What's is Italian about this restaurant???

Not the true Italian restaurant it claims to be. I felt it catered to a more latin palette which I understand since most of the patrons are latin. The atmosphere outside with all the cigar smoking men is a bit of a turnoff. I was very disappointed in the cuisine and service.

This restaurant is supposed to be a star in the Coral Gables firmament. However, you have to fight your way past the cigar smoking men out front first. Then, once seated, the wait staff streak by as they frantically serve the customers. The food was OK - not spectacular - but the atmosphere is caotic. This is not relaxing dining... More

Year after year after year Abbracci has always been a standout in the Gables dining scene. One of the "go to" spots in the area.

Great high end classic Italian. Sausage and mushroom app was great. Nice specials, patio seating is on the sidewalk but nice to be outside. I would eat here again.

Last night we visited Caffe Abbracci with our best friends from Sweden. This restaurant was outstanding! The service was excellent. Always there but not at your table constantly. The server gave us suggestions and described several individual menu items. The wine list is excellent. The food was served hot and the flavor was one to remember. Coffee and dessert followed...

I am rating this review "terrible" because this restaurant pulled the old "bait and switch" on me and others in my group. Our waiter read off the specials and said they have fresh caught dolphin fish ( Mahi-Mahi ) on the menu tonight. Being a big fishermen Mahi is one of my favorite eating fish. I without hesitation ordered the... More
