We were greeted by a friendly staff and the owner. Prices are rather "pricey" but the food was very good. Sauce was just as "Nonnie" would have made it. I had the penne with meatballs and the portion was plentiful--There were three nice, all beef meatballs. I asked for extra sauce and the waiter readily brought it. Since they have... More

We have been going to Cafe Vico's for over 10 years and loved in then and love it now! They have expanded the bar area and it now has live entertainment and a terrific happy hour with delicious appetizers! The main dining room is still open if you want a quiet romantic dining experience, but if you want entertainment the... More

For the last five years, we go to Cafe Vico and always had the best dinning experience with the food and the ambience. We were very excited that you guys were opening a Piano Bar. However, we went two weeks ago, saturday night around 9 pm and we sat the Piano bar lounge. There was an excellent Blues and Jazz... More

Excellent Italian food! Excellent service! The bruschetta put on the table on arrival was enjoyed by all. My husband enjoyed the custom ordered breaded chicken with Italian meat sauce. I ordered a gluten free pasta dish with meat sauce. Wine list is excellent. Dessert a must!

Tucked away in a little strip mall on Federal Highway is Cafe Vico, a real treasure. The portions are generous, and they don't mind if you share. I fell in love with the Fettucini Carbonara. The sauce was not too thick and the pasta was cooked just right. They served a delicious bruschetta with fresh tomato and basil to whet... More

We were a large group (8) and the service was impeccable. The food was quite good and I thought a great value. The location is convenient being on Federal Highway just off sunrise and I like the way the restaurant is nestled in the corner of the mall. Has some nice outdoor seating and lots of tables indoors.

Café Vico is our go to place of company, birthdays and anniversaries. Every dish we've tried has been excellent. What makes this a great place is that the service is as good as the food. No matter who walks by your table, if you need something or a plate needs to be cleared it's done. Now that the piano bar... More

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
