I'm a very picky eater and this place is simply AMAZING! If you are looking for authentic, delicious Italian food, this is your place. Super friendly staff and great ambiance! Definitely recommend!

Wow, wow, wow! The best Italian food ever. Absolutely amazing ravioli and a stupendous side order of an incredible egg plant recipe. Good Italian beer to wash down a stunning Tiramisu. It's easy to walk straight past this restaurant as it has a very unassuming exterior but don't. What a great and totally unexpected experience.Very highly recommended.

Let me start by saying I'm a VERY picky eater. This place has absolutely amazing authentic Italian food! It's a little piece of Italy in Miami. The bucatini is to die for and do is the tiramisu. Honestly, so was every other dish I've tried here. They are also very fairly priced and have a great wine list. Go try it, you won't be disappointed!

Legit the best Italian I have had in a restaurant in years - and I live in NYC! Very authentic, perfect al dente pasta, super fresh mozzarella. Unassuming location but perfect food!

Wow! Real Italian food. This isn't your standard Americanized Italian restaurant. It's the best Italian food I've had in Miami. Inventive, fresh, carefully balanced flavors and takes on classic dishes.

Philippe Martin

Wow! Only authentic Italian restaurant in Miami. Others are good but Italian American. This here is the real deal!

Me and my girlfriend really loved this place! Only has 2 years of existence but it is really good !! A really Italian Restaurant with real italian food!! We had Crudo di Parma for entree, beer for me and white wine for her, she had a daily plate Carbonara and I had lasagna was simply delicious!! We liked it a lot because the restaurant it's not huge has a really good decoration and a personalized costumers service!! For us it is a real 5 stars

Good tasty food, but very expensive for what is offered. North of $100 for one pasta dish each and wine for two is expensive by British standards.

I am from NJ between Philadelphia and NY. I have been to all the great ones... and Gino's is as good if not better!!

Intimate setting that is not stuffy, and good noise level for conversation. Excellent food. We tried: the eggplant Parmigiana, which was prepared differently than we are used to - it is both sIlky and creamy; insulata mixta, very good but a little salty; risotto (excellent in every way); sea bass (very good, but the portion was a little small); and the Madagascar, which was really interesting and outstanding. Cappuccino could have been hotter. Prices were reasonable, with service included in the final bill.

What an amazing restaurant! After one couple from Canada next to us left, we were the only non- Italians left in the restaurant. We really felt like we were in Italy. Portions are not American huge which I prefer and not cheap but so delicious! Everything was wonderful. This is an amazing place, cozy with great service and equally great food. If you love Italian food, you must come here!


Spectacular- the best Italian meal I’ve had in years - don’t hesitate in eating here - just excellent!

Absolute best ever authentic Italian meal with Italian owner and staff. Chef selection of appetizers, pastas, and desserts took us beyond expectations of how good Italian cuisine could be. Delizioso!!

Let's get right to it, Gino's Bottega Italiana (GBI) served the best Italian food I've had at an Italian Restaurant in well over 15 years. This isn't your neighborhood red sauce joint. Great recipes, using great ingredients, executed by great staff. There's nothing left to say except that you must make it a point of coming here to eat--often.

This establishment was highly recommended from a good Italian friend of mine. I was a little weary since I am a local and this is in a bit of a tourist area on Collins Avenue in a small store front. However I had a phenomenal experience. ALL the Items I ordered were delicious, great presentation, very friendly and professional staff and reasonable prices. All employees and chef are Italian. You cant get more authentic than that. All the dishes we tried were tasteful and finely cooked. It is an excellent choice for anyone in the adjacent areas and for a semi-casual evening with your loved one, friends or family. Definitely going back soon.

The best food and service

I have been to Italy more times than most (my husband worked for Delta Airlines for 44 years). Gino's had the freshest and most delicious pasta I've EVER had. The restaurant is small and intimate. Average decor. The service was just right. Excellent food.

Wanderful homey Italian spot in Miami Beach. The flavors transported me to Parma or Tuscany. The burrata with black truffle is to die for, the octopus was perfect. The service attentive an unassuming. It is my new favorite neighborhood spot!

Carmen G.

Stop looking! you found the real thing. Authentic Italian menu, amazing desserts and a perfect espresso. All served in a unique and beautiful flatware. The wine list has a great selection and the wine glasses make you feel like you are in a 5 star restaurant. A perfect dining experience.

Madeline Ley

Great little restaurant on Collins ave. The food is authentic and the waiters are very attentive. The fried pizza is absolutely delicious and the tomato sauce is very fresh. Amazing desserts as well!

This has become a go to place for me. The staff have already become accustomed to where I will sit and what I will likely order. From time to time, I venture trying something new. The result is always the same, delicious consistency. When you're hungry and looking for something satisfying and savory, look no further.


Italian cuisine with a creative twist. Worth trying at least once.


By far the best service and also ITALIAN FOOD in all of Miami Beach! I suggest to come here! The place is small but super cozy!! Love it!!

As an ex-pat who has lived in Italy, I've grown to love authentic Italian....this place has it!! I returned for a second time today...the staff remembered me and even allowed me to order "off" menu. I feel as though I'm back in Italy. I'll be back for more. Food and service is great. Try their organic red wine...
