  • "Did reservations for my anniversary, service was outstanding, called me by my last name every time i requested something, took a dessert with a happy anniversary and i didn't even request it. Food was amazing, great place.!"

  • "I have been eating at Café Abbracci for over 20 years. The food is consistently wonderful and the portions are generous. It's a great place to meet a client for lunch, as you can finish in under an hour. The service is equally great as the food. The restaurant also is great for dinner dates, business dates, and special occasions. Despite lots of new restaurants popping up over the years, I need look no further, as Nino's place is perfect in my book."

  • "We had a great time at Caffe Abbracci. The food was very good and very well served, the wait staff was efficient and attentive and fun to interact with, and most importantly the kitchen was willing to customize our meal. The chef made a simple and very good linguini pasta with olive oil, garlic, and pepper flakes for us that was not on the menu - and we were told that if there was anything else from Italian cuisine that we wanted, the chef would see if he could make it. The Chianti that the wait staff helped us choose was really good and well suited to the food we ordered. We would definitely recommend this restaurant for those who want really good food and service without the noisy distractions of today's "hip" entertainment restaurants."

  • "it has been consistently good for over 23 years that I've been going both for lunch and dinner. It wasn't busy on Tuesday thanks to the Heat game which kept the noise level down which was nice....some nights it can get very crowded and noisy"

  • "This is the third or forth time that I have been back to Caffe Abbracci. Not a chain. A local Gem. Service is personalized - even to relative strangers. No problem transferring the check from the bar to the dining room. Will be back."

  • "Caffe Abbracci exceeded every expectation - outstanding food, wonderful staff - no detail overlooked. I found the restaurant on line and would actually make a special trip to Miami just to eat there again. It was great to find a restaurant that understands service and quality, without feeling the need to be trendy. "

  • "People want to see and be seen. On Fridays and Saturdays and for lunch people are looking for their friends."

  • "This established Italian restaurant is a great place to meet clients and other business associates. It has an air of elegance and importance and is frequented by politicians, lawyers, bankers and others at lunchtime. I've never gone at dinnertime, so perhaps it is more romantic. The service is excellent as is the food. I love their pasta and fish dishes and amazing desserts. The Chihulli glass chandelier and wall decorations are colorful and rich and compliment the neutral room. I go back again and again and am never disappointed."
    Dined on 4/29/2014
  • "I would definitely recommend this restaurant and am looking forward to coming back. The waiters were friendly and beyond excellent. Everything they recommended was amazing. The Lobster Ravioli was to die for. The four cheese Risotto was out of this world."

  • "Abbracci is always dependable for great Italian food, really attentive, excellent service and an overall enjoyable dining experience in a friendly ambience that feels like a hidden neighborhood gem!"

  • "My wife made the reservation a few days before and requested a quiet table in a corner to help celebrate my 55th bday. When we got to the restaurant, they knew it was my bday, and had set up a nice balloon over the seat in a corner table. Service from entering to leaving was outstanding. Lucho took care of us at our table and his assistants were constantly roving around us to make sure we were good. All our food ordered was simply fantastic. The pasta is excellent, the sea bass wonderful and I ordered a veal parmagianna (not on menu) and they accommodated my request. It was also extremely delicious!! The meal ended with a nice bday dessert and they sang to the old man (me). I'll be back soon and often!!! Thanks Caffe Abbracci!!!"

  • "We loved the personal attention as we were greeted entering the restaurant and continuing throughout the meal. The Veal Porcini was excellent and the meal flavor ranked with the best of the meals we have had. The service was prompt yet unhurried so that we could enjoy our cocktails in the relaxing ambiance. My Lady was celebrating her birthday and I mentioned this in the reservation. She was surprised when a balloon "Happy Birthday" was presented. The staff also presented a beautiful personalized dessert and sung "Happy Birthday" Truly a "class act"."

