  • "Good food with interesting variations on the Italian theme. But, a choice of healthier sauces would be a nice alternative to the rich cream sauces."

  • "Cafe Vialetto is a gem - delicious food, lovely ambiance and a treat for all the senses. Had the restaurant week special - grilled calamari then sea bass over a bed of champagne risotto. Too fabulous for words."

  • "The other night, dinner at Caffe Vialetto was even more outstanding than it usually is. The Calamari Fra Diablo appetizer was awesome. The Calamari was tender and flavorful and the Fra Diablo sauce had just the right amount of spice. For our main course, my companion had Filet Mignon and I had Hog Snapper. The Filet was "melt in your mouth" tender and beautifully presented. I had never tried Hog Snapper before and it was wonderful. A flaky white fish that was very flavorful and combined perfectly with the shrimp risotto. Magnifique! Four dessert we had a Heath Bar Tiramasu that was super delicious."

  • "I have been to Vialetto countless times and can honestly say I have never had a bad experience and much less a bad meal there. Vialetto is a treat to the senses. The ambiance is great, the service is attentive, but not hovering and the food is consistently creative, excellently prepared and presented and if there were a sixth star, that would be my rating. I find it rather absurd in Miami now-a-days that people would seriously complain about the automatic 18% service fee being added to their check......Get over it and if you have an issue, modify it. I would not hesitate to recommend Caffe Vialetto to anyone looking for a unique and delicious dining experience without the pretentiousness all too common in South Florida. Enjoy!!!"

  • "This restaurant was very accommodating to my guest and I, we were able to split two dishes and they brought the plates to us split. The dishes we had were delicious, both the polenta and pasta very rich in flavor and creamy in texture, the pasta was tender and all in all I'll definitely return again. "

  • "We don't eat here often enough! It is not close to our home, so unfortunately we only head there on our way to a nearby theater. And, each time we eat there, we are reminded how terrific this restaurant is and how we should just make this our destination. Don't hesitate for a moment....the food is delicious and well prepared....and the staff is cordial and professional. GO and Enjoy!"

  • "We loved the food, and the service was prompt and friendly. I did NOT like the fact that an 18% service charge is ALREADY INCLUDED. First of all, if the service is good, I usually tip more, and would have, but didn't because they already INCLUDED a "service charge" in the bill. Secondly, I'm not even sure this is legal, as it was not announced at the BEGINNING of the meal. Whether it's legal or not, it certainly isn't ethical. I probably would go back as the food is truly fantastic, but this left a bad taste in my mouth. "

  • "I LOVE this place! It satisfies my soul! I had the short ribs and risotto and it was soo delicious! Our waiter was wonderful. I had a wonderful time."

  • " Food and atmosphere make for a very fun enening out. On this particular trip the service was rather poor. This is not always the case, so we will continue to frequent Vialetto (but if the service is this poor again, it will be off my list)."

  • "I work for one of the top catering companies in Miami, Florida and by far Cafe Vialleto is one of my favorite places to dine. The food, service and ambiance are amazing. The servers are very knowledgeable about the menu. You must try there croquetas, champagne risotto, short ribs and gnocchi's. Make sure you leave room for dessert. It is a bit pricey, but so worth every single dollar. "

  • "When I got the bill they had calculated an 18% tip. I don't like when restaurants impose the tip. This should always be at the discretion of the client. I paid it, but they won't see me again. Also when I made the reservation for 8:30 PM I wrote on the comments that I was going to be there around 9:00 PM and when I arrived at 9:10 PM the reservation was cancelled."

  • "From Food to the Service, this is without a doubt one of best places for Italian food in Miami. It is so hard to find a restaurant that is consistently on point with their food. Everything I have ordered plus my dates food was amazing. Do yourself a favor and give this restaurant a try."

  • "I was in Miami for business and looking for a nice place to take my customers so I went to Open Table. This place had great reviews and my customers had never been, so I booked a reservation. The service was outstanding, we were given a nice table by the window, the owner came by to welcome us and the food was amazing. We all orderred a different special and were all pleased with our choices. The risotto was unlike any we had ever had and by our standards the best. Excellent choices for a variety of tastes. My customers stated this would be a place they will visit again now that they know about it."

  • "The food here is delicious, specially the pasta which is their specialty. We were surprised however at the super hard stale bread, but the rest was amazing. Our waiter was so so. Not horrible, just felt like we were asking a favor. But we would go back because the manager seemed to be on top of things so hopefully we get a different waiter next time around."

  • "I discovered Caffe Vialetto through an online search for Italian restaurants in the area. While they admittedly are more of a fusion of different cuisines, the food is still very excellent. One of the owners was present that evening, and was very accommodating, friendly, and informative. As a first time diner at Caffe Vialetto, it made the experience for my significant other and I, very memorable. I certainly recommend Caffe Vialetto to anyone trying to avoid the usual chain-restaurants, and looking for something new. I myself will be returning soon!"

  • "The food was amazing as always. I love this place. The server was a little slow due to the fact the restaurant was completely booked, but the food makes up go it as well as the owner's friendliness and constant smile also makes up for it. The seafood risotto with the lobster bisque sauce is exquisite. The pear ravioli is so yummy! Everything on menu is great!"

  • "Got recommendations from several people who know Gables restaurants, so I think I may have ordered the wrong dish for my tastes. Everyone in our group loved their meal, but I was confused about what was going on in my plate?? Unfortunately I took a few bites and left the rest, thought the menu description didn't come close to what was served. The wait staff was charming and very attentive. I look forward to returning and paying more attention to what I order."
