“Lovely”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

It's a tiny and cozy restaurant. The staff is friendly and efficient. We didn't have reservation, but the manager rapidly accommodate us. We had the carpaccio appetizer and pastas for the entree. We finished with a dessert combination then espressos. Everything delicious. They also have a very good wine menu.

“Nothing special and very expensive”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Portions are t-i-n-y hence I don't see why people say this place is good value for money. A main pasta dish is about $20 and I would guess you get something like 60-70 grams of spaghetti? A starter of grilled calamari has 4 tiny pieces and is $12. The tiramisu' is totally ordinary. It's not bad overall, but the food is just totally regular and I can't justify what they charge for it. A rip off.

“Great Italian”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

I was almost put off going here because of the mixed reviews I read on this site but my family and I love Italian food and it was walking distance from our hotel so we booked and went last week.
The service was excellent , the menu what one would expect and the food delicious.
It is fairly small but friendly and relaxed but still smart , there isn't a full bar ( no spirits or cocktails )but a wide selection of wines and soft drinks are available.

“Excelent food, reasonable prices”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

We went to Spiga Restaurant on our recent trip to Miami beach.

Location:
The location is close to the ocean drive. They do have seating on the patio and inside. We went for the patio, which was nice and allowed to observe people walking nearby. However there is some noise from the road, since Collins Avenue runs directly in front of the patio. It didn't bother us.

Food:
Since we were not that hungry, we skipped appetizers and only had entrees and one dessert to share. We both ordered pasta, which was done perfectly. The pasta and sauces were homemade - we could tell that. All about the food was excelent. The tiramisu was also excellent. Spiga also has a huge wine list, but we didn't order wine.

Price:
You need to remember, this is Miami beach were entrees in good restaurants usually run from 25 dollars (for pasta) up to 70 dollars for steak or lobster. Keeping this in mind, we found Spigna to be very reasonalbe priced. Pastas are around 15-19 dollars, chicken, veal and beef are from 24-35. Considering the quality of the food, this was a real bargain.

Service:
Service was friendly, but not so (too) much in you face as on Ocean drive. They brought out our meal about 10 minutes after we ordered. So they were pretty quick.

Overall:
We would highly recommend Spiga to everyone. Its on of the best value location in the Collins Avenue / Ocenadrive area, I have seen so far
