Cultures collide in the most delicious way possible at Capri Sushi and Italian. From house specialty sushi rolls to rich risottos, pizzas, and pastas, the chefs prove their grasp of both Italian and Japanese cuisine. Other original mash-ups include the Capri Asian pasta, which is tossed in a sweet and spicy soy sauce with seared ahi tuna, and the orange pecan french toast. All of the cuisine is kosher.
The founders of Pizza Dude got the idea for their business from an unexpected source—Cosmo Kramer from the '90s sitcom Seinfeld. Inspired by the potential for fun and interaction, they ran with Kramer's idea to open a pizza place where customers make their own pies. The eatery's "Kramer experience" enables diners to build their own pizzas with ingredients brought to their tables. For the "traditional experience," guests approach Pizza Dude's counter to watch staffers assembled their custom pies.
In the pizza-making process, saucy creations materialize out of a choice of white, wheat, or gluten-free dough, six sauces, and more than 40 toppings. The menu also shows the blueprints to Pizza Dude's signature pizzas, including the Rio Bravo with free-range chicken, jalapenos, and cilantro. When it comes time to cook pizzas, Pizza Dude's team pops them into a high-speed conveyor oven that gets crusts browned and cheese bubbling in just five minutes.

Puntino dal Toro is pure Mediterranean—not only does executive chef Fiorenzo Trunzo infuse each dish with Italian flair, but its bistro-style setting creates a European atmosphere that perfectly pairs with the menu. The menu features several tapas—small plates meant to be shared among each person in your party—ranging from goat-cheese eggplant to bacon-wrapped scallops. Standout main entrees include filet mignon, grilled swordfish, smoked salmon-topped pizza, and homemade fettuccine pomodoro.
Twin chefs Nicola and Fabrizio Carro have always done everything together. They were born together, grew up together in Alessandria, Italy, learned to cook together, and even grew identical mustaches to suit their identical faces. Most recently, they came to America together to become the joint culinary talents behind Miami Beach's Quattro Gastronomia Italiana. Along with their Northern Italian recipes, they also bring a dedication to quality cuisine—they even import many of their ingredients straight from their homeland.
With a wine list as comprehensive as the menu, the restaurant offers bottles that represent each of Italy's unique varietals and 20 wine-growing regions. As dinners of seafood-rich risotto or veal wraps stretch into the evening, it's hard not to pause and take in the rich Milanese-style decor in tones of warm browns, golds, and deep greens. A large, Calacatta marble bar trimmed with Makassar ebony is not only the room's grand focal point, but is also reportedly the very spot where the "Marco Polo walks into a bar" joke originated.
