I had heard and read rave reviews of this restaurant so I wanted to see and taste for myself. First, we were greeted and felt special, the ambiance was great. But the food!!!!.....AMAZING!!!!....we were four on the table and everyone ordered something different from the...menu... Not one person was disappointed...from the garlic rolls, appetizers ( fig salad with Gorgonzola cheese and caramelized pecans and Prosciutto di Parma )..after I ordered the Ravioli stuffed with Osso Bucco in a light saffron sauce that was out of this world. My husband had Risotto Frutti di Mare, exceptional...Someone else asked for the homemade lasagna ( made by the owner’s mom) with a bechamel sauce...so tasty, not heavy on any sauce. I’ll definitely return to this quaint hidden gem on Calle Ocho...and 34 Avenue...want to try the whole menu.... This is a true five star placeMore

It's a small little place but the ambiance is very romantic. I visited Miami for my 50th birthday and this place hit the mark to celebrate.

Outstanding in all respects!! We know of many good Italian restaurants in the Greater Miami area, but this Venezuelan-owned family restaurants is definitely among the 1%. A solid 9.8, as close to a 10 I can rate. Great value, flavors and service.

I have been here a few times and nice to see that the owners remember us. the kids loved the food and once again the food didn't disappoint us. I was a bit sad that you ran out of my favorite dessert, but it's ok....I will return!!!More

Wonderful small Italian restaurant owned by Venezuelan brothers in the middle of Cuban Little Havana. What a combination!! Food is amazing, service is superb!! Try the raviolis: different kinds, home-made just like all the desserts.

We were staying at a nearby hotel to fly out tomorrow and their restaurant menu was less than inspiring so we ventured out via TripAdvisor. So glad we did. I had the chicken parm and my had the lobster ravioli. Both were excellent. The garlic...bread they serve we could have kept eating it with a bottle of wine. The service qas excellent the waitresses were very attentive and knowledgeable. Only disappointment was they didn't have cannoli. When we fly out of Miami we will be back. Hidden gem for sure!More

A group of us was spending a night in Miami on the way to a Caribbean sailing trip. One member of our party was in charge of dinner and she reserved a table for us at Red Carpet Italian Restaurant. We were a bit put...off by the location in a strip mall and by the fact that only two tables were full when we arrived at 7. But once we saw the menu and met the people we were quickly won over. Everything we ordered was delicious and the Finocchi Di Pera (homemade pasta stuffed with pear and gorgonzola covered with a truffle cream sauce) might well be the best pasta dish I have ever tasted. It was a real delight of a restaurant. When we left about 9, every table was full and people were waiting!More
