Spiga was opened in December of 1995 by Chef Roberto Legrand. The simplicity and personality he’s created in its dishes are accredited to its long-term success, along with its intimate and charming atmosphere, reminding us of old Italian villas.

Spiga prides itself on serving the best pasta you can find in Miami to a diverse crowd – from famous artists, musicians and businessmen, to its closest friends and family. The pasta is handmade every morning with carefully chosen ingredients, making your dinner and dining experience a truly memorable one.

Nice restaurant , Very kind staff, food as expected and the way it should be. Miami Spice menu well done. Outside of it the veal al fungui secchi very well presented and tasty.

Spiga is excellent. We’ve been there 3 times now over the last couple of years while vacationing in Miami Beach. Service is very prompt. Tried the Bruschetta for the first time this visit...very good. Prosciutto is a nice touch. Caesar Salad flavorful, dressing not too potent. Penne Arrabiatta was spicy and delicious. My wife’s Pappardelle al Telefono di Beth was creamy goodness. Our young children ate their spaghetti heartily. We will definitely be back!

my friend and I decided to have the Miami spice menu. Miami spice menu usually includes an appetizer and entree and dessert. The restaurant added some nice bonuses and included the soup of the day and a glass of house wine.

The food was excellent starting with the zucchini soup then the Caprese salad and then we had the tagliatelle with shrimp. My friend had the lemon sorbet for dessert and I had the flan which was amazing.

The service was excellent.

I have been going to Spiga for 20 years and am pleased to say that the quality has remained consistently outstanding in all respects
I was very pleased to see them reopen after the lockdown and look forward to spending many more enjoyable evenings at the restaurant.

What a hidden gem! Last minute reservation to feed a hungry family turned out to be some of the best pasta we have ever experienced. The pappardelle was exceptional. My daughters gnocchi was also fantastic. The cloud like texture was something I’ve never experienced with gnocchi.

Highly recommend if in South Beach.

Every time we visit Spiga, we are delighted by the friendly service and bountiful, delicious dishes! The homemade pasta is divine as is the seafood! Dalia is such a wonderful server and makes us feel welcome and always had good suggestions for dinner. IWe had the snapper francaise special and the papardelle con porcini and they were divine! The Italian wine selections are lovely and unique, we chose the hard-to-find Boscarelli Montepukciano, which perfectly complemented our meal. We can’t wait to visit again soon!

We’ve eaten at Spiga before and made a reservation for Valentines Day. We were surprised that there was no special welcome, flower on the table or mention of this romantic holiday. Looking though the menu we saw a valentines special on the last page but our server never referred to it. I ordered the shrimp and fettuccine (Fettuccine con Gamberi +asparagi)and my husband ordered the spaghetti ai fruti di mare. After having a very ordinary Luna salad, we were both disappointed with our entres. My fettuccine was wide limp noodles with pink sauce instead of the fettuccine with white wine, olive oil and diced tomatoes. My husbands seafood did not taste fresh and was overcooked.
I did ask to speak with the manager, Jose Espinal, who sent my dish back with no apology or discussion. I received a penne dish which was undercooked but by that time we were both disappointed both in the quality of food and customer service.

We thought of Spiga as special from our past visit. We do not plan to return.

Very good food for a vegan restaurant. Tried many vegan restaurants in NYC and they are all terrible. So this is a plus point. Restaurant was recommended by business friend and very hyped up. We were very excited to try but food was simple. Nothing to exciting for my taste. Not a fan of truffle and that was on the menu for various dishes.

All the dishes were far from classic Italian: osso buco tough; pasta with porcini... not porcini and little flavor. Lovely place bad food

Service was a little on the slow side. Water wasn’t refilled even after asking twice. It was for a birthday dinner and we ordered a special dessert and the person who delivered it just put it on the table without a word and an unlit candle in it. Not so special!!!

The service was good, the food more than amazing.
I had the seafood risotto and my boyfriend got the grilled calamari as appetizer and tuna steak with pasta.
He asked rear, it was overcooked but tasty, we mentioned but the waitress, seemed not to care.
If was not for the waitress we got, I definitely would give a 5 stars, she was not a happy camper, I asked for cheese above my risotto and she put me black pepper, when I said “excuse me I asked for cheese”, she replied “oh yes, true!” than she added the cheese and not even excused herself, again with a unhappy face...
Overall the place is amazing, just hope you don’t get her also, as your waitress!!!

The restaurant was an authentic Italian. We enjoyed our food, chicken dishes, fish and pasta. We shared the mixed dessert for 2 but it would be fine for a taster for 3 or 4 people. The staff were friendly and efficient. We will definitely return.

Beautiful outdoor seating. Attentive servers and simple italian food. The gnocchis were melt in your mouth delicious and the liguini with clams was a little tough, could have used more garlic/sauce and additional clams. Overall good value.
