Spaghetti with bottarga is amazing!
The food was very good! Almond pesto pasta out of this world! Good wine selection, everyone loved their food and the outdoor seating and ambiance was very cozy yet lots of space. Very comfortable - will return!
We have dined outside twice in the past week. A new restaurant for us. First time for lunch. Second time for Sunday brunch. There should be more customers for lunch and for brunch! A South of Fifth keeper.

Have been wanting to come here on seeing the restaurant and reading about it. Both my husband and I were very pleased with our outdoor dining experience in all aspects. Our waitress was great, very pleasant, gave good recommendations on specials and liked that she was not pushing you to order more. The Frito Mixto was excellent and the special 22oz Ribeye was tenderly delicious and a huge portion for 2. We shall return.
Vey attentive waitstaff, lovely atmosphere at outside table
Miami Spice menu is creative and appetizer portions are large.
Really cute restaurant, delicious food would definitely recommend it!
Simple yet elegant authentic Italian cuisine. The meatball melts in your mouth. Stellar staff. We will make Amare a regular dinner experience.❤️
Beautiful space, friendly attentive staff. Unfortunately the food was not great. I’m all for simple preparation, but unseasoned chicken, uncooked peppers and underdone farro doesn’t cut it. My other dinner guests felt the same about their meals as well.
I highly recommend Amare! Delicious food, beautiful atmosphere, and excellent service!
Amare exceeded my expectations. The service was exceptional and the food was fantastic. I highly recommend their outdoor patio, which has an amazing view.
Great service and food
Service was fantastic and the food Super Delicious. Highly recommend!!!!
Authentic Italian 🇮🇹 Great food & service! We recommend the lamb chops & branzino....deeeelish! Will definitely be back for more!!!
Amare is a neighborhood gem. All dishes are made to order fresh and delicious. This is my "go to" place since it's quieter and the food quality surpasses most of SoBe restaurants - hands down!
Even with the difficulty of dining during a pandemic, Amare was a great pleasure. The food was terrific. Nadia brought her authentic Italian hospitality to her service of our table.
Veal was interesting. Not typical preparation of Saltimbuca so that should have been explained on menu or upon ordering...sauce on the lasagna tasted canned. It wasn’t bad just didn’t seem fresh and home made as one would expect. The outdoor space at Amare is great, good breezes from the ocean. Should get DJ on weekend days to attract a little crowd. Place felt empty w only 3 tables dining.
Food was mediocre. Definitely not worth the price. Server and manager were very polite but very slow and it was not busy at all. The patio area was nice.
It was an excellent place for a date. Location was amazing, restaurant ambience was superb and food/drinks was very flavorful and taste very authentic italian cuisine.
Our server Nadia was very attentive and made our dining experience pleasant.
All of the dishes and drinks that she recommended are spot on.
The prices are just right for the quality of food and they had a great selection for miami spice.
Everything about it was perfect! Went twice while we were in Miami. We are from NYC definitely recommend.
The food and service are always excellent. I was happy to see this even with the current pandemic where they also adhered to all safety standards.
The food is always excellent and the restaurant unique and lovely. Great area too for outdoor dining. The only thing they need to work on a bit is the service.
I did not like it............................................
Not sure if it was an off night but there were several issues with service. First we waited about 15 minutes for our waitress (who was very sweet) and another 15 minutes to get the drinks we had ordered. We were there for Miami Spice so were ordered all 3 courses at the same time. The appetizers came out with one of the entrees (pasta). The other entree (whole fish) came out about 10 minutes later and we had to wait for the waitress to serve it (while we watched flies gather on it). The branzino was delicious but by then the pasta was not so good. We ordered 2 more drinks and the vodka and soda was something else, sent it back and it was wrong the second time. We decided to cut our losses and get the dessert to go. The tiramasu was very good but the panna cota was grainy. I DO NOT blame this on our waitress at all because it was a lack of cohesiveness with everyone that worked there.
Excellent! Would highly recommend. The octopus was perfect and our bottle of wine was very fairly priced. We’ll be back!
Nadia was exceptional. She had us so engaged and laughing throughout our whole dinner. All of the recommendations were great! Amazing Miami Spice menu with nice portion sizes. The ambiance and decor is beautiful.
Definitely will be back.
If you're looking for a nice romantic place to go on a date. This is it. the food is amazing, the lighting makes it romantic and the staff is so attentive. Now with the COVID-19 thing i saw the staff cleaning constantly, chairs, tables and everything in between. Th waiters wore masks and didn't stand close you you. The menu was also offered online which was so handy-dandy. Overall, i loved it. Will defiantly be returning.
Probably they use left over goods before quarantine. I can understand that but a Chef be responsible for operating like this he could see that the restaurant was not fully booked like everywhere else around Amare. Opportunity for less food cost is not what a good restaurateur should do at any times.
First night out after the pandemic and it was a wonderful experience. The servers were not only attentive but very aware of the situation, where all in masks and gloves and made us feel very comfortable about being out. The food was great and it was one of the nicest meals I've had even before the pandemic.
Came here for Miami Spice a few weeks ago. Their menu has some unique items like sea bass ravioli, but ultimately we decided to go for the Spice menu since that is for a limited time. Tuna carpaccio, branzino, and tiramisu were delicious! They have a great outdoor space. Service was quite slow that night but apparently they had some new staff so it is likely better now. I definitely recommend!
Awesome. The best Branzino I think I have ever had. Great design. Fun just being there.
Amazinggg dinner !! Our server was by hinself and still managed to give us amazing service ! Will deff come back
Food was awful. Two people got sick to their stomach. We were there at 7pm practically first guest yet they were out of entree from the Miami spice.
Nice outdoor venue with tables more than 6 feet apart. Staff were very friendly and always wore masks and glove. Appetizers were very large and the main courses were enough to share.
Food was great and the outside patio has a lot of charm
We had a delicious meal here! Service and food were both wonderful! We will definitely come here again the next time we visit Miami!
Very expensive and not very tasty. Charged us $8 for water and my girlfriend ordered ravioli for $30 and only came with 4 ravioli. Food wasn’t even that good.
The squid-ink pasta is an absolute game changer. We ordered two of the chef’s samplers and it was incredible. The pesto was fresh. Our waitress was actually from Italy and spoke of flavors and wine pairings that made the entire experience really elevated. Will be back when I’m in town next!
Excellent outdoor patio...very relaxing. Food was great...we go once ever couple weeks
