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.


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.

Among other things, Izi Pasta Lounge specializes in pasta with Italian twists. As far as the style of dining and food goes, the setting is informal. They are open for business during dinner only, so make sure to plan your visit around the limited hours they are open.


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.


Located in Sint Maarten, 2.7 miles south of Marigot, Izi Pasta Lounge is located at Paradise Mall. Residents and tourists checking out Simpson Bay might also consider enjoying a meal here, since the restaurant is a mile (a kilometer and a half) to the southeast.

You can merge restaurant visit with some local sightseeing possibilities by visiting one of the many close-by area attractions, including Caribbean Cinemas - St. Maarten Megaplex 7.

There are a few adjacent things to do outside to participate in if you have space in your itinerary. Travelers ready to take to the greens have the option of spending time at the closest golf facility, Mullet Bay Golf Course, which is located within traveling distance of Izi Pasta Lounge. After a long, hot day on the links, refresh at Kim Sha Beach, which you will find to be the nearest beach and is only a half mile away. And still, these two options are just a few of the beaches and golf courses in the vicinity.
