Casa Tua "Best
Restaurant in the World!"
Date: December 15, 2005
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, New York, NY
Casa Tua is the best restaurant I have ever been in the world, and
I travel all the time internationally. Every time I am in Miami,
a weekend a month in winters, I try to book a table. (which is sometimes
tough, so plan as far in advance as you can) I always sit outside,
as the candle lit trees and garden really set the mood for an amazing
evening of wine (great Italian wine selection) and the best food
I've ever eaten. The scallops are amazing, the risotto is fantastic
and the steak with pate is out of this world. Service is very attentive
and patient. I have been there at least 10 times over the past 3
years and have never walked away upset with any part of the meal.
Casa Tua "Tutto fumo e niente arrosto"

Ho chiamato il giovedÃ¬ per prenotare un tavolo per 4
persone per il giorno successivo alle 22,00 e mi Ã¨ stato
raccomandato di essere puntuali dal momento che giÃ
erano al completo. La sera quando siamo arrivati il ristorante era
pieno al 50 % ( quasi vuoto per essere venerdÃ¬) ed abbiamo
cenato in modo mediocre, a giudizio di tutti noi, pagando circa
$ 120,00 a persona avendo scelto un vino rosso dei piÃ¹
economici ($ 70,00). ESPERIENZA DA NON RIPETERE
Casa Tua "Best Meal in the USA"
Date: August 9, 2005
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, London, England
This is the first restaurant I have felt compelled to write a review
about. My husband and I have dined at some of the top restaurants
in Europe, the US and the Far East, so the elegance, exquisite food
and superb service in Casa Tua came as a surprise from this less
well known Miami restaurant. We intended to dine Italian style with
both of us ordering our own appetiser, pasta dish and entree, but
our waiter advised us that would be too much and suggested we share
an appetiser, share a pasta and order an entree each. This was the
perfect suggestion given the simple but stunning nature of each
dish and the portion. The truffle risotto was by far the best risotto
I have ever tasted and precisely the right amount. The service all
evening was impeccable (something that is often lacking or alternatively
claustrophobic in even the most prestigious restaurants) and the
general ambience was simple yet stylish. The wine lists gave a broad
selection with both New and Old World choices and the sommelier
was helpful without being strident. All in all, I would advise Miami
visitors to make a reservation at this true South Beach gem.
Casa Tua "Disappointing"
Date: June 23, 2005
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, Miami, FL
After many weeks of trying to get a reservation at a time other
than very early or very late, I got one on a rainy Wednesday night.
It had to be secured with a credit card, and I was called that day
to ensure I would arrive. When we did arrive, we found that the
restaurant was quite empty, and although I had been given a window
in which to book the reservation, the tables remained largely empty
throughout the night, leading me to believe that all the "booked"
talk was a ruse to increase the buzz about the restaurant.
The service was good, but with a slightly condesending attitude.
I was asked if it was my first time there, and when I stated that
myself and my guest were first timers, the waiter took it upon himself
to attempt to place his version of what the order should be, to
the point of closing the three page menu and opening it to the parts
he wanted us to order from. None the less, the service was attentive,
but almost to the point of overbearing. I should note at this time
that it appeared that most of the diners where first timers, and
there appears to be a reason for this as I will discuss below:
Now to the food. While I have eaten in many restaurants in Miami
over the years, and the atmosphere here was most wonderful, I found
the portions to be rather tiny, making the ordering of 3 courses
plus dessert a necessity to leave with a satisfied feeling. That
aside, I found the first course to be very good (bay scallops),
the second course to be OK (rissoto with truffle) and the third
course to be just awful (3 "Fiji" shrimp very over cooked
for $36 in a dessert sweet mix of barley and orange flavor). I suppose
I could have sent it back, but then my partner's dinner would have
been cold waiting. So we continue. Dessert ordered was Dark Chocolate
mousse with coconut icecream. What I got was like a scoop of Jello
Pudding with a very thinly flavored dollop of coconut ice. My companion
ordered an apricot tart with almond ice cream, the tart was ice
cold, the almond ice cream was like that from Publix. During dinner
we had two cocktails, one glass of wine and one coffee. At over
$250 for two, we would not recommend this restaurant, and the sad
part is that if the meal was $100 for two, we still wouldn't.
Casa Tua "Best restaurant in Miami"
Date: May 3, 2005
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, NY
After almost three years of trying top restaurants in the Miami
area I have found that consistency of food quality and service rank
high among my primary reasons for choosing Casa Tua as my favorite
Best Italian food this side of the Atlantic. The staff is always
impeccable and they anticipate your every need and are very accommodating
and truly a plus to the best food in South Beach. A wine list that
is very expansive and has many unique wines for all taste and budgets.
The dishes are truly creative and the ever-changing menu always
has more than a few specials. A must for a first timer is to try
the buffalo burrata (Fresh Mozzarella from Puglia) or the Taylor
Bay scallops for appetizer, the variety of Risotto's and the fresh
made-pasta menu has a choice for many palates. The filet mignon
with foie gras is incredibly tender and flavorful. The Branzino
a very mild Mediterranean fish are a must try. The desert selections
offer choices from the very dense and decedent milk chocolate mousse-cake
to the light and very delicate frozen champagne soup with fresh
fruit salad. The tea gives a perfect ending for an extraordinary
Casa Tua "3 Weeks Waiting - No Table Ready when we Arrived!"
Date: March 27, 2005
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, Miami
I made reservations 3 weeks earlier for dinner for four. I specifically
requested an outdoor table. They told me that they only had 9:45
pm open. I accepted. What a disappointment! First of all - at noon
of the reservations day, I received a call from the restaurant stating
that since their was a 20 percent chance of rain, if I wanted to
change my reservations to a table inside. I told her that I didn't
think 20 percent meant rain that thank you but I would like to keep
my reservations for outdoors. She then told me that 9:45 wasn't
available - that could we please come in at 10 pm instead- I agreed.
Finally, we arrived - what a disappointment! the hostess was rude
and said that they were very busy and we should wait at the bar.
She had no idea when our table would be ready. We waited 15 or 20
minutes. We then asked for the manager whom never arrived. We decided
there are way to many nice restaurants in Miami to wait to be served
there. All the employees that passed us seemed very rude and unfriendly.
Don't waste your time with Casa Tua!! We ended up in Smith and Wollensky
(also on the Beach) and had a fabulous dinner with excellent service...
