Osteria Del Teatro
Outstanding! Food, service, ambience all perfect. Celebrated a 75th birthday that night and the restaurant was more than accommodating.
Although we love this restaurant and visit it every time we come to Miami, this time it was disappointing. Service was poor, glasses were always empty. We were not offered the day’s special, unlike the table next to us. In the past, waiters were eager to accommodate and actually we were suggested modifications to all the plates. This time we were told flat out that they couldn’t modify anything, not even switch one type of pasta to another. We were not offered dessert and had to request it. Obviously we were not offered an expresso or coffee, in an Italian restaurant!!!. This is very sad because as I said, we used to love the place and recommended it to everyone. Now we will think twice next time.
Had dinner here tonight. Everything was excellent!! I would def recommend this place...
Great place with good food and excellent service. Very attentive staff and great recommendations on food and drink.
The best meal we have had during our 7 day visit to south beach. It takes a lot to impress me because I am a very good cook and I was impressed. I had the sea bass and my husband had a pasta with bolanase sauce made with filet I would and have recommended this restaurant to others I have sent at least 10 people who I have met at our hotel to this restaurant. Loved it and will return There were lots of locals there which indicates to me it’s a great restaurant
We come here at least once whenever we are in Florida. It has been wonderful for many years. We had wonderful knowledgeable service, The table next to us had a different server. It was also their first visit to this truly wonderful restaurant. Sadly, the confusion with which they were served is likely to make it their last. We will be back!
Osteria is by far the best Italian restaurant in town . My family and I been eating there since it opened . We are never disappointed . The food is fresh and delicious . They understand the key to good cooking is judicious use of butter . From the very tasty bread to their wonderful desserts , the menu is outstanding .
This is of our favorite restaurants in the world. Rafael treats us like family. We know it will be a wonderful night anytime we come here.
Overall great food and service by our waiter. Since the restaurant had a great selection, we wanted to try multiple selections, and our waiter gave us a great dining experience.
Meal was great.
Good food, good service, lovely atmosphere. Polite and mindful waiters to make sure your entire meal goes well. The lobster mango is highly recommended. I ask for it every time I visit. All pastas are superb. The only concern I had was withe the rack of lamb - it needed more oomph and was bland, but plentiful. Will always return when I visit. Reliable food, service, and great atmosphere.
Fine Italian dining in elegant surroundings. Very professional staff and excellent service
Recommended dining inside for the full experience
We keep coming back for co-owners, Maitre D’ Gilbert Gonzalez’s hospitality and Chef Martin Perez’s Consistently excellent homemade pastas and seafood specials like the pappardelle con astice and the homemade desserts
Estuvo todo muy bien. Los platos que pedimos cumplieron con nuestra expectativa. La atención fue muy buena
Carlos and Rafael are simply amazing and not to mentioned the owner who is always go above and beyond to accommodate you.
Rodrigo and Clive
Food fresh and amazing , portions enough for 2 .
Been going here for over 20 years , never let me down yet ..
We had a great dinner at Osteria Del Teatro. We were celebrating my husband and brother-in-law's birthdays. After our original reservation was cancelled (at another establishment), Osteria was able to get us in last-minute - and they were great. The service was attentive and helpful (we had several questions about the dishes and their advice was spot-on). The food, itself, was flavorful and delicious - and, in a few cases (the chicken parmesan), came in huge portions. We had a wonderful birthday dinner and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Not the same as before when they were at old location. I probably will not return
Jefe de sala muy simpático, servicio eficiente aunque olvidaron el pan. Las ensaladas son ridículamente pequeñas y poco elaboradas para su precio. La pasta muy buena, pero a precio desorbitado. Tal vez sea la tónica en la zona Southbeach...
Buenos postres muy tradicionales y trato agradable. La cuenta elevada, probablemente al nivel de los restaurantes de la zona. En general, la experiencia fue agradable, el servicio ayuda a que así sea
Beautiful setting accompanied by excellent food!
It was a pleasure to dine at Osteria Del Teatro! The food was delicious and the service excellent. We were a table of 4- each ordered different main courses and all were outstanding. We all plan to return....
Always best quality and originality.
