From the moment Anita greets you at the door and until she serves a complimentary glass of port at the end of your dining extravaganza, everything is perfection plus.

A small, but lively place with delicious food and more-than-generous serving sizes! The quality of the food was top-notch, the taste was sublime, the amount was filling, and the atmosphere alluring/lively! The hostess was friendly and welcoming; with a big smile and accommodating attitude. It was obvious she was experienced in this type of work. Although the parking might be a slight hassle, the valet service is convenient enough to curtail any discomfort. Highly recommend it as a date spot or meetup with friends/family. Perhaps the most surprising aspect of the entire night is the price! I honestly felt like the quality of the food warrants a higher price! Will definitely visit again!

This was probably our 5th or 6th dinner within the last year. Each visit has been outstanding from greeting to leaving with excellent food in between. We have had Appetizers, Salads, Soups and many main courses. The food is excellent, the presentation very good and the portions over the top.

I sincerely recommend this place to lovers of Italian. The prices are most reasonable.

Dinner before the theater. Great food and service. We started with the Crust salad. I had the seafood risotto and my wife had the shrimp risotto. Both dishes were great and I think its a great value.

As mentioned in other reviews, the welcome you will receive at this restaurant is above any other. The owner is there to personally greet you and then offer a complimentary glass of port at the end of the meal. Lovely touches. The chicken and prawn fettucine is a great pasta dish. The seafood risotto has good taste, plenty of seafood, but is more "runny" than I prefer. The lemon marscapone cake is light and delicious. Portions in general are huge; could easily share or skip the appetizer or just take some home for later.

My girlfriend and I went on Valentine's Day, for it being on a Wednesday night, it was very busy inside the restaurant. Server was attentive and suggested a few items on the menu as it was our first time at this establishment. Overall, the food was excellent, service was what I expected on Valentine's Day, and parking is a bit of an issue so we opted for valet instead.

A favorite restaurant. I would eat there once a week if I could afford the calories. Great food
at a fair price with friendly excellent service.
My only criticism was with the valet. I gave the attendant $10 for the $6 charge. He didn't
tender me back the $4 requiring me to ask for my change. I of course was planning on tipping
him and did so in spite of him clearly intending to not give my change.

We went to Crust for our valentine dinner. Our table was ready as soon as we got there. Our waiter Beau was excellent. He answered all our questions with a smile and a great attitude (I am allergic to eggs). The 3 course menu was convenient and the price of the house wine bottles was also a great deal. The food had good flavor, however my beef risotto was undercooked which left the rice crunchy. My husband also felt the fried calamari and the chicken Parm were not so fresh but rather frozen and re-heated. The portions were great sizes with plenty left over for the next day. Overall, we had a great time, just wish the food would have been a little bit more up to par with the prices.

I ordered chicken parmigiana and I received eggplant. Not ever had eaten eggplant parmigiana before I thought it was just bad mushy chicken. After the waiter and I figured out I had the wrong dish they did bring me a chicken parmigiana for which I ate a couple of bites. I honestly have to say the chicken parmigiana wasn't very good either. I had it wrapped and took it to go. The owner was very apologetic and gave us one slice of cake to split between us. Two probably would have been better for two people, but I guess she figured one was enough. All this being said the service was good, ambiance was ok but I would not recommend this place to anyone.

We have been to Crust several times and have been very pleased with our food every time. This time we had the Lasagne and the Gnocchi. Both were exceptional and were large servings. The deserts were amazing also. The owners are always there and interact with the customers and monitor staff. This is one of our Miami favorites.

WELCOMING and DELICOUS. from creative pizza combos to make up your own, pizzas are delivered hot and smell amazing. only thing better is how they taste. for a table of 6, the pizza was a great starter along with the calamari- fresh and served with everything you need when delivered. and don't forget amazing salads. loved the arugula. simple and perfect. the main courses are huge and have incredible sides like the best risotto ever! you cant go wrong with any of the parmesan dishes and you can even substitute a veggie if you prefer (but find a way to try the risotto). keep in mind, even sides of veggies are huge. the place has something for everyone. and everything is picture taking worthy! our server alex was super attentive, sweet and helpful. and anita, the owner is truly a delight. certainly great service and great food are reasons you will return...and bring others and tell others. this place is a true gem! (ps if you have room....and even if you don't, ask about the Nutella desert...amazing!)
