This humble neighborhood trattoria in Aventura boasts all the attributes one seeks in Italian dining: simple, rustic Tuscan décor; friendly, knowledgeable, efficient service; a great selection of "25 wines for $25"; and, most pertinent, perfectly executed Italian cooking. Chef/owner Neal Cooper's streamlined style of cuisine reflects the European tradition of freshness over flair and the Old World idea that honest ingredients are beautiful as is. In other words, Il Migliore's spaghetti pomodoro needs only sweet, ripe, fire engine red tomatoes to impress. Eggy fettuccine noodles rely simply on earthy wild mushrooms and a light perfume of white truffle oil. Juicy slices of grilled skirt steak, tenderloin of pork, and lamb chops are minimally, and quite seductively, dressed in varying outfits of garlic, lemon, olive oil, and fresh herbs. Hell, this place would have to be considered one of our finest eateries if only for its crunchy, golden brown homemade French fries that come absolutely inundated with fresh herbs. Main courses are heartily portioned, yet almost all are priced less than $20.

Il Migliore is the best neighborhood Italian restaurant. I had my bridal shower of sixteen women for dinner one night. Usually when you have a catered party the food sucks!!. But not at Il Migliore. We all had antipasti to start. Delicios melon with San Daniele Prosciutto and Bresaola. Then we had choices of grilled lamb chops perfectly marinated and prepared to perfection, skirt steak, and baby chicken. Ohhh and the sides we had these fries that were fried golden brown and crispy that were tossed with herbs. THE BEST FRIES weve ever had. We also had the asparagus with parmesan as another side, fresh, sweet, perfectly cooked. For desert the Zucatto and flourless chocolate cake. To die for. I was totally not thinking of my diet this night. All my guest loved the food and raved about all night. I received wonderful comments from all my girlfreinds about the food. I feel happy about that. And the waiter that serviced our table Eduardo was genuinely sweet and attentive. He was an excellent waiter and I am happy he took such great care of us. Not to mention the owner Neal constantly coming by our table to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. I recommend this restaurant to everyone who wants a memorable experience which I received. I will continue to dine at Il Migliore which definetly stands by it's name "The Best"
