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!

We went for dinner. The manager greeted us with a nice smile, which the ones who are sensitive to good treatment always appreciate. All dishes were delicious and they offered a white a red wine tasting with no cost which was amazing. Make a reservation to seat outside, so you can have dinner or lunch if you were on a... More

Nice restaurant. Very friendly staff. Classic Italian menu, dishes are prepared with respect for tradition. We had calamari fritti as a starter and spaghetti carbonara and linguini alle vongole as a main course, accompanied by a nice glass of wine.

We walked to the Mondrian Hotel, looking for a nice place to have dinner, and we found the Cara Mia. We were made very welcome, although we had no reservation, and sat at a lovely table in the garden. The menu has lots of great choices of Italian food and the dishes are made with top quality products. The wine... More

It was very quiet on a Wednesday night when we were there. We sat outside on their patio. Service was okay, nothing special. We had to ask if there were any specials. This information was not given to us and we would not have known of specials if we had not asked. We shared the tomato and buffalo mozzarella salad.... More

i want to take this opportunity, once for all, to reiterate this concept; if you don't like the REAL Italian cuisine (which provides, al dente pasta, typical food and not junk "italianstyle" food), this is not and never will be your favorite restaurant. i agree with you, there are a lot of FAKE italian restaurant in Miami where you can...

This is a small family run place with a limited menu and small wine list. The setting is casual and the service is very attentive and polite. The food is excellent, you won't find every Italian dish you've heard of, but what they offer is familiar and cooked excellently.

Nice location across from the Mondrian. So a nice easy walk. Staff was friendly and very attentive. Smaller restaurant, nice Decor, Italian romantic. Both appetizers were excellent. Eggplant Mellonazie and the Octopus. Octopus was excellent best in a long long time. Made proper. Sliced very thin. Must try. Main Dishes... Ahhhh was OK. Carbonara the prosutto was well under cooked... More
