Great food and staff - the location is just out of the hustle and bustle of Ocean Drive and Collins Avenue but close enough to get involved if you want

I have eaten Neapolitan pizza at Brandi and Michele. This place is the closest to the real thing outside of Napoli. The taste was a bit off but it was still delicious

Went back to Fratelli and had another fantastic meal. Carbonara was authentic but not too heavy. Eggplant parmesan was a standout. Baked, not fried and not too much cheese. Service was attentive but not cloying.

Few blocks from Ocean Drive, in a bit calmer neighborhood. The food is real good and come in decent sizes, allowing space for an entree or an dessert. My girlfriend mentioned that her Spaghetti Pomodoro was the best she had in Florida, my Linguini ai Gamberi (shrimps) was also very good. There is wifi and the gratuity comes already added... More

I can't say enough about this restaurant. It's small and intimate, and the atmosphere is very cozy, warm and inviting. Everyone was extremely gracious and accommodating and the food was pretty top notch. I got the Diavolo pizza, while my sister had the White pizza. Both dishes were full of flavor, expertly seasoned and filling. The wine list was also... More

We were staying for one night in South Beach and we were craving Italian food. We had several restaurants to choose from but found a coupon for Fratelli La Bufala and decided to walk the 1.5 miles to get there. We passed many Italian restaurants on the way, but serving Paella....not true Italian. We arrived early and asked for outside... More

Loved it! Took one sip of the espresso.... And aaahhhh!!! Real Italian espresso! Apparently the coffee comes from Napoli Italy. The minestrone was delicious, boasting 15 different vegetables. We had thin crust pizza... Delicious. Can't fault it. Even the bathroom was great! Loved the experience, atmosphere and the food, will go back and taste the pasta and have another pizza... More

I have been to this restaurant many times and really enjoy it. My friends and I will continue to go back as it is one of the best Italian restaurants in the area. An Italian opened up pretty much next door and doesn't come close to the quality at Fratelli! The wine selection has some fantastic Italian reds to compliment... More
