Cacio e Pepe Ristorante Italiano offers timeless Italian specialties that promise to transport diners’ palates to various regions of Italy for a truly traditional culinary experience. Chef Stefano Mazzi’s real passion will reside in Cacio e Pepe’s fish offerings as a true homage to his roots from the Italian Riviera. Mazzi’s fish preparation will distinguish his style as he embraces the light textures and flavors of snapper and sea bass as well his own take on Fruti di Mare. Cacio e Pepe also plans to feature a specialty Italian Brunch on the weekends which will be one month after its opening

Cacio e Pepe was a good restaurant on the verge of being very good. I believe the location opened up not too long ago so there were a lot of common things I saw with newly opened up restaurants like a lot of confusion with servers, a lot of fast paced running around, no real system set up but with all that the food came out very good and the servers were very nice. The location is small and the noise level is very high from the other diners. This for me is not too much of a negative as it was buzzing with energy and everyone was having a nice conversation and good time. I’ll definitely be back again.

The food is average and it is too noisy to talk with friends on a Saturday night. It's a weekday place in my opinion

Very good and authentic Italian in light, modern surroundings. Not at all the tired, old-school dark cavern you often see. Calimari was the freshest I’ve had maybe ever. Pasta dishes we had were all excellent, comparable to much more expensive places. Linguine with clam sauce was the star. House Montepulciano went down smooth, in fancy modern glasses, I had 2.
Service was just a touch on the slow side, but they are new and I think still ironing out some kinks.
Finished with Cannoli, sometimes cannoli cream can be bland, this was perfect.
One suggestion, salt and pepper mills at the tables. It’s not necessary for the main dishes but I like to salt and pepper some olive oil and balsamic (which is provided) in a dish for dipping bread.

Cacio e Pepe is fantastic! The food is fresh and interesting.
The polpette are tender and tasty. The lamb was moist and the grilled polpo was excellent! We will definitely be back.

This was a wonderful experience. One of the best maybe the best Italian restaurants in Aventura. The staff is super fun and friendly. We had a really engaging conversation with our waiter Tyler. Frankly I would go back just for him. The decor transports you to Italy, I really feel like I’m eating in a house it’s fantastic.
The wine list had a wonderful list of Italian wines, some varieties that I haven’t seen outside of Italy. The food presentation was outstanding and I could believe how great it tasted. I had the buratta with tomatoes it was extremely creamy and I felt like I was in heaven. My partner had the octopus to start, it was perfectly grilled. For the second course I had the Cacio e Pepe (a Roman pasta dish made with cheese and pepper) it was mouthwatering. My parter has the fettuccine con porcini she couldn’t believers good it was.
Overall it’s be of the best restaurant experiences in Miami. Thank you Tyler and the rest of the cacio e Pepe staff. We will be back.

I was told the restaurant has been open for a couple of months. Their decor is an eclectic garage sale-esque collection of stuff and the acoustics amplify a normal conversation to an annoying level. It was not busy when I had dinner on a Tuesday night but the service was distracted and very inattentive, even after repeated attempts to get their attention. I had their signature pasta, Cacio & Pepe, which met the basic criteria for the dish but will not make the cut in the competitive Italian restaurant scene of the area. Particularly at the price-point for their pasta dishes which ranges from the high teens to mid 20ties.
If arriving from the South, heading back South again after eating can be a difficult and frustrating challenge as there is no way to turn South or make a U-turn on Biscayne.

Risotto average at best. Same for the signature dish, cacio e pepe. If you're gonna be in Aventura you're gonna play to a picky crowd. Very nice looking place but unless something drastically changes foodwise, they'll be gone in 6 months.
