    The ambience was beautiful, they’re just having some construction work outside so that kind of painted it a little bit. But that is some thing out of their control. Waitress we had was a little bit difficult to understand and the difficulty communicating with us. Also, the drinks we got were a size small but we got charged for the big size. We didn’t bring it to the waitresses attention because we had to leave, which another thing the waitress had difficulty recognizing.

    It may have been a bad night, but the service was fair to average at best along with the food. Greek Salad was good but pasta was fair and it came out cold. Outdoor setting and location are great, so if the service and food matched, they could do really well.

    The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Food choices seemed odd and inconsistent. Breakfast was typically and dinner was over cooked across the board. Paella was very oily and lobster was rubbery. Meat was also over cooked and leftovers had to be thrown away. Ambiance was very comfortable and a great people watching location. Most importantly. Great personable staff. Just tweak menu and quality of food and it would be awesome.

    Nice restaurant, waiter was great. good food although was more Latin than Italian(which was what we were looking for). The online menu was a little different than actual. The atmosphere was great for adults/couples. The price is what is expected for location.

    Patio was perfect as a downpour came through and we were totally covered. It’s fairly small but wasn’t too crowded for 8pm on a Friday (which is what we prefer). Our server was very nice and helpful. We probably didn’t have to make a reservation but we did anyways. Not super upscale but has a wide variety of foods and our pastas were very good.

    Great location..above average food. Went for dinner. Usually go for their breakfast which is outstading. The mixed drinks were large and tasty. The dinner menu was kind of limited, I remember more variety pre-covid. The Mahi Mahi was tasty, Being on Ocean Drive, sitting outside was great for people watching. ..The menu was fairly priced (for Ocean Drive). Next trip we will probably go there again...at least for the breakfast.

    This is a rather charming spot along the boardwalk at South Beach, in Miami. The Mediterranean spices were flavorful in our bouillabaisse of shrimp, clams, mussels, and calamari,, and the yellow rice added a Cuban/Spanish twist to the dish, and was a perfect complement to it. Both the texture taste were delicious!

    Great place for relaxed evening Overlooks the park. Food is amazing! If you like cheese try the gnocchi. Pasta dishes are to die for. Breakfast is really good too. The service is outstanding. They let you sit until you ask for the check, like European restaurants. Not a place to be in a hurry.

    Champagne was not very cold, it took the waiter too long to bring ice, till they took the bucket/bottle inside to fill with ice. Worst calamari I ever had ! My steak was warm, not hot ! ....and then they charged a "service charge" claiming it was not the tip !! The waitress became an instant lawyer trying to explain and justify the $29 service charge !! Not going back there again !! DO NOT RECOMMEND IT !!

    Had an early dinner on a layover. We had dined here 5 years ago and enjoyed it so much we made time to go back. The gnocchi did not disappoint! As good as I remembered. My husband had the filet and mushroom truffle risotto which was also excellent. Our server Andy was attentive and pleasant. We will go back if in the area again.

    They charge you a 15-20% "service fee" which is NOT including the tip. Wish I had known this BEFORE booking a reservation. Food isn't worth it... average food. Rush you out as soon as they see you finished eating. Do not go here.
