Following dessert, past the bubbling espresso machine behind the bar, across tables teeming with rambunctious business lunchers, and beyond the bustling waitstaff darting from table to table, I spot Paderni chatting with a new group. On cue, between bites of linguine and spaghetti, his audience erupts into spirited laughter. After two meals at Ni.Do., I've learned this: When Paderni speaks about food, people listen.

In those moments, the setting feels far from the razzmatazz of South Beach, the Design District, or even midtown. As with many other new joints along the Biscayne corridor, crowds flow into Ni.Do. hoping to steer clear of valet parking, overpriced crudos, and $20 crafted cocktails. They want mozzarella, grissini, and gelato. And they stick around for something simple and charming: a small place serving nothing more than good, laid-back Italian eats.
