It’s impossible to talk about Caffe Abbracci in Coral Gables without mentioning the late Nino Pernetti, whose hospitality warmed the community when he opened it in 1989. But that spirit of hospitality is still there. At this classic Italian spot, you’re treated with familiarity, whether they know you or not—but if they do, service is so personable they probably remember your high school GPA.

The beef carpaccio is thin enough to cut with a spoon and the linguine with clams is delicious. But our favorite is the veal parmesan. It’s not on the menu, but they can prepare veal any way you want. This upscale restaurant has two sections: a bar with a stained glass ceiling and an intimate dining room. It’s a time warp—with soundproof ceilings and walls—but a welcome one that insulates your table from neighboring conversations. It’s the perfect restaurant to bring people you actually enjoy talking to.
