Oggi Caffe

1666 79th St. Causeway, #102 Miami Beach, FL 33141 | Mid/North Beach | 305-866-1238

Location Description:

Oggi Caffe lives up to its "warm and cozy" claim. The décor is elegant but unpretentious, serving as the backdrop for homey Italian classics and daily specials. Start with the zuppa di cozze, two dozen fresh mussels swimming in slightly spicy marinara, or the fragolina salad: arugula, endive, and strawberries with aged balsamic and grana padano cheese. The place is also a pasta factory, producing handmade agnolotti, fettuccine, penne, and spaghetti that bestow buttery richness on the palate. Fettuccine "sofia" is a wholesome mix of grilled chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, enormous sliced cloves of roasted garlic, and heaps of fresh tomatoes. Oggi satisfies the craving for everyday Italian, including the warm vibe; the owners personally greet patrons, loyal or new, as if they've been friends for years.
