Family owned Italian restaurant so popular that you need to get there early for dinner and not have to wait. Food is divine with great friendly service. A couple blocks off Collins Avenue. A most go if you are staying in the area,

Prima Pasta offers an amazing and delicious taste of the Italian cuisine for a very good and fair price. One of the greatest Italian restaurants in Miami Beach.

This restaurant has been in business for years in a town where most places are gone in a year or two. Consistency is key. The food is delicious and the setting feels more like New York City than Miami Beach. White table cloths, chandeliers, good service and free parking complete the package.

Nick was our waiter on this occasion and the Service was amazing, top notch. The bread is nice as a starter. The white sangria was delicious. I had the Caesar salad and it was a very good portion with a nice creamy dressing. My husband started with the meatballs and ricotta marinara and that was fantastic. Really nice red sauce.... More

Our meal here was fantastic. The crab ravioli was perfect and portions are very generous, but save room for the yummy creme brûlée and enjoy a glass or two of the sangria. Our waiter was efficient and courteous. Prices are very reasonable given the quality of the food. We braved a serious rain storm to dine here and it was... More

We went early for the discount menu which is really incredible value for money and perfect for a late Sunday lunch or early dinner. The appetizers and main courses were fantastic, good fresh homemade Italian food. Main... More
