Pastas were wonderful, Thurs night pastas specials are great to try so many. Appetizers are also great - the zucchini salad and the burrata with prosciutto. Wait staff was very friendly and courtesy. Highly recommend!!

The dinner started off with a few bumps. We had a reservation and were told it would be a 20 minute wait unless we wanted to eat outside on a humid Miami night. The Restaurant itself is quite small. We decided to have wine at...More

Intimate and inviting is the space. Comfortable and upscale at the same time. And surprisingly spectacular! Maybe the best chicken dish in history! Wonderful flavors. The veal that my friend ordered looked sensational. We had a few Italian wines, and everything came together remarkably well....More

This is one of our favorite places for Italian in South Florida. Go for the Chef's menu, but select the veal Parm for the main. Everything is really great, but comfortable with no pretense.

This is a great little find in South Beach that puts out very good Italian food. The restaurant is on the small side with a few outdoor tables. We Uber'd so parking was not an issue. We had reservations and were seated within 5-10 minutes...More

My husband (a native Florentine) enjoyed our meal at Macchialina. He’s tough to please when it comes to eating Italian food here in the US and Maccialina passed the taste test. The atmosphere is lively if bordering on loud so don’t go for a quiet...More

Rustic Italian Cuisine from James Beard Semifinalist Chef Michael Pirolo. Macchialina is an energetic, casual Italian taverna featuring the bold, seasonally inspired cooking. The recipe is simple, clean flavors, fresh ingredients & rustic accents. The 70-seat establishment emits a warm, inviting and hip ambiance that feels as if it has been plucked from the streets of New York City. The dining room is adorned with antique brick walls, cozy, tufted leather banquettes and handcrafted wood tables. Macchialina's lively bar is the perfect spot to enjoy a Negroni and snacks or a full meal.
