We went for the early bird special - the portions are huge and delicious. We had Nicolas Cea as our server and he was outstanding! Prompt, courteous, friendly with great suggestions.
Best value in Miami. Strongly suggest you go but make reservations as it can get busy especially on the weekend.

Cafe Prima Pasta delivered the trifecta of a dining experience - delicious food, outstanding service and a warm, pleasant atmosphere. We were promptly greeted by Giuseppe when we arrived. He welcomed us as if we were family, although it was just our first visit to the restaurant. The dining room is large, but with many smaller areas which gave it a cozy feel. I felt like I was in a old neighborhood restaurant in Chicago or Philly. Very comfortable.

Our server, Christian, was great. Personable, attentive and professional, Christian was knowledgable about the wines, the menu and offered some detailed suggestions that were quite helpful as the menu is large.

We started with the meatball & ricotta appetizer which was very good. My husband had a linguini with shrimp entree that he really enjoyed. I ordered the veal Parmesan which was excellent. The tomato sauce was robust and the veal was prepared perfectly. The portions are very generous and we brought home enough for lunch today. For dessert we shared a wonderful tiramisu which was more cake-like, and not drown in syrupy liqueur. Delish!

Overall, we really had a lovely evening and cannot wait to return and bring friends. This will become a regular destination for us. I just wish we had not waited so long to try it!

Wonderful restaurant for all occasions...we have been there as a romantic dinner and we have been there with our children. This is a five star restaurant. The food is excellent and the service is amazing. Andreu and Douglas were our servers and they gave us incredible service. I highly recommend this restaurant. Every time I go I always want to return.

My penne alla vodka was great, the sauce was amazing, and the tiramisu was the best I've ever had. Our waiter Johnny was fantastic and the service was unlike any other.
