Pies such as these propelled CRUST onto the Thrillist Best Pizza guide.

The food was delicious. Very generous portions. Our only regret was we didn’t come hungry enough. We will definitely be back next time we are in Miami.
Amazing food!! Huge plates...so your $ are totally well spend!!
Restaurant changed size of the plate (large pizza not available anymore) and waiter entered into an unnecessary dispite with us saying that restaurant had never served that pizza size.
Owner clarified they did in the past but are not offering it anymore.
This place never disappoints. Everything about this restaurant is amazing. I have been there 7 times and I am always impressed
Truly one of the best restaurants I’ve been to. The first time I came here I met the owner Anita, who was extremely welcoming and kind. That day I forgot my shopping bag beneath the table and I left close to closing time, and was supposed to fly out of
Florida the next day so she figured out my # using open table, called me and waited 45 minutes after closing for me to drive back and get my things. Since then I’ve recommended the place to everyone I know visiting Miami, and they all rave about it. The food, the atmosphere, and of course Anita! She is wonderful and the food is incredible!
Everything was great! Food, service, and experience!!! Will be back ..... soon!
excellent experience...look forward to another time!
Inside was a bit loud, so we moved to a table outside which was perfect. Staff was very kind and helpful. Food was good, big portions.
Great food--super large portions on the chicken and pasta dishes. Really love the white pizza with spinach, ricotta and garlic. Worth the drive from Ft. Lauderdale-where we come from every time! Chicken Parm will feed a family of 4!
The restaurant is very cool, with really good food. The service was very good. Only frustration is that we have young kids and the waiter told us the kitchen wouldn’t want to make any changes to the menu — even things like sauce on the side made the waiter nervous. Eventually we were told the chef would make a “one time accommodation” to plain pasta for one of our kids. Other than that everyone loved it, we were just surprised about the lack of flexibility especially because we were there early before the dinner rush.
Me and my girl friends went on your last day in Miami and the food was amazing and so was the service! The portions are very large so you could easily share we made the mistake of all ordering our own food but we were able to take the left overs home. Highly recommend for any night it’s super good and amazing service.
We sat outside. Best lasagna I've ever had. Hostess (owner I think?) who sat us was extremely friendly and helpful. Definitely will eat there again.
This is the kind of restaurant you dream about or see in the moves. The hostess/co-owner is amazing with memory and attention. The staff is very well trained and articulate.
The food is well prepared and sumptuous.
The waiters are very able.
We’re never disappointed when we eat at Crust !! The best service, and the food is awesome.
HUGE portions too !!
Great food great service huge portions
This is one of the best pizzas I’ve tried. Ingredients are fresh, the crust is crisp and thin and it’s not greasy. So really delicious. We enjoyed the service and also wines are really good
The food was excellent and so was the service. Our only complaint, it’s so noisy that we lost our voices at the end of dinner
Amazing! The food was so good that we ate every bite and then ordered some take out as well. The Meatball pizza is out of this world. We also tried the lasagna this time, and it was amazing. Crust is always on our list of places to visit when we’re in Miami. Thanks for the great food, awesome energy, and outstanding management.
As a local, I can say that this is one of the best restaurants in Miami. Everything about the experience was great - starting with our waiter, Julio, who guided us thru the menu and gave us great suggestions. The food was top notch with generous portions. The limoncello cake was out of this world. I loved that the manager or owner gave us both a complimentary port after dinner. I can't wait to return.
