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.

This was our first visit to Osteria in their new location (3years). The ambiance was unlike many of the 'Miami modern' restaurants. We felt like we were in NYC! The details in the decor are beautiful.
The service (Carlos) and food were stellar! We will definitely go back.

Manuel (bartender), the owner, and the food were amazing; they made our 17th wedding anniversary memorable. The team even surprised us with an outstanding and complimentary tiramisu to celebrate!!

We went to Osteria Del Teatro for the first time in June. It was such a delightful, delicious experience, that we went back with our son and daughter-in-law a month later....we live in Boca Raton. To drive to Miami just for dinner? That says it all!

One of the best meals we have had in months. Impeccable service. Delicious food. Owner Gilbert could not have been nicer or more attentive. We are locals and cannot believe we hadn’t been here before. This will be a new staple for us. Thank you for a special evening!!

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!

Had a wonderful evening meal sitting at a nice outdoor table with great service and really good food. Server was very accommodating, even letting us order a plain grilled chicken breast for our dog. Thanks for a lovely evening.

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
