Joey's Restaurant Review: At the heart of Miami’s Wynwood neighborhood lies this intimate café, where servers know your name, likes and dislikes. Sit outside, where turf, shrubs and string lighting make it unassumingly romantic. Properly al dente pastas start at $9 (try the pappardelle gratinate). Especially recommended are the wood-oven pizzas, with thin, blistered crusts and imaginative toppings like figs, Gorgonzola, honey and hot peppers; on paper it might sound risky, but due to the beautiful sense of balance displayed by chef Ivo Mazzon (who is from Italy's Veneto region) it works. Whichever you choose, wash it down with wine, which ranges from only minimally marked-up $55-$150 Super Tuscans to thoughtfully chosen super-saver bottles for $25-$30, though there are a few $1,000 Bordeaux first growth reds, too. Take an after-dinner walk through the Wynwood Walls, Miami's unique outdoor street art museum.
