“Excellent Italian / Carribean Fusion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

This is a very nice, somewhat cozy venue serving up nicely prepared, generous servings of Italian dishes with a bit of Carribean flair. The Meat Candy app is really good. Pork belly served with a hint of clove and nutmeg, we ordered another. Ravioli was excellent as we're the sea food specials of the evening: ahi, salmon and yellow tail. The papperadelli short rib was rich and flavorful.

Service was good and attentive. Pricing is moderate/high.

I'd go back!

“My very favorite Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

The food never disappoints. The staff goes overboard to make you feel welcome. The owners greet you upon arrival and will remember you by name the next time you come in. I have a favorite special and if I call them a day in advance they will have it ready and waiting for me when I come in. Service like that is hard to find. No matter whether its lunchtime or dinner, they aim to please. If a certain sauce offered is one you aren't familiar with, no reason to be worried, they will bring out a sauce sampler so you can taste the sauces available and decide what you would like on your fish, steak or chicken. My husband isn't a big fan of having to walk in through the back and pass the garbage dumpster...it does tend to put a damper on the ambiance, but its quickly forgotten when you sit down to your excellent dinner and wonderful wine selection.

“Cozy place, delicious food, great times...what's not to like?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

So we headed to Cafe Vialetto this week for dinner with friends and family. The place is very easy to get to, with valet and street parking available. We had reservations which were quickly honored and the staff was more than friendly and helpful with special request for additional seating.
The food was just great. The salmon carpaccio and meatballs were excellent to start with, and the from the main entres, the short ribs, pasta del año and the fruta di mare risotto in champane sauce were just incredible.

Overall, this was a great experience, with the food and service being excellent. We'll be back soon

“Fish & Risotto - perfection!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

The fish was cooked perfectly, melted in my mouth. The champagne sauce risotto was very creamy and delectable. I would definitely recommed this for dinner. The dessert "The Bomb" is a piece of chocolate heaven - texture and taste is an adventure all in of itself.
