Best authentic Italian food in Miami
Server made an error inputting our entree order into the system which resulted in 1 dish coming out much earlier (15 minutes) before all others. The 1 dish was taken to the back to warm back up. Additionally, we had to ask for more water, as they were either understaffed or not paying attention. It was quality food but just average service.
I absolutely loved this place, the service was beyond AMAZING, from the gentleman who sat us to the amazing waitress, everything was perfect. The food and the drinks were AWESOME! I loved it so much I even went back for takeout from there! LOVE LOVE LOVE!
nice restaurant and good service, but the food was not good and it was very expensive!
Great awesome staff food impeccable and authentic... brought 6 quest and ll loved everything we had. We did family style to try everything sooooo delicious
WE WERE STUCK. There was no indication of a fixed price limited menu on the open table booking site. It wasn’t until we were seated and shown the menu that we were aware of the limited menu and pricing. We stayed because we had no other options on New Year’s Eve. We have enjoyed La Moderna in the past, but the choices were not great and the food was unremarkable.
Terrible New Year’s rip off. Stay away.
Great Italian in a great neighnorhood. Friendly service. Under appreciated relative to its excellence.
We sat outside on patio. Was great. Will return
The most delicious food and the absolute best service!!! Loved loved this restaurant!!!
Excellent food and service!! Nice clean setting. One of the best options in the area for a nice real italian meal!
Really nice romantic place and our server Pasquale was really attentive and nice even tho we had just Miami spice, he didn't lower his hospitality like they do at other places. All the food was great, simple but tasty like they do it in Italy. Butternut squash ravioli were the best ravioli I had! The texture was perfect.. Will be back for sure.
Decent Italian. Fairly quiet spot. Nothing spectacular but good.
Party of 12, no one liked their entree.
The service was exceptional. Ricardo knows the menu, the wine list and his recommendations were followed in most cases. The food was very good, eggplant fresh and tasty, fettuccine noodles made on premises with balanced seasonings, and the cheesecake was to die for.
A fine Italian restaurant. Helpful waiter and good food. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Convenient parking garage that is not too expensive for Miami Beach.
Very Nice restaurant, great staff, very good food, Try this place.
Honestly, the food was plain, boring, bland and tasteless. My friend who loves the vegan and vegetarian options (she doesn’t even cook with salt), thought everything was boring.
Service was good tho. The best tasting items were the desserts.
Delicious restaurant and the service was spot on. Miami spice is going on and our fabulous waitress jucie was the best. She told us her favorites and we listened! She was right it was great
Average Italian at best.
Bartender was very nice.
Arrived 7 minutes before happy hour was supposed to end ... manager would not let us order happy hour bar food, only drinks. We had to order off of regular menu.
Absolutely amazing from the moment we walked in. Wonderful ambiance, incredibly crafted cocktails and the food was delicious. Will be back this weekend!
Food was nicely done. Orders came out awkwardly but were all good.ambience is good, parking on street plentiful. Able to eat well and share plates for about $60-75 a couple.
Great!!.... food delish,,, service great,,, offering. A great MImi spice menu
The food was delicious and moderately priced. Corkage was modest and the service was most attentive. Definitely worth it!
Amazing food and staff! Juicie was a terrific waitress !
The staff did a great job. Made minor mistakes with some dishes and drinks but other than that the restaurant felt authentic and modern.
Amazing as always. My favorite Italian Restaurant on South Beach.
Very friendly staff. Great food and enjoyable experience.
This restaurant is a neighborhood gem. It’s like being welcomed into someone’s home and then being fed a feast. I take everyone who visits me in Miami Beach to this restaurant because I have always had a great meal and everyone leaves feeling like they have met new friends in the waiters and service and hosts. I’m there so often I get a hug from the hosts when ever I arrive. I had hesitated to write a great review for fear too many people would find out and go but La Moderna deserves the praise. Go! You will enjoy every minute and every bite!
Our favorite Authentic Italian Restaurant in Miami Beach.
Overall,our experience was great(food,service),however this was the lady's 70th birthday,which was mentioned on the Open Table reservation and it was not acknowledged in anyway by the staff,management or kitchen. That was quite disappointing.
Surprisingly good local Italian. Somewhat limited menu, but better than routine dishes available, including pizza. Friendly, efficient service and moderate prices (for pasta mostly), another pleasant surprise. Interior seating can be noisy, as louder bar scene echoes throughout, but seating in the rear is better.
Josie and Arturo are awesome. best Italian joint in Miami Beach...nice atmosphere
Only trouble we had was with communication. We couldn't understand them well and they couldn't understand us, speaking English. Otherwise good and service were great.
Nice find for us when visiting in South Beach. Great oven for focaccia & pizza, interesting and tasty cuisine. Very friendly and super attentive service to our party of 4. We would definitely go back!
Personale gentile cibo buono considerando che siamo in America . Come essere in Italia anche se versano continuamente l’acqua è da un po’ fastidio
Poi tutto ok
A Very cozy restaurant with homemade Italian food really good, I always go there with my boyfriend when I want a quality meal.
The service was great , the time we wait for the food was nothing, really fast.
The prices are good, and so the portions of the food.
I really recommend this place.
Also the happy hour , is the best !!!!!!!!!
La Moderna is my favorite Italian restaurant when I am visiting Miami. They fo out of their way to accommodate my son's food allergies. Their pizza is prepared by a woman from Napoli and their fish is delicious.
Everything was great but I did not get my 100 points for reserving with Open Table.Fratelli La Buffalo and La Moderna restaurants , these two being sister restaurants , do not give the points when one reserves through open table. Very strange.
