Me and my family were staying in Miami for a few days and the restaurant was just one block away from the hotel. The food and staff were very good.

We are from NY so I can say we are def pizza snobs! We live in Jupiter and were in Miami for the weekend! We ordered a salad to share which was the Mediterranean. It had mozzerella, green olives, on greens with a lemony vinaigrette. We ordered tagatelle bolognese and it was delicious. Portion size was really small but the... More

Every time we visit Miami, we make it a point to go eat at Fratelli La Bufala. Being Italian, I am very particular about my pizza. The pizzas at FLB are simply amazing. The dough is light, chewy and moist in the middle - exactly how a southern pizza should be. This is not a commercial pizzeria - if you... More

If you like simple, but perfectly prepared Margherita (tomato sauce, cheese, basil) pizza in the style of southern Italy, you can't do better than this small pizzeria a few blocks west of the beach in South Beach. They use authentic ingredients (Buffalo mozzarella- hence their name, fresh sauce, fresh dough daily) and bake it quickly in a wood fired oven.... More

I live in the neighborhood and first went to this restaurant when it first opened. While I consider myself a foodie, I like my pizza simple and love all pasta. The first time I had the pizza I sent it back. The mozzarella while fresh, makes this pizza completely soggy. When I asked for another they said that is the... More

For a quick trip to Italy's flavors, you should check this place in Miami Beach... I ordered a shrimp salad (very decent), the pizzas are a delight, the bufala mozarella cheese is great. I agree they should take a good look into not letting the pizza to get burned at the oven. Yet this is the very traditional way to... More

... but they just shouldn't burn the pizzas (at the bottom); it was a little too much. Staff was ok but nothing special; tip was already added (I don't like that). I wouldn't check it out again, except for a pizza to go.
