It starts before you arrive: the low guttural hum of expensive Italian sports cars — vivid-yellow Lamborghinis, sleek black Maseratis, fire-engine-red Ferraris — idling out front at the valet stand.

Once you're inside, the opulence of Cavalli Miami Restaurant & Lounge only escalates.

Mismatched white and bright floral-clothed tables are adorned with glistening wine glasses and glamorous decorative plates from famed Italian designer Roberto Cavalli's home collection. Plush seats are covered in the designer's signature zebra and leopard prints. Dramatic framed photos of the designer, surrounded by models, hang on the walls.
