If a getaway in Tuscany isn’t in the cards, no need to fret, as we’ve rounded up five new Italian restaurants that are more conveniently located. From homemade pastas and coal-fired pizzas to authentic gelato from Italy’s most famed purveyor, you’ll be able to indulge in the delights of rustic cuisine without the eight-hour flight. Biella Ristorante.
Since opening in April in Sunny Isles Beach, Biella Ristorante has been serving up delicious Italian fare inspired by the quaint township in Northern Italy for which it was named. Far from traditional, the menu highlights such dishes as a smoked salmon pizza made with a jet-black squid ink crust, foie gras toast with raspberry marmalade, and pastrami brisket with bone marrow. The kitchen also offers a rotating selection of pasta specialties “fatta en casa,” or made in-house. 17082 Collins Ave., Sunny Isles Beach, 305-974-0174
