Eat Street Films Il Fiorentino at J. Wakefield (Photos)

Cooking Channel's Eat Street was back in Miami, filming another season of the popular show that features food trucks and the chefs (and fans) that drive them to success.

This past long weekend saw the show's crew at two major south Florida breweries to highlight a few chef-driven mobile eateries, including Il Fiorentino.

The truck is owned and operated by chef Lorenzo Lapi. Lapi, who hails from Firenze, has experience working in Michelin Star rated restaurants in Italy and Europe, and decided to start a food truck featuring authentic Italian cuisine as a way to introduce his cooking to the Miami community. Chef Lorenzo, as he's affectionately known, eventually hopes to turn this endeavor into a brick and mortar restaurant, but for now, his truck serves home made pasta with freshly made sauces simmered for hours to marry the flavors.
