The place is kind of hidden away at almost the end of Washington Ave and you may miss it if you are driving since it has just a window on the street They have an outside seating area, but because of the proximity with a traffic light, you are eating next to the exhausts of the vehicle waiting the green...

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
