“Italy in Miami Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

We walked by this place & I knew IMMEDIATELY that we needed to go there and they did not disappoint. The cheese comes from Italy once a week. The pizza was the absolute best we have had in years. a glorified margherita with eggplant, each succulent bite went down easier than the one before. The restaurant has tables inside and many outside. the menu is typical Italian and the staff seems to all be from Italy or have lived there. They put brown paper over the table cloths giving it a more rustic feel. U can watch the pizza chefs at work and the mural on the wall shows the exodus of the cheese from Italy. I do not repeat places often but I would have gone back tonight if I was still there.

“Delicious Food...but Conversation Impossible”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

The food at this place is, on the whole, delicious but I've rarely visited a noisier restaurant outside of Spain. If you can stand the din from clients who scream and yell at each other while watching soccer matches constantly being shown on a huge screen that dominates the small space, then--by all means--try this Italian eatery at least once. We couldn't handle the ruckus and ate as quickly as possible during our first visit. Several days later, assuming the locale wouldn't be so full of wild soccer fans at a different hour, we ate there a second time...but it made no difference. The noise is such that conversations are impossible. We won't go back.

Hello William,
Thank you very much for your feedback. I am really happy you enjoyed our food. Fratelli La Bufala strives to provide our customers with an authentic Italian experience and tip top customer service. However I am so sorry you could not enjoy your overall experience because of the noise. It may happen that our restaurant gets really busy on special events such as soccer games or big parties. That's why I suggest you to come during the week, when the restaurant is more tranquil , and give us another try.
Hope to see you soon
Best Regards
Antonio La Bufala
