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.

I enjoyed everything we had except the mushroom risotto. I was disappointed that it did not have good flavor and was on the watery side. My gorgonzola salad was excellent. The bruschetta appetizer was excellent and a huge portion with a trio of different types. The Giuseppe pizza was amazing also. I would definitely go back. I just would skip... More

I've eaten at Cafe Fiore and love it. I recently returned from Italy and this is so authentic. Maria Fiore is a first class lady with excellent customer service.

Great restaurant, nice guest welcoming. Good entrees. You will enjoy this visit. Choose between sitting outside, in the restaurant or at high tops at the fire place. We Did the latter.

This has been a main stay Italian restaurant for several years. It has a very busy bar business and reservations are recommended. They make a mean martini! I have not had a bad meal here yet and do not expect to any time soon! some evenings they have local Jazz musicians play in the bar area in front of the... More

Our party of 4 had dinner at Cafe Fiore on a Wednesday night. We were surprised at the wait of 20-30 minutes for a table, but decided to stay. There was live music playing which was nice, and the bar was packed. We were finally seated at a table near the rear of the restaurant which was good because the... More

I invited 11 close friends of my husbands to join us for lunch in the private dinning room at the back of the restaurant. The setting is elegant, the space private and the staff made every effort to make the event a success, including the hostess who kept conversation going while she lead my husband to the party, ensuring his...

Quite a colorful place, very nice ambiance. I suppose we were lured in at first by the $4 per pint happy hour beer prices that were posted. Although we arrived at 6 PM, we were surprised to see that the beer bill was $6 per pint, but not in an argumentative mood we paid the price and were quickly shuffled... More

The treehouse is charming and the sangria is great. Nice romantic dinner spot in Ventura just off Main Street. The ahi was very good - would recommend.

Cafe Fiore has been a popular restaurant for the last several years. Tourists and repeat visitors often frequent this establishment. Be prepared to use metered parking. You may have to look for available parking - consider a nearby city parking lot.
