very cozy Italian restaurant. Few tables. The food was incredible. Great drinks. When we arrived was quite empty but then a group of about 12 italians arrived, then we knew it was a great choice

The pizza is wonderful and we had room to try their gnocchi al pesto and the tiramisu with nutella. Everything was really good! Great staff, friendly and professional.

So they had a Lobster on pasta special... I like good lobster & I was very interested in the home-made pasta. So I ordered the special. I was disappointed in the lobster due to freshness and preparation. The pasta did save the dish. It was home-made and fresh. My friend who ordered a different pasta was very happy with his... More

We made a reservation at Amami based on positive reviews on Trip Advisor. I have to admit that we were disappointed. Food and service were pretty average. Ambiance is lacking although it was a nice break from some of the touristy places in SOBE. Given all of the restaurants to choose from, I don't think that we'll be back.

Luca is an Italian cook and we had one of our best meals in Miami Beach. My half Italian husband (and great cook) fully agreed. Marvellous food and good wines. We are a fan and recommend Luca to everyone looking for a real Italian dish in Miami.

Miami Beach used to be home for me, and so were a couple of cities in Italy so I'm familiar with restaurant cuisine in both places. For me, Amami offers fresh and delicious selections of Northern Italian dishes. With so many choices in SoBe, Amami shines for it's delicate, flavourful eggplant appetiser, the crab ravioli and the lobster pasta. Subtle... More

My wife and I chose to dine at Amimi on our first night in South Beach because it was close to our hotel. We were surprised to see how tiny the place was. The tables against the windows where we were seated were quite close together; however, the music was just loud enough to drown out voices, so it was... More

We had the special of the day which was spaghetti with lobster and it was excellent. The pizza sounded delicious also and may have to try that on our next visit. You can tell they take care in preparing the food. It is a small place - but that gives you the opportunity to visit with the staff/owner. We will... More

We went to this restaurant with my boyfriend after seeing all the good reviews on tripadvisor. We ordered the amami ravioli and the spaghetti carbonara. The food was okay (maybe a little bit too salty). The worst thing arrived when we received the bill. A 18% gratuity was automaticaly added on the bill (it's NOT written on the menu as... More
