We visited as a family for early evening supper. The food was great, seafood pasta was excellent along with the homemade pasta. The house wine was good and the Tiramasu was the best I have ever had. Thank you!

A tipical, modern, thorough Italian menu with excellent materials in a friendly and lively atmosphere. Since you arrive, Francesco and Paolo, 13 years in South Beach, make you feel like an old customer, all staff is nice and friendly. We had an excellent Napoli-like perfectly cooked pizza, real "aglio, olio e peperoncino" and, not that easy, perfect gluten-free penne. Francesco,... More

The food is normal. Inside it's a bit gloomy for Miami beach. The waiters are kind. The only drawback was that our table (2 people) was ar the side and the air-conditioning was a bit too cold. We asked to change but they said the table we wanted was for four people. 4 people came later and SAT there, but... More

If you are in the sofi area you must try this place! The pasta is fresh and delicious. I love the gnocchi sorrentina. For dessert, you must try the nutellino.

We went here because of the location but now it is my new favorite restaurant - great neapolitan pizza, great lasagna with really great meat sauce and even the Caesar salad was great. All around, everything we had was great!

This is a very casual local pizzeria type restaurant. The service is amazing--owners and staff really care about making sure you love your meal. They were attentive without being overbearing. Seats are packed pretty tightly, but everyone is so friendly that you end up chatting with your neighbors and having an even nicer time. Pizza was delicious, as were the... More

Our family of 4 ate here our first night in Miami Beach. Wow! The meal was loved by all of us. We ate outside and enjoyed the atmosphere very much. Our waiter was great! Very knowledgeable about the menu and the food we were looking for. We first shared the charcuterie platter. I could have made a meal out of... More

This place has a good reputation and I'm willing to concede that I just happened to order the wrong thing. Let's start with the positives. The service was brilliant. Comforting and inviting. Good Italian waiters and quality setting with beautiful decor. Plenty of options on the menu, and an extensive and diverse wine list. The bread was good, fresh crispy... More
