Our story

Osteria Morini brings the soulful cuisine and convivial spirit of Italy – particularly Emilia-Romagna, known as the birthplace of prosciutto, mortadella, Parmigiano, and balsamic vinegar – to local vibrant neighborhoods. Since debuting the flagship 10 years ago in Soho, New York City, Osteria Morini has become a premier, highly acclaimed, exciting Italian concept, with other prominent locations in Long Island, Washington D.C., New Jersey, and now in Miami Beach. The Morini menu features signature fresh pastas, including Cappelletti (truffled ricotta ravioli with prosciutto), alongside Battilardo (our meat and cheese board), seasonal entrées (roast chicken, rack of lamb, strip steak) and fresh seafood (branzino, our rotating raw bar). The beverage program at Morini is comprised of a robust Italian wine list with fun, refreshing cocktails that pair naturally with the cuisine.

Osteria Morini operates as part of Altamarea Group, an award-winning, multiple Michelin Star, global hospitality firm with 12 restaurants worldwide. Altamarea Group, through its talented team of employees, creates special memories through exceptional hospitality, delivering the highest level of food and service across distinct brands and concepts. Osteria Morini Miami Beach is located at the brand new Kimpton Hotel Palomar and features a spacious outdoor patio overlooking a beautiful canal and a rooftop with stunning views of Biscayne Bay.
