outstanding food, great service, a fantastic evening!
it is a very nice restaurant with good food. The server was not very happy that we were ordering from the Miami Spice menu. That was the impression he gave
One of the best Miami Spice menus I've tried this year! The polenta and the branzino were superb, the spaghetti was amazing, and the waiter's wine recommendation was spot on. Try to get one of the corner tables, which allow both guests to sit side by side and enjoy the view...
I live only a few miles from Scarpetta and can't believe it has taken me until now to eat here. . . My wife and I went here for the Miami Spice special, and really enjoyed the delicious food, wine and service. No complaints.
My wife and I have visited Miami the past three years on vacation and each year we have gone to Scarpetta. Before dinner I asked my wife why do I pick Scarpetta every year as we like to try new places. After dinner I then remember. It is just that good. Service, food, scene, all outstanding. I will probably be back next year asking the same question.
This was our second time and just as fantastic as the first! Everything was just great. The food and menu, the service and the atmosphere. They know what they are doing. Keep it up.
Great!! Had the Creamy Polenta for appetizer-one of the best dishes ever. The Anglottini(short rib pasta) amazing as well. It was a Friday night, the restaurant was filled to capacity-great. Great date night.
We went to Scarpetta for my Mom's birthday. Everything from the place, food, service was over the top! Really enjoyed it!!
Best spaghetti in the USA!
And that was just the starter.
Every item prepared to perfection.
We saved this experience for our last night in Miami and were both glad and sad that we did. Sad only in that we would have gone twice! The service and ambiance were among the best I have ever experienced, and my husband and I seek out the finest restaurants when we travel as our trip highlight and hobby. As far as the food, the bread basket and accompaniments alone are worth the trip. The variety and generous portion could easily fill you before you even begin your dinner. In addition, more than any other place we have ever been, the server made impeccable suggestions and offerred "share" portions to experience the most of the menu...much appreciated. The chocolate dessert was by far the best I have ever had.
Impeccable service and amazing food. Go with the tasting menu and don't look back. Only complaint is it is VERY loud. I dined alone but it would have been tough to hear conversation if I was with others. I struggled to hear the waiter.
Very nice, excellent food, a bit pricey as expected.
I have been in this place in several occasions, the food and the service is consistently good.
I had been to the Scarpetta in Toronto last year. Since I was planning my friend's birthday trip to Miami, I thought it would be nice to try the Scarpetta in Miami. I made our reservation 2 months a head of time and I made note in my reservation that we were coming for my friend's birthday. When we got to the restaurant we had to wait over 30 minutes for a table and after 20 minutes we were offered a table in the lounge. I found the customer service extremely lacking at this restaurant. Our waiter, Carlos seemed disinterested in us as customers and in his job. I had raved about this restaurant to my friends and I was sadly dissappointed in the service and embarrased in my recommedation. It definitely put a damper on our evening.
We did the Chef's 5 course tasting menu. We opted for the recommendation of the sommelier for an excellent super Tuscan over the wine pairing option. The waiter was personable and super attentive. Each course was a journey to taste heaven.
Lots of mirrored surfaces, trendy lighting and flashy people. This is not a quiet, sedate place for dinner. But that's Miami Beach for you. The only negative was the couple showing up with a very young toddler at the next table. The child wasn't as big an issue as the parents who were constantly swapping seats, getting up to walk around with the child, passing him back and forth, etc. Restaurants should work out a method to deal with this issue instead of allowing parents to impact other patrons dinner.
Polenta mushrooms are delicious!
Excellent food and service. Miami Spice outstanding.
Giancarlo was our server and he was outstanding! His knowledge about the menu and where each wine originated was above and beyond what we expected. Every server made our experience pleasant however, Giancarlo was the shining star of the evening. The food was delicious and the presentation beautiful. We had favorites in every course and Giancarlo made a point to listen to what we craved and make it a part of our eating experience: we chose to do the four course Miami Spice Pre-Fixe Menu, where the chef decided each course for us, however, Giancarlo knew we were celebrating my friend's birthday and that we both loved chocolate, so he made a point that one of the desserts was a decadent chocolate soufflé. It was beyond heavenly and rich!
