One of the most authentic and exciting restaurants to open in Miami Beach in ages, this ultra-friendly restaurant has made fast friends of the neighborhood around Sunset Harbor. The young staff is exceptionally knowledgeable and helpful. Highlights on the lengthy menu of rustic dishes include spaghetti bottarga, orecchiette with wild boar sausage and nearly melted broccoli di rabe pesto. Salt-crusted branzino, prepared in the wood-burning oven, is a masterpiece. The fantastic, value-priced wine list is always a winner. Best to go with a crowd and share a platter of thinly sliced meats and cheeses with vegetables roasted in the wood-burning oven. Order a plate of crackly rosemary carasatu bread, too. Desserts, like the millefoglie with nutella and pastry cream, are as addictive as this new hot spot.

We had Valentine’s Day lunch reservations for the tasting menu experience. When we arrived the host told us that menu was unavailable today . I was Mildly disappointed . However their regular menu did not disappoint. The scallops were excellent.

We love Sardinia. Different Italian cuisine, with a wonderful menu from the island of Sardinia. Authentic menu. Very friendly helpful waitstaff, and nice wine list. Optional seating outside early afternoon, just perfect for a 3 hour lunch with friends. I recommend. Living in Sunset Harbour, it is always a welcomed place to meet friends and have an exceptional meal.

Sardinia is always a good choice in Miami Beach, they could improve a little on hiring their waiters, some don’t know what is going on, but otherwise it is very good!

The hostess was very accommodating to get us a table on the patio.
We normally order the steak and have it sliced. We tried the veal Milanese. Will do the steak the next visit. Didn’t like the coating on the veal. But it was tasty. Just not our favorite.

Really very, very average. Have no idea why this place is so busy. Have not visited for 3 years after very average food and service and my visit today confirmed my three year hiatus will now be a permanent one.

Food is dreadful. Tasteless and average. Cocktails were awful. They don’t charge miami prices but equally not Macdonald’s prices either.

Maybe go for there for their 4-7 happy hour for reduced drinks prices but avoid this place unless you want a very mediocre food and service experience.

Server took appetizer order and only took one main order before leaving the table and my partner without his food order. Had to flag down server. The great old trick of runners not being paid or empowered to take orders means people clearing your plates or deliver food scarper when asked for service as assume restaurant gives them no portion of the tip you are mandated to pay in the USA as very few service organizations pays their people properly and leave it to customer subsidise poor wages.

Overall verdict: Poor cocktail. Random to poor service. Tasteless food. Surprisingly busy. I won’t ever be returning.

Awesome restaurant:
What can I say. We've been going to Sardinia for more than 15 years and the food continues to be excellent and the service impeccable. We were introduced to Sardinia by an Italian friend who always ordered the Bucatini Amatriciana as a starter and the bisteca (sliced). But everything is excellent. We had that with a very nice Barbaresco and that was perfect!

Sardinia is one of my local favourites, we called in as We were 45 mins late and Antonio still accommodated us even though they were fully booked and extremely busy. Service is exceptional, lamb shank was very well made and tasty. Socially distanced tables, and the restaurant takes customer safety very seriously :)

A nearby table was so loud (six people) that we couldn't hear one another speak. Our server got so busy that we sat with empty drink glasses for almost 15 minutes despite plenty of other servers who were not busy but didn't offer to assist.

The dinner started with a long wait since we asked for seating at another table but we were not assigned a new waiter... Once this was fixed, dinner has been great from start to end. Salumeria were great, Paella di mare was great, Lamb Shank was gorgeous...
Just an advice: avoid the bench seatings if you're less than 6'5" because they're so low that you feel very uncomfortable !
