This was an excellent meal and the atmosphere was very elegant. The beef carpaccio was amazing. Although it is not directly on the water like many restaurants, the food was spectacular and more than made up for the missing "dine directly on the water" that many use to attract business.

We were shocked to find such an amazing Italian restaurant amongst so many French restaurants. Our dinner at Spiga was one of our favorites all week. We loved our entrees, and the atmosphere was comfortable and romantic.

This is not your usual Italian food. You will really love this place. a nice open air eating experience. My wife is italian and loved the gnoocies (sp?) I really enjoyed the seafood and pasta. It is a great place as a break from all the Frech food.

Sure Grand Case gets a lot of hype for their fine French cuisine, however I personally enjoyed this Italian restaurant. We traveled to St Marten during a down-season and chose to dine here on a Friday night. Given the great reviews, we thought to call ahead, however when we arrived we found that we were one of only 4 groups dining at the restaurant. The inside decor looked inviting with the polished wooden beams. It was a bit of a walk form the Grand Case parking area, but nothing unmanageable. It's just in a neighborhood and not waterfront so the only views to speak of are of the interior or your dining partners.

We got a great spot out on front porch with a gentle breeze flowing through. We opted for the mozzarella appetizer to start and the dish's freshness immediately caught me. The creaminess of the mozzarella was amazing and the olive oil enhanced the taste.

The main dish was the chicken breast in a sun-dried tomato sauce with some potato and asparagus on the side. It's not exactly the cliche italian dish, but that didn't really matter to me. The chicken was cooked to perfection, thoroughly yet not tough, and the simple seasoning tasted great. I did everything in my power not to lick the plate clean!

Maybe it was a case of high expectations. Maybe it was just a bad night. Whatever it was, our experience at Spiga was disappointing. The prices demand top notch food and service and that is not what we received. The waiter was somewhat indifferent. We had to nearly beg to keep the glasses filled.

The food was very good Italian food though nothing seemed particularly inspired. Not one of the four of us had something that would make you remember what you had two days later.

All that said, it was not horrible, just under performing. There are so many other places on the island that are worth trying, I'd skip Spiga.
