First - thank you so much recent reviewers of Caffe Abbracci - your terrific reviews helped us decide among the many wonderful Coral Gables restaurants of where we would dine for our night in town. Your reviews were all spot-on! We visited Italy in 2010 and this is the BEST Italian food we have had since our return. Everything was fresh and flavorful, leading me to comment that I felt like I needed to get our passports stamped.
As first time Caffe Abbracci diners, we made a reservation not knowing how busy the restaurant would be during the week. We arrived about 45 minutes early and planned to have a drink at the bar, but they were able to seat us right away.
The service was PHENOMINAL. I told our waiter - I wish I had his name - I was debating between four very different dishes and asked for his recommendation. He suggested creating a combination/sampler plate that has the lobster ravioli and the risotto. He also said that if we return and there is something we'd like that is not on the menu, just ask, they may be able to accommodate the request. In addition to the terrific service by our waiter, I also want to compliment the bus boys, those who delivered food, others who refreshed water....impeccable from start to finish. The maître d’ came by and inquired how our meal was, followed shortly by Nino, the owner.
The food was great; the experience was terrific!
In reading the reviews, I noticed a few people complained of the prices. I would say that the median price was $20-$25 per entrée. The portions were very generous. We ordered an appetizer, split a salad, enjoyed our main courses and each ordered a dessert. Had we been able to take leftovers with us, we each would have had a nice lunch portion left for a future meal. Without the wine and dessert, our bill would have been no more than a typical dinner at a nicer national chain restaurant, but the quality was much better than what I find at most national chains.
