    We ate here for Thanksgiving and ordered the traditional turkey dinner. The pumpkin ravioli was delicious, the turkey and accompaniments were good, but the apple pie was awful. Even on a busy holiday evening the room was quiet enough to converse easily with friends.

    Caffe Abbracci was a wonderful choice to celebrate my husband's birthday! When we arrived, he was wished a "Happy Birthday," and the food was superb! The fish selections were deliciously fresh and presented in a very appetizing way. The birthday dessert "surprise" was a wonderful way to end our meal.

    A little bit of a slow start while we waited at the door to be seated but I think it was only because the place was so busy already. Obviously a very popular spot, even on a Sunday night. The food was wonderful, prompt service and very reasonable prices. Servings are massive so we could have shared a main plate but we took the extra home in a doggy bag! Very posh of us. Overall, a great dining experience that reminded us of being in Italy at some of our favorite places.

    This was our second year celebrating my husband's birthday at Cafe Abbracci. Once again we were not disappointed. The service was right on point-Not too fast and not too slow. The food was delicious and a great wine list. If you can survive in Miami for 25 years you must be doing something right. If you want great italian food- this is the place to go!!!

    The service is warm and friendly and the food is always very good. We were there on a Saturday night at 7:00pm and every table was full. Even though they were busy, we did not feel rushed. It was a very enjoyable evening and we will be back next time we are in Coral Gables.

    Caffe Abbracci, is as consistent as a sunrise in Florida. The food and service never disappoints and there is always a great crowd of local Miami power payers throughout the seating area. Normally, I opt for one of the daily specials, but recently I have been eating more steak at Abbracci and it has been excellent. You cant go wrong at this Gables stable.

    Food was tasty but clearly had been sitting in a food warmer too long or put in the microwave. We both ordered fish. The plate was steaming hot so much so when the waiter put it down, he said not to touch the plate. Becauce of the reheat process - the sauce on the fish hardened and the angle hair pasta with oil/garlic was actually crisp. It's too bad because the food itself was nicely seasoned but that reheat process changed the consistency of the food.

    Caffe Abbracci is a family favorite and one that stands the test of time. Even if it is not on the menu - ask - they will be as accommodating as they can be to cook what you wish (Italian of course!). Can get a little noisy as the evening gets later but an enjoyable dinner always.

    This is our favorite Italian spot!! The service is wonderful! The food is amazing! The atmosphere is romantic, sophisticated, and provides a perfect spot to share good conversation with an intimate feel. We have had dates here, as well as dinner with family and friends. It is the perfect spot for great Italian food, a great glass of wine, and to have a good conversation. If you're going for a scene, people watching this is not your place.

    Had dinner @ Café Abbracci this past Sat. and was given a table for 2 in the overflow room right next to a huge 20 party table, Service personal went about their jobs in a rote manner without any sense of enthuasium or excitement upon answering menu questions or reciting the daily specials. Everyone seemed to be waiting and preping for the upcoming big group, or possible celebrity? Food was just OK . pasta dishes served warm instead of piping hot. The Fruit del mar was only Fair, I have had much better. The desert kept the same pace. Moultin chocolate cake skimpy and served like a scoup of ice cream at your local diner. Overall what should have been a special night was not. Not horrible but not like I remember Abbracci years ago.

    We invited one of our best customers to a lunch to present him with an award. The decor, service and food were outstanding and the noise level was perfect (enough to know you were in a nice restaurant, but no roar and you still could have a great low voiced conversation). Just an excellent restaurant and while the food was excellent, the service was 5 Star quality.
