“A family friendly local Pasta Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

We returned to the Bugatti after almost a year’s absence with friends from childhood. We were all very pleased with what we had. Great pasta, perhaps the best we know of. The salads we tried were very good and service was more than friendly. We were introduced to the restaurant a number of years ago and it has always met our expectations. Don't miss the pasta and try to experiment with new dishes; the cream sauce is excellent melts in your mount. The restaurant is not large and the table fairly closes, there are booths too. The decor is understated, pleasant, and comfortable. Service was very good, and professional. This could be considered a romantic spot, a family outing, of a business meal, whatever you choose, it works. The dining experience is most enjoyable and the cost is very reasonable. We hade Bugatti, mixed baby field greens, romaine, radicchio, carrots, tomatoes, fennel, bugatti vinaigrette, Ravioli, spinach and cheese filled ravioli, vine ripened tomato and basil sauce, and our friend had the Tortelloni, cheese filled spinach tortelloni, vine ripened tomato and basil sauce, bufala mozzarella, all this came to about $ 40.00 per person, tip, tax, and drinks.

“The most terrible italian place in miami”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Everything including the homemade pasta was inedible. Service was terrible we couldn't get any water for an hour. The pesto was terrible bland other than the overwhleming salt. The ravioli was poorly textured. Will never be back, many other italian restaurants in the neighborgood

“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

We didn't find this restaurant until two years after we moved to Coral Gables, even though it has been in the same place since 1985. We don't know how we missed it but are glad we finally found it! Excellent service and uniformly good food. However, it is the desserts that deserve the most praise. The apple tart and creme brulee are sinfully delicious!!!

“Great food from 'always the same menu'.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

I have been coming to Bugattti Restaurant now for about four years because the food is excellent along with the service. And I mean excellent. For example, try the Ravioli San Marco: Maine lobster ravioli, light brandied cream sauce...oohhh! Or try to make it (I say try because it gets very crowded) on the 'lasagna-day'.. delicious! The only negatives are 1st that the menu is basically always the same and 2nd, "the guiding hand" is not very friendly at all. And I say this not only based on personal experience but I have heard it from friends that have been eating here for many years. So, if you can 'get around' those two, like I have, you will become a regular at Bugatti.

“Best fresh pasta in the Gables”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012 via mobile

We've been coming here for years- this place has the best minestrone soup in Miami plus the fresh pasta is light and excellent- I had the tagliatelle with their meat sauce - excellent! My wife had the clams and linguine in parchment and it was awesome as well. In the past I've also had their ravioli and it is great too. Friendly professional wait staff as well.
