“The best authentic Italian food in Miami!!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed 15 September 2012

This place was great. The waiter was very friendly and made sure we had everything that we needed/wanted. The food was awesome! My friend and I ordered the spinach lasagna and it was to die for! The dish was very rich and tasted like it was made with lots of love, as the owners try to capture true essence of Italian food. My other friend ordered the salmon pasta and she said her dish was excellent. I would definitely come back here before I leave to fly back to NY. The price wasn't bad at all and in my opinion the food tasted as if we couldve been charged more for it ;-). I recommend anyone that loves Italian food and a nice clean and quiet atmosphere to come to Cantina 27 for a dish!

“Italian food in miami”
Reviewed 27 July 2012

As a european with italian roots it was hard to find good food. Fast food and restaurants that pretend to be italian by just placing an italian guy in the restaurants who says the pasta is "al dente" when its clearly not. So i found cantina 26 near my hotel i asked the owners about their roots and food they were the real deal. They food us fresh and prepared tastefully. If your looking for fresh italian cooking for a reasonable price look no futhet. Bon a petito

“really that good?”
Reviewed 26 July 2012

after a decent walk from out hotel, we came across this restaurant. They proudly display the trip advisor rating on the counter which convinced me to eat here. REALLY that good folks? Very average food, average service and average place.

“Outstanding service and food”
Reviewed 16 July 2012 via mobile

We went to this restaurant on the back of reviews on TripAdviser, and we're somewhat dubious as the venue was not much to look at from the outside. Once inside, the owners and staff made us extremely welcome and were polite, and friendly without being overbearing. The food choice was very varied and offered an array of home made Italian cuisine. The pasta was stunningly al dente and the home made sauces tickled the taste buds perfectly. Tipped off with a mouth watering devilishly high calory dessert to seal the perfect dining experience. Shame we hadn't discovered this jewel in the South Beach crown earlier, or we would not have wasted our time and money going to the vastly over rated Espanola Way, when the is clearly a more pleasant, authentic and reasonably priced alternative at this venue.

Thank Chris S
