We went here because my father remembered this place as a very dear place.
Since the moment the server came to the table I felt that all he cared for was selling us the most expensive plates that were not part of the menu.
The food was average and very pricey- yes Miami is pricey and for that you expect excellence or at least above average, but this was definitely BELOW.
It was a complete rip off- we ordered the apple tart as a dessert which was priced at $12 the asked is- would you like it with ice cream? We said yes- it is normal in any type or quality of restaurants that it includes the Ice cream in the price or it will at least be a compliment, to our surprise we were charged $8 just for two balls of regular vanilla ice cream.
Besides this the service was very poor, there were a ton of servers that were all gathered around the same area talking among them and giving no care to customers. We even had to ask them to please pick up and remove our plates when we finished eating since it has been almost 10 minutes since all members of the table were done eating and nobody picked them up.
Please please DO NOT go there, and don’t get me wrong I love to eat and I’m willing to pay high prices in exchange for quality t and good service but this is a complete scam.

Loved this place. Great space. Great service. Great food. Not what I'd call "value" - But it's South Beach!! Everything is about 140%-150% of what it should be, but I chalk that up to my antiquated thinking that only Manhattan can get away with that kind of pricing. Once I normalize for where I'm at, this place is fairly priced and the food, decor and service are excellent.

What an amazing meal. The wait staff was super attentive and the food was incredible. My date and I both had pasta dishes that were superb. The portions were also very generous. We’ll be sure to go back.

Everything about this resturant was amazing. The ambiance was very nice. The owner Gilbert as well as his staff were very friendly knowledgeable and hilarious. They have a great selection of entrees. And if you dont see exactly what you want dont hesitate to ask becauae they can make anything. Hands down the best authentic italian food we ve had. And now one of our favorite resturants

Our waiter was disappointing. Interupted us mid conversion. Would ask how the food was, after each serving, usually when we had a mouth full. He also did not come across as sincere.

We love this restaurant! Another favorite to go to when visiting South Beach. We always ask for our favorite waiter Rafael, who has been there for years. I have Celiac and they always can make whatever I want gluten-free. They do serve gluten-free penne, which taste great! When the place is this good and I don’t get sick that’s a real gem!

Visiting South Beach ? This is a must for spectacular food and impeccable service! I was in the area for a business trip and dined there on consecutive Saturday evenings. The menu features many Italian favorites along with a selection of chef specials. Delicious food!

Second time I’ve been - first time 2 years ago was very very good second time was exceptional. Our waiter Juan(sue)? was a consummate professional from start to finish. His attention to detail, his warm and friendly attitude coupled with superb food and ambience made this a very memorable evening for me and my family. The owner came over and introduced himself and made sure everything was perfect - obviously knows how to put all the pieces together to ensure a fabulous experience.
5 very well deserved stars!

One of my top 5 Italian meals ever. Blown away with the freshness, taste, and overall experience. Burrata was so fresh and delicious and reminded me of Italy. Ossobuco was the best I have ever had and I've had a lot at top restaurants. Highly recommend this restaurant.

The filet mignon special I had was fantastic. 3 filet discs with a mushroom sauce, lentils, scallop potatoes,and green beans was great. The fruit tulip was amazing. (A bowl made out of almonds, filled with raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries with a good portion of home made whipped-cream was excellent as well. I'll definitely be back!
