This is by far the best Italian Restaurant in Miami, Giani the owner is most of the time there, real soul food!!! I tried today Cafe Ragazzi because Specchio was close for lunch, way way behind. Try all pastas, meets, salads and the most glorious Ricotta cheesecake ever. It is a hidden gem. Must visit

Loved this place, you feel in Italy. Small and cozy warm Italian simple decor. Service staff very well trained and friendly, and not pushy which makes it a pleasure. Food was amazing.

Used trusty Trip Advisor and it didn't let us down again. Fabulous friendly team and really good food. We had both cheesecake and tiramisu for dessert and both were excellent.

We had a cheese and grape platter followed by several melt in your mouth Italian dishes and tiramisu. The place is tiny, but has some tables outside as well. Next time we're in the area we will definitely go back. Have recommended... More

Very, very good eats at this small, intimate hole in the wall in Surfside. ITALIAN food at its best, homestyle so don't expect anything too fancy

Solo trip to Miami and visited this amazing restaurant .... Quiet and small but a true gem in Surfside. My attentive and sweet server Marco suggested an amazing appetizer --burrata salad with -arugula and tomatoes. Excellent clam pasta and an unforgettable dessert... The chefs cheesecake is the best I have EVEr!!! I would highly recommend this restaurant--I will be going... More
