We dropped in with 12 people and they made space for us. Some of them were Italian descendants - they appreciated the real Italian flavor. We had a good wine, good gnocchi, raviolis, pasta, desserts, everything was really good.

If you love real Italian food, don’t miss this gem. We walked there from nearby airport hotel. Everything fresh and delicious. One note, doesn’t open til 6 in the evening, which we didn’t notice until we got there. Well worth the wait.

Staff friendly and very attentive. Loved the atmosphere. Small, quaint and lots of locals. The exterior is a strip mall--but that only makes for great prices and great food. Had the Spinach Fettuccine in Lobster Sauce and a Spinach Salad. Both big enough to share....More

Most pasta dishes are only 10 bucks for lunch. I added chicken to my pesto pasta for an additional two dollars. Lunch brings soup or salad too. This place packs them in daily and with good reason. Good Food at a good price never goes...More

Fresh food and great service in a strip center just to the North of MIA. It's become our go-to place to either wait for returning/visiting family flights, or to spend some quality food time near MIA.
