One of the most authentic and exciting restaurants to open in Miami Beach in ages, this ultra-friendly restaurant has made fast friends of the neighborhood around Sunset Harbor. The young staff is exceptionally knowledgeable and helpful. Highlights on the lengthy menu of rustic dishes include spaghetti bottarga, orecchiette with wild boar sausage and nearly melted broccoli di rabe pesto. Salt-crusted branzino, prepared in the wood-burning oven, is a masterpiece. The fantastic, value-priced wine list is always a winner. Best to go with a crowd and share a platter of thinly sliced meats and cheeses with vegetables roasted in the wood-burning oven. Order a plate of crackly rosemary carasatu bread, too. Desserts, like the millefoglie with nutella and pastry cream, are as addictive as this new hot spot.

I loved this restaurant and the food was delicious. I have been here before to celebrate an anniversary and we returned again now to celebrate our son’s upcoming marriage. Although they didn’t acknowledge this, as they do in other restaurants, we still enjoyed delicious fish, lamb, and wine. I will definitely return!

We had a great evening at Sardinia. Authentic great food, excellent wines and a fine ambiance. We had the octopus salad as appetizer and paella seafood and black fettuccine with seafood as main dishes. This is our favourite Italian restaurant when we will return to Miami.

Really nice restaurant, convenient location, service was just ok, food experience overall good, unfortunately the spaghetti not good at all (when asked if they were made by the Italian chef, they told us he wasn’t there that night).
I am a huge fan of bottarga, and If I go to a “Sardinian” restaurant, I expect to eat spaghetti with bottarga properly, doesn’t matter how much do they cost me, but I want my spaghetti to taste ‘bottarga’. More sorrowful then disappointed, the management is clearly doing a great job and this restaurant is a great Italian experience, but guys please work on those spaghetti!

Ps: you want great spaghetti with bottarga in Miami? Try at Salumeria 104, till now the best truly Italian food I had in town!

Nice wine cellar ambience. Guanciale wrapped grilled quail over broccoli rabe was superb. Sardinian flat bread with honey and goat cheese was sublime. Both the whole branzino baked in a salt crust and the fregola seafood “paella” were wonderful. A Sardinian red and a bit too young Barolo accompanied the dinner. Friendly and efficient service.

We learned about this restaurant on Open Table and liked the menu. We made a reservation for our last night in Miami Beach and what a great way to end our trip. We started with a bottle of Roero Arneis by Batasiolo. (Started because before the end of the meal we had ordered a second one.) Highly recommend. We started with a couple of appetizers including the castelvetrano Sicilian olives and mozzarella tasting which both pair well with white wine. Their cheese is homemade and each type was more delicious than the next. We tried their salumi board as well prior to our entree. It was very delicate and the prosciutto di parma was outstanding. My husband ordered the special dish that night which was a grilled snapper in a wine sauce. He loved it. I went with the polpettine and broccoli rabe and truly enjoyed it as well. Highly recommend Sardinia Enoteca if you are in the Miami Beach area.

Wine list has slipped down a notch tho. They use to have a very strong cave. Not too hard to remedy.

We eat out a lot. Miami Beach is known for bad service...no sense of urgency etc. we were seated and three tables seated after us were serviced before us. The server said he didn’t know we were his table. (Not sure if it was because we were 2 women.) the food was less than average. The mozzarella bar was not impressive. The burrata was sour and stringy. For a Sunset Harbor icon, we were less than impressed. We will not return especially with a restaurant like Stiltsville Fish Bar across the street who has amazingly sickening food!

Our third visit to Sardinia, Yes, we love it! We started with the Grand Tasting from the mozzarella bar and added tomatoes and prosciutto. Our wonderful waitress Sandra D. patiently explained what each cheese was. It was so delicious and was enough for 3 of us...I will order that again! Don't hesitate to visit Sardinia!

We have happily eaten at Sardinia several times, and last weekend we brought some friends to celebrate their recent marriage. The food was excellent as usual, especially the paella with light-as-air coucous and the baked artichokes. Our only sour note: For the first time, we had reserved outside seating, and I would not recommend this. It's no fault of Sardinia's, but the tables on at least one side of the restaurant (the right side as you face the door) sometimes are subject to an unpleasant smell, likely wafting from the city's drains. As it was a busy Saturday night, there were no available inside seats to move to. I don't know how often this happens, but I wouldn't take the chance again!
