If you want a restaurant with attentive service , good quality food in a comfortable yet elegant setting, Caffe Abbracci is the place to go. Love their lobster ravioli! Try them with a rose Proseco. Can't go wrong with this Gables landmark. SH

This was our first visit in years as we moved away from Miami and wanted to try an old favorite.
The service by friendly professionals that never let your water glass empty, ask how your dinner is and seem to anticipate your every need.is not found in many places but it is here
.
The menu is short but has a sampling of pastas, fish, and meat and all are prepared well. They will make your favorites If not on the menu but they have the ingredients on hand.


Nino is still at the door greeting you as if he's known you for years.

Had not been here for a year. It's a classic. In a city where restaurants tumble like leaves in Fall this one is the Energizer Bunny -it just keeps going. Great Ambiance, Funny Waiters, Intimate Decor and Characters..... at the Bar, On the Terrace and at most of the tables. If you ever wondered where all the people go to eat in Miami that are not clad in spandex, do not drive a Ferrari and can actually pronounce some of the dishes on the menu this is the place. A classic. Long may it continue to be the haven against restaurant political correctness that it has always been.
And Nino the owner is a delight. Personally greets every diner.

Abbracci has been in business 27 years and that's how long l've been dining there. The staff knows me and my former waiter is now the Maitre'D and has been for many years. I order the same thing every time because that is why l return each time; to relive the enjoyment of the meal l relished
previously. The decor has been changed to make the place brighter, but frankly l liked it the way it was just as much. My dedication all through the 27 years is testament to my satisfaction; what more can l say!

Absolutely our favorite in Coral Gables. The spaghetti carbonara is the best I've ever had not to mention the dark chocolate covered gelato for dessert. Do not miss Abbracci. You won't be disappointed.

Don't see your dish on the menu ... just ask. I ordered Veal Parmigiana with fries and it was fabulous. Look around the room and see an atmosphere of power and influence -- beautiful people hang out here. Great and cheap wine list. Don't miss this one.

Cafe Abracci is not fancy, nor does it waste time bragging about itself; however, the consistency, quality, service, and food are in fact legendary in Miami. It's a best-kept secret, a local gem, and the place that power-brokers lunch (no wonder), so dining out in the evening is a real pleasure thanks in part to Cafe Abracci.

Despite being among the early arrivals (at 7 pm) we had to wait about 40 minutes after the salad for the main course to be served. By that time we had lost interest in the food.

I have been dining with Abbacci Family since
1991. Chef Mauro's pasta is best in Miami.
and probably NYC!
capelini al iolio with garlic is irresistable!
many seafood dishes are excellent and no small wonder with the incredible volume served nightly.
Lores's hand in the enterprise is a touch of class.
Nino, the owner is always on top of his game.
cant recommend it enough Enjoy!
Btw special occaissions are just that!

The restaurant is very closed in with a claustrophobic atmosphere. The service is not too good even the waiters appearience were not the best . Prices are not according to the food quality and presentation. The dessert Did not have a good presentation neither taste, the same you could buy it at any Bakery store with better quality.

Caffe Abbracci provided an outstanding dining experience. The staff were extraordinarily professional and competent. The two ravioli dishes we had among the best Italian dishes we have eaten. The external ambiance does not properly reflect the interior atmosphere. Once inside, the environment is attractive and comfortable. Highly recommended.
