“Very good food”
Reviewed January 31, 2014 via mobile

We tried this restaurant last year, enjoyed it. We decided to go there and we're not disappointed in our choice. The food was excellent, but a bit pricey. The service was excellent. Make your own pasta was interesting. A really good choice for Italian food in SXM.

“Service not the best this year”
Reviewed January 30, 2014 via mobile

I cannot complain about the food. This restaurant knows how to cook Italian. I ordered organic wheat spaghetti and it was cooked to a perfect al dente. The red sauce was delicious and the meatballs were very tasty. My wife had a puffed pastry stuffed with lobster which was an appetizer they turned I to an entree for her. Very over the top.

But, I had a 6:30 PM reservation and we did not get our meals until after 8pm. Several tables near us who arrived after we were seated were done eating before we were served. While the waitress continued to apologize, it simply was not enough to make up for the disappointing service from the kitchen. A visit from the owner/manager would have been nice to at least show that he was concerned. A discount or an offer of a complimentary drink BEFORE we ordered after dinner drinks would have been appropriate. I am unsure if I will bring my brother and sister-in-law here next week when they arrive as there are too many outstanding restaurants on the island. iZi Ristorante Italiano was not one if them tonight.

“Delicious Italian food”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

lively restaurant, with terrific service, nice wine selection, pricy but definitely worth it!

Had the linguini with fish and it was worth it.

Definitely make reservations as the place is packed! especially if you are a large group.

“Mass Confusion”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

Firstly....the food is excellent with mammoth portions...a lot of waste. Perhaps half portions should be offered. The owner created mass confusion by having the wait staff jump all over the place. The poor waiters and waitresses didn't know which way to turn as he barked out orders and pointed fingers. Our last round of drinks had vodka and Bernadine...no orange juice....so we had to take them up to the bar for some mix. There was adequate staff...just lack of good management. It could be an even better restaurant with a little bit of organization....price and food quality is excellent. Calamari , lasagna and veal are delish.......Reservations are strongly recommended..or you could be waiting for hours, as they hate to turn anyone away and have chairs lined up in the outdoor area..which adds even more confusion...and raises the noise level......
