Cafe Vico is a terrific restaurant! The service, the music, the food are stellar! The Eggplant Parmigiana is particularly wonderful. It is not heavily breaded but instead is light and savory. The Veal Francese is also quite good, as are the Clams Casino. We have never had a meal that was less than delicious at Cafe Vico, in fact! This time we also indulged in Cannolli. It was prepared perfectly - crispy shell and creamy filling that was just sweet enough!

Everything about this restaurant I Great!
Well ALMOST!

The HOSTESS station is a disappointment.

On almost every occasion I am left standing there alone.
Barely acknowledge when arriving and NEVER acknowledge when leaving.
It’s happened sooo often I’m just about ready not to go back.
The acknowledgment of being recognized as a patron wether your dining every day or every month is PART OF THE AMBIANCE!

It’s your FIRST IMPRESSION upon entering and your LAST IMPRESSION when leaving....

DISAPPOINTING.

One of the best Italian restaurants in the Fort Lauderdale area. The Lasagna is the BEST! A must have along with the home made garlic dipping sauce. Marcos, the owner takes the time to great everyone and makes you feel like a special guest.

went to celebrate a birthday. place was located in the corner of a plaza. when you walk in the place was decorated very nicely. the staff was very pleasant and nice. I went on a Tuesday and they had this guy named Wayne Gilbert playing piano. we chose to sit in the piano area. the guy plays very well and was a good add on for our dinner date. the food was excellent. we went for the lasagna because we heard it was the best and it sure was. the bread and garlic dip at the beginning was excellent and the calamari was great. the Shrimp Fra Diovolo was excellent. for desert had the chocolate brownie with ice cream and it was also good. no complaints with this place and will return.

Food was better in the past. Service was fair.
It took way to much effort on my part to keep the server on task. Maybe it was a bad night

Cafe Vico is my favorite Italian restaurant. Great food, sophisticated atmosphere, yet warm with perfect lighting and wood. Our cocktails were just as we liked it. I had the seafood ravioli and my wife had whole wheat pasta prima vera. Both delicious and the pasta cooked al dente as it should be. Lastly Marco, the owner, always greets us like we're an old friend. The prices were moderate and it's conveniently located on Federal Hwy.

THE FOOD IS ALWAYS SUPERB. JACKSON, OUR SERVER WAS EXCELLENT ALONG WITH THE REST OF THE STAFF. THE ITEMS ARE ON THE EXPENSIVE SIDE, BUT THE PORTION SIZES ARE FAIRLY LARGE. IT IS CONSISTENT AND ONE OF THE BEST AUTHENTIC ITALIAN RESTAURANTS IN FLORIDA AND THE ENTIRE US.

Excellent food and service. One of the best Italian restaurants in Broward County. Interesting dishes that were full of flavor. It isn't flashy inside but has better service than most.

We sat at the piano bar before dinner and enjoyed listening to the woman singing. Our dinner was delicious and fairly priced. We had the salmon carpaccio as an appetizer, my husband had the eggplant rollatini and I had the chicken special. It was also a rollatini with mozzarella and spinach. We had an early dinner that Saturday night so it was relatively quiet. All in all it was a very enjoyable evening.

We always visit Cafe Vico when we’re in town, because there isn’t an Italian restaurant that compares near where we live. I had fettuccine carbonara which was delicious. A friend had the gnocchi, which she thought was wonderfully light. Both of our spouses had the mammoth and deservedly well-known lasagna. If you get a bottle of red wine, have them decant it - the most amazing wine decanter we have ever seen. Ricotta cheesecake and a huge brownie completed the feast. Attentive yet not intrusive service. A great experience.

The food is horrible!! We could not believe that a restaurant could possibly mess up a simple pasta and marinara dish!!! Every food we ordered had loads of sugar in it! Pasta was store bought!! Meat very tough! Service mediocre at its best!! Service bad!! Prices very steep! Paid 260 dollars for 3 people with no appetisers or alcohol!
Will never ever recommend or go ourselves!! Very poor overall

My wife and I had a nice experience at this restaurant.
The food and service was very good. Interesting twist on the Lasagna... it's prepared with Bechamel sauce which it doesn't need.
