Last Meal in Miami

My wife and I ate here during our last night in Miami on our 10th anniversary trip. We had wandered about for a while looking for somewhere and decided to eat here. It was quite busy as it was the night before New Year's Eve and there were a lot of people around. The menu had a decent selection... read more

Best authentic Italian food I have had outside of Rhode Island. The owner Francisco is the most attentive restaurant owner I have ever met in my life. He treated my husband and I like his immediate family. Meals were amazing and atmosphere was welcoming and plaza like. When the owner serves you food, checks on you consistently and takes interest...

We were out surveying the area and found this amongst a few other choices. They welcomed us the minute we walked up until the minute we left. The food was great too. Definitely would return and try other menu items. Thanks for the warm welcome to South Beach

Went with the family 2 times while on vacation in Miami beach. First time had great food and great service. Ceasare was our waiter and a true professional. Second time was a Friday night and our waitress was rude and uncaring. We sat outside and my wife ordered a special and asked for the addition of scallops. It was not... More

On a recent girl's trip we went here the night we flew in. It was a perfect place to start our trip - casual and not too pricey. We all liked our food and it was close to our hotel in the SoFi area.

The meal my friend and I had was outstanding. The restaurant décor is also very nice. We chose to eat inside but they also have sidewalk dining available. The service was friendly but painfully slow.

Had lunch of Burrata cheese & prosciutto, then Arugula salad and homemade gnocchi in simple but tasty red sauce.. Washed down with a tasty Pinot grigio from Veneto...fantastic! Great friendly service from gentleman from Italy.
