We go to Izi every year when we visit St. Maarten, and we have a great meal every time. This year was no exception. We visited on 3/4/2021, and had a wonderful dinner. We started with the special burrata appetizer, served with prosciutto, charred cherry tomatoes, and a little pesto on top. The cheese was delicate and smooth, contrasted with the saltiness of the prosciutto. Our second appetizer was the fried calamari -done to crispy perfection. I had the Chilean Sea Bass entree with a Parmesan crust, served with a broccoli purée and a puff pastry vegetable tart. My husband had the seafood pasta - delicious. For dessert we chose to split a mango panna cotta, so smooth. We ended the meal with an espresso and complementary Limoncello. The servers were polite and attentive, and David, the owner helped us choose the perfect bottle of wine.

We have been coming to St. Maarten for over 20 years and Izi is one restaurant that we come back to over and over. This year, we sat at one of the outside tables which was perfect. The owner, David, oversees every detail and the waitstaff is friendly and very professional. Our dinner tonight was delicious! We started with the burrata with prosciutto and charred cherry tomatoes (I could have just kept eating this for dinner), and fried calamari, which was perfectly prepared. For dinner, I had the Branzino with champagne sauce, mashed sweet potatoes, and a vegetable medley. My husband had the rigatoni with the spicy Italian sausage and black olives. Dessert was their light and creamy panna cotta with fresh mango and a glass of limoncello.
It isn’t easy to keep a restaurant fresh and the food inventive after being around for so many years but Izi manages to do just that. Always one of our best meals on the island and we hope that continues for many more years! Don’t miss it!

We are coming from New York, we love everything from IZI, especially the pastas, and the Sicilian style of red snapper. We are having the best food, the best service and most importantly the best owner with a very nice hospitality. IZI is the Best Italian restaurant on the island.

We've come to Izi for years. Always very reliable. I knew it was a new chef and the menu has changed. We just had two pasta dishes (carbonara and penna salmon). Both were really outstanding. Tirimisu was standard...not outstanding but quite good. The service was excellent.
The only issue some may have, like Sale & Pepe, it's a very "white" and slick decor; inside can get loud when crowded.
But for a nice bowl if pasta and not too very costly, highly recommend.
