From the name of the retsaurant I thought we would be going to a place with formica benches and a walk up order counter. Far from it, lovely ambiance, fabulous waitstaff and food that knocked my socks off!! Virginia helped us with the menu and treated us like we were valuable regular customers - encouraging us to order "adventurouly" and try some differnt things. She was right, I had the dish featuring homemade pasta stffed with cheese and pear with a creamy sause that was the best I have ever tasted. I come from Boston where the North End has hundreds of native Italian restaurants and this beat them hands down. Try it if you get down to Miami, but know it will be crowded.
Came here today for lunch. Service was fast and the food was very affordable when compared to other Downtown Miami eateries. Prices range from about $6-8 dollars. I had the spinach pasta with vodka sauce. It tasted great! The only reason I didn't give this place five stars is because the man that was boiling the pasta had a crappy attitude. Everyone one else was very nice.
