Italian
The intimate setting inside Cadillac Hotel & Beach Club 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, 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 brunch, freshly made cornettos will be waiting.

Service was excellent. Great location. Had the Calamari and Spaghetti. Not bad but the sauce and breading was bland.

Outstanding Italian and homemade pastas. Linguini and clams beat in 10 miles homemade Cesar so fresh you want two. Excellent cocktail list. Great service.

Amazing! We found this gem on vacation and loved it. From the atmosphere to the service, drinks, food....wow! I had lasagna and my husband had pasta bolognese. Both were fabulous. We also enjoyed a watermelon mule and a strawberry mojito that were amazing. But the creme Brule with Baileys was out of this world! We would definitely go back if in MB again.

The ambiance was great for Sunday afternoon. The music playing outside went with the setting. The service was great. The pasta was delicious even though my husband’s fettuccine was salty, but over all it’s was great.

I went today after they re opened and let me tell you ..... OMG
The food was above and beyond but most of all ..... THE SERVICE. Wow Wow Wow
It was quiet ( well they just opened and it’s expected ) but my server / manager / bartender went above and beyond . Never have I ever had experience that I had today . Helena went above and beyond for us . She knew exactly what we wanted , she suggested exactly what we were in a mood for and she is our favorite person in Miami .
If you want to have a good homemade pasta and want the best service in Miami , Donna MAre is the place .
Will be back next week for a family get together

My wife and I recently celebrated our annivesary at Donna Mare and we were so impressed with our overall experience that we decided to return for dinner last night. The level of service and beautifully plated dishes is overwhelming.
We were greeted at the door like life long friends by the hostess. We were sat promptly although they were quite busy. Our waitress (Alsa) was very friendly and attentive. She recommended the Lobster Fettuccine which came with a whole lobster perfectly cooked and the Filet mignon which was tender and mouth watering. Elena (The manager) remembered us from our first visit and warmly welcomed us back. She personally brought to our table the creamiest creme brulee we've ever had. An unexpected detail that took our dining experience to a whole new level.
We are already looking forward to our next date night. Donna Mare is EXCELLENCE in every aspect!

Well I came again for dinner tonight. They opened at 6 pm but the restaurant was full by 7 pm . We took a comfy booth and again .... wow wow wow . From the hostess who greeted us so warmly to the service and management .. everybody is so attentive it’s just so unusual .
Manger Eliana greeted us and suggested the special Pinot Noir they had , we tried it and ordered a bottle afterwards . It’s the management at is best . She knows what’s hospitality business is about .
We had eggplant parmigiana and Burrata , and then shared 22 oz ribeye which was cooked led rare , it was perfect
We stayed longer to enjoy their live music on weekends and really felt like at home .
It’s my favorite spot in Miami now . I recommend this place !!!!
Great job , Donna Mare

Went here for the first time . Staying at the Palms hotel for a week .
Was surprised by a friendly and exceptional stuff.

Was greeted by a very friendly hostesses who asked me if I would like to seat at the table or bar . I chose the bar .

Galina was my server / bartender. I felt like I was home.
I ordered spicy Jalisco ( special drink ) it was so delicious.

Had carpaccio for an appetizer and then had their homemade lasagna , it came out sizzling hot, smelling delicious. The manger herself brought the food. Introduced herself and asked if i would like fresh shaved parmigiana, wow , what a touch . She came by a few times after to make sure I was enjoying my dinner . And I sure did .
I finished my night with a limoncello and key lime pie .

As I was leaving, all the servers , I kid you not , everybody wished me a good night .
Wow , what a nice surprise.
So friendly , inviting and warm .
I fell in love with this place .
Coming back Wednesday night to bring my wife here.

My wife and I went to Donna Mare to celebrate our anniversary and we couldn't have been happier. We felt at home and very welcomed from the moment we walked in. The host greeted us with a smile and walked us to our table within minutes. Our server (Martin) was very knowledgeable, attentive, and friendly. He recommended the Branzino which was cooked to perfection and the Fettucine Alfredo which was creamy and flavorful. We had the manager Elena stop at our table several times making sure that we were enjoying ourselves. Our overall experience was beyond excellent. We plan on making Donna Mare our destination for all future celebrations. Overall EXCEPTIONAL food and service.

Has a nice feel to the place. Food was good but service was poor.
How does the waiter not come back after food is delivered to see if we need anything? Three pasta plates and no check in to see if we need cheese? Another drink? Guess when you have a 20% gratuity included you don’t have to work for it. I wouldn’t go back.

Considering the restaurant is right on the strip inside the Cadillac Hotel it is moderately priced. The homemade pastas were excellent! The service was also above average. The only downsides were that the pasta was a little bit drowned in the sauce and there was no coffee available at dessert (which was pretty odd).

Very ooor dining experience. Waiter was not knowledgeable. 3 out of 4 appetizers were brought to the table at the same time. We had to wait over 5 minutes for the 4th app to be delivered. Some mains were not prepared as ordered. Food mediocre at best. Just a waste of time. Don’t bother.

It took 2 1/2 hrs for two of us to get our food even as families around us who were seated after us got their food. I enjoyed the caesar salad which came out timely but the salmon livornese took much too long was very untasty and not warm. The Tomato sauce was bland. The whole dish was bland. I only ate a few bites. My companion had a simple pasta with marinara which she did not eat. Our waiter was very unattentive and did not bring the lemoncello that I had ordered at the end of the meal and could not bring coffee because they had run out and “it would take 20 mins. to grind and brew more.” When we got the check a gratuity had already been added (for a party of 2!) which I didnt think our waiter deserved. I paid it anyway but will not be back.

Absolutely delicious food, lovely ambiance, and wonderful service. The large Caesar salad (ample for two), linguine with clams, and tagliatelle Bolognese were perfectly prepared and a delight to eat. The fresh pasta could not have been better, and both pasta dishes were served piping hot. The noise level was low, despite the absence of carpeting, but the place was not full the night we were there. The house wines were good and not expensive. We truly enjoyed our dinner.
