Funk is the word at Caffe Vialetto. No, not the music genre, but rather a signature dessert that folks just can't get enough of. Think tiramisu spruced-up courtesy of some Heath Bar crunch. What’s more, the treat arrives in a pool of blueberry sauce and condensed milk. There are plenty of other decadent items to enjoy at this Italian-meets-Latin restaurant in Coral Gables. A favorite is the braised short ribs served atop champagne risotto in a demi-glace, as well as an appetizer of pork belly with four-cheese polenta called "meat candy." This locals' haunt has been around since 1999 — a feat that's hard to achieve unless the atmosphere, service, and food are on point.
