Izi Pasta Lounge

Not only is Izi Pasta hip, modern, and fresh, but it is known around the island for having the best Italian fare in St. Maarten. Since it opened in 2009, its popularity has soared, and most would recommend that this be the one spot you make sure you hit before you return home.

Food

Though Izi Pizza is an Italian restaurant, there is a lot that sets it apart from others of its kind. To start, the menu is separated into four color categories: red, white, blue, and green. Red refers to four homemade tomato based sauces; white is the sauces of that color like alfredo, carbonara, and formaggi; blue sauces are sauces that mix offerings from the sea such as mussels and calimari; and finally, green sauces are based in oils and herbs like pesto, aglio, and olio.

Once you get beyond the sauces, you will find that there are 12 fresh pastas, homemade lasagna that is known around the island, and several seafood and meat options as well. You can also create a pasta of your own by choosing a sauce, pasta, and protein, and go from there.

If you check out the menu at Izi Pasta Lounge, among other options you'll find pasta served with Italian flair. When deciding how to dress for this restaurant, consider that the style of the food and service is informal. This location serves food for dinner only, so plan ahead to catch their brief service.

Ambiance

Bright white walls and furnishings are contrasted by a bright red accent wall, pink lighting fixtures, and an Asian style bar. Chic and ultramodern, Izi Pasta is a trendy spot to dine on Italian fare.
