I consider this a real find in downtown Miami. Intimate, excellent service, delicious fresh Italian offerings, and for downtown Miami, excellent value. A perfect spot for pre-concert or theater or even a quiet business dinner where you can really have a conversation.

It was Thanksgiving and 3 out of 4 ordered food from their usual menu and all was very good. Mine was their thanksgiving menu which was fair, not excellent...but the price was good. The service was extremely slow and we had to ask for what should have come without asking. I will try them again as I think they can prove differently in service. Let’s hope!

As usual Fratelli Milano does not disappoint!
We ordered the calamari for appetizer, chicken ravioli and a mushroom pasta for entree, and a chocolate chip cookie for dessert.

The calamari was definitely our favorite! It came with a red sauce to dip which we used for the bread they gave us as well. The sauce was amazing we truly loved it. I ordered the chicken ravioli in a pink sauce and it was amazing as well. The stuffing of the ravioli had shredded chicken and cheese and it complimented the sauce. My wife had the mushroom pasta and it was extremely flavorful, she really enjoyed it. We originally wanted to get the profiterole, but they were all out so we decided to go with the cookie and took it to go. We ate it the next morning with some coffee and it was good.

I would definitely recommend to friends it does not disappoint!

Overall a great experience, review from Yelp brought me here and they were spot on. Great food and service. The only negative was the Sangria, it was watered down and it was very noticeable. Food and service were excellent otherwise.

Perfecto! A real discovery in Downtown Miami. Parking can be a challenge, and stay aware of your surroundings as in any American big-city downtown, but this wonderful Italian-via-Argentina gem is worth every bite. Leo and team took good care of us and even the manager helped make my wife’s birthday memorable.

Excellent Italian cuisine. A surprising mix of traditional with a hint of contemporary. The marinara sauce was made fresh, nicely seasoned, and a little sweet just how I like it. I'll definitely visit again when I return to Miami.

Yesterday, I called to make a reservation for lunch. The person I talked to on the phone gladly accommodated me, but also explained I might have to wait a few minutes because they are very busy at lunch time. They were, but didn’t have to wait too long before we were seated.
Everything we tried was DELICIOUS. Authentic Italian food cooked to perfection.
The service was impeccable. Servers were attentive. Food came out fast. This restaurant is a gem.
...So much so that we returned tonight for dinner. Again, excellent food, great service.

Good dining experience for the most part. Was hard to find being that there’s no sign on the door and construction going on. Meal started off nice, they had a drink special on red wine sangria which was good, not amazing but pretty standard. The calamari was good, sauce was a bit bland but calamari was cooked well. I had the lobster ravioli which was great, again nothing super special. The creme brûlée that we had left much to be desired, it seems like they added gelatin to the mix and too much sugar on top which left it chewy instead of crunchy. All in all it was good, not great but pretty standard Italian.

I loved my dessert - they said it was a special but it was so delicious with a lite lemon flavor and I think it would make a great addition to their menu. It tasted like the lemon tortes I ate when I was vacationing in the Amalfi Coast.
