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.

Was a little confused about why the server asked to see my son's ID when he already got his drink from the bar & was asked for ID there...

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?

Unremarkable birthday brunch. Ordered the avocado toast, crispy bacon, a croissant and pancakes—all were mediocre, at best. The service was poor, but this seems to be a common theme in Miami Beach. Great place to people & luxury car watch! Nice & cool on the patio, despite 80 degree temps.

Really bad experience for us. Ordered drinks and the server completely forgot; had to remind her and then we got them 45 mins after sitting down. Asked her for help determining GF items on the menu, she forgot, came back almost 30 mins later with super limited information. We ordered two apps and closed out. We were celebrating our engagement and the server said she was bringing us something special - she brought us cake with gluten, so we couldn’t eat it.

Service was just rough + very slow. Not recommended for those with allergies.

Good Food, Great Service. A great Italian Experience overall!
Hats off to Alex who was super nice throughout with his amazing recommendations even though we had a lot of dietary restrictions. His hearty service made the food even better.

It could have been charming but the tables on the patio were too packed together and there many loud, obnoxious drunk patrons. The food was average. It’s perhaps a good spot if you’re in a party mood, but not for a relaxed meal with conversation.

Found this restaurant on Open Table. It was fantastic. We had the eggplant zucchini parmigiana,
The lobster ravioli was simply amazing. Every restaurant should take note. The chocolate cake with vanilla
Gelato for dessert.

We waited for the hostess for almost 10 minutes, then a server that kept going by us must have felt bad, and finally sat us. Another group that was behind us, sat themselves down before we were sat and later I noticed that they had their drinks and food WAY BEFORE we got our drinks. After waiting for a server, at the most in-the-way table, someone approached us to take our order, but that server didn't even know whether she should take our order or if the table belonged to another server. Needless to say, we never saw her again. The food came out in parts and they even forgot to put in a side item. Getting salt, butter, syrup, coffee topped off, and frankly anything, was like asking an act of God.
The food was great, the coffee was okay, OJ was freshly squeezed, but oh yeah, did I forget to mention that the service was AWFUL!
