Grounded beef, cheeses béchamel sauce. Voted the best lasagna in Broward
Mixed vegetables, mozzarella and ricotta cheese tomato sauce
Penne or Spaghetti
This is a fantastic restaurant. The food and service is second to none.
Fabulous! Dinner was absolutely spectacular. We started out with the antipasto for two, a generous serving of meats, cheeses, olives, red peppers, greens, artichokes, mushrooms, tomatoes, cauliflower, served with olive oil and vinegar. DH ordered the melt in your mouth, fresh made pasta lasagna, with their velvety béchamel. To die for. I ordered the meatball appetizer with a huge dollop of the most delicious ricotta I’ve ever eaten. Dinner portions are more than adequate. All meals come with complimentary bread and dipping oil. We originally said no to dessert but decided on the profiteroles after all. Good choice!! Service was excellent and unobtrusive, just how I like it. The live music from their happening bar was delightful.
One of the best in Fort Lauderdale
Had a fabulous birthday dinner!! Staff and food were equally amazing!! The atmosphere was Devine…will come again!!!
Amazing as usual. Best Italian in Ft. Lauderdale!
Fantastic food and service
Great music as well at the bar area
Food was amazing & so were the drinks. Will be back for sure!!
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. It was our Anniversary and it was a perfect place to go.
The ambiance is special. Our waiter was polite and very efficient and service was terrific. Food was cooked perfectly! 🌷
We are regulars at Cafe Vico and have never been disappointed. The food and service are always outstanding, we will definitely be back.
A little pricey, but what isn't these days?! It is difficult to orchestrate "ambiance" on the sidewalk of a strip mall parking lot, but Cafe Vico provides a live plant buffer between the tables and cars and an awning above to protect from the occasional drizzle. In this time of COVID concerns, we are happy to have a good restaurant with outdoor seating. If you're willing to sit indoors, you have the bonus of live music. The food is always delicious, portions generous and the service attentive. From this most recent visit, I can highly recommend the Veal Marsala, Veal Osso Buco, Gnocchi in cream sauce and Clam appetizer, but can honestly say I've never been disappointed with any dish at Cafe Vico!
We were at the original location. Dinner was great. We started with clam casino which we had never tried. Why had we waited so long? SUPER delicious!! My daughter had the meat lasagna, it is her favorite. As she said it was worth every carb she consumed. I had the pappardelle with sausage and broccoli rabe. It is a garlic lovers delight. Please understand Cafe Vico loves garlic. Dinner is always a great. Reservations recommended. FYI there is a good happy hour daily from 4-6 and live entertainment. Plenty of parking in their lot.
Excellent Experience! The service and food were outstanding.
What a terrific experience. Jackson and Tom were on point with guest engagement and making sure we wanted for nothing . Food was amazing! We’ll be back
Delicious food and excellent service, from the manager to the waiter (Jackson) to other waitstaff. Ambience is elegant with walls covered in black & white portraits. Very special restaurant, especially suited for special occasions.
By far the best Italian restaurant I have ever eaten at. The quality of the food was amazing and not a single bad dish. I will be that person traveling on the airplane with leftovers.
Amazing flavor got try it out
Amazing traditional food, amazing traditional old fashioned service, just an overall great experience. Don't let the weird location in the corner of a strip mall scare you off this place is the real deal. Yum!
It was a great dining experience.
Lovely restaurant with great history. We always dine here during our Ft Lauderdale visits
Quiet, great food, great location, great service. Going back soon.
I had such a nice time here! I went for an anniversary with my boyfriend. We had the Sangiovese wine which was delicious, and got the clams casino and artichoke appetizers both delicious and full of flavor!! I ordered the beef and truffle risotto which I thought was really good, and he got the penne vodka. Coming from both of us, the sauce could’ve been more thick and flavorful, but it still tasted good. The waiter wasn’t at the table too often or too much, and if we needed anything there was always someone else to help us. The bread was DELICIOUS and one of the best rolls I ever had! At the end of our meal we got a free tiramisu that said “Happy Anniversary” on it. We appreciated it so much and it was a great way to end the meal. I didn’t expect much from this restaurant but I’m really happy this is the place we ended up choosing.
Always delicious , always consistent . Always come back when we visit FL.
Just wonderful! Great food and great for any occasion!
The service is excellent. Very attentive.
the ambiance however is loud. I asked for a table that was not in the bar. We were seated in the next room, next to the bar. Still loud. I wanted to be able to talk to my partner.
Ordered the Lasagna to split and the veal to split.
the food felt like it was under spiced. As if it did not have enough spices, (not spicy but flavor)
From all the reviews I have heard from this place it was kind of sub par.
It was just 'ok'
Again service was +++++
Excellent food as always
This place is fantastic! We love italian restaurants and have tried them all over Florida. This place is absolutely one of the very best.
Excellent staff. Food was delicious. Try the lasagna; tasty and different with creamy bachenal sauce. Desserts are also quite nice.
Wonderful as usual
Nice corner round table. Very efficient and pleasant waiter. Delicious meal.
Birthday party! Excellent service and food as always!
Great food and service every time we have eaten there
Early birthday celebration
A very pleasant surprise. Hadn’t been here for a year. Main courses were outstanding. Very high quality!worth the price
Great food, great service - accomodating - I could not decide between pastas, so they offered me a dish with half serving of each - lasagna and carbonara - heaven.
First time at Cafe Vico! Impressed with the service, food was delicious and definitely a cool atmosphere! Wish we were closer to the live music... but we didn't even know they had that! Next time we will ask! Can't wait to go back!
The food is delicious, the service is excellent, and the ambiance is welcoming.
The service is outstanding. The piano player plays great music. The food is tasty.
Cafe Vico is one of our absolute most favorite restaurants. We've been regular customers since they opened 24+ years ago. They were so kind last night to seat us at a quiet table on our own to celebrate our special occasion.
We look forward to many more visits.
Went for an anniversary. In the reservation instructions I asked for happy anniversary to be on the desert and it was never put on. My wife had risotto that was undercooked and hard. I had penne vodka and it was good.
We like the restaurant a lot. The ambience and the music. And of course the food which is vey good.
