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."

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.

Wonderful restaurant and have previously dined. Food and service was excellent.

Only downside is the smoking in the outside dining garden . One of the guests At the next table lit up a cigar as we started eating diner and we asked to move.

Florida should join other states and leaving the smoking out of restaurants

The food was great and the table beautiful. Our server was great as well. Unfortunately, we were asked to leave our table early before receiving our post-dinner coffee drinks to accommodate another group. Considering the money we spent and the fact that we were seated a little late and had not overstayed our welcome by any stretch, something confirmed with our waiter, this bizarre and frankly rude request unfortunately ruined our otherwise lovely dinner.

Posto famoso, frequentato in passato da Obama o Jennifer Lopez. Piatti italiani ottimi. Un pò rumoroso per i, forse, troppi tavoli. Mangiare fuori in giardinetto è d'atmosfera, ma la strada antistante è un pò trafficata e rumorosa, soprattutto se c'è un qualche concerto od evento nella vicina piazza antistante un piccolo museo d'arte.

This was a perfect and romantic lunch spot that we picked for our anniversary- from the rose petals on the table to the complimentary and oustanding Tira Misu every detail was attended to. It's recently opened for lunch so there were very few other diners. We chose to sit outside in the beautiful courtyard and felt like we were in a tropical oasis in Miami. The food was delicious and fresh. Loved, loved , loved this place.

We have been there a few times in our travels to Miami and they have always been accommodating in the past. However, we requested an outdoor table this time and when we got to the restaurant was told that they could not accommodate us due to member requests. There were tables available and unseated in the garden throughout our time there. That was very disheartening and we will not go back.

Very disappointing, overrated and expensive. I don’t mind expensive if it’s worth it but this definitely was not worth it as far as food and service. Service was not personalized but very get them in, get them out. No warmth. We were there to celebrate my birthday and it was a big one. My husband spoke to the restaurant that morning to confirm the reservation and was told that they could put rose petals on the table to make it more special. We were seated at a regular table inside next to a lot of people no rose petals. The table next to us was empty with rose petals and my husband said I requested that for you they put us at the wrong table let’s move over. As soon as we did the hostess cane running over telling us to move that the table was reserved for club members and to move. She was rude about it. We got up and my husband went to speak to another hostess. After a lot of discussion we went back to the table with the rose petals so it didn’t start off nicely. Portions were small and very overpriced for what it was. I ordered pasta with clams very few clams $43. My husband’s pasta with mushrooms was tasty but again overpriced. My husband had ordered the tiramisu as a surprise and waiter came out wished us happy anniversary and the tiramisu said happy anniversary. When I stated it was not our anniversary but my birthday he was like oh ok happy birthday snd walked away. No apologies. I was looking foward to something special and memorable to commerate my birthday but this missed the mark. I would not recommend or go back.

This is a wonderful restaurant for classic Italian fare. Service is impeccable, wine list varied (old world), and the outside tables offer the opportunity for an intimate dining experience.

Plus, it’s a very easy walk from Casa Tua to the Fillmore, New World Symphony and Convention Center.

The ambience and the food weee really nice, but We had a really bad experience when the check arrived. First, they charged us 10 big bottles of water, and we were sure we didn’t drink so much - (1 per person!) . Ok, They took off from the check.
After we realized that every plate in the account was 2 dollar more than in the menu! Not because of the amount, but is incredible something like that. The manager told us that they have increased prices but still not changed the menu. It was an absurd!! Perhaps they make that everyday, with everybody?

El lugar realmente muy lindo y muy bien ubicado. Es una casa con un patio con luminarias, la entrada es escondida y por fuera no se ve que es un restaurant. Un jardín escondido.

La comida deliciosa, el mejor pollo que he comido en mi vida!

Recomendable!
Era caro, sin embargo, lo vale.
