This is the restaurant we go to when we get homesick for Italia. The food is superb! Staff is very attentive and always eager to please. The osso bucco entree is mouthwatering as is the chicken entrees. The bar/lounge is very inviting and has a homespun feel to it. The only restaurant in the county that makes the wonderful drink, Negroni, almost as good as in Italy. The atmosphere is soothing, fun and makes you want to come back for more. Would recommend this to all who want a relaxing dinner with a fun twist to it!!

Cafe Fiore is very tightly spaced. The booths large pillow backs. They really push you forward, and it's just not possible to get comfortable. We were seated towards the back of the restaurant, near the kitchen and it was uncomfortably hot as well. The food was good, although it was hard to enjoy. The restaurant was full and there wasn't a regular table available.
Their prices are higher, it's rather loud, and I just don't have much desire to return. Except, perhaps to listen to live music, have a drink and dance.
With dinner, a band, the bar area, a small dance floor and small square footage, they try to squeeze in quite a bit in a small space.

We went here after reading the Auto Club review and we were glad that we did.

The food is really good. The homemade chicken and spinach ravioli is outstanding. The pear and gorgonzola salad was very flavorful.

Nice martini bar. Fun atmosphere.

Reasonable prices.

Attentive and friendly service.

The indoor dining room is beautiful. They also have a nice outdoor patio.

Tip: Make reservations.

We have eaten here numerous times with groups from 5-12...We have always been easily accomodated..We always enjoy eating outside on the patio. It's not quite as loud, heaters are always available if needed. The food including appetizers is excellent. We have never had anything that was even just average here. And they have no problem with you bringing your own wine and have never charged us a cork fee. If you want good fresh italian food in a fun atmosphere, you wont be sorry. If you are going on a weekend with a party of more than 4 you should call for reservations for sure.

This is a beautiful restaurant and it is very popular. Martini bar, good wine, excellent food but husband is sensitive to ambient noise--not good for him. It is the hangout for my much-younger sister as well as my very trendy and stylish hairdresser. I love pasta and Cafe Fiore does it beautifully.
