SoBe Miami brazilian pizza place ?

Dear all

I was last in Miami 2 years ago and was recommended a great funky Pizza place which I think was also Brazilian?

Am I losing the plot here ? - if not can someone remind me what it was called and is it still good ? ?

Also, any other top recs of a similar quality and vibe which will not break the bank ? Any cuisine is fine.

Have seen some posts here re Michaels- what is that like and is it open Sunday ?

Likely we will be staying South or North Beach

Thanks for any help & advice you can give.

  1. The name is Piola. There are several locations in the United States and in Europe. There's three Piola in Miami.

    Also, Michael's just opened up recently for brunch. :)

      Hey thanks for this.

      What is Michael's like ?
      Any other quintessential SoBe recs ?

        Search this board for Michael's Genuine and youll find a ton of info. Its open Sunday now for brunch 11a-3p (make a rez if you wanna go cuz it just started last week and was very popular) and for dinner. Im not sure about Sunday lunch. Its my favorite restaurant in Miami.

    2. How does Piola compare to Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza?

          Anthony's must use butter in their crust or something because it's way too flavorful.

            So is Anthony's the best place for pizza on SoBe ?

            How about best burger, Cuban, Italian ?

              This is a pretty long list of "best ..." threads ->

              Some haven't been updated for a while, others are fairly current, but you should find lots of information there and if you just search or browse this board some.

                No. Anthony's is not the best place for pizza in South Beach. They don't have a location in South Beach. I was just saying that people like the place for some reason and my theory is the butter/margarine/lard in the crust. Gotta be.
