We loved everything food was excellent service impeccable!
Four of us dined at Il Bolognese about a week ago. We also had with us my son's 7 month old in a stroller. They couldn't have been nicer about accommodating the little one. We flew in to Miami that evening and our flight made us late for our reservation. A quick call to the restaurant confirmed that there was no problem due to the late arrival. The atmosphere on the porch was lovely. Groups included all adults, adults with young children, and as we were leaving, a large table of young women was being seated. Bread, oil & vinegar were served. I had the chicken parmesan and it was wonderful. The pasta accompanying the dish was a bit heavily doused in their red sauce, but the flavor was good. I would not hesitate to eat here again.
Lasagna was great!
Very good food!
Great meal. Super service.
Carlo our server was amazing! I wish we could take him everywhere we dine out.
This place is located in the lobby and porch of a hotel. It's a vibrant place with lots of traffic going in and out of the hotel. The menu is eclectic There was a bit too much sauce in the Salmon Capaccio, which included an odd addition of orange chunks. The Greek salad was dressed just right. The crust on the pizza is a cross between thick and thin.
Lobster was fabulous. They actually know how to serve vegetables-- just a little crisp, lightly spiced and still warm! Nice wine by glass available
Overall top notch.
Todo muy lindo
Service was outstanding. Nestor took great care of us throughout the meal.
Terrible place and food. Cuban not Italian.
Very good pasta dish at dinner and excellent service. Breakfast was great, with many options. Happy hour on the patio was fun.
I can’t believe this place was recommended by anyone. Really bad food, the service is really a disaster and is really expensive for the offered quality. Bad experience!
Food was excellent, the wait staff and manager were wonderful made us feel like we were their only customer!!! Wonderful atmosphere and exceptional service!!!
Excellent food, service, and ambiance!
Enjoyed the quiet ambiance of the restaurant and service was very good. The dinner entrees however were only fair. The lobster tortellini first came out cold, and the light tomato cream sauce was not light but heavy in crushed tomato. The lobster in the surf and turf was over cooked.
Very good service, location and food! Would definitely go back again.
Great meal exceptional service from Noberto
Fantastic location right on Ocean drive with large spacious dining area. The grilled lobster was fantastic; try it! Also had the calamari, caesar salad and the salmon, all which were good indeed.
Casual mediterranean ambiance with great italian food.
Server looked like they didn't know how to multi-task, wasn't wearing a name tag but had a european maybe russian accent ? she was a brunette - Server would bring 1 thing out at a time rather than several. Table besides us (4 top) got their food at the same time we got ours and we were there (also a table of 4) 25 minutes prior. They did mention the kitchen was behind but they didn't say anything about the servers. I understand it was a busy lunch but she was just not attentive to any of her tables. It seemed like it didn't matter since dining down there gets them an auto grat therefore they don't "have" to give good service. The food was incredibly bland, it took 15 minutes to get the worst bloody marys we had ever had. We tried to doctor them at the table by adding pepper, hot sauce, worcestershire sauce but they were just cheap tomato juice and no saving them. We tried to drink them and when she asked if they were ok, we were unsure, but when we asked to changed, she had the audacity to say "i asked you if they were ok" - completely uncalled for. If anything we were trying to give her less work - We all settled for Stellas instead and thankfully they took those drinks away. The food arrived and it was ok, appearance was better, but the taste was very bland, ask another server to please bring some parm cheese and they must have forgotten, we had to ask twice. Food just wasn't worth it. When it came to pay, we told the server to split it by dish, apparently that was to be mentioned at the beginning of the meal. Just wasn't very accommodating especially considering the lack of taking care. I would watch her run into the kitchen and come out with 1 drink, then she would go back and come back with 1 spoon. It was mind baffling, the hostess hardly helped, just standing their taking selfies and videos of the parade rather than keeping an eye on the tables and assisting the servers. Two words to describe this dining experience "hot mess". Would not recommend AT ALL.
Best breakfast I've ever had! Will definitely be going back before the end of my trip!!
All the dishes our group ordered were delicious. I think the fettuccini and gnocchi were the best I've had, both very rich and creamy. Multiple options if you are gluten free.
Took a group of 16 there for dinner on 3/1. Everything from the food, service to seating was great. One area to improve on would be the wine list.
Good service good food okay price but not thrilled with automatic 20% service charge
Average Italian food. Ordered the antipasto special. It was good, but certainly NOT worth $56.
Booked a last minute reservation. We were accommodated quickly and the service was very good. Since we were in South Beach the prices were high and value only good. In particular we ordered an antipasto appetizer special and we got surprised that the price was $32, a little too high for the value. Limited amount of steak on the steak/salad combo but my Grouper was very good just not very hot.
Whenever we are in town we find an opportunity to eat here, be it lunch or dinner. Although it is street side, the terrace is a great place to dine. The noise is buffered from the street. The food is always incredible with superb waitstaff.
Delicious Italian food right on Ocean so loud music and a fun scene.
We had dinner here for New Year's Eve.
The food quality as excellent. The service outstanding and it filled our expectations.
The waiter was a gentleman from Venezuela and he went out of his way to make us feel good.
Lovely setting for New Year Eve. Service was top notch and food was great. Make sure to ask the price of specials. We had a wee surprise at the price of the special we ordered. It was was good but we sure wouldn't have ordered it if we had known it was $75.
Here for New Year's Eve - previous reviews mentioned to sit on the second floor and I requested the second floor when I booked the reservation. However, it was a great night and A LOT of great energy outside so when we arrived, we requested - and were granted - an outside table. Great place to people watch, food was amazing and Roberto - our waiter - very attentive for such a busy night. We were with three teenagers and it was a hit. The seating was tight, but we made some friends with the table next door. Fun night!
The positive is that the outdoor atmosphere is inviting and great. Unfortunately, that is our only positive. The service was subpar and the food was not good at all. The lasagna was burnt and didn't even taste like lasagna. The bolognese dish was bland and also not really edible. The spaghetti special was greasy and unappetizing. No one in our party enjoyed their meal. We won't be returning.
Great atmosphere on Ocean Drive. Hostess was accommodating and our food was served promptly.
Food was phenomenal . We had the filet with mushroom risotto along with fettucine and seafood. Management and Wait staff were so attentive . Enjoyed the night !
great & busy location (on Ocean Drive), good Italian food (as expected) and attentive waiter
Our waiter was top. Cared for our every request and futfilled them willingliy. Food was outstanding, we orderd 3 apps, 5 entres, and 4 deserts, spaced out so we werent constantly being fed and were able to converse and enjoy each course.
Very impromptu decision to have a quick dinner early and close to the hotel and was not disappointed. Fillet over risotto was superb and a very generous proportion. Service was excellent; attentive but did not feel rushed at all.
Option to eat inside or outside was nice. It was clean and the atmosphere was pleasant. There was no trashy rowdy people. The food was vey good and the waiter was attentive. I'm all about excellent customer service. I would recommend this restaurant.
Organized for a business dinner. Received periodic texts from restaurant point of contact.
