Meatballs were amazing, but I like to be able to taste my food. All the dishes are overloaded with so much sauce, it's impossible to appreciate the main ingredient in the dish.

We have been going to Crust for years because we know how great EVERYTHING IS! No other way to say it! But tonight was another example of excellence, after the waitress brought the food to our table she came back a few minutes later and she told my daughter that the chef said that he was preparing her plate again because it didn’t meet his expectations. We can see the passion that chef Klime has for always serving the best to all his customers. Kudos to him and Anita!

Has been better. Seafood pasta excellent but tuna unacceptably small portion, a platter of vegetables, not properly prepared. We expect more than 50% from Crust.They could put bread and olive oil on the table also. We will go back again. We know what the kitchen is capable of. Crust has to be consistent.

Third visit to Crust and once again simply outstanding! By now we have learned that one entree is enough for 2-3 persons. Never never order one entree per person. Can’t wait to return. Our Compliments to the Chef and wife team...AMAZING! Great food, value and service.

The hostess was very kind and energetic, she seated us quickly and gave us options too. Our waitress was also kind and I never had to ask for more water as my cup was rarely allowed to be half full. Additionally, the waitress would consistently ask to remove unused items from the table to prevent a clutter. Any questions me or my date asked she answered with confidence and enthusiasm. All in all the waitress had done her job perfectly. As for the food I had ordered a “build your own pizza” and I chose to put fried calamari, pepperoni, and mozzarella on my pizza and it was magically tasteful. The environment of the restaurant is romantic enough for a date and also lively enough to go with a group of friends or family. 10/10 will come back again whenever. possible.

We choose Crust after seeing it on Trip Advisor and another website. We also watched a clip of a local news piece on it and the owners Anita and her husband Klime and quite frankly came because of that! We weren’t disappointed. Anita is warm, welcoming and full of personality and the food was great! Have the shrimp cakes to start and everything else should be shared as the portions are huge! We would definitely go back again. The valet is a plus because of where the restraint is located.

I have been to Italy numerous times and I was pleasantly shocked that this restaurant far exceeded the Italian restaurants in Italy and elsewhere. Loudjline served us and she was very attentive and friendly - great service! The owners are top notch - Anita, one of the owners, welcomed us right away and was so kind. True Macedonian hospitality, you just meet and you feel like you are at home. Anita's husband is the head chef who trained in Italy, his culinary skills are unbelievable. Everything we ordered was the best we have ever had and I have dined at many high class restaurants all over the world. It's a 5+ star restaurant, with 5+ food and service but without the snobby attitudes and small portions. Best restaurant I have ever been too.
I highly recommend the shrimp cakes!! They were to die for. We also had pizza, salmon with risotto, and calamari- all were delicious and large portions. You can tell all of their food is made with the highest quality ingredients and with love. I will come here again, and again! Thank you to the entire team for such a great dining experience.

I am a major foodie with an affinity for NYC Italian and honestly, this restaurant is right up there with the best. From the moment you walk in and are met with the unbelievable smell of basil, cheese, and sweet sauce, to the incredible food, great customer service, and “close” with complimentary port wine - this place is legitimate. It put Miami food on the scene for me. Love.
