    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!

    I chose this restaurant to entertain a client and I was not disappointed. The service from the moment we arrived until we left was outstanding. Our waiter was very knowledgable of the menu and made great suggestions. Everyone got something different and all were delicious. Some had steak others fish and pasta. Very course was superb. I will be sure to return and my client was very happy when we left.

    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¡

We would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a quiet, romantic and excellent dining experience. And the tiramisu was the best I've ever had.

    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.

    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.

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!

    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.
