“what a difference on the main strip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

it has been a few years since I have been to South Beach, my husband and I started and the low end of the strip and walked by many burger and taco joints that all resembled each other that we had no interest in what I may have considered quality food until we came upon this wonderful gem! The service was also wonderful, the host moved a fan in our direction to keep cool and that we had a view of the soccer game too. We started with a seafood salad, which was very tasty- I had pasta and hubby a surf and turf special- all very good. We also took note that there is a hotel which looked excellent and further that the restaurant and hotel are a boutique brand of Marriot hotels called the autograph selection. very impressed. We took note that we should look to stay there when we come back to Miami Beach.

“Outstanding Restaurant in South Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

Food was exceptional as was the waitstaff. We sat at a table on the side walk, and was able to people watch. Etc. The prices are posted in front of each restaurant. We selected this restaurant for its clean appearance, and choices on the menu. I had a Cannalonni Dish, I think that is how it is spelled. The sauce had a mild sweetness to it, and was just outstanding. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

“Good food on the main strip.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014 via mobile

If you looking to eat on Ocean Drive, this is one of the better restaurants. My friend ha the Bolognese dish which was very good. I had the cavatelli pomodoro which was not that great. The wine however was excellent! I had the house Merlot which was from Italy. The service here is good and I would come back just to eat what my friend had.

I enjoied both italian and american disheses. Cooking is very well done, with big portions. It is tasty, but not too salty. They serve an excellent espresso (one shot, I'm Italian).
