- European Feelh28perezDined on 6/28/2014If you have ever eaten in Europe, then you know that the table is yours for the evening, so don't be rushed. One of the specials for night was salmon ravioli in pink sauce with a hint of lemon; the lasagna was meaty but not heavy and greasy, both amazing. The shrimp risotto was out of this world good. The chef cooked eggplant parmesan, which was not on the menu, for our guest. Our host, Pasquale, was gracious and friendly. He recommended several of the dishes and several of the desserts and was very patient with our wine selection and even recommended an amazing muscato for dessert. Spizzigo provides a solo cello player who played classical and contemporary pieces that set a very positive energy in the dining room. Going back soon.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- very nice...NanyVIPDined on 5/31/2014Truly enjoyed it although the musician/background music was a bit loud; and, unfortunately, a VERY odd couple sat next to us....just as loud or louder. However, this place is quite good.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Good food but made some mistakesdkoopeDined on 5/17/2014We had a 6:30 reservation and found a communion party of about 30 people going strong. Couldn't hear ourselves think let alone speak. They never should have taken our reservation if they knew the party was still going on. They didn't leave until 7:30. Because of the confusion, the service was less than great. I have a feeling that without the party, this place would have been much better.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Delicious! Delicious! Delicious!!OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIPDined on 5/9/2014Excellent food, presentation, and service all while being made to feel like extended family. Have been there a few times when in Miami and will always return.Special Features:
- Great Dining ExperienceMaiteDined on 4/19/2014Every one that waited on us were extremely nice & pleasant. The food was excellent & their Nutella Ice Cream is to die for.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- The food is well preparedSandiVIPDined on 3/24/2014The food is well prepared and served with a smile. You must try their fettuccine prepared inside a big round of Parmesan cheese. It's creamy yet light and yummy. Perfectly cooked pasta dishes specially the spinash ravioli filled with veal and the ones filled with lobster. If you like that slightly sweet sauce, try the pasta with pears and Gorgonzola sauce. Liked it a lot.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- The owner is fantastic as is foodMiami00Dined on 3/22/2014The food is fantastic. The gelato is terrific. The owner is welcoming and a lot of fun.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Food mostly excellentIntrepidNYtravelerDined on 2/15/2014The pasta is excellent here as well as the pizza that we tried (Fantastico). The focaccia for the table was excellent. The salad was a weak link -- tired brown lettuce pieces, although the portion size was very generous and the Caesar dressing was also excellent. The cappuccino was just fair. The service was fair. Everyone was very friendly but they seemed run off their feet and it took ages to get our food, to get coffee, to get our bill.Special Features:

- CG spotChoppyChopDined on 1/18/2014The Nutella ice cream is by far the best thing on the menu followed by the spaghetti carbonara. Their specialty appears to be the pastas. Skip the rest.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Spizzigo si one of the bestAdomarVIPDined on 12/23/2013Spizzigo si one of the best restaurants in town. Quality/price relation is excellent. Been there several times and I have been always very satisfied.Special Features:
- When I think of the best mealsMikeBVIPDined on 11/8/2013When 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- DisappointingsavoryeaterVIPDined on 11/6/2013This was our first time trying the restaurant. The food was bland and disappointing.

- Terrific neighborhood Italian spotUMdadDined on 10/4/2013We 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!Special Features:
- A Great EveningAlwaysEnjoyFoodVIPDined on 9/6/2013Just a special night with friends. The service and food were right on the mark. Everyone was attentive.

- Neighborhood GemReggaeMamaVIPDined on 9/1/2013Warm 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 ::-)Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great experience.BrianLovesToWineAndDineDined on 8/11/2013Found 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Cozy, comfy, tasty, casualOpenTable Diner Since 2010VIPDined on 7/30/2013Nice 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!Special Features:
- Wow!Roadwarrior5443VIPDined on 6/6/2013Spizzigo is a wonderful, wonderful gem! The owner prepared dinner for us as he would for his own family. I highly recommend Spizzigo!Special Features:
- Spizzigo - a keeperYourcpaVIPDined on 5/29/2013We 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Very good Italian food. TryOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 1/25/2013Very good Italian food. Try the fettucine alfredo which is made in a huge cheese ball right in front of you. Also had stuffed ravioli special which tasted great.
