Forte dei Marmi

Karen Fuchs
Though Forte dei Marmi in South Beach is named for the Tuscan seaside town known for its white mountain peaks, the restaurant's real draw is a softer, serene atmosphere in conjunction with its rustic Italian cuisine. When the tagliolini with crab, cherry tomatoes, and chili oil arrives at the table, it's obvious the pasta has been made à la minute, and the difference is discernible. This eatery brings upscale fare and a quiet elegance to South Beach dining, and from the looks of it, locals and visitors have quickly embraced the place.
