Vacation dinner perfect medicine for relieving stress from flight in with American Airlines. Service was great! Food was very high quality from calamari and meatball appetizer. Our main courses of lobster ravioli, pasta bolognese were well seasoned fresh and great tasting. For deserts the tiramisu, chocolate cake were also good! The gelato plate we shared and we felt it Terrific!

Fantastic! Had lunch here and it was so good that we girls needed to try for dinner. Our server, Daniele, was wonderful. His knowledge of the menu (including wines) was very helpful in our picking the best wines for each course. I would highly recommend. The attention to service is made it that much more wonderful. I’d eat here any time I’m in Miami for business and/or pleasure.

Great fun place. Food is really pretty good. Pizza probably best we saw in Miami. Service staff super cheerful, almost grateful to have of us with our kids. It is bracingly loud though. We were shouting over the music to hear one another. We got used to it though. We'd go back.

From the cocktails and wine list through appetizers and dinner, we were very pleased. Had been here on our last trip to Miami Beach and it was as amazing as we remembered. Carmine was fabulous and gave us the perfect amount of space and assistance so we felt relaxed and not rushed. We chose to dine indoors again since it is May in Miami and we were dressed for a nice dinner, not in shorts, etc. Miami Beach prices are similar to NYC, but everything lived up to expectations. Nice conversation level noise with occasional outbursts from the party of 12 in the back. Nice aperitivo selection - we chose limoncello to replace dessert. We will definitely be back.

We were pleasantly surprised with Dolce specially for a Birthday meal celebration. The place was intimate and inviting. Most of the patrons were dressed casually however the ambiance is upscale enough that if you were to wear something fancier you still would not feel out of place. I had the Scialatielli All' Amalfitana which is a medley of various shell fish and shrimp in a white sauce that was simply exquisite. My fiance was pleased with his order of the Lobster ravioli. We had the Teeling old fashioned which if you are a fan of smoky drinks this would definitely be your cup of tea. We wrapped all up with a chocolate cake slice and a caramel ice cream--it was decadent and SO WORTH the extra minutes on a treadmill.
