Nice homey atmosphere with quite good Italian food... Service was quite good. The place is clean. Ordered some whole wheat penne with sautéed vegetables... took time to arrive, but worth the wait!!! Congrats chef... very good and tasty... All in all will come again! Enjoy

Best food ever, great selection and decent portion size. Not too expensive and walkable from most hotels

Great Italian restaurant we've been going to for decades. Many new Italian restaurants have opened in Surfside FL which we have not eaten at but their menus were very expensive.

This is by far the best Italian Restaurant in Miami, Giani the owner is most of the time there, real soul food!!! I tried today Cafe Ragazzi because Specchio was close for lunch, way way behind. Try all pastas, meets, salads and the most glorious Ricotta cheesecake ever. It is a hidden gem. Must visit

Loved this place, you feel in Italy. Small and cozy warm Italian simple decor. Service staff very well trained and friendly, and not pushy which makes it a pleasure. Food was amazing.

Used trusty Trip Advisor and it didn't let us down again. Fabulous friendly team and really good food. We had both cheesecake and tiramisu for dessert and both were excellent.

Had a very special dinner at Specchio's. The owner greeted us with warmth and treated us like family. We had a cheese and grape platter followed by several melt in your mouth Italian dishes and tiramisu. The place is tiny, but has some tables outside as well. Next time we're in the area we will definitely go back. Have recommended... More

Very, very good eats at this small, intimate hole in the wall in Surfside. ITALIAN food at its best, homestyle so don't expect anything too fancy
