Casa Tua Restaurant Review

: Casa Tua is a gorgeous stone Mediterranean-style beach house whose front gates open to a lush outdoor garden terrace of white linen-topped tables, and an indoor series of dining rooms decorated to make diners feel as though they're in the home of a good friend---assuming their friends are Martha Stewart and Ralph Lauren. Oft-changing menus showcase simple, sophisticated ingredients that typify the best of Italian cooking, such as an appetizer of deliciously moist burrata mozzarella cheese with six types of tomato. There are culinary missteps along the way, like a dry, too well-chilled carpaccio of red wine-marinated beef, but these are few and far between. Pastas prove consistently gratifying, none more so than pappardelle in a rich lamb ragu, as well as the most reasonably priced items on an expensive menu. Neatly dressed, unfussy seafood entrées satisfy as well, though our favorite main course consists of two boneless quails bathed in black truffle sauce and puffed with a stuffing of chopped veal, fresh sage and Parmesan. Casa Tua is defined by its utterly enchanting setting, but the quality food, professional service, and smart selection of Italian wines make this more than just another pretty facade.

An exceptional restaurant
by Dr Valentin Pashtenko on Tue Mar 06, 2012 6:36 pm
 
The feshness of the basil, the crispness and flavor of the tomato, and the perfect texture of the mozzarella - made that day, with cracked pepper and a dash of coarse salt drizzled with a wonderful extra virgin cold-pressed olive oil reminded me of dining in Northern Italy with my wife. Typically, Miami is known for exceptional Carribbean foods with cilantro, limes, and a different pallet of flavors. However, this is one of just a handfull of South Florida restaurants which is worth considering in this cultural heaven which I proudly call my home.
