Food is really, really good. Business was a little out of sink due to the new Corona rules. This is not the restaurant’s fault, but just the current state of the world. I hope that it ends soon and we can enjoy the restaurants and bars like we did before. Let’s get thru this and come out stronger and wiser without ruining our abilities to enjoy a good night out.

M'Italia never disappoints! We were so happy to get out the first day that restaurants were allowed to serve in their dining rooms! They were following protocol with social distancing of tables, extreme cleanliness, paper menus, touchless pay, and facial masks. The food was amazing. We had the meatballs, pasta Bolognese, veal parmesan. Cannot forget to have some homemade gelato for dessert! Service was impeccable and the entire staff was cheerful and happy to be back at work. Support our local restaurants, they need it!

First time dining at Mi’talia and it was a great experience. It was a beautiful night so chose to eat outside and despite the metro rail and traffic on US1 - it has a terrific vibe. Service was very attentive. Recommend everything we ate : goat cheese / honey appetizer and lobster ravioli and spaghetti and meatballs. Everything deliciously fresh and tasty!

Awesome first timer experience. Food was fresh and tasty. Scene/setting was very nicely laid out...would have been nice to of had real Italian bread and olive oil/herbs served complimentary to start the dining experience. Menu was a bit more limited than we expected but the food was very good. Definitely going back!

Stopped by here for an early dinner recently. We had a reservation but the place wasn't too full at 6 pm on a Sunday. We were seated right away with menus.
The cocktail menu was very interesting and I tried the Mr. Casanova (housemade beefeater limoncello, aperol, campari, amber vermouth) $14.00 which was excellent and akin to a Negroni.
They have a variety of small plates, a charcuterie/antipasto plate, salads, flatbreads and a selection of about 6 pastas and 4 main dishes. Nice to have a manageable menu and it is clear they stick to a limited number of items that are excellently prepared.
We decided to share a fennel citrus salad and a wild mushroom pizzetta to start with. Then onto the Bucatini Carbonara and the Mafaldi Vodka.
Portions are reasonable/European sized. Pastas were priced in the mid $20 range. Salad and Pizzetta $13-$14. Everything was well prepared and the pasta plates were preheated which was nice. Hard to taste the mushrooms in the pizzetta but still tasty. We shared a Budino ( caramel pudding with chocolate and mascaparone) dessert $10.

The noise level with soft background music was acceptable (it filled up fast). They have outdoor seating as well but we weren't sure about noise level as it is near US1 so sat inside. Parking is either on the street pay by phone or in their own parking lot ($7 valet). I look forward to returning and nice to have such a great quality Italian spot in South Miami.

Only negative was that it took at least 10-15 minutes for our server to appear (and since place was almost empty when we arrived and cocktail and food menus were not extensive, we were twiddling our thumbs for a while and thirsty!) but once he did the service was excellent and very well timed. Waters refilled regularly. Minor point - the maitre-d didn't record our arrival so we had follow up phone calls from them to cancel our reservation after 15 minutes and emails from Open Table asking us why we didn't show. We straightened it out later.

Again a wonderful dinning evening. Enjoyed meeting and talking with Jerry Flynn GM of both Root & Bone and Mi’talia. Also it was my Birthday and I was treated to any dessert but I declined.
I am bring old WDC friends there this Sunday for an early dinner.This will be their first visit and since they live here Year round they will be back. Unfortunately, we return to the eastern shore on Monday.

Keep up the good work.

Service super slow, it took an hour and half for two appetizers ( pizza and carpaccio) and two main dishes, bucatini and farro salad. The wine got to the table after the appetizers, and the waitress (the same of our last visit) she is always doing something but serving.
I received an email that "you missed me" and I thought to give you another try. Ut was a mistake, not only the service is very slow, now the food is not as good as it was when you opened. I also noticed that some of the good waiter that were there before where not present, and that the manager never came to see how things were going even though we were about 8 feet from the cashier and she kept looking at us. You lost a customer, sorry.

hostess and waiter were great. Food was good, not fantastic, but good. Sat outside and thought noise on US 1 would be bothersome, but it was not even noticeable. Only 2 beers to choose from and luckily one was a very good IPA.

The food was excellent, the bar tender made a wonderful wine suggestion.
I feel that the wine was a bit overpriced but the food was very reasonable.
As the night got busier the waitress seemed to get less attentive.