Anita the owner and Alex our waitress were phenomenal! Upon arrival on a Thursday night at 8pm valet was only $6 with no line no waiting. Once we entered the restaurant Anita greeted us with a warm and sincere welcome, addressed me by my first name and sat us immediately. It almost felt as if we knew each other for years. I can't remember the last time we were greeted in this manner at a restaurant. Alex was extremely courteous and made an effort to go above and beyond from start to finish. She was awesome! The food was delicious! We had the pinot grigio, garlic breads (best ever for me), pan fried mozzarella, truffled pizza (not crazy about the mountain of arugula piled on top), and chicken Milanese. All large portions. In addition, they do not fry with peanut oil which was very important because a member of our party has a peanut allergy. Upon leaving Anita offered us a dessert liquor on the house (shocker) and made it a point to say goodbye to everyone. Valet on the way out was also a breeze! If you're a fan of old fashion hospitality by a staff who genuinely cares and want a delicious and excellent dinning experience then you must make it a point to dine at CRUST. We will definitely be back! Thanks again Anita and Alex!!!!!
ANA, the owner is the best card presentation of the place, she is simply adorable. Ivan, our waiter, was exceptional. He recommended us what to try for the first time. Great place !
Amazing as always. Food was fresh and the hospitality great. Can’t wait to go back again.
My wife and I went for dinner to the Crust. We absolutly can recommend that restaurant. Very engaged owners ensure that you will have a great dinning experience. Our waiter - Alex - she was great. Good recommendation for food and wine. We had a mediterian salad as a starter and Linguini Carbonara and traditional Peperoni Pizza as main dish. The final was a homemade Tiramisu. Everything was very delicious and freshly prepared. Be prepared for very big portions. We couldn't finish the main course.
Excellent food, excellent service, a little bit noise.
The place was lovely and the service rendered was outstanding. Our server Alex was superb and very attentive. Owner welcomed us and came by to over complementary drinks. Owner also thanked us for coming upon completion of our meal.
Exceeded our expectations!
Our server Jose was outstanding
Now the food... the mushrooms / truffle oil risotto was all the reviews I read said it was, the portions are HUGH one plate can easily feed two hearty appetites DELICIOUS!!!
Definitely recommendation Crust
Can't go wrong. Go for the food not the area! Sitting outside was less noisy than inside and pleasant. Its like you are at home in your backyard with great food!
I can't think of a better place to eat when I'm in town. From our salad, entree, and even dessert, the food was flavorful and the portions were more than enough for us to share. I highly recommend this restaurant. You will not leave hungry!
Excellent customer service! Felt welcome from the moment we opened the door! Our server Alex was AMAZING! Food portions were huge and so so yummy!
Can't say enough good things about our dining experience at Crust. The service was friendly and professional. The food was exceptional. We had the garlic rolls, a side of meatballs, one order each of chicken picata and pasta carbonara. Huge portions! Was able to eat a whole meal of leftovers the next day. Yummy. The owner was sweet enough to stop by our table to welcome us and wish my niece a happy birthday. Will be going back.
We celebrated our anniversary at Crust and had a phenomenal experience. Anita greeted us at the door and ensured that we were treated very special. The food was absolutely amazing! Very generous portions, we had the Kale Salad, Garlic Rolls and a Shrimp Linguini dish (don't remember the exact name) followed by the Cannoli dessert. Everything was outstanding and the staff was very gracious and genuine.
We satisfy our winter Italian food fix by going to Crust each year. Food, service and wait staff are all exceptional. And at reasonable prices for Miami.
The food is incredible, the staff is as pleasant as can be, the service second to none. The value is hard to beat, BEST AROUND.
The Best Service and Food in Miami!
One of the most incredible restaurants ever, service was very quick and friendly and attentive. The owner comes out and talks to you and is very down to earth! Food was delicious and savory. Would recommend to anyone and I’m definitely coming back!
Great food great service great people top notch experience
Crust is the one place we recommend to friends without hesitation and enthusiastically. Every single time we leave raving about how delicious the food is and how incredible the service. We were delighted to celebrate as a family there for Valentines Day. Our kids are forever ruined and only want Seafood Risotto for dinner from now on. Absolutely top notch and the value is out of this world. Get there immediately!
Amazing food and great service!
Amazing ambience, delicious cuisine, impeccable service
Phenomenal experience...Everything wonderful!
