Italian
While we are currently closed, head next door to our signature restaurant LT Steak & Seafood for trattoria classics from The Alley’s menu — handmade cacio e pepe, artisanal pizzas, and more, served in a spectacular outdoor setting.

Tucked away in the back of The Betsy, The Alley is a modern trattoria serving Neapolitan-style pizza, homemade pasta, charcuterie, salads, Italian-style cocktails, beer & wine. Inspired by timeless Italian techniques, Chef Laurent Tourondel spent over a year perfecting his signature pizza dough, hand-stretched to order by our artisan pizzaiolos, topped with ingredients that would make Nonna proud, then baked to perfection in our earthstone oven. Insider’s Tip: try the whipped ricotta and finish off your meal with a frozen orange gelato.

The Alley is also available for small groups and private dining.

    Food was amazing. Service was very attentive. 50% off all bottles of wine. Covid19 precautions: face masks, tables very far apart, only disposable plates/glasses/utensils. Cacio e pepe is a must!

    The service is ok nothing special, and the food wasn’t good

    The Alley at The BetsyResponded on August 10, 2020We are very grateful that you took the time to share your disappointment with our performance. Naturally, as one of Miami Beach’s most celebrated restaurant and hotel properties, it pains us a great deal when we fall short. It would be very beneficial to us if we could hear more about your experience. Would you be willing to have a conversation with us? Our apologies again.

    This was our third visit to the Alley. It seems to be hit and miss as to whether we have a good meal or not. This last visit was not so great because my pizza was not cooked very well. It had been cooked on too high a heat but for too short a time. The outside edge was very black and burnt in places but the middle dough was soggy and uncooked. I couldn’t eat it. To be fair, I was not charged and was given the offer to have another, but a pizza in a pizza restaurant should be perfect each time. Disappointing as on our last visit our pizzas were lovely. Perhaps a different chef.

    Lively restaurant with some outdoor eating space. The food was outstanding if you like neapolitana style pizza. Light dough, cooked to perfection. As an entree we had olives and parmesan. What a deal for this quality of food! Friendly staff. Clean. Beautiful bathrooms.

    The greeter unfortunately was clueless. Had to repeat numerous times that we had reservations. We spotted our friends ourselves. However, our waitress did a good job of taking orders and working with us to get special dishes made. There 4 in our party, and all but one thought that their entree was very good. Unfortunately, The Alley does not serve decaff coffee and that was a disappointment to us.

    Our waiter greeted us with a warm hello and a warning that we would be waiting 40 minutes for any food we ordered. The warning was accurate. The table next to us was served another table’s pizza, which a waiter then served to another table. When our pizza arrived, we cut into it (which involved touching it with our hands) only to discover it wasn’t what we had ordered. Shockingly, when we flagged down a waiter about the mistake, they picked it up and served it to another table. The food is very good, but the service was not professional as described above.

    A great dining experience. Service was friendly and professional. The food was delicious. It is one of the best pizzas I’ve had. The crust is good enough to eat alone. The seafood pasta was very flavorful and had a good amount of seafood. We enjoyed the casual ambience and location

    Excellent pizza - we had the Marzano and Mufaletta. The dough and toppings were very tasty. Best we’ve had in a long time. We shared the zucchini and arugula salad which had a lemon and olive oil dressing- light and tasty. Highly recommend this spot.

    When we (party of 4) came in we asked the hostess for a table that had a cushion bench and she falsely said that it was reserved for a party of six. The restaurant was half empty. She ended up sitting a party of 3 in the table we wanted. Our waiter was courteous. The food was quite poor; pretentious tiny pizzas with barely-there ingredients, overpriced, and with a mediocre taste, at best. A 20% tip is added automatically. Overall a restaurant with a mediocre, overpriced & pretentious menu, an impolite hostess, and an overblown bill. A $2 pizza slice in Washington Ave would have been quite the better choice.

    Whenever we are in South Beach- we dine at The Alley at the Betsy for two reasons. 1. The food is simply outstanding. 2. The service is excellent A secret fact- you can call ahead and get the pizza for take out. It tastes as good on the beach as it does at a table. Reservations recommended.

    I went to this place with the hope of enjoying a really good pizza as that is the prominent item on the menu. The pizza was not good; soggy. We tried two different selections. Oddly, the starters, meatballs and grilled octopus were delicious. Don’t go for pizza.
