Only for a drink!

Nice bar and good selections. We only go for a drink, but was a great experience! The bar girl was amazing, and prepare for us a great Margarita and a old fashion.

Tried it 3 - 4 times and liked the lunch okay but not crazy about their menu. Didn't care much for the dinner and later found the place to loud for my taste particularly when the music starts. The place is too small to have the band in front.

Use to be my favorite resturant in Venture, but they have lost their focus on food. The bar seems to be most important to them now. The last time I got their oso bucco I had to send it back, poorly cooked, hard to cut and tasteless. My wife's dish was ok. The noise from the bar was annoying. This... More

Went to Cafe Fiore after the line at Lure next door was 1/2 hr wait. Glad we came! Great pear salad and wonderful lobster ravioli made a complete meal at reasonable prices. Good service and a quiet atmosphere made a completely enjoyable experience. Will definitely come again!

We found the food and service just average when we visited for an early dinner. The location is great being downtown and next to the parking structure, but there are much better Italian restaurants within a few blocks.

The food is tasty but the beverages are even better. Many amazing mixologists work or have worked there to develop drink menus that fun, flavorful and different. From spicy to sweet to savory there's many different options to choose from. They also regularly have live music!

We live in Ventura and occasionally eat at Cafe Fiore. The food is always excellent and the service is top notch! The menu is not your typical Italian fare; most of their dishes are unique and it's always difficult deciding what to order.

Great meal. Great Martini. Went on a Saturday night and met friends at 5 PM, ordered dinner within 30 minutes and did not leave until 8:40 PM. No desserts, not a lot of drinks (most in party were running in marathon next morning). Took a while to get appetizers and main dinner dishes. we were a party of 10-11.
