"We sat down and it took almost 15 min for the waiter to take our order. It's a good thing we called him over because it would have taken longer. Mind you the restaurant was not very busy. Our Ceasar salde came 15 min after we ordered. It was over dressed and dripping with dressing. Waited another 20 min after the salde for dinner and need to go to speak with manager to find out what was taking so long. This aragant, foreign was so insulting to tell me that I have relax because the good was worth waiting for and this wasn't fast food. The meal cam 30 min later. Not worth waiting for. I wouldn't go back nor recommend this restaurant to anyone. Spend your money else wear"

"Nice comfortable place amidst the craziness of South Beach for a quiet dinner after you've dropped the big bucks and worn your Pradas at the noted haunts and need to get back to real life. Great lamb shank, very traditional linguine with clams, solid tomato/mozzarella with warm service and basic decor."

"Bread had little texture or flavor, Clams too salty to eat, mixed seafood was ordinary and we felt ignored by the wait staff. Too many good places to eat in Miami to waste time and money going here."

"Among the litany of expensive and overrated restaurants on South Beach, Cara Mia is a wonderful oasis of delicious Italian fare for the money. A great place for locals (and savy tourists) away from the usual tourist traps. Definitely a light dining favorite for weekdays as well as weekends."

"I was going to eat at Quattro on Lincoln Plaza and then read the Trip Advisor reviews which described the food as so-so and the service as horrible. I found Cara Mia on Trip Advisor and the reviews were great. I was staying at the Fontainbleu Hotel and had to walk about 7 miles to get to this restaurant - should have definitely taken a taxi! We ate outside and there was just one other couple out there, so it was so nice. The weather was perfect - but Miami is every day anyway. We had the brushetta - yummo! We also ordered the Chicken Milanese which was fabulous and it came with an arugula salad which was very very good. We ordered a side of pasta which was amazing - my husband and I split this whole dinner because we were from out of town and didn't want any leftovers. Service was very attentive. I had a glass of wine which was very good. We had three waiters/owners checking in on us several times. You can feel the "mom and pop" restaurant vibe from them. I can't recommend it highly enough!!! Loved it!!!"

"Pleasant restaurant and like the outdoor setting to dine under the stars. Quiet background music sets the tone. Tables by street entrance might be too noisy from street traffic on busy nights."

"Everything was perfect for a romatical Itilian type dinner. The mood is very properly set and the food was delicious. ONLY downfall is a lack of hard liquor as only wine and beer are available. Wine list was very nice. The restaurant does not have the full liquor licence"
