“Wonderful meal in Lake Tahoe”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Cafe Fiore is a small restaurant on a quiet street in South Lake Tahoe. They specialize in Italian food. The quality of the food, the presentation, and the artful use of ingredients was very impressive. As an added benefit, you can bring your own wine and they will pour it for you for a modest charge. I would go back in a heartbeat.

“Intimate Fine Dining at its best”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Had a wonderful meal with my family over the weekend. Service was good and the food was excellent. A large and varied wine list with some very good vintages. We opted for the Opus One and it did not disappoint. A little on the expensive side but worth the experience.

“Great Food But...”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Tahoe. However, this time we had an issue. We ordered a bottle of wine and offered a taste to the server. He ended up pouring a taste for about 4 people. Another server came over later and thanked us for the wine taste. We thought after taking such a large taste they could have offered us coffee or dessert. But they did not! Thought this was not the way a nice restaurant should operate.

“Tiny restaurant, great food”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

There are not many tables here, so you need a reservation, but it's worth it. The garlic bread ($4, not complimentary) is brought out fresh from the oven and full of flavor. I had the pasta with sausage. I loved it as the sausage had lots of flavor. Hubby had the halibut which was done to perfection with a delightful sauce. For dessert, the white chocolate ice cream is a must. The pours on the wines by the glass are 8 oz and that's on the wine list. Very nice. I will go back the next time I'm in Tahoe. There were essentially two waitresses who work very hard and were good. They could describe the dishes and the wines clearly.

Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

Very nice Italian food . Very small so early reservations are recommended. Food is good but not a place for the view.
