Food was ok.
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.
Chicken parm was delicious and a generous amount of food. We had a party of 8 people, and every person was very happy with their meal. The server was excellent and attentive. We sat outside and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I would definitely recommend it!
Rainy windy night so staff moved some other diners so our party of 12 could sit inside. They comped the other diners dessert. Classy move by staff.
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.
Beautiful night in south beach ! Great service and food. Very nice ambiance and vibe.
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.
Worst service I had in a long time, don’t be fooled by the food pictures on the website or google results
Buena ubicación , la comida buena sin ser espectacular , buen servicio
Excellent Italian dining, we come here every time we’re in town.
The fact that you have to pay $9 for water is a little absurd compared to its outdoor seating.
Rafael was amazing, he was our sever and bartender, we highly recommend him to be your se ever, the food was really good.
Wonderful food. We ordered two specials which were overpriced compared to the rest of the menu but they were delicious.
Food and service was great!
What a fantastic dinner! Our server Iris was great! She was super attentive, friendly, gladly took photos of us, alerted us to happy hour deal. Food was amazing (their truffle mushroom ravioli was to die for!)
Not bad. Not great.
Food was good but I felt the service was rushing us maybe this is now Americans like it.
Stated I had a food allergy and they served me what I was allergic to. To make it “better” we were given free shots. Sorry- shots are the last thing you want when you have to make a trip to the ER
I think by Miami Beach standards it is pretty goood, by San Francisco standards it is average. The primo ravioli was good, the fish was floating in a sauce - weak.
Waiter was excellent, food was excellent, view was excellent.
Great service. Excellent pizza. Fun people watching.
Dinner was excellent. Service great. Our waiter Carlos was excellent and so accommodating. We will return again.
Great outdoor setting for dinner
Great outdoor spot, super large portions at reasonable prices
My wife loved the gnocchi!
Pasta was amazing and great service. The prices were not not too bad
Great for breakfast, lunch and dinner
Great food and great value
We ate there 4 times in 5 days. Twice for dinner and twice for lunch. Loved sitting outdoors and enjoying the sunshine and people watching. The homemade pasta and and wine list kept us coming back. Their Caesar and Cobb salads were outstanding. Thomas was very personable and gave us great service. We will be back the next time we are in Miami Beach.
Great breakfast spot and even better for dinner.
Our favorite Italian in South Beach and possibly the best pasta in the US.
Excellent service from beginning to end. Waiter went out of his way a couple times for our special requests. Seafood was fresh, and ample serving sizes...
The food and service were great, however we made the mistake of going New Years Eve for dinner and with the limited menu selections they didn’t have gluten free pasta. But the meal I had, my waiter made sure it was gluten free and it was fabulous!!
