Fodor's Review

If Tony Soprano lived in Miami, this is where you'd find him. This famous, bustling Italian eatery is infused with the energy of the Argentine Cea family, whose clan cooks, serves, and operates this place, while somehow finding the time to pose for photos with the hundreds of celebrities who have eaten here over the years (see them in the photos on the walls). It's on a busy street, yet the low light, soothing music, and intimate seating on this restaurant's outdoor veranda

can make Café Prima Pasta a romantic spot. Everything is made in-house—from the fragrant rosemary butter to the pasta, which tastes best as crab-stuffed raviolotti or as homemade squid ink linguine, served with seafood in a lobster sauce.

GO TO for Seafood Italian

Cafe Prima Pasta was a don't miss for seafood/italian. The shrimp were large and the best we had in several Miami restaurants. The bread was fresh baked and the ambiance was "local" and not a tourist mill.

good food at a good price with no hassles

Food and service were excellent, a lot better than I had at many other restaurants in the Miami area that Fodor's recommended. Had the osso bucco special-was really rich and served over risotto. could taste the butter in the risotto. enough for 2 or 3!!
