Just coming in a this restaurant is already a very pleasant experience. The way one is greeted makes you feel welcome and one is assured of a nice dining experience. The food is outstanding, the pasta is fresh and perfectly cooked, and the seafood is expertly prepared. The service is down to earth, friendly but not overwhelmingly so. They don't greet you saying, "Hi, my name is So-and-so and I will be your server today." That is one of my biggest pet peeves in the restaurant industry in the USA. The only problem is that it is very pricey; however, the portions are big enough to share and to bring home leftovers.

Terrific food. Terrible service. Our waiter abandoned us halfway through our meal never to be seen again. After 45 minutes of waiting to order dessert the bus boy tried his best to take care of us. We weren’t the only table abandoned.

This is a small, cozy italian restaurant in Grand with good parking options including valet at $8.00. The service is friendly and adequate but I wouldn't say outstanding. The food, though, was really, really good and they will accommodate special diet needs. They make their own pasta from scratch and import from Italy a lot of their ingredients. The portions are adequate. They do not have full bar: just wine and limited beer options. Because it is so small -maybe 10-12 tables- the noise level is quite high. Overall, I would definitely go back. If you do, make sure to make reservations.

I went out for a casual dinner with my son who wanted to try the truffle spaghetti.
My son took the famous Cacio et Pepe truffle spaghetti dish served in a Parmesan bowl. The portion was pretty small and not as tasty as one would expect. The seafood pasta that I had was OK, but again not really tasteful. Felt like rushed. The service was OK with a very close style sitting arrangement which make the place pretty noisy. We left in less than an hour paying $100 for 2 pasta dishes and 1 glass of white wine.. I am not planning in going back to this restaurant. There are so many better choices.

The service is good and the food also although I wouldn’t recommend the pasta with shrimp and pesto sauce. Too strong. The fritti calamari as an appetizer is good.

Great food. Fast service although not the most friendly one. NOT like the usual "italian restaurants" that have always the same type of dishes. Pastas are a must!

The best food in Coconut Grove. I strongly suggest to include Caccio e Pepe in the menu. I dont know why its not included if its the star plate of the restaurant. The restaurant is small, sometimes uncomfortable if you are with kids and strollers.

The overall experience is incredible and the service is awesome. The waiters know everything about the menu, speak 2 languages and have good attitude

Enjoy the Italian vibe. Love their cacio de Pepe and service. Last visit thought the fish pricing was a bit high considering the location or comparison to a Cipriani as pricing was similar. Overall enjoy going.

The staff are friendly, the service was good, food came out timely, the place is a bit small so it gets noisy fast. The pasta in the pecorino cheese wheel with truffles was the best pasta I’ve ever had. Our calamari appetizer was practically unseasoned and the color was very pale, the upside being it wasn’t chewy or greasy. The fried veal steak was also unseasoned, dry, and not as tender as it you would expect for a $50 veal that came with a small salad of greens and a couple of potato slices. Panna cotta and tiramisu were both delicious.

Not what I expected based on previous reviews. I was excited to go there but left disappointed. The burrata nothing to rave about. My 8 year old did not like the spaghetti, I mean how can you messed up a plate of spaghetti. My food was the lobster spaghetti, again the lobster hard and chewy and my husband was a house special which was spaghetti that comes in a wheel of cheese, that one was ok but heavy in sauce. On the other hand, the wine was imported from Italy and that was excellent, we had 2 bottles. Will i return? No, thank you
