Had family in town for a visit, decided to go to Cara Mia. As usual the service and the food were great. We had a party of 10 and did not wait to anything. Our waiter was great on top of everything. Thank you for a memorable evening.

This was our second time at Cara Mia Trattoria and at both times we had a good experience. The food is authentic italian and delicious. The service is Excellent. Restaurant is small, but nicely decorated with a pleasant atmosphere. It is located away from the touristic areas of Miami Beach, so it doesn't get too crowded and noisy. We'll recommend this little part of Italy to all our friends and family.

We went to this restaurant on a recommendation and it was fantastic. Food was wonderful, tasty and served HOT! There is not much ambiance but if you are looking for a great meal - do not miss out. Our waiter Max was great!

The salads and pasta were delicious. Pasta cooked perfectly and the salads were fresh and dressing was outstanding. Portions are generous. Genuine Italian. We will return!

Well done, authentic Italian cooking served by a friendly and accommodating wait staff. We dined on the patio, which is quiet and very cosy.

The food was just ok and the service not very good. For example, they asked us if we wanted coffee but no dessert. Never took another drink order. I think it was just a language barrier but we were paying customers. Need to get it together.

Great neighborhood location for Italian. Have gone several times and have never had a bad experience. They run specials most of the time I think and they are always wonderful. Don't hesitate!

Lovely little restaurant! We dined early so it was not busy and we got incredible service. Outdoor patio is great and the food is wonderful rustic Italian. Generous portions for the price. The host (owner?) and waiter made us feel very welcome from the moment we walked in. Perfect spot for a date and great value.

Made the reservation looking for an inexpensive restaurant. Got there and saw the place was relatively empty. They asked if we wanted to sit on the patio. It was a beautiful area off of the street. Ended up being not only pretty, but quiet. Everyone we came in contact with spoke Italian (positive sign in an Italian restaurant). The restaurant got more crowded as the evening wore on. The food was very good, and made fresh to order.
We were happy!!!

Great local spot if you're in the neighborhood. Not a destination to travel miles for if you're not.
