“excellent homemade Italian -”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

An excellent casual dining experience in the North Miami Beach area. Feels like family, food is great and sourced as much as possible from local and organic sources.

Casual and great for families - the food is delicious and the staff friendly and inviting. A good casual evening out.

“Great Italian food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Away from crowds, Cantina 71 serves delicious fresh Italian food at very reasonable prices. Service is excellent and they offer a great early bird special along with live jazz music on weekends! Try it and you won't be disappointed.

“A Little bit of Milan in Miami Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

This place is absolutely incredible, from the wonderful and delightful hostess out front, greeting us like family, to the owner/chef (who is from Milan) coming out and willing to make a custom dish for one person in our group. The food was incredibly delicious, was not overly seasoned, since different people do have different palates, and just felt right at home here.

Will definitely be back, and this place was found by accident after having an VERY unpleasant experience at Valenitno Al Sure.

“TERRIFIC FOOD, CHARMING ATMOSPHERE, LIVE JAZZ, AL FRESCO TABLES OPTIONS”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Cantina 71, just off Collins Avenue (on not as busy 71st street) in Mid-Miami Beach is a delight. The hostess greeted me with warmth and Informed me that the live jazz was about to begin. The group, MO MORGEN & FRIENDS were terrific! They played light, relaxing music that complimented dinner nicely. The restaurant is small and intimate inside, I opted for a lovely sidewalk table al fresco, under the palms. While the menu has many selections, I had a terrific insalata verdura with the best olive oil, followed by pollo marsala e spaghetti pomodoro. Just delicious! Good job, Luca and I think you would really enjoy it! BUON APPITITO!

“Casual, simple Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012 via mobile

Nothing fancy- just traditional Italian fare in a casual atmosphere. The food was tasty and well prepared and the service was professional and attentive. We went on a weeknight and it was not crowded at all.
