Just enjoyed a lovely meal at Cafe Fiore. Lively restaurant with live music and nice ambience. My husband really enjoyed the butternut squash ravioli and the pear Gorgonzola salad was wonderful. Highly recommend!

Went for a light dinner before our show at the Ventura Majestic Theater. It was great, a bit pricey but worth it.

This restaurant was good and service was friendly. We had a great caprese salad, a delicious minestrone soup and meat lasagna ( a little salty but eatable). Also had a fiore sangria which wasn't good tasty but very strong so I did drink it all :).

5 minute walk from Crown Plaza, next to one of the other best in town. Name fools you but it's an old Italian resturaunt that serves great fish and meat. We started with tasty, crispy grilled octopus. Not calamari. Way better, haven't had it prepared this way before, and plentiful. My wife had a succulent, grilled sea bass with grilled... More

Food and beverage were outstanding. Arrived early and seated with no problem. Staff was friendly and attentive. Two couples enjoyed a delightful evening and a memory was made for the "Birthday Girl"!

Delicious. The Lamb Shank is my favorite. They also have some very unique and tasty appetizers. Sit at the kitchen bar - the two seats on the right are the best - and watch the chefs work. Wait until you've seen a few dished prepared before you commit to your order, otherwise you'll keep seeing something that makes you say... More

Our food was good, not the best Italian I have had, but nice & fresh , just not extraordinary. The wine selection was good. Ambiance fine. Everything was clean. Our server was polite, friendly, & attentive. I believe I would return for lunch. I do not believe the prices reflect the quality of the food, too high for a non... More

Romantic-Good Food and Good Service I should have checked the website- up until 6pm they have some great special Happy Hour Pricing! There are some nice bistro tables along a wall that is all wood and filled with wine bottles which is kind of private and romantic- vs some tables that are more European where you are sitting right next...

We walked up on a 3-day weekend Sunday night and even though they were busy, got a table quickly. Above average but not spectacular Italian food, excellent service. Would definitely go back, and recommend the place to friends and family.

My daughter and her family brought me to Cafe Fiore for dinner. The food was excellent. I had the sesame seed crusted Ahi tuna over asparagus and salad. This was as good or better than any Ahi dish I've had in Hawaii. The rest of my family had gnocchi, eggplant parmigiana, and the kids had pizza. I had the house... More
