La Gazzetta very quietly opened up nearly two months ago in Brickell. Under the ownership of Tosca founder, Stephan Fortier, the eatery seems to be doing pretty well according to the public. La Gazzetta's publicists describe the restaurant's cuisine as inspired by the Italian Riviera and packed with Mediterranean flavors, noting that the new eatery also has outdoor terrace seating with a movie theater. Here's what the guests have to say so far:

The Dreamy News: One Yelper writes, "This spot first won me over with its heavenly, smooth, homemade burrata" adding, "I dream of it from time to time." She raves about small plates like "prosciutto, meatballs and artichoke" as well as a miso salmon that "literally melted in my mouth." [Yelp]

The "Barely Edible" News: Not so enthusiastic about the new spot, one reviewer states "I give this place a few more months at best." Why? "Freezing cold" crostini made with "old" and "soggy" bread; "barely edible," "obviously bottled" dressing; and "disengaged" management. [Yelp]

The Twitter Worthy News: Over on Twitter, a guest is pleased with Brickell's new addition of La Gazzetta. He writes, "Had a great lunch today @LaGazzettaMiami excellent addition to #Brickell. [Twitter]

The Hairy News: One reviewer on Yelp claims she found hair on her pizza. "They replaced it of course... But it freak us out," she writes. As for the rest of the dishes, only one seemed to do it for her, the $11 meatballs, which were "pretty good and only thing worth paying for." [Yelp]

The Short and Sweet News: In a couple of sentences, one yelper professes her newfound love for Brickell's newest eatery: "What a beautiful place! .... all I can say is that the meal was incredible and the service was top notch. Everything we tried was great, especially the carpaccio." [Yelp]
