We are from Palm Beach county my son lives in the area, So we went to look for a good local restaurant that we could enjoy. The food was great. The server were nice by they need a little more training on the wine list. We had a special cheese cake for desert that was just amazing. I would definitely come back here if the opportunity presented itself

I’m not even a big fan of Italian food. Probably because I have not been able to find delicious Italian until now. And, not only is the food spectacular, they make you feel like part of a family the moment you walk in, whether or not you’re a regular. It’s an amazing culinary experience from beginning to end!

Food and service were top notch... definitely a hidden gem. We enjoyed the specials, especially the salad with figs and Gorgonzola and prosciutto. It was amazing... I had the filet in a wine sauce with a side of Parmesan risotto, cooked to perfection! Overall, this was such a special surprise. Can’t wait to go back!

Don’t judge a book by its cover ! An unassuming place in a strip mall turned into a wonderful dining experience. Service was attentive and accommodating. Food was fabulous- excellent buffalo mozzarella appetizer with great fried calamari. Entrees in our party was chicken parm (delicious !) which came with a side of linguine with oil and garlic. Branzino- very light and delicate. A risotto custom-prepared with shrimp. Prices are more than reasonable. A BIG BONUS was you could have a conversation since the noise level was low ! Loved this place- will be back !!!

We came across this restaurant on Open Table. The reviews droves us to go there. Brought another couple. Everything was exceptional. Had a Dorada fish special that was simply seasoned and grilled and tasted great. Salad with house dressing was perfect. And a bit of desert to celebrate a birthday which was comped. Just go see for yourself.

This was our second visit with friends. The first time 4 of the 6 of us loved their meal with 2 rating it as ok. This visit 4 of 7 thought their meals were good-very good with 3 funding the entree to be less than expected. For example, my pasta dish seemed to be over cooked. Given the inconsistent quality, we can only score the food as 3 stars.

Service here is very good and the setting is simple but attractive. The noise level is very low, making it excellent for conversing with your dining partners.

I will give a 4 star overall to the restaurant, the lower rating on service is that we felt they wanted us to leave fast, the busboy came to take the salad and the dessert and we had not finished, you can not feel pushed out.

We were intrigued by the great reviews we saw and decided to try Red Carpet Restaurant. The service was excellent from the moment we arrived. They greeted us with a smile and warm welcome as if we had dined there before. The attention was top notch from the beginning to the end. The owner is there to great everyone and work side-by-side with his staff. That alone is to be commented and that is why the business is so great! He is professional, hospitable, and lively.

As for the food, everything we ordered was delicious! I can’t say enough, we were very impressed. While the restaurant is located in a small strip shopping mall, do not let that fool you, this is one of the “hidden gems” in our community.

It is very difficult to find restaurants in Miami that are as friendly, courteous and professional as this. The staff actually smiled and were very inviting.

Side note to other restaurants in the Miami area, you could surely take some lessons from the Red Carpet Restaurant.

Bravo!!

Food and service were excellent. Came here for the first time last year and it’s become one of my favorite restaurants to go to. I live near Manhattan, we’re there known for their great Italian food. This place is just as good as New York’s il Mulino or Rao’s. If you’re in the area or just looking for some good Italian cuisine definitely give this place a try.

We love eating at Red Carpet, it’s like having a meal at your families home. Jorge and Alfredo and the entire staff welcome you like you belong to their family everytime you come to their restaurant. The food is always delicious, try the corvina, chicken parmaggiana, and the ravioli are always good choices. You cannot go wrong with anything on their nenu.

Súper nice!

Just like a home cooked meal! Great taste and ingredients even though a bit limited for an Italian menu. Need more Italian entres.

Also, I don’t know why any restaurant would offer Fillet Mignon or Lobster as a special? There’s nothing special about that...just a more expensive choice . I’d rather they offered a daily Italian special. That would make the restaurant awesome!

It’s pretty good now....but could be great!

Exceptional excellence! Warmly greeted by owner Alfredo we settled in for a relaxing meal. Alfredo’s recommendation of a Prosecco, Corta all’s Flora was the perfect pairing for our meal. Salmon, Veal, Carpaccio all delicious and the included salad and Carrot soup were fresh and nicely presented. Mike and Alfredo were attentive in their service.
I’ve been supporting this family owned restaurant since they opened and given the “fickle” city Miami can be, it’s great to see a restaurant survive on good food and customer service in a non descriptive location off the beaten path. Enjoy!
