Really very disappointing. Was hoping for high quality authentic Italian in a sophisticated setting. Nothing like that here. Poor service. Mediocre fare. And with pasta dishes in the low to mid $20 range - one over $30 - I expected better.

We love Cafe Vico! Have been coming here for 20 years. Consistently holding its high standards. The owner Marco is always there to greet me and see if everything is good. A true gem in Fort Lauderdale!

Excellent food and atmosphere. I really like the fact that the restaurant has as several rooms instead of just one large dining room. It’s more intimate and quieter so conversation is much easier. I liked meeting in the piano bar first and listening to the live music. The only negative of the bar is the awkward layout and noise level. But overall a very good experience.

Read the reviews which were mostly positive.
Hadn't been to Cafe Vico before, and have to say we found it to be an excellent choice for Italian. We were greeted by the owner, promptly seated and served. Food (lasagna and seafood ravioli) were outstanding.
Will definitely be returning.

First time here. I really liked the decor and atmosphere. Staff was very friendly and it was much appreciated that they sent out a complimentary birthday dessert. The food was decent, not amazing. The lasagna was stated to have been the best around town but I didnt care for it. The bechamel sauce on it was an interesting combination and I did love the sauce but there was way to much mushy meat in the lasagna and not enough ricotta cheese. My boyfriend had the seafood pasta and that was pretty good. I liked the bar scene.

We love Cafe Vico the food is always excellent and great atmosphere, But this time the service wasn't!! Our waiter was very direct and short like someone working at a fast food restaurant. He was not very welcoming and didn't show any type interest in our dining experience. At the end of the meal when we got the bill and he brings over a digital payment machine to take my credit card at the table. He stands over me watching what kind of tip I was leaving as I pressed "No Tip" because I was leaving a cash tip. He freaked out and told me No No sir you did it wrong and began to run it again. I told him I did it the right way and why are you questioning me about my tip? What kind of waiter stands over someone waiting to see what kinda type they are leaving?? This new payment method isnt something I like it makes you feel rushed. You need to train your new waiters better. I expect better service from such a fantastic restaurant.

C Vico is one of our favorites. We go there often. When I made the reservation, I asked for a "quiet" table. We didn't get one. If the "regular" guy seated us, we would have had one. Oh, well....We will return...

Cafe Vico has been our favorite restaurant for the past couple of years and whenever we have guests visiting from out-of-town we surely will be dining at Cafe Vico. The food, service, ambiance, and pricing are extraordinary and worth the hour drive from North Miami. We love EVERYTHING about it!!!!

Very disappointing. The restaurant was quite crowded for a Thursday night so we were happy to see that. Service was very slow and not welcoming. The table next to us was offered appetizers we weren’t and the artichoke we had was cold on the inside and the waiter couldn’t care less. Linguine and clams was full of bottled lemon and the eggplant rolatini was a pile of mush.

One of our favorite places for dinner. I was disappointed with the rib eye. Cooked perfectly but was not as good as usual. The steak was just very tough. Other then that it’s a wonderful restaurant and we will be back.

As always, we arrived and were greeted with graciousness all around and given a lovely table that looked like it was in a cozy wine cellar. The food was amazing as well: Barzini n a bed of linguine, chicken ravioli in an unusually good sauce, a pork chop that was tender and cooked perfectly and an eggplant rolatini which the chef graciously split into two plates to be shared as an appetizer. The servers were extremely pleasant and stylishly efficient. We are always made to feel that we are treasured guests even if we come only when we snowbird down to Florida.

All side dishes, pasta, vegetable, mashed potato, sweet potato were served cold. Roast chicken was fatty and limp. Needed to be finished so that it would develop a crust. Waiter never came around to ask how everything was. Ruffino Ducale Pinot Grigio was $15:00 a glass. This is well overpriced as a whole bottle of this wine can be purchased at approximately the same price.

Had an 8:00pm reservation for two. Didn't have to wait very long. Marcos asked if we would like to be seated outside on the patio. Worked out well as I have a hearing issue and it was very loud inside. Beautiful evening, happy to be outside and we were not pressured to hurry up and leave.

Service was excellent. The waiter was great, but his assistant was excellent and so attentive all meal. They understood gluten free and did it very well. Chef came to our table twice to check on us. The amuse bouche is nice, but gluten free could not partake. Please consider offering bread that is gluten free to go with the gluten free sauces in your dishes. It’s not terribly hard and would have completed the main dish well. From start to finish, a great experience for all! Thx.

Cafe Vico is a family favorite for over 20 years, from Christmas Eve’s, retirement parties, celebration of special birthdays and anniversaries, this is our “Must go to Place”!
This is the BEST Italian resturant in South Florida.
From the fantastic food menu, nightly specials, great wine list you are in for a delightful meal.
The service is awesome, even on a busy-busy night like Christmas Eve.
Do make your reservations early, as they are booked full nightly with good reason.
The Oestreicher’s recommend this restaurant to one and all, you will not be disappointed and for sure delighted!
