Dining room at Cecconi's, Miami Beach, FL

Cecconi's Restaurant Review

: Unlike its sister restaurants in London and West Hollywood, this Miami branch of Cecconi's is almost entirely al fresco; there's a small interior lounge, but most of the space is a romantic beachfront patio, with mini-light wrapped tree trunks (and a retractable awning to protect from sudden storms). Appetizers range from traditional peasant comfort foods (pasta fagioli soup; wood oven-baked meatballs) to trendy favorites like burrata with heirloom tomatoes. But we particularly admire the authentic Venetian carpaccio, artfully dressing-drizzled as at Harry's Bar (the dish's inventor), and a full-flavored vitello tonnato (tender chilled veal with creamy tuna/caper sauce). Pastas are expensive, but some are available in half portions. It's recommended that protein people go for the unctuous veal cheeks balanced by salsa verde rather than Americanized items like filet mignon; there are better steaks in town for the price. If you're feeling flush, the famous $48 white pizza with black truffles tastes like a million bucks. The uniquely Miamian upscale setting makes the place impressive for power breakfasts, too.
