  • Calamari
    The chefs at Calamari Restaurant strive to create familiar, comforting Italian foods with house-made ingredients and ocean-fresh fish. With an emphasis on seafood dishes, they grill salmon fillets and stuff lobster ravioli that the Miami New Times placed 50th on its list of 100 Favorite Dishes in 2010, calling it "the entrée that will keep you coming back for more." They also strive to recreate homemade flavors by creating their own Italian sausages and pasta, and roast pizzas in a wood-burning brick oven within sight of the dining room. In addition to an indoor dining room, outdoor tables with checkered cloths surround a garden fountain, "evoking a seaside picnic," according to a 2009 review in the Miami Herald.

  • Focaccia Bistro
    Small wrought-iron chandeliers, pendant lamps, and track fixtures bathe Focaccia Bistro's rustic-modern interior in an amber glow, illuminating towering wooden wine racks stuffed with European vintages. Though the white-clothed tables carry elegantly plated dishes of risotto, shellfish pasta, and handmade ravioli, the bistro's decor extends beyond Italy, enticing passersby with full-length front windows that evoke the aura of a 1930s-era café. French-influenced brunch consisting of croissants and baguettes further enhances the café vibe, as does the beret-sporting ghost that haunts the restrooms.

  • La Palma Ristorante
    At La Palma, the air is full of so much romance that it seems possible to pluck the moon from the sky with your fork. This is doubly the case if you order the popular Meze Lune Ripiene di Zucca—a pasta dish of moon-shaped, pumpkin-stuffed tortellini glazed with a butter and sage sauce. Even if you don't, though, the restaurant's scenery is enough to make a date memorable: the historic building was designed as a hotel in 1924 by George Merrick, whose Mediterranean architecture dots much of Coral Gables. Inside, fine art curated by the owners draws the eye. Outside, trees swathed in lights and a burbling stone fountain evoke an Italian courtyard. And on Wednesdays through Saturdays, live music adds to the dreamy quality of the setting. The Northern Italian food also transports diners to Europe. Homemade pastas mixed with seafood and meat sauce abound, including spaghetti with fresh clams and crab-filled ravioli. Entrees of braised veal shank, grilled tuna in a gorgonzola cheese sauce, and New Zealand rack of lamb make for satisfying dinners. There's also a prix fixe chef's special menu, which concludes with a homemade treat you get to choose from a dessert trolley, as long as you don't hop on and demand to be taken to Candyland post haste.
