“The Best Restaurant in Coral Gables and the Best Authentic Italian in all of Miami”
I've been a patron for over 15 years and not once have I ever had a bad meal. In fact it has always been exceptional - down to the homemade bread they serve you when you first sit.
I've seen reviews where they complain about the staff and I have to disagree strongly. They have very professional and attentive waiters, they are just not constantly in your face. They are always within eye shot, since the place is not big, and come when called. If not, any other staff, be it another waiter, the manager or the owners are more than happy to assist when your waiter is in the middle of attending to another table. Nothing but courtesy. I guess if you feel that your waiter needs to park themsleves around your table and conatantly chit-chat with your party, like at a dime-a-dozen, corporate-run, itallian franchise, then the wait staff here will not be your style, go to Maccaroni Grill. The food would never compare but at least you'll get a singing waiter.
Everything is delicious but I have a few favorites such as their regular menu items - Bombay Chicken Ravioli, Saffron & Shrimp Risotto, and some of their rotating specials like their Sausage Risotto, Lobster Ravioli, Seafood dishes Al Cartuccio, Octopus Salami, Lasagna on the 1st Wednesday of every month. Also, their tiramisu is exquisite and made with orange zest.
I don't want to name names but on the same block there's another itallian restaurant that's a little more trendy, gets pretty crowed and is quite popular... but I don't understand why when Bugatti's is just steps away. I suggest you walk past that other Itallian place and right to Bugatti's. It's worth the extra steps, better quality food, more authentic and more delicious!
