Fish of the Day
like always good food, good service and one of the best margaritas I had in a long time
Great as always. Lobster raviolis and the fish of the day is always great. Also the cheesecake is always a must. Also service impeccable with our beloved Todor!
Great Food and service. A true GEM
Great experience. Staff went beyond to get us seated due to COVID limits. Amazing food.
Food and service is great.
Everything was great as usual. The best Tuan Tartar with lots of flavors and the touch of capers was excellent. Great job at the social distancing we feel great coming here, like home. Also our very special waiter Todor is absolutely the best service you can have.
Service was poor. Asked for water and never received it. Food overpriced.
Love it here. Owners are great!
Love this restaurant. Always a must place to visit when we come into town. The ricotta cheesecake is the best cheesecake I’ve ever tried. A must get!!!!!
Love . Great local and everyone so nice
The restaurant is very popular with locals and so it gets really busy on the weekends. And while the we food always tastes excellent, the service suffers at times, e.g., getting seated, getting the first glass of water, refills, etc.
My mother’s 72nd Birthday. Everything was amazing...
When we want authentic delicious Italian food, with impeccable service we come here! We love this Miami Beach Institution!!
Overall, we had a very nice experience. Food was very good; wine list was excellent. The only negative factor was the noise level, which we found to be rather high.
Absolutely delightful meal & service. Modest pricing for such great quality. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
Cafe Avanti is one of the only longstanding, family friendly, well managed, great service, and consistently enjoyable Italian restaurants on Miami Beach. They make everyone feel like a regular
A gem in Miami Beach. Loved by locals and for a very good reason; The food is excellent and not pretentious, the staff is very welcoming and the service is outstanding.
Classic Italian food and ambience. Service was a little slow but it was a busy Valentine's Day.
Excellent all around. Good food great service. 100% recommend
It was guud
Great local restaurant and bar, great quality food with professional service. A little pricey for a neighborhood restaurant
Very packed and noisy on a Saturday night where we had dinner with friends. It took awhile to get served, but the food was excellent as usual.
Consistently excellent. Has never been disappointing in all the years we have eaten here. Food is always prepared well. Service is always attentive. The Chicken Parmesan is one of the best in the city, a wonderful thick piece of chicken breast cooked to perfection.
Other meat and seafood dishes also wonderful.
This place is fantastic. The food is always delicious and the prices are very reasonable. I make sure that I stop at this restaurant every time I come to Miami beach.
While I never order chicken in an Italian restaurant I make an exception for Cafe Avanti. Their Pollo Avanti is an amazing dish, made with chicken scallopini and eggplant with a very flavorful brown sauce. I also find their polpette appetizer (veal and beef meatballs) an irresistible item.
I recently took some friends to this restaurant and they had nothing but wonderful things to say about it.
I could not recommend it more highly.
A mid-Beach Italian favorite that doesn’t seem to go stale. The menu items all are well prepared and consistently well prepared, a hallmark of skill.
On our last visit we enjoyed the Stuffed Artichoke, Straciatella soup, Salmon Grilled, Veal Milanese as much as on prior visits. Ask for Ruben as your server. He’s the best.
It can get noisy. Acoustics could be more sympathetic to dining.
Street parking or parking lots are close by.
We enjoyed our food. We asked that they expedite our order and they got us right in and out. Thanks for the great service.
Food excellent Very enjoyable evening.
This is a nice spot for dinner for family or friends. Friendly staff, good food and great service. The chicken parm is what many rave about. I had the very good bistecca a la fiorentina and my wife had the lobster risotto. Both were very well prepared and tasty. My linguini in white clam sauce appetizer was great. I'll go back when I'm next in Miami.
Always can count on great food and great service.
Best Italian in Miami
We were celebrating a Special birthday and as always Capital Grille did not did disappoint . The service , the ambience , and the food were exceptional . Everyone was happy and looking forward to returning for another occasion . We opted for the salmon and crab /lobster cakes as our mains , not steak . Even though Capital Grille is a traditional steak House their fish offerings are exceptional .
Very classy restaurant with linens, nice adult ambiance, great wait staff, and excellent food and wine at a reasonable price. The best value on Miami Beach.
Food was excellent as well as our server, Desi.
Like a trip back to the 70s or 80s. Very old fashioned. Dull decoration and ambience. Mediocre food. Uninspiring menu with no healthy options. I had no idea such places existed any more. Brief and ho-hum wine list.
We had a great meal and wonderful time. We are from CT but now in places where you can’t get good Italian. It reminded us of home and we appreciated the classic and well prepared Italian dishes. Our waiter Desi was great and get their signature sauce named after him.
Great food and great service! A real locals place
Consistantly very good quality of food and amazing service. Todor is an amazing service provider. The Lobster ravioli, Salmon and fish of the day very good. Never disappoints and always delivers.
This restaurant is always great. It is a neighborhood gem that you can always count on the quality and service.
