Originally from Bergamo, Italy, Sylvano Carrara moved to Miami Beach from New York in 1993. Former owner the famed Sports Cafe, Sylvano Carrara has since opened up 2 other locations, Sylvano on Alton Road and Sylvano South located on Collins.
Sylvano's is a bargain Italian restaurant that offers just about everything a sports fan could ask for. Five TV screens strategically placed around the room are tuned to one sporting program or another, and photographs on the walls spotlight athletes of yesteryear. The menu sports Sport's Italian food, a popularly priced pastiche of pizzas, pastas, risottos, salads, seafood, and meats.
