Lovely atmosphere and the service was very good, from walking in, to checking out. 5 stars for both.

But the food just wasn't good (and thats KINDA important) - I don't know if I ordered poorly, or just got a couple bad dishes (I used to love the food there many years ago). But I did not enjoy "Burrata & Prosciutto" appetizer (cheese was NOT Burrata unless VERY old and hardened - and the "Proscuitto" was more like dry, fried bacon). Did not like the Bolognese Lasagna either, at all.

Even so, I know what tips are for (and not for) and I tipped the server VERY well, as the service (and ambiance) was indeed lovely. If I come back, I'll definately order something else.

Our friends in Ft. Lauderdale recommended we go there and we were blown away. All of the dishes were excellent. My veal francese was amazing - some of the best I've ever had - absolutely perfect!

Our friend ordered the Lasagna Bolognese and I stole a taste. I will never be the same again after tasting your béchamel sauce! Incredible.

Unfortunately, we came to the restaurant on the last night of our stay. Otherwise, I would have been back for lunch and dinner the next day.

Thank you.

Great hidden gem in Fort Lauderdale. Don't miss the bread! it's amazing! I enjoyed the veal saltimbocca and my husband had the lasagna. We also had the clams casino which were outstanding!! Thanks for a great evening! Prices are reasonable for the area, the ambiance is truly Italian!!

Pleasantly surprised when we got to the restaurant. Parking was easy and our table was waiting for us. We had a reservation for 6. Two of us had specials of the day and the other 4 ordered from the menu. Everything was delicious. We were there close to 3 hours and never were rushed to leave. Looking forward to going back for another fine meal.

We made our reservation two weeks in advance. Granted it was Valentine's Day but it took us a very long time to park, then the line at the desk was very long and no one was attending. It was quite noisy. We waited 15 minutes without the line getting any attention and then left. Yes, they were busy but no attention was being paid or any attempt to accommodate people with reservations.

We "stumbled" upon Cafe Vico three years ago, as residents for years, we didn't even know they were tucked away in a shopping center. We have been going back ever since. The food is outstanding, as is the service. It was extremely busy on Valentine's night, not an empty table, however the orders were all done to perfection and service exemplary.

Food was good service was good the only weird part
Was there were sweet potatoes on our plates of food
Which had nothing to do with veal cutlet parm dinner.
Having said that they should get rid of that. The wine was very good I would go back

What's to say except fantastic food, a great wine list and a wait staff the offers attentive service. We've never had a bad meal at Cafe Vico. Always an excellent choice for dinner after a long day at work, a place to take out of town guests or host a special event in their private dining room. A+ in my book! Bravo to owner Marco who is always on hand to greet you and watch over his staff.

I was going to have the veal chop but the market price was $54. Yikes!!!

I had the pasta Bolognese instead. Mediocre at best. Tasted like the chef didn’t let the wine cook off.
