We arrived before dinner service so we had drinks at the bar. The service and drinks were excellent. We were seated outside on the upper level at a great table. The weather was perfect. We split the fritto misto app, which was perfectly cooked and had a wonderful arrabbiata sauce. For our main course we had, TORTELLI AL TARTUFO - ricotta & spinach, montasio, leeks, preserved black truffles, and CAVATELLI ALLA BOLOGNESE -braised beef, veal, pork ragu. Both of these dishes were outstanding. The portions were generous and rich. Our server was friendly and responsive. He decanted our wine and paid attention to our wine glasses throughout dinner. The only downer for me was the added 18% tip, which I thought for a party of two was a bit tacky. We normally leave a 20% tip for good service and I would have left even more for this experience. I asked the server about this and he said it was corporate policy.

Overall the food was quite nice but I would not recommend because of the rushed service. The essence of the Italian meal is a slow social occasion. 3 of our 4 main courses arrived while we were still eating our appetisers. There was no acknowledgement or embarrassment from the servers. We felt rushed and had unwelcome and by the time we did start our pasta it was of course not as hot as intended.

First they did not have our reservation down on their books. But, I presented a confirmation and they then found us a table. This was my first time using open table, and showed up with no reservation showing. Then was not pleasant, but we finely made it work out for us.

We celebrated our anniversary and received very special attention. Our only criticism is that a round table would have been better for our party of 7. Otherwise a perfect evening with great food and service.

My mom and I happened to be staying at the Gale and ate here on a girls' weekend trip. It is excellent food, service and atmosphere. My mom is gluten free and vegetarian, and it was no problem for her to order. They are very accommodating. We will definitely be coming here the next time we are in Miami. *The meatballs are divine!

Ambiance and service was impecable. The one thing I do have to say is not kid friendly in terms of not having any cheaper options for him. I asked for a kid speghetti with meatballs and they charged us a full price 28.00!! Yes, maybe I shouldn't have brought my kid, but he sure was not going to finish a 28.00 adult portion.

Great food and ambiance. Very authentic Italian food. Both chef and our waiter were straight from Italy. Portion sizes were generous and prices were fair for the location of the restaurant.
Dim lighting and busy atmosphere. Only real downside was the place was really noisy. Despite that, had a great experience and would gladly return and recommend the restaurant.

Once we got passed the hostess trying to seat us at the only bad table in the house (right at the top of the stairs with zero light and in a very high traffic area) we had a spectacular evening. Amazing service by Carmine from Naples (the one in Italy). Great wine list with reasonably priced bottles as well as cellar worthy options. Out of this world caprese with warm house-made mozzarella and heirloom tomatoes. Amazing house-made pasta and decadent deserts. Gratuity was included as it is with many Miami Beach restaurants but we were happy to add extra for superb service which is rare in these circumstances. Wish we were in town longer so we could try a few more dishes.
