Service was exceptional. Sat outside on a beautiful evening. Very quaint feel. Prices were the most reasonable of the entire trip. The pizzas were excellent. Husband had some type of pasta dish with Salmon, he loved. Gluten free options on pasta and pizza. Calamari was excellent. It was a great meal, affordable, perfect portion sizes. Excellent, excellent Italian.

What a great find. Delicious food and excellent service. Family of 4 (adults) had a glass of the house Sauvignon blanc which was really good. Try the cheese tortellini with pear, one of the best pasta dishes I've tried. Went here after a weekend visit to Miami, we're all still talking about it a week after!

Awesome, authentic Italian cuisine and pizza's. The staff is super nice and very attentive. Great specials daily, many homemade pasta dishes, salads and seafood. Outstanding in every way. You would be cheating yourself if you didn't try it.

Very good food, nice terrasse. In a more quiet area of SoBe which is nice. Whenever we go there are always Italian customers that seem to be locals so this is always a good sign.

Also they are native Sicilians so they know how to make good italien food. In my opinion the best fritturina di cambatetti i've ever eatn. Even in south Europe like Italy/ Spain/ Croatia/ Greece and Portugal i've... More

We stumbled across this restaurant just walking around South Beach after a day's sightseeing in Miami and decided to give it a try. It was a great experience. My husband is very very fussy about his pizzas!! and the one from this restaurant is now in his top two pizzas ever! The deserts were also very good, he had tiramisu... More

This cute italian restaurant has a terrance on the street, so we stopped here for lunch. We had pizza, ravioli and spaghetti. Everything was tasty, just ravioli portion was quite small. The prices are very good and staff is friendly. I Recommend.
