I drink Peroni and was sure the draught Peroni I was served was not Peroni but I could be wrong, I actually ordered the bottled stuff but didn't ask for it to be... More

Went last night, and had an amazing 3 course meal starting from polpo alla toscana, fiocchi di rapera & even getting dessert with my friend. Frank was our waiter and made great suggestions to pair the dishes with wines & was able to even make my russian friend speak spanish, which was an accomplishment in it's own. We'll have to... More

Sunday night visit with friends visiting MB from the Keys for the weekend. Fabulous authentic Italian cuisine. Beef carpaccio was outstanding, lobster ravioli was delish, buffalo mozz salad was fresh and yummy, pear stuffed pasta was to die for, actually everything that touched our mouths made them rejoice. On top of all this 'Virginia' was the best of all waitresses... More

I went there with my husband and a couple of friends for dinner last friday. The waiting list is long but the atmosphere of the bar compensates the wait. The beer was chilly ( hard to find in Miami ), the bar atender is a very nice guy. Time flew and we got a table. Food was amazing. We had... More
