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"

Date: August 12, 2005
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, Italy
Ho chiamato il giovedì per prenotare un tavolo per 4 persone per il giorno successivo alle 22,00 e mi è stato raccomandato di essere puntuali dal momento che già erano al completo. La sera quando siamo arrivati il ristorante era pieno al 50 % ( quasi vuoto per essere venerdì) ed abbiamo cenato in modo mediocre, a giudizio di tutti noi, pagando circa $ 120,00 a persona avendo scelto un vino rosso dei più 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 restaurant.
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 dinning experience.

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...
