What we had: This Italian eatery in Buena Vista is keeping it authentic for Miami Spice, offering both lunch and dinner. Our dinner started with an order of the Mussels in a white wine sauce, with nduja, and creme fraiche. It set the tone and flavor for our main dish, the Octopus Pasta with with a perfectly braised octopus, juicy tomatoes that offset the taste of the squid ink chittara. A little craving for chocolate had us going for the Ice Cream Sandwich- simple but so flavorful made with chocolate cookies and creme fraiche.
