Visa-O1, Best New Hidden Gem in South Beach, Has Star Pizza

Page 2 of 2

Inside sits a row of chairs and people waiting. This restaurant has only a handful of tables, and the dining room takes up less space than the kitchen.

It does exist.

The kitchen door opens, and the aroma of freshly tossed dough and cooked pizza seeps out. We are told it will be a few minutes for a table. The smells are alluring, along with the sounds of '50s rock 'n' roll playing in the background and each table's patrons speaking beautiful Italian. This place is legit. Also, an explanation for the name of the restaurant is scrawled on the wall in Italian and English. It says the O-1 visa is reserved for those who possess "extraordinary ability."
