Osteria Del Teatro is a fine dining Northern Italian restaurant with lots of Seafood influence. We have been in business for over 33 years. We are the oldest Italian restaurant in South Beach. We offer a very extensive menu with Homemade Pastas, Breads and Deserts. One of the reasons we have been so successful is that we only use the freshest and best products available. The other is that we provide excellent service. It is important that our customers feel at home when they enter our restaurant, Hence all our "Regulars". Look forward to you joining us and becoming one too.

we tried Osteria del Teatro, I had been here years ago in the old location, so this was my first time in the new location even though they moved about 3 years ago, the space is really beautiful inside, really nice atmosphere, outdoor you have the crazy busy Collins Avenue so, if you go, I would recommend to sit inside.
We had the Miami Spice dinner which is good value, I have to say that the regular menu looked a bit expensive and the food we had was ok, nothing amazing, I would say average, in all honesty I was hoping for better, I thought it was better when I went years ago, also the presentation of the dishes not the best. There are so many restaurants in Miami Beach and the competition is very high so I think there is a lot of room for improvement if you want.

We really enjoyed our meal. The service was impeccable. The veal parm was very good; the bolognese was delicious. The only downside is that the prices are higher than we expected - $64 for a veal chop. We eat out a lot and are used to paying for a good meal, but that’s really over-priced. I do recommend Osteria Del Teatro but it’s a bit too expensive.

A fantastic Italian restaurant in south beach with a extensive menu. The service is outstanding. They have some special dishes that are must haves--parpadelle with lobster in a pink sauce and their lobster napoleon. We have eaten here a number of times and everything has been wonderful. The restaurant is beautiful inside. If you want to change a dish ie replace mussels with clams, make something spicy or you prefer a tomato sauce over a cream sauce--they are happy to accommodate you. If you are in Miami you must try this restaurant. You will not be disappointed.

We started off at the bar for a happy hour drink. The bartender and cocktails were great. We then got seated food and staff were fabulous. It was our anniversary the staff brought over a complimentary piece of Taramusu and
About 8 staff members sang to us. I will absolutely go back.

This was our favorite meal on our visit to South Beach. The manager, staff and our server (older gentleman) were very friendly and professional. Service was impeccable. We enjoyed an appetizer special which was an enormous tiger shrimp and Caesar salads. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his pasta dish and I absolutely loved my Papperdelle con Astice! The lobster was substantial and the house made pasta and sauce memorable. Although full, I was determined to finish every bite! We didn’t have room for dessert but the display looked wonderful. We returned on our last day for the happy hour. The pasta stuffed with veal in a brown butter sage sauce and the seafood stuffed ravioli are an absolute must. Osteria del teatro will definitely bring us back to South Beach! Thank you!

This used to be a very good Italian restaurant. I remember that most anything you ordered was really nice tasting, This time I was disappointed with the pasta dish we ordered, both the taste and the aspect were substandard. Let's hope they improve the kitchen.

Wonderful dinner. Huge portions, consider sharing. No room for dessert (our only regret cause they looked divine). Waitress brought us a free dessert anyway! Large range of creative options. But the BEST is the table magician, Alexander!!! Not intrusive... but let him entertain you after ordering while you await your meal to arrive. He’ll blow your mind. Up close he does phenomenal magician. Been talking about it ever since.

This is Italian food as it is served in Italy..accomplished, complex but not odd flavors and only the freshest ingredients. Our two pasta dishes were outstanding--my fettuccine with wild shrimp easily the best pasta dish I've eaten since our last trip to Italy. The squid ink ravioli was a close second. Great wines, stunning desserts and friendly service. The setting is charmingly Italian...wonderful spot.

We dined 2/11/20. The food was wonderfully prepared. Service and attention to our table was excellent. The experience was consistent with the reviews that we had read elsewhere. I am fundamentally opposed to a mandatory service charge as it discourages good service but this was not the case for this establishment. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
