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.

I have been going to Osteria Del Teatro for years and never have I had a bad meal. The food is excellent as is the service and friendliness of the entire staff. The owner, Gil is warm and welcoming all the time. This time was no exception. If you want a really great meal in a beautiful restaurant with an Italian flare, go to Osteria Del Teatro and you will not be disappointed, to say the least!

We haven't been to Osteria Del Teatro in a while. I don't know what took us so long. The food, service and ambiance is perfect! Our only complaint is what is happening outside. The streets was packed and very loud. It has nothing to do with our feelings about the restaurant, but something needs to be done about the unruly crowds in South Beach!

Fabulous dinner for 6. Pasta fagoli soup was amazing. Buffalo mozzarella with prosciutto was plentiful to share. Fresh homemade pasta was delicious. Osso bucco had a lot of flavor and tender. Veal chop was cooked to perfection. Service was attentive. Would definitely go back.

While the wait staff and host were very attentive and friendly there were moments of confusion that did affect the dining experience. At least 3 different wait staff asked about water preference but only the last one brought the water, my husband had to ask for his non alcoholic drink several times, well after ordering when we were informed they did not have my husbands requested dish so the main course was delayed. The food was very good Italian - burrata and prosciutto was fresh and a nice size and the bread basket was very nice Pasta was delicious with a nice cream sauce and crab. We left very full.

Wonderful experience! Food was amazing, our waiter Rafael went aboye and beyond to make us feel great, the owner and the chef, both attentive, went by the table to make sure we liked everything! It is by far, the best Italian meal I’ve had in my life, and I have been in several places in town and out of town, including Casa Tua in Miami for example. Nothing compares with Osteria! I will be back for sure very soon, stellar experience!

I am quite puzzled as to how this place gets such favorable reviews. Overall, very disappointing considering the high prices, and very mediocre food; not bad, but certainly not great. We started with 2 appetizers, both of which were certainly below average. We had eggplant parmesan, which was mostly zucchini parmesan, with a sliver of eggplant, probably some of the worst eggplant Parmesan I’ve ever tried. Bland, and so firm it was almost impossible to cut with a knife. We also had tuna Tartare, which was not at all what we expected; it consisted of tiny cut up pieces of tuna rolled together with mayonnaise into a ball. It was ok, but not great, and certainly did not meet expectations.
The main courses were better, squid ink pasta with seafood, which was very good, and sea bass, which was a nice size piece very fresh and well prepared. I would probably give 4 stars for the main courses. The bread they gave us on the table was stale and bland, not good at all.
The service was excellent for the most part, until the end, when our waitress disappeared and it took a long time to get the check. I finally had to go inside and ask for it.

The food and service were outstanding as usual. We ate outside on their lovely patio, due to covid. Unfortunately the unruly traffic on Collins Avenue detracted from the experience.

Gilbert, the owner personally welcomes you and checks on you thru out your visit. The waitstaff takes care of everybody with good humor and expert knowledge of their extensive menu. The Food?, we rate it bar far one of the finest meals we have ever eaten. Perfect hand made ravioli, rack of lamb, succulent mussels and lavish apple and chocolate cake for dessert. Nothing could be improved. Simply the best and huge surprise for Miami Beach. Thanks Wilnaj, our server for an unforgettable experience and Thanks Gilbert for the Limoncello. Lisa and I have owned restaurants and Inn's in our past and I have a culinary arts degree. Your passion and attention to detail is simply incredible, especially for being in business so long. We feel for the restaurant industry during these trying times and wish you much continued success.

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.
