My brother had wanted to try this restaurant for many years. In our family, we travel to a destination to eat for each milestone birthday and chose this location for his 50th. Romeo is very personable and asks what each diner likes or doesn't like, then crafts the meal around those facts.

The six course meal was absolutely delightful from start to finish! Our favorites were the salmon carpaccio for the first course and the duck course was outstanding.

All in all, we loved this restaurant and would recommend it from a family of foodies.

This little restaurant on the fringes of Coral Gables is a wonderful treasure in the Miami culinary landscape. In a small space with warm lighting and an intimate atmosphere chef Romeo Majano will spoil your taste buds and make you want to come back soon. He visits every table to find out what his guests won't eat and then he will go back to his kitchen to create a 4 or 6 course meal (your choice) with a surprising variety of ingredients, textures, scents and flavors.

It's a dinner symphony of foods. A nice and reasonably priced wine list adds to the enjoyable offerings, and we allways have the chocolate souffle for desert - but then you can ask Romeo for other recommendations. You'll love the entire experience!

It is famous, but to expensive for what really is, the food is ok, they do not have a menu, so the chef will tell you depending on what do you like, what he will cook. Again food is good, small restaurtant.

We arrived early that night and were immediately welcomed by the staff and owner. He explained that there was no set menu but that we could express any preferences or things we did not like. Every single dish we got after that met or exceeded the expectations. A true authentic Italian culinary experience in Miami. We certainly will come back.

6 course Prix Fixe that is tailored to your liking with a personal interview by the Chef (who will also personally bid you farewell at the end of the evening). The food may not be cutting edge, but it is creative and delicious. Portion size was more than adequate (I am not sure why they downplay the quantity aspect when you are seated). They also portray the food as northern Italian but it's only partly true (blackened tuna with seaweed salad and starfruit compote was unexepected and deliciuous but not not northern Italian). It is a creative, delicious, satisfying and very personable dining experience. Don't miss this one!
