These guys originate out of Napoli aka Naples Italy. This is considered the best style of pizza on earth (sorry New Yorker in me & yous). The Fratelli version of Pizza Napolitana does not disappoint. This small Italian chain has their only US outpost here in South Beach for many years now and is well worth experiencing.

We enjoyed our evening meal at this restaurant which specialises in mozzarella. The salad was light and varied and the fochia home made. I had the small burger which was tasty but too much for me. Can't imagine what a large one would have been. The service was efficient and charming.

We chose an outside table, as the inside is somewhat small and a little noisy depending on the time you are there. We were looking for a restaurant that was off of the main road/area of South Beach. At Fratelli's we had a very enjoyable meal and our server was quite attentive even though he had tables both inside and... More

We had dinner here at a table outside. The food was very good and the waiter made it a very nice experience. Nice and professional.

We had the shared starter plate with meat & cheese, we had to ask for the bread as it did not come with any. We shared a pasta dish which was plenty but the pasta was overcooked & chewy, close to our hotel but will not go again. They did serve a nice Moscato wine.

Excellent service, authentic food freshly prepared with quality ingredients, reasonable prices. The broccoli rabe with sausage appetizer was fabulous, as was the pasta carbonara, cooked al dente, and the personal pizza. Good wine selection, very busy place with good reason.

I come to eat here every time I'm in South Beach. The pizzas are great, fresh ingredients. The burrata, imported directly from Italy, was amazing. Nice wine list (mostly Italian). Great service by Italian servers. There is outdoor seating, it gets quite busy around 8, so recommend reservations.

Authentic Italian cuisine. Our waitress was a sweet Italian girl from Naples! Pizza is thin crust (the way it should be), so delicious! Interesting Italian dessert menu. Had Pastiera cake (wheat, ricotta and rose water in the cake). Delicious, especially since it is an Easter cake, and it was Easter long weekend! (Nice touch!)

We ate pizzas for lunch here and loved the authentic Italian taste and crust. A must if you are visiting Miami Beach and feel like some real pizza!
