    We were new visitors to Miami. My wife had grilled Mahi Mahi and I ha lobster. Ravioli in a scallop cream sauce. Both very good. I had Tira miss and my wife a passion fruit meringue. Service was attentive without being intrusive. Every one in restaurant seemed happy with meals and service.

    We were looking for a neiburhood authentic Italian and were lucky enough to find this lovely restaurant. We sat outside and enjoyed freshly made pasta whilst watching the neibourhood pass by. The waiters were great and recommended dishes based on what we liked, can definitely recommend the lobster ravioli. Great wine list and a place to escape the hustle and bustle of Miami, will return.

    We are so glad because at this time there was no annoying people trying to take advantage again! Everything was perfect as always! We happened to be in Spiga the same night as "traveler 16" and his wife, seated very close to them. They made an embarrassing scene screening and yelling to the manager and the server, totally out of control. We felt ashame of them!!! This guy and his wife almost ruined our entirely dinner with their behavior. People like them should consider to go to places that match their class! We have visited Spiga every year for the last 10 years and is ALWAYS THE SAME GREAT PLACE WITH DELIVIOUS FOOD AND EXCELENT SERVICE AND MANAGEMENT. THANK YOU SPIGA!

    We went here based on Some decent reviews. Wow what a mistake. Food was definitely microwaved and tasted like Mac and cheese out of a box. And after sending the one meal back the manager tried to charge us and said it was our fault for ordering it. Then the waiter started yelling at my wife. Do not go here unless you want a overpriced, terrible meal with rude service

    We arrived in Miami after a very long day of travel and wanted Italian. I didn't feel like doing any of the new trendy spots that all the same people recommend. This is a true gem! The restaurant itself is so beautiful. The service superb, and the food was very good. I would highly recommend any of homemade pastas. The burrata and tomato appetizers was very good, however needed some seasoning. My pasta was incredibly prepared al dente and my husbands veal was jus ok. needed a little more to the sauce. Overall, however we enjoyed our dinner. The service was incredibly warm and welcoming and I would highly recommend this gem of a restaurant!

    Went there with family (2 Kids). We had a nice table outside. Food was great but the service was unfortunately not very good. Our server seemed not motivated at all. Think it was an isolated problem and therefore i would recommend the restaurant again.

    We spent a week at the Ritz in Key Biscayne, FL and drove up to South Beach for a nice dinner. SPIGA was the perfect find. A very intimate, comfortable setting. The entre staff was super friendly and got the sense they just wanted us to enjoy a great dining experience. Right amount of energy. The food was out of this world. The Caprese salad was to die for. The pasta was heavenly. We will go back again if ever in Miami.

    What a great find very close to our hotel in South Beach! We dined on the beautiful porch outside and had a wonderful time. The service was top notch and the food was wonderful. We had salad, cannelini bean soup followed by lobster ravioli and red snapper. The pasta was perfectly prepared with a wonderful and rich cream sauce. The red snapper was presented beautifully with a tomato sauce, broccoli and potato wedges. The whole experience was wonderful - highly recommended!

    We enjoyed our evening on the porch of Spiga. A nice small Italian restaurant, good wine selection and authentic food. We had spinach & andives salad with gorgonzola; chicken salad; linguine with gambas and asparagus and fettucini carbonara - all very good¡ The owner went out of his way to make our night special - although it was not on the menu he arranged a digestive for us - courtesy of the house¡

    I found Spiga restaurant from a South Beach Miami website. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list. The wine I ordered was from their special wine list for that evening and it was superb. Although I ordered a rather simple meal that evening, I was not disappointed - it was excellent. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the Miami South Beach area.

    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.

    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.

    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.
