Diner Reviews
  • "Restaurant offered complimentary wine while we waited for our table. The two people, i believe they were the owners, provided us with excellent service and where beyond attentive. I will definitely be returning."

  • "We made an 8:30 resevation, but were not seated before 9:15. Ordered apps and food. Apps took 45 mins. We complained. The owner or manager was very apologetic and gave us some free apps. The claimed to be overwhlemed b/c of Miami Spice. Restaurant is very loud. That said, the food itself is excellent. The comp-ed pear ravioli was awesome. I enjoyed my pork risotto a lot. Overall, great food, but needs a refresher course on restaurant management."

  • "Caffe Vialetto is a charming, albeit small, dining destination. They cram a lot of people into this small place. If you don't mind getting your chair bumped every now and then, then Vialetto is certainly a place I recommend. The food and the service are amazing. After going over the menu, make sure you give the waiter time to tell you the specials. That's the secret. Amazing specials all the time. The risotto and the polenta are out of this world. Doesn't happen all the time, but the home made bread they served with the freshly made bruschetta was not good. The crust was super hard, teeth cracking hard, and a bit to dense. Desserts are crazy good. They have valet parking, $5, or you can park on the street, meter."

  • "The service was horrible I waited for more than 20 minutes to get my desert, I had the Sea Bass with risotto and the Sea Bass was salty and if it wasn't for my wife giving me some of her risotto I would have gone out of the place hungry, It was not a good experienced at all. On top of that they are adding an 18% tip for a table with only 2 people, no restaurant in the Gables is doing that."

  • "The snapper fritters were outstanding and the Calamari done with Feta was excellent. We had the the Risotto for dinner, the pork was OK, the fish was very good. The Risotto itself was very good. The deserts were average. They had one of our favourite wines on the list, priced reasonably. We would come back here."

  • "You can pass by many many times and never see it, in fact for us was hard to find. We parked on the rear ($5) and we were hosted by the owner, a very nice and kind guy. We skipped the Miami Spice and requested the house special"s as appetizer we have ravioli and shrimps, for entree seared tuna and pasta. Every dish was perfectly well cooked and served. We will come back. Don't expect a fancy place but expect to have a great meal."

  • "Went for anniversary dinner. Highly recommended so expectations were high. Service was ok but not spectacular. Food ok but not exquisite. Could hear all conversations from surrounding tables. Restaurant on busy street and diners face that view. Parking lot all torn up. Some dining chairs had torn upholstery yet we're offered for sitting. I got one of those. Bathroom clean but had no paper towels or way to dry hands."

  • "Just a great place, I have been here 4-5 times over the past two years or so and every time I go the food is great and the service is good. Fantastic Italian food especially their ravioli! Had the Miami Spice menu for the first time there and it was a great selection and there was no need to ask the waiter for it as they gave it to us wtih the menu. Have never had a meal there that I have not thought was excellent. Always recommend Caffe Vialetto. My only complaint is that it took a while to get the check but at the same time they let you take your time and dine, no rush whatsoever even on a Friday night."

  • "What a terrific neighborhood restaurant! Superb Italian themed pastas, fish, meats and veggies and probably the very best risottos in all of Miami! Several types of fresh fish available every day with the chef's own take of style. But you can also get it simply grilled or sautéed but don't ever pass up the champagne risotto that comes with it! Excellent service, attentive and knowledgeable. Easy parking and great ambience."

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "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 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. "
