Well traveled, this Bolognese did not disappoint. Pasta and meat sauce delicious and authentic. Bread and butter also great! Enjoyed thoroughly!

We stopped by there for breakfast and ordered two egg dishes. It took all of fourtyfive minutes for them to appear. No applogy from management, the server or any other consideration. Once the food arrived it was warm, not hot. No return planned.

We try to visit this place when ever we are in South Beach. Service and the food have always been excellent and we were glad that this visit was no exception. The server was spot on with his recommendations and we once again enjoyed an excellent meal. True, it can be pricey, but then again we noticed price increases at... More

Our server Roberto was awesome. Very cheerful and attentive. We got a Carbonara pasta and Gnocchi. Both were AMAZING! I like how they were served in skillets instead of plates. The restaurant was expensive, which is obviously expected being in Miami. The servings weren't tiny but they weren't huge either. Either way, this was a great choice for italian in... More

It seems you can find Italian on just about any corner these days, but to find one that is above average is actuallly rather difficult. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of food here and the presentation. The only reason I wouldn't rate it excellent is because the wine list is overpriced for what it is. As far as... More

The pizza was okay but had a sweet-like taste that was not very good. This less-than-perfect meal would have been okay if it wasn't for the... More

What an amazing Italian meal. Awesome customer service. The restaurant manager Debora was amazing, she stopped by a couple of times to make sure we were please with everything and she was very pleasant. This is now our favorite real Italian restaurant. I highly recommend it.

My wife and I had the Chicken Parmesan. It was the very expensive, so we assumed it would be special. WRONG!!! Both our meals were like eating burnt dried out cardboard. The wait staff is very lazy just like all the restaruants on Ocean Drive.
