Tonight we celebrated my parents 50th wedding anniversary and my mother asked to eat at her favorite restaurant Caffe Vialetto. It was my first visit and needless to say I WILL BE BACK. Food, service, and ambiance was superb. Thank you for helping to make tonight even more special
i tried the miami spice menu, including the meatball/polenta app, and the main course of shrimp risotto vialetto. i was so stuffed there was no room for dessert!
As always the food, service, and restaurant were all magnificent. Thank you for a wonderful time.
The food was delicious and the service was excellent.
I took my husband for his birthday dinner. The food was spectacular and the service was exceptional.
They have the best ravioli sand Risotto election in town. The truffle ravioli was amazing. The Calamari Fra Diablo was also outstanding and much lighter than the typically deep fried calamari.
I’ve been going to this place for a very long time! I’ve never had a bad meal! It is always spectacular!
Miami spice menu is very good ! Big size plates and good options !
Overall good dining experience. I have to comment on the fact that if a restaurant takes 6pm reservations its assumed by the customers that you will be open and ready to serve our party at 6p. We waited in the back parking lot after arriving at 545 thinking we could arrive early and have drinks at the bar. The Miami Spice menu was good. The service good. The value good and so was the ambience. Unfortunately when we left we also had another bad experience. When we arrived (545p) there was valet stand (closed) that stated $6 valet- never did we anticipate that after parking our own car in the lot and waiting 15 minutes to open that we would be charged for valet despite the fact that we parked our own car and walked to our car at the end of the meal. Ridiculous. Its not even about the $6 but the morale of it. Just change the sign to read “parking $6”! Not valet! Good meal but likely one and only.
Food tasted good but presentation was lacking. Very small portions. I had the ravioli dish on the Miami Spice Menu. It only had 4 very small pieces. Also, food was not hot. Very disappointed with the lunch.
The food was excellent and the service impeccable
We enjoy this restaurant and currently their food and service has improved
It is worth a try if you have not gone yet
We ordered off the Miami Spice menu, and the food was very good. The service was very good as well, especially the waiter that refilled out water glasses. Our glasses were never empty, and he always had a smile on his face. The valet was also very good. The one exception to good service was the hostess - she was on the phone, clearly on a personal call - and she ignored us for several minutes when we arrived at the restaurant. Aside from that, Cafe Vialetto is a great go to restaurant.
Wonderful experience! The food was delicious and the restaurant is welcoming and tastefully done. The service was very good and the owner or manager was very hands on and engaged with his customers!
One of the few restaurants in Miami that consistently has excellent food and service!
An outstanding service like always, food delicious, highly recommended.
Amazing as usual and consistent!
Always feel welcomed there!
Always a pleasure to dine there! Not only is the food and service outstanding but you are always greeted by the restaurant owner and makes you feel welcome.
Great food and service . We highly recommend the calamari fra diavolo
Very nice,centrally located,not a fan of $6 + valet parking should be complimentary !!!!
The food was excellent, however the service was slow and lacking, the wait time for our food was about 1 hr, and the place was very noisy
Date Night. Food was excellent
Food was amazing and so was the service
We had an amazing experience. My daughter and I were staying overnight for a visa interview at the Italian consulate. Found your restaurant online. Hugo was a superb server. All of his suggestions from the Pear Ravioli (you’ve got to try it) to the snapper and hard to describe dessert—The Funk. You can not go wrong at this perfect restaurant. Can not recommend it enough.
Every single dish is a culinary experience. Do not miss the meatball polenta appetizer. Every entree is great- be it the osso buco , risotto or pasta. Service is good and the bus boy is a joy.
Excellent service from the minute you walk in. We did the “Miami Spice” and it was a great choice. I highly recommend this restaurant. The owners are onsite to ensure you have a great dinner experience! . Small, but cozy restaurant, great wine selection and prices for bottle 👍
Truly a memorable dining experience. The staff, service and food were phenomenal.
We’ll definitely recommend it and certainly go back.
The food was not good taste simple without flavor the carpaccio was tasteless and thick cut same as the pasta of the year had no flavor at all. The calamari was good and the service was nice
Each course was incredible! My guest had not been to Caffe Vialetto before and was left speechless. The staff also made every effort to make the evening more enjoyable, and the intimate setting is always a great fit to enjoy a carefully crafted meal.
Best food I ever had and the service is outstanding
We’ve always had outstanding food here. The service is great. Friendly place. You really can’t beat it.
Great food and great service , thank you Ernie and Marcelo for a great service 👍
We used to go to Caffe Vialetto often, but we moved away. Now that we moved back we came back to try it out again. What a disappointment. It used to be this very cozy restaurant. I think they expanded it and it is now cold looking, all white, bluish lighting and void of decoration (I guess some people are into that). It used to be that you were greeted by the owners or manager and you always felt welcomed and the food was spectacular. This time we felt rushed and sometimes unattended (there were not that many people). The busboy never asked if he could take away items, including the bread, he just took things away. The food was very good but not spectacular. The wine selection was good too. I did like the fact that you can order half portions. However, we asked the server if it was half price and he said yes... it was not. Not a problem that it is not half price if I know in advance, but do not lie about it. My biggest surprise was that the tip of 18% was included. No wonder it felt like the servers did not care. Yes, you can always tell them to change the tip, but how many people do that and who wants to go through that aggravation? My answer to that is that I will not go there again. To bad and I am sorry, because it used to be a great restaurant.
This place has always been the hidden gem in the Gables! Great food, excellent service, no pretentious nonsense, no alarde.
I have driven past this restaurant every day I go to work because my office is right down the block. It was time to go in, and it more than lived up to expectations and the reputation. A superb restaurant.
Superb staff and overall a great experience.
I found the place to be a very nice one. Food was good and ambiance great.
It has been The best risotto in town and continues to be !!
Service, food, always solid. Owner makes you feel like family. For a restaurant to be open for this long in Miami you know they are doing something right.
We had a perfect evening with some old friends, their first time there and they loved it! We live in the Los Angeles area and were introduced to the restaurant in the last couple of years, this was our third visit. Our friends on Saturday live in Kendall and had never been there before. They loved it!
Keep up the good work, we will definitely be back!
