A place where we cook for our family
Hence our culinary proposal is so exquisitely simple: we only use authentic Italian products and fresh ingredients to deliver our rendition of traditional Italian recipes.
The space we've created is elegantly casual, yet modern and relaxed, and it features live cooking and our signature wood-fired pizza oven as its centerpiece.
We invite you to share with your loved ones our passion for Italian cuisine.
Maria Báez Zeller
Maria's passion for cuisine was instilled in her at a young age by her family, and at the age of 18 she left home to attend the renowned culinary school of Johnson & Wales, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Food Service Management and Culinary Arts. Afterwards, she attended L’Ecole Lenôtre, in Paris, where she received four Specialty Degrees.
In 2008 she became part of the kitchen team at the Mandarin Oriental in Brickell Key, where she helped run a top notch kitchen.
In February 2013 she co-founded Forno Bravo, a modern trattoria with an innovative approach to traditional Italian gastronomy. In 2019 it opened in Wellington, Florida, as Piatto Bravo.
La Vera Napolitana.
Eating pizza is amazing, but creating your own pizza is just special.
Made in Modena, Italy, our state-of-the-art wood-fired oven is equipped with a temperature control system and a rotating floor that ensures each pie is evenly cooked to perfection, with just the right amount of crisp all around.
Italian food goes with wine... or cocktails
Is there anything more idyllic than overlooking a piazza with a glass of wine in hand in a patio that seems right from a postcard? We would argue not much except that, maybe instead of wine, you'd enjoy a classic Italian cocktail.
When it comes to Italian cocktails, there are so many good ones, it’d be a waste to go out to an Italian restaurant and only order wine. Yes, wine is a must, but if you want to get authentic, order a classic Italian cocktail, preferably during aperitivo... or happy hour how we call it in America.
Great Drinks. Great Times.
Indulge yourself with our exquisite and refreshing specialty cocktails, wines from some of the best regions in the world, and our selection of imported, national and locally crafted beer. If you're in the mood for vodka, whiskey, bourbon, tequila, gin or rum, our bar offers some of the world's best. And after a delightful dinner, treat yourself to one of our handpicked Italian liqueurs and cordials.
Join us at our bar, and enjoy sharing drinks in a modern and relaxed ambiance.
