Café Vico serves Italian tradition with innovative flare

Café Vico Ristorante honors tradition with flare. This cozy Italian ristorante in the heart of Fort Lauderdale pulses to its own beat by combining traditional with innovative, which has been its secret formula for success for the past fourteen years.

Marco Vico is Café Vico. Mr. Vico has built this restaurant on his passion for his guests treating them just as he would as if they were in his private home and yet when you walk into Café Vico, you realize you are in someone’s home, Marco Vico’s home. Marco the ever charming and gregarious gentleman greeting each guest at the door; and ladies chivalry is not dead; Mr. Vico kisses the hand of every lady who walks into his restaurant and can actually be seen sitting at various tables throughout the restaurant having a glass of wine with his ‘friends’ as they dine in his very special dining room which is thoughtfully decorated in pleasant hues of yellow and blue, inviting you to sit and stay and eat.

This comfy and delightful restaurant seats 110 people with two private rooms which play host to private dinners and gatherings. The old idea of dinner and a movie has taken on a new meaning at Café Vico where once a month Marco and his team invite guests in for a monthly Wine Dinner and Movie Night. Each month is a different movie with a food and wine premise and the five course wine dinner is expertly paired by Marco and his Chef de Cuisine, Leo Villatoro.

The ambiance and charm of Café Vico is not the only draw that keeps guests coming back, the classic Italian menu for both lunch and dinner is what holds Marco’s diners in constant culinary desire. The award winning Lasagna alla Bolognese hooks Italian food fans and never lets go even to the house specialty Osso Bucco served with a risotto Milanese. The Chicken Ravioli with a baked black cherry and red wine sauce plays second only to the Chilean Sea Bass Picatta beautifully done with capers, artichoke hearts, lemon and white wine sauce. Hard to choose? Shouldn’t be Café Vico is open seven days for lunch and dinner.

A lovely evening out for dinner that exudes charm and delight that also happens to serve wonderful homemade, handmade classic Italian food just doesn’t get any better than that.
