Miami Beach, known for its liveliness and spectacular food, has recently experienced an influx of new, modern restaurants.

Osteria Morini:

This fine-dining experience offers customers a variety of Italian flavors, with dishes ranging from a delicious Cappelletti to a flavorful Pollo Al Forno. Located in many places, one can enjoy this restaurant in New York City, New Jersey, Washington, D.C., Long Island and now, of course, Miami Beach. 

One of Osteria’s chefs, Chef White, shipped components from an 18th century Italian farmhouse to create the unique decor for the first location in New York. The semi-open kitchen lets guests watch meal preparation unfold. Executive Chef Bill Dorrler oversees the kitchen operations at Osteria Morini, led daily by Chef di Cucina Gerardo Fernandez.

Morini has been selected for a multitude of awards, including Thrillist’s “The 25 Best Italian Restaurants in Miami,” two Eater awards, Zagat’s “New York City’s Best 100 Restaurants” and many more.
