Getting it Right
The unmistakable 1920’s look can be seen throughout the large dining room, from the heavy red curtains that create a separate space for larger parties to wood paneling on the walls and even the decorations on the glass dividers. No design element was left to chance. Large, low hanging light fixtures and the wood chairs and tables join the padded booths to create a lush, inviting atmosphere that almost transfers the diner to that evocative era.
One of the main focal points in the large room are button tufted back booths upholstered in black vinyl. The booths which are made in the USA by skilled American craftsmen blend in perfectly with the classic old school motif of the Prohibition era and offer more than just comfortable seating. They actually became an integral part of the design as well as maximizing the restaurant’s floor space providing guests with much desired privacy.
Divieto offers over 70 signature Italian dishes, from thin crust pizzas to their signature Ruota di Parmigiano, and their bar showcases a wide selection of Italian, American and International wines that pair well with their entrées, a traditional cocktail list as well as a house list of 1920’s inspired drinks is available. Divieto is also active in the community with Feed the Frontlines Miami which supports other Miami restaurants by creating opportunities for their employees to prepare and distribute free meals for hospital workers around the city.
