Cafe Vico, one of South Florida’s premier Italian restaurants, started with one small 20-seat dining room in 1997. After two expansions into adjacent spaces, Cafe Vico has grown to five dining rooms and a cozy bar all filled with antiques, collectables and an amazing array of celebrity photos, many signed to owner/chef Marco Vico.
Each room through its architecture and décor is individual but the overall look is cohesive and warm — just one example Marco’s vision for the perfect place to enjoy sumptuous Italian dinners.
Marco’s wife Eclair seeks out all the great collectable ephemera that adds to the ambience of each room. Surrounded by wainscoting and sky-painted blue ceiling, you will be transported and wrapped in Old World Charm.
Tables at Fort Lauderdale’s Cafe Vico Italian Restaurant are set with pale Tuscan yellow linens and dark blue water goblets. As in many Italian and European restaurants, the bread plates are individual, collected from a variety of vintage dinner sets. The lattice-back chairs are comfy and soft jazz plays in the background as a foundation for the sound of clinking glasses, laughter and conversation that surround your special Italian dinner.
There are eight seats at the dark wood bar. Stained glass candleholders wink a warm glow over the highly polished wood. Sparkling glasses are in racks just overhead. In addition to the many wines available by the glass and the 200+ varieties of Italian, American and international wines in the wine cellar there is full bar service.
Stop by for a cocktail like our owner-created Vico-tini or an appetizer with a glass of Italian wine at the bar or settle on a stool.
There is also a shaded outdoor patio dining area and one of the dining rooms also doubles as our movie room during movie nights, part of our regularly scheduled special events. Sign up to be notified of all our special events.
The latest expansion in 2013 is the piano bar that will accommodate up to 60 people along with a small dance floor.
