Honestly, we were expecting something fun and exciting from all the reviews. The menu online was different then what we saw at the restaurant. It seemed like they doubled the price and it was pretty pricy in my opinion. We spent $40 on pasta. We get that it’s handmade pasta but $40 and no salad or sides included is ridiculous.

In my reservation, I indicated that it was my boyfriend and my New Years and Anniversary. This is one of the only restaurants that did not acknowledge this or even thank us for dining with them.

The ambiance was very cold and snooty. They had us sit outside at a small table when there were plenty of seats on the inside of the restaurant.

They didn’t ask us if we wanted to order any drinks - cause I’m assuming they made a judgement and assumed that we couldn’t afford it? Wow.

Our waitress only stopped by twice and didn’t even ask how our meal was. The bus boy mainly did most of the service for us. They were one of the few restaurants that weren’t full on New Years. Not a surprise.

I also do not like how they automatically added gratuity onto our bill - it was just the two of us at dinner.

I will definitely not come back to this establishment or recommend it.

We spent $100 on two pasta dishes. Worse money spent. Very unhappy guest.

Great menu, excellent food, with reasonable prices in great location. Good for locals and tourists that demand better than what Ocean Drive has to offer but still want a little South Beach feel. Excellent atmosphere from the linens on the tables to the interior restaurant and bar space and very nice patio. Repeat satisfied customer.

My friends remembered the paper thin ravioli when she lived here. As I child, I was taught that one must be able to read a newspaper through the ravioli dough for it to be right. Of course, I had to have it and it did not disappoint. We had a lovely, quiet corner table on the porch. The service was OK. On my Open Table reservation I had indicated that this was my husband’s 75th birthday and they provided no recognition of this event.

Went to SPIGA on Sunday 26th November. First impression wasn’t good. The restaurant was not busy and even though we had a reservation and explicitly stated that we didn’t want to sit by the door, my girlfriend and I were only offered a table by the door or one squashed next to the bar (nearest table to the toilet)! This was compounded by other couples arriving later and being offered better tables. Food was ok, but nothing special and like most things in Miami startling over priced. I must say one waitress did listen to our concerns when we raised them and did offer us a free limoncello and asked if we wanted a dessert. However, not a peep from the manager. Verdict, wouldn’t go back.

This little spot is phenomenal. It's so good that we went twice while visiting South Beach. The crab ravioli with saffron cream sauce is out of this world, as was the veal. The service was wonderful and overall can't wait to return.

Had very nice meal. Sat outside, started to rain hard but sporadically midway through meal. Staff were very quick to drop plastic guards to protect us from rain, allowing us to stay outside. Grouper special was excellent. Too full to try dessert. Decent though not extensive choice of wines by glass. Service was outstanding.

A return visit which didn't disappoint. Good service and delightful food. We ate on the lovely front porch. A heavy downpour didn't impact our experience in the least. Staff were quick to respond to the sudden change in weather, putting storm blinds in place even before the rain began. Very impressive. Delicious Antipasto Misto (a plate for one easily served two of us), and Crab and Shrimp Ravioli were highlights. And the Focaccia is simply to die for. Highly recommended.

Une cuisine sympathique, mais sans invention. Une ambiance décontractée et agréable: le meilleur atout du restaurant.
Une mauvaise note pour la finale: on commande un vin de dessert (sucré) en précisant pas de bulles. Le vin servi est pétillant. On n'y touche pas: pas de question de la serveuse: elle le laisse sur la facture.
Dommage. Ce n'est pas professionnel. ...

 (Atlanta)·Dined on September 2, 2017

We came here due to the high reviews here on Trip Advisor. Major disappointment that did not come close to the $110 for two that we paid. I don't mind paying a high fee for a meal and have paid well over $200 just for the two of us, so long as it's worth it. Spiga is not one of those restaurants.

It started out decent with a pretty good Caprese salad and the Luna salad which featured arugula pears and tomatoes. The main courses however, bland is the only way to describe them. Especially my main course, a 'special' featuring eggplants, tomatoes and smoked ricotta. I've never had smoked ricotta so naturally I wanted to try something different. There was absolutely no smokiness to the cheese at all. It was just shredded ricotta. My entire dish was just bland, devoid of really much in the way of flavor. It was obvious the pasta was fresh, but the sauce, eggplant and the entire dish, just bland.

My wife got a pasta with portabella mushrooms and that was better, but that doesn't say a whole lot.

I expect to pay more when I visit Miami Beach, but I also expect to get a good meal. There are AMAZING Italian restaurants in South Beach and I've reviewed a few here. This is not one of those places, spend your money elsewhere that has really good food. So disappointed.

Stop. Do not waste your time or money
1. Nothing special decor, staff
2. Meat market greeting from street
3. Boring menu with $5.00 extra for a vegetable with all entrees
4. $3 extra to split a salad in the kitchen
5. Dont know how good food is will not waste my time, energy or money on a joint like this

I will never regret coming here for after theater and PreBirthday dinner. I hope to return many times. Superb! Small romantic, authentic cuisine, nice, quiet, modern old flair, casual elegant but still with its white tablecloths and perfect refined atmosphere yet without braking your wallet. Highly highly recommend.