Been visiting this great restaurant over twenty years and never a less than outstanding experience.
I would highly recommended this restaurant. The food was delicious, authentic Italian. The service was exceptional!
Everything was lovely! From the food to the service, we had a great meal and experience here.
Excellent food and service.
We always come here when in Miami. Ask for abalcony table.
Terrible service. Waited 45 min at least for food that never came out. Left it was that bad.
Second time at this restaurant in a week. Such a difference! Oh, not in the food, which was very good. However, we waited an hour, at least, for our dinner. Water glasses not refilled. Waiter came by once after about 1/2 hour to say food would be soon. We spoke to manager. He said he could not refuse long time customer who wanted table for 15-20. We were seated after them, causing delay. Also, noise level was extremely high. Hard to have conversation. We were going to sit outside until customer asked waitress for ashtray, so smoking would be problem.
Manager kindly comped us desserts and after dinner drink.
Absolutely OUTSTANDING service and food! Felt like royalty while dining and we will be returning next time we go to Miami. Just WOW!!!
The food tasted excellent. Wonderful experience. Enjoyed so much we are bringing friends back tomorrow night!
Favorite Miami Beach restaurant!
I have dined here several times over the last few years and the atmosphere is always great in a good setting. The food is well prepared and the portion sizes are on the larger size which many appreciate. Our last visit came on a rainy night so the restaurant was jam packed as everyone was eating local. Despite the crowd it didn't take too long for our reserved table to be ready. The wait staff were incredibly busy but did well to serve each table patiently and professionally.
Had a great meal with my wife on vacation. It was raining so we ate inside. I had pasta with lobster, wife had pasta with crab... both were outstanding! We also had a couple great apps. The bread was average but everything else about meal was outstanding. The staff hustles, probably could use another server or two but you could tell they all hustled. The owner (I am assuming) checked on all the patrons to make sure they enjoyed meal, which is always a good touch. I look forward to coming back the next time I am in South Beach!
Our second time at Osteria Del Teatro, a very good Italian restaurant just one block away from South Beach's Ocean Drive. Last time we sat outside on the raised terrace at the front of the restaurant. This time, the weather was not so good, so it was inside. Again loved the great Italian food - perfectly cooked pastas and sauces. Just a little odd that for a restaurant that is relatively up-market, there were two TV screens - one with pets and people doing the oddest things, and one with Guys & Dolls. Both on silent, but with sub-titles, so not really that intrusive, but still odd for a restaurant where the service, food and vibe is otherwise so good. Of course, we'll go again - but fingers crossed for better weather to enjoy that outside terrace again!
I must stop when you’re in South Beach. All very fresh ingredients with an excellent menu and very knowledgeable staff. Come back to Miami every year and it’s a must stop on my trip.
we love this restaurant for service ambiance, etc...
We think they should should throw their old menu out. Serve only specials to the highest quality & maybe a few classics but with all the choices they have nothing is prepared that great. Less choices forces chef & staff to focus on flavor & excellence.
our meal was just ok, for foodies this was disappointing
This restaurant has been in Miami Beach for many years for good reasons - excellent food and excellent service. Although a bit on the expensive side, they offer a significant number of pastas and specials. The eggplant appetizer was excellent as were the Osso bucco and porcini mushroom truffle pasta specials. The salmon was grilled nicely and the black squid ink pasta with curry sauce is a nice change from the standard dishes. Our server was experienced, knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. Overall we had an enjoyable and not rushed dinner. Would highly recommend.
Carlos was our server and he was outstanding, we are coming again, the food was delicious the ambiance, highly recommended.
Third time dinning but this was first time at this location as previous two experiences at former location.
The former location was small quaint and felt more special.
Food was good. Wife got a pasta dish that she said was tasty and serving looked filling. I ordered shrimp scampi style and was 3 shrimp that lacked is scampi seasonings, sides portions ex. green beans were very small. I left hungry.
Taste was good. I'll order a spaghetti or pasta dish next time.
Excellent cuisine — pasta, veal dishes (parm, Ossip bucco) were very good. Ambience a little tight, might be in need of an upgrade, as do the bread offerings. Good experience overall.
