With some odd 20,000 plus followers on my Reviews, I write carefully and honestly. How this one remained hidden to me, albeit in a shopping center with ample parking was a true Gem. Don't let the pictures fool you, this is a large 200 seat venue broken into Romantic Areas, Roll the dice and make a reservation, you will simply... More

Happened to be staying near here and bought a Groupon. So glad we did. Got there at the tail end of Happy Hour which had good specials on House wines and 1/2 price on certain apps. Our dinner was so delicious. I had chicken Marsala and my wife a pasta dish which they were happy to make even though it... More

Have been coming here for years. I take clients here, family and friends. Family owned, and Marco Vico makes all who come feel like the restaurant is open just for them. Food is always great, and the wine selection superb. Service never is slow, and the new bar section and music make hanging out here one of the local places... More

Cafe Vico has the best pasta in town. It is in a great location on US 1, great bar and live music. We had another great dining experience on Fri. night and the service was really excellent as always. Their wine list is decent and desert was excellent.

The first two times we ate at Café Vico, we found the food to be good. This visit, though, was a big disappointment. The food was low average, high priced for the quality and the service was mediocre. We probably will not go back for dinner. They do have a good happy hour with a few good appetizers.

Surprising location that may be hard to find, but, worth the effort. Place is a little dark for the cataract impaired, but that does make the bar patrons look better. Enjoy this great place that replaced for top Italian the old Primavera.

This place is great - the service is extremely nice and the food is fantastic, with HUGE portions. Can't wait to actually go there - this time I had to order out. The lasagna was amazing.
