“"Mamma mia" what a place!”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

For a quick trip to Italy's flavors, you should check this place in Miami Beach... I ordered a shrimp salad (very decent), the pizzas are a delight, the bufala mozarella cheese is great. I agree they should take a good look into not letting the pizza to get burned at the oven. Yet this is the very traditional way to have a pizza. So skip the carbonized pasta...
Service was good timely and prices are fair... not a pretentious place, very friendly and.
I will definitely come back again on my next trip to Miami.

“Pizza is worth going...”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

... but they just shouldn't burn the pizzas (at the bottom); it was a little too much. Staff was ok but nothing special; tip was already added (I don't like that). I wouldn't check it out again, except for a pizza to go.

“Friendly and Inviting”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Really warm and friendly atmosphere, appeared to be full of locals having a mid week night out. We stuck to the pizzas which were satisfying and tasty, , the nutella crepe for dessert was lovely. Would go back and recommend it for a nice low key supper with friends and family

“Delicious, authentic, friendly”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

We were visiting Miami Beach and found this restaurant after walking around a bit and we are so glad that we did! The staff spoke Italian and were very friendly and helpful. We were never in want of our glasses to be filled either. The food was AMAZING! I am a tiny eater, but I ate an entire pizza by myself. We wish we could stop by again. Be careful because a 17% tip is already included in your bill.

“pay attention to your bill”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

Really bad experience, i'm italian and I know the real good pizza, here the pizza is not bad but is prepared without real tomato sauce, no flavor, no tasty. Staff are crafty (pay attention) they suggest me an "out of the list" pizza with the same ingredients of the classic "Margherita" but at the end we discovered that the price was 8USD more than the regular "Margherita". Last but not least, they charged two times on my credit card the total of the dinner with two different amounts. Crazy! we usually don't go to have "Italian food" when we are abroad and this is the proof that we should continue to not go
