    Café Abbracci is one of the oldest (over 25 years) restaurants in Coral Gables and still one of the very best. Pastas are outstanding; only to be surpassed by the quality of service. We always enjoy our dining experience here.

    Have been coming here for years, always found the atmosphere lively and fun and the food delicious. But my husband and I both found our meals disappointing on this last visit. I had pasta with a puttanesca sauce, nothing special at all. My husband had swordfish--the piece looked extremely thin, unusual for swordfish presentation, and my husband said it was largely dark meat. This is unacceptable for a fine dining establishment. Hope this was just a momentary glitch in quality and preparation.

    We loved celebrating our 31st at this neighborhood gem! The service was very attentive and professional. The meal was superb--a wonderful selection of various seafood dishes--almost too hard to select. But, the lobster ravioli and sea bass were tasty and memorable. The profiteroles were a delicious end to our special meal. Can't wait to return!

    We had a reservation at 6:30 on the early side. I chose this restaurant for my husband's birthday. We were warmly greeted upon arrival and were treated so nicely for the entire time. The restaurant was quite empty when we arrived and completely full when we departed. Even when the restaurant was full it didn't seem hectic. The service is so professional and attentive. Each dish was prepared to perfection and served perfectly paced. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and will definitely return.

    Had the occassion to visit Caffe Abbracci with a group of 8, which included co-workers and our client. The appetizers were unique and delicious. We had the grilled calamari and tuna tartare. Calamari was tender and tasty and tartare was one of the best I've tasted. The group had a selection of veal, pasta and other and all said the food was delicious.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007

    The quality of the food was less than acceptable. A simple pasta side dish had to be sent back; the presentation of the entree was equivalent to that of a diner and the sauces on all the entrees were tasteless and artificially colored. Nothing seemed fresh, except for the bread and butter. Definitely needs improvement on all counts!

    Both appetizers & entrees were well prepared, tasty, and well presented. Service, however, fell short. This is a establishment that appears to have a strong repeat and upscale clientele. If you are not a regular (which we were not) then it appears (from our experience) that service seems to suffer. We saw our main waiter when ordering a bottle of wine and to order dinner. After that, he was non existent for the rest of the evening, even when it was time to request the check. All of the service subsequent to our ordering was accomplished by the waiters assistant and the bus boys. No one asked, whether the food was to our liking or prepared as expected.

    Local Gem in a neighborhood full of National Chains. Oodles of character. Having not been there before I made a reservation on-line with Open Table. I requested a corner table away from the door and the Kitchen so that I could talk comfortably with the friend that I was meeting for dinner. We were late getting started and so met in the bar area for a drink before dinner. This area is full of character - check out the stained glass ceiling. The Bar bill was seamlessly transferred to the dining room tab when we were ready. I was pleasantly surprised to be greeted by name when the table was ready - a quiet table in the corner. Thick cotton table cloths. Food was good. Staff attentive though not obtrusive.

    My daughter attends the University of Miami and anytime I am in the area for a visit I make sure to have at least one dinner at Cafe Abbracci. This last visit I took my daughter and 2 friends and as usual the food was great and we had a wonderful evening. I had the sea bass which was delicious. Nino and his staff could not be more gracious. Put Cafe Abbracci on your list of restaurants to visit in Coral Gables.

    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.

    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! Susan Schaffer
