Great Neapolitan pizze. Fresh products. Probably the best in town, you will have the real taste of Napoli with Italian speaking waiters.

The menu is comparable to any great pizzeria in Italy. I was raised in Italy and this place reminded me of home. We ordered pasta, pizza, and fish , nothing was below excellent. Even the brief vine list has all the key Italian pillars Brunello,...Barolo e amarone! The location in Miami Beach is incredible, and the prices very reasonable ! Daniele is a master pizzaiolo, and I will come back next time I am In town.More

We loved the pizza with fresh bufala mozzarella. The mixed green salad with basil dressing was so fresh and delicious. Fresh bread. Ate outside. We’ve been twice in 8 days that’s how much we love it!

Right before you hit the southern point of south beach miami, an impeccable restaurant calls your name. "Fratelli," you turn because you know they think that is your name. You go in. You are not in Miami anymore. You are in Naples, Italy. Casserta, or...a small town in Naples, Italy, where four ingredients can make the best pizza in the world. Julia Roberts shows this pizza in the movie "Live, Love, Learn." Great pasta, unbelievable eggplant. This place is on fire - literally and figuratively with its Coal Fired Oven from Italy. We met with Antonio, our waiter and he was wonderful - but all the staff there are so wonderful. Beautiful woman, good looking men, great ambience. A must see in South Beach, Miami.More

Top notch pizza, and good prices as just a few streets off the Ocean Drive. The nutella pizza balls dessert is also a must. Staff are great too.

This place will not let you down if you are looking for Neapolitan pizza the traditional way. It is a little piece of Italy we have in Miami. The pizzas are great and very reasonable prices. Last time I had the Fettuccine Mari E Monti...and it was just perfect! Highly recommend this place.More

My hubby and I come to Miami once a year and believe it or not one of the main reasons is to eat at this restaurant. My hubby is Italian from the Naples Italy area and this restaurant makes the most authentic pizza we can...find outside of Italy. The staff is wonderful also and always very friendly and attentive. They just reopened for inside dining and they have everything socially distanced properly and very clean. Constantino is the pizza chef and he makes a PERFECT PIZZA! We even have them make an extra one before we leave from dinner so we can put it in the fridge in the hotel room and have it for breakfast!!! It’s that good!!!More

I was looking for a good pizza place near the Miami Beach area and drove by this place on the way to the beach the previous night. I decided to stop by and give it a whirl... SO glad I did! I was flying solo...for the night so it was super easy to snag a table, even during prime time. Small and cozy on the inside with sidewalk seating on the outside. The staff is legit and everyone was very friendly and welcoming. It took a bit to receive my pizza but that was due to the number of people dining that evening. But boy was it worth the wait! It was done just perfectly and it was honestly, in my opinion, some of the best pizza I’ve had. After the pizza, I decided on a cappuccino which was equally amazing... give it a try if you’re in the area! I’ll definitely be back on my next trip to South Beach!More

Recommended by our Uber driver and thank goodness he mentioned it!! The best calamari I have even had, the meatballs were delicious, the mushroom pappardelle amazing with the pasta being so light!! Chianti was fabulous!! This is well worth the short walk from Ocean Drive!
