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.

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.

One of the best restaurants we have enjoyed in Miami or anywhere else. Manager was very attentive & insured everything went well. Beware, serving portions are large. We could have split both the appetizer & entree. We took home leftovers.

I found it very noisy. The waiter rushing around doesn’t help the ambience. The waiter to my table and the table next to us at the same time. I guess he felt his time was too valuable to repeat the specials twice. He was very annoyed when asked to repeat specials.
My appetizer mussels was brought out from the kitchen cold.
Our main dishes were fine, but we didn’t stay for coffee and dessert.

We returned to Osteria del Teatro yesterday for another memorable evening. The quality of the food and the expert preparation combine to offer a distinctive dining experience. You can add to that a top notch service staff. Christian was our servicer last night and he and his team were gracious and attentive. The owner, Gilbert, greeted us as we arrived and took a moment several times during the evening to check on our table. The pastas are homemade and cooked to perfection. We have tried a number of them and while all are delicious, our favorite is the fettuccine with tiger shrimp in a pink and creamy lobster sauce. The menu includes meat and fish entrees; and there is a full bar and a respectable wine list. Be sure to save room for dessert - the Tiramisu is fantastic!

Great service and good food. We ordered penne a la vodka, puttanesca and sea bass and they were all delicious. I loved that the fish was served with lentils. The bread basket was great and tasty. The staff was friendly and the location is right on Collins and there is parking everywhere around.

Excellent from the moment you are greeted by the owner at the door. Fabulous dining experience. The place is gorgeous. The food fantastic. Lots of great gourmet dishes with a home cooking touch. The owner is the ultimate host. We were customers at the previous location and this is two notches up. 5 stars well deserved.

Seated immediately on a Tuesday night - not crowded. Menu included excellent specials for both appetizers and entrees. We tried the baked tiger shrimp with goat cheese (not the extra large tiger shrimp) which was very good, and the lobster salad special - also tasty but not enough lobster. For entrees we had the black squid linguine with crabmeat in a curry sauce - very flavorful- as was the pasta special with porcini mushrooms in a pink lobster sauce. Also tried a crabmeat pasta dish - also very good. No room for dessert but had a good cappuccino. Servers were good and friendly - kept asking how everything was and refilling water glasses. The only negatives were that it took a while to get our appetizers and the bread was on the hard side and not warm. Overall very good - would go back (this was our 3rd time).
