Amazing food!

This restaurant deserves 5 stars. The food was so good; best I've had outside of Italy and even some in Italy! We first had a rucola (arugula) salad; dressing was light and perfectly tossed. I had pasta with lamb; hubby had seafood pasta. Both were absolutely delicious. Pasta cooked perfectly and... read more

This is a small Italian restaurant in South Beach. The server was excellent and the food was terrific. We shared two pasta dishes; both were excellent. We completed the meal with a chocolate soufflé and espresso. A meal well enjoyed

I was there yesterday with my family. The pizza was excellent. The Pannacotta and the Creme brulee was good too. It was good value for money.

The waiter suggested we stick to the dishes that had their homemade Pasta and it was good advice. Had the pomodoro (we switched the pasta to a homemade option) and the Lamb ragu. Both tasted great and very fresh. Our server was great fun! Would go back again. Note: the bathrooms were terrible and seemed to be part of a... More

Great food - check. Service that is quick but not rushed, friendly, and conversational - check. Good value - check. Highlights were 1) spinach ravioli that was cooked al dente with a warm, creamy center and 2) the creme brûlée. This spot isn't trying to be too much. Simple, fresh, quality driven. Very enjoyable and the service makes it 5... More

Small, intimate venue with quality food. The lasagna was excellent! Authentic, homemade pasta. Large portions, reasonably priced. Family owned and operated business, Owner, Emanuele, is very gracious. Location is great for The Edition guests, less than a two block walk. Looking forward to coming back!

This restaurant is on the corner of Collins Avenue and 27th Street, Miami Beach, with some tables on the sidewalk. It doesn't look like much during the day and people pass it by all the time, going to the better advertised places in South Beach. They don't know what they are missing. My family has been going to it 3-4... More
