Italian
Osteria Del Teatro is a fine dining Northern Italian restaurant with lots of Seafood influence. We have been in business for almost 30 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.

It is not what it used to be when it was located in Washington street. It had more character and charm. The owner would come to the table and greet you, chat and offer you things out of the menu. Now the service since the tip is included already on your bill, do not pay attention to small things that make a big difference. They should teach the cook how to make a decent taste satin. Dough was still raw. It feels more like a tourist trap.

The last time we ate at Osteria was when it was located on Washington. It certainly has gone downhill since.
The menu has far too many options. The daily specials are overwhelming. No kitchen can do a good job with so many items.
The staff tried to be accommodating, but ended up asking every 10 minutes if everything was ok. A little too much. Despite the restaurant being less that half full, everything took too long to prepare. My wife's black pasta has a weird lemon sauce that certainly did not match the flavor of the pasta.The sauce on my Linguine Vongele was almost like a soup. Very overrated.

We had such a great experience, food, service and Gilbert's welcoming presence on our first visit during our vacation, that we book a second for our last evening in South Beach. Our last evening in South Beach was made even more memorable, I only wished we lived in Miami so we could become weekly regulars! A fantastic restaurant, thank you to all the staff at Osteria Del Teatro!

Although we love this restaurant and visit it every time we come to Miami, this time it was disappointing. Service was poor, glasses were always empty. We were not offered the day’s special, unlike the table next to us. In the past, waiters were eager to accommodate and actually we were suggested modifications to all the plates. This time we were told flat out that they couldn’t modify anything, not even switch one type of pasta to another. We were not offered dessert and had to request it. Obviously we were not offered an expresso or coffee, in an Italian restaurant!!!. This is very sad because as I said, we used to love the place and recommended it to everyone. Now we will think twice next time.

The best meal we have had during our 7 day visit to south beach. It takes a lot to impress me because I am a very good cook and I was impressed. I had the sea bass and my husband had a pasta with bolanase sauce made with filet I would and have recommended this restaurant to others I have sent at least 10 people who I have met at our hotel to this restaurant. Loved it and will return There were lots of locals there which indicates to me it’s a great restaurant

We come here at least once whenever we are in Florida. It has been wonderful for many years. We had wonderful knowledgeable service, The table next to us had a different server. It was also their first visit to this truly wonderful restaurant. Sadly, the confusion with which they were served is likely to make it their last. We will be back!

Osteria is by far the best Italian restaurant in town . My family and I been eating there since it opened . We are never disappointed . The food is fresh and delicious . They understand the key to good cooking is judicious use of butter . From the very tasty bread to their wonderful desserts , the menu is outstanding .

I would give Osteria Del Teatro five stars if they had better desserts—the carmelized apple tart is a mess! The combo alla griglia appetizer is exquisite—one of the best I’ve ever eaten. The veal is terrific, especially francese style. I wouldn’t recommend the osso buco—the portion is way too big, and lacks depth of flavor. The owner and waiters, and the staff in general, are very attentive. The space is airy and festive.

Good food, good service, lovely atmosphere. Polite and mindful waiters to make sure your entire meal goes well. The lobster mango is highly recommended. I ask for it every time I visit. All pastas are superb. The only concern I had was withe the rack of lamb - it needed more oomph and was bland, but plentiful. Will always return when I visit. Reliable food, service, and great atmosphere.

We had a great dinner at Osteria Del Teatro. We were celebrating my husband and brother-in-law's birthdays. After our original reservation was cancelled (at another establishment), Osteria was able to get us in last-minute - and they were great. The service was attentive and helpful (we had several questions about the dishes and their advice was spot-on). The food, itself, was flavorful and delicious - and, in a few cases (the chicken parmesan), came in huge portions. We had a wonderful birthday dinner and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Jefe de sala muy simpático, servicio eficiente aunque olvidaron el pan. Las ensaladas son ridículamente pequeñas y poco elaboradas para su precio. La pasta muy buena, pero a precio desorbitado. Tal vez sea la tónica en la zona Southbeach...
Buenos postres muy tradicionales y trato agradable. La cuenta elevada, probablemente al nivel de los restaurantes de la zona. En general, la experiencia fue agradable, el servicio ayuda a que así sea
