Great Food, Great Service and Great Value!

We had one day in Miami Beach before we boarded our cruise. We waundered around aimlessly looking for a decent looking restaurant that wasn't in or associated with a hotel and stumbled across Cantina 27. The time was about noon and they were very busy.

We ate outside a couple of times, watching the cars and buses go by. The food is very good and the service not bad, depending who serves.This was a place where you could pass by at 10:00 pm and still find people eating and relaxing, so that says a lot.

The pasta and sauces were prepared beautifully, some of the best we've had outside of Italy. Our sommelier, Abe was both engaging, extremely knowledgeable and fun to chat with. My wife and I highly recommend Cantina 27.

Wonderful food, great dessert. Our waiter, Abe, went above expectations to help us choose a selection. We went with his recommendation and was not disappointed. When you go, don't miss the chocolate souffle. It is served hot with ice cream.

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 all homemade. Had tirimisu for dessert and the best... 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
