They took too many reservations for the same time slot and beyond. They couldn’t accommodate that many people. They didn’t even have enough chairs. Service was awful. Staff inattentive.

Had an 8 person reservation. Waited for about 30-45 min past our reservation time with little to no interaction with a hostess other than “we’ll be right with you”. After getting their attention we were asked if we could split our table up between 4 inside and 4 outside. Makes total sense right? Obviously this wasn’t acceptable and we told them we were going to leave to which they responded “OK”. Clearly they did not care and clearly reservations held no priority. For what it’s worth the food looked good but it’s Miami and good food is everywhere. Would not recommend.

No hostess. Had to flag people down about my 8pm reservation. Was finally seated at 840pm. No server. I had to go inside and ask for one.

True Italian experience, and I am Italian born and raised in Italy. So I know what I am talking about. Absolutely recommended. The reservation management is a little chaotic, so go there a little earlier so you have time to find your table.

The food was excellent, but the wait for our waiter’s attention and each course was protested. All in all we spent 2.5 hours there, 50% in waiting mode.

The restaurant used to be much better. It’s quality has gone down tremendously. Maybe it’s Covid but miami has reopened for restaurants so there is no reason for this quality drop. So many more pizza offerings in miami.

Best Neapolitan pizza you will have in your life! I absolutely love this place and the waiters are from Italy so a little difficult to communicate sometimes but they are very nice and accommodating. Will be coming back! :)

The service was good but the food just wasn’t very good at all.. my seafood dish came extremely over cooked all my seafood was all very very chewy. Just wasn’t for me! Some could possibly enjoy this way more than me!

The food was delicious and the service was friendly. There is the option to sit inside or eat outside. The fettuccine is homemade. You can watch the person making your pizza which is fun for the kids. We also ordered the salmon and it too was delicious. The portion size isn’t huge but worth it!

The service seemed a bit disorganized at first, but that may well have been a momentary glitch. We didn’t have any real problems, and the quality of the food was more than enough to compensate for a moment’s confusion. The ambience of authenticity was also a welcome change from the norm in Miami Beach. I would definitely go back.

Non è quello che un Italiano cerca. Servizio freddo e scortese, qualità nella media, prezzi alle stelle, fanno pagare anche un cucchiaio di salsa in più sulla pizza e noi italiani le guardiamo queste cose. Non ritornerei

Cameriere di assoluta accoglienza scortese e menefreghista ( quello con i capelli a zero ) , altro cameriere si è dimenticato l’ordine della bevanda . Meglio che il management cambi subito camerieri .Cibo buono ma servizio da dimenticare. Prezzi fuori di ogni logica per essere seduti su un marciapiede .
Okay siete a Miami beach e clienti vi pioveranno sempre ma da parte mia sconsiglierò tutti quelli che posso as andare in questo posto . Ci sono molti altri bei locali a Miami o a Miami Beach .
Triste sapere qua italiani del genere .

Good oven fired pizza We also ordered carpaccio which was very good. Usually a place w great ambiance however we were the only one there due to COVID-19 pandemic. Reataurant is usually filled w Europeans and bustling. It’s a terrific Friday night place to go and have a good meal after a long week of work and then stroll over to Stubborn Seed down the street and have a craft cocktail... in our case an Old Fashion. I recommend!

We eat here every year when we visit South Beach and this year Fratelli had really slipped from years past. Their signature buffalo mozzarella was not on the menu. We ordered sparkling water and received still, the lasagna was tasteless and dry and the pizza was unremarkable. The Caesar salad wasn’t even dressed properly,just some dressing drizzled
Over it.
Their staff is very jolly as usual but the overall quality is gone. They need a facelift if they want to compete with other decent places in the area.

Absolutely terrible. Was highly recommended by our Miami friends. Service was the worst outside of Italy. One word of advice, do not go if regulars are there. Had to ask to order, waited 20 minutes with meno down. The tables around us had 3 servers always asking if all was okay, not one came to us. Terrible. The italian manager should pay extra attention to ordinary customers that decide to dine at his restaurant. You just don’t know who can walk into your restaurant. Remember all money is the same and our money wasn’t any different from the locals that were there tonight. Typical italian attitude, sorry to say.

Whenever we're in Miami we always eat at Fratelli La Bufala. Truly authentic Italian cuisine. As good as the Fratelli in Milano.

Service was not on par with prior visits. Server’s communication skills not very good, he took away 1 bread plate then brought bread to the table...I had to take a bread plate from another table to eat the bread. Also, calzone filling was cold in the middle, this never happened before. Sadly, I feel the service and enjoyment that I had experienced here since 2011 has been decreasing for the last several years. I hope they get better quality staff and return to the amazing service and food that we all keep going back for.
