Macchialina trumpets the same attractive attributes as its sister South Beach Pubbelly venues: pleasing, well-priced fare, craft beers and wines, and an amiable neighborhood-restaurant vibe geared toward the contentment of locals. A selection of salumi and cheeses, all Italian imports, is just one way to start off with this concise but versatile menu. But Macchialina is mostly a combination of antipasti and pasta. One of our favorite antipasti features a custardy polenta with sausage and cipollini onions. Margherita pizza is a pure and simple rendition boasting a salted crust crowned with mozzarella di bufala and a puree of fresh tomatoes. Pastas include a rich and filling lasagna layered with short ribs and Taleggio cheese, and cavatelli with meatballs, porchetta, and Pecorino. Peroni beer is on tap, and a concise all-Italian wine list is composed of mostly midrange bottles. Finish with the coolest tiramisu in town: a mason jar of creamy mascarpone pudding capped with chocolate crumbles and espresso granita.
