Fantastic impromptu date night spot that we came across on Opentable and knew right away we wanted to go! It has nice outdoor seating that reminded a lot of the restaurant styles in Naples, Italy. Food was fantastic, and it was a good portion to not feel like you’re going to roll out of the place when you finish. Service was very attentive and of course the espresso at the end to finish the meal was great! Definitely will be going back and recommending to all our friends looking for a great small Italian restaurant in the Downtown Miami area.

Comida italiana muy buena, servicio bueno. Lo unico que no me encanto es saliendo de restaurante habia muchas personas que duermen en la calle. Literalmente estas comiendo y en el otro lado de la calle la gente durmiendo en la calle. Todo lo demas muy bien.

We went to celebrate a friends birthday on a random Wednesday night. We were a group of six the service was fantastic, the environment and ambience was wonderful and homey, the wine was delicious & affordable. The staff spoke Italian and the food was to die for delicious. We had a really nice time ended up staying for about three hours they even let us try their new clam dish which was also fantastic. There is street parking as well as valet just down the street and some lots parking was not an issue.

For food we ordered the Eggplant Parm, a bread basket & a Caprese Salad to start.

For Dinner we tried multiple dishes including Pizza, lasagna and the Carbonara.

Melting Lava cake for Dessert - Excellent !!

I recommend for lunch or dinner on a date or with large groups

We dined around 7pm and had the place to ourselves for quite a while. Service was excellent. The arugula and fennel salad was delicious and the rigatoni puttanesca was outstanding. Portion was generous. Very nice ambiance. I will definitely go again.

After 25 min we had to see the hostess to get someone to take our drink order. Tables around us were getting glasses of wine who sat after us. They just forgot our table. It was great food and the place was pretty.

We are very sorry but unfortunately, your reservation did not appear on our open table and the room was fully occupied, as you have certainly noticed. We always try to please our guests whenever possible and always with kindness.

The bruschetta is amazing, highly recommend! I got the Bolognese and my friend had the butternut squash ravioli. Each were good! The place was pretty dead when I went, our table was only one of two that were there. Benefit to that was we were able to sit wherever we wanted, and we chose a cute little table inside with couches and pillows. Service was good and our server was very friendly.

Big portions was our first impression. Service is good but not attentive enough, they take the silverware from the previous course and don’t mark the next one on time. As a person from the industry as well, that is not a perfect scenario.
Overall very good.

My friend and I ate here for a “girlfriends date night” and it was great. We were quickly seated and tended to. We ordered the caesar salad and bruschetta for appetizers. The caesar salad was so delicious, my friend was still raving about it two days later. For our entrees we had the lasagna and the ravioli. Both were well seasoned and very tasty. We also ordered wine and they allowed us to taste before fully committing and we eventually purchased a bottle while talking and enjoying the ambiance. The overall experience was great.

You can tell they care about their food. Homemade bread. High quality olive oil. Delicious. I was a bit worried because it was a bit empty when we got there. More guests came. Reasonably priced.

The food was decent, didn’t expect much for our first time but it actually was a good experience. Few things we noticed. The music playing was today’s pop and we thought that at Italian place you would expect some Italian music or anything more relaxing than pop music. Another thing is that they didn’t have cracked pepper, which we also thought that an Italian restaurant should have.

Very disappointed, they only had one waiter for the entire restaurant, we order wine and waiter totally forgot about it, he was overwhelmed trying to serve 32 people at once, I ordered lasagna and was served a bolognese with cheese and no lasagna layers on the plate whatsoever, description on menu says layers of pasta with meat sauce, didn’t see the pasta there, It is sad because we like to try new restaurants for helping the economy but we will never come back to this place, I didn’t eat my food, what a waste for a Saturday night.

Our waiter was very good and informative we had a limited menu for NYE. The only thing was the manager was very hyper I heard him tell another table that they had two waiters call out. He was acting like it was the end of the world when everything was very calm there. He was overwhelmed which I understand but no need to show the guests that. Just want to say that our waiter was excellent

We were sitting in front of the kitchen, in the alley. We ordered the octopus as an appetizer and literally saw the chef pull it out of a plastic bag.
