“Delicious italian food”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

This is a family run restaurant. They are from Toscana, Italy and have been in Miami for 6 years. The mother is in the kitchen making delicious italian meals, the son acts as waiter/maitre d, and the father is behind the bar. We had one of the best italian meals we've ever had in our lifetime. it,s important to point out that my husband is Italian, so we have been to plenty of restaurants in Italy. Also my mother in law is an excellent cook, so I have a lot to compare from. Don't miss the opportunity of dining here if you are up to eating italian, you won't regret it. I recommend the melanzane a la parmigiana (parmigiana eggplant), the burrata, linguini boscaiola, and for dessert, you are crazy if you miss the mille foglie.

“A taste of "Little Italy"”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

Found the place on tripadvisor and truly enjoyed our evening. Very authentic, frequented by Italians (all the other customers were speaking Italian). Waiter spoke both, knew the menu well, didn't need to write anything down, suggested a nice imported Italian wine that you can only get there. Everything is made to order, very fresh, so keep in mind it's not a rushed evening. In fact the waiter makes this point known early on. Was tricky to find at first as it's in a mini strip mall just past the TJMax. Well worth it.

“Out of this world”
Reviewed 18 November 2012

Went with friends who live in the area, and we would never have known about it otherwise. Located in a small strip mall, this restaurant should be more widely known but if you don't know about it by word of mouth, you would probably pass it by. The food is stupendous. Can't even describe the variety and unusual combinations. The owner showed us the leg of Proscuitto he was going to cut from, so fresh and flavorful. Wonderful buffalo mozzarella, eggplant rollatine that is like a cloud, with creamy cheese oozing out. Pricey, but worth it. Highly recommended.
