Forte dei Marmi, a little piece of Italy in the heart of South Beach

Inspired by the Italian town of Forte de Marmi, the restaurant features elegant yet simple dishes that focus on quality of ingredients. The Italian fare consists of local organic produce, farm-raised prime meats, and wild-caught seafood and fish. With two Michelin stars under his belt, chef Antonio Mellino and his son Raffaele Mellino head the new Italian restaurant.

The interior design of Forte Dei Marmi is modern yet sophisticated. The atmosphere is relaxing by day and alluring by night – perfect for date night or a fun night out with the girls. If fresh Italian food and organic drinks don’t lure you in, the gelato certainly will – but more about that later.

My sister and I were welcomed with their famous organic cocktail, Fool’s Paradise – a concoction of vodka, grapes, basil, lime, and ginger beer. After a few sips, the dishes started to emerge.

We were presented with a variety of dishes from Forte Dei Marmi’s menu, selected by the chef.

The food was scrumptious to say the least– specially my personal favorite, the lobster risotto. But the winner of the night was unquestionably the pistacchio gelato! The presentation was Instagram-worthy and the pistachio flavor was rich and intense. Big enough for two, the Italian treat could certainly be devoured by one – If you are a gelato enthusiast like I am.
