By moving from trailer/diner in Hallandale to staid strip-mall eatery in North Miami Beach, Little Italian Tavern has lost its uniquely cozy ambiance, but the new 72-seater is clean and exudes the proper aura for a neighborhood red-sauce joint. More important, the Tavern's solid, home-cooked Italian fare, friendly family service, and low, low prices remain intact. Skip the pizzas and start instead with crisply fried calamari or a fresh and bountiful house salad. For the main course, most diners seem to delight in the house specialty of spaghettini with one of "21 sauces." More exotic picks stick out on the specials list, and on any given night might include polenta with rabbit cacciatore, or duck roasted with rosemary and garlic. Broward's loss is Dade's gain, and Little Italian Tavern remains well worth your while for laudable, affordable Italian cuisine.
