Anyone been, any good? What about Zuckerello's at Loehman's or Brio at Gulfstream?
Which is best for fresh ingred pasta creations?
Anything else in the Aventura area good for pasta?
Been to Pilar already....
Thank you very much for some guidance!
Little late, but I figured I'd chime in. I had a pretty bad experience at Yes Pasta. I sent back my first glass of house Chianti because it tasted like it had gone bad. Unfortunately, the new glass they brought me was just as bad. I guess that's just the house wine. We had a sort of mixed plate appetizer and the few chunks of cheese on it were the only palatable part. Everything else seemed stale and not homemade. My gnocchi was actually pretty good; however, my boyfriend's carbonara pasta was awful. The pancetta tasted really off; I noticed it right away when I tried it and he couldn't eat the dish. So I would definitely avoid that place. If you want great homemade pasta and are willing to go a little further north, try Pasta And . . . in Margate. Consistently delicious.
I am Italian, have been at Yes Pasta several times and have always been happy: the food is delicious (I tried almost all the menu!) and the service quite friendly. My favourite dishes are the Spaghetti ai Frutti di Mare, as good as I got it in Italy, the Spaghetti alla Carbonara, without cream (here you can appreciate the Italian chef!), and the Suppli Romani, the fried risotto balls typical from Rome, my city. The decor is very cozy, with shelfs plenty of bottle of wine, olive oil and other products imported from Italy, and the owner, authentic Italian, is always very friendly.
Worth to drive thirty minutes (I live in South Beach) to have dinner at Yes Pasta!
