The 12 Best Italian Restaurants Offering Miami Spice

Where to eat Italian food in Miami right now

If you don’t like pizza and pasta, look away. We basically don’t want anything to do with you.

I think we can all agree on a few things when it comes to loyalty and signs of those that are iffy. Never trust someone that doesn’t love dogs, music and Italian food. Okay, okay, so some of you might be allergic to dogs. We get it. But you still like them…

Anyways, back to the main topic of conversation: Italian food. We’re here for the vitello tonnato and staying for the truffle risotto. Here are our recommendations for the 12 Best Italian Restaurants Offering Miami Spice. You can do lunch for $23 (includes an appetizer, entrée, and dessert) or dinner for $39 (includes an appetizer, entrée, and dessert).
