Praised as truly authentic classic Italian cuisine, Il Forno Ristorante's refined approach to Italian gastronomy features the finest local and imported ingredients. Indulge in dishes of our home made Pappardelle Pasta with Wild and Porcini Mushrooms or Grilled Veal Chop al Rosmarino to entice your appetite. Then revel in the simple, but rich flavor of the Chef’s signature entrée of Veal Ossobuco alla Milanesa and pair with a glass of wine from the outstanding wine selection. End with our seductive Mousse di Ciocolatto al Grand Marnier. The ambiance and atmosphere are enhanced by Il Forno's rustic, open kitchen with wood-burning oven, offering a warm and intimate setting for your dining experience. Whether you are enjoying a cocktail at our full service bar or dining al fresco on the terrazza or listening to live music in the dinning room, we are sure to make your dining experience a memorable one.

Oolite received 3.5 stars from the Miami Herald for Chef Partner Kris Wessel's original concept of Healthy Regional Fare inspired by the food culture and bounty of product in the region of Florida, the American South, the Caribbean and South America. Created as a healthy based cuisine, the entire menu is gluten free and protein specific. Oolite's kitchen technique is diverse using modern and time tested approaches to production including slow cooking, poaching, steaming, smoking, grilling, dehydrating and preserving. The seasonal menu allows a continual creative approach, always identifying with locals on favorite food use and recipes. Oolite is housed in a Frank Gehry building, just two steps off Lincoln Road, and adjacent to the Convention Center and the Fillmore Theater. Oolite's Craftsman interior design references mid century American with hand crafted wood tables, wainscoting, glass and pure Oolite limestone. The Artisanal wine and beer program was singled out for originality.

"I had the burger and mac n cheese. The Oolite salad was a perfect compliment to the lunch entree. Excellent service and quality, full of taste, gluten free dishes."

"Oolite offers two brunch deals for customers to choose from. Excellent gluten free brunch options that are full of flavor and satisfy. The French toast with glazed bananas really hit the spot. Bottomless Mimosas or Bloody Mary's really make this an affordable brunch with gilt free options. Anais was our waiter. He has waited on me several times and is always on top of the service. The attentive service and amazing food makes this the new place to be for brunch on Sundays. Oh - and don't miss the smooth sounds from the live band. What a great new way to spend Sundays on South Beach, just off Lincoln Road. Plenty of parking available."

"Gluten Free options by Chef Kriss make this new South Beach hot spot the new place eat. Food was tasty and our waiter was excellent. Flank steak on steamed spinach, mac and cheese, brussel sprouts with goat cheese, and mango coconut cream pie were all delicious."
