Amazing!! I have been going to
cafe Vialetto for years and it never disappoints. Usually when you go to a restaurant too often something goes wrong, but not here. This coral gables hot spot is a gem; fulfilled with foodies and wine lovers it is perfect for Friday and Saturday nights! The owner is always there; he is very friendly and wants to make sure everyone has a great meal! I hate to say it, but I am very picky, and violetto is always on point! A must try! PS: try their version tiramisu (the funk) for dessert, you will not regret it!"

The food was OUTSTANDING. I MEAN I
DIED AND WENT TO FOOD HEAVEN. My shredded short rib with polenta appetizer is surely the best thing I have ever tasted. Besides Italian food, there is a Caribbean/Latin vibe with many other menu items, artfully created and beautifully presented. In a nutshell, there's something for everyone here. It's a REAL GEM with hip atmosphere and exceptional wait staff. Ernie Fernandez greeted us, asked if we'd eaten there before, and chatted with us for a good while. Mr. Fernandez goes out of his way to make his customers feel important and get customer feedback. The complimentary ice wine at the end of the meal was a nice touch. We'll be going back every chance we get. MOLTO BENE!!! Dulce and Marco Vitiello"

Cafe Vialetto is our favorite
restaurant. You feel you are dining in your own dining room or at your friend place, that is how welcome Marcelo and Ernie the owners make you feel when you get there. Love that it is not a chain restaurant......and the food is amazingly divine....the mixture of Flavors....the risotto is to die for...recommend this restaurant highly!"

A nice hidden gem! Note enter
through the back! We flew in for a night on our way to Montego Bay, did not want to eat at the airport restaurants, so, I found this gem on Open Table, read the reviews, typed address into maps (15 minutes from airport) and made the reservation. We were not disappointed! We were seated promptly, ordered wine which was brought immediately. The Croquettes were really yummy, as was the braised rib dinner I had. The salad had nice large peels of Parmesan Reggiano which tasted so good! My husband had the special, filet with gorgonzola and they substituted Spaghetti carbonara happily for the risotto. I had the risotto with my entree and it was really good. The wait staff couldn't be better and more helpful."

Go for the food, it was
outstanding! But if you're looking to be waited on, this is not the place. The 18% is included and it appears the wait staff is counting on it. We were ignored for almost 20 min when we were sat, and another while when we finished. We would have ordered more wine, but weren't given a chance to ask for more. Again, the food was so good that I'll certainly go back. That's how good it is."

I dine out several times a week
and can tell you that this is my favorite restaurant in south Florida. At least on of the owners (Ernie and Marcelo) are always there to make sure that everything is just perfect. You have to try one of the risotto plates (Frutti di Mare in Lobster Bisque sauce) is my favorite as well as their stuffed ravioli (I always include the one with pear). Whether you want to impress a client for lunch or surprise the wife with a delicious romantic dinner Cafe Vialetto is definitely the place to go."

Lunch was delicious. Our salads
were fresh and delicious. The sea scallop risotto was perfect. Next time we will have wine and dessert. Warm and welcoming staff. Will definitely be back soon."

It is an absolute delight to dine
here. Owner friendly, wait staff professional and very knowledgable about menu and specials. No rush. This time we took frie ds vusiti g from out of country. Vialetto is a destination as well as anytime spot you can always count on to satisfy completely. Do not understand why Open Table listing says No Parking. Tvere is plenty of valet-aided parking in rear, a cessible from Laguna Drive off Bird Road."

Great little spot across from CG
High, ambiance was just what I was expecting for a romantic dinner. Went on a Thursday night with reservations but the restaurant was not crowded. The server was good not overly friendly not rude. The food was fantastic. Calamari and Stephens scallops were very tasty (only wished there would have been more scallops!) Risotto Carbonara was phenomenal and Papardalle with short ribs was great. Definitely will return to try some other dishes, overall a very good experience. Would certainly recommend!"
Dined on 1/16/2014
I could go on about the great food
we had (the meat candy and each of the raviolis), but the best part about our visit was Ernie. He made us feel welcome the minute we walked in the door and stopped by our table several times to see how we were doing. We live nearby and had never come here before, and I am so glad we did. We will definitely be back."
Dined on 1/11/2014
Everything we ordered was
delicious. Make sure to try the pear ravioli as well as the oriental bass served over risotto. For desert the chocolate fudge cake with blueberry sauce is divine!"
Dined on 1/2/2014
Food is consistently good and the
ambience is festive and familiar. Few restaurants have lasted as long as this one and maintain such a loyal following. Owners constantly checking to see if customers happy."
Dined on 12/28/2013
This restaurant is great for all
ages (not little kids though). We particularly liked the warm Italian bread with chopped tomatoes which came to the table when we sat down. The beef and scallop entrees were to die for. Staff couldn't be more helpful. All in all an A+ even though it was hard to find on a rainy night."
Dined on 12/27/2013
This restaurant never fails to
delight! It is not inexpensive, but the food is exceptional, creative and they will even customize a dish for you. The owner is onsite and makes sure you and your guests are happy and well fed. Very special place!"

