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.

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 :)

La experiencia del servicio fue horrenda . El mesero se ofendió porque le pedimos pizza y decidió dejar de atendernos.
No conocen la excelencia en el servicio.

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 !

I stopped by this place for an early dinner while visiting Miami Beach. The food was great, but the service horrible. I can’t even believe that I had to go up to the servers to ask what they had for dessert and for my check. Never have I ever been treated with such poor service. Even though the food tasted great, I have to cut down stars due to the poor service.

We have eaten at Sardinia for many years including several Thanksgiving Dinners.
This year the food came out COLD. We sent it back and several minutes later the food came back: turkey hot, some sides warm, other sides cold.
Bottom line.....not happy.

Food is consistently delicious. Waitress was friendly. Only issue was a dish with lots of broth arrived without a spoon. We asked 3 people. Finally waitress came by and said it’s really not soup so a spoon isn’t needed. Huh? She did bring a spoon. Luckily, it was still warm.

We paid $75 for a truffle risotto and got some white rice with a few flakes of truffle - a flavorless dish at an absurd price. We told the server and she seemed to want to argue rather than help. She agreed to speak with the manager -that was the last we saw or heard from her. A different server brought the check. The rest of the food was good but the truffle dish and lack of any effort to remedy the situation was unacceptable.

Easily one of the best restaurants in Miami. True Sardinian food with a fair variety of mainland Italian and Sicilian options. I haven’t had stateside Italian food this delicious since my parents’ home! Definitely go here if you’re looking for that fresh Mediterranean Italian meal !

It is so hard to see our great neighborhood restaurant so deserted and about to shut down again due to the revised orders. The service and the food were excellent as always, even though we were one of the only two tables of patrons there tonight!!!

Hoping life resumes some day and we can one day again
enjoy Sardinia as it was before these crazy times.
