When restaurateurs and founders of Serafina Restaurant Group Vittorio Assaf and Fabio Granato were lost at sea, the friends made a promise to one another that if they eventually saw land they would open the best pizza and pasta restaurant they could think of.

Years later, they’ve launched close to a dozen locations of Serafina everywhere from New York City to São Paolo – and now in Miami in the Art Deco and super swanky Dream South Beach.

The new location, which focuses on northern-Italian cuisine, features family recipes that have been handed down from generation to generation. Plus, it boasts a traditional wood stone oven to make the more than 24 varieties of pizza on the menu.

The indoor-outdoor dining room can accommodate 129 diners and the indoor seating area showcases a variety of Italian frescoes by artist Michela Martello.

Chef Marco Zuccala has created a menu that offers specialty dishes such as carpaccio di filetto con salsa di tartufi neri (thin sliced prime filet mignon with warm black truffle sauce and boiled potatoes) and tartufo nero pizza with robiola, fontina and truffle cheese, truffle oil and sliced black truffles (shown above). Are you ready to mangia?

To remember you're at the beach, the restaurant will even serve popsicles for dessert.

Serafina Dream South Beach will serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and takeout daily. Then outdoor seating area is a relaxed atmosphere where sunbathers can come off the beach, sip fresh fruit juices and grab a bite to eat.
