“Family Run Restaurant”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Cafe Vico is special in that it is owned and operated by an individual who truly cares about his customers. The food and service are excellent and the atmosphere is inviting. A nice change from the chain restaurants. Have been there personally as well as for holiday lunches with my office, and have been treated very well each and every time.

“When the boss is away it's not so good”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

have been going for many years & previously really enjoyed it. Since Marco's not there as much, there's always a problem with our food. Not going back.

“Romantic dinner for two”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

My partner and I celebrated our fifth anniversary at Fort Lauderdale and wanted a special place to spend our last evening. Vico was highly recommended by the locals so we made reservations and went there. We arrived a bit late as the drawbridge over the Intracoastal seemed to be on a perpetual open mode (Tip: If coming from the beach resorts, give yourself a bit of extra time just in case). Our reservations were honored on the spot and despite being full, we were ushered to one of the nicest tables in the place.

The bread and olive oil dip came first and it was absolutely divine. You could use the olive oil, garlic and other fresh condiment mix in over pasta and it would be delicious. My partner ordered the Lasagna and I ordered the Frutti di Mare as main courses. Both plates were succulent and the portions would have sufficed for two days had it not been our last day in town. The black and white pasta was obviously fresh from the extruder to the water and was delicious.

Service was outstanding, with a small army of Brazilian waiters tending over us. Striking a conversation with them, we found out they were just about all from San Paulo, which is probably the fine dining capital of Brazil. These guys knew what they were doing.

Memorable experience and will be back. Total check for two with wine was $111. Not cheap but well worth it.
