Sapore di Mare — Italian for "Taste of the Sea" — concentrates on seafood dishes from Campania, a region in Italy that includes Naples and the Amalfi Coast. All of the fish is sourced exclusively from the Mediterranean, and Sapore is known for its crudo selection. Begin with the branzino carpaccio, which is made using only the fillets of Italian sea bass. The raw white fish — enhanced with Tuscan olive oil, lemon juice, and ground pepper — comes arranged atop slivers of crunchy green apple. There's a lot to like about this light and fresh starter. If you choose to veer off the seafood path, try the tagliolini cacio e pepe. Sapore has achieved the kind of convivial atmosphere that attracts the most enviable clientele: year-round locals who've come to embrace the eatery as their second kitchen. This feat is all too rare in Miami.
