One of the best dinners on our trip! Seafood Linguini was amazing! The authentic Italian bread & thin breadsticks added to our enjoyment! Save room for the Ricotta Cheesecake - perfect texture and not too sweet. As a bonus, they have Early Bird specials! Don't miss this great restaurant.

I really love Cafe Prima Pasta. You have your choice of inside or outdoor dining & you can even hang at the bar and have a nice drink. It's extremely popular with the locals here in Miami Beach, so make sure that you call for reservations in advance. Otherwise, you may find yourself waiting at the bar for a bit.... More

Been visiting this restaurant since it opened years ago. Moved out of the area and decided to go back since we hadn't been their in some time. The place hasn't skipped a beat! Food still great, staff still warm, friendly and welcoming. We felt like we never stopped coming because of our move out of the area. Kudos to everyone... More

The food here is good, but the restaurant itself is crowded--too many tables for its size. Because of this, it's a little loud, but it is popular with locals. The service was very good. Taking a taxi /Uber/Lyft is best due to the very limited parking available.

We stage our boat from North Florida to Miami for 3 months each winter. We enjoy the change of pace and scenery and most especially the wide variety of restaurants. I wrote a review of Cafe Prima Pasta when we first discovered this great bar and restaurant a number of years ago.I tend to judge good Italian eateries by their... More

Only a mile from where we were staying in Normandy village and rated in top 20 Miami restaurants on trip adviser. Not disappointed. Went on sat night at 6.30 and people were already queuing for tables. We were told it would be a 20 min wait but within ten they had showed up to our table. I had the crab... More

We went between 5:00-6:00. They run a reduced price menu at this time. We noticed that the portions got smaller and the prices were higher. The food is very good I think we will go later and try the regular menu. Everything we have had here is very good.

A very busy evening. No choice of table (No Probs.) Waiting staff very patient and attentive, Excellent wine, very good food with a warm ambience. Only criticism the 'Italian' dishes could be more authentic. Went back for a more intimate dinner a few days later and had a bar top 'table' and it was really great, found some authentic Italian...

Me and my family was here two time when we visited Miami. We really enjoyed this restaurant. The food was excellent and the staff was very professional and nice. The pricing was average but you get high quality food compaired to the pricing. I really think that this is a "need to visit" restaurant in the Miami area.
