My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed a multi course meal, lovely wine list and genuine service. A sweet and cozy spot for my favorite type of food.... Italian!!

The scampi starter was only average as the scampi were dry and cardboard like. The accompanying sauce and spaghetti on the other hand was very good. The starter salad was fine but the vinaigrette dressing was over the top sour and sharp. The mains of spaghetti and sausage was simply just too large and more so because the lamb sausage... More

Tiny place (seven or eight tables) with great food and a huge wine list. This was my second visit and it won't be my last.

The only problem with Café Fiore is its so small you must make reservations well in advance. In many ways its like a very galley, tucked into the woods. Service definitely follows the team approach. Being as small as it is you often feel there's too much attention from the staff. But the food is great, timed nicely so one... More

Once again we enjoyed outstanding food and service at Cafe Fiore. Our Barolo tenderloins surpass or equal anything we've had at Ruth's Chris, the Palm, or Morton's. In addition, we get a full meal, not everything a la carte.

I have never been treated as horribly as i was this evening.. My girlfriend and I were on a girls wknd and made reservations based on a recommendation of one of the locals. We arrived on time and were seated right away. The "server" verbally gave us the specials. After that he would not return to fill our waters/wine, they... More

We made reservations in November for our Feb 14 dining experience. They only had two spots left and we opted for the 7.45 pm seating. As past reviewers had mentioned: it's a tiny restaurant, so small we couldn't find the door to enter it initially! To serve the 7 tables, there were 3 individuals who took orders, cleared plates, refilled... More

As always, great wine, food and service. Never rushed and such a small restaurant makes you feel like your at grandma's house.
