Nice restaurant. The ambience is great. The food is delicious. They have good vegetarian choices. The wine collection is good too. And some wonderful music as well.

Cafe Vico deserves the Certificate of Excellence. It offers great italian in a more than friendly atmosphere. The food is crafted and it shows. They also offer gluten-free options. If you're into lasagna, go for it. They're also partnered with Delivery Dudes so you can enjoy their food at home.

My friend took me here for a birthday treat before we had to go back to work at the Broward Center. We will be coming back so that we can spend more time here. What an awesome experience! They were so accommodating as we were stressed for time! The food was outstanding. This is definitely a place to take someone... More

My first visit to the then tiny & charming Cafe Vico was some 15+ years ago. The space has greatly expanded today, maybe 5-fold, but the warmth, the charm and the quality has remained constant, including the owner's ever-present oversight and his gregarious involvement to detail! We hosted a dinner for 15 recently at Cafe Vico - sometimes a daunting... More

We recently had an event for an anniversary with 24 people at this excellent restaurant. Every step of the way from the planning to the evening's dessert was wonderful. From the owner Marco to each member of the staff who helped us, there was an attitude of helpfulness that is too uncommon today. These folks wanted to please in every... More

Service was great, loved the decor and cozy feel. Food was good - I had the lasagna which was good but very rich. My husband had the 16 oz pork chop - delicious. Big portions, very friendly and attentive staff.

The owner greeted us at the door. (I don't want to spoil any surprises) but his greeting really made us feel like we were royals... do I look like Kate Middleton or just dress like her? The service was first class, the food delicious and they have Gluten Free pasta options which made me happy. They have added a larger... More

Last evening, New Year's Eve, I met with friends for dinner at Cafe Vico in Ft. Lauderdale. This long standing establishment is so inviting. There's indoor and outdoor seating. The owner, Marco Vico, warmly greeted us. We, seven, were seated at a round table that was perfect for our group. Our server was attentive; wines were ordered and the evening's... More

We celebrated a 60th birthday at a long table with 17 guests. The waiters took people's orders efficiently and guests got their food at the same time. The flounder and scampi pasta were standouts. Thank you for a lovely evening!
