My boss had our Christmas party here and we all fell in love with this Italian treat. The decor was beautiful inside and outside and they had Christmas lights and ribbons in the outside patio. The hostess was very bubbly and sweet and seated our party of 60. We had the private elevated dining room which was great and we also had our own servers. The salads were portioned well, the stuffed mushrooms were tastey, and my Salmon was cooked to perfection with the most delicious sauce. The cocktail prices were reasonable and the service was quick and pleasant considering it was busy and we had 60 people. Oh, and don't forgot to try the Vesuvius cake! Would definitely recommend this place and will be back soon with my family!
My fiancé and I had lunch here last week. It was my second time here and his first time. Our server, Tom, was excellent and very attentive to our needs! We had the bruschetta, the fried mozzerella, and a delicious spaghetti and sundried tomato dish that I'm having trouble recalling the name of...all the food was excellent! The pasta was al dente, everything tasted fresh and was well prepared. I love the atmosphere of the restaurant. The old music and the lanterns and green curtains really make the place cozy. It was only 2pm when we went but it felt like a date! I would always recommend Carmine's to any man who wants to impress a lady!
Had lunner with elderly mom and 10 yo son. Atmosphere classy traditional with just the right touch of modern. diverse staff, everyone we interacted with was professional... We were lucky to get the chef's table, awesome view of the place, cozy in the right place. Food had a homemade taste. Carpaccio was well served, Risotto was comfy food fit for a small entree. Mom had chicken parm, tasted as good as it looked. Wil go again.
Wow!!!! Salvatore D. Italian Cusine is a restaurant you must go and try. It is fantastic. Formerly known as IL Piatto Italiano Restuarant that was located in Kendale on 137 Ave. Salvatore D. has authentic Italian food, homemade and fresh and prepared to order. Amazing atomosphere, cozy, and elegant all at the same time. Service is close to perfect, which is hard to find nowadays. I recommend this place and can't wait to go again.
I ate here with my family while visiting Miami this Christmas. I ordered the fried calamari and the spaghetti carbonara and they were both wonderful! The waiter was not very keen on when the waters needed to be refilled, but other than that the service was nice. The view was astounding and I was shocked at how well they transformed the area from what it used to be in the late 90's. I would definitely go again.
Went here the other week to try it out with a friend and then came back again for my office's party. It's exceptional! The food is absolutely amazing and the attentiveness to detail and to the patrons is unequaled. They couldn't have been more accomodating to us. The location is also exquisite. Il Gabbiano stands alone as easily one of the best Miami as to offer and I welcome it with open arms!
I visited Carmine's for my wife birthday and I was very pleasantly surprise of such delicious Italian food right in Kendall .The service was fantastic,the view outside was absolutely beautiful ,and lastly the manager knew it was my wife birthday and they actually had a opera singer sing her a song (beautiful morning) it was a magical night indeed,highly recommend it.
Awesome! Yes, I read from the other reviewers that the place is a bit noisy, but that is Italians for you. I am married to one, I should know. But they are down to earth people who love to have fun, cook and eat, and be loud! The food is delicious! I have never eaten at a restaurant where I eat slowly just to savor every bite! The service is great!
This place is great. The food is excellent. The decor very warm and beautiful. The owner is the same as Il Piatto Italiano, that used to be on 137 Kendall Drive. I had the seafood pasta, and it was just delicious. The Garlic rolls....mmmm Definetly recommend it if you would like to have a nice italian dinner with friends, family or just by yourself.
I frequent the restaurant on a regular basis. The Food is excellent and the Service is always great. I enjoy the Wine Selection and home made deserts are amazing. The Decor is really Nice and I really enjoy the overall comfortness of the restaurant. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for some Authentic Homemade Pasta and Deserts.
