Hostess was kind of weird checking in outside. Service was good inside. Food wasn’t as good as it used to be. It was OK. It’s still pretty inside.

Excellent. Overall it’s a hit. It has great ambiance and energy. We ate indoor and had great service.
The only negative was the Mango Bellini which my wife did not like. They swapped it.

Good fair price menu for the setting.

Friendly excellent service staff

Went to this well respected place on Collins when at a meeting last week with wife and employees. It was recommended by the concierge at the Ritz Carlton. Excellent food and waiter was awesome and real pro. Everything everyone had was awesome and would go back in heartbeat. I had one of the best lobster pasta dishes ever and it was a special that night. The dessert menu could use a little perking up but they were still quite good. Solid recommendation for foodies.

It was a romantic and fancy dinner. We sat in the back so the lights were dimmed. Service was great and so was the food. Highly recommend if you’re looking to eat in style.

Decent Italian food, though the menu was smaller than expected. The waiter was excellent and we were able to find a great wine. We sat outside, so there was a lot of street noise given it's on the main drag...I'd recommend sitting inside if you want it quieter; but the people-watching is South Beach is so much fun.

Food was alright, portions were extremely small for price. Extremely loud and inappropriate groups of people dining. Drunk and yelling / screaming causing disturbance with no intervention by staff.

This was spare of moment decision to go to this place and I couldn’t have been happier. Verdict was wonderful, food was really good and fresh, the ambiance was really nice as well. It was a bit loud but it was because there was a larger party in the back being loud, nothing the staff could do.

It was very loud. We had to yell at each other to hear one another. We ordered food and they brought our children’s meals out and after an hour we still had not received our adult meals. We asked for the check and they charged us 170.00 for 3 kids bowls of noodles. It was awful.

Not unhappy just that you can do so much better than this. Our food arrived cold - waitstaff was disinterested and seemed asleep. Granted, this was at noon on a Saturday in Miami Beach but why should we bother if they don't?
