The food is exceptional. Either
The food is exceptional. Either try some of the favorites mentioned in other reviews or pick something you like. You will not be disappointed. I could rate the service either really high or really low, depending on which group you fit in. If you are a regular diner, the waiter not only talks with you he entertains you; and, the general manager comes to your table and fawns over you. If you are not a regular diner, the staff will tolerate you and barely wish you a pleasant journey when you leave. There should not be such a disparity at what otherwise is a 5-star restaurant.

My husband and I were joined
My husband and I were joined by two friends to celebrate our birthdays. The service was wonderful and professional. I had the black ink, lobster ravioli as an appetizer! Excellent! I had the fresh snapper, it was also excellent! Everyone was very pleased with their selections and the dessert and wine were wonderful.
Need to do this more often!

Always great Italian food
Menu is great but they will also make you,any Italian dish. Everything is good
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
I have been going to Caffe Abbracci for many years and can truthfully say that I have never been disappointed. I have become friends with the owner and some of the wait staff and they couldn't be friendlier. And the food is superb. I highly recommend this restaurant. It is usually busy, hence a bit noisy, but on this occasion I went at 6 PM and it was quiet. If you are going with a large party and intend to bring a lot of wine from home, there is no break on corkage, it's $20 per bottle, $40 per magnum on so on.

Perfect for an enchanting night out
We love going to Caffe Abbracci for a relaxing and fun evening out. The welcome is always warm, the service efficient and helpful, the food delicious and the ambience enchanting with that certain flavor of Italy which is hard to beat.

Great Italian Restaurant
We wanted to find a good restaurant close to our hotel (Westin Collonade) and this restaurant was rated #1 out of over 200 restaurants in Coral Gables on Trip Advisor. I agree! Outstanding service and food!
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Old fashion style
Love this place, old fashion style in a quiet strret of Coral Gables. From the outside you can't imagine the space inside, the murano chandeliers and the Tiffany roof at the bar.
The waiters very professional and kind. As it was CG restaurant week we choose the full menu for usd35, it was delicious.
The ambiance was quiet most people seems to be all life customers, we in our 40ties were the youngest.
Excellent place if you want to enjoy excellent food in a old fashion style.
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love This Restaurant
The food is authentic Italian and delicious. Everything I ordered had a beautiful
presentation and was excellent. The Maitre D and waiters are helpful and friendly.
The food is delivered at the perfect pace. I went in to study for an upcoming test, despite the fact thet I am 51, and read without disturbance.
I found this restaurant on the website and was a little apprehensive about dining alone
and from an on-line recommendation. However, I could not have had a better experience.
I will be using the website again and am definitely returning to
my new favorite Italian Restauraunt. What a find!

Meal quality outstanding
It's rare when all in the party truly enjoyed the food, but this dinner accomplished that. The service, while attentive, lacked a little in basic manners. A couple of the personnel reaching in front of you to place the plate. Overall, we enjoyed it, and would recommend to a friend.
6/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
I tried the special of the day when I visited; the code. It was prepared deliciously but it had some pasta as a side dish that was too heavy on the cheese. I would have much preferred some steamed fresh vegetables instead. For desserts, my friends ordered a Napoleon (did care for it) and some fruits with a cream that was too heavy placed in a cup of hard caramel (too sweet).
As for wine, the whites do not agree with my stomach, so I tried a Malvec from Argentina which was very smooth.
6/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
I went for lunch with a friend for my birthday. I had the Bronzino and it was light and delicious, not over cooked as fish can sometimes be. The risotto that came with it was so good, I couldn't resist it even though I try to stay low carb.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another excellent dinner at
Another excellent dinner at Cafe Abbracci. We always go there for dinner during our stays in Miami. The place is always packed with Italian American families and everything is excellent. I recommend the Vino Nobile de Montalcino and a simple Caprese to start. I had a Black Risotto as a main this time. Delicious!

Good Italian and Friendly Staff
Authentic Italian food. Very good, though a bit pricey for decor and quality (though not too pricey for location).

Late lunch for six
Had an outstanding lunch with a party of six. The restaurant was quiet as we were after the lunch rush-hour, a relax and very friendly staff served us a fantastic meal. We will be back!
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Still delightful, and reliable, too
Caffe Abbracci is a long-time survivor in the ephemeral world of Coral Gables restaurants. You can count on excellent food, with a broad menu and a few nightly specials. The wine list is good, including many nice well-priced wines by the glass if, as in our party, most drank red wine but one (me!) wanted white. The full bar is a nice place to wait for others in the party to arrive.
The waiters are knowledgeable and professional.
It's not the quietest place in the world so if heavy conversation is the goal, stick to a weeknight (those can be busy, too). Reservations are always honored promptly.
We had a party of 6 and we all enjoyed the food and environment.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Tried and True
You can never go wrong with this spot when looking for a late night meal. Not the "place to be seen" as in the old days but surely an upscale crowd and better than average food. The bar scene reminded me of the mid-eighties...not a bad thing, just different. Overall a good experience.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
A REAL WINNER!!!!
I know now why this restaurant has been there for I believe about 25 years. I could not find one negative about Cafe Abbracci. It was recommended by a friend and so glad we took her advice. From the appetizers to dessert it was a true gastronomic experience.

