Executive Chef Stefano Mazzi built the menu at Cavalli Miami with traditional Italian flavors as his inspiration. In fact, the restaurant's pastas are created by following his grandma's simple but effective recipe of two ingredients: flour and eggs. Dishes are offered à la carte and feature beloved Italian plates like crab ravioli, tagliolini, gnocchi and black truffle risotto, all of which are handmade.
Chef Mazzi's cocktail counterpart is Lorenzo Cassano who has crafted a beverage menu of unique refreshments crafted from local and organic ingredients. Cassano's level of dedication to cocktails shines through his sophisticated pairings use of the freshest organic ingredients, herbs, teas, roots and essences.
Upstairs, the ultra-lounge boasts music and dancing for guests to enjoy after dinner decorated in zebra and jaguar print. As a whole, Cavalli Restaurant & Lounge offers guests a unique dining experience full of fine foods, tasty cocktails and an exciting nightlife venue in the heart of Miami Beach. With less than a year under its belt, the new restaurant is already gaining popularity among locals and celebs alike.
