Disappointing. Been here a number of times and today was a let down. Food preparation was NOT up to their typical standard. Off night I hope. Service was also irreverent and we felt unappreciated. Second time the greeter at the door says they don’t have our open table reservation. And the look on their face seems to say they aren’t thrilled we are here. Too many good options elsewhere to feel unwelcomed here.

Lovely but too rushed, quality not quantity of service please. We came by taxi from the airport especially to visit and wanted a relaxed dining experience.

We will be back though.

My wife and I had dinner on a Saturday. The restaurant is a small place, and it was packed. So much so, that you basically end up sharing tables with strangers. Because it is so full, the restaurant is very loud, preventing you from having a conversation without shouting. My wife had the halibut special, which was fine, but not great. I had the seafood pasta which, which was over cooked, and the calamari was so chewy it was inedible. The servers were very attentive and friendly, but not overbearing, which made the experience more enjoyable. There must be some magic to this place because it was packed with a line out the door. Our experience, though, was very average.

I was recommended the special for the night, filet mignon and it was the worst steak ever otherwise other food was fine. No salt or seasoning, it was tasteless and expensive.

Phenomenal food, great owner/hostess. Their signature baked pasta with truffles is unmissable. Great little place for a romantic meal or cozy business dinner. Best Italian I’ve had in Miami.

A hole in the wall restaurant located in coconut grove. I’ve traveled to Italy and this restaurant somewhat resembles a restaurant in Italy. The ambiance is that of an oceanic type, with some outdoor tables. The tables inside are somewhat tight, you may bump into someone at another table; but it’s intimate. The food was good, but overrated and over priced. It was a nice first time coming here and I do recommend for you to try it at least once, but in my humble opinion, this restaurant is a little overrated.

Everything we ate there - my wife had pasta and I had a delicious branzino - was so good - and the service was so good and caring - we came back the very next night. We've never done that before in any restaurant we've eat in here in Miami. And it was just as good (maybe even better) the second night as it was the first. The person who recommended it to us - who is a chef/owner of a local French restaurant was in Miami for a week looking for good Italian food - and ate there three times in a row. Go. Try it. It's so good, so delicious, and such a pleasant place to eat, It will become a habit. Like it is with us.

A friend could't wait to bring me here to share the cacio y pepe and it was truly remarkable. Just writing about it now makes my mouth water. Service was attentive (but not irritatingly so) and very friendly. Intimate place without feeling cramped. Can't wait to go back!

A Grove favorite. Veronica makes sure that the energy is fun, upbeat and positive . The staff will customize dishes/ingredients and they're focused on providing an excellent dining experience. The pastas are delicious- especially the cacio e Pepe with truffles. Start with octopus or the burrata. Save room for the lemon cake.
