“Excellent Italian restaurant specializing in water buffalo cheese and meat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

I've had water buffalo milk in India and it is delicious, but I had never had water buffalo cheese and meat until I went to this restaurant. It is excellent and served as a topping on pizzas, as a steak, or as a cheese and bread appetizer. I had a salad with artichokes, buffalo cheese, etc and it was delicious. My husband and I were with another couple and we all enjoyed the food, along with the outdoor seating and excellent wait staff. The interior of the restaurant is sophisticated and comfortable.

“Good food, mediocre service.”

The food was good, but getting the waiters attention was quite the challenge. They were very accommodating for our large group

“Best of the breed for pizza and pasta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

At the busy intersection of 5th and Washington is this phenomenal italian trattoria with the finest mozzarella I have ever had outside of Tuscany. Everything is fresh, seasoned just right and served this authenticity. We have been there several times and no question the best pizza in Miami Beach.

“Burrata Piccola anyone? I did not know what I was missing until I tried it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

Had a late nite stop here, having noticed the crowds there over the past few nights. We were welcomed right away, made to feel at home. The restaurant has a great feel about it, you can watch the pizza being prepared from your tables and you also have a view into the kitchen. We started with Burrata Piccola which is layman's terms is a fresh Italian cheese, made from mozzarella and cream. The outer shell is solid mozzarella while the inside contains both mozzarella and cream. This was served on a bed of fresh garden greens and tomatoes, with oil and vinegar on the side. They only serve this a few times a week as the burrata is flown in from Italy, so if you have the chance to try it the night that you are there, please do! We also had a Capricciosa pizza (Artichoke, mushroom and ham) pizza along with some Peroni draft beer. From start to finish, it was just wonderful. Service was excellent, food was excellent, my tummy is full .... what more can one ask for?
