sooooo worth going off my low-carb diet! from the moment the aroma of the fresh bread arrived, to the fresh pasta, and the homemade desserts.... the meal just could not have been better!

After a quick search on Trip Advisor we decided to give Cantina 27 a try. There is no the usual bolognese spaghetti or tomato sauce but actually a variety of... More

This was a very cool little place to go. I think the pizza and bruschetta we had was the best ever!!! Our waiter was very courteous and knowledgeable.... He picked out right away we were Canadian because of how we said "out" ...lol the wine was very good and the hubby enjoyed the beer. Erin and Mark Alberta, Canada

Great local find! I just moved in the neighborhood and decided to pop in for late lunch -- I had the best Bolognese (and mind you, I do typically like Bolognese) with fresh homemade pasta. The flavor was over the top delicious. The pasta was perfectly cooked and so fresh. Wine along with meal was great. Went back 2 more... More

We stayed nearby and ate here twice as there is not much else in the area. The food was great, very nicely presented and great italian taste. We would eat here again and the price is about right for the South Beach area a few blocks away.

Homemade pasta at Cantina 27 was excellent! We had the gnocchi and the pesto linguine which were delicious. Our son had a personal size pizza which was also good. Salads were also tasty and good size portions. All the deserts are also homemade and were great - lemon sorbet in prosecco, vanilla gelato topped with expresso. Service was excellent and... More

The best part was our server Abe! He was a gem ;) so knowledgeable about the menu and Miami as well. It was great to have such a awesome history lesson. When we return to... More
