I had been here previously and the dinner was just okay. this time the food was very good. I got the butternut squash pasta and my hubby got the italian sausage. Both were very good. My pineapple rum mojito was delicious. We would definitely try this place again.

The room is dimly lit. Too dim for my liking. They were very busy which is usually a good sign. The wait staff was prompt with menus and waters. I could barely read the menu for the lack of light,. The food service was dreadfully slow and we had three children with us. The lobster bisque was very good but... More

Been here a few times. Last night it was packed but the service slow and food not even just ok. I wont be going back. Good for them to be busy but get some staff so we dont have to wait 30 minutes between each visit to the table.

upon entering the restaurant for dinner, the response from our group was, oh, how nice is this. The decor is welcoming, and if you will cozy. The service is very responsive and the food is oh so good. So many flavors. And my work colleague proclaimed the lentil vegetable soup was the best he had ever eaten. Conveniently located in...

This is a great meeting place after work in the downtown Ventura area. They have seasonal special drinks that change as well as interesting nibbles. I usually stay for dinner. Very friendly staff. Comfortable, charming atmosphere. Very good Italian food.

Cafe Fiore used to be the in spot when it opened 7 or so years ago. However, since then, the place seems exactly the same....but older, dirtier, with a little less quality of food.
