The Best Italian Restaurants in Miami

The OpenTable Team

Miami is one of the nation's great cultural melting pots, which makes for a dining scene that excels in all kinds of international cuisines — and Italian food is no exception. Whether they're newcomers to the scene or long-established favorites, the best Italian restaurants in Miami present authentic, artistically plated dishes prepared with the finest local ingredients. But where do Italian cuisine connoisseurs eat out in Miami? This is the Tastemaker 20. We used data from thousands of restaurants and OpenTable's most expert diners to determine the top spots. Some are chic spaces along world-famous Ocean Drive, others are historic venues in the Art Deco district, and many more are neighborhood spots ready to welcome hungry visitors and locals alike. We suggest booking a table at one of these Italian eateries, pronto!
