IF YOU'RE A FOODIE BUT ARE PUT OFF BY THE BIG CHECKS BEING SERVED UP AT MANY OF THE LOCAL HOT SPOTS THIS IS YOUR TIME TO DINE.

AND KNEW TO MIAMI SPICE IS AN ITALIAN EATERY.

LISA PETRILLO GETS A TASTE OF WHAT'S ON THEIR MENU.

WELCOME TO SPASO A CHARMING RUSTIC ITALIAN RESTAURANT IN THE HEART OF COCONUT GROVE.

WHO THROUGHOUT HIS CAREER HAS PREPARED SPECIAL DISHES FOR V.

S INCLUDING TWO U.

S.

PRESIDENTS GYMER CARTER AND RONALD REAGAN.

AND DOES SPASO MEAN ANYTHING.

ENJOYMENT, ENTERTAINMENT.

Reporter: CHEF SAYS IT'S ALL ABOUT KEEPING IT REAL AT THIS NEW HOT SPOT.

WE HAVE A SLOGAN THAT REALLY ESTABLISHED WHAT IT STANDS FOR.

IT'S SIMPLE RUSTIC YOU KNOW.

WE HAVE A TREMENDOUS RESPECT FOR THE INGREDIENTS THAT WE USE SO WE LEAVE THEM AS THEY ARE.

THE ONLY THING WE HAVE TO ADD IS THE LOVE AND THE PASSION WE FEEL TO IT.

Reporter: SPASO IS ONE OF 200 RESTAURANTS PARTICIPATING IN THE MIAMI SPICE PROGRAM.

THEY CAME UP WITH THE DISCOUNTED DINING PROGRAM SOME 15 YEARS AGO.

IT'S SUCH A GREAT THING FOR THE CITIZENS OF MIAMI.

THEY GET TO ENJOY ALL THE TOP RESTAURANTS FOR $39.

RESTAURANTS THAT HAVE CHECK AVERAGES UP TO $150 A PERSON.

THE DEAL IS $39 PER PERSON FOR A THREE COURSE DINNER AND $23 FOR A THREE COURSE LUNCH.

ONE ITEM ON THE LUNCH IS PIZZA FOLGI WITH MILD MUSHROOMS AND A TOUCH OF TRUFFLE.

I DEFINITELY TASTE TRUFFLE IN IT.

IT'S JUST SO DELICATE AND THE MUSHROOMS ARE KIND OF MELTING IN YOUR MOUTH.

IT'S PIZZA HOW I LIKE IT.

SUPER THIN.

MY KIND OF PIZZA.

Reporter: ON THE DINNER MENU AN APPETIZER IS THE TUNA CARPACCIO.

THAT IS A TRUE ITALIAN TUNA CARPACCIO.

IT'S SO GENTLE.

Reporter: A DINNER MAIN COURSE IS AN 8-OUNCE BEEF.

MY FIRST THOUGHT IS MAYBE YOU THINK STEAK IS HEAVY.

THIS IS A LIGHT SUMMER STEAK.

IT AM COMES OUT SUPER LIGHT.

ALMOST ROOM TEMPERATURE.

COOKED PERFECTLY AND THEN THE CHEESE ON TOP.

Reporter: AND FINALLY AN ITALIAN CORTEDETO.

MIAMI SPICE IS ON NOW THROUGH SEPTEMBER 30TH.

SPASO IS OPEN SEVEN DAYS A WEEK LUNCH AND DINNER.

WITH THE DELICIOUS TASTE OF THE.
