This place reminded us of our northern italy vacation couple years earlier...the food was just right in portions...the taste was authentic italian...the host and wait staff very friendly...service is timely and courteous...a tad pricey but that is true for almost every food place around miami beach...highly recommend.

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.

The restaurant is not really big but therefore it's really nice ambiented. The waitress are super friendly and know what tastes very good. 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
