A long-time key resident told me, “I’m taking you to the best restaurant in the key,” And after our dinner at La Scala I have to agree. A small, low-key place, everything was delicious. The service was prompt and excellent. It did get crowded on...a Friday night and space is small, I was glad we’d booked early, social distance is not great. I will return.More

Excellent food and excellent service! This old world Italian restaurant is a great little find! It’s a small quiet restaurant with a great menu tucked away in a strip mall. The aroma of garlic and basil fill the air and scream authentic. Our server was...helpful and attentive. They helped select a Chianti to accompany our entrees. At our servers recommendation, we chose the osso buco which was tender and well seasoned. It was accompanied with a creamy mushroom risotto. We concluded the evening with a sampling of several desserts. The key lime pie was awesome. We would definitely return to this restaurant.More

Small little place with excellent service. Fried calamori was an excellent start, Salaads and bread with dipping sauce was great and we enjoyed all 5 dinners. Frutti Di Mare...Fettucine Bolognesse, Chicken Piccatta....all were excellent. We will certainly be back here when back on Key Biscayne.

The fish in this small Italian restaurant is fantastic as well as the cozy atmosphere. Reservations recommended since it gets very full on weekends

Had the beet Osso Buco that I have ever eaten! My Italian connoisseur friends were raving about the taste of the food and wines offered! Best little Italian secret in Key Biscayne, Florida and all of Miami!

From the minute you walk into this little gem you feel at home. The waiting staff were super friendly, very knowledgable and incredibly attentive. The salads were fresh and tasty and the menu was filled with great Italian favourites. I had the lasagna and it...was definitely Nona's secret recipe! The waiters kept us in stitches the whole visit. Grazie!More

Unfortunately Vito retired. The new owner Chandra however has managed to secure a very experienced and capable chef for his restaurant. Give it a try.
