Had a really great experience here with my family! The wait staff was very attentive and our water glasses never went empty! Amazing authentic Italian food. Would come here again next time we visit!

I recently had lunch with a group of friends at "Cafe Vico" in Ft Lauderdale. The restaurant has a wonderful ambiance and would be well suited for a romantic evening or business lunch. The hostess was very friendly. The waitstaff was attentive. We did have to ask our waiter for refills on water and ice tea. The busboy also removed... More

Cafe Vico is one of Fort Lauderdale's top Italian restaurants, a convivial restaurant with an Old World belief in service and a continental sense of culinary flair. The fresh pastas are particularly good - including pappardelle with sausage and rappini and squid ink spaghetti with a bright and fruity tomato sauce. There is a full range of classic Italian dishes... More

This is a nice Italian restaurant recently renovated and enlarged. The food is very good, the variety is great, and the service is very accommodating. Although the location is good, parking can be challenging. I highly recommend making dinner reservations as this place is very popular.

We have eaten here many times and always have the best service and the most delicious food. Last night we went to dinner with 15 friends following our wedding. They easily accommodate us and it was a fantastic evening. We highly recommend Cafe Vico for any and all events big or small.

Having been to Cafe Vico 2-3 times over the last couple of years, we once again dined there last night. It was superb! Our server, Jaxson (sp?) was excellent...he was attentive, informative, friendly and polite. He was very good at his job. Warm bread was served that was crusty, and soft. It was perfect for the garlic/herb olive oil in... More

Came here while on vacation in Ft. Lauderdale.. Located in a strip mall. Was surprised how big it was once we got inside. Both my son and myself started off with a bowl of Pasta Fagioli. It was a very large portion but we both thought there was too much celery in it. The bread and garlic for the table... More
