The hosts said the waiting should be around one hour. A minute later my friend asked her and she said 15 minutes. But besides that the restaurant is nice, the food was delicious, the service was good but a bit too pricy. The location is great.

The bartender in our Hotel in Ft Lauderdale recommended this restaurant. It is located in Miami Beach on Espanola Way. Espanola Way is closed off to vehicles and is very quaint. It is like a little village in Italy. I had Italian and my hubby had fish. Both were delicious. Our waiter Franco was very attentive and friendly. The food... More

My girlfriends and I ate here two nights in a row. I recommend the tuna tartare and the mojitos! It's so fun to sit outside with the lights and the breeze. Such a great atmosphere!

Great location, fun people-watching if you can get a seat outside. Food was good but not great. Service was ridiculously slow, and prices are tourist-district high.

The setting is perfect for eating street side and the food was very good. Started with the calamari, which was calamari... Nothing that's going to blow you away but good. Tried the tuna for an entree, presentation was impressive and the sides were delicious but the fish itself was a bit overdone. The staff were very friendly and service as... More

Pricey, but we really wanted some seafood pasta. I HIGHLY recommend the mussels, they are delicious. Good food, poor service (the place seemed a little understaffed for a Friday night). A glass of wine will set you back about $12 and a typical pasta dish is about $25-30, but those prices aren't unheard of on Espanola Way. I enjoyed it!... More

Stopped for dinner on a busy night. The service was good but a little disjointed (didn't get bread until the food was out, but it worked out ok). Our dinners were very tasty. However the Key Lime Pie we had for dessert was outstanding. That made the entire meal memorable. Next time we are in town we might just go... More
