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.

A local Tahoe resident guided us to Cafe Fiore for an Italian dinner during our three day visit to Lake Tahoe...and oh, we're we found the perfect place for a wonderful meal! Called at 11:00 am on Friday and made 6:00 pm reservations to sit outside (they have a perfect heating system for the patio). First impression: what a quaint... More

This quaint little Italian restaurant had a wonderful ambiance - and the food was outstanding. Our best meal during our stay in South Lake Tahoe.

Cafe Fiore is quite small and advance reservations are a must. They ask for four days notice, so we called on a Saturday for a Wednesday night reservation. This was at the end of September so if you go mid summer make your reservation a couple of weeks ahead if possible. The food is just outstanding year after year! Their... More

For our anniversary we decided on this restaurant. It is tiny, very cozy and charming, great service. The wine list is pricey. The food was mostly standard Italian fare, with some innovation, especially the eggplant crepe: thinly sliced eggplant folded over and stuffed with salmon. Delicious! This is a special occasion restaurant, and worth the price for that reason. Reservations... More

We took a chance on getting in without a reservation on a Friday night, and we were very lucky indeed; reservations are strongly advised. The menu is mainly Italian, with a strong emphasis on fish and seafood; but I have reason to believe, from talking to other guests, that everything is good. My scampi were delicious. The service is really... More

This was the smallest restaurant that my husband and I have ever eaten at. I believe it has 7 tables inside and just a few outside. We enjoyed our meal. Only beverages available are wine, sparkling water or plain tap water. Most tables are only for 2 people.

Thank Laura F
