Miami New Times' Description
Not much has changed here since the pretty, romantic, slightly secluded Italian trattoria opened more than a decade ago. Chef Saele Cantoni and his veteran crew are still baking the breads and foccacias, rolling out pasta doughs, and preparing desserts on premises. The result is fresh, uncomplicated, moderately priced Italian cuisine. Don't miss the quadretti with Portobello mushrooms, tomatoes, truffle oil, and thin shavings of Parmesan; grouper baked in béchamel; and a char-grilled bone-in lamb steak cut from the leg, marinated in olive oil with garlic and rosemary, and gloriously infused with full meaty, slightly gamy flavor. A voluptuously creamy ricotta cheesecake with strawberry sauce is the recommended dessert. The Italy-happy wine list is concise, service experienced, ambiance unbeatable - especially on the wraparound outdoor porch. Familiarity can sometimes breed contempt, but at Spiga it brings only a sense of contentment and gratitude.
Tips from foursquare
Long wait, bad service, even worse food. Double thumbs down
A quaint and romantic Italian getaway from the Beach, order the quadretti with truffle oil or ravioli verde for a taste of their homemade pastas. Get a slice of Key Lime pie to end the meal.
Their food is amazing, the fresh pasta and sauces. And the atmosphere is lovely. Sit outside if possible. Try the Quadretti con Portobello and a vintage pinot noir.....!!
The Quadretti is great! Good service and fair price. Also a nice location!
