“Seriously overpriced and rude Waitstaff!”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

cheese & the worst was the appetizer that was their special for the evening, consisted of two shrimps wrapped in a tiny bit of prosciutto. Their idea of flavor is drowning everything and garlic. honestly the best part was the bread. we will never return there again!

“Best lasagna in town”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

Its unbelievable that after all the times we've been to Cafe Vico I haven't written a review. We have been dining here almost since the day Marco open the doors many years ago, when it was just a quaint little room. Now it's a very vibrant restaurant with a larger dining room added, along with an even smaller area for a private dinner. They also have taken over 2 other rooms now, and the last one will be a piano bar which will open up off the main dining area. The food is superb, the lasagna is the very best in town ( and we have tried many others) and the service is top notch. Marco & his wife have done a wonderful job, and the personal attention from Marco when he greats you at the door is first class. We highly recommend Cafe Vico., for a special occasion, for romance (ask for the smaller room) for foodies and fun.

“Best Kept Secret in Fort Lauderdale”
Reviewed 15 June 2013 via mobile

Cafe Vico was born from the passion of making great food and treating everyone like family. Sometimes in the kitchen, sometimes a smiling face to greet you, the owner Marco always makes everyone feel welcome.

The best appetizer is the veal meatballs. Prepared in a white whine mushroom based brown sauce it is the single most amazing thing not on the menu.

A good wine list with reasonable prices offers a great accompaniment to any meal. Known for their lasagna but just as good is the Osso Bucco everything on the menu is fabulous. A great bar and atmosphere can always be found at Cafe Vico. Ciao Bella!

“Family Run Restaurant”
Reviewed 5 June 2013

Cafe Vico is special in that it is owned and operated by an individual who truly cares about his customers. The food and service are excellent and the atmosphere is inviting. A nice change from the chain restaurants. Have been there personally as well as for holiday lunches with my office, and have been treated very well each and every time.

“When the boss is away it's not so good”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

have been going for many years & previously really enjoyed it. Since Marco's not there as much, there's always a problem with our food. Not going back.
