Any mention of this sleek Italian, Casa Tua will provoke a gentle nod of approval from anyone who knows about restaurants in Miami. Casa Tua is a 1925 two-storey Mediterranean villa nestled away behind hedges and an iron gate. The owner is an ex-polo patron from a wealthy family whose surfer wrist bands still poke out from the cuffs of his Armani blazer. He and his stunning hostesses happily welcome the wealthy clientele, whom they seat at a smart communal dining table or at one of the few tables in a flower and herb garden. The kitchen produces impeccably turned-out pastas and delicate Mediterranean dishes. Casa Tua will smash your Miami budget to pieces, but most people say it is worth it. Unfortunately the sleek cocktail lounge upstairs is for members only, but there is a smaller version downstairs pegged onto the restaurant.
