We had an amazing experience. My daughter and I were staying overnight for a visa interview at the Italian consulate. Found your restaurant online. Hugo was a superb server. All of his suggestions from the Pear Ravioli (you’ve got to try it) to the snapper and hard to describe dessert—The Funk. You can not go wrong at this perfect restaurant. Can not recommend it enough.

Every single dish is a culinary experience. Do not miss the meatball polenta appetizer. Every entree is great- be it the osso buco , risotto or pasta. Service is good and the bus boy is a joy.

Excellent service from the minute you walk in. We did the “Miami Spice” and it was a great choice. I highly recommend this restaurant. The owners are onsite to ensure you have a great dinner experience! . Small, but cozy restaurant, great wine selection and prices for bottle 👍

Each course was incredible! My guest had not been to Caffe Vialetto before and was left speechless. The staff also made every effort to make the evening more enjoyable, and the intimate setting is always a great fit to enjoy a carefully crafted meal.

We used to go to Caffe Vialetto often, but we moved away. Now that we moved back we came back to try it out again. What a disappointment. It used to be this very cozy restaurant. I think they expanded it and it is now cold looking, all white, bluish lighting and void of decoration (I guess some people are into that). It used to be that you were greeted by the owners or manager and you always felt welcomed and the food was spectacular. This time we felt rushed and sometimes unattended (there were not that many people). The busboy never asked if he could take away items, including the bread, he just took things away. The food was very good but not spectacular. The wine selection was good too. I did like the fact that you can order half portions. However, we asked the server if it was half price and he said yes... it was not. Not a problem that it is not half price if I know in advance, but do not lie about it. My biggest surprise was that the tip of 18% was included. No wonder it felt like the servers did not care. Yes, you can always tell them to change the tip, but how many people do that and who wants to go through that aggravation? My answer to that is that I will not go there again. To bad and I am sorry, because it used to be a great restaurant.

I have driven past this restaurant every day I go to work because my office is right down the block. It was time to go in, and it more than lived up to expectations and the reputation. A superb restaurant.
Superb staff and overall a great experience.

We had a perfect evening with some old friends, their first time there and they loved it! We live in the Los Angeles area and were introduced to the restaurant in the last couple of years, this was our third visit. Our friends on Saturday live in Kendall and had never been there before. They loved it!

Keep up the good work, we will definitely be back!

For the first time in YEARS, with over half the tables empty on a Tuesday night, service was ridiculously slow as we waited almost an hour for food to be delivered table side, and either server failed to communicate with the kitchen, or kitchen ignored server as to items ordered. I believe the former. Our server, if and when at table side, was like deer in headlights. Not accepting a table in THAT server's area again!! If nothing else available we'll walk out.

Incredible food! Have tried to no avail to replicate the risotto, it’s the best I’ve ever had. Highly recommend the pear ravioli - amazing.

Service was excellent, friendly staff and very efficient.

It was 3 of us 2 of the plates were cold cold not even the plate itself was warm. It was taken and return it took like 10 minutes. So I had to eat by myself the returns plates the fish was good but the duck was then over cooked. Not even an apology from management or a free dessert or coffee for the huge inconvenience of not having dinner then 3 together

We have been to Caffe Vialetto many times over the years and always enjoyed it as a special place to dine. However, this time we did not find the food to be as exquisite as in the past. In particular, the tuna tostone appetizer was very disappointing. The tostone was not crispy nor fresh and the slices of tuna were difficult to cut because of all the white membranes. Definitely not on par with our past dining experiences, so a bit disappointing this time. Also, a glass of prosecco at $12 is a bit steep. Nevertheless, service was excellent & one of the owners - not Ernie- was gracious, as always, so we would not discount returning, as Caffe Vialetto has always been one of our favorite places to dine. And, to be fair, we did not advise the owner who was there re the above.

Service was great as was our wine and dinner.
The fried Calamari was so tender and probably the best I have had. Both pasta dishes were absolutely wonderful.
It’s been a few years since we have been back, it’s a winner!

Ernie the owner was kind enough to adjust my reservation a little later which was a big help with traffic. He checked on us several times throughout the evening to make sure we were doing ok. Great service and food was delicious. We will return.

Best Italian/Continental cuisine in town! If this restaurant was located in trendy Wynwood, Brickell or South Beach, you wouldn't be able to get a reservation for months.

Food is amazing. If you dont want something off the menu, they'll make it for you. If you're looking for a romantic, intimate setting this is the place. Servers are attentive and give great customer service.