My husband and I had a wonderful anniversary dinner on Sunday, 9/2. We both ordered from the Miami Spice menu, after having drinks at the bar. Panzanella, branzino and short rib agnolotti were delicious. Chocolate and banana desserts were perfect! Service was attentive, but unobtrusive. The restaurant filled up, but it didn't feel crowded.
Even with the price-fixed menu, Scarpetta is expensive, but well worth it for a special meal.
The food, service and atmosphere were all outstanding. The mixed drinks and wine list here were great quality, but quite pricey, so be prepare to spend a considerable amount of money if you want more than one alcohlic drink. I will definitely be back.
Another great meal at Scarpetta and one of the best Miami Spice deals going. Excellent and attentive service, great food (best pasta and seafood dishes I have had in a while) and solid drinks.
Charming and attentive service, sublime food, and a view of the ocean that was spectacular! It is a MUST!!!
server was a little too encompassing. the food presentation was great but over-priced for the quantity. we went to The Delano's "Bianca" the next night, same price but a larger portion for the entree.
We had guests for dinner at Scarpetta and even with several appetizers, entrees and desserts, I believe everyone went home hungry. The entrees of swordfish, branzino and snapper were miniscule for four people who are not big eaters.
the server was extremely professional but a little over the top.
i would probably not go there again.
I had the flight of wines selected by the Sommelier that where amazing! Wonderful freshly made pasta beautifully presented. Great service.
Went for the Miami Spice menu and was not disappointed. This is the third time I have been there and am never sorry. The food is amazing! From the polenta with mushrooms, short ribs ragout and their famous spaghetti, you feel like you died and went to heaven. Service is outstanding, they are there to attend to your every need.
Run don't walk, it's that good.
Fantastic birthday celebration! We had a wonderful Miami Spice dinner. The restaurant is beautiful. Service was superb. The view was amazing! Can't wait to go back!
I took my dad here for Birthday dinner. He loved everything about it. The food is out of this world. The steak tartar, creamy polenta & the cheesecake were our favorites. The ambiance and vibe were perfect. Could not have asked for a better meal.
Very good service and pasta. Can't beat the view. Expensive
All teh dishes were delicious, but nothing to write home about based on creativity or innovation. The hits were the polenta with fricasse of mushrooms and the spaghetti. my siser ordered the swordfish entree and the snapper for her main course, and both were underwhelming, every review raves about the bread basket and i must agree. they had a cantimpalo bread (bread rolled with salami and burrata) that my fiance's grandmother makes that was exquisite. the decor was chic and luxurious, but the scene was the typical south beach crowd which isn't quite my thing in any case. the mascarpone custard with mango sorbet was BEYOND. my sister and i each ordered one and devoured every bite.
They forgot about the birthday girl in our party but everything else was good. It cost 12 dollars just to park w a stamp.
Food was excellent! Vibe was great!
Service was excellent, food was delicious and the ambiance was perfect. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and plan on returning very soon.
Our waiter Ben was fantastic. He give us great recommendations and friendly. He knows his wine as well which is a plus. Try the polenta because you will come back. We will return to Scarpetta soon.
Pleasant experience, excelent service
Spectacular in every way!
I have dined at many restaurants for Miami Spice and never before have I had an experience that even came close to matching Scarpetta. The service was like watching a delicately coreographed ballet. The waitstaff was impressively over attentive without ever being disruptive, there were times I didn't even see or feel them clear the plate in front of me. AND THE FOOD! my goodness was it incredible. Again overdelivery here in that the bread alone with selection of tapenade, marscapone butter and oils was a course in it's own and the palate cleanser of burrata, watermellon and tomato was hevanely. I think we all agreed our desserts are what stole the show. We completed our meal with the wine pariing option and it was a great choice. Thank you
A wonderful Italian restaurant if not the best in South Florida - and I eat at ALL of them! Prices are actually less than many restaurants that offer a whole lot less in quality, style and just wonderful food. Even though I am not a dessert person, the dessert was wonderful and I ate all of mine.
Sometimes the service is slow and confused, however this evening we had a wonderful waiter and the wine steward is always very knowledgeable and helpful.
If you haven't been to this restaurant, give it a try during Miami Spice...you won't regret it!
The service and food were both spectacular. The bread service is fantastic. Love the classic "spaghetti" and the desserts are all beautifully prepared and presented.
