two friendly gentlemen *whom appeared to be owner /managers. They quickly showed us to our table which was already waiting for us in their outdoor patio! . Our waitress was Outstanding! She knew exactly how to manage serving time between starters, appetizers and entree's. The FOOD was superb! Great portions, excellent flavor, cooked to our specific requests. Wine list was good, dessert was amazing! & All the ladies received a rose on our way out! Thanks SPIGA management and staff for making our VALENTINE"s Dinner perfect!

  • "I have eaten at Spiga several times over the years. I go back because the quality is consistent, the food is very good, the atmosphere is very pleasant, and the management and staff make you feel welcome and appreciated. Spiga does what every restaurant should do, treat it's customers well. I will definately continue to eat here when in South Beach."

  • "Tis was our first time dining here. We went based on previous reviews and were not disappointed. The choices were good. The pasta was fresh. The restaurant itself was very quaint (we sat inside. It is right on Collins so the traffic noise outside might turn some off, but that is SB). We would definitely dine here again."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "Spiga is such a wonderful, quaint restaurant where the dishes are divine! The handmade pasta is lovingly prepared in many ways- we had the special pappardelle with shrimp, arugula, & cherry tomatoes and the lasagna bolognese. Trust me, it will be difficult to choose your favorite & you'll be back! Finish your evening with their signature banana strudel and you're all set!"

  • "We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at an inside table. You can dine outside but the street is not inviting or quiet. Inside, however, the tables are not too close and the service is very good. All the pasta (except spaghetti) is homemade and that was the best part of the meal. And you can ask them to mix and match the different listed pastas to enjoy your favorite pasta in your favorite dish!"

  • "Choose Spiga based on reviews from another website (Tripadvisor) and wasn't disappointed. The dishes were all phenomenal. Being NYE, there was a fixed menu - but it didn't disappoint. The prices were higher the usual (not unexpected) but it is definitely a splurge type of restaurant and evening. Our waiter was exceptional - engaging, funny, always attentive and prompt. We would love to go back - but live too far away!"

  • "Some friends were in town for just a few days and staying on South Beach. Using Urban Spoon I found Spiga based on the % of people who liked it, and used the online "make a reservation" that same evening for 6:45PM. our waiter introduced himself, told us about their specials, and took our drink order. His recommendation of homemade pasta was spot on, and we ordered different pasta dishes including the Quadretti, Pappardelle, and Linguine. All were fresh and enjoyable along with Caesar and house salads. We sat and talked for quite a while before enjoying deserts of Chocolate Tort and some kind of peach something. Our bill was most fair for what we ordered, and we will certainly go back to SPIGA Ristorante Italiano again."

We were so pleased we will go back everytime we are here. The service was fantastic and the gnocchi and strawberry risotto was amazing. If your in south beach definiaey try this place!"

  • "Spiga offers an intimate environment and quality cuisine - a moderately priced dining experience where equivalent restaurants are much more expensive. The deserts are yummy! Try the ricotta cheesecake and tiramisu. We sat inside. The outdoor dining in front is in very close proximity to the street."
