The sun was screaming into the front dining area where we were sat. I basically cooked throughout my entire meal. Portion size was small. The Linguine Pescatora was awful. The waitress warned me it would be spicy. What I got was basically pasta and water with some shellfish. Not spicy in the least. I honestly don't think they added any... More

Just arrived to Miami South Beach late evening we walked from our hotel towards Ocean Blvd. Dropped in at Cantina 27 and found fantastic service by Tim. Food was over average of Italian but not at the highest level. I would say very good for the money. We got an excellent Chardonnay wine from SüdTirol Italy (The Old Part of... More

Food was average for Italian. Pasta was overly simple, also bread for starters was simple white sliced bread. Not what I expect from an Italian

My friend and I arrived in Miami kind of late, so it was after 11 by the time we got checked in. Cantina is close to our hotel. The staff was very friendly. We were only able to order pizza due to the late hour, however, it was delicious! I think it's a little pricey if your on a budget,... More

Great food at good price. Quiet ambiance and the waiter spoke French (which was a nice touch!) The food was excellent and the waiter took the time to recommend food and wines. The fresh pastas were very good and the espresso ice cream in espresso coffee, amazing! If you're looking for a nice place to eat a romantic dinner without... More

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!

We had dinner at this cozy, small, but authentic Italian restaurant and we had a very pleasant dinner. After days of meat we wanted some good pasta (we are italians). 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
