Miami’s most serious foodies rejoiced when famed international Italian brand Serafina opened its first dining destination in Miami’s iconic Aventura Mall. The esteemed restaurant group boasts locations throughout the U.S. in Manhattan, the Hamptons and now Miami, as well as internationally in Brazil, Puerto Rico, Japan, South Korea, India, Dubai and Turkey.

They’re famous for their homemade pizzas, delectable pasta, fresh seafood and inventive Italian cocktails. But Serafina Miami brings something fresh to the table, boasting its own emblematic design, menu and personality. Here are five reasons we’re loving the brand-new Serafina Miami right now:

1. Location, location, location.

It boasts a prime real estate in one of the country’s highest-grossing retail spaces. Additionally, it’s anchored in the ideal spot in the mall, located on the second floor of the highly-anticipated, sparkling “New Wing” of the mall, situated right next door to Tesla and billionaire Sir Philip Green‘s sprawling Topshop & Topman stores.

2. The mouth-watering, cheat-worthy, decadent menu.

From the brand’s famed “Fabulous”pizzas including the classic Margherita or the cheesy Formaggi D’Italia pie, to rich the Tagliolini Al Tartufo Nero pasta dish, each bite at the Italian eatery is more delicious than the next. And don’t forget the selection of fresh seafood and vegetables if you prefer something lighter. There are even vegan and gluten-free options to please everyone!

3. Inventive cocktails.

Transport yourself to the Mediterranean and sip on the signature Terra Spritz cocktail, which is their own take on the classic Aperol Spritz—made with Gra’it, Italicus (Bergamont liqueur), Peychaud’s Aperitivo and Q Grapefruit Soda. Another must-try is the refreshing Italian Bouquet to start your meal, created with Cocchi Americano Aperitif, St Germain and Q Tonic Water.

4. It’s extraordinarily Instagrammable.

5. Its local VIP crowd.
