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.
Excellent!!!

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.

Great Service. Great location. Great ambiance. Very romantic place.
The food ... Blend and Horrible, and with super strong flavors (Apple Blue cheese and Short ribs risottos)
No way the can ask $23 to $26 for blands risottos.
Polenta was made out of White Cornmeal or grits, but nothing like a normal polenta that are a tradition in any Italian restaurants.
We are sorry but the quality of food is not at the level of the prices, the service and the quality of this restaurant in Coral Gables.

Too noisy, food was ok. The frutta di mare risotto was tasty mainly by the lobster bisque sauce but the seafood none present, few little pieces found could have been anything , they should advertise that the shrimp, calamari & scallops are blended in the sauce menu is misleading. Biggest disappointment was the pork belly, it was a boiled piece of lard, that when I turn it around gross me out , it was slimy & colorless, awful & I have eaten this in many many restaurants. This was my 3rd visit, unfortunately this time was a miss.

Firstly: I have to say that the service were acceptable may be slightly above that it took us forty minutes to get seated despite our reservation granted tha people weren’t leaving, the food was very good
Now, The noise in this place is unbearable and i am using that word for the lack of other I don’t think energetic is a word Open Table should use for this place people were screaming without any consideration
I would never recommend this place

Service was not great. Waiter was very attentive at the beginning but would go missing for long periods of time, appetizer came out lukewarm. Mushrooms in the pasta dish we ordered tasted like they came out of a can.

Our first time to Caffe Vialetto. The food was very good, well presented and portions were very good. We went on a Saturday night and it was very noisy. It was Saturday night, but just too loud for me. Service was good but not exceptional. The valet, however, was fantastic - of all things!
Easy to find, not so easy to get to parking, unless you know the Gables well.
Drink prices were very good, did not really check out the wine list.
I do believe overall, it was a good experience, but was a little pricey for what we got. There are too many great options in Miami for me to go back, but I would recommend it if anyone asked.

This is a place we’ve visited regularly, over a decade, or more. This time we were meeting visiting friends. The evening began by our learning that the restaurant had a party of 20 people..AND NOT NEARLY ENOUGH HELP to service the party. The answer was that our party of four, having made reservations for the evening, was served by the owner, AS HE HAD TIME TO GIVE US SERVICE. We didn’t have an assigned wait person for the entire evening. We had to struggle to get drink orders, food orders, etc.
The evening was filled with slow service, while the staff was struggling to serve the large party.

Our salad was average; the main course was average. We ordered a bottle of wine, which was consumed before our main course arrived. We ordered a second bottle of wine which didn’t get served until after we’d finished our meal.

But, the best part was the 18% tip included on the bill, with no one offering apologies for the horrible evening. The pain continued as we struggled to get a staff person to process our bill.

A customer shouldn’t have to work so hard to spend $250+ in a restaurant.
