Loved it, amazing food and not overly fancy. Sat at bar and bartender gave excellent recommendations all night. Would come back o Miami just to eat here!
An old favorite. Be sure to have the on menu polenta option (currently with Duck) or the off menu request only polenta board . The pastas are made in house , excellent, and great to share several. You May be seated outside on a busy and somewhat noisy street.
The $10 pasta night on Thursdays is both the most delicious and best value in Miami!
We love this place! We come to South Beach once a year and this is the one restaurant we come back to. The tasting menu is amazing- more than enough but too delicious to pass up. If you are not going for the tasting menu, you MUST order the polenta! It’s worth the trip!
Fabulous service, very small portions for price, be careful not to be rushed, as they require that you order all dishes at once .
Amazing food and service with the exception of the front of house. Be prepared to wait 30-60 minutes past your reservation time while tables sit empty and the hostesses lie to your face about setting your table.
Pasta Thursdays a must do when in Miami
Hostess Christina was friendly and engaging. Waiter Dan was responsive and attentive, as were all staff. Food was excellent, environment was energetic and family-festive. Authentic, fresh home made Italian specialties. Highly recommend for a fun, special or everyday dining experience.
Had to wait 30 minutes for reservation - day of reservation received text saying we might have to sit outside even though original reservation from months in advance had “inside seating” in my comment request
Amazing pasta. Went on ten dollar night. Long wait to get pasta and comes as it is made so no order. Be ready to have family style. But delicious.
I have no words this place is so magically delicious 🥰
Phenomenal homemade pasta, great wine list, and friendly attentive service. Macchialina is a standout for amazing Italian. Belly up to the bar and enjoy a great meal either solo or with friends. Everything is a must try!
The tasting menu was excellent! They were very accommodating with our dietary restrictions. The veal Parmesan and the mushroom polenta really stuck out as top tier menu items but everything was absolutely delicious!
We had the tuna tartare and they specialize in Veal. We sat outside near the street on a busy Saturday night This is a very good Italian restaurant in Miami Beach
We walked in and was welcomed back. The service was great, the food was delicious and the vibe was amazing. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Amazing meal. Such great natural wines.
Basel with friends
Everything was wonderful however we felt rushed to turn over the table.
Excellent meal and service. Refreshingly high quality in every way.
Super-chill joint off the beaten SoBe track...enjoy!
The food was good, the service was excellent and we enjoyed ourselves.
Would definitely go back.
The food was amazing, the service was friendly and attentive, and the ambience was charming. Every single thing was delicious! Special thanks to our server Daniel and all the staff for making our night so special.
I’ve been numerous times and the food quality has been excellent but last night everything was sub par and mediocre. The lasagna which was ordered by three guests came out cold and had to be sent back. Meatballs were small and with too much garlic. Spaghetti pomodoro was over cooked.
We were celebrating a friend’s birthday. I told the hostess who noted it but when we ordered dessert no effort was made although it was done for other tables. Overall very disappointing.
Simple and nice restaurant , probably one of the more authentic italian restaurant in Miami. Good food and very good italian wines in a very pleasant atmosphere . Among all the price are lower than expected ( compliments). Our waiver from Minnesota was clever and very polite but I suggest the owner to have one italian waiver to dedicate more time to better explain the food and the wines ! For sure we’ll come back to Macchialina!
The host, a lady with long hair was very rude to us and we were in line to speak with her and she basically skipped us three times before i had to interject. In addition to skipping us, gave us a terrible table and i had to put my food down to get a better table.
Our server seemed over subscribed. It took a long time for her to take our order and then to get our wine (where we finished our charcuterie before our wine arrived!) At the end it seemed like she was upset about something, she slammed our check on the table and then slammed the table again to bring back the check to sign)
We’re from SF - probably some of the best italian restaurants in the country and the city happens to be among the most expensive in the country so for is to pay close to $100PPA - we expect better .
Meal and ambiance were excellent. Waitress rushed us a bit requiring our whole order when we sat down. If they slowed the pace a bit it would be 6 stars. Definitely go back hopefully with a different waitress.
We tried a variety of things and all were delicious. However, the polenta (we did ours with mushrooms instead of pork) and the short rib lasagna were knock-outs! Also, best bread pudding I've ever had! When next in Miami we will be back!
Always great. Excellent service, food is really good, we really enjoy coming in every time. Thank You! And special Thanks to waitress Martina Filipova.
Great food and excellent service.
Phenomenal! Excellent service and food. New fav spot in South Beach. Good but casual scene with an emphasis on dining. Cannot say enough about this place. Try the meatballs, tuna tartare, and bread pudding.
Dining room Slammed on a Friday evening BUT food and service did not suffer.
This restaurant is small but the service is great! It was packed, but our server made time for us. We were celebrating our 20 year anniversary and when we first arrived, the hostess wished us a Happy Anniversary.
We ordered the duck and sausage polenta to start and it was delicious! We also had the gnocco fritto and it was very tasty.
For the entree's we had the short rib lasagna- outstanding and the cavatelli was tasty too.
For dessert we ordered a chocolate and hazelnut pastry and it was very tasty.
We'd definitely recommend this place!
Was recommended by locals. Exceeded our expectations, phenomenal pasta and excellent shareable options. Will be coming back next visit.
Had a delicious birthday meal and found the quality of food amazing for the value. Great service
it continues to be the best Italian in Miami Beach
If you are looking for a small family owned restaurant with authentic Italian food, this is the place! Everything we ordered was amazing, from the wine to the burrata and the specialty pasta dish with shaved truffles- and the service was fantastic. Next time we are in Miami we will definitely be back!
Great spot with great food. Will definitely return.
Excellent service and quality of food
