Operated by Juventus team supporters ;) you will experiment the real taste of Italian food. Very kind & welcoming staff. The restaurant is nice & well maintained.

This is a very nice restaurant that makes you feel right at home. Service is professional and friendly and there is a good selection on the menu. Starters were typical and authentic Italian fare. Our pastas however were a bit disappointing. I ordered an aglio e olio off the menu (which they kindly agreed to do) but it had no flavour whatsoever, as if the chef didn't quite know how to prepare it. Also, their pricing was a bit odd. On one hand they charged too much for off the menu dishes, but then took 50% off the food and beverage bill because it was a Monday. So can't complain, but had that not been the case it would have been vastly overpriced for what we got. Wonder if their regular chef wasn't in given the other glowing reviews.

thanks for your review and I'm so sorry about your disappoint, but as you know better, when people ordering the different dishes out of regular menu (above all in the particular offer-days), usually in all the world, the restaurants charge a little bit more respect the average price and also the flavor is different.
In your particular dishes, in Italy we use the red pepper to complete the taste, but you asked specifically to the waiter to make it, just with garlic and olive oil.
For me is a great mistake, but you are the customer and you asked this.
that's precisely why I ask my waiters don't vary much our dishes, because if the chef prepares them with the traditional Italian recipe, there's the reason....
have a wonderful day
ciao

Actually one of the best Italian dinner I ever had and then I've been in Italy like 30 times.

The location is a little bit of but Uber and a few dollars will take you there and the food is while worth it!

Luigi and his staff are just great hosts and people. Linguini con vongole was excellent. Pana Cotta was delicious. Risotto superb. Monday nights are 1/2 price. Support the local non chain restaurant. This is the fabric of Miami Beach. Good people, great service, great food.
