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.

Being from the NY/NJ area we are spoiled when it comes to good Italian food. This usually sets the bar high for us. This place was a pleasant surprise as it's tucked in a small strip mall. Cute patio dining and very attentive service . Found it on Open Table and should be much higher rated on Trip Advisor. I... More

We have been there with another couple as well as with a large group celebrating a special birthday. Service was excellent, and the food was superb. Even with a large group, everything was hot, fresh, and delicious. It's a great Italian restaurant. Ronald & Sheila P

Prior to joining Trip Advisor I have dined at this location a few times thoroughly enjoying each occasion. Despite having an early reservation things were not quite up to past standards. Ordering the scallop special appetizer, only 2, we found only 1 eatable. Sent the other back, upon its return nothing they did could change its unacceptability. Told them this... More

Found this delightful Italian place because we were invited to a Financial Presentation. Consisted of what I would consider a continuous stream of delicious appetizers as opposed to a normal sit down dinner. If this is an example of their dining fare, I most heartily recommend the place.

We have been dining here for a long time, but not on a regular basis. The food is consistent, but the prices have gone up tremendously. I had the veal piccata for $28, and I can have the same quality and quantity elsewhere for $7-8 less. The house salad is good, but nothing special for $10. The service and the... More

First time here and I will be back. The place is deceiving from the outside as it is in a strip shopping mall. Looks like a small restaurant from the front, but it's a pretty good size once inside. I had the lasagna (recommended by a reader on Yelp) that was over the top excellent (had some left over for... More

We discovered Cafe Vico when they had just opened many years ago and fell in love with the place. The food is very authentic and the pasta is made in house fresh daily. People who state the food is “frozen" or "like canned" have no idea what homemade fresh food taste like. The Gnocchi for example are amazing, not mushy,... More

My husband and I have been going here for years. We love the atmosphere with service that is consistantly good. The food is always made fresh with recipes that the owner has perfected. My big complaint is that his linguine with white clam sauce is better than mine! The person who said the food was microwaved either is uniformed about... More
