I think the layout is absolutely gorgeous and the fact that you can have brunch and lunch with such an amazing view is stunning. I feel we didn’t have good service there wasn’t much people there and the food was very basic I did not enjoy my sandwich and the waiter didn’t bother to ask if the meal was fine or if I wanted to swap my dish.

During our 1-week stay in Miami Beach we'd been to BiCe Cucina 3 times, mostly for drinks but the food was amazing as well. Highly recommend.

Food was really good. Wait staff was awesome. There was also a singer who apparently was trained in opera and classical guitar, and was unbelievable. A really nice night.


Best service, good food and service on ocean drive!!! Roberto, Dino, and Gean Luca was the best! Nice resultant


In all the years coming to South Beach, Food has always been hit or miss. Not now. BiCE Cucina at the newly opened Cardozo Hotel right on Ocean Drive. Thank u Rafael for an amazing meal. Truly authentic Italian food right down to the cappuccinos.


Came with my friends to have some drinks, the place is so good, food is amazing and drinks even better! Gianluca had our table and he was a really great waiter, recommend the place and the waiter!


Everything was excellent; the pizza, the salmon the ceviche the tuna. We were 5 friends and everyone enjoyed every single dish. The waiters and the manager very professional and friendly. One of the best italian restaurant in Miami

Great ravioli; and the live music is wonderful.

Absolutely the best service on south beach. It’s like home when you walk in. Every thing you order is beyond your expectations. Custom drinks, food and service are above reproach. Matteo is the best server ask for him by name. He was all over is and suspended us with amazing custom drinks.

Wow, amazing gnocchi and alfredo sauce. We fly all over the world and this just knocked off pasta pasta in Amsterdam for the best alfredo gnocchi in the world.. bacon was delicious on top also. Will 100% come back every time in Miami

In the Cardozo hotel, this restaurant has a full bar, indoor/outdoor seating and live music. Seating outside obviously gives a great view of Ocean Drive. The vibe is kinda sexy but not overwhelming. We needed a lighter and our waiter offered his without hesitation. Seating is comfortable and we felt relaxed both times we sat here. The drinks are nicely blended. The shots are stiff and straight. And the margherita pizza is warm and good. Ohhh and the apple pie with macchiato.... perfect!


Great Valentine meal. Server AAron was great. Great energy and great suggestions for Miami. Keep this guy as a front person. Made the great atmosphere even better.


This was a good place to eat breakfast and dinner. The staff are so friendly and the prices are very reasonable. A good wine selection and the food was well presented and tasty. You can sit outside and people watch whilst chilling out.


Aaron was great! Recommended great items, friendly service, and provided suggestions for things to do in the area. Food was delicious!! Atmosphere was awesome! Would recommend and eat here again. Homemade heart valentines lobster ravioli!

We stopped here after getting into South Beach around 10:30. The kitchen is only open until 11, but the bar is open, and a live guitarist just started. It's 75 degrees here (compared to 12 degrees in Cleveland). Waiters were friendly, but it took a while for them to take our drink order, and what seemed like forever b4 we got out 2 cocktails. My cucumber martini had the essence of fresh cucumber, and was very quaffable. His sidecar was very tasty. The staff appears to all be italian. (Good for an Italian Restaurant!) Due to service, and the fact that there are a million bars around, we probably won't be back. Note: we did not try the food.


Great vibe on Ocean. Had live music that added to the experience. Aaron took exceptional care of us. Checked on us at the right times and left us to ourselves at the right times. Highly recommended.


Aaron took care of us at the restaurant last night. The food was absolutely wonderful and Aaron’s service was stellar in every way-we can’t wait to come back and request Aaron as our server!


Breathtaking fish, lovely live music and awesome service - special thanks to Aaron our great waiter! Thanks for that beautiful evening


Perfect place for a romantic dinner! Excellent service, delicious food, especially the lobster-ravioli! (And also the teriyaki-salmon!) Nice live-music!

