We selected Crust based on previous reviews and we were not disappointed; in fact Crust exceeded expectations all around. Our server Jose was attentive, but not intrusive, and was super professional. He brought the kind of service that happens at the very best, most exclusive...restaurants. The food was excellent; Fughi pizza and salad was beautifully prepared. The owners was busy, but not frantic. It was truly a beautiful experience.More

Amazing. Had a great dinner last night at Crust. The food was very tasty and of high quality. Portions will last for 2 more meals, honestly and I'm a pretty big eater. The prices are more than reasonable. Great atmosphere and the service we got...from Beau was impeccable and kinda fun. If you're in Miami and don't go, you have no idea what you're missing. Just read the reviews and if they don't convince you I don't know what will. It's what convinced me to drive down from Delray Beach to just have dinner. Enjoy!!!More

My husband and I had our anniversary dinner here and everything - from the food to the ambience to the service was amazing. The host, Anita, greeted us like family and our server, YamI provided competent , informative service throughout our meal. Her menu suggestions...were on point and very helpful in sorting through the extensive menu. We started with the burrata and prosciutto appetizer followed by the gnocchi and the chicken piccata. OMG the food was so delicious and the portions were enormous! Dessert was an incredible chocolate cake that melted in your mouth. I forgot to mention the garlic rolls smothered in butter!! I totally understand why this restaurant is booked solid! We will definitely return. Thank you Anita and Klime for a truly memorable meal.More

Famous for their GARLIC KNOTS and SHRIMP CAKES. Delicious, soft, fluffy. The shrimp cakes are surrounded by a red and white sauce, each bite is the perfect bite. These are a must try. The pizza has a European taste- so good. Owner is an absolute...gem. She spent time talking to us, had a dessert shot on the house after dinner. She was so marvelous. Hospitality at its finest.More

We had the best meal of our trip to Miami at Crust. I had the greatest Margarita pizza of my life. Fresh mozzarella, red sauce and olive olive with just the right amount of basil and tomato. I honestly will be thinking about this pizza...for a long time. My dining companion had perfectly cooked salmon with spinach risotto. Delicious. The minestrone soup had so many delicious, fresh roasted veggies, not a drop left. Yami at the bar was beyond fabulous. She was so professional, warm and friendly and will take great care of you. She was so on top of her game, bar tending and serving. The owner was so kind and welcoming. Large portions-you more than get your money’s worth. Disappointed we didn’t have room for dessert. Reservations are a mustMore

Best Italian restaurant in Miami!!! Amazing options, the best dishes!! All in one stop when it comes to Italian! Quality is perfect!!! Worth every dollar!! Keep in mind that the dishes are HUGE, you will be feeding your entire family off of one plate of...left overs LOL no but seriously! It's crazy to say this is their only location!! So if you're looking for the best style Italian, I definitely recommend this over any other in Miami!! Located by the river. The staff is amazing as well, this place is just too good! Crust pizza is a MUST TRY!!More

Wow! Absolutely fantastic. I would recommend making a reservation, I was my myself and assumed I could eat at the bar - but it was already booked with reservations. This was a sign that it was good, I decided to wait and eat outside. I...wanted to try everything on the menu but ended up going with a recommendation from my waitress, meatball pizza - everything about it was perfect, the sauce rivaled a house-made sauce I had at a restaurant Italy…just. so. good. I can’t wait to come back next time I am in town to try more menu items! The customer service makes a difference - please keep it up!More
