Osteria Miami: an Italian Gem in MiMo

Posted by Mary Jo Almeida-Shore On September - 1 - 2022

Tucked away unsuspectingly in Miami’s trendy MiMo district lies one of the best new Italian restaurants in town. Already a  neighborhood favorite, Osteria’s rustic, welcoming atmosphere and vibrant mix of authentic Italian comfort foods, creatively crafted and prepared table-side, make guests feel as though they are dining in someone’s home in the Italian countryside; and are already part of the family. 

 With a rich history steeped in Italian tradition, the Osteria is best known as a humble neighborhood eatery, a place to enjoy good wine and simple yet elegant food. But the true essence of the Osteria is more than just a place to feast – it’s a place for family. Osteria Miami is true to its name in every sense.

Osteria offers a unique approach to flavors, freshness, and presentation. In addition to a wide variety of daily specials, the regular menu items are outstanding.  

To the delight of its guests, Osteria offers a curated Chef’s table experience, taking cues from traditional dining traditions. So whether you’re going rustic with prosciutto and mortadella meatballs or indulging in flaky, tender baked Branzino, Osteria Miami welcomes guests for any and every occasion. It comes as no surprise that guests want to give Osteria more than five stars!

Favorite dishes include: Antipasto dell’Osteria, Mezzi Paccheri alla Gricia di Carciofi, Tagliolini cacio e pepe, and Cotoletta alla Milanese- the best we’ve ever tasted. For dessert, the Tiramesu is a one-of-a-kind experience, prepared right at your table. The daily specials are highly recommended, especially the Figliata- a large ball of hand- made burrata filled with “baby” burrata balls, served on a board with Prosciutto, impressively deconstructed right at your table. Dishes are meant to be shared and paired with Osteria’s curated, imported wines.

Osteria is Graspa Group’s newest dining concept. According to co-owner and founder, Graziano Sbroggio, “Osteria is a place that combines great food and exceptional service. Although nowadays many restaurants serve good food, what we offer at Osteria is a rare formula that will make the entire experience unforgettable. Our customer response has been great. We’ve seen a bunch of repeat guests and many positive reviews online. Food is a passion point for everyone and there’s no better feeling than seeing a happy guest leave our restaurant.”

When asked about future plans for the restaurant Graziano explains, “Our plans for Osteria are simple. We want to build a positive relationship with the surrounding area and the rest of the City of Miami and become known as one of the truest and most authentic Italian dining experiences the city has to offer.”

Osteria offers indoor and outdoor seating and private dining for larger parties, and is located at 

8001 Biscayne Blvd, Miami, FL 33138 Bookings are encouraged and can be made directly on its website. Opening hours are 5 PM – 10:30 PM Tuesday to Thursday, 5 PM – 11 PM Friday and Saturday, and 5 PM – 10:30 PM on Sundays.