We stopped by this place since we're staying nearby for a quick lunch, and the menu looks promising. Overall, the food was just okay, and the fish was not super fresh. That alone doesn't normally warrant a 1-star rating, but what warranted this rating was after the waiter brought the bill, he pointed to the additional tip line to indicate that we should provide some tip. We double-checked that there was already a 18% service charge or tip added to the bill, so we thought that was sufficient and we paid the bill (we've been to many restaurants in/around South Beach area, and this seems to be the norm). Our waiter came by to pick up the paid bill, and upon seeing that there was no Additional tip, he said that the 18% service charge/tip is ALL for the restaurant, and so for our table, he gets NOTHING for the service he provided. This was surprising, so I asked him why the restaurant gets the 18% service charge instead of the waiter, and he said that's how it works around here. I said I've been to Miami many times, and visited many restaurants around here, and that's not how it's normally operated. Feeling like we're being scammed, I told the waiter that if it's true that the restaurant owner gets all of the 18% tip, then he should complain to his boss that he should get the tip since the restaurant owner didn't provide any service. The customer should NOT be expected to pay the tip TWICE!!! I will not patronize BICE Cucina on Ocean Drive again for 2 reasons: 1- If it's true that the restaurant or restaurant owner gets all of the tip instead of the deserving waiters/waitresses, then this is blatant exploitation, and I will not further contribute to the exploitation, or to further encourage this ridiculous behavior. 2- If the restaurant actually does not get the tip, then the waiter was just trying to rip us off (18% tip was apparently not enough, he wants to scam us into paying a 36% tip), then I will also not visit this restaurant again since management doesn't seem to know how to properly train their employees to not scam their customers.

Well done Bice. I stopped in with a friend this past Monday. We are from Boston so we know good Italian. The wait staff and host pulled us in from the street and we were very pleased with the meals. My friend had linguini with pesto. I had the pasta with lobster. I must say the meal was delectable. No long wait times or confusing menu items. Our server was friendly and attentive. We forgot to use our coupon! But still the meal was tasty. .

Renae S.

Food and service were both exceptional! Highly recommend! Got way more than expected and will definitely go back!

Christine Foster

Food awesome. I had linguini with clams, it was amazing. The only issue, ladies restrooms were a mess, no toilet paper, dirty. They were not busy enough to warrant that kind of mess.

Coach Diana Melendez

Great food, great atmosphere, our server Antonio was knowledgeable and so attentive. It was super busy but his service was like we were the only ones in the place. We will definitely be back soon!

Mayra D.

Delicious ceviche and tuna tartare appetizer. Great bread and impeccable service. We had steak and frites, soup and salads that did not disappoint! Great place at a great location. Will go back!

Espen Christiansen

Great food and service. The Risotto was marvelous!

Hande Berilgen

We walked all Ocean Drive and decided to pick this amazing spot to eat!

See Kue

I mean... talk about service. Kind and clever with great suggestions and the best prices around. Been here once and definitely willing to return. Hospitaliano!!

I visited with my husband and two small kids a few days ago and this place was fantastic for lunch! We sat outside in the shade and it was very comfortable and relaxing. The bread came out hot and fresh, and we ordered the fried calamari/shrimp, Milano pizza, and linguine with clams. All of the food was delicious, and it quite possibly was the best ever linguine with clams I've ever had. They were able to easily accommodate allergies and the staff was very friendly and went out of their way to be extra sweet to my kids. As an added bonus, the bathrooms are beautiful in the hotel! A must visit if you want delicious and fresh food!

Kylie Locke

Food was good and service was decent. They charge a 20% tip on the receipt regardless of service quality. Host and bus boys were super nice.

Charles J

Great service is the standout, deserving of the 20% service charge they include and about which they are upfront. They do seem to expect a little more tip as noted on the final bill, which was also deserving.

Will Graham

Great live music and atmosphere. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. Great food.


One the best fine dining Italian restaurant that we have ever been.

Tony R.

4 days in South Beach, breakfast/lunch/dinner out on Ocean drive and this restaurant is the best by a long mile. The service is on point, the food delicious and they are not in a hurry to turn the table. Grazie Mille.


One of the best waiters we've ever had, very helpful and pleasant. Good ambience. If you are coming for drinks in miami look for Aaron.

Tanaye W.

Went here for breakfast to finish off our South Beach vacation. The service was prompt and polite. Alex made sure everything was okay, even when it began raining on our table. Would recommend the seasonal fruit and white omelette.
