Great food, very small portions.

We shared home-made pastas, burrata and tuna salad as a first course. All delicious but the portions are extremely small for the high price. We then had salmon and branzino. The fish wasn't the freshest I ever had and once again small portions. We dined outside after seeing the beautiful pictures... read more

The setting is nice and the service was fine but the food bland and uninspired, especially given the prices. The kitchen seems to be of the view that if you just throw a lot of salt in the pan you can satisfy the average diner. You could do better at the likes of Olive Garden. Had an appetizer and shared...

Enjoyed great Italian food in the beautiful and romantic garden. Not the cheapest place, but well worth the visit. Enjoyed the whole meal, topped up with an amazing key lime pie :)

We came here to celebrate my daughter's 16th birthday while on vacation. This restaurant has it all -- lovely atmosphere, excellent food, and attentive service. And, the specialty birthday cake they made (with advance notice) was terrific. My only complaint? We sat on the patio in August and it was oppressively hot -- even at 9:00 p.m. If we come... More

First let me say that the restaurant is beautiful, flowers, atmosphere -and food also fine - albeit very small portions as others have noted. The main issue was service. First it appeared that servers were very happy to assist in wine and food selection, but when our choice of wine was 85.00 - not 125 - which was recommended consistently,... More

Had dinner with some friends. The restaurant has some beautiful art. Flowers are fresh and gorgeous. Wait staff are very nice and attentive. I ate the pasta with bolognese sauce. $26 for a small portion (about 1 cup). Big plate! Also had the zucchini flowers. $18 for 2 stuffed flowers. Desserts were all double digit prices. All the items were... More

My friend and I were looking foward to our dinner for months while planning to attend the Miami Swim Show. We have been yearning to experience Casa Tua for several years and finally made reservations. We were greeted by a lovely hostess at the door who showed us to the intimate bar area to wait for 2 others to join... More

Both an attractive outside and inside area were available. We dined inside and found the acoustics of the restaurant poor. The service was excellent as was the food. However the portions were extremely small despite the high cost of the meal. One shouldn't leave a restaurant hungry after spending over $100.00 per person before tax and tip. (Only 2 drinks...

Beautiful, romantic setting indoor and ourdoors. Incredible house-made pasta, perfectly cooked fishes. The BEST key lime pie to top it all of. Very professional service.
