Caffe Vialetto Ratings and Reviews
Date night for the day after Valentine's Day. The food was fairly tasty, the wine was nice, and the atmosphere was excellent. The service left something to be desired. It may be due to the fact that they include a mandatory 18% gratuity, even for a party of 2. They evidently don't have to work for a tip since it's built in, so they don't show the same attention as waiters at other restaurants do. Overall, it was a good experience. Not bad, but certainly not great.
Excellent, excellent, and did I mention excellent! I admit we over did it, but hey it’s Mardi Gras so we are like oink oinks. The short ribs amazing as always, not to mention the variety of ravioli. So YUM! But the most interesting dish was our first the Meat Candy. Then we washed all down with a glass of Moscato. Then God for taking a Lyft, we needed to walk it off...Until Easter Viatello!!’
Restaurante italiano con buenos platos. La carta de vinos también es completa. El servicio atento.
La comida es buena.
Único inconveniente es que agregan el 18% de propia de forma obligatoria, sin dejar al cliente la elección en base al su satisfacción con el servicio recibido.
Loved everything about it ! .... except they put an 18% gratuity on for 2 and they would have gotten much more had they not. Also I do not get the paying for parking when it appears as though it is their lot. Nevertheless , I would highly recommend this restaurant.
The food is wonderful. Some of the best short ribs we have ever had. Our first visit was about 4 years ago and a friend had a food allergy. We were so impressed with the owner and chef coming to the table and asking about the issue and what could/couldn't be used. This time was in celebration of our 13th yr anniversary and again the owner came amd congratulated us as well as a complimentary dessert that melted in our mouths. We don't live in the area so view coming here as a special treat. It really is the whole experience from the amazing food, intimate atmosphere and wonderful friendly staff that go out of their way to make you feel special.
The food was really good. I was disappointed upon arriving and seeing that they only sell wine and beer. In addition, the restaurant is too dark for my taste. Not sure if it’s like that daily or only because it was New Year’s Eve and they had some lights on in the inside. Out waiter was welcoming and attentive at first, but after the food arrived, he never checked in on us. We had to flag him down for desert. Overall a decent experience, but not what I was looking forward for my New Year’s Eve dinner. Not sure I’d go back again. There’s other great ones with better ambience that also sell liquor, which is my personal preference.
This used to be one of my favorite places. This time, not so much. The service was veeeery slow, even though the place was relatively empty. We just wanted to get our wine first, then they could take as long as they need. The wine we ordered was not available, but they did make a recommendation that was good and very similar to what we ordered. the bread was hard and cold, and the tomatoes that are served with it were served in big chunks. Not in smaller pieces like it was before. The food main course was good, fantastic flavor and risotto was just perfect. The desert, however, could've been better.
Went to Caffe Vialetto for the first time this evening. We started with the Calamari Fra Diablo, one of the best red sauces I've ever had, very flavorful. Our meals were the Gnocchi and Mady's Chicken - both excellent dishes. We each had two glasses of wine, from a reasonable wine menu, a good selection of "by the glass" and bottles. For dessert, a very untraditional but very yummy Tiramisu. The back lot is valet parking for $5 or you can find something on the street. We were warmly greeted at the door and the staff was helpful and friendly. Yup, we'll be back!!
How wonderful to visit a place repeatedly and not be disappointed ever. Great menu offerings, interesting pleasing specials. Fantastic kitchen & service staff. Great management. Have visited so often it's like putting on comfortable slippers (but tasting much better, of course!! - Sorry, couldn't help it.)...
We enjoyed our first visit to Cafe Vialetto. It was a little confusing getting in as the front entrance is closed because of nearby construction. However, there is plenty of convenient parking in the rear of the restaurant. The service was very friendly - attentive without being overbearing. We were treated as if we were regulars and as the restaurant filled up it was obvious that many of the patrons were regulars. The food was outstanding - I had the buccatini pasta and my wife had the duck medalians. Both were prepared perfectly and were delicious. I would definitely return to this jewel of an Italian restaurant
Went for anniversary dinner and it was perfect. Great food, ambiance and atmosphere. But what really makes it shine and stand out the most to me is the service! Such friendly environment. Limited menu selection, but I happen to like not having to flip through a menu that resembles a book to pick my dinner. This is the kind of place that feels like when you become a regular, everyone gets to know you and treats you like family. Will definitely be back.
Great food, unique tasty dishes . Very attentive staff. The only negatives were the heavy construction nearby and our server not telling us that gratuity had been added to the check. I didn’t think to check since it was only my wife and I. Lesson learned...review your bill.
Upon arriving we were greeted warmly by Ernie and Marcelo, the owners, at least one of whom is always at the restaurant. Even though we arrived early, they found a table for us and we were immediately seated.
Service was excellent and the food was fresh and tasty. You can never go wrong at Vialetto; everything is made fresh.
