    If you are visiting Miami Beach...South Beach don't miss dining at this small, intimate restaurant. Luca, the owner, arrived 6 months ago from Milan and he has the magic touch. The food is really delicious...all pasta is freshly made each morning by Luca. And, hubby and I have eaten more than our fair share of tiramisu and Luca makes the best we have ever had. What are you waiting for? Make a reservation for this charming restaurant. You will not be disappointed.

    The food was delicious. Best pizza I've had in Miami Beach. We are returning shortly, have recommended it to friends. The warmth of the servers was an added plus.

    I scheduled a party for 20 not knowing that this size would take up the whole place. Only 16 showed - of which 3 never got the dinner they ordered! The staff - all 3 of them - struggle with English. No explanation of what happened. The food wasn't bad but the food delivery was fumbled.

    The prix fixe menu allowed no choice for the diner, and was structured such that we got small samplings of everything on the menu as opposed to selecting options for the courses. Half of the food was either not to our taste or generally unimpressive, which was certainly not worth the $65 they charged, and to top it all off we left hungry. The service, while sweet and well-intentioned, was aloof and we had to repeat requests to multiple servers to get water or get the bill. I wouldn't be so vocally negative if it hadn't been a $65 dinner with additional, generous gratuity on top of that. For that price, I usually expect to a sense of satisfaction from the meal and being impressed by the wait staff, neither of which were the case.

    The strong reviews for Amami must be written by friends and family. Unfortunately, this is a very weak restaurant. Food was below average. No flavor. No sauces. Order of service was off base. It ended up being a typical South Beach restaurant that calls you in and takes advantage of you. Do not go.

    The food was fine, but not good enough for me to go back. The staff was very friendly, but inattentive. They kept putting the food in front of the wrong person. We were the only table in the restaurant, but I still had to stand up to ask for something. Two of the servers saw me standing at the counter. They just kept on talking to each other, until I said, "Excuse me." Overall, not bad, but not great.

    This isn't the typical flash and sizzle of a Miami restaurant, so when we walked up to it we paused. That said, it was a nice break from "Miami Normal" and really felt like we were in a small Italian family restaurant on vacation in Italy. The food is truly Italian, our server was as warm as any Italian would be in his own restaurant in the old country. We had a true "experience" and loved the place!

    Party of 6 celebrating my father's birthday. The service was impeccable, the waiter recommended the Blue crab linguine and it was definitely a hit at our table. The spinach ravioli was also delicious. We will definitely be returning and recommending to our friends. At the end of the night they played Happy Birthday for my dad over the speakers of the restaurant and brought him a wonderful tiramisu. The manager and waiter also gave him a bottle of their in-house olive oil as a gift.
