A laid-back Italian tavern popular for its seasonally inspired menu that combines traditional cooking methods with contemporary tastes
Rustic and homey, this off-the-beaten-path Italian is full of locals looking to escape the madness of South Beach. Luckily, they’ve found a place to do it where the laid-back vibe is totally authentic and the food is damn good, too. Antipasti include a creamy burrata cheese (locally made) served with pickled aubergine. A small pasta menu ticks all the right flavor notes (the short rib lasagna is a customer favorite).
Time Out tip: Macchialina won’t burn a hole in your pocket like other South Beach restaurants, but it doesn’t hurt save when you can. Book your table for Thursdays, when most of the homemade pasta dishes on the menu are priced at just $10 all night long. We won’t judge you for ordering seconds—or thirds.