It doesn't look like much on the
outside, but inside is a different world! Intimate, lovely Italian feel, great service and spectacular food! I arrived early once and the bartender made me feel at home and shared the history of this special restaurant. I've been coming for special occasions ever since."
Dined on 10/11/2013
The food was very good eventhough
we have been there several times before and it was not excellent for everyone like it always is, some of the people in the group felt they had dine better there before. The service was very good and overall it was a wonderful experience."
Dined on 12/14/2013
The food was delicious and of high
quality. The waitstaff was very attentive and the owner stopped by personally to inquire about how things were. Will definitely go here again!"

Doesn't look like much from the

Took my sister in law here, it was
amazing. The service was excellent! Took us right in, gave us a great table, fussed all over us. That is exactly how I like to dine. The food was delicious, we had the braised rib pasta we split it and it was still huge! It came on seperate plates the place was soo acomadateing. Very yummy. We were full but wanted a sweet so they let us order half size deserts (still huge) but a much better size. This is fancy italian the dishes are decadent it's not your average pasta. I can't wait to go back and try the duck! I highly recommend it!"
Dined on 12/1/2013
We loved the food, the Champagne
risotto is outstanding!!!!! The only thing I did not like was the waiter pushing us to finish the wine bottle before bringing the food . He wanted us to order a second bottle.That was uncomfortable, but besides that everything was excellent."
Dined on 11/22/2013
Whenever I am down in the Gables
and have the chance to eat here I jump on it. I have yet to find a restaurant that can compare with their Risotto. It's truly outstanding and their desserts are amazing. The staff is always friendly and there is never a rush to get you out the door."

This restaurant is always good ,
food , service , but I think it was better before."
Dined on 11/15/2013
Food is good, waiters attentive
but service is VERY slow almost 20 minutes between salad and entree and we were only one of three tables at the lunch hour. Too bad because the food is pretty tasty and it is difficult justifying that length of wait during a lunch time; we were all very frustrated."
Dined on 11/13/2013
After driving past this resturant
many times and always seeing that it was busy, we decided to check it out. We were plesently surprised. We were seated right away. Bread (delicious) and fresh Brochetta arrived shortly after. We ordered wine by the glass. (a good selection) Next we ordered the Mac and Manchego cheese with shrimp. It was so creamy and flavorful. I ordered the pasta and short ribs. Very good and plenty and took home the rest. My date had one of the many specials, Hog snapper with mango sauce over risotto. That was great also. Our server was professional and friendly. We have no complaints. And will return."

I always mean to try other dishes
but their pasta is always so delicious I always go back for more."

Caffe Vialetto is a local romantic
gem. Small and quaint with excellent service. a little pricey but worth the $100. Will definitely go back for more"

We recently discovered Caffe
Vialetto and have dined there several times both for lunch and dinner. We love the restaurant and recommend it to everyone. The northern Italian style blended with South Fla flavors make for a unique and excellent combination."

I never expected to find such a
great dining spot in the far southern reaches of Coral Gables.This restaurant features "home-style" Italian dishes which remind me of Italy itself.They must make their own pasta,because it tastes so freshly-made.I also found the sauces to be very delicious,definitely utilizing the freshest ingredients.Our server,Phil (who was doubling as bartender),was genuinely friendly,and very attentive.He was also very entertaining,with his "dry" sense of humor and wit.He even told us a few jokes during our dine. If you go to Caffe Vialetto,you will be very happy that you did.One tip - the parking and entrance to the restaurnt are around the back.The 3 doors that face Le Jeune Road are not entrances,and cannot be opened."

The owner of the restaurant
greeted us with open arms as soon as we walked in. Recommended the best things on the menu which were a revelation. Speaking as a chef it honesty is very hard to find great quality food like we did at this restaurant. The short rib risotto the pear ravioli were out of this world. I am definitely coming back."
Dined on 10/13/2013
Italian croquetas? Interesting
ingredient combinations, but uninspiring. Overall the meal was filling and flavorful, with acceptable deserts. They needed to keep their flavors simpler. For example, the penne pasta with veal sausage and peppers had a robust flavor and spicy brown sauce that stood on it's own, but the capers were unnecessary. The creamy risotto on a different entree, would better compliment the veal sausage than compete with the tangy meat sauce with which it was paired. The strength of each tasty morsel was countered by (not a counterpoint to), a flavor that didn't seem to fit. Indeed an experiment in the fusion of tastes."

Always a great meal at Caffe
Vialetto. Food is always great and the service is just as good. Very decadent food, so if you are prepared its a great experience."

Specials are excellent, albeit
pricey. Menu items are good. Spice menu portions are smaller than regular items, thus expensive"
Dined on 9/27/2013
Excellent service. Very nice
environment. Low musical sound which was one of the greatest details. Personalized attention given by owner (Ernie) who is a fantastic host. Food was more than excellent and service by waiters was impeccable. Light and accommodation were perfect! Delicious plates. This is a place to visit again and take friends and family for a special attention and great food."

Took my mom and friends to Caffe
Vialetto for her birthday. She had never been there and had always wanted to go. From the moment we walked in we were treated like royalty by one of the owners and staff. They were a little backed up so the owner apologized for the delay and had glasses of wine delivered to us! The food was amazing! The waiter offered suggestions to my guests and was knowledgeable and very sweet. I always recommend their champagne risotto with just about anything on the menu. Caffe Vialetto never disappoints and continues to be my favorite Italian restaurant! Can't wait to go back!!"
