Fine Italian Dining with a View: Osteria Morini Miami Beach
Get original Northern Italian cuisine and hospitality, right in the heart of Miami Beach. Located inside the trendy Kimpton Hotel and situated alongside the canal, Osteria Morini delivers fresh food, a unique ambiance, and superb service for every visit. The warm atmosphere, combined with an exciting Italian menu featuring house-made pastas, is what keeps customers coming back.
Whether you are coming for brunch, cocktails, or an anniversary dinner, Osteria Morini aims to make any experience memorable. Sit outside on the spacious outdoor patio and watch the boats go by or grab a table on the rooftop and admire Biscayne Bay. The views, light breeze, and beautifully presented plates make for a picture-perfect moment you’ll remember forever.
For those looking for a light meal to accompany after-work cocktails, there is no better way to start than with Battilardo—Osteria Morini’s famous meat and cheese board. Create your own board and pick from an assortment of cured meats, cheeses, and spreads. If you’re only going to have one of the many options available, the Prosciutto di Parma is a must, but if you’re feeling adventurous then try the Gorgonzola Dolce—a semi-soft cheese—and the Fegatini, a delicious pate. Served with warm crostini, the Battilardo truly captures the spirit of Italy in a plate.
Osteria Morini aims to bring rich Italian gastronomy to Miami Beach, their menu was inspired by the region in Northern Italy called Emilia-Romagna which is famously known for their stuffed fresh pastas and the birthplace of mortadella and balsamic vinegar—two main players of Italian cuisine. For appetizers, you cannot leave without trying the Polpettine—these mouth-watering meatballs (made with prosciutto and pistachio mortadella) are tender, juicy, and accompanied with whipped ricotta. It’s a magical experience for your tastebuds. The Fritto Misto—calamari with an Italian twist—is another appetizer that no one can resist. The generous portion makes it ideal for sharing.
The house-made pastas at Osteria Morini are made to perfection. Try the Cappelletti, these little bites of heaven stuffed with truffled ricotta are served with pieces of prosciutto and topped with melted butter. There are also a variety of entrees offered, from Veal Milanese—which is served with a layer of prosciutto and swiss cheese, over sauteed spinach—to the Agnello—a half rack of lamb beautifully crusted with Italian herbs.
This is truly an Italian feast, and like all celebrations, it’s not complete until dessert is served. Osteria Morini’s Tiramisu is superb and beautifully crafted, or try the fluffy doughnuts, Bombolini—warm citrus ricotta doughnuts served with a vanilla and strawberry sauce—an amazing way to end a happy meal.
Osteria Morini is located at 1750 Alton Road, Miami Beach, 33139.
