If fairy tales had bars in them you can bet they would be something like Casa Tua. From the moment you pass under the trees that hide this Mediterranean Villa from the frenzy of Miami life, you fall under it's spell. Warm light spills from the doorway and lanterns hang from small trees. A friendly man greets you as if welcoming you home - which is, of course, the point of Casa Tua, "Your House."

Was super expensive, but very good. Pasta was awesome, but $45? My Branzino was fantastic.

THe Veal and Steak Special were just ordinary and too large a serving. The would have been better off if small serving and finerer pieces of meat. Prices were high.

Called in advance to ask for a table outside to celebrate my husband birthday and also our anniversary. They simply forgot the table and the celebration instructions. They also forgot to put more staff people to attend clients orders. Our drinks and food took an eternity to arrive. A restaurant that welcomed us with such a pretentious- overconfident -italian approach can’t make mistakes like this. Please: Less buona sera and more good service!

Gorgeous, romantic place. Expected more from the food. I was told it was ridiculously expensive, and witnessed it was. I think it’s a good one time place to experience, but I would not return. Way too many great food places at a much better value. Was somewhat disappointed .

Casa Tua can do no wrong concerning their food. However, their service was the absolute bare minimum. We’re New Yorkers and accustomed to dining at many high end/trendy restaurants. Additionally, we frequent Miami bi-yearly and are quite aware of the type of service one is afforded at their restaurants. This trip, we were celebrating our 8th anniversary. Despite making a reservation a month in advance, we were seated right next to a curtain which the wait staff constantly walked through. On a typical day, we would not have been disturbed however the wait staff constantly asked my boyfriend to adjust his seating so they would be able to pass. He was able to hear all of their conversations. We are happy to try Casa Tua again, as I previously stated the meal was incredible, however we were extremely disappointed by the service.

Food was excellent. Unfortunately assistant somelier (a slightly pretentious guy) had us taste a wine that was definitely too warm. Said he could understand since bottle had been out for quite a while! Said he would get a cooler bottle from cellar. Came back some 15-20 minutes later and served a wine which was just just as warm as the first one. On the other end, lady that served our meal was very courteous and professionnal.

I had not been to this restaurant in years so it has changed since I was here last. Food was good but honestly very overpriced. Our entree which we shared was $120. The waiter never told us how much the “special” was and although I expected it to be more than the other items on the menu I wa ahockdd when I got the bill.

They charged us for two $9 bottles of still water. We can afford it, so it’s not a big deal, we just weren’t expecting it. Other than that, it was incredible.

Ristorante in location bella e curata, prezzo troppo alto considerato il cibo rispetto ad altri ristoranti Top di Miami. Il tavolo assegnato era piccolo per 4 persone e in zona di passaggio continuo è obbligato di camerieri per servire altri tavoli.

Spectacular inside and out! Courtyard a bit noisy with traffic on 17th street; quieter on James St. side. Food was interesting and delicious. A lot of staff, but not always paying attention to diners' needs. Least favorite part: After dinner, we requested 20-year port. On the menu, it was $18/ea. Captain came to tell us that he was sorry they were out of both 10- and 20-year ports, but did have 30-year. We inquired re: price. He said, "Oh, I should know that! I'll go check for you." Returned with two glasses and a 'complimentary' plate of cookies. We noticed on our check that it was $30/glass. Seemed a bit presumptuous to us...

We went to Casa Tua on Feb 13 to celebrate Valentine’s Day. We sat outside in a very pretty setting. The food was good, table service good. We enjoyed ourselves up to the point where we were leaving. We left the restaurant through the same rooms by which we had been led Into it. There was a private party going on but no one had asked us to leave via a different path. We were taking our time walking through the rooms as we were looking at the beautiful animal photography. Suddenly we were approached by the maître d’ and abruptly and, in my opinion, rudely asked to hurry up as there was a private party going on. When I complained to the maître d’ that his manner of asking/telling was rude, he did apologize. I suppose he was being pressured by the private party. I went to the washroom before leaving the restaurant and as I left, the maître d’ apologized again. I told him that it was up to the restaurant to ensure that the private party space remained private, not up to individual guests to know where to walk.

I had heard about Casa Tua for so long and was excited to go for the first time to celebrate VD. It is a beautiful spot and it could have been a lovely evening but it was ruined by the way we were made to feel unwelcome and unvalued as customers. Although the maître d’ apologized, the evening was ruined for me and left a very bad taste in my mouth.

Going to a nice restaurant is all about the experience and how it makes you feel. Casa Tua did not make me feel special or appreciated and in this, they fell very far short.

We come to the miami area every 2 years or so and never miss a chance to have dinner at Casa Tua. It is always a delight, and it didn’t disappoint on 2/10/19. I would recommend it to anyone celebrating a special occasion or looking for a romantic evening.

I have eaten at Casa Tua many times and love the atmosphere and the outstanding food. We were there to celebrate a friend's birthday and excited to share the experience as they had never been there before. It was a beautiful night....our food was delicious ( can't go wrong with any of the homemade pastas) ....and unfortunately our server took away from that "feel good" experience as he was surly and seemed put out when we asked questions about particular dishes. It wasn't always clear whether or not he just didn't want to answer our questions or perhaps there was a communication issue due to a language barrier. We all felt the same which created a "bad taste" feeling when we left.
As much as I love this restaurant I will think twice about returning.

Continues to be a favorite spot on SoBe. Once inside the garden gate, you are transported to another place and time. Elegant - the room, the service, the food. Love that lunch is now an option on Thursday- Sunday. Well curated lunch menu makes it perfect for a late, romantic lunch.
