    Shared the tuna carpacchio pizza, which was interesting but perhaps too much truffle oul? The veal ravioli was amazing. The dessert sample enourmous.

    The whole experience was great. Food was delicious, the servers very attentive, food arrived fast, and the drinks menu really impressive. The ambiance and the candlelit atmosphere were romantic and cosy. However, i would recommend to expedite the process of seating for the guests who have made reservations. We waited to get seated around 15 mins although we could see that there were a lot of outdoors tables available at that time. I guess when you make a booking, you expect to be seated straight away. Every other aspect of dining at Bianca was really outstanding.

Amazing service, great menu selection and wonderful food. Bianca is always my go-to when I have guests visiting out from out of town. Never disappoints!

    Dined on 10/12/2014
    We REALLY wanted to like this place, as it occupies the space formerly occupied by the iconic Blue Door, one of our all time favorites. Sadly, Bianca is a poor substitute. We dined there on a Sunday night on a busy holiday weekend in South Beach. The Delano was dead, and the inside dining room was closed. They suggested we sit in the lobby, we declined. We were seated outside on the back deck, which for some strange reason is a real "hot box". Sunday nights are apparently now DJ nights; there were only four occupied tables in the place, and we were all screaming over the volume. We asked the manager to turn down the volume, he was, in response, pompous, arrogant and argumentative. The food is OK, not great; kitchen goes heavy on the salt.

    Food was good to very good but prices were equivalent to Manhattan and the food was not of the same caliber. The wine list was the most egregious I have seen in a long time. 300-400% markups are simply bad form. Not too mention having the wrong vintage of some wines. For example they had listed a 2010 Oreno for $280 only for me to find out they were out of it but did have the 2012. Oreno 2011 can be purchased for <$80 at multiple locations. I can understand the charging $160 or $175, but $280 is over the top. You might ask why order this bottle. I hosted a lot of big red wine drinkers and the California Cabs were completely overpriced and quite frankly the ones on their list were not that good. Can't and will not go back...

    Servers and hostesses outstanding, but if you want the absolute BEST ask for Jason or Giana. HOWEVER, BEWARE!!! The socially inept manager will be obnoxiously focused ONLY on tables of interest and/or personal friends. Don't expect him to come by and say hello, even if there's only four tables left... BUT do expect him to be loud and distracting and taking selfies with buddies. Other than that the food is amazing, great spot and once again.... if you want to be taken over the top get Jason to wait on you, or Giana.

    My two friends and I went to this restaurant on a Friday evening around 9pm - it was a bit loud due to the music in the lobby and pool, but this did not bother us at all. We chose to sit inside. Staff, Wine and Food were amazing! One of the best salmon dishes I ever had - friends ordered a pasta dish and chicken - both were also excellent. Would def recommend and return.

    We spent a week in Miami and made the mistake of having our last dinner here based on a recommendation. It was off season so it wasn't busy but the service was slow, even at check in they were snooty, our waters and drinks were empty the majority of the meal. The Octopus was awful, the Lobster was over cooked and the salmon was undercooked. Not one dish between 4 people besides the bread was good. I would not recommend this restaurant it's over priced for low quality food and service

    We went to Bianca for brunch. It was my birthday weekend in South Beach and we wanted to have a nice finish to the weekend by having brunch at the Delano. Instead, we had a sobering experience of bad service and overpriced underwhelming brunch. The food in general was good but not overwhelming. For $75 per person plus 18% gratuity - and $6 cups of coffee that are not part of the $75, you can do a lot better elsewhere. The service is really bad but what is even worse is their scarce presentation. It's if they don't really want you to eat. The serving plates are the size of a bread plate, so expect to make several trips if you want to actually eat anything. The deserts were completely disappointing. Don't event bother.

    Wonderful dinner, great wine and while we were hoping to sit insider we got a great romantic table outside which was fine. The Branzino was delicious as were the appetizers. Service was polished. Not a cheap dinner in fact, pricey but in line with the other high end restaurants. Great for those special dinners.

    A friend and I dined here at 10pm on a Wednesday night. We sat outside. The decor was nice and the music the DJ was playing was fun and not too loud. Our Italian waiter was very helpful in narrowing down our choices. We ended up ordering and sharing the meatballs (fantastic marinara with a kick), FDR roll (one of the best sushi rolls I've eaten), the branzino (baked in a salt crust), and the white asparagus in parmesan (deliciously fondue-like sauce). The drinks were kinda pricey at $17 for a vodka soda.

    We had a great view overlooking the pool area during our brunch. Food was great especially the tomato and mozzarella salad. The olives and cheese were also spectacular. The complimentary sangria was a very large glass also very good. There was a large selection of seafood - crab claws and large shrimp on ice. It would have been nice to have melted butter for dipping. The grilled seafood was good as well. The lobster had what I thought to be old bay seasoning which ruined the taste. There was a table of fresh sushi. Last but not least the dessert table had a bunch of goodies.

    Great restaurant even though the food was spotty. Some dishes were superb, some average, and one ineditable. Service was top class and the prices astronomical. A place to go for a special event, or to impress a date or business acquaintance, but the pricing is so outlandish even someone who can afford it blushes. Inside seating is limited so go when the evening is not humid or you will be miserable.

    Our Sever Ali was wonderful. Very nice guy - attentive but not too fussy. Remembered our surprise bday request. Our very 1st server was also very good. The Branzino & Tiramisu were..meh. I wanted to be wowed more for the price. I've had much better Branzino for $32 as opposed to $44 and the potatoes were as dry as if they had been re-roasted. The house salad was better. I would go back to try Brunch. It's really All ambience - classy but relaxing. I would have stayed for hours and drank wine had it not been for the whorish beehive of girls who came in later to pre-club, changing the entire energy with their strident voices and fake kisses - ugh- but that's not the restaurant's fault. Go early. Eat light. Drink wine. Leave early. Nice time.

    My boyfriend took me there for dinner while vacationing in Miami and I was thoroughly impressed! The food was amazing- I got the salmon and he got a fish and both of them had us drooling. I had a wonderful glass of prosecco to start, as well as a glass of Sauvignon Blanc after. The server was terrific- he was knowledgeable, friendly and didn't hover, but was always there when it was the right time to be there. Lastly, the restaurant itself was amazing! Everything was so classy and elegant.
