The Alley makes very solid pizza that has a soft, bubbly crust, a tasty whipped ricotta that is very easy to finish, and pasta you will not regret ordering. But the food is not what makes this place slightly remarkable. The stylish little restaurant attached to The Betsy Hotel happens to be right on Ocean Drive, where you will find pretty much nothing but the absolute worst restaurants in Miami. The Alley is not one of them, and is thus a true lifesaver if you happen to be hungry in this area and would rather not spend $65 on medium-rare chicken tenders and a Long Island Iced Tea that could unclog your sink.
