Giorgio Rapicivoli dives into his roots, plating takes on Italian cuisine along Coral Gables’ sunny Giralda Plaza. The Chopped champ and local restaurant impresario has put some genius twists on Italian standards, like Wagyu Beef Carpaccio with crispy sunchokes and Little Gem Salad with cacio y pepe dressing. The pastas are all worth a try, though the Short Rib Bolognese will have you rethinking every meat sauce you’ve ever had. If you want even more meat, the 28-ounce Bone-in NY Strip will easily feed you for multiple meals.

After shuttering his much-beloved Eating House, Giorgio Rapicivoli returned to his Italian roots with this pasta-filled masterpiece in the Gables. His creations lean a little lighter and more tropical than traditional Italian offerings, with plates like Pasta al Limone dusted with 24-month aged Parm and a whole lemon, and Sea Scallops alla Cacciatore with fennel and San Marzano tomato sauce. That’s not to say you’re going to walk out here with a bounce in your step. But by the time you stroll Giralda Plaza and get back to your car, you may just escape that inevitable post-mangia food coma.
