I have been coming here with my family for a while. What I like about this place that the food & service are constantly good. Reasonably priced and great atmosphere - Italian charm is in the air.

It is not easy to find a real Pizza Napolitana in a big holiday place such as Miami Beach. Nevertheless, and thanks to a large Italian population (both local and floating), Fratelli La Bufala meets all the expectations. How? With very fresh ingredients, true mozzzarella di bufala, and a delicious crust cooked in their wood ovens. There are other dishes... More

Service took a century to set up the table. After that, the pizza ordered arrived cold. Sugestion: avoid the place.

The pizza is similar to what I had in Napoli, Italy. Yes, that means delicious as they are known for the best pizza in the world. The meatballs were also delectable. Cozy spot, great service. I recommend it.

Service was quick, professional & polite...food: I got the fettuccini Mari E Monti and the baby octopus was so over cooked it was not edible. My husband got the tagliatelle alla bolognese and described it as boring and one dimensional in flavor. You do get a free glass of proseco if you check in on Yelp, however it was flat... More

Starter (mozzarella di buffala) and pastas (carbonara) were excellent even if everybody takes a pizza! They look great... For our Pasta thw only thing we could say is there was not a lot in the plate for the price. The service was good, nothing to say. We ll definitely go back

I've been to the one in Bari, Italy so I had high expectations and this one did not disappoint. Ordered the margherita pizza and cannoli's, which were really good. Definitely a great spot for pizza.

We had an excellent lunch at La Bufala. My Ravioli in sage and butter sauce was simply outstanding . And our Italian waitress was wonderful and served me a delicious Pinot Grigio. We loved it and you should try it !
