We love Crust. It's our third time there (we do not live in Miami), and we have always enjoyed it. I had the salmon with risotto; it was one of the best salmon preparations I have ever had, if not the absolute best. It melted in my mouth. We loved the fried shrimp cake appetizer. I can't wait to return the next time we visit Miami.

First time at this restaurent, we had seen other reviews and decided to try it on a Friday early evening. We made reservation for 5:30 arrived right on time. Took advantage of the Valet Parking Great Value ($6.00 Before tip...) Lots of people there when we arrived and the place was packed by the time we left at 7:15. The food was GREAT!!!! Large portions and tasted amazing. Definately wil be going back. I had the chicken Parm and wife had the Chicken Picata. Lots of left over for the next day......

Crust had the highest rating on Trip Advisor so we decided to check it out. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent, (large portions), and the chef's wife, who seated us, was very friendly and helpful. If I lived in Miami I would be a frequent diner.

This is probably my 40th time at Crust. Each time is as good as the last. Consistency is its hallmark. The service is impeccable and the food is plentiful and delicious. Order the barbecue chicken pizza. It has a flavor like no other. The Crust salad is the perfect complement to it. Anita is the most gracious hostess and will warmly welcome you whether it is your first time or you are a regular customer. Everyone is a friend and you will leave a fan.

You will never be disappointed eating at Crust. From the time you walk into the restaurant to the time you leave, you will be treated like royalty. The food is so good, the service is on point, the prices are reasonable and the limoncello cake is amazing. Be sure to make a reservation, because they do get very busy.

The food was amazing. They welcomed me and my guests with open arms. They knew who I was and that we were celebrating my birthday. It was amazing service from the moment you walk in the door. The food though....... exquisite!!!! So many options for me (I’m gluten free) and everyone LOVED their choices. Portions are definitely meant for sharing though!! I will 100% be back again!

What an incredible find! My wife and I were looking to get a bite to eat before going to the Marlins game and we read good things about CRUST so we decided to try it out. Don't believe a single bad review (how could there be!?) because this place was amazing. We were greeted at the door by their friendly staff, the owner personally sat us at our table, and our server was great during our meal. He was very attentive but not over bearing. The pizza was delicious and looking around at what other people had on their plates, it looked like the portion sizes were extremely generous. I strongly recommend starting out with the garlic rolls. Not a crumb was left! If you're looking for a nice little Italian place whether it's for a pregame meal or a nice place to take your family, I would recommend CRUST 10/10.

My wife and I love pizza and have tried various restaurants in Miami including stanzone 87, and la buffala which are both incredible for pizza. We arrived at Crust which is located right next to the river in brickell, great location. The hostess and the owner both greeted us very kindly at the entrance and promptly seated my wife and I. The entire menu looked great and was very reasonably priced, but we came for the pizza. I ordered the small meatball pizza and my wife got the small 3 cheese and added shrimp as a topping. Both pizzas were brought to our table within 15 minutes which was great because we were both very hungry. The pizzas are not large but they are loaded with ingredients but not in a bad way. The pizzas were incredible! Ingredients were fresh, crust was baked perfectly and the ricotta cheese on my pizza had a very nice sweet taste to it which complemented the red tomato sauce very well. My wife’s pizza was equally as good although I did prefer my pizza a little more. To finish it off we had the zeppolis with Nutella which I couldn’t stop eating! We ended up bringing a lot of pizza back home I kid you not 3 slices of my pizza were extremely filling and you get 6 slices per pizza. Overall I was extremely impressed with Crust. From their quality of food to their incredible attention to customer service which is RARE now a days especially in Brickell you understand that this place is a hidden GEM! Congratulations to both owners I see your passion greatly reflects in your work and I wish you many many years of success. I will be back !

Crust ALWAYS is exceptional in every way from the moment you enter the door! So good that if the categories above went up to 10 stars they would earn all of those too! Hands down Crust has become my family, and friends favorite restaurant, and this past Sunday was no exception! Seven out of the 11 guests we invited who had never been to Crust were blown away by the food, service, and overall dining experience. All it takes is one visit! Thanks Crust once more for making our special occasions so much more! You guys are truly my culinary rock stars!
