“One of the best meals I have ever eaten.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

I am known to be a fussy eater and really picky - and not in a good way. I was going to go for a pasta dish, raviolli or gnocci or something, but I picked out 'Pollo Satimbocca a Romana' and it was just delicious. A combination of all my favourite ingredients, chicken, prosciutto, mozzerela, sage, vegetables - but the sauce was heavenly. My husband had grilled seabass that came out in a platter and was de-boned infront of us. The service was exceptional, and at times we had 3-4 waiters attending to us, when the food came or plates were collected. A fabulous experience, away from the South Beach strip which can get tedious after a few days. The restaurants along the strip are over priced for the food they serve, therefore we were delighted to have stumbled across this gem. A buzzing and vibrant atmosphere, some wonderful service and exceptional food.

“Great food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Step out of Miami Beach and step in to Italy.The décor is great with wine bottles, meat and cheese counters, real Italian staff. You are going to find a great athmosphere and italian food done right with fresh ingredients and authenticity. The menu is extensive showing what italian cuisine means. Everything we eat was very tasty and prepared to perfection. Our kid just loved the food there. We don’t usually get back to the same restaurant when we stay just a few days in a place but this time we returned even if it wasn’t quite cheap. The service was also great – Deyan, our waiter was the best.

Great food, great service, great experience. Highly recommended.

The atmosphere was very nice. A cute real Italian place. Very very expensive. Wine was awful.

“Fast Food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

Very disappointing service. Plates were removed before we had finished by waiters staying behind us with the only aim to speed up the turnover of tables. This is an italian fast food with a poor food quality. For USD 400 we spent for 5 meals we could expect some respect
