Miami New Times' Description

Ristorante Fratelli Milano's umbrella-shaded tables are tightly clustered together on pinched, pedestrian-clogged SE First Street, and the two dozen indoor seats are just as closely cramped in the windowless aisle of a room. This ain't exactly the Piazza del Duomo. Limited starter choices include an antipasti misto, bruschetta atop toasted ciabatta bread, soup of the day, and paper-thin pizzas that are blackened along the rim. A half-dozen salads encompass the usual suspects -- Caprese, caesar, and chef -- along with pasta, spinach, and arugula assemblages garishly garnished with too many ingredients to list. Pastas are uniformly praiseworthy, including a thick, wide square of lasagna plied with sausage-laden meat sauce, béchamel, mozzarella fior di latte, and Parmigiano-Reggiano; bright yellow rings of cheese tortellini mingled with peas and ham in a reduced cream sauce; and a daily special of linguine chock-a-block with tender littleneck clams in their shells. Veal alla Milanesa is big and bouncy with bocconcini salad piled on top, but grilled skirt steak, mahi-mahi, and chicken breast represent a lighter cooking approach that is perhaps more suitable for the torpor of Miami summer. Fratelli's offerings are freshly made and popularly priced (entrées under $15, pastas less than $10), attributes that are considerable consolation for downtown Miami workers who won't get to stretch their legs over the cobblestones of the Piazza del Duomo anytime soon.

    One of my favorite restaurants in town. Cheap, Excellent, Variety, Quality, homemade Italian food, and wonderful desserts are some of the words that characterize this place. Favorite dish: Pizza Rinascente.
