Pasta was ok mine was under cooked and cold I think the place lacks on options including cocktail menu! And it’s overpriced and overhipped !!!

Excellent find north of downtown Miami - beautiful courtyard setting on a comfortable lateJune evening - the interior looked equally well designed. The service was friendly and attentive. The house special Cacio e Pepe pasta in a cheese wheel was outstanding as was the tuna tartar appetizer.

Very good experience!
To improve, the waiting area. We have been proposed to wait outside while it was raining, my girlfriend would have got her hair wet if I would listen to the host.

Very good restaurant and delicious Italian food.
Our table was outside in the garden area that is lovely.
I’m not sure I would eat inside for the high noise.
The host was slightly unpleasant and we had to wait almost half an hour at 9pm. The waiter was good.

The situation with parking in their tiny lot is terrible. We got stuck behind five cars and had to wait quite a while before getting our car. Do not park in their lot.

My fifth visit in two months and , as usual, my two guests and I were well taken care of in the beautiful garden. Wonderful pastas served as appetizers and a magnificent three pound Bronzino elegantly served as a main course. Truly extraordinary!
