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.

This is a really beautiful, warming, delicious place. Everything is outstanding; the ambience, service and food. Very high quality in every single detail. My husband ate the Bisteca a la Fiorentina and I got the Mari di Fiori; absolutely delicious, at the same time very rich and subtle if this is possible. The tiramisu for dessert was splendid, very soft,... More

Wonderful first night dinner in South Lake Tahoe. The restaurant is conveniently located across the street from the Deerfield Lodge at Heavenly...a 3 minute walk! Charming, cozy, classy! Italian food is our favorite and Cafe Fiore knows preparation and presentation. It is a most special restaurant for birthday or anniversary. Enjoy.

Ate here while in Tahoe two years and thought it was really good. Made it a point to go again this time. The restaurant is small although there is outdoor dining in the summer. Call for a reservation--don't book online if less than four days before date you want to go. We started with the eggplant crepe which consisted of... More

My wife and I ate here the previous time we were in Lake Tahoe, and wisely chose to return. The menu has a variety of great Italian dishes to choose from, so there is likely something for everyone here. The food is delicious, well-presented, and served with an attentive but not intrusive staff. It is definitely a great place for... More

I love this place, but it's small so be sure to make reservations. We prefer to sit on the deck outside, but inside is nice and intimate as well. This trip I had the ScAllopini di vitello and thought I was in heaven. I also love their rich tomatoey minestrone soup. The side dishes are served to share and include... More
