Macchialina Taverna Rustica
Friday & Saturday 6pm-11:30pm
We have been here multiple times and every time.
Great service, good food, excellent ambience
Not a fan of the atmosphere of this place. Also do not see the point in making a reservation when we’re asked to wait to be seated anyway. I really dislike that they continuously lit candles throughout every table. It’s very dangerous and makes me super uncomfortable. Also don’t like the 10 dollar pasta specials, it’s fine if you like sharing but I’ve had better quality pasta elsewhere. The portions are just way too small. It seems like they do this purposely to milk as much money out of you as possible. I have no problem with this if the food was absolutely amazing but it’s really not. I wasn’t blown away. The quality of the overall pasta is good but the sauces and ingredients are not very good. I also really dislike the foodie atmosphere, it’s obnoxious but I guess that’s exactly the kind of crowd this type of restaurant wants to attract anyway. Honestly, I prefer fratelli la Bufala. Service is better, food is much better and likely much more authentic and we never have to wait to be seated especially if we have a reservation. Also, Scott Conant approved so you know it’s good.
Food is always incredible. Pasta night is a must! The service and attention to detail excel on all ends of this restaurant. The awesome hip hop is the background is always a plus.
Everything was amazing!!! Service was great!!! And the buster was awesome, he was on point, always on top of the water service, and I drink a lot, lol. The special pasta dishes on Thursday is great.
Consistently One of the very best restaurants in Miami Beach. The prices are reasonable as
Great food and customer service. Personal preference would be for portions to be a little larger, but it’s not too small.
i reccommend very good food
Wonderful dining experience. The food was amazing and customer service was outstanding. One of the best dining experiences in Miami.
Great food! Great service
Love the food, love the place . Unfortunately service was not good. We arrived at the place and asked the waiter who was in charge of taking the reservations if we could sit as we were a party of 4 and my 2 other friends were just parking. They told us no - in a rude way. Then our server was rude - trying to push us to order quickly.
It is very unfortunate because I do like the restaurant - and it just leaves a bad taste and wondering if I should go back.
Hubby and I were here for our mini vacation after renovating our new home in Tampa so we wanted to experience a higher level of dining than we can find on a limited basis in Tampa and boy, did this place ring the bell!!!! The interior is so warm and friendly and Kelly, our server, was on point! She was lovely, charming knowledgeable and attentive without being pesky. All of her recommendations were fantastic. Hubby had lasagne with short rib meat and after tasting his, it put my usually fantastic lasagne to shame. Incredible! My branzino was amazing! Granted, perfection does not come cheap, but trust me, it’s worth every single bite!!!!
Wonderful as always... Food is delicious The waitresses just adorable Wine is perfect Love the place
Great service and tasty food. However main dishes were too small...great wine selection.
Food is always good, particularly the branzino...the bread pudding for dessert is amazing! Our server was not very nice however, seemed bothered whenever we asked for something and ignored me when I asked him to take a picture...I guess because the gratuity is included he felt he didn’t need to try...
The hostess was sweet & very accommodating! The bartender was awesome too!
This was our 2nd time for dinner and we were not disappointed! Had the special of the night, bolonessa. The homemade pasta is such a pleasure. So glad we live two blocks from here!
This is one of my favorite spots on the beach. The pasta is amazing! My favorite dish is the spaghetti with tomato sauce and basil. I go on Thursday’s when all of their pastas are just $10. Great service too!
The lasagna was full of flavor but way overcooked. Pasta that is overcooked at an Italian restaurant is a big no no. It was mushy.
Best Italian food on South Beach 🏖 Now our favorite Restraunt ❤️
We had a great time - the burrata appetizer was excellent as was the veal milanese. Wine list is quite expansive.
Really solid spot. Our party had numerous dishes and everything was fantastic. The starters were outstanding and there was fresh pasta as the base of many of the main courses. They were even able to accommodate a gluten free diner with great options. The bar tender was very good as well, which doesn't always happen in a food focused spot. Great food and good value if you're looking for old world Italian and don't mind (or would prefer) being a few blocks off the strip.
Absolutely perfect. Chefs tasting menu did not disappoint. Incredible server who was knowledgeable, personable and really made us feel comfortable and welcome. It’s easy to see why this place continues to be popular.
We have been here many times and normally get the tasting menu - this time we were less hungry so ordered individual plates. In terms of value for money, the tasting menu is better as the individual plates (pasta specifically) are small and still pricey. Still, the food is super.
Good overall but extremely noisy! Almost couldn’t talk to people in our group.
We appreciate the hard work of the Chef Owner Michael and wife Jen put in day in and day out to produce original Italian tasty and delicious dishes. Great service and great ambience, Straigh out of NY!
Always so good! Amy is the SWEETEST and most hospitable bartender :)
I absolutely love this place and Chef Peroli and Jenn are the sweetest owners and are in the crowd talking to the patrons. Great staff and True Italian food, all ingredients from Italy for the the pasta. Amazing. A MUST IN MIAMI BEACH!!!!
Delicious. Would def return
Place never disappoints. Hands down the best italian spot in all of Miami. 10 dollar pasta night is a nice added touch.
The food is exceptional. From the best lasagna in the US to their modern twist on the classic Tiramisu.
I can not recommend this place more. Don't let your taste buds wait any longer, book yourself a table.
Really terrific food and service. The artichoke mezzaluna and the funghi appetizer salad were ridiculously good. The service is also friendly and attentive. Would definitely get five stars if not for the fact that it’s too loud and too cold, which really interferes with the whole experience.
This is a must visit restaurant in Miami. It was the best meal we had all week. It is a small restaurant. The tables are close to one another and it’s loud. That was the only complaint, but it’s not enough of an issue to take away from a top rating. Highly recommend!
Everything we were served tasted really good. The service was excellent too.
I have been going for years now but unfortunately the pasta this past week was undercooked on the Fungi and cacio e pepe sauce was thick and cold. Very unlike any time I have eaten here before. Super disappointing because I brought friends with me.
I go to this restaurant a lot. This was the worst service I have ever had. Our waitress was not attentive and did not put in our order when she should have. Accordingly, it ruined the entire experience. I wish I could remember her name so that I could warn you!
Phenomenal tasting menu with wine pairings, and great value too! Wonderful service and atmosphere, and nice to get away from the typical SOBE scene.
Wonderful way to spend our anniversary. Food amazing. Have the tasting menu. You will not be disappointed.
Amazing meal! Other than trying to find parking in South Miami, it was well worth the drive and I would highly recommend this place for the wonderful food and great service! I would definitely come back on my next trip to Miami!
A friend recommended this restaurant.. we loved our food !
The restaurant has a nice vibe .. it’s cozy and intimate because of the size .. nice rustic feeling
The service was efficient and extremely friendly .. looking forward to going back
Fantastic experience. Wait staff give honest recommendations and are quite attentive!
