Yep, we're serious...very serious. A tiny, beautiful, 7 table restaurant hidden off the main road in South Lake Tahoe and an absolute gem. Café Fiore is a delectable eating pleasure house and if your lucky enough to be one of the few each night that gets to eat there then your trip to South Lake Tahoe will be complete. Once... More

Ok i know i often say what a great meal but trust me this deserves more stars than TripAdvisor can give. We didn't book and were fortunate to get a table in this small Italian style cafe. If you go in the busy season then book well in advance. They have an outstanding wine list too. Good tip, enjoy your... More

My wife and I made a reservation here at the recommendation of some friends. This is a very small, quaint, personal restaurant. I believe there were 7 or 8 tables. The kitchen is on the opposite side of the wall and it makes for a nice, unique atmosphere. The staff was very nice, professional and helpful. The food was great,... More

This is a small Italian restaurant so a booking is a must. It's simply beautiful from start to finish. Decor is perfect and crisp white linens are a statement of what is to come. Fine dining so be prepared to pay for it. We found it good value as it's superb food, served nicely from very informative staff and accompanied... More

Cafe fiore never disappoints. From the hot garlic bread to the house made salad or minestrone and the fresh swordfish that is out of this world. The seafood pasta in a light butter/caper sauce is excellent and the desserts are amazing. Entrees are served with family style sides that vary on the season and are delicious. Creamed carrot/zucchini/baby potatoes and... More

This is a seven table restaurant hidden in a cabin some blocks above the Lake. It has a menu which leans Italian, with pasta and good bread, but has food on the menu which can't be found often. I had the veal with funghi , my sister the Saltimbocca, my husband, the spicy linguini with loads of seafood. They were... More

An unexpected gem of a restaurant. Very intimate and romantic for a special celebration. They offer an amazing wine list and have excellent local and classic appetizer and entry offerings. The service was impeccable! We will definitely return.

Has been 18 years since visiting this quaint eatery and little has changed....thank goodness! This place is not for the heavy spiced, heavy salted eaters. This is a place to appreciate subtle combos of flavor that excite those hidden taste buds that are abused by so much of today's dining choices. Excellent service this evening with perfectly executed pastas and... More

Our family came to the restaurant with high expectations based on the reviews. The restaurant is small and intimate with less than ten tables, the ambiance and the service are good. But the food was disappointing and over-priced. For the appetizers, we ordered fried calamari and wild mushroom bruschetta. The breading for the calamari was good, but the calamari was... More

The ambiance and bruschetta are good and the service is very friendly. However, the restaurant is overpriced for what you get. I'm afraid the pasta was not that good, the scallops were over cooked. Wine is expensive. I had to give the restaurant a try but won't likely return.

Thank Alan H
