Visa-O1 debuted in Miami Beach two years ago. Chef Renato Viola and partner Umberto Mascagni truly loved pizza and had a simple goal: for the public to be able to taste true traditional Italian pizza. Now they are opening a 2nd location for their business and it’s located at the former Miami Smokers Express pop-up space (1000 S. Miami Ave., Miami). Here is more information about Visa-O1 Brickell :
According to Urban Daddy :
“Elbow room. Yep. It exists now. Instead of a mere 18 seats, the new location has a patio and a dining room. The latter is quite spacious, with shelves displaying Sinatra albums and moka pots. And as ever… The pizza is serious business. It employs flour imported from master pizzaiolo Renato Viola’s farm in Italy, of course. He’s also a world champion in acrobatic pizza, which basically results in a ridiculously light, thin, crispy pie that’s somehow chewy, too. Traditional is fine. But extraordinary is better. You can’t go wrong with a margherita or pepperoni pie. But we suggest venturing to the Special and Extraordinary sections of the menu. That’s where the Jacqueline with truffle oil and runny eggs lives. And the Star Luca filled with ricotta cheese and spicy salami. Luck favors the bold. Relax. They’ve got beer and wine. Mostly of the Italian variety. Moretti. Super Tuscans. You get it.” written by Jackie Gutierrez-Jones.
According to New Times :
“The Brickell menu will list the same dishes offered at the original location. Additionally, wine and beer will be served. Pies are divided into categories: traditional, special, and extraordinary. Prices start at $4.99 for an individual size and top out at $16.99 for a 13-inch, with toppings such as fresh burrata stracciatella, natural honey, truffle oil, and Nutella. One of the best-selling dishes is the Instagram-worthy Star Luca — a star-shaped pizza filled with ricotta cheese, spicy salami, mozzarella, and San Marzano tomato sauce ($14.90). Other choices include calzones and antipasti. You can also opt to build your own salad. Vegans will be happy to know they can create their own pizza using vegan cheese.” written by ALEXANDRIA GUERRA.
According to Eater :
“The two-year-old South Beach favorite — that has gained a somewhat of a cult following in its short lifetime — takes over the space right next to Dolores, But You Can Call Me Lolita at 1000 South Miami Avenue. The menu will remain burrata, honey, truffle and even Nutella. Plus, this location will also serve up wine and beer. But the team isn’t done expanding, however, with its third outpost set to debut in Wynwood sometime next month. Visa-O1 Brickell is now open every weekday from 11:30 a.m. to midnight, Saturday from noon to midnight and Sunday from noon to 11 p.m.” written by Olee Fowler.
