THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Il Tulipano Restaurant Review: For good Northern Italian fare in North Miami, look no further. This polished and friendly place has been a culinary destination for years. Despite the recent glut of good Italian cuisine virtually everywhere, it still is. Located near the homes of mostly transplanted New York retirees, and with a new owner who is not Italian, Il Tulipano continues to captivate a conservative clientele who swear by the consistent upscale cuisine. Understated, classic Italian cooking embraces classic risotto verde with baby asparagus or polenta with fresh tomato and sautéed baby octopus. With a smashing wine list, brimming with imports and domestics alike, this mature and respectable restaurant attracts businesspeople, sophisticated snowbirds and yuppie couples in addition to those nearby New York retirees.
