Mangia, Mangia!!

After a long day on the road, we stopped in for a late dinner and didn't really know what to expect, but we were hoping for a decent bowl of pasta at the very least. We were not disappointed! The wait was about 15 minutes as the place was pretty busy, but once we were seated we were able to... read more

Definitely my favorite restaurant in my home town, Cafe Fiore is excellent in both selection and preparation of Italian food. My favorite dish, which I have dubbed "road kill" is a de-boned chicken (it' looks like it was run over by an SUV) in a fabulous sauce with sauteed spinach and roasted potatoes served to the table in a sizzling...

Excellent service and food. We had a family reunion with 109 guest and they accommodated us with the whole back room and the wait staff and servers kept everyone happy and taken care. If your having a large or small gathering in the Ventura area We would highly recommend this restaurant

Both my Mom and I had their special risotto offerings and both were very good. Mine was goat's cheese and chive risotto with sautéed pork tenderloin and Mom's was Gorgonzola risotto with grilled lamb chops. We thought we's just have a small portion of meat with the risotto but both of us had very generous servings. The restaurant looks like... More

Very nice Italian restaurant. Food was delicious and our waitress was fantastic! We had 2 grandkids with us who are very picky eaters. One settled on the spaghetti with meatballs while the other could find nothing. The waitress had them make a special dish for her which was just to her liking. Would definitely go back if we're in this... More

Celebrated my #57 here on July 2, 2015 with my husband and friend that flew in from out of state. Started with the most amazing Triple Berry Mojito and polenta sticks as an appetizer during the Happy Hour. Then to the dining room and on to the meal, oh my! I had the pesto fettucine and my husband and friend... More

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.
