    Calamari: crispy and fresh no salt 7/10 Verde salad: crispy and fresh yet forgettable (how about those 3 paper thin apple slices) 6/10 presentation not good. Brasso: tender yet extremely dry , sauce tastes store bought. 5/10 lasagna: 7/10 With a small menu i would expect better presentation and thoroughness. Do you want return customers? Customer service and attentiveness relative to inflated reviews , price point and location 4/10 Texting behind the counter ... at least go in the back, So forgettable, incredulous of the star ratings.

    We had an amazing time, our server was so sweet and attentive to our 1 year old girl. Our other two daughters enjoyed very much their Spaghetti al Pomodoro, which is a win for us, and the portion was just right. My husband and I ordered Bresaola as an appetizer, and it was excellent; it had thinly-sliced Parmesan cheese that paired perfectly with the meat. I decided to go for Linguine di Mare which was very good, although it definitely had the taste of the sea. You could tell that the juices of the seafood were added to the sauce, so a little bit goes a long way. My husband picked Ravioli Ragú Genovese which was a perfect amount and delicious. Overall our visit was very pleasant, and we will definitely go back to try new things.

    Best pasta dishes in Miami! And the rest of their menu is also among the best Italian food I have had in town. If most of the table around you are Italian customers, you know this is the real deal :-) Great service too, Highly recommend this hidden gem!
