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.

    We got the name from my friend’s daughter , as a great restaurant and it certainly was! Unfortunately we wanted to try everything so we ordered the arugula pizza and meatballs for appetizers. Everything was delicious. I’m a meatball snob and their meatballs were great and pizza , the best.The owner as well as the staff were so delightful. Always smiling , and thankful . Can’t say enough about the great service.

    We were there last night ate outside. However, the tables are backed up to a busy street and the sounds of traffic filled the air. The food and service were outstanding. We had the grilled octopus and vegan pizza as starters. Our entrees were the Eggplant parmesan and Veal Parmesan. The portions were large enough for 2-3 people. The food was superb. We highly recommend and will return.

    Excellent place. Portions can and should be shared as are really big. Ir was a pity for us throwing away a lot of pasta because it was too much for both of us. The mozzarella, the calamari, the chicken parm and the veal milanese really exccellent.

    The portions are enormous. Our waiter warned us, and we should have listened. One chicken parmesan can feed two very hungry people and three and maybe even four people who also share a salad and an appetizer. After all the hype and press on the chicken parmesan leading up to our visit, I was expecting a "wow" on the meal. Instead, I would give the food a "B." Even so, while there are better Italian restaurants in Miami, the portion size alone makes Crust a great value. Please note that the bar is wine and beer alone. No spirits.

    Our third meal in as many weeks. This time we both went for the pizza and we can see why they are so highly rated. Next time, though, we will share one as neither of us were able to eat even half of the "personal" pizzas we ordered. They do give you a lot of food here!!

    Another great meal at Crust. I had the lobster ravioli and it was delicious. My wife had risotto with chicken. She said it was outstanding. Dessert this time was zeppoli nutella, one of the best desserts we have had in a long time (and there was plenty to bring home for the next night). The only thing that matched this amazing meal was the hospitality and vivaciousness of our host Anita. She greats every patron both when they arrive and at the end of the meal. Such a lovely lady to accompany such a phenomenal dinner.

    Amazing from start to finish. I personally love well-run small restaurants–not chains. They deserve our business. The flavor was every bit as good as Italy’s best. A few things to keep in mind: the portions are quite large, and give yourself some extra time, on your first trip, to get acquainted and find the valet parking.

    Hostess was amazing as well as the food. Started with mussels for the app, then move on to the chicken parm ( amazing) and grilled octopus (amazing) and ended with the 10 year old port (amazing) ! My only complaint was our server seemed more interested in the kids cooking show on the Tv then paying attention to her customers. Had to flag her down in 4 separate occasions to get service. But over all a great experience and great food!!

    I had read that Crust served the best chicken parm so we had to try it. No exaggeration, my wife and I agree that it was incredible. I had the veal parm and it was just as amazing. Huge portions, we had enough for lunch the next day. They also serve the most delicious garlic rolls (order six and bring some home) and the cannolis were to die for. Service was excellent and they even serve mocktails for those of us who don't drink alcohol. My only complaint is the lack of parking (and the valet first brought us someone else's car!!) but it would be worth walking here if we had to. We can't wait to come back again and try the other items on the very extensive menu. We highly recommend this restaurant!!
