This is a first stop go to always when we are all together as a family in Miami Beach. (Southern end). The menu changes regularly, there is always fresh fish and vegetables, and very cheery wait staff.

Do not waste your time or money with all the amazing food that the south beach area has to offer. Service was poor and the food was similar to a lean cuisine. Flavorless, dry, etc. I am angry that we wasted our time and money.

It's a nice place close to Lincoln Road and with Parking space. The menu has several plates that include meatballs. This time we ordered meatball pizza and meatball salad. The homemade tomato sauce is very tasteful! The food was very good! We did not try...More

Macaluso's routinely has available several different types of Decco pasta (served al dente). Decco is certainly their pasta of choice. I do not recall ever seeing "gluten free" listed on the written (or verbal) menu (but I... More
