Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Possibly one of the best desserts ever is The Funk a blondie tiramisu with a crunchy texture on a vibrant pool of blueberry sauce ripeness. Perfect after any meal and well complimented with a cappuccino."

  • "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."

  • "our son is a freshman at the univ of miami. we first went to this restaurant after seeing rave reviews on yelp and other sites. the reviews are true and then some. ernie, the owner, is absolutely darling. he is gracious, friendly and makes you feel like family. we were treated that way the first time which is unusual in most places. he recommended a great wine, took care of our order, etc. the food was outstanding! when my son's girlfriend came to visit, this was the place he wanted to take care. ernie treated him with the same care as he did us. truly just a wonderful place. can't recommend it highly enough."

  • "We have been to Cafe Vialetto 4 times now and absolutely love it. Everything on the menu is delicious nothing ever disappoints. The staff is friendly and warm and the owners make it a point to pass by your table to make you feel at home. Food items are all fresh and mostly made from scratch. Our favs are the short rib croquetes, Mac & cheese (the best you'll ever have), short rib parpadalle, and for desert the funk. But anything you order will prove to be delicious. This is a must try place."

  • "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."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

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."

  • "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!"
