One of the few restaurants in Miami with an actual view of the water, this pricey pasta joint is ideal for fans of garlic, truffles and homemade pasta that’s a far cry from Ragu. Spaghetti alla carbonara will set you back $27, while risotto with porcini mushrooms is a divine culinary creation with an ungodly price tag of $37. If you really want to splurge, there’s a filet of beef with sautéed foie gras for $55. Service is old school, verging on stuffy, but what you’re paying for here is the view. Considering Miami’s volatile real estate market, it makes sense.

I have been there lots of times. And the food has become worse and worse lately. I don't know if they have changed chef or if they just had a really bad day the last time. I travel to Italy on a regular basis. And this has nothing to do with Italian food. It's just really really bad. Last time I ordered the Carbonara pasta. I had to send it out. It was uneatable, so they changed it for a bolognese. The very untasty ground meet swam in a watery sauce. I just paid, left and went to another restaurant instead. 

The real problem is that a few years ago. This was a really good place. Expensive, yes. But the food was good. This last year it has been horrible. So Im actually giving up now. Wont go back.
