Really excellent Shrimp Fra Diavolo - shrimp over linguini in a red sauce. Don’t miss that. The pizzas are better than average (say a 4 put of 5.). Call ahead and then pick up - 30 minutes later. Does have some outdoor and indoor tables...as well.More

I’ve traveled all over the world and in particular been to Italy time and time again I love the cuisine in Capri. But Enrico the owner/chef Can match almost anything you get in southern Italy. I have the huge shrimp Fra Diavalo with pasta Or...veal Milanese with a side order of carbonara. Don’t Forget a great bottle of Italian wine to go along with your dinner. Place is a 10 but I hesitate to recommend it because I would go there every night if I could and I don’t want you to take my table LOL.More

Claudia & Endrico truly have a special thing going on. The veal chop was to die for and whatever my friend was eating was delicious too. Im not going to attempt to guess how to spell or pronounce its name but was a dish with...sausage homemade pasta and I thing broccoli maybe. Anyway great atmosphere food and service and nice wines too. On my top list of the best of Lauderdale by the Sea restaurants!More

Enrico & Claudia clearly love what they do, the food is delicious and perfectly portioned. Don’t be fooled by the exterior. The good food is gourmet quality with a small but well-crafted wine selection. There tons of Italian restaurants in this area, but this is...one of the best.More

Absolutely the most outstanding Italian cage I have been too in Fort Lauderdale in years. Hands down delicious made to order homemade pasta. The owner is hands on, staff is wonderful, informative and fun, and again I can’t express enough how delicious the food was....Will be back again. This place is the best among all the numerous other Italian places in town.More

We had dinner last night with friends and can’t speak highly enough about La Cucina Cafe. It is a family run restaurant and when you leave you feel feel like part of the family. Everything is homemade including the bread right out of the oven....The meatballs are the best we ever had. Broccoli rabe with sausage and calamari appetizers were equally superb. The pasta is really the highlight, made daily. I had the veal ravioli bolognese and my wife had papardelle with mushrooms. You can taste the quality of the ingredients as well as the passion of the chef preparing them. The lemon tart dessert was fantastic. What makes it really special are the owners who really let you know they care!More

Based on the reviews we had to try this restaurant and boy were we glad we did. It's a small family run restaurant and the attention to details was impressive. Some of the big chain restaurants could learn a thing or two from them. Its...so hard to find quality authentic italian food in S Florida UNTIL NOW. It isn't the cheapest restaurant but the quality of every dish was so good that we didn't mind. You have gained clients for life - keep up the great work and never lose that authentic feel.

We discovered this little gem and I’m glad we did!! Our family of 12 enjoyed everything - pizzas, pastas, veal, fish. Everything was delicious and service was fantastic. The owners who served us and made the meal were lovely. We would visit again.
