A see and be seen restaurant that brings upscale New York style to the Miami waterfront. Outside or inside, the service is impeccable. Our waiter Sebastian listed ten specials so flawlessly that to then look at the menu would have been superfluous if not insulting. First timers should for sure order the house specialty ravioli. Our table also raved about... More

The service is a bit rude, very noisy place. To be honest the carbonara was not memorable but the rest of our options were not bad. It's a traditional Italian restaurant, old fashioned and plain.... Wine was good and desserts the best of night Deserves another chance but definitely not carbonara next time ! Javierchik

We ate here last night. It was our second visit. This restaurant has a beautiful setting overlooking Biscayne Bay. We were greeted by the hostess and she asked us if we would like to eat outside. The weather was perfect and our cousins from New York had a great "Miami experience" in a lovely setting. The service at this restaurant... More

I dined here with business associates a few nights ago. The service, ambience, decor, food, wines.... everything!... were so over the top, this dining experience is easily among the finest I've experienced, ever. As dazzling as this restaurant is, it is not snooty. The friendly and outgoing staff went as much out of their way to accommodate people in jeans... More

This restaurant offers it all. Amazing dinner selections, attentive work staff, great wine selection, and so much more. When you do get the chance to dine here, please asked to be seated outside for the great water views. Advance reservations are highly suggested as this place is a favorite of many, and now I know why. Trust me, you will... More

Went on Christmas Eve. Incredible dinner. Every pasta better than the next. Easily one of the best Italian restaurants ever. Sat outside over looking lights of Miami and Bay.

We had an early dinner due to jet lag from traveling . The host sat us at a nice table outside. However, shortly not one, but two large tables with kids were seated, with us squashed in the middle. I got up and asked the manager to please move us. He did immediately. We ended up having a very delicious,... More
