Booked a day ahead to ensure a good table. We were pleasantly greeted and sat right away at a good table. I was with my wife (who is Italian) and a cook in her own right. After reviewing the menu and talking amongst ourselves we agreed to get the wine rolling and talk to our waiter about what he'd eat... More

went here for lunch with coworkers and was less than impressed. This place has been here for a while so I thought if it has survived staying open all these years on South Beach it must be good, meh. The caprese salad appetizer was good but you really can't get cheese and tomatoes wrong, but a whooping price of $17.50,... More

Went here as a party of 4. Had pizzas and salads. Food was really good. However, the payment process was a little bit frustrating. We had a coupon from our hotel that said "-15% on everything". Nevertheless, when the waiter came with our check the discounted amount was not correct. Had to talk to the manager, who then in turn... More

My wife and I walked to Fratelli from our hotel upon a recommendation from the hotel manager. The pizzas are essentially personal sized with four slices so they are perfect to split with your date along with a salad or appetizer. The bread for the table was very fresh and the olive oil for dipping was outstanding. We started with... More

Excellent Italian Food and Staff Fratelli la Bufala is not only true Italian cuisine, but the staff are friendly and professional. The food is so good that we had dinner there and went back the next day for lunch. Close to Ocean Drive. Roberto is an awesome person. Grazie amici e fratelli.

The pizza was very good. Very well risen dough, not soggy, good ingredients on top... and obviously buffalo mozzarella cheese Very well cooked, as I like it. It is what is called Napoli style pizza... or close to it The place isn't very big, but wasn't full during our Friday evening visit. They have a few seat outside, but the... More

Thank you for choosing Fratelli La Bufala Miami Beach and Thank you for your feedback. I'm glad to hear about the Pizza but at the same time I'm so sad to hear about the service and the story of the bottle of water. I will personally look into what happened in that specific day and make sure this will not... More

We sat outside at a table for four. A pleasant young man with a thick Italian accent served us. He was so helpful. The food was excellent. My wife and I shared a pizza and bruschetta. Good portions. Somewhat pricey but all fresh ingredients. Caution: This is Italian style pizza, not American. Our friends had a white lasagna made with... More

This place was even better than expected! I'm pretty sure that you can't go wrong with anything that you order here. From the drinks and appetizers (highly recommend the fried mozzarella and prosciutto), to the main courses and desserts, everything was delicious and well worth the round trip cab fare for 4 ($70) to eat there! I truly can't wait... More

This is the the typical pizza "napoletana" (which is different than other pizza you will find in Italy). I love it (the buffalo mozzarella add something). If you pair with a fresh Moretti beer you have the real pizzeria experience. Service is fast and friendly and the decor is very nice. I will definitely go back for a good real... More

If you are looking for the real deal, you should definitely try this place. Try the original margherita (with buffalo mozzarella) and a nice Moretti beer and you are as close as it gets to the real pizzeria experience. The staff is very friendly and I was in and out very fast (you normally don't sit for hours at a... More
