We had been there before and loved it so we decided to go again with the gang and it was great!!! Cafe Vico apparently has expanded and added an entire new section. It has a cozy beautiful piano bar and a new private wine room that a large party was in on Sat night. The new entrance makes it seem... More

My husband and I will be traveling to Vico del Gargano this fall and I've driven by Café Vico at least a couple times a week for months, so we finally decided to stop in. I knew nothing about it, except that it is an Italian restaurant and the name inferred the owners may be from Puglia, where the Gargano... More

First, let me say that I hate to be THAT guy... But I have to call our trip to Cafe Vico what it is - a total Dud. After looking at the reviews on trip advisor about how outstanding this place is me and my wife decided to give it a try. It didn't hurt that we found a groupon... More

I am a big fan of Cafe Vico, largely due to their yummy lasagna. It is not your average lasagna. It has a delicious bechamel sauce that really sets it apart from typical lasagnas. The restaurant is in an unassuming little strip mall and the place can fill up and get pretty tight inside but it still has a very... More

We have dining here for over 10 years. The best lasagna & chicken parmigiana in town. Every guest we have introduced say the same. Great staff and ownership, always makes you feel like part of the family. They just expanded with a great piano lounge. Now entertainment to go with a great meal. What a delightful addition to an evening... More

For any of you that have been to Italy, you know not to look at the exterior of a building to determine the quality of the restaurant. Cafe Vico is just that. When we arrived I questioned in my mind the location, once I walked in the front door that all disappeared. The walls are covered with photos of celebrities,... More

Hidden in a strip mall, it's worth discovering. Locals suggested it and everything was tremendous. Lasagna, ravioli, both seafood and cheese/ravioli, chicken marsala... great stuff.

Food is very good but get way too large of portions. If you want to share they charge you $10. I think $37 for a fish dish is too much. The service was very good.
