I went to Cara Mia Restaurant last night with my friends and we had the best Italian dinner that we experienced in South Beach. The service is excellent in a very friendly atmosphere. For sure I will go back there for a special night

My boss and I ate here with customers. The food was excellent, the staff was friendly, professional and accommodating. I was prepared for high prices, but found them normal for the area. We will return.

Went there for dinner last night. Was a nice restaurant outside the busy tourist center of SoBe. A nice 10-15 walk from our hotel on Collins Ave. We were greeted when we arrived and the service throughout our meal was very nice. Had carpaccio and pasta which was very good, paired with a bottle of good reasonably priced wine from... More

This place is a bit away from the hustle and bustle of South Beach and worth the trip. We were warmly welcomed and offered tastings of their wine specials before ordering. This was some of the best Italian food we had in South Beach, genuinely good and unpretentious. Just amazingly flavorful and presented with pride as it deserved to be.

Cara Mia is a wonderful place, we had some wine, an appetizer and two delicious entrees. The carbonara and the risotto was cooked and... More

We love Cara Mia - the staff is always very friendly and accommodating. It's a chill place to dine. Outside seating is a nice option - one we always choose. Tasty fresh pasta, great flavors all around. Get the bruschetta as an appetizer!