Excellent food and service; always a real treat! Very good Miami Spice menu.

I had not been in years and a friend wanted to try so I made an open table reservation. All around a great experience. I had the filet mignon, yes at an Italian restaurant, which I have had in the past. You get a 10 oz filet for $38, cheaper than the steakhouses and better. You get a beautiful center cut steak that is as good if not better than the prime steakhouse chains in the neighborhood. My friend had the tortelloni with asiago cheese and pear, fantastic as well. Incredible service as well. Staff who did not even wait on me thanked me by name as I left. There is a reason many of the waiters and staff have been there over 10 years.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant is one of the best italian restaurants we have been to.
The service was wonderful, the food was excellent and the wine was great.
They also made the kids feel right at home.
I will go there anytime we are in Miami.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Caffe Abracci - - beautiful setting ( love the glassworks!), the service was impeccable, and the ambiance was very relaxing and comfortable.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great meal
From the friendly reception and attentive service all the way thru the desserts it was a very enjoyable experience.
Do not leave without ordering the Napoleon for dessert, probably the best I have had outside of Paris.

Lovely Birthday Dinner
We went to celebrate a birthday, it was the first time at the restaurant for my husband, and he loved it. The service was warm and attentive, the food was delicious, and they prepared a beautiful dessert dish for my husband, which was so nice. Everyone from the waiter to the manager were wonderful. Definitely recommend.
We hope the foie gras appetizer comes back on the menu. It is the best ever!
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Place to Dine
We go to Abracci's often...their lobster ravioli is the best and the specials for the evening never fail to please.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent, as usual
I have been patronizing this establishment for decades, and find it to be very well run, both from a standpoint of excellent, friendly service, and great food. They do not carry an extensive wine list, however. I usually bring a bottle from my cellar and pay $20 corkage. They have full bar service. It is also a place where celebrities and high powered executives are seen. I highly recommend this restaurant.
9/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
Had a great salad for lunch. My associate had the grilled snapper in parchment paper which was fantastic.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
WE LOVE THIS PLACE
Amazing Great Food, Ambience and Attentive Wait Staff.
Everything an Evening out Should be.
We will definitely keep coming back and continue
having dinner, lunches, and future party events.

Best Italian food in Miami
Just got back from Tuscany & this food measures up
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just GREAT !!!
What a great restaurant.......a real Italian place!!!
The food is always excellent, the service impeccable and every one makes you feel like you are home!
What I really like of Abbracci is the consistency in the food ( high quality ) and the innovation to add every season new recipes to the menu.
I would give ...six stars if I could.....
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
OUTSTANDING service and food
Excellent, I like very much Abbracci. I went to Abbracci several times and, each time si better than the last.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and service at the ultimate power lunch
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
I walked into Caffe Abbracci
I walked into Caffe Abbracci and was seated immediately into the main dining room. I just loved seeing all of the chihully artwork; it's so elegant.
I think Abbracci has the best caesar salad in Miami so I ordered that for my appetizer. For the main course I had another favorite, porcini risotto and it was fantastic. My date had the mushroom appetizer and the delicious veal chop. Everthing was fresh and presented beautifully.
The service was excellent and during the meal, Nino (the owner), graciously came over to my table and thanked me for dining in his restaurant and made sure all of my needs were met.
I can't wait to dine at Caffe Abbracci again.
It's my favorite spot in Miami!
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been to this restaurant 3 times and each time has been fantastic. I wish it were closer to my home!! They do a good job all around from food to service to price. Love it!!
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Classic Italian gem
This restaurant was really great. The pastas were all outstanding...a must to try is the rabbit ragu and the stuff pasta in a vodka sauce...I can't remember the exact name of the dish but it has bits if pear (!!!) inside it...really tasty. The pasta portions are quite large which may hinder your ability to eat an entree afterward so may be a good idea to share.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The atmosphere was quaint, enjoyed dining outside. I tried the Salmon, Swordfish and Langostino special, it was beyond awesome. Execellect service! The staff were very nice from the manager to the busboy. They made you feel welcomed and at home. Noticed lots of regular customers. Cant wait to go back.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Cafe Abbracci is a Coral Gables landmark. The food is always cooked to perfection with fresh ingredients. The service is always attentive and they are very accommodating. If you are on a special diet or have a particular request, they will do their best to meet your needs.
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
As usual, I had a great experience
As usual, I had a great experience and wonderful dinner at Caffe Abbracci. The wait staff goes out of its way to make you feel at home and makes an effort to see that you get what you want. I will be returning soon.

Wonderful find for italian
We stopped in late on a thursday night and found a vibrant and cheerful staff managing a very full and fun authentic Italian restaurant. Staff was wonderful. Food very good, wine list adequate and very fairly priced. An excellent value with great quality all around.
