“Fabulous Italian Flare in Grand Case”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

This is by far the best italian on the island. We've been coming to the island for over 1 years and found them about 4 years ago and go at least twice every year. All of the pasta is made fresh on site. I think every meal we've had there is top notch. The desserts are all fresh made. It's great to have a an Italian accompaniment to the fabulous french food in Grand Case. The wine list is extensive. B prepared to eat European style - unhurried and without rush - and enjoy every minute of it. Reservation mandatory in season.

“Stick to basics”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

This is a nice restaurant in Grand Case. Frankly, it was not as great as we thought it would be. The service is nice, the food is average. Stick with basic pasta dishes and basic salads. The ravioli was odd and seemed out of step with real Italian fare.

My husband and I have been coming to Grand Case for 20 years. Trust me this is an amazing restaurant ! We have been here every year since they opened and have never been disappointed. We always make sure to eat here at least twice!

“Wonderful evening, make sure you book ahead!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

The food here was delicious and the service was wonderful. We eat with 2 teenagers who are pretty adventurous with their food and everyone was happy. It was also a lovely change to have Italian food as mostly everywhere in Grand Case serves French.

“Best restaurant in St. Martin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

My finance and I have been traveling to St. Martin every year for the last three years. One of our favorite things about St. Martin is the exquisite dining options. I was hesitant to make a reservation at Spiga at first because I didn't know what to expect from an Italian restaurant in a French St. Martin. However, we were told by a couple who had been coming here for a while that is was a place not to miss. We ate a Spiga three times during our most recent trip, and every meal was amazing!

The service here is great; however, make sure to book a reservation in advance because it is a small place that usually books up during high season. The food is elevated, creative Italian that works in local ingredients and seafood. However, their meat dishes are fantastic as well. If the have the veal chop special when you are there, I highly recommend ordering it. If you are traveling from the States, make sure to bring lots of US dollars with you. If you pay with cash in dollars, they do one to one dollars for euros which makes the meal a great value. The wine list impressive, and the mark up is minimal. They have a great selection of both French and Italian wines. If you have any questions about the wine, just ask Lara to help find the perfect bottle for your palate.
