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.

Delicious Italian with some Sardinian dishes. Inventive, great ingredients and execution. Mozzarella tasting platter wonderful. Nothing over-seasoned or garliced. Attentive, helpful service. Introduced to really good Sardinian white wine.

Sardinia is always good. On Open Table you can select inside or outside tables and since we had our dogs, it was no ce to know we could be accommodated. Highly recommend starting with a cheese plate.

So, I had made reservations for outside but when we got there, there was a foul smell so happily the restaurant could accommodate us inside.
The noise level was enormous. But that seems to be the case everywhere. I guess that’s why all my 60+ years old friends go out to dinner at6!
The food was delicious. Some dishes better than others. The octopus, the sole and the rabbit where delicious. Ironically, it was the pasta dishes that were off.
The wine was very good and reasonable priced. Although there were not that many choices under $80-90.
And the best part were the desserts. We ordered 3: crema catalana, lemon sorbet, and Mille feuille. There were all 3 very well made. Although the sorbet was more of a lemon mousse but delicious.
Our waitress was very accommodating.

Consistently satisfying and unique dining experience. This is not your everyday Italian food and must be experienced to appreciate. The mozzarella platter is incredibly fresh, flavorful, and abundant; enough for an entree with or without sides. Highly recommended.

After frequenting and recommending this restaurant for years a, we returned after a long absence and I am sad to say it has really changed. The appetizers (cheese plate and eggplant parm) were good but the pastas were flavorless (the pesto sauce tasted like chalk, the sausage in another plate tasted as though the flavor was boiled out of it). In addition, the service was non-existent most of the time; our food was even brought out before they cleared the appetizers and the waiter set our food on a table for several minutes by the entrance to wait for the table to be cleared. The woman's bathroom was a tremendous turn-off as it was really littered and on the dirty side.

Food is always outstanding. Straciatelli with roasted peppers, branzino and spaghetti with clams in light broth were all superb. Great selection of wines by the glass as well.

We went on the recommendation of a friend. We parked on the street and walk two blocks to the restaurant. I am not sure if it’s all the time but there was a significant smell coming from the sewers which was unsavory. my wife and both I commented that we would not want to eat outside where they have outside seating because of the smell. that being said we ate inside. we each had wine appetizers, she had the salad with beets, I had the quial, Small plate entrées, she had a pasta special, I had the ravioli with goat cheese and basil. the food was excellent, the ambiance is excellent, but the service was slightly slow at times. We are going to try the one in delray beach as well. Not typical Italian food. Different and good, more Mediterranean.

This used to be our go to Italian. Sat outside on a not busy Monday. Drinks took 15 minutes to arrive. Appetizers: minestrone was Luke warm. Salad was very good. Entrees were brought by a server who never returned with the cheese and black pepper that was requested. The veal with mushrooms and pasta with sausage and rabe pesto were barely warm. Didn’t see a server for about 15 minutes. Told her food was cold and never got cheese and pepper. She offered to get cheese but no comment on cold food. Told manager (Rodrigo) who never apologized, but the waitress offered to buy us coffee and dessert. Just wanted to leave. There are a lot of much better options for Italian food in Miami. How can a place stay in business with a hostile manager?

Eggplant parm appetizer was just oily and tasteless. Not what we expected. The Bronzino Baked in salt was the high point as well as the Fried goat cheese with honey dessert. Lack of attention to detail though was annoying and distracting. Missed that we had OpenTable res and I had to call and remind them to fix it. They advertise a “Happy Hours” wine pricing and were told at the time the check arrived that it was only “at the bar” even though it was clearly on our table menu. The devil is In the details. We have had excellent to mediocre experiences over our visits.
