After Vino & Caffe in Miami Beach, and Ni. Do. Mozzarella Bar in Biscayne Blvd, Giorgia and Matteo land in Coconut Grove. a place where you can still walk, where everything is smaller, less chaotic, less touristy.
Sapore di mare is in fact is a small restaurant with few tables and seats, furnished as if it were a boat, with the typical colors of Capri and the Amalfi Coast.
Giorgia from Naples and Matteo from Florence,have been working together for over 18 years in international restaurants and companies such as in Relais Chateaux around the world, until in 2008 they decided to start their own business and start their adventure here in Miami.

The raw materials here are of the highest level: scampi from Mazara del Vallo, sea bass, octopus, turbot, Mediterranean cod, clams, extra virgin olive oil of first cut, homemade pasta, organic chickens, raised and bred naturally without cages on the farm, Alba truffles, Parma ham, Sardinian pecorino cheese and Sardinian sea urchin, roe and Sicilian tuna, , cheeses from Italian dairies of excellence, Cetara anchovies, and an indescribable amount of other ingredients and wines that travel daily from their places of origin to the kitchen of the restaurant.
The wine proposal is highly selected as well. Inspired by the family traditions and the Mediterranean cuisine with which Giorgia E Matteo grew up, in their restaurant, they offer typical dishes such as the famous Cacio & Pepe and fresh fish, cooked express and presented with simplicity.
"Freshness is our trademark of quality. A good meal is a journey that leads you to the rediscovery of the pleasures that you had forgotten but also that leads you to magical places that you do not know yet".
The reception is also extremely followed by Veronica Paderni, Matteo's sister, she welcomes you on board every day, overwhelming you in a friendly and convivial atmosphere, typical of a truly Italian family.
