Tradition Meets Passion at La Màrtola in Buena Vista

Debuting last month steps away from the Miami Design District in the Buena Vista Neighborhood, La Màrtola brings a unique and vibrant dining experience and is a sought-after destination for food and wine enthusiasts. Situated at 4702 NE 2nd Ave, La Màrtola draws inspiration from the culinary treasures of the Italian, French, and Spanish Rivieras, celebrating the simplicity of ingredients and the quality of coastal foods through a creative lens into traditional flavors.

Cultivated by a passion for exceptional food and beverage, La Màrtola is spearheaded by esteemed partners: food and beverage impresario Paolo Domeneghetti and internationally recognized La Filiale owner Martino de Rosa. Hailing from New York City and Italy, both brought the European philosophy of generous, warm hospitality to Buena Vista. This philosophy not only tantalizes the taste buds but also captures the heart and soul, inspiring guests to savor the beauty of life through an exceptional meal shared with family and friends.

A sanctuary where guests are encouraged to celebrate and indulge, La Màrtola redefines the simplicity of the culinary landscape. Meals are filled with aromas from the Stefano Ferrara wood-fired pizza oven and custom-made wood grill by Grillworks with a gently illuminated open-air setting reminiscent of the coast of Saint Tropez, Marbella, or Portofino. Inside, La Màrtola presents an elegantly inviting European atmosphere in harmony with classic fresh flavors emphasizing quality through impeccable, fresh organic ingredients. The intimate bar at La Màrtola showcases a carefully selected collection of spirits, classic cocktails, and a wine list brimming with personality.

La Màrtola’s dining experience is relaxed, inviting guests to explore the menu comfortably. Ice-cold Farm-Fresh Oysters perfectly set the stage for signature selections like Orata Crudo with Ciliegini tomatoes & Taggiasca olives, and Bluefin Akami Tuna Tartare with Mediterranean gin, grapefruit & orange brilliantly combined with traditional plates like Lobster Salad or Paleta Ibérica con Chips. Delving deeper into the menu, the masterfully grilled Turbot and the Bistecca Fiorentina deliver exceptional simplicity. Presented family-style, these dishes capture the aura of this oasis. Alongside house specialties like Olive Ascolane, Fried Cremini, and Farm-Fresh Heirloom Tomatoes, La Màrtola delivers the pleasure guests crave.

La Màrtola’s wine list features select categories highlighting the menu: Champagne, Burgundy, Barolo, Rosé, and a “pocket list” showcasing special bottlings from winemaker “Friends of La Màrtola.” Cocktails include a variety of signature and classic drinks, as well as aromatic and herbal spritzes using local and natural ingredients.

La Màrtola will be open daily from lunch to dinner—12 PM to 10:30 PM—and will offer a seasonal menu alongside fresh and ever-changing daily specials. For more information, please visit
