Delicious

We had bruschetta and parmigiana to start and both were delicious! The parmigiana smelled like the one from my nonna! I took the pizza "la parma" and my friend "diavola" and it was like in italy! Not too thin nor too fluffy, so we really enjoyed it! Only negative point is that the waitress has been... read more

I loved this restaurant 3 years ago, and I loved it again, this trip back to Miami. This restaurant is Ultra Italiano. From the greeter to the server and some of the kitchen. They all are either Italian or speak fluent Italian. Makes you think and feel like you're in Italy. I'm not sure, if they make their own Mozzarella,... More

Someone recommended me this restaurant as a great experience in Miami Beach, arrived into the valet with a chauffeur with very bad attitude to take the car, entered the restaurant and got in a table with very tight space for 5 people just under their framed pictures made with oleo. We wanted to have something fast and a good reccomendation... More

Great Italian food. the thin crust pizza was amazing and so were the pasta dishes. Authentic. Good attentive service. I've lived in the northeast for 40 years and have eaten in Italian restaurants in Italy, NYC and Fairfield and New Haven counties and Bufala is just as good.

Great authentic Italian restaurant on South Beach! Portions were plenty and the waiter was very knowledgeable and his recommendations didn't steer us wrong! The Lasagna and pizza was delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed all of our entrees and also the Italian Beer on tap!! Would definitely recommend making reservations because this place can feel up pretty fast! Will definitely return on...
