An authentic pearl of culinary ! It’s not your average Italian restaurant.
Outstanding experience! Great food and great service!
I was initially a bit worried about this experience because of some of the negative comments I read regarding the service, but it turned out that my worries were simply just worries! The staff were very welcoming and kind upon our arrival and remained attentive throughout our visit. The food was outstanding— the pasta was perfectly al dente. It was the best pasta I’ve had outside of Italy:) The pistachio gelato was great although I personally think that it was a bit too sweet and could have more nutty flavor to it. Terrific place, will be back!
Great ambiance. Great service with very friendly staff. Wonderful presentation and good food. Would recommend it and will go back.
This place has almost 5 stars and I think that is a mistake. The portions are tiny, the appetizer was virtually tasteless and the menu was limited. People were allowed to smoke outside while everyone was eating around them. I found this not only gross but very offensive. The meal redeemed itself with very tasty main dishes of pasta and chicken and the gelato was excellent. Overall it was not worth the time or money to get here and was a disappointing restaurant that I would not return to.
Went here because it was recommended on Eater. There was no scene on a Saturday night and a lot of over charging for items. Service was good but negated by other factors.
It’s an elegant restaurant which caters to high end clientele. This offers a very good experience pleasing Miami’s discerning diners. It is arguably overpriced.
Best food in Miami
Great design, lighting, service, food and wine! Recommended.
Forte Dei Marmi is the most gracious of dining environments. The ambience is so elegant and I feel as if I am in Italy when I dine there. The service is outstanding. I feel so special when I dine there.
I highly recommend for a special evening out.
Provate questo ristorante a Miami
Cibo molto buono personale simpaticissimo!!!!!!
Se devo essere sincero il miglior ristorante italiano che ho provato!!!
Prezzi alti in linea con gli altri locali di livello di Miami
Amazing restaurant and excellent food and service, very Italian and romantic ambiance !
It was hard to understand the servers because they were from Italy and didn’t speak English well which caused some confusion on ordering.
The service charge was unexpected..
Pasta was served little bit cold or under cooked. Everything else was great
Restaurant is amazing. Highly recommended. Service and food are experience to try absolutely.
This was my first dinning experience with Forte dei Marni and I was not disappointed. Anything and everything was excellent. Our server, Benoit C. was very personable, charming and knowledgeable of the menu. He made excellent recommendations. Definitely will come back.
Great everything but the drinks were too expensive
Great experience from start to finish. Dishes are well presented and with superb fresh quality. Server Erminio was very knowledgeable. Andrea the manager takes care of every detail. Amazing atmosphere for families, dates and friends. Grazie Mille!
Beautiful setting. Great service and excellent sophisticated food. Our fourth visit this season and quality consistent
They didn’t have the Sunday Brunch as advertised on their website and their food wasn’t good enough to be priced that high. Very underwhelming dining experience for the price. Will not return unless maybe for a free dinner
Great service and the most delicious pistacho gelato
This by far was the biggest disappointment of our trip. After living in Italy I am very hesitant to go to Italian restaurants in the US. I thought in Miami we might have better luck! The food was average and over priced. The wait staff was pushy and impatient. The sommelier was clearly not qualified. Never again!
The service is very attentive however the food isn’t as good as I was expecting. The interiors are very well designed but need a little renovation as most finishes show a lot of damage.
Service was horrible waiter was completely inattentive
Kept walking by & ignoring us & it was to expensive for such bad service
I will never go there again or recommend to my friends
I would expect a restaurant like this to have perfect pasta. No such luck. On the bright side, the pistachio ice cream is worth a trip.
Second visit. Not as nice as last year. Fish and vegetables both overdone. First course was good
It was my third time at this place, previously, I would give them 5*. Living nearby, I had a 6 people group with out of town guests and decided going there. The good: nice tranquil spot with the freshest seafood in Miami. The (really) bad: a very pushy waiter, who pushed a $400 fish ( monkfish) without disclosing the price, added on the bill several non requested vegetable sides (~25.00 each...) that he told were included in the main dish... that waiter invited one of the outsiders from our group to see their fresh seafood, that person returned saying we would not need to pick a main dish... I am used to $1000 + restaurant checks but it felt like we were played and taken.
My new favorite spot! Not only is the ambiance and decor stunning the staff and food was spectacular! Can’t wait to be back! :)
Service was amazing as well as delicious food. We love coming here whenever we visit South Beach!
Portions were small, service and food good. Way overpriced!
Love this place. Our waiter was a hoot. Love that all are Italian. Amazing “acqua pazza” branzino aand the best pistachio ice cream in the world.
We have never been this rushed by a waiter. The food is good but extremely small portion of fish for the pricing. The bathroom is just terrible- looks like a dive bar bathroom
Beautiful Valentine's day meal...great food and service as usual. A winner for SoBe.
I have been to this restaurant several times and find it to have one fatal flaw - it is aggressively overpriced. Other than that, the experience is quite nice. The service was good and the food was prepared well. We ate outside and the tables were well spaced. It would probably be better to eat before you come because the portions are small.
The homemade pistachio gelato was outstanding!!
One of my absolute favorite restaurants in FL!
The service and the food were fantastic. It’s one of the best restaurants I’ve eaten at.
We had a spectacular table in the front by the pretty landscaped shrubs and lighting. It was gorgeous in the evening. I had the tuna tartare and branzino and my husband had the artichoke salad and prawns special. We also had the pistachio gelato for dessert which was exceptional. I really enjoyed my dinner and the flavors were great, not overpriced. My husband felt the artichoke salad was bland and not too tasty, it seemed like they forgot the seasoning when I had a taste. The prawns were a special for $45 and were 6 rather small prawns (heads on) and not too tasty. He felt it was overpriced. I enjoyed the night. With an $80 bottle of wine it was a $400 meal.
