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 will be going back next week. The food, wine, service, and atmosphere were excellent. They do a great job of managing for Covid, with a bottle of sanitizer on each table. The worst part of the evening was having to decide what to order - too many great choices.

If there could be 6 stars for food, I would rate Osteria that way. The menu recommendations from the staff were exceptional. Next time we return to Miami, this is our first stop.

Amazing Italian food! Great spot for a date or for a group of friends. My husband and I always come here when we are in Miami. They always have amazing specials despite an already huge menu...something for everyone! The food is outstanding and the owner is extremely friendly and caring. We will continue to come here!!

They won’t see me again . We braved the storm. Only 2 other tables turned up. It was a birthday celebration and a bottle of champagne was paid for still insisted we have to pay extra for opening a bottle of wine which was a birthday gift

Thanks for choosing us to celebrate your birthday. Before you came, you did call and ask about our corkage policy. Surprising that you still insisted on not paying. I told you that times are tough and we are just trying to keep the doors open. I thought you'd understand. I'm also surprised that you didn't mention that I did buy you 3 limoncellos and a dessert for your birthday. We are running a business in the middle of a pandemic. Also, I believe your dinner was taken care of by another guest.

This is the BEST Italian restaurant for Celiacs. They take such caution in preparing your meals. We had the lobster mango salad to start. The flavor of this combination is amazing. I had penne with clams that was delicious. We have visited this restaurant every time we visit South Beach. Gilberto is the owner, who is very friendly. Raphael is the manager, who runs the show. This place is a must to eat at!🍷🍷🍝🍝

Teatro del Osteria has been a favorite of mine for many years. The food is always delicious and the service is outstanding. I introduced two of my friends from Coral Gables to the restaurant last weekend and they are excited to bring their friends.

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.
