Many people complain about overpriced yet mediocre food at Italian restaurants Miami, sure this may be the case at some Italian restaurants Miami where this may be the case, there are however a select few locations where the “overpriced” dish is worth every single penny. For those interested in delicious Italian food in Miami, here are five hot spots you cannot miss.
1. La Locanda
A tiny hole in the wall Italian joint which is completely run by people who are actually from Italy is a must have for every city, that is what La Locanda is. This delicious and authentic Italian restaurant is actually less expensive than some of the bigger competitors out there and offers quite an extensive menu straight from their homeland, the pizza is rumored to be the best in all of Miami.
2. Cibo Wine Bar
This joint is far from subtle, not only do they have, but they boast about their 3,500 bottles of wine. They have a glass case that is two stories high right smack in the middle of the 12, 000 square foot restaurant and, waiting to retrieve your selection, there are “wine angels” dressed in fishnet stockings and spandex and dangling from the ceilings. Their home-made pastas, wood-oven pizzas and sauces pair nicely with the wines they have for you to choose from.
3. Soya E Pomodoro
Not all people in Miami continue living with their Italian families forever as is portrayed in countless movies and TV shows and for those away from home the occasional desire to feel as if once again they are eating with family. If that is the case, this quaint Downtown location that is run by an elderly Italian couple is ideal, you cannot always be certain when they will open they are closed on American as well as Italian holidays and just about whenever they feel like it. The furniture is mismatched making it feel exactly like home and, believe it or not is is one of Miami’s most romantic restaurants.
4. Louie Bossi¥s
This is a Big City Tavern mega restaurant type where you can find steaks that are dry-aging on site and dishes such as pasta mafaldine which are the burnt ends off of lasagna that have been tossed in a pork and beef ragu, delicious and never seen before. Their Italian mojitos are perfect just do not drink many unless you have a rode home.
5. Pane E Vino
This amazing joint is a must see, there is literally chef making pasta right in front of your window. This small, narrow restaurant that offers small tables and serves their wine in tumblers actually delivers on their food. There is not a single pasta on their menu that you could go wrong with and top it off with an exceptionally fast, competent and friendly service, this is the place that you want to always come back for more.
These are some of the best Italian restaurants in the Miami area that will actually serve you ca dish that is definitely worth the price.
