I love eating here! We've been on numerous occasions & it never disappoints. We once met my brother-in-law after a Bok test match & went there for a late supper. The place was still buzzing & we ended eating after midnight! It was well worth the wait.

A really great little Italian restaurant on Florida Road in Durban with delicious real Italian food as the owners are from Italy. Unfortunately there is not much else to choose from so if you want something other than Italian the chances are you will not find it here. The pastas are very filling and you end up taking half home with you because the servings are really large. I love the ambience and the great service

Definitely one of my favourite restaurants in Florida Road. If you love Italian food then this is somewhere you have to dine. The prices are not that expensive, but could be cheaper, however the servings are big and the taste sensation you get in your mouth is delicious and delectable.

Italian delight

Definitely one of my favourite restaurants in Florida Road. If you love Italian food then this is somewhere you have to dine. The prices are not that expensive, but could be cheaper, however the servings are big and the taste sensation you get in your mouth is delicious and delectable.

This place is pretty good. The hot dogs are probably the best item I've tried, had the chili cheese dog - cheese is a little pasty so I would have it without next time but I enjoyed it otherwise. The regular hot dog is good, they put a ton of toppings on it and it has good flavor. The burgers are just ok, I like the char broiled flavor but the meat was a little rubbery. Italian beef was soggy and had a flavor I didn't care for, I think the was the gravy, it had an off/almost artificial beef flavor. Their onion rings are very good and I love the crinkle cut fries.

I would like to try the tamale in a bowl and their sausage sandwich so I'll be heading back but you can get better burgers/dogs at other places (AJ's supermarket is actually better). It always seems to be mobbed so they clearly have their fans, to me it's just ok.

Everyone in Durban knows this is the place to be. The food is always good, although using a bit less oil would be good for those of us who are health conscious.

I recently took my youngest son for a 'date' to Spiga and he was very clear that they produced the best Italian food he had ever tasted. So good for adults, and good for kids. The biggest challenge....Trying to get into this spot in the first place.

Unbeatable when it comes to casual dining. Ambiance is terrific. I've had one or two ordinary meals here but this is forgivable. Always busy and perfectly situated in Florida Road which makes it easy to walk to the next happening eatery.

Popular restaurant that serves a mouthwatering variety of dishes. The ambience is wonderful and captivating. The only problem I have with this restaurant is that it's always busy and I have to wait very long for my order.

If you want peace and quiet, it's not here.
If you want a delicious pasta, then this is your best bet in Durban. You most probably will have to stand in a long queue though if you don't make reservations.

Spiga has always been a hot spot on Florida Rd. My friends and I enjoy their chicken and Mushroom lasagne. The atmosphere is great along with the decor! Good stuff Spiga!

Had a meal a Spiga a few months back. Our table was huge, and the food arrived hot, together and in good time.

The Pizza's and Pasta's are great. The venue can get very busy and so you've got to be a bit patient. Spiga deserves this amazing rating and congrats on being #1 on Yowzit.
