When looking for a place to eat I sometimes just have a direction.. Tonight I wanted to see what we could find on 53rd Street. I was here a few months ago and between 2nd and 3rd Avenue this street is packed with restaurants, and an Insomnia cookie. After reviewing a few menus we selected Angelo Bellini. It was very good. I had a fabulous Cosmopolitan from the bar which left me a bit stupid, and a delicious Veal Marsala… I couldn’t finish it. The bread was good, a bit of olive oil and cheese.. voila, Im a happy camper.
Why I am not a regular here I don’t know. I have eaten here twice, its in the neighborhood, the price is right, the place is comfortable and the food really is very good.
A step up Italian eatery with a varied menu…the chicken viola was unique, delicious and there was a big enough portion that I brought enough home for a midnight snack.
Hands Down my favorite, even though they don’t have a dessert I love. For the first two years I came here I got the Papparadeli Short Ribs. I had tasted it and knew nothing could compare. Then one night I tried a piece of fish with risotto, then I tried the short rib, then another piece of fish. Now I don’t know what to order except of course the Duck Salad to start, unless I order the Ceasar, with a few anchovies. Beer and Wine only.
This place was on its way to being my new favorite when we went on a Wednesday night three years ago. But then i went back, and so not my favorite, just ordinary, not so great the second time

Hidden in the back of shopping center find this charming little restaurant with very good food.
We had a wonderful steak and a magnificent Chicken ravioli in pesto
Behind the miami airport, in an industrial neighborhood sits this charming Italian restaurant.
Decorated with care and a unique eye, even the menu looks original. And the food was fabulous. The service friendly and something about the place sets it apart.
I have always gone at someone else suggestion and never been unhappy. Last time I was here I tried the ribs. I must say, they give the wings a run for their money. A neighborhood pizza place. I could take it or leave it.
I have gone back and forth on DiNapoli for years. My first experience was bad, then years later I returned and it was fine. I have been twice in the past year and taken out twice, all good. So, for neighborhood Italian its a good choice. You have to choose it over Papa Piccolo ( http://papapiccolopizzeria.eat24hour.com ), Papa Riccos ( at 144 and US 1) and giros ( http://cirosonline.com ) which isn’t easy.
Caffe Italia at 3800 SW 8th Street is one of those places I wish were closer. I love the tortellini alfredo, the garlic rolls, the feel of the place. Its definitely a local Italian but with a bit more comfort than the places closer.
Across from town and country Mall.
I loved this little place. Great upscale Italian , cloth napkins on the table, lovely wait staff. They have an extensive menu and are happy to make adjustments. I was able to get a vegetable. I have been a few times and everyone has bee happy with everything they had. I suggest a reservation as they do fill up.
