Defiantly enjoyed our first visit and look forward to going back.

Food was very good and wine list was excellent. Most expensive bottle was $79 dollars, which is rare for a Miami restaurant.

Service was good, could be a touch better.

Overall, very good experience. Looking forward to going back.

The food and service were awesome! Our daughter is a student at UM and we wanted a small, quiet and healthy meal. This place was awesome! From start to finish it was great.

We were excited to find this authentic Italian restaurant while visiting for the weekend. Having just been to Italy recently, we were pleased to find many traditional items on the menu as well as a selection of seafood dishes and Italian wines. The wine was reasonably priced, from various regions in Italy. The bruschetta was delicious and tasted fresh and homemade. My boyfriend ordered the lasagna which he enjoyed and I ordered the lobster ravioli in vodka sauce which was the best ravioli I’ve ever had. The ambiance was nice with candlelit tables and very friendly, helpful staff as well as the owner who checked on us during our meal. We sat outside which was a little noisy at times with the street traffic but we didn’t mind and could’ve eaten inside. I would recommend to family and friends in the future.

We visit fratelli milano every time we fly to Miami. The food never disappoints. I had chicken farcito which is stuffed with spinach ricotta and pine nuts. Delicious. Veggies were fresh. Amazing chocolate soufflé for dessert although their tiramisu is one of the best I’ve ever had. This is authentic and delicious. Look forward to our next cruise out of Miami just so we can visit Fratelli Milano again. Waiter was attentive and efficient.

 (Miami)·Dined on December 16, 2017

Arrived 10:30 after a show. Staff was very friendly and we
chose to sit outside on the sidewalk.

Risotto Frutti di Mare was a major disappointment since
it was a large bowl of long grain rice with some seafood.
If you advertise risotto, at least use Aroborio or another
rice for risotto or you immediately discredit yourself
as authentic Italian.

Lobster ravioli tasty, heavy cream sauce.

Appetizer, fried calamari and zucchini fair.

We had to send the wine back...lousy, but they gladly
replaced.

Ambience on a downtown sidewalk late at night less than ideal. Lots of homeless looking for food and other less than desirables hanging around. (City should rectify).

In a sea of Italian restaurants to choose from in a 5 mile radius, there are far better at similar price points.

Maybe a better place for lunch.

Food was great, especially the hand-made pasta.
Problem is the mosquito in the restaurant. My friend and I got multiple mosquito bites on our feet. This is quite annoying during dining. We would have prepared insect repellents before going in...

What a wonderful first impression and experience! David the manager treated myself and girlfriend like family! The hand made pastas each day are to die for! You also have to try the desserts which also are made from scratch each day in the restaurant. This is a local gem that is priced great for the size of the dishes and the excellent hospitality. I am a local Concierge and am so lucky to have a casual hot spot like this so close to my hotel. All around great experience and recommended for everyone to try!

Each time we visit Miami we make time to go to this great Italian restaurant. We eat out a lot and really appreciate great food, great service and the warm welcome. We have tried most things on the menu and you can't go wrong with any of the pasta and veal dishes . The margarita pizza is delicious.
