“Come hungry!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014 via mobile

Not super familiar with downtown Ventura, my husband and I stumble upon this quaint little Italian spot for dinner. Our expectations were exceeded - romantic ambiance (sat close to the fireplace), candle lit tables, low lights. Food was OUTSTANDING, our only regret was that we were both just kind of hungry - so we shared the spinach raviolis. O M G! Gorgeous heirloom tomatoes, tasted garden fresh, and how clever, they serve their raviolis sans cheese, putting the cheese as a topping instead - interesting, delish, unique. SHARED was enough for both, even hungry. Minestrone was ok, not garden fresh, but bread basket yum and red sangrias YUM - but the maple cheesecake - YES PLEASE! Better than homemade, do indulge, do save room, do say yes to maple cheesecake! We have spread the word, Cafe Fiore is not to be missed but come hungry or you will miss out. PDG

“Lovely meal and atmosphere”

We sat on the patio, which was warm and comfortable on a chilly evening. Food was great! Wine was even better.

“Good food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

The restaurant is downtown. Free parking is available in the nearby parking garage.

The restaurant was a bit noisy, with a live band in the bar. As a result conversations between patrons were loud enough to be heard above the band.

That being said, the restaurant is very good. Service is top rate and the dishes we ordered were excellent. I plan to go back on our next Ventura trip.

“Great Italian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

Wife and I enjoyed dinner on a Saturday night. Came upon this restaurant while waiting to eat next door. Choose to eat at Cafe Fiore and were not disappointed at all. We both had pasta dishes and salad that were recommended by the waiter. Food was excellent and the customer service was top notch. Will definitely return when visiting the Ventura area.
