I've visited LoveItaly several times. Each time, the food is on pointe and delicious. I've had a different dish, usually the special, each time I've been there. I'm always happy with the delicious selection provided.
Also, the service is beyond what you might experience in much higher - priced venues. Service is warm, friendly, informative, patient, and timely.
Thanks, LoveItaly for providing outstanding dining in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere.

It’s always a most satisfying experience when dining here. The food can’t be beat and the choices you have picking a bottle of wine- mesmerizing.

The Sardinian food, the service, the wine (selection), the jazz all contributed to a wonderful experience that should not be missed. The food and wine menu is very affordable.

Beautiful clean design of this restaurant is very inviting. They have great selection of Italian wines - we enjoyed super Tuscan blend. The food is outstanding and all pasta is handmade at the restaurant. Delicious! We will be back soon - can’t wait!

This restaurant was very different. It’s quite tight so it makes it cozy once it’s filled. The server was extremely nice and patient with us as we had two kids. The portion was a tad small but it tasted amazing. We also had seniors with us so they found it a little dark but we really enjoyed the live music that was playing in a dimly lit area. Overall very good and would definitely come back if and when we visit Miami again!

This is Italian with a strong Sardinian influence, so it's not your typical Miami pizza and spaghetti bolognese joint. The decor is contemporary. Everyone here is very friendly and eager to please. The wine list is not extensive, but quite adequate and reasonably priced. Terrific short rib stuffed ravioli with a mushroom parma sauce. We took foodie friends who said they will return. It's not expensive. The portions are not huge, but the quality is clearly their priority. Business Casual attire. They have live music Fri, Sat and Sun I believe. Pianist, singer, sax when we were there. Very pleasant addition. This was our 3rd visit in a year and they remembered us, which is nice.

In a strip mall, their sign is quite hard to read at night. I had some difficulty booking my reservation as they have changed their name just slightly from I Love Eataly to Lovitaly. No complaints.

We were so pleasantly surprised by our amazing meal that the only decision we are left with is whether it is appropriate to return for lunch and dinner tomorrow (too bad tomorrow is a Monday)!

We read only stellar reviews of this restaurant and that, along with our proximity to the restaurant drove our choice. We arrived an hour before the kitchen was to close and found the restaurant in a strip mall and deserted. My heart sank. First thing you need to realize is that this is Florida and not Manhattan and neighborhood gems will be situated anywhere including strip malls. The remarkable reviews drove us indoors to investigate further and we found wait staff were friendly, patient, informative and authentically informed about Italian cooking and wines. The two other diners I was with have a much broader palate than mine and ordered and raved about every dish served, how it came to the table. No one left anything left over. My tuna and vegetables was quite good ...just what I wanted- grilled and simple. The Pumpkin ravioli my diners flipped over...during our time there the place slowly grew in attendance but we were never rushed, felt very at home and had a great meal. To add to that, the value of the dinner with wine would have cost double that in Manhattan. Grazie Mile....

Good wine list. Salmon carpaccio had interesting Dijon flavor but was very thick. Not a carpaccio. Green salad was basic chopped lettuce, flavorless. Tuna was ok. Same dish for two different people presented differently??? Lamb was ordered medium, came rare. Sent back and they threw it back on the grill/stove and it came back as flavorless shoe leather.
Maybe their forte is pizza and pasta. They need to step up their game to last.

North Miami neighborhood gem. Traditional Italian food and great wine selection. The chef worked at a Michelin rated restaurant in Italy and it shows. The homemade pastas and gnocchi are perfect and the sauces flavorful. The pizzas are the closest you'll find to Naples around here. Try it and you'll be joining them when you crave Italian regularly.
