World-renowned fashion designer, Roberto Cavalli’s eye for fashion translates directly to his two-story, villa-style South Beach restaurant & lounge, Cavalli Miami, a place with a luxurious taste for food and design. The space is donned in his signature exotic animal prints and distinctive florals, with classy mirrored accents and larger than life photographs of Cavalli line the walls as a career tribute celebrating his last 35 years in fashion.
This high-profile venue was designed to “entertain” starting with the authentic Italian menu created by Executive Chef Stefano Mazzi, inspired by traditional family recipes from Italy. The pastas are made using Mazzi’s grandmother’s recipe: fresh eggs, flour, and a rolling pin. The menu is à la carte style, made from the freshest seasonal ingredients to enhance the typical Italian flavors with Tuscan influences and a touch of innovative gourmet. The starter menu offers traditional Italian dishes including handmade Gnocci, Crab Ravioli, Tagliolini with Lamb Ragu and Black Truffle Risotto. Some of the main dishes featured are Seared Tuna, Pan Roasted Chilean Seabass and Lamb Ossobuco. The elegant mise en place does the rest, the refined details and rich printed fabrics turn every meal into an opulence that appeals to all five senses.
The cocktail menu was created by Lorenzo Cassano where guests can enjoy signature cocktails made with the freshest organic ingredients, herbs, teas, roots and essences, made to satisfy even the finest palate. The restaurant also features a personal sommelier on-site at all times.
The decadent dessert menu features favorites including Lavender Crème Brulee, Lemon Sorbet, Chocolate Bombolini and homemade Silician gelato.
Post-dinner, the ultra-lounge upstairs encourages guests to enjoy in signature Cavalli style, surrounded by zebra and jaguar prints. Cavalli, who also owns nightlife venues in Milan and Dubai.
