Fodor's Review

To accommodate the demanding clientele of its exclusive boutique hotel as well as anyone willing to wait two weeks for a reservation, Casa Tua provides a charming restaurant with both indoor and outdoor dining. The food is northern Italian; sophisticated yet simple dishes include truffle risotto and seared diver scallops with an artichoke puree. The service is seamless and relaxed. And the elegant experience at this mostly alfresco restaurant with a Mediterranean-beach-house feel is a peaceful respite from Miami Beach's dizzying energy.

Surprised Dissatisfaction

I was very much looking forward to my dining experience in this highly acclaimed spot in South Beach which turned out to be quite dissatisfying in the quality of food and level of sophistication. In the last few days we dined at the Meat Market, Italian Prime, Cafe Avanti, and we found them all to be much superior to Casa Tua in the level of cuisine art and freshness of food. To give a few specific examples: the chilean sea bass was fishy, the famed

truffle risotto was a simple undercooked rice with truffle shavings layered on top, the duck breast and marinated beef carpacio had a stale taste. The price was unjustifiably high for the quality and food experience to suggest this restaurant to foodies and gourmet lovers.

We were there for an early (7:00 p.m.) dinner and had no trouble getting an outdoor table. The pavered patio is blocked off of James street by dense hedges and one feels very secluded. No less than three servers assisted us through the night. Rosario (sp?) was excellent in her recommendations. The food had the freshest of ingredients. The Zucchini flowers stuffed with ricotta and goat cheese ($12) was a terrific antipasti. My risotto di Farro

with lobster and black truffle sauce ($28) was filling and tasty. The Orecchiette with scampi, clams and zucchini ($26) was made with home-made orecchiette and was perfect. Lastly, we shared a seared branzino with roasted vegetables, wild capers and nicoise olives ($42). PHENOMENAL!!! The Tiramisu was light and rich; the creme brulee was heavenly. I give this my best recommendation. While we sat outdoors, fine seating was to be had in the faux living room type dining room. There was also an 18-seating in an area which looks into the chef's kitchen. Reservations highly recommended, especially if you want outdoor seating.
