So I read the reviews and figured it would be better than average but I was dissapointed! The salad and bread that came out was pretty bad...Some shredded lettuce a wedge of tomato and a weak vinaigrette. The pizza was fine but nothing exciting. We tried the lasagna, chicken parm, and some other stuffed pasta with spinach and meat and all of it seems bland and they used the same meat base for all the dishes. They had only red sauce based dishes, with the exception of a fettuccine alfredo. Overall it was overpriced food that wasn't very good. There are much better places in Miami. For those of you that put up reviews that have been eating here for years and that this is the best Italian place in Miami you all need to broaden your palettes and go to a real Italian restaurant. Sorry Nunzios!

Pros: Pizza

Cons: Menu was limited, ambiance is awful

I was so surprised to see some of these negative comments! I have been a loyal customer for years and the food here is delicious! They charge the same prices as any other restaurant, nothing overpriced. The portions here are huge! I often find myself asking for a bag to take home the rest of my meal. You definitely get what you pay for here, and it's worth every penny! Even actor Patrick Dempsey ("McDreamy") ate here (twice), and I wouldn't say he's either overweight or a "geezer."

Cons: None!!

My parents like coming to this place, they have coming for a while. They always want me to go with them and i tell them hell no. The pizza is fine and all, but the food is not that good. Everything has meat sauce and it looks and taste like dog food covered in cheese. Also every time I go I see the same scene: Overweight kids/adults/geezers. the service is ok tho.

We and our family have been eating at Nunzio's for over 15 years. It used to be a place where you'd get a great meal at a fair price amid a family-oriented ambiance.
The past few visits have been very disappointing. It seems that the portions are much smaller and the prices have gone way up so that it's no longer a good value. For example, the last time we were there we ordered a "large" cheese pizza which would be a medium anywhere else and it was $20!!!, and it wasn't even that good. I thought at first when I began to notice these changes that, like most places, they were cutting back on portions to control costs, but if you're serving less and charging more than it's just a rip-off. I don't plan on returning anytime soon and it's a shame that a wonderful place where we celebrated many happy occasions won't be in our plans in the future.

The food is delicious at Nunzios. It's a small Family owned Restaurant with authentic Italian Food. Highly Recommended! I love the Baked Ziti and the Zupetta is a must have for dessert!

Nunzio's Ristorante is one of the best italian restaurants i have gone to so far! In the City of Miami this should be a highly recognized restaurant and be made famous for it's delicious cuisine and their original dessert recipe called Zuppetta which is superb!!!! They also make a nice Bruschetta for the antipasto which prepares you for the actual entree that will knock your socks off! The decor and tables are nice, clean & proper! They also have tons of Family photos hanging from the wall which gives off a sweet family ambience in the restaurant. Bring your family here because i totally recommend it and i guarantee your family will have fun and eat well here! :)

Pros: Italian Food is amazing, Desserts are divine and the ambience is family-oriented!

Cons: I did not find any bad things with this establishment.

After my second attempt at eating at Nunzio's, I finally gave up and I feel the need to write something about this place. Nunzio's very Italian and intimate setting is a very attracting feature to the restaurant, however due to what seem like budget cuts or supply issues the entrees here are very sparse and very low in quality.

One thing that however is not sparse are its very hearty prices and laughable bread and salad. What I got was a plain 8 inch loaf of crunchy white bread with some butter and Parmesan cheese powder (to give it that Italian zest?). No olive oil or ground pepper will be found here. The salads are so small they are insulting; a handful of pieces of lettuce with a tomato and some vinaigrette.

As for the entree itself, it left much to be yearned for. To keep it simple, one of the main ingredients was supposed to be ground beef and I spent some time scavenging my pasta to find any evidence of it! The lack of ground parmesan that should have been offered to top my plate was the least of the problems.

At the end I wondered why the entree was $15+ yet worth less than a cheap pizza? For a "four star" restaurant Nunzio's is not worth any of your money, however if you do go, I caution you that soon enough they may begin to charge for water, and also hire "Chef Boyardee" as their main cook.

Pros: The setting of the establishment is cozy, worth taking a photograph perhaps?

Cons: The entire fact that it is a restaurant. I feel Mr. Nunzio should seriously think about a new cooking staff.

My ultimate favorite restaurant in Miami....from the staff to the food there is no comparrison to any other Italian restaurant in Miami! the only dissapointment is that they leave every summer to Italy...always the first customer when August comes along!

I wrote the below review back in 2007. As you can see, I wasn't overly impressed then, but had eaten some pretty good dishes. Unfortunately, the quality has steadily gotten worse with time. I think it may be time to close this one down.
I ordered an antipasto for four and was served a heaping bowl of iceberg lettuce with 3 or 4 slices of subway quality salami and a few slices of subway quality cheese. The meatball sandwich was good, but for close to $10 your better off getting an italian sub at subway. I will not waste my time or money on this restaurant again.

--------2007------"This is a small family owned restaurant that has been in business for several years now. The pizza and pasta dishes are dellicious. However, if your looking for authentic Italian food, this is not the place. The menu features typical americanized cuisine(pizza, lasagna, meat parmigiana). No real steak or seafood entrees to choose from. The salad offered is one typically seen at a cuban restaurant... chopped iceberg lettuce, sliced tomatoes, and sliced onions tossed in olive oil & vinegar on a small plate. What's with that? Out of default, stick to the pasta w/ cheese, pizza, and bread here.

Weekends at this restaurant get crowded, so I would recommend either ordering to go or trying one of the other chain restaurants. If you want authentic...I believe it's called "SOL" at sunset place." or you could try Basilico for very good food and service for the same price as Nunzio's.

I love this place!! I come here at least once every 2 weeks. It is a mom and pop place with a great family feel for the place. They have family pictures everywhere! You feel right at home. They have the best dishes...I love the lasagna, tortalini, and definitely their thin crust pizzas. I would recommend this to any person or family...good for larger parties and romantic for couples. Their wine selection is also delicious. Get there early on Friday nights...it gets packed and the wait is longer...they don't accept reservations...but it's ok because it's worth the wait! On friday nights I usually order take out, and it's just as good! If you haven't been to Nunzios...you don't know what you're missing!!!!

This is my favorite italian restaurant in Miami by a long shot! The ambiance and atmosphere is great, very familiar, it feels like one has been invited to dinner at a italian family's home, or in my case it feels like eating at "nona's" house with the whole family. The music is really upbeat as well the bathroom is very clean.

The food is unbelieavable, I have yet to try something in the menu I don't love. Service is great, and the prices are incredibly low! No matter where in Miami you are, you owe it to yourself to go to Nunzio's.

If I don't eat there I take out, but I stop by at least once or twice a week. One always leaves Nunzio's satisfied and in a good mood. This family loves their restaurant and it comes through in the treatment, food, decoration and maintenance of the place.

I used to work across from Nunzio's when it was in a small strip mall on Coral Way. When it moved to it's bird road location I missed it a great deal. I go there almost every month and the food is always great.

Nunzio's is by far the best, most authentic Italian fare in the Miami area. Leave those pricey, modern Trattoria's behind and dive into the best meat sauce around for a fraction of the price! We have been dining there for nearly ten years and every time are still blown away by this family's incredible food.

As authentic as you can get! Hearty portions bursting with flavor. Have the bruschetta (pronounced broos-KET-tah, not broo-she-tah like most wannabe italian restaurants will pronounce it) and you'll fall in love. Don't skip the zupetta. Friendly as only true Italians can be! Come early, it gets PACKED!
