    The meal was great. I recommend all the plates on the menus, plus those not on it. Some plates that classic Italian dishes are not on the menu, but if you ask they will prepare them for you. High recommended if you want authentic Italian meals.

    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.

    Food was very good. Linguini with butter and garlic was excellent. Waiters are always pushing to take orders, sometimes rude if you didn't understand their explanation on a specific dish. Ice cream order had a piece of plastic, they replaced it but no apologies.

    Cafe Abbracci has been around for 25 years and it shows its age. The decor is funky-trying to be elegant and the service is professional. The food is good, but not inventive or exciting. This is a place where you know what to expect and you get it.

    A delicious experience!! The restaurant is divided into a main dining room and a smaller room off to the right. We ate in the smaller room so it was quieter. The restaurant was very busy. My lamb chops and my friend's linguine putenesca were outstanding and we would dine here again.

    Took a group of five and thought the place looked nice. Loris was nice and that was where it ended. The waiter seemed disinterested and more into turning the table than providing service. Tried the goat cheese appetizer which was a disaster. My veal was so bad I had to ask for two lemons just to get some flavor. The food came out so quick, I thought I was at Olive Garden. My other diners seemed fine with the food, so maybe it was my expectations. Try this place if you must but I hope you have better luck.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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".

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.
