Cecconi’s Miami Beach

Cecconi’s hardly needs an introduction, with restaurants throughout Europe and the United States it is a name renown and synonymous for big bold favors. Housed in Soho Beach House Miami, it is where the big kids go seeking true Italian. With this in mind we escaped the Miami heat and headed for an indulgent afternoon.

Greeted with welcoming smiles, we were promptly escorted past the hotel’s private lounge where Soho guests & private members reclined in worn in vintage armchairs looking effortlessly rock chic. Continuing through the lounge we then came upon Cecconi’s dining room, an outdoor open area reminiscent of a beautiful Venetian garden.

Our waitress guided us through the menu highlighting signature dishes by acclaimed chef Sergio Sigala. Cecconi’s menu boosted Italian classics from wood fire pizza, traditional homemade pasta to seafood tartar, succulent lobster and New York steak. Cecconi’s Miami Beach cleverly caters to all and lets your appetite decide whether it will be a casual affair or dining experience.

We kicked off lunch with the seared tuna dish along with a serving of the octopus lemon capers. The flavors of both dishes bounced from acidic to sweet in the most enjoyable fashion. Next up was the main lobster spaghetti with chili saffron and basil, hands down worth crossing oceans for! The standout however had to be the signature Florida lobster. Presented in its own shell, it was picturesque and refined. The lobster meat was carved out and sat pretty surrounded by succulent heirloom tomatoes and celery pieces. Perfectly prepared, it was the ideal summer dish. Our decadent affair was finished off with a serving of cannelloni and pistachio ice cream. The crunch of the pastry was quickly followed by the burst of lemon ricotta custard – a cheeky zesty surprise. A classic yet well thought-out dessert that had us grinning like children and dabbling our fingers in the crushed pistachio and flaky pastry crumbs.

Open to the public for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week, Cecconi’s no doubt is where Miami meets the Mediterranean. This stylish & sublime restaurant in Miami offers a dining experience with the essence of Venetian fare. Fresh and exciting, they stay true to their Italian roots using ingredients of the highest quality. There’s a warmth and generosity here, helped along by the personable service. The food speaks volumes and is complimented with a refined wine list. Overall, Cecconi’s Miami Beach invites good times and welcomes you back to their family for more!
