What can I say about this restaurant except that I love the ambiance, the service and of course the food. Located in Coral Gables near the University of Miami. This is a place where Dwayne Johnson used to frequent went he was a student at UM. Very casual place.

I want to share responsibility for the non-tasty food I ate by admitting I should have ordered the pizza which they are apparently known for. Instead, I ordered the crispy chicken sub and my husband ordered a meatball sub. He only could eat half of his as he said it tasted terrible. I then gave him the other half of... More

Crowded and loud just what you'd expect at a "old school" pizza shop. Good food garlic knots are amazing no short of garlic! Btw I'm a UNC fan in a Miami U joint!

Ate there while on a vacation trip with our grandchildren. Fun and for a family dinner. Food was delicious and very reasonable. Atmosphere is casual. We really enjoyed it!

Whoever runs this place has a motto in life: Garlic is life, the rest is just details. If that's also your motto, you may want to go to this place regularly. The food was pretty good for the most part. The rolls were good, but holy moly, I've never seen so much garlic in my life. My Stromboli came with... More

First time here after living in Miami almost my entire life - why? I don't know; but, on that they we felt like shorts, t-shirts and garlic rolls. And when those garlic rolls made it to the table we simply devoured them!!! Ambiance is totally relaxed and shorts, t-shirts and flip flops are a perfect attire. Just get there and... More

Was quick and tasty! Very nice employees who went extra mile to make sure customers were happy. Brought plates, napkins, plastic forks, etc all with the pizza since I was staying in a hotel.

I left Miami for college in 1979 but my parents still live there. I have been traveling down to South Miami a lot more often to visit them. Their ability to cook for themselves is slowly diminishing. The well-known chain restaurant "C" they go for Italian pick-up in South Miami is not only expensive but just plain unacceptable. I'll rake... More

This place is amazing! Pizza and pastas are really good. I recommend the seafood pasta. One entree is enough for two. The deluxe pizza is our favorite. Price is good also. Go online and get coupons.
