Best Italian food I have ever had! I am all the way from the West Coast and after this, I don’t think anything will compare. We went back two nights in a row. The food was beyond words amazing and the service was just outstanding! We will be back again!!
The review are lying! Don’t waste your time or money!!!!
The food was very good. But our plates came out at very different times. My wife had to wait for over 15 min after I received mine. Gave us a free glass of wine but overall a key misstep.
I visited the restaurant to celebrate my birthday and honestly, it was the best decision ever. I felt like family, the owner will and the staff member gave you 100000% amazing service. They will always be made sure that we were ok. The food was amazing. I will be back.
One of the most entertaining Italian restaurants I’ve ever been to. If you want to have a great time, this is the place to go. It is also a great place to people watch. All the pasta dishes are amazing and the staff are super fun.
Great service! Best we had in Miami, even compared to experience hotel restaurants. The owner was friendly & fun, but his staff were incredibly attentive. Food was fantastic! Loud & lively, with plenty of people watching.
Good food, but it was slightly underwhelming. We had been attracted by the very positive reviews we read on TripAdvisor, Google Maps and other apps. However, the actual experience did not live up to the hype. The food was quite decent, and especially the tiramisu was outstanding, but we had better italian food in Miami Beach before. Also the service, while extremely friendly and entertaining (you should definitely order a plate with tableside presentation), was not very efficient. For example, we ordered a bruschetta with prosciutto, but the prosciutto arrived 10-15 minutes after the bruschetta, which kind of defeated the purpose of ordering them together. Same was true for when we ordered a coffee with our dessert (the coffee was already cold by the time the tiramisu was ready). In conclusion, it is a good, but not extraordinary, restaurant
This is the best Italian restaurant in south florida. From the moment we walked in we were greeted with smiles. Hector was our server and he was extremely attentive as well as Simon .
I celebrated my birthday on the patio. All employees respectful to the covid restrictions. The manager continuously checked on us as well as a greeting and check in from the chef.
Hurry hurry yo this restaurant because this secret phenomenon is about to blow up in south beach.
We had the following dishes and they come highly recommended
Octopus, Fritto Misto
cacio a pepe , osso bucco ravioli
I used to live in Italy and never ate pasta this good.
The restaurant is run and owned by Italians from Napoli.. as a chef Z would not go anywhere else for Italian food in South Beach.
I saw one bad review for this place and the man must out of his mind not to have enjoyed their food.
I’m so happy i found this place and you won’t be disappointed!
Saturday night dinner date ...So the reviews on trip advisor are beyond amazing and same for Google... Now let's get to reality. Service was excellent. Staff really work hard and care . Food was very good. Above average for sure and fresh and tasty. Here's the story... You're on Collins and 11th street which nowadays is like where all the trashy people hang out. .. the establishment is fine, just the area is with mostly classless dressed people and hoodlum looking men and women walking down the streets, boobs hanging out and men with wife beater shirts you get the idea ..and eating at the restaurant with blasting music in cars, super revving car engines, and let's just say it's not your place for a quieter night... As for whether we would go back.. sorry to say we just don't want to deal with that element when we don't have to... It's makes you feel uncomfortable especially in the environment with all the riots.
The food was excellent. Especially the Osso Buco Ravioli.
The service was great, too.
The restaurant has a lot of outdoor seating, but there is a sidewalk that runs through the middle of it. So there is some street noise.
Good food, very fresh seafood. The staff is very accommodating and nice, a little too talkative but eager and nice. Kinda cheesy with all the silk flowers and fake ivy & grapes, but campy in a fun way.
Loved the people & the food.
Will happily come back.
The food was very good. All four of us enjoyed our meal. The drinks are way over priced (3 vodka mixed drinks $75) restaurant has a cute patio area which is where we sat. Do need more fans. Overall we really enjoyed our meals and time there. I got the gnocchi with bologna’s sauce. So yummy. My husband wanted the meatball appetizer, but instead he got spaghetti and meatballs ha. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
