HIP TRATTORIA FOR PASTA & PIZZA.

Tucked away in the back of The Betsy hotel in South Beach, this hip trattoria turns out house-made pasta, charcuterie and Neapolitan style pizza with 10 different topping combinations, all paired with Italian-style cocktails and a deep wine list. Retro artwork, wood paneled ceilings and dangling wicker lanterns outfit the trendy space, while the adjacent walk-up window serves crepes and gelato.

Must-order: The housemade pasta dish of the day, which can be anything from bucatini caccio e peppe to rigatoni carbonara.

Insider tip: After dinner, don't miss the adjacent walk-up window serving crêpes and housemade gelato.