  • "Love the service. They accommodate everyone's tastes. If you are in the mood for the veal scaloppini but you were tempted to order a pasta dish..they'll put them together for you! They really are great! Chef has been there forever a long with a good amount of the wait staff. It's so cozy. I'll keep going back. "

  • "I've been going to Abracci for years and it never disappoints me. The Tortellini Tatiana is my favorite pasta dish!"

  • "Café Abbracci is one of the oldest (over 25 years) restaurants in Coral Gables and still one of the very best. Pastas are outstanding; only to be surpassed by the quality of service. We always enjoy our dining experience here."

  • "Have been coming here for years, always found the atmosphere lively and fun and the food delicious. But my husband and I both found our meals disappointing on this last visit. I had pasta with a puttanesca sauce, nothing special at all. My husband had swordfish--the piece looked extremely thin, unusual for swordfish presentation, and my husband said it was largely dark meat. This is unacceptable for a fine dining establishment. Hope this was just a momentary glitch in quality and preparation."

  • "We loved celebrating our 31st at this neighborhood gem! The service was very attentive and professional. The meal was superb--a wonderful selection of various seafood dishes--almost too hard to select. But, the lobster ravioli and sea bass were tasty and memorable. The profiteroles were a delicious end to our special meal. Can't wait to return!"

  • "We had a reservation at 6:30 on the early side. I chose this restaurant for my husband's birthday. We were warmly greeted upon arrival and were treated so nicely for the entire time. The restaurant was quite empty when we arrived and completely full when we departed. Even when the restaurant was full it didn't seem hectic. The service is so professional and attentive. Each dish was prepared to perfection and served perfectly paced. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and will definitely return."

  • "Both appetizers & entrees were well prepared, tasty, and well presented. Service, however, fell short. This is a establishment that appears to have a strong repeat and upscale clientele. If you are not a regular (which we were not) then it appears (from our experience) that service seems to suffer. We saw our main waiter when ordering a bottle of wine and to order dinner. After that, he was non existent for the rest of the evening, even when it was time to request the check. All of the service subsequent to our ordering was accomplished by the waiters assistant and the bus boys. No one asked, whether the food was to our liking or prepared as expected."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "Had the occassion to visit Caffe Abbracci with a group of 8, which included co-workers and our client. The appetizers were unique and delicious. We had the grilled calamari and tuna tartare. Calamari was tender and tasty and tartare was one of the best I've tasted. The group had a selection of veal, pasta and other and all said the food was delicious."

  • "love this restaurant. will go back again at my earliest opportunity. only complaint is entree portions tend to be small."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "The quality of the food was less than acceptable. A simple pasta side dish had to be sent back; the presentation of the entree was equivalent to that of a diner and the sauces on all the entrees were tasteless and artificially colored. Nothing seemed fresh, except for the bread and butter. Definitely needs improvement on all counts!"

  • "This restaurant is extremely consistent with its food. I have been dinning for years and the food is a perfect replica from the first experience. Always delicious!"

  • "Local Gem in a neighborhood full of National Chains. Oodles of character. Having not been there before I made a reservation on-line with Open Table. I requested a corner table away from the door and the Kitchen so that I could talk comfortably with the friend that I was meeting for dinner. We were late getting started and so met in the bar area for a drink before dinner. This area is full of character - check out the stained glass ceiling. The Bar bill was seamlessly transferred to the dining room tab when we were ready. I was pleasantly surprised to be greeted by name when the table was ready - a quiet table in the corner. Thick cotton table cloths. Food was good. Staff attentive though not obtrusive."

  • "This was my first visit to this restaurant and I was very impressed. The Main Dining Room is very tastefully decorated with glass creations by Dale Chihuly. The Service isTOP notch and the food was prepared to perfection. I would highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "My daughter attends the University of Miami and anytime I am in the area for a visit I make sure to have at least one dinner at Cafe Abbracci. This last visit I took my daughter and 2 friends and as usual the food was great and we had a wonderful evening. I had the sea bass which was delicious. Nino and his staff could not be more gracious. Put Cafe Abbracci on your list of restaurants to visit in Coral Gables."
