Very attentive service and checked on us often. We sat outside and a good crowd. Great location as we walked from Hilton Bently. Wil... More

I love coming here for lunch. The food is delicious and the service is superb. The gnocchi is tender and melts in your mouth. The warm bread is very good as well.

We eat here on 3 occasions during our 6 night stay in south beach. Each time we tried something different from the menu, all were delicious. Excellent service, perfect ambiance and great portion sizes. Restaurant owner recognised us on our second visit and couldn't be more welcoming, he even topped our wine glasses up which was not added to the... More

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!
