I am not one to write reviews but I had the best pizza at La Locanda in the South of Fifth neighborhood of Miami Beach.. Luca, the pizza chef, made this incredible "white" pizza - pears, gorgonzola cheese and basil. Thin, crispy crust which says a lot for Miami.....and I am not one for gorgonzola...I was in heaven! You have to go..Francesco or Massimo are the best in making you feel at home. And, the pizza...Mama Mia!! Needless to say, I ate the whole thing = it was that good...with a nice glass of red wine. The ambiance is nice and the staff top notch when in comes to service. Go...you will not be sorry! Prices are moderate...they won't break the bank.

We loved this restaurant! We spent a long time searching for somewhere to eat on South Beach that offered decent food for a decent price. We ended up eating here twice and both times got excellent food and service! I would recommend this place to anyone! Go and you won't be disappointed!

We ate here on a recent visit. A nice change from the greasy food of Ocean Drive and much quieter. Average Italian fare - pizza, pasta etc. They don't rush you and you could sit outside forever if you want.

Its a fairly typical simple Italian restaurant. Food is not fantastic, but its not bad either. Service is friendly and pleasant. Its not a place to go to celebrate, but its ok if you like Italian style food.

When we were there they had an entertainer who couldn´t sing and couldn´t play the guitar. He gave plenty of proof of both. According to the waiter it was a one off performance. I hope he was right.
