This was one of the best meals I’ve ever had. Their food was simply amazing. The lasagna is to diet for, their lamp chop and risotto where mouth watering and their wine incredible as well! It was an awesome experience...the wait staff was extremely attentive. They were always near by if we needed anything but never intrusive or rushing us...we were a large party...and all of us got anything we needed in seconds. I would highly recommend!

Amazing! This place hits all the notes. Great food, service, menu, attitude, ambiance... Top 3 for all-time best Italian and overall experience. Go hungry! The portions are rather large - and you’ll want to eat it all - but I bet you can’t!

The food was outstanding. The proprietor Anita was charming and she made the experience even nicer! Service was also outstanding. Once you enter all you can smell is pizza cooking. Smelled wonderful even though we didn’t have pizza. I had Chicken Marsala that was delicious, flavorful, and Boy was their a lot of food. The Pea Risotto was plentiful and the best I have had.

My friend had Pasta and his was quite big and delicious as well.

Wine was moderately priced.

Anita brought me over a shot of Brandy for me and my friend for my birthday which I thought was very classy.

Next time we are in a Miami Beach we will definitely return!

Excellent meal! I only have good things to say. Been at this restaurant many times and have never had a bad meal or experience. The only drawback is the fact it is so good its hard to get a reservation. Make sure you reserve early as the place is always packed.

As always, a wonderful experience. We were celebrating our anniversary with friends from out of town, who had traveled to Italy with us, and one is Italian. They loved the food as we do.

Whether pizza or octopus, salad or salmon, chicken parm or meatballs-all food is fresh, flavorful, and consistent. I have food allergies, and the kitchen never disappoints.

Our server, Alex, is the best! Service is equal to a fine dining experience. The port served at the end of your meal always makes us smile.

You arrive and leave feeling appreciated...and well fed! Portions are more than enough to share.

Thank you!

While in Miami for the night my wife and I looked for a restaurant close to our hotel. The Crust came up and the reviews looked very good.
Made a reservation for 6:39. The restaurant was quiet but was nearly full when we left (be careful...reservation are only for 2 hours...let them know if you need longer)
We both had pasta dishes. Penne Bolognese and Linguini Carbonara. Portions were huge !!! Flavours excellent. Well done and recommended. Would return

This was our 4th visit (we are an hour away-deep south dade) and it is always outstanding. Unfortunately, we missed the owners wife as she was on vacation. I always enjoy her sweet and welcoming spirit. We introduced another group of our friends to your restaurant and wanted them to meet her. I am 2nd generation Italian. We make everything homemade and quite frankly my food is so good that we do not go out much. But the food here is outstanding! I love how hot it is served and it is ALWAYS consistent. I think that is because the owner is the chef. I give it a 10 in quality and value for the price charged. Keep up the good work and thank you for giving me somewhere else to eat that is as wonderful or better than eating at home.
