Amazing food and amazing staff. We had kind of determined what we wanted from the menu and was totally upsold with their specials which were TOTALLY AWESOME. Jose was our server. We had the lobster cocktail, Kobe Bolognese and the seafood ravioli - all which were to die for but a special call out to the seafood ravioli. Offered top... More

My son and I did not want to wait 2 hours for a seat at Joe's Stone Crab so we backtracked to the heavenly smell of Italian food that caught our attention earlier. The food portions are crazy big and sharing is highly recommended. My Chilean Sea Bass was more than enough food and with the delicious risotto it was... More

We stayed in the busy section of South Beach and we were looking for someplace that had great food and was a little quieter than the local bars. This was the place to go. I think you have to dress up a bit more than we were, but we sat outside in front of the restaurant. The wait staff was... More

What a nice place. We were greeted by a group of smiling ladies that could be runway models and seated right away. Our waiter recited an expansive list of specials perfectly and didn't rush us in the least. Complimentary garlic bread served with a side of tomato sauce was wonderful and fresh. I ordered the 1 lb. Kobe Meatball with... More

We ordered appetizer's and our friends sales came out wrong 30 minutes later they cancelled the salad as kitchen was to busy to get it out. Service was decent but food took 1 and a half ours to...

We had reservations at their sister restaurant Prime 112 across the street, but after waiting 2 hours even with a reservation. We decided to leave and head to Italian. And I'm glad we did. Atmosphere not as crazy and the food was very good!

We had just arrived in Miami on a long haul international flight and did not expect much to be open late on a Tuesday night... Walking around the corner from our accommodation, we were pleasantly surprised to see lots of patrons dining both indoors and outside at Prime Italian! After being quickly seated inside, our knowledgeable and enthusiastic waiter Harry... More

Our second times there in 6 months. Prices very high in view of "average" quality of food. Quantity is there, no doubt about that. WIne list is very expensive. We selected an affordable italien wine (70$) but after we had finished our appetizers we wwere told it was not available. Apart from that, waiters are friendly but slow, and patrons... More
