Horrible dining experience. Super expensive and food was mediocre. Also, the manager was extremely snobby. He needs to find a different profession. Don't bother coming to this place. Service was terrible but that's because the manager was serving us. You get better service at the Olive Garden and I bed the food is just as good.

Great Food, Great Atmosphere especially outside during the summer. We have been a number of times and always enjoy our food and service. This last visit was very disappointing and we may not return. The food was great as usual. My bill seemed too high when I paid, but I assumed I was in error. In reviewing my bill later,... More

Really high quality Italian meal I tahoe. Who knew. Food, presentation, wait staff and wine selection top notch. I especially appreciate the local wines from Amador.

Cafe Fiore is always on our list to dine at during our week's vacation in So Lake Tahoe. The food is consistently great and has a good selection of standard menu items and specials. The wait staff works in teams and service is very good. They have outside and inside dining. Recommend. No cocktails but very good wine list. Reservations... More

We rent a cabin on Tamarack Avenue every summer and walk to this restaurant. This is the best place ever. The food is delicious. The atmosphere is quaint. The service is stellar. Try their carrot puree. Yummm!

We discovered Cafe Fiore on our first ski trip to Lake Tahoe. We have been back three times and each time we go back to Cafe Fiore. It is a very small restaurant in a tiny cabin. There is no bar and only 7 or 8 tables. Reservations must be made well in advance. On our last visit my husband... More

I really don't like to give bad reviews, because I know what it's like to work in the service industry. It's not easy and hardly a dream gig. Servers and cooks in a restaurant deserve the utmost respect for their hard work---- BUT, I have to be honest, so here goes....The inside is adorable and very clean - super small... More

Cafe Fiore came highly recommended so we made reservations a month in advance since there's only 7 tables. We were really anticipating a meal like none other, but it just didn't quite measure up. My husband and I each had a veal dish which were both tasty, but honestly at $38/entree, I think the veal could have been more tender.... More

This is a quaint romantic restaurant. The food used to be amazing. This time it was just ok. I don't know what is going on in SLT, but this is the 2nd restaurant we have gone to for a long time, that is not what it used to be. That said, maybe it was an off night, and you will... More
