I liked a lot

Nice place with very good food and very nice staff. The live music was perfect for dinner. I recommend it and it's also Worth for money.

I visited this restaurant with some business colleagues. Evey course was exceptional and the service attentive. I had a delish cod encrusted with pistachio and a mango salsa. Every bite was amazing. Great atmosphere. I will be back!

Well, being half italian, I have a good imagine how an authentic italian food has to be...and here we found everything just in Italy. Tried spaghetti a'la bolognese, portabella mushroom tooped with cheese, some pork and some veal (can't remember of names) and everything was outstanding. Oh yes, the dessert, some nutella-strawberry stuff was excellent too. The bill was not... More

Looking for the best Italian restaurant in Miami? My husband and I travel to Miami often and usually stay in South Beach. This month, hotels in South Beach were sold out because of Spring Break so we ended up staying in Doral for a few days. Being food snobs, we're picky about where we eat and like good authentic food.... More

Our evening started quite well but we were shocked when the waiter and hostess asked us to leave while we were still finishing our meal. We were literally still enjoying our after meal coffee and were asked to leave as there were people waiting. When we told the waiter he was rude, he riddled us with excuses and said people... More

Went to restaurant for a nice dinner for my son's birthday. Food was excellent, service excellent, until the end when the waiter, Edgardo asked us to leave because he said there were people waiting for a table. This is very rude. However, I did speak to the owner and he apologized and said that this is not normal and offered... More

Dear Jim, We apologize for the inconvenience, this is actually the first time since we opened il Forno Ristorante that a waiter asks our valued customer to leave. The waiter is no longer part of the Il Forno Ristorante staff, once again we apologize for the inconvenience, we look forward to your next visit soon. Have a great day. More

We go here frequently with family and friends and really enjoy the atmosphere. Parking is a disaster so take advantage of valet parking. The waterside terrace is a great location almost any month of the year. Also, the wine selection is fantastic. The Camus red on their list is legendary.

Loved everything - the food, the service, the atmosphere. We chose this restaurant based on the reviews here. Great find! The appetizers were all delicious - Pasta Fagioli, Lentil Soup, Crab Stuffed Avocado, Salad. Dinners: Spaghetti Carbonara was the best EVER! Branzino was really good. The linguine with lobster was so original. Dessert: Cannoli - definitely homemade and fresh. Profiterole... More
