                                      From my experience at Red Carpet ... soup of the day was good, ceasar salad was good andthe crab meat filled ravioli was good. Lasagna under par, squid ink risotto very bad, and fettuccine Alfredo was not bad. Overall ... food just standard or below. Maybe I ce on a bad day for the kitchen, however for the amount of 5 star reviews I found it very disappointing.

                                      Reviews matter. And thank goodness this place has such high ones. That's how I found it, by Googling "best Italian food in Miami." Total hidden gem. If not by word of mouth or reviews, no one would ever even see this restaurant. Tucked away on the SIDE corner of a little run-down strip mall on 8th street just a few feet away from Versailles is some of the best Italian food in town. It's the kind of place that makes you gasp a little bit when the door opens; the contrast is so pronounced. Understated elegance is the vibe inside. And this is a true family joint. A mom and her son. She's the chef and sometimes server, he's the greeter and doer of all other things. And the food... let me just say it was SPECTACULAR. Go. Go. Go. We're 25 minutes away, and we'll be back.

                                      Red Carpet's charm comes from the fact that it is a family-owned restaurant, run by warm and accommodating hosts. The ambiance is quiet and intimate. The food is delicious, and the desserts are the creation of the matriarch of the family. It is my family's go-to place for good food and excellent service.

                                      First time at Red Carpet and we all loved our food. We were received by Alfredo and his mother, who made us feel like we were dining at their home. The food was delicious and Nona’s chocolate truffle dessert was perfect.

                                      Ya conocíamos el restaurante de Downtown y este en la 8th superó nuestras expectativas. Pedimos la ensalada de alcachofas (Grilled Artichokes) y ravioli Osso Buco ¡todo delicioso! El local es sencillo y el servicio excelente, muy recomendable.

                                      Pasta was great. The ambience is perfect for a date or any special occasion. The portions for the price is on the lower side but still would be filling for any regular meal.

                                      Great food in a family owned and oriented restaurant, a jewel in a secluded strip mall, upgrades made it more open and spacious. A nice quiet location for a very good Italian meal.

                                      The food was delicious. You got to have the ravioli lobster(the sauce and the almond brought a delightful sensation to your palette , and the pistachio pie (the texture of the pie was nice and fluffy and moist). They have great customer service and the ambiance was quiet and nice. You can take a date there or your significant other, and you won’t regret it.

                                      A favorite! The only restaurant that we have eaten inside during the pandemic. Had been having a craving for Spaghetti Bolognese for several days and was not disappointed. Nice portion with the right amount of sauce

                                      Very good but the portions were a bit small and we are not big eaters!!! My husband ordered Ravioli and he only got 6. A portion of 8-9 would have been perfect.

                                      Fantastic service and the hosts ensure you are well looked after. They explain their menu items with great detail and provide recommendations where appropriate. They truly make you feel like you are eating at your mom’s house. The appetizers and salads were amazing. They actually were the best part of the meal. The main entrees were good too, but I felt the entrees were lack luster, and a bit overpriced based on the portions offered. The veal entree was good but under seasoned, as with the side of pasta offered, and my chicken parm, could not have been any thinner. After the fantastic fig and prosciutto salad, and my primi piatti of gnocchi amatriciana, that were fantastic, I was expecting something really amazing for the entrees, but there is where we were a bit underwhelmed. Desert was good and I would go back and give them another chance.
