Excellent food, amazing dessert!
Third visit to Cafe Vialetto. Everything was great. The service was fast and helpful with menu suggestions. The cod fish is a must have dish, as is their ravioli. Be sure to save space for dessert, our waiter recommended the chocolate cake served over blueberry sauce and it was fantastic. The owner is very amicable and genuinely interested in making sure your visit is perfect.

My wife and I have been dining here for 11 years and it is arguably our favorite restaurant in Miami. This place boasts more than 6 seafood specials on any given night and I have tried most of them from the cod with squid ink risotto to the yellow tail snapper with mango chimichurri. I think their wine list and the servers knowledge of the tasting notes needs improvement, but overall Vialetto is a home run.

Always on the Money
This restaurant and its owners -- one of whom is always present -- never disappoint. Their fish dishes are outstanding and their sauces delicious. And, if you don't like what they have they'll even try to do something special for you. They're even open for lunch which is a great value. It's a great place to take someone special.

A gem in rough!
We reserved for Mother's Day. Enjoyed the food, everyone had something up their alley. Service was good. My only reservation is that I would like to be able to leave and walk around to help the food digest. While it is close to Merrick Park, you still need to get in car to get there. Otherwise a true gem!!!

The place was small and empty when we arrived. They only serve Beer and wine and that was disappointing. Though it was empty I felt we had to wave the waiter down.

Caffe Vialetto:Don't Wait to Try It
We tried going to Cafe Vialetto once before but they were closed. After dining there this past Sat. night, we could see it was worth coming back.
We had a great time. One of the owners, Ernie was present & very welcoming. Diners can see immediately that he is passionate about food, cooking and his restaurant. He wants his diners to have a positive dining experience.
The food is delicious...the pear and cheese ravioli is divine (my mouth waters thinking about it!).
My husband & I will definitely be coming back...and the best part...it's right in our neighborhood!

Red Snapper dish was more
Red Snapper dish was more than excellent. Good service. Very cordial owner dropped by our table. Ambience is a bit romantic.
GPS couldn't find address - will work if you tell it to go to Coral Gables HS (restaurant is across the street).

Good Wine selection as well.

Caffe Vialetto was introduced
Caffe Vialetto was introduced to me by a friend/colleague and I have had lunch there several times and it has always been wonderful. This was my first opportunity for dinner and it could not have been better! Our service was wonderful, and he accommodated us in all kinds of requests, and recommended a great wine. The manager makes everyone feel like the only person in the restaurant and treated us all to an after dinner drink which was very appreciated! I would recommend this restaurant (and I have already) again and again.

I was at this restaurant several years ago with friends who frequented it. I remember then being very impressed by the food - a cut above. I brought my nephew there before he heads back to college and he loves good food. He was going to try the polenta - he hadn't had it before. I told him after that he would probably be disappointed thereafter by polenta because it was superb - the best I've had. The wine was great. Everything was super fresh - hot bread - fresh bruschetta. I had risotto with pork belly. Excellent again, although I was getting pretty full by this time. I'd had polenta with pork belly for my starter. The owners could not have been more welcoming, friendly, and interested in how our dining experience was.

Our go to place
We have been going there for years. Amazing food and service. We always order from one of the many specials, so listen when they tell you the list. End the meal with either the "Funk" or the "Bomb" both are excellent!

Great Spot for Small Groups
One of my favorites in a city with great restaurants. Fresh fish, interesting side dishes, and specials that always captivate. No need for the menu - specials always amaze. Hogfish snapper melted in my mouth. I love the unique sauces and flavors - so simple isn't the norm. Calamari was fresh, not fried...not my favorite but the table devoured it. The mac n cheese with shrimp was flavorful and creamy.
Small, hole in the wall location - but ambience was fun and vibrant. Friendly owners and staff. Valet is in the back of the restaurant with attentive service.

WE had not been back for a year, no reason, just some vacation time, the kids gave us a certificate and we had tabled it. Both my wife and I, were very pleased with the friendly atmosphere specially from the servers, waiters, etc; even one of the owners came by and we were conversing and sipping an excellent merlot, then came the best part, I am not going to mention specifics, I am going to say that you could taste some of the wonderfull ingredients of every plate we ate. The proper mix, everything was well cooked, nothing was heavy or too spicy, even the salmon appetizer with the special sauce (you have to try it) was excellent, all-in-all a great experience. This time we will not take so much time coming back.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Every bite was delicious starting with their home made bread. Their risotto like no other. Their pear raviolis are amazing.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Imaginative and successful twists on favorite foods. Owner was very accommodating explaining ingredients usevd
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is a high five!
The aesthetics and decor were poor, but the food was incredibly amazing-everything from the bread to the dessert. I am definitely going back to eat their amazing food. I tried yet seafood (calamar tempura with sweet chilii & fresh water sea bass with risotto) as well as their pasta (pear ravioli). Dulce de leche flan dessert was fantastic. I can't wait to try more of their dishes.

Amazing as always!!
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!!

Nicest host ever! Spectacular food!
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.

A Wonderful Neighborhood Caffe
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.
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
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.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
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.

We recently discovered Caffe
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.

Caffe Vialetto is a local
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

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

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.

This restaurant is always good , food , service , but I think it was better before.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
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.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very good food
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.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Eat here! Do it, it's fantastic
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!
