The husband and wife duo behind this casual Italian restaurant are doling out house-made pastas, fresh pizzas, and an impressive wine selection at <em> very </em> reasonable prices. The Spanish-roofed spot right by the 7th Ave Bridge is almost made for big group meals and family dinners, but Crust also delivers to downtown Miami and Brickell. The pizzas are pretty outstanding, especially when topped with sirloin tips, mushrooms, and caramelized onions.
When owners Klime and Anita Kovaceski invite you in for what they describe as “an orgy of food and wine,” they’re not lying. Because the restaurant is so reasonably priced, your whole crew can go to town on the epic menu of house-made pastas, specialty pizzas, meatballs, and risottos without thinking too much about how much cash you’re dropping. And you can wash it down with a selection of wines that features some stuff you won’t find elsewhere, all priced so that you won’t have to think twice about ordering a fifth bottle.
Like a cocaine smuggler's boat in the 1980s, the wave of great dining options is slowly making its way down the Miami River, and the folks behind Crust were way ahead of the game. The husband and wife team behind one of Miami’s best restaurants are not only making homemade Italian-style pies featuring luxe toppings like sirloin tips, mushrooms, and caramelized onions, but they're doing it for actually reasonable prices. Go figure.
