"My family and I are so excited to bring Aventura its only Italian Family Style restaurant. Aventura is such a great family city, with parks, great schools and beautiful homes, it's time it had a great family restaurant to go with it," says Mickey Maltese, Former Owner of Matteo's Italian Restaurant in Hallandale
Our restaurant features a 20 person bar, comfortable furnishings, dimmed lighting, and a blend of soft caramel colors, accented with a few bright fabrics to create a modern twist to an authentic Italian eatery. Our name, inspired by Maltese's two children, Marcelo Luca and Isabella, will feature walls accented with baby pictures, as well as a see-through kitchen and a stunningly beautiful mocha polished concrete floor.
Our family-style portions of popular Italian-American comfort foods, will feature a variety of classic appetizers like clams casino and fried zucchini, savory soups like pasta fagioli and crisp salads, like our Italian chopped salad with imported salami and provolone. The menu will also offer numerous pasta dishes, baked Italian specialties like Mascarpone meat lasagna that will take center stage, plus a host of veal, pork, chicken and seafood entrees.
Chef Luciana Crosa, a graduate of the Culinary institute and Florida native, who shares Maltese's vision, will be working alongside her mother, sister and brother, making it a true family inspired restaurant.
