Best Italian (expensive)2011 Finalist See 2011’s Winner »
4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, FL 33140
Scarpetta fans might have started with the spaghetti, but they return for extraordinary attention to detail: the smallest flake of sea salt on raw yellowtail ($17), skinny fried slices of lemon in the fritto misto ($17), a tiny piece of baby zucchini atop spring pea raviolini ($24). We love that the pasta offerings shift along with the seasons, and the service is always stellar. Although Scarpetta is located in a huge hotel, the Fontainebleau, it doesn't give you that trapped sensation, because the resort's activities are kept at a distance. A new dining terrace, due to debut this fall, will be enclosed in glass and air conditioned.
