The Big Cheese

A Miami institution that been providing good Italian food and pizza to the Miami masses. Even after major hurricanes they are able to provide food when others cant!
The place itself is big with plenty of tables and chairs inside as well an outdoor patio seating. It’s decorated with Miami Hurricanes memorabilia. It has two TV’s to watch your sporting events while you are eating your meal. It’s a family friendly place and is accommodating to large groups. They also serve beer and wine. No Hard alcohol or mixed drinks.
I have been coming here for years when I’m in the mood for traditional hand tossed pizza or some pasta or lasagna. I usually start off with a bowl of their new England Clam Chowder. It has bits of potatoes and chunks of clam. It’s creamy and delicious. It comes with two bread rolls. Then I either have some pasta like their lasagna or spaghetti parmesan. The lasagna has several layers of pasta, meat tomato sauce, and creamy ricotta and mozzarella cheese. Comes out Hot and Bubbling! The spaghetti comes with meat sauce that’s topped with mozzarella cheese and then its popped in the oven until the cheese is bubbling ! You get an order of garlic Rolls with every Pasta order!
They accept cash and credit cards. Place is kid friendly with a video game and a machine with a claw to get prizes. Also the pizza maker will give a dough ball to play with upon request!
