Macaluso's is a place that brings so many emotions to my heart, soul, and palate, of course. Everything is perfect--the lighting, the music, the ambiance, and what we all come here for: the food. I've been eating here for almost 15 years but last night's...More

Example: a bottle of Monsanto Chianti Classico Riserva ($22-25 retail) was...wait for it...$90. Literally 4 times the retail price. Furthermore, when our...More

This is a first stop go to always when we are all together as a family in Miami Beach. (Southern end). The menu changes regularly, there is always fresh fish and vegetables, and very cheery wait staff.

Do not waste your time or money with all the amazing food that the south beach area has to offer. Service was poor and the food was similar to a lean cuisine. Flavorless, dry, etc. I am angry that we wasted our time and money.

Macaluso's routinely has available several different types of Decco pasta (served al dente). Decco is certainly their pasta of choice. I do not recall ever seeing "gluten free" listed on the written (or verbal) menu (but I... More
