I'll start of by saying that we are from Australia so we are used to portions smaller than America's. But the portion sizes were absolutely ridiculous. My fiancé ordered a ravioli and I ordered the beef lasagne. The ravioli entailed FOUR pieces of pasta, and probably a handful of sauce. You should have seen his face when they put it... More

We have eaten here just a few hours after our first arrival in Miami, so we entered the first restaurant we encountered (this one). I expected to be in one of the many fake italian restaurant abroad, so I ordered a fish dish while my friend wanted to try pasta. I have to admit that the fish was delicious, but... More

We were staying in the Ocean Five Hotel above the restaurant, so on our last night, we thought to stop for a nightcap before we went to bed. My partner ordered a glass of Pinot Grigio, which tasted so bad it was either off or opened a week before. The waiter wasn't sympathetic to our kind critique of his wine,... More

Expensive with average food. Portions are small the price was high and the owner / chef constantly yelled at the one waitress – and she yelled back. We will not return.

After a couple of great visits to Mi Ami last year, we were looking forward to our return visit recently. At 9 PM on a Friday, it was not crowded, which I found surprising. We ordered a Margherita pizza ($11.99) and Bruschetta ($9). The prices were moderate though the Bruschetta was very basic with 4 very small pieces of toast.... More

We had read so positive reviews, but our dinner was a disappointment. It took an hour before we got our food, the waiter forgot to take our drink orders, one glass was dirty, we had to ask twice before they turned off the terrible wet fan. The food was OK, but not fantastic. Because of the poor service we didn't... More

Wonderful restaurant in lovely South Beach. Authentic Italian food served in a romantic atmosphere. The fresh fish was simply prepared with just the right seasoning. Waitstaff courteous and helpful. Good wine list with reasonable prices. Do try Mi Ami when you are in South Beach!

My Dear Friend, I feel sorry to hear you were disappointed with our prices. I can see you enjoyed the mixed seafood and I'm trying to understand how much would you like to pay for 1 kg of branzino (yes, our branzino is 35oz) More
