CRUST earned OpenTable’s coveted "100 Best Restaurants in America" for 2017 and in 2019 for the second time!
Acclaimed chef/owner Klime Kovaceski and his Australian wife Anita are the proud owners of CRUST Restaurant, serving unparalleled pizza and modern American-Italian cuisine in the scenic and rapidly trending area by the Miami River.
The pizza toppings utilize the freshest ingredients and feature tantalizing choices such as Truffled Pizza with arugula, parmesan and truffle oil, and our signature namesake Pizza with fig, prosciutto blue cheese. Pies such as these propelled CRUST onto The Daily Meal, Eat This, and YELP "The Best Pizza in America" guides.

We love this place and I bring anyone I can who has never tried it. The chicken parm is always a favorite and the veal parm I tried this time was fantastic! Will of course return again and again.

    We traveled to Miami to go look a cruise. We wanted to find a restaurant the night before the cruise that would be a good restaurant. Crust wasn't good. Crust was great. Huge portions of very tasty food. Service was excellent. This restaurant might be a hidden gem that is absolutely worth going to.

    I had originally done my research and found great reviews on the food and the service. However, it was actually above and beyond what my expectations were. The food was definitely great (which I will claim to be very picky for Italian food) but the service was outstanding. By far one of the very few restaurants in the Miami area that have this level of service. Coming from NY where I’m used to great attentive service, most restaurants in Florida in my option lack service. This place however was GREAT! Jose (our waiter) and Anita were very hospitable and very attentive. Definitely recommend this place. I will be coming here more often. Jose - Huge shout out for the great recommendations and making this place feel like a great neighborhood home feeling.

    This was our second time visiting Crust. We realize that costs have gone up every- where, but we found the cost to be out of proportion to the food. We ordered the meatball appetizer that has two large meatballs and a scoop of ricotta, to share between the two of us, since we had them the first time we went and loved them, and although the tomato sauce was excellent, the meatballs were a bit dense and flavorless this time. We then had a mushroom/truffle pizza which was ok, but not worth the $23.00 or so that it cost. We each had two glasses of wine and shared a Key Lime pie that was very good. The bill came to about $110 plus gratuity. By the way, our server Jordin was outstanding, and other waiters were constantly refilling our water glasses. The owner came by at dessert time with a free glass of cherry cordial. A nice touch! Overall, we may visit again to try our luck one more time!

    CRUSTResponded on June 8, 2022

    When my wife and I go out for dinner, we pay more than double for far less than half of the food we serve at CRUST (and I don’t even drink). As for the quality of our food, we'll let our ratings an all platforms speak for themselves. We do appreciate you for complimenting our service and ambiance, and, yes prices of everything we buy, not just the food ingredients are through the roof, actually, they are skyrocketing. Happy dining out there.

    Great atmosphere, excellent service and the food quality amazing! The taste of the food was so wholesome and homey that you w think you are in a busy restaurant. Portion size - oh my god - for the price its amazingly large. The chicken parm -rightfully hailed as probably the best in the US. The Pizzas taste great and are loaded with filling. And those Brussels sprouts were amazing as well and so many of them. Overall a great experience!

    I had great expectations for this place but I was very disappointed, the portions a huge but that does not means that big is better in this case Bottom line the problem is that they are not an Italian restaurant it’s an American restaurant that serves Americanized Italian food If you are into real Italian flavors this is not your place Tomato sauce very sweet and acid and the famous chicken parmigiana is huge fir at lease 4 people we just tried and left it almost intact, the waiter was super nice so I lied and said that we were staying in a hotel so we could not take the leftovers Honestly and I hate to give bad reviews but in my opinion this is a more expensive Olive Garden or Carrabas

    The best Italian restaurant in Miami. Had some friends visiting from Texas and definitely had to take them here. The food is amazing. We started off with a caprese salad which was light and refreshing….then came the Meatballs!!!! OMG their sauce is amazing. They really need to bottle this up. It will jump off the shelves. We decided to go healthy and get true veggie pizza. Thankfully we shared it amongst the 4 of us. So good. For dinner we ordered the lobster ravioli….again that sauce is to die for. The truffle risotto was so tasty as well. There was no more room in our stomach but….you gotta get the limoncello cake. Thankfully it’s light but sooo damn good. The best part are the owners and staff. They really go out of your way to make you feel welcome. A definite must go to place. Then walk along the Miami River to burn some calories.
