Delightful Italian restaurant with a terrific wine list. It is a tiny place. Since we were there in the summer, we were able to take advantage of the outdoor seating. The eggplant en carrozza was delicious. i usually avoid fried foods, but it truly was lightly breaded and the sauce was terrific. I had the pasta with sausage and my... More

Our third trip to Cafe Fiore made it worth a fourth. Small restaurant with few tables, but, somehow, the spacing is fine. I tend to like more space but I don't find this to be a problem here and in the summer sitting outside is an option. The food this time around was not quite up to the stellar levels... More

Probably my favorite restaurant in Lake Tahoe. Great food for a reasonable price. Only 7 tables inside, so make reservations. There is outside seating during the summer. Large selection of wine splits, as well as regular bottle sizes.

We had a dinner on the porch on one of summer nights in Lake Tahoe. The place is busy and seems like a lot of locals patronize it , which is always a good sign. Its small, and reservations are advised, we did not have one, since we debating between Cafe Fiore and Chart House, but went for the Cafe... More

My husband and I recently celebrated our 20th anniversary at Cafe Fiore. After 2 previous visits, we could not think of a better place to celebrate. Our reservation was for 7:30pm. That time came and went. However, Nick (the owner) assured us that he would take care of us. And boy, did he deliver! When we were seated, there were... More

Everything about this place is fantastic! We loved the food and service, they even accommodated our small children. I had the seafood special with saffron linguine-to die for! Call ahead for reservations because it is SMALL.

We had a beautiful meal with the help of Sean and his talented staff. From our starter to our finish we loved every moment. We dined on their lovely patio and enjoyed the candlelit setting. Charming and inviting. Actually had a little too much wine but they didn't seem to mind. Sean knows his wine cellar and I asked his... More

I made reservations for Café Fiore before we left on our trip to Tahoe based on other reviews I read. My S. O. and I were very pleased with the food and service provided however I would have been happier indoors. We were greeted immediately upon arrival and taken to on an outdoor patio table as seating is very limited... More

Wow, Cafe Fiore belies its tiny presence in South Lake Tahoe. Tucked behind another restaurant, this little gem shines, from first greeting to cocktails and all the way to dessert. I think the inside restaurant seating might accommodate 30, but they also have great seating out on a deck. We tried the fried green tomatoes for starters and they were... More

We only get to dine here every few years. The quality and the enjoyment of the experience never changes. Actually, it does. It somehow keeps getting better. It starts with the bread. Would you like French Bread with butter or the Garlic Bread - or maybe would you like some of both? What a perfect question! And it is nice... More
