What are the desserts like at Scarpetta Miami Beach?

Answers from Our Experts (1)

The desserts at Scarpetta Miami Beach hail from the Italian culinary tradition, just like chef Scott Conant’s luxurious savory menu. Offerings include panna cotta and a semifreddo, but here you’ll also find a hint of Miami, thanks to tropical fruit garnishes and flavorings. When we visited the restaurant recently, we were treated to such sweets as mascarpone custard with mango salad and sorbet; pineapple cake with lemon verbena, macadamia nuts and mascarpone sorbet; polenta-crusted cheesecake with strawberries and strawberry gelato; chocolate zeppole (ricotta doughnuts) with a warm Nutella center and vanilla crème anglaise; and a rich chocolate cake with toasted almond gelatin and salted caramel sauce. If you prefer savory to sweet, though, you’ll also find an Italian cheese plate alongside a selection of Port and dessert wines at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant.
