What our diners say about us
“I want to clarify the state of Italian food in South Florida. There is only one true Italian restaurant with a familial welcoming and polished presentation of food. There is no other true Italian restaurant other than Cafe Vico. The owner Marco has time and time again proven to us their cuisine far supersedes all others. Gratzi Marco! We have found our favorite Italian restaurant.”

“Their Italian meatballs are a must!!! Their bartenders make a mean dirty martini and they have nicely priced wine options to boot. On their menu you will find amazing pastas, to die for seafood and fish dishes, veggie friendly offerings, and desserts! You can't go wrong with their Shrimp Scampi or Osso Buco. But wait they will, and always do have, nightly SPECIALS. Hooray for Garlic Paradise!”

“I remember the first time we came to Cafe Vico, our friends told us they had ‘the best lasagna in the world.’ Well, of course, I poo pooed that - how could that be. Besides, the best lasagna is either in Italy or, surprisingly, the UK - I hate everything smothered in cheese. Well... they were right. Cafe Vico does have the best lasagna in the world, coupled with a great decor and atmosphere. Love it!! Highly recommend Cafe Vico always.

“Best Kept Secret in Fort Lauderdale
Cafe Vico was born from the passion of making great food and treating everyone like family. …The owner Marco always makes everyone feel welcome. The best appetizer is the veal meatballs. Prepared in a white wine mushroom-based brown sauce. (Because it’s a special) It is the single most amazing thing not on the menu. A good Italian wine list with reasonable prices offers a great accompaniment to any meal. Known for their lasagna but just as good is the Osso Buco. Everything on the menu is fabulous. A great bar and atmosphere can always be found at Cafe Vico. Ciao Bella!”
