“Delicious Italian Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

We were drawn into the place by the mother & son out front. They told us how the lasagna, gnocchi & ravioli are all homemade. That was about all they had to say. We also loved the small mom & pop feel. I got the gnocchi & my fiancé got the lasagna. We were both very satisfied with our meals. Service was avg to above avg. Cost was avg to above avg. All in all it was a great experience & we look forward to eating here again next time we're in SoBe.

“Average at best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

My wife and I chose this place because it was highly rated in tripadvisor. We were a little disappointed. We ordered the calamari and the carpaccio as appetizers, calamari was pretty bad, but carpaccio was ok. Though the main courses were better, the place still didnt live up to its reputation. We will not go again.

“a trap for turist ...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

not good at all! very expensive for what is served in the plate. we asked for soda mineral water, they give us flat water ... we asked for a ravioli pasta without sauce... we received pasta with sauce ... my wife took a sea bass with vegetable (28 dollars...), the portion was tiny and tasteless dish. This restaurant located in the pedestrian street of Miami Lincoln is a trap for turist.
I do not understand the 4.5 that are displayed in large letters on the entrance of the restaurant with the name of Trip Advisor as a quality guarantee ! Sorry for that but I felt abused by this huge poster .

Dear customer,
if we are a trap for tourists, my kindness prevents me to tell you who you really are.
Reguards.

“Savory food, lovingly served, kind of frantic setting outside on Lincoln Road on a Saturday night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

We really enjoyed the food (chose the lower priced items on their good menu) but it took a while to block out the constant foot traffic past us on a Saturday night. Try again on a quieter weekday. (Also had to get up twice to ask people to stop smoking -- not the restaurant's fault, but have gotten used to smoke free environments elsewhere.)
