During the famous La Gondola ristorante 2003-2010 in Cupecoy beach St Maarten, IZI was launched in 2009. Totally hip. Totally cool spin on Italian Cuisine. A perfect marriage between tradition and contemporary. IZI has been locals & tourists favourite.
The food was absolutely delicious. Staff and manager very attentive. I have zero complaints about this place. You must go there when visiting St.Maarten. The drinks as well were tasty. I highly recommend the lobster raviolis and their salmon dish.
We saw the sign outside for a Lasagna special on Tuesday so decided to eat here, however that was just a lunch special. However the food and service made us forget that very quickly. We sat at the table and our waitress Samatha brought us...our cocktails, my wife had Negroni for her first time and it was excellent. I asked if the Mojito was good and Sam said yes and boy was she right. We then ordered Calamari appetizer, I have to say probably the best we've ever had, dip them in the sauce and it was taken to another level. I was looking at the menu and undecided when my wife spotted they had Osso Bucco on the TV screen that was showing all the beaches on SXM and some of the dishes, so I decided to have that as it's my favorite and looked good. My wife went for the Lobster Ravioli. The food came out and we were blown away again, there were 12 pieces of Raviloi and the taste was amazing. I tasted one but couldn't give it a 10 out of 10 as I was enjoying my Osso Bucco so much, I think we both rated our dishes 12 out of 10, they were so good. I can always eat dessert but I was so satisfied with what I had eaten, I decided to end the night on a high. We had such a great experience we told the manager we were disappointed as we planned visiting a different restaurant every night and this was so good we reserved a table for Friday, our last night on the island. We also had a couple glasses of wine and when the check came I was pleasantly surprised, it was about the same as an average restaurant we go to in our home state of Florida. We did eat here when we visited the island 2 trips ago but I think it was closed when we came after Irma. For sure this will be on our list to come back to every time, make sure you spend a night here early in the week so you can come again later.More
My boyfriend and I went to Izi for dinner and we had a fantastic time! The owner, as well as all the staff, were extremely accommodating and did everything they could to make our meal and time at the restaurant the best it could be....The crab cakes were amazing and I would definitely recommend them as an appetizer. If I were to stay in SXM longer I surely would've made a second visit.More
The food at this restaurant is tasty with nice size portions. The decor is very modern and cool. The wait staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The owner came over to see how everything was as well. Best Italian restaurant. Highly recommend.
My family and I were craving pasta and we decided to try izi for the first time. Honestly, the best decision we could make. The service was incredible. Our waitress was a beautiful kind chinese lady she introduced herself as kelly super friendly lady.We ordered...seafood pasta and it was super delicious. You will not be dissapointed
Great food, great service, great ambiance.....
Great job IZI!
Samantha and Bernice are such beautiful souls, so sweet. We were so happy to have them serve us. Food was delicious, I had the cheese ravioli and 10/10 recommend. If you get my girls consider yourself lucky. Sweetest staff. Can’t wait to go back and...see them!!More
Thus was an impulse stop; we were driving by and decided to stop. The service was wonderful. Everything from the appetizer to the meal was delicious and fresh. The pasta is made fresh in house, and it shows. I included a picture of the tuna...tartare- my favorite! Will definately come back again in the future!More
My family and I were unsure of a place to eat and heard some good things about IZI. Honestly, the best decision we could make. The service was incredible. The food was better than Little Italy in NYC.... No kidding. We ordered fried calamari, which...was the best I have ever had. And bruschetta for apps . I got the Red Snapper special ( recommended by owner ) . we also got the chicken parm..... which my wife says is better than hers ( now that's a compliment). Lastly we had a jerk chicken Caesar salad). We are 100% Italian and I can tell you....... So is this food. Delicious. Don't think about it...just go. You will not be disappointed.
By the way, this is only second review I have ever done. I don't do them. I was just so moved by how good this was. That's how amazing this place is.
Great food, great service, great ambiance.....
Great job IZI!!!More
We been coming to the Island for many years and have followed Davide from a previous restaurant. His drive to offer a top-class menu has never disappointment us. Back that up with the service and atmosphere is something to rave about, you feel like you’re...in your home having a home cooked meal. Kudos to the entire staff, it's extremely important to cater for customers that are on vacation and making it a stress-free experience.
During our 2 weeks’ vacation, IZI, is our home for at least 4 to 5 times! Bravo to Davide and the staff for making this a place to come home too.More
