The restaurant doesn't have on site parking, one had to go across the street to a lot in order to park. The interior is dark and has old fashion photos on the wall along with other "Italian" decorations. The restaurant is small with about fifteen table placed so close together that one is able to hear conversations. We ordered pasta... More

This review is outrageous ....., you have truly been mistaken. I am the owner/chef who cares about the food we produce, and the customers we serve who truly enjoy 100% made from scratch Italain cuisine. So for starters....parking? If you live in Miami...haven't you ever parked on the street, or parking across your destination? That's a problem? Old fashion photos... More

The food and service is top knotch. The owner came to our table and welcomed us personally and told us the specials. Portions were big enough that we took home enough for a whole other meal.

Best Italian meal we've ever had, and we've been to Italy! The atmosphere was so quaint. There were 11 of of to celebrate our kids' graduation. Everyone got something different and all the dishes were incredible! The owner/chef, Jill, was friendly and made sure that we were all satisfied. We will definitely go back when we are in the area!
