JAMES BEARD AWARD WINNING CHEF MICHAEL SCHWARTZ BRINGS HONEST ITALIAN FOOD FEATURING FRESH INGREDIENTS FROM THE HEARTH AND THE SIMPLICITY OF HANDMADE ARTISANAL BREADS AND PASTA TO FI’LIA.
A meal begins with a crusty loaf, presented with olive oil and oregano snipped at the table. Rustic pizzas from the wood oven highlight beautiful produce in season in special combinations. Caesar salad is tossed tableside in a shower of shaved parmigiano from a roaming cart, with the smell of toasted garlic croutons reminding you of how satisfying and memorable the classics can be.

Cocktails are refreshingly uncomplicated – less about complex recipes and technique, and more about how unpretentiously perfect a spritz is on a July or December afternoon. A focused wine list celebrating Italian regional varietals and American wines with an old world sensibility.

Food not worth the $. Much better choices on the hotel grounds don’t waste time. My ravioli tasted like over cooked canned microwaveable. They also forgot our appetizer. Went here in May when I was here as well and it was eh figured I’d give it another shot. It’s not good.

We enjoyed two dinners at Fi’Lia while on vacation. Service was good both times and the food was as well. The table side Caesar salad and truffle pizza were standouts. The bartender was also excellent, as he made a custom nonalcoholic elixir for my husband.

I hate to complain about a meal considering there are people who suffer from famine and much harder times than having a bad meal but I will leave you with my thoughts. The pizza is the hidden gem here. The rest of our Food was tremendously salty.

We knew the food was overpriced before dining, but we at least expected higher quality food. Almost $200 for 2 people with only two alcoholic drinks and a free dessert because of a special occasion. If you aren’t planning on lowering the prices then please make better food. Rigatoni tasted like Chef Boyardee and the steak was cold. Our waiter was friendly but like all other service at this resort they don’t come by often. Please teach the “silent service” technique to all Baha Mar staff! Seems like most are complacent due to the standard 15% service charge.

Olive oil was too bitter for my taste. Meatball appetizer was tasty, but a little too salty. The extra large short rib plate is enough for two people. It was very good, but had a lot of fat. They have a terrible dessert menu, which is really disappointing for an Italia restaurant.

What a total disappointment! Party of five. Restaurant was full but not crowded. Sean was our waiter. With $220 bottle of wine bill was $780. I’m okay with spending the money for superior food and service but this place came up very short. Where to start... lobster dish was disgusting. Table side Caesar for $24 and you would have thought it would be made table side. Nope...straight from the kitchen. Filet medium well was burnt to a crisp. Pasta made in house so said the waiter....wanna bet. I was sure I saw the chef empty it out of a Barilla box.

Okay forget the food was horrible and that the chef spilled at least a pound of salt across our food making it inedible. The worst was the presentation. 5 entrees. Two come out. 15 minutes later the third. 10 minutes more entree 4. Everyone was finished when they presented the $90 lobster in a pan. Yes, the pan would have tasted better.

Let’s sum it up...went to dune by Jean George the night before....$120 less with comparable bottle of wine. Absolutely amazing with impeccable service. DO YOURSELF A HUGE FAVOR AND PASS ON FILIA. Go to dune or even McDonald’s for a much better meal and experience.

The booth in the center of the isle is ok but not for 6 large adults. Server was acceptable but not what I expected for this restaurant. Dipping oil needs seasoning, meatball was ok but should have been cooked a little longer and the beef carpaccio I would say was awful. I did not enjoy the short rib pasta dish at all but others in my party did. The chicken parmigiana was good and pizza was very good. Wine selection should be expanded.

For a Michael Schwartz restaurant Fi'Lia was surprisingly disappointing --- basically meh. If you are going, try the meatballs. Avoid the pork tonnato. Wines by the glass were decent.

The décor is lovely (the tables are a little close to eachother though). Our waiter was outstanding and all the food we ordered was delicious! We all ordered different things and then shared (after the waiter suggested it). The bartender managed to recreate a cocktail I requested. It was perfect! It is pricey but worth it. Very impressed!
