“I wish Specchio Cafe was in my neighborhood.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

There were seven in our group and everyone was delighted. The service and the food were great. They didn't have a bottle of wine that I ordered, but their suggested replacement was perfect. My wife got a good look at the kitchen and was impressed by what she saw. They prepared a dish for her that wasn't on the menu. Our friends said that they hadn't had a meal like that since their last trip to Italy.

“Delicious Caprese Salad!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

Had a caprese salad and a seafood pasta for dinner followed by a mouth watering chocolate souffle for dessert. The meal kept getting better and better with every dish.

Great service as well! Would definitely return.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

Outstanding food and great service is the only way to describe this little gem in Surfside. Specchio is a must "go to" place if you visit Miami Beach.

“Transport Yourself to Italy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2014

Looks are deceiving. This little hole in the wall is not at all flashy but it is true Italian food at its best and once seated, it is kind of romantic. The service is good. The food is authentic and you will be pleased with any variety of good dishes they serve.
