It’s so good!!! Anita and her whole team are amazing, so sweet. Also the place is so cute, and the music is so calm to get you really comfortable. The food is really good, and it’s a pretty big portion. Would recommend sharing with someone else. Is a little pricey but defined worth it in my opinion.

Perfect Combination – “Punto Finale”
I heard so much about Crust that I decided to take my wife there for our date night last Friday. The restaurant is not best strategically located. However, the valet parking at $6 is an excellent “trade-off”. So, don’t waste your time trying to find a parking spot and still pay that much for 2 hours when you can have valet parking for the same amount.
Let’s start with the service. It was impeccable from the beginning to the end. The Owner/ Host was so friendly that you feel at home right off the bat. The waitress (Aycan) was always smiling and very patient to answer my wife’s questions.
The food, yes, the food! it was indeed one of our best Italian meals outside of Italy in the last 10 years. Kudos to the Chef/ Owner, who paradoxically, is not even Italian. The food was prepared and served with “Love & Passion”. The grilled Octopus salad and the Seafood Linguine were just “Amazing”. In fact, even the Pizza was extraordinarily great. The size of the portions was not a surprise based on previous reviews. We had a great bottle of Spanish wine (Ramon Bilboa 2014 Tempranillo Reserva) at a reasonable price.
I highly recommend Crust to all my Italian foodies. You can’t go wrong and you won’t break the bank.
By the way, the 2 hours restriction is annoying but is not a deterrent because I don’t think it is strictly reinforced.

From the minute you walk in the door you feel the family atmosphere. The service is fantastic and the food is excellent. The portion size is huge and you probably will have to take some home. I wish they were open for lunch because I would be there 3 times a week.

The restaurant was fairly easy to get to, and they were nice about updating our reservation to an earlier time. The food was decent, but the portions are huge! We couldn’t take the rest home since we were staying at a hotel, so unfortunately a lot of food was waisted. The seats are close together, and it was pretty loud. The staff was fantastic and have nothing bad to say about the service.

Every once in a rare while, a restaurant gets it right on all fronts. Such is the case for Crust. The food is reliably excellent, matched with a level of hospitality and service seldom found these days. Another attribute is that you needn’t spend a small fortune to enjoy fine dining and a bottle of wine.

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.

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!

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.
