Description: Situated on Miami Beach's northernmost stretch, La Terrazza is a refreshing addition to the region’s sleepy restaurant scene. This chic neighborhood hot spot shines for its eclectic, authentic Italian fare, featuring an astounding array of wood-oven fired pizzas, meats and seafood’s, offered at amazingly agreeable prices. Flawless red snapper is baked with fresh herbs and tomatoes, topped with a savory potato crust. La Terrazza’s sumptuous veal chop and tender rack of lamb are oven roasted to aromatic perfection. The wine cellar is well stocked and diverse. As the name suggests, La Terrazza (which is Italian for “the terrace”) has fast become known for its spacious outdoor covered terrace, kissed with ocean breezes. The elegant indoor dining room is the ideal setting for a memorable lunch or for an unforgettable dinner. It is also a perfect location for parties and wedding receptions.

Watch your bill at this restaurant. they added more expensive wine to our bill and over charged us for meals. Be very careful when reviewing your bill. There are other reviews below which also mention problems with over billing. It totally ruins your meal and evening out when a restaurant tries to rip you off on your bill. Be very,... More

I ordered chicken marsala which was pale, greasy and swimming around the plate. My wife ordered lasagne which was difficult to cut - very tough. It was stuck to the plate with lots of cheese and little meat. There is a language problem too! The wines are expensive so I ordered cheap champagne and they only had one bottle. I... More

Place was recommended by a friend based on service from previous owner (Marcello). Place had a talented French Canadian singer that kept the small crowd smiling and interested. Service was untimely and drinks were stingy (challenged a double cognac back to bartender, which measure about 1.5 shots). When complaint was made to the manager it fell on deaf years. Manager...

My mom and I stayed in Sunny Isles last week... and we actually really liked La Terrazza. The location was very convenient for us so the first evening we just decided to stop by and try it out. We were happily surprised with the food, so we even decided to go back during our stay. Despite the fact that the... More

This is one of the nicest restaurant I have been in the Miami region. Pizza is the meal I gauge new restaurants by and this one collects top honors. The crust, the toppings and the way it was cooked were simply sublime. Food is important but service is part of the equation too. That was the clincher. Our waiter was... More

Decent food, noisy restaurant - so good for families with children. Pizza is good, rest of dishes are good but nothing outstanding. Can be hot because they tend to leave the glass doors open all the time. Pricing is on the high side for the type of restaurant this has become. It once was more elegant but they have changed...

Right across the street from the Trump hotel is this well received Italian restaurant. I ordered the La Terrazza personal pizza. Thin crust and loaded; as good ad a NY PIZZA. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

This restaurant was directly opposite our resort so seemed convenient and we tried it once for convenience. It was almost empty when we arrived and whilst there was never overly busy. The staff (of which there are many) stand around a lot and seem poorly co-ordinated. The kitchen is on view and when food is ready to serve, it sat... More

After a long day at the beach, we wanted to chill out and enjoy a light meal. La Terrazza has a good location and seemed okay. We were greeted by a French receptionist, and chose an al fresco table. We ordered our starters and main courses, enjoyed ourselves watching pedestrians and luxury cars on Collins Ave. The waitress brought one... More

My American Express bill came and the restaurant charged my card $66.53. I called 5 times, explained the issue, left messages for a call back or a credit on my Amex... More
