Scarpetta Restaurant Review

: The creative, contemporary Italian food at Scarpetta is arguably some of the best in town, complemented by Fontainebleau Miami Beach’s indoor/outdoor ocean-view setting. Enjoy chef Scott Conant’s creamy polenta (served with a side of bold truffled mushroom fricassée); near-greaseless, lightly crisp-coated seafood-vegetable-lemon fritto misto; and elegant crudos, including a raw yellowtail with ginger-infused olive oil, plus tuna with osetra caviar. As for the pricey serving of spaghetti with tomato and basil, the molded portion of thick house-made pasta is none too large (typical of most dishes here) and the sauce is not southern Italy’s purist essence of falling-off-the-vine-ripe tomato. But the concentrated, buttery-tasting, basil-spiked dish is heavenly --- and who expects pasta in paradise to come cheap? Choose from many carefully curated wines from the expansive cellar holding more than 150 labels.
