We had a great dinner here on our last night in Miami. The homemade rigatoni was the best we have ever had. You have to try it. The service was exceptional. Just an overall great experience.

Probably the best chefs in Miami. Everything is amazing, but you have to shre your table with people you do not know, and for me is a turn off.
