Italian flair

There's something for everyone at Fratelli la Bufala. From individual pizzas to more elaborate entrees like cannelloni, the traditional menu is extensive. A good value and popular with multigenerational family groups with well behaved children. Outside or inside seating available.

This little gem is outstanding. Their pasta is deliciously homemade and pizza done to perfection. Best Italian bread made fresh there daily. The service is warm and friendly. Very much a neighborhood feel, not "touristy" It was so good we made a trip back for lunch before the airport!

We ordered a pizza to go. We were staying a block away and read good reviews. Our wood paired pizza was the best we have ever had with great sauce, ingredients, spices and crust. The restaurant looked like stepping into Italy. Wish we would have had more time in Miami Beach to enjoy some of the many pasta offerings on... More

Enjoyed our dinner! We ate outdoors, and staff was friendly and attentive to our family, including our 3 kids. Food was delicious. Good wine selection. Excellent service! I forgot my credit card, and staff promptly helped return it to me. Thanks!

I went with my family to have lunch. This place is so Italian that it doesn't feel that you are on Miami Beach, everyone that works there are Italians and the service is really good. The food is also great, especially the pizzas and the Nutella pizza. If you are in Miami Beach and craving for some Italian food don't... More

We had been recommended by a local that this was a great Italian restaurant. How disappointed we were! On a corner with outside seating, good location. Good service. But, that was it. We started with the Bruschetta- bland. Gooey bread. No flavor. Salad, fresh, but nothing original. My husband had the Pasta Bolognese- acidic sauce, little flavor. I had the... More

Great service , real italian food. Visited this restaurant twice. The pizzas are amazing and so fresh.The only downside was the location , if you eat outside its right on a junction so very noisey. But dont let that put you off. Plenty of tables inside.
