Busy, charming trattoria right off Main Street. Extensive menu with a multitude of Italian dishes. We had the tagliatelle bolognese and it was spot on. Large portion and delicious. Main entree shared was the salmon. A large piece of fish on a full salad with olives, bulgar wheat and tomatoes. Service was fast. Bread basket appeared as soon as we... More

Located just off Main Street in the heart of Ventura, Cafe Fiore is definitely worth a visit. We were just too late to get an inside table as the live music had led to a virtual 'sell out' however the side 'patio', which thankfully is heated, was perfectly pleasant and both food and service certainly lived up to expectation.

Food and service have always been good. Weekend nights can get busy as they typically have live music.

Great place for local food and Italian food selections are excellent. Locally owned and operated, they do things right. You can enjoy different small plates before ordering a fantastic entree. Good desserts as well

I go to Cafe Fiore with girlfriends for Happy Hour. Prices are reasonable, drinks are the best in Ventura and food is great. If you like Italian food check them out.

I love Copping. It is one of my standards for evaluating an Italian restaurant. The amount and variety of fish was inadequate, the broth was was more akin to tomato juice with Italian seasoning. On my own I never go there.

A regular favorite of locals. I like it, ambiance is great, always busy and bustling. I prefer other Italian in the city, but it's always a fun night with good food.

Our family hosted a large bridal shower in the back enclosed patio area in February. It was the perfect event space - large enough to set up and seating for 50+ guests. The bar in the back was an added bonus. I worked directly with the event coordinator and she was STELLAR. She even detailed the contract for me when... More

We went on a beautiful warm evening and sat on the patio the service and food was very good! The bread and dipping sauce they give you when you sit down is amazing with a nice glass of wine.
