It feels and tastes like Italy! Packed with patrons, open kitchen, loud, enthusiastic ambiance.About a 15 minute lineup for a table, worth the wait. Pizza is delicious, quick friendly service: a la Italia!

This place just south of 5th offers a tasty dinner. La Parma pizza with prociutto is very good, though ours could have been hotter. Super fresh, however. We tried a $39 Aglianico--perfect for this food. Other options on the wine list looked good, too. It's a franchise, great location, good vibe, local action.

Started by a trio of brothers in Naples, Italy, and now with 100 locations worldwide- but only one in the U.S.- this eclectic eatery is sure to please. One brother is an artist, and his work lines the walls.Using imported ingredients- the cheeses arrive twice weekly from Naples - the chef prepares delicious cuisine including brick oven pizzas, salads and...

Cozy indoors, some outdoor seating, authentic Italian fare, and terrific service every time. We often bring guests, and this year's couple raved just like all the others. Expect to wait for meals that take more prep time (nothing is prepared in advance), the caprese salad is exceptional (pricey because the imported bufala mozzarella is incomparably superb), and their version of...

I usually do not deliver reviews, but in this case I want to advise this place as I was really surprised by the excellent food, especially the pizza. Moreover, the service and cleanliness are excellent, the staff is very careful to everything, maximum cordiality, in particular talented Vichy as well as very nice.

Fratelli La Bufala was an oasis of calm out of the sun and noise of South Beach. The pizza was fresh from the brick oven and tasty. Portions are filling. A good find. And a far better lunch option than the generic places hawking 44 oz drinks.

We popped in for a light lunch. We sat outside, it's on the corner of a busy junction, and watched the world go by. It was really relaxing. Waiters were attentive and we're always on hand to get what you want when you want it. The food, a pizza to share, was really tasty as were the spiced fries. A... More
