New menus equal new prices

The establishment always offered above average food. Service was always mediocre, even when the restaurant was empty. Little has changed, except for a slight uptick in the prices. This is still a safe harbor for a meal, but the ambience does not warrant a special trip for a special occasion.

Where do I start? We waited 15 minutes for our "waiter" to arrive once we were seated. The first words out of his mouth were, "What do you want to drink?" What ever happened to hello? Beer and wine only. Wines by the glass are one generic no name or origin option, only. We ordered caprese salad, 4 tomatoes and... More

Called for reservation, ordered excellent wine, ate fabulous food with my Sister. Waiter was absolutely rude, condescending towards us and couldn't answer questions about the food. If you are a cookie cutter order off the menu no questions asked, you'll love it. If you deviate at all, go to Abracci instead. Both are high end and Abracci has much better... More

This place has been around for a while now. The look and feel haven't changed at all. You don't feel super welcome or surrounded by nice atmosphere. However our server this visit was cordial and food was very good. We had the Buggati three entree special (don't remember what it was called) but included proscuitto with melon, mozzarella and tomato... More

We were patrons for years until we noticed the menu changed last week. New selections were mediocre to bad. Worse, the server was totally insensitive to our pleas and remained indifferent and distant. Will not be back

Need to make resrvation if you come later than 7 pm. You need to know what to order here. Avoid the clam sauce. There is no fish on the menur. The green ravioli with tomato sauce was good. Service was slow though cordial. Waited 40 minutes for dessert. "Ran out of whip cream".

I was in downtown Coral Gables to see a show at the Miracle Theatre. I am not from that area and I didn't think to make reservations anywhere. It was dumb luck that a parking spot became available in front of Bugatti and they had the capacity to seat 2 people. The restaurant is small. The staff is very attentive.... More

My wife and I went in to this restaurant not knowing what we would get. To our surprise the food was excellent. My wife had one of the day's specials, the saffron infused risotto with peas and shrimp. It was excellent! I had the linguini con frutti de mare and it was excellent as well. The ambiance was simple and... More

Go to eat good Italian food is to think of this restaurant. The food is excellent, as well as the service. A small place, very good and the atmosphere is very friendly. The selection is wide and we advise you to make reservation to have security to obtain its table. The decision to choose this restaurant for lunch or dinner... More

The Vichyssoise is a must-have when you visit here. Pasta dishes are good, but the Vichyssoise is excellent.
