Izi's never disappoints unless they are to busy to get a reservation. Their unique menu of pastas and sauces ensures a combination sure to please everyone. If pasta is not your thing you will be more than satisfied with their fish and other Italian specialties. The calamari and gnocchi are family favorites and always terrific. Save some room for their... More

In 2015 I reviewed Izi in Simpson Bay, St. Maarten. This year we are back again in St. Maarten and visited Izi. We were delighted that the quality has not changed. I had penne pasta with Alfredo sauce and shrimp and my husband ordered the swordfish. We were both very happy with our meal. The service is excellent and the... More

I know Italian food. My mother breast fed me. Milk out of the right breast. Minestrone from the left. I have eaten Italian food for over sixty years in multiple countries including Italy, the rest of Western Europe and the premiere American east coast Italian restaurants. This experience was phenomenal by every measure. Simple food, well prepared with perfect taste... More

This was our favorite meal in Simpson Bay. They offer a lot of simple pasta options and combinations (which my wife loves) as well as some more complicated options. Everything was delicious, including the wine!

We found IZI to be a very good Italian restaurant. The restaurant is very nicely designed and decorated. The meals are very good. you basically get to pick your sauces and noodles from a ton of options. Everything including service is very good.

Best pastas, great friendly service, Flatbreads are must to have, desserts are to die for. Probably best Italian restaurant on the island, highly recommended.

After a few nights of rum, seafood, and Caribbean meals on the island of Sint Marteen, we needed a break and our fall back is often Italian food. Following the reviews of others, we found ourselves at Izi in Simpson Bay and were pleased that we did. After a few stops along the crowded main street, a few rum cocktails,... More

We eat here several times during our annual 2 week stay in SXM. Tonight we had 9 in our party and they graciously split the bill for each of the 4 families present. Marco is the best--he explains the menu and prepares food according to your taste. We always leave feeling good about the overall experience. This is definitely one... More

One of the few restaurants with ample parking. Izi has homemade pasta and a great selection of Italian dishes. Reservations are recommended as the restaurant fills up quickly. The wait staff is friendly, efficient and very helpful. When you are seated at your table you are given a pager to signal the wait staff for more bread, the check, etc.... More
