About

Socialite and reality-show bad boy Fabian Basabe has opened an elegant Italian restaurant on the site of the old La Bussola. Chef Vittorio Lozzi, who made his U.S. debut there in the ‘80s, is still in fine, old-fashioned form. Best is his perfect spaghetti alla carbonara, unlike any other in Miami. A silken, egg yolky sauce is just slightly warmed from the heat of the fresh al dente spaghetti with divinely smoky bits of charred pancetta and meltingly sautéed onions. A dusting of pecorino and a heavy dash of roughly ground black pepper finishes it off. Other pretty good options include sliced octopus over well-seasoned mashed potatoes and a tasty but heavy breaded veal chop Milanese. The wait staff exudes old-fashioned charm, but the wine list needs help.
