The attention paid by Marcello the owner was the gravy on the top of a lovely meal. We are Miami Beach residents and we had a nice chat about the construction of Espanola (which was causing quite a bit of dust at the time at outdoor seating but should have been initially paved by now) and doing business in Miami Beach, which is always upgrading but always under construction! He gave us after-dinner drinks, a nice touch. Our food was very enjoyable and reasonably priced for being able to sit outside on a beautiful street like Espanola Way (which doesn't have a great rep among locals for food, so this is a great find. Our visitor loved it.). One of us had the Penne Pesto (with both chicken and shrimp, the best bargain at $18.50) , another had shrimp risotto and the last had salmon risotto. The risotto was PERFECTLY cooked. All delicious and even tho none of us had an appetizer, two of us took some leftovers home. Our server Nathalia was excellent. We share a bottle of Albarino, very good. We will be happy to return.
