Everything was wonderful. We had excellent garlic bread and reorder; antipasto; and scrumptious pear and cheese ravioli,topped off by a delicious sorbet ball concoction the chef made a special seafood and pasta marinara dish for our friend, which she loved. We have been fans of this restaurant since it opened over 3 1/2 years ago, and are pleased it has achieved a nice following. The owners are charming and gracious young Venezuelan brothers with another relative heading up the kitchen.

Great family run place; very welcoming and unassuming. Very good service, they will try to accommodate special requests (last time there one of the specials was risotto with shrimp, I cannot eat shellfish, they happily substituted with chicken).

Great hidden gem. Fast service. Great food. Very attentive and friendly staff. Family owned establishment. A welcome break from the "chains". Quiet location. You can tell ther are lots of "regulars" there, which speaks to the quality of food and service offered there. Only issue was with certain regulars there, that seem to forget they arent at home. Lack of restaurant etiquette . But, thats has NOTHING to do with the restaurant. Just a warning to those to not be surprised by the lack of boundaries these regulars have. A dirty look amd theyre good though. Will definitely go back!!

Lovely Italian ambiance in a little strip mall. If you didn't search online or on OpenTable, you would miss it and that would be a shame! Very courteous, friendly, yet non-intrusive family owned/operated restaurant with excellent service, delicious food, and homemade desserts by the Italian Mama! I had the lobster ravioli (I never clean my plate and I ate it ALL!) My husband had the chicken parmesan (unlike any other as they pound the chicken thin and the coating is thin and deliciously golden). The homemade garlic parmesan bread rolls are tender/crisp and melt-in-your mouth amazing! My mouth is watering while I write this. If you're in the area, or even if you're further away from the restaurant, it is definitely worth the trip!

Returned for lunch. Still great food. Just one waitress-she must have been overwhelmed although there weren’t many tables with customers. She requires a lot more training. Manager doesn’t think so... so sad.

There is not one negative to record about this wonderful restaurant. What a gem. Wine to desserts. All was amazing. It's a place we will return to again and again. The food was so amazing, I even tipped the kitchen staff. Our server was a kind young man who turns out, is coowner with h iui s brother. His mother makes all their fabulous desserts. It's a must for us every trip to Miami now.

We love this place. It doesn't look like much, tucked inside a strip-mall on Southwest Eighth Street, but it truly is a special restaurant. The service is top-notch without being obsequious and the food is memorable in all the right ways. Dishes are thoughtfully prepared to order and delivered to the table piping hot. It is rare when a restaurant gets everything right. Red Carpet is one of those rare gems.

This is a hidden gem. Located in a bad looking strip mall near home depot calle ocho, and with a name like Red Carpet, you would never think this is a great Italian restaurant. The food is amazing! Ask for the fig salad (not on the menu) it is really good. We like to order it as an appetizer to share. The crab raviolis are perfection. Actually all their raviolis are !!!! If you are not into pasta they have chicken dishes and meat like veal scallopini with mash potato that are also good. The pannacotta for dessert is a must. The service is excellent. This restaurant is family owned and you can see how dedicated they are to offer great food. Prices are great specially when you compare them to all the bad and mediocre restaurants we have in miami now charging as if their food is rated 3 Michelin stars !

Amazing food, definitely unexpected for the random strip mall location.
Fresh fish specials, great pasta dishes, and thin pounded chicken and veal. Flavors were perfect on each dish For our party of 7! Great garlic rolls too.
Will be back soon!!
