I love eating at Crust. The food is delicious and plentiful, the service is excellent and the prices are so reasonable. I have never had anything other than an excellent meal at Crust. The garlic rolls are the best I have ever had.

Every once in a rare while, a restaurant gets it right on all fronts. Such is the case for Crust. The food is reliably excellent, matched with a level of hospitality and service seldom found these days. Another attribute is that you needn’t spend a small fortune to enjoy fine dining and a bottle of wine.

Restaurant changed size of the plate (large pizza not available anymore) and waiter entered into an unnecessary dispite with us saying that restaurant had never served that pizza size.
Owner clarified they did in the past but are not offering it anymore.

Truly one of the best restaurants I’ve been to. The first time I came here I met the owner Anita, who was extremely welcoming and kind. That day I forgot my shopping bag beneath the table and I left close to closing time, and was supposed to fly out of
Florida the next day so she figured out my # using open table, called me and waited 45 minutes after closing for me to drive back and get my things. Since then I’ve recommended the place to everyone I know visiting Miami, and they all rave about it. The food, the atmosphere, and of course Anita! She is wonderful and the food is incredible!

Great food--super large portions on the chicken and pasta dishes. Really love the white pizza with spinach, ricotta and garlic. Worth the drive from Ft. Lauderdale-where we come from every time! Chicken Parm will feed a family of 4!

The restaurant is very cool, with really good food. The service was very good. Only frustration is that we have young kids and the waiter told us the kitchen wouldn’t want to make any changes to the menu — even things like sauce on the side made the waiter nervous. Eventually we were told the chef would make a “one time accommodation” to plain pasta for one of our kids. Other than that everyone loved it, we were just surprised about the lack of flexibility especially because we were there early before the dinner rush.

Me and my girl friends went on your last day in Miami and the food was amazing and so was the service! The portions are very large so you could easily share we made the mistake of all ordering our own food but we were able to take the left overs home. Highly recommend for any night it’s super good and amazing service.

Amazing! The food was so good that we ate every bite and then ordered some take out as well. The Meatball pizza is out of this world. We also tried the lasagna this time, and it was amazing. Crust is always on our list of places to visit when we’re in Miami. Thanks for the great food, awesome energy, and outstanding management.

As a local, I can say that this is one of the best restaurants in Miami. Everything about the experience was great - starting with our waiter, Julio, who guided us thru the menu and gave us great suggestions. The food was top notch with generous portions. The limoncello cake was out of this world. I loved that the manager or owner gave us both a complimentary port after dinner. I can't wait to return.

Anita the owner and Alex our waitress were phenomenal! Upon arrival on a Thursday night at 8pm valet was only $6 with no line no waiting. Once we entered the restaurant Anita greeted us with a warm and sincere welcome, addressed me by my first name and sat us immediately. It almost felt as if we knew each other for years. I can't remember the last time we were greeted in this manner at a restaurant. Alex was extremely courteous and made an effort to go above and beyond from start to finish. She was awesome! The food was delicious! We had the pinot grigio, garlic breads (best ever for me), pan fried mozzarella, truffled pizza (not crazy about the mountain of arugula piled on top), and chicken Milanese. All large portions. In addition, they do not fry with peanut oil which was very important because a member of our party has a peanut allergy. Upon leaving Anita offered us a dessert liquor on the house (shocker) and made it a point to say goodbye to everyone. Valet on the way out was also a breeze! If you're a fan of old fashion hospitality by a staff who genuinely cares and want a delicious and excellent dinning experience then you must make it a point to dine at CRUST. We will definitely be back! Thanks again Anita and Alex!!!!!

My wife and I went for dinner to the Crust. We absolutly can recommend that restaurant. Very engaged owners ensure that you will have a great dinning experience. Our waiter - Alex - she was great. Good recommendation for food and wine. We had a mediterian salad as a starter and Linguini Carbonara and traditional Peperoni Pizza as main dish. The final was a homemade Tiramisu. Everything was very delicious and freshly prepared. Be prepared for very big portions. We couldn't finish the main course.

Can't say enough good things about our dining experience at Crust. The service was friendly and professional. The food was exceptional. We had the garlic rolls, a side of meatballs, one order each of chicken picata and pasta carbonara. Huge portions! Was able to eat a whole meal of leftovers the next day. Yummy. The owner was sweet enough to stop by our table to welcome us and wish my niece a happy birthday. Will be going back.

We celebrated our anniversary at Crust and had a phenomenal experience. Anita greeted us at the door and ensured that we were treated very special. The food was absolutely amazing! Very generous portions, we had the Kale Salad, Garlic Rolls and a Shrimp Linguini dish (don't remember the exact name) followed by the Cannoli dessert. Everything was outstanding and the staff was very gracious and genuine.
