Italian
The intimate setting inside and outside evokes the romantic old-world atmosphere of coastal Italy while embracing beautiful Miami Beach, just steps away. Come by for a glass of wine from the Gargano Peninsula or enjoy a fresh cocktail at the bar, and stay to share a fresh-from-the-garden salads and homemade linguine vongole. Follow that course with the local daily catch, and linger with an espresso as laughter and music drift around you. And don’t forget to return for our farm-to-table breakfast, freshly made cornettos will be waiting.

A favorite of ours when we visit Miami Beach. We love their breakfast buffets and especially their pasta dinners.

The service was not friendly. It took them a long time to serve us. After my notice they have even argued. Food was good, tasty, and fast served.

My family and I booked this restaurant on Open Table. We arrived a few minutes early and even though there were several open tables, they made us wait until our booked time. We did sit on a nice patio and drink orders were taken. We did not receive a menu and we asked about this when our drinks came a few minutes later. We were then told that it was a "Special Buffet" for the evening due to it being New Year's Eve. This is the FIRST TIME WE WERE TOLD ABOUT THIS. It was now 8:25 and my husband an I were there with 2 children so we decided to stay as they were hungry. When we got the bill it was $99 PER PERSON and they charged us a 20% gratuity even though it was a buffet and the only thing the waitress did was bring our drinks! It was ridiculous and we were so upset. Our final bill was more than $500 for my family of 4. To top it all off, THE FOOD WAS COLD AND OVERCOOKED. I feel we were taken advantage of 100%! I highly do not recommend this restaurant to anyone!

Very poor service and they build in a service charge and automatic 20% gratuity. No incentive for servers to provide exceptional service because of it. Shame because the food was really good.

Sauce on spaghetti tasted like Chef Boiardi canned sauce. Garlic bread had very little garlic taste and was very expensive. Drinks were excellent. Service was very good. We stayed at the hotel but would never have dinner there again.

The Pumpkin Soup of the day was delicious. Really enjoyed the ravioli and fettuccine pasta dishes. Would return again if I was in town. Cute outdoor dining set up.

Our food and service was good. Desserts which were TINY were a little on the pricey side for what you got and we were very surprised to have an automatic $50 service charge added to our bill. We only had 4 in our party, so it wasn't due to a large table. That being said, the food and service are recommendable but the $50 extra fee was never mentioned and little disappointed to see it on the bill.

Overall quite good and enjoyable, with exceptional service (particularly by Miami Beach standards). However having lived for years in Boston, New York, and Philadelphia, I've got a very high bar for Italian food, and I feel the quality here comes juuuust a bit short of the price.

Loved this. It’s almost Italian homecoming. They have outdoor seating they’ve set up which is adjacent to Collins so it’s a bit noisy but the food was fantastic and the service was excellent. Would definitely return.

The food was mediocre. The Caesar salad had so little dressing it was like eating romaine. Then the spaghetti with the chicken parmigiana was drowning in sauce. The waiter was not attentive and didn’t offer us bread or Parmesan for our pasta. And they added 20% tip to bill. Would not recommend

Ordered drinks and they came quickly. Ordered dinner and minutes later bread came and I am not kidding when minutes later our meal came. Very rushed . We were in and out within 40 min. Food was good but the rushing was disappointing. I told the waiter the food came too fast and he said - no that’s good.
