Fantastic Pizza and Pasta Plates-always too much for 1 sitting-be ready to take home. The pizza is extremely tasty-we had veggie and cheese pies. The garlic rolls (you can never have enough garlic) are the best. I had chicken parm and it was excellent. Great atmosphere, be ready to wait in line at primetime.

This was the second time I have gone and both times I had been brought there by my local friends and they could not be more correct. Nothing fancy, just a great local find. This is not an overpriced tourist joint but I guarantee you will feel comfortable here none the less. The staff was running as fast as they... More

I love the Big Cheese. I was born in Miami, and this is a classic Pizza and Pasta spot locals love, and few tourists find. However, it's easy to find. But best of all, is the kitchen crew. They are busy, busy, busy, but never too busy to help you when you walk up to the take out counter. My... More

Went here one time with my friends and we really like it here! The pizza we had, the big cheese supreme, was so good and delicious! Place is neat and the seating were okay. As for the service, it was fine. Outside, it seemed so simple but once you're in... you would surely be surprised.

Had the pleasure of eating dinner with my family at The Big Cheese by the university of Miami campus. Service was very attentive, food was very good and the price was right. Garlic rolls were a meal unto themselves. Salad dressing was clearly homemade and every one enjoyed their meals. Can't wait to return next time we're in the Gables.

We have been going to Big Cheese for quite a while. The food here is always good. From the garlic rolls to the subs to the pasta. Real good stuff, but my favorite of all is the clam chowder. It is above this world. I have had a lot of clam chowder, but nothing compares to this one. The only... More

I have been eating there since I was a kid and continue go back all the time, the seafood pastas are excellent and the plates are huge.It gets a little crowded on evenings fri/sat which is a good thing in a way, meaning the food is great. ONE CAUTION, Don't park in the karate parking lot next door, those people... More

Went for lunch with a few friends and really enjoyed our meals. The food was very good and the thing about cheese is no joke cause they pile it on (which is great cause I love cheese).. Prices are OK no meal is really less than $10 which is fine. Parking and the restaurant itself are really tight but other... More

I have yet to have anything that I can say is BAD at Big Cheese. the one item that stands out is their Garlic Bread. It really is amazing and a MUST. Their pizza and pasta dishes are all YUMMY! Yes...it is a popular place and is always PACKED. Prepare to come and wait for a table. But it is... More
