Part of Groot Hospitality

Casadonna is a coastal Italian-inspired waterfront restaurant developed in partnership between Groot Hospitality and Tao Group Hospitality. It is housed in the same Mediterranean Revival building as Miami’s historic women’s club, located in the city’s burgeoning Edgewater neighborhood. In fact, the name “Casadonna” is derived from the setting-it is a fusion of Italian words translating to “house of the woman.”

Riviera-style Italian cooking serves as the heart of Casadonna’s cuisine. The menu features the freshest and finest local and imported products, with signature handcrafted dishes. Plates are based around traditional recipes found in the coastal towns of Naples, Taormina, Bari, Positano, and Gaeta, and each is presented in a contemporary fashion. Bespoke cocktails and an extensive wine list will complement this approach.
