David and his staff always excel in their cuisine, service and friendly atmosphere. IZI is usually our first stop for dinner when we come down here. We come to St. Maarten for 3-4 weeks every year and dine at IZI at least 4 time. Never...disappointedMore

My friend and I went to school in Sint Maarten in 2011 and used to come to Izi. 10 years later we returned with our wives and nothing has changed. The staff are among to most friendly and hospitable on the island and the owner...is a pleasure to talk to. The food is amazing as well! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for great italian food on the island!More

I am on a woking trip, and as SXM does not offer co working spots as far as I know, I was looking for a quiet coffee place. I felt really welcome, the service of Johan was awesome and the espresso was delicious! They even...do gluten free pasta, so I found my place! Thanks a lot Johan!More

Absolutely amazing food. The service was great, after appetizers the owner even came out to ask us what we wanted for dinner and helped us choose what we wanted based off of our preferences. We will be back. Bernice, our waitress was fabulous.

We visited during the week and did not need to. I would suggest if you had a large group it might be necessary.
