“Good Italian in Miami Lakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

I came here for my birthday and I'm glad I did.
My husband and I have actually been to Italy so when we go to Italian restaurants we tend to compare them to what we actually experienced.
Overall I must say that I was pleased with Italy Today.
The decor itself made me feel like I was somewhere else with the painted ceiling and paintings that reminded me of Italy. The service was good. Our waiter was attentive and answered any questions we had regarding the food. The menu itself provides a great variety of choices -- from pasta dishes to chicken, meat and seafood -- there is something for everyone.
The staff surprised me when they came singing happy birthday with a delicious tiramisu dessert. As we were getting ready to leave a man was setting up his keyboard to play live music, which we heard a song before we left.
The location of the restaurant is convenient as well. It is right on Main Street in Miami Lakes so the movie theater is right there if you want to catch a movie before or after dinner.
I will definitely come here again.

“BETTER THAN MOST AVERAGE ITALIAN RESTAURANTS”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

This restaurant has been at the same location undedr different management for many years. Presently, the food is pretty good, although It can be spotty. I think it depends of who the chef is at the moment. It gets busy on weekends and for lunch. Service can be good or not so good. Portions are large and prices are in line.
