Great Place for an intimate dinner

Went back to one of our favorite restaurants. It is small, intimate place. It seats fewer than 20 diners. My wife ordered the swordfish special and I had the Dijon pork tenderloin. Both were delicious. The hostess/servers; Kate and Brian were very good. They kept a comfortable dining, with... read more

Just a great little place, unmistakeably rustic Tahoe. There is a great variety on the menu and nightly specials for the restaurant's size,yet everything is superbly fresh, and an excellent wine list too. Their sauces are outstanding, obviously made from scratch. It's tight quarters which adds to the ambience and you mostly overhear how this is a persons Tahoe favourite.... More

The cafe has a seven tables in the winter, and expands to an outdoor deck in the summer. Nice Italian food in a quiet and intimate setting provided for a lovely evening.

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.
