The Big Cheese is the kind of pizzeria every neighborhood wishes it had. The staff is dedicated and efficient. Plates are piled high with Italian classics at bargain rates. Then there's the exquisite "Miami Slice," which comes topped with sweet baked ham and pineapple, savory ricotta cheese, and cinnamon. The menu spans several pages and includes imported Italian pasta, Michelle's boneless Buffalo wings (chicken fingers done Buffalo-style), fried-oyster caesar salad, and full meals (baked and sautéed pasta dishes, seafood, and plenty of other items). If you're overwhelmed by options, go for the classic lasagna — it's truly one of the tastiest and most affordable pasta dishes in Miami. Expect crowds. You won't find Italian food this good and this inexpensive anywhere else.
