This is a nice romantic restaurant for couples and adult friends. Great food and full service bar with live music. Definitely worth a visit to this locals spot.

Somehow the place doesn't quite make it in all categories. The ambiance is nice but the booth seating is uncomfortable, the noise level a little high, and the food-while fresh and abundant-is unremarkable as well as overprices. The wine list is good, the service is very good, but none of these lift your experience into the "gotta go back" category.

Ventura desperately needs more good restaurants. This one is I'd give 3.5 out of 5. We prefer their desserts to their main courses and of course the bread is really good. The main courses just seem to lack a "wow" factor and IMO are over priced for what you get. I recently had a chicken parm salad. Some of the... More

What a wonderful happy hour that includes a fabulous special menu and a great sangria option. The manager Ruthie is the best and always stops by to see how you are. The fried goat cheese balls are delicious! Great ambiance too so its good to meet a friend or a date.

Once a year the family gathers for a holiday celebration. We booked a table at Cafe Fiore and were treated like special guests. It was a chilly night in early December but the heaters were on and comfortable when we arrived to eat on the patio. The waitress was prompt, energetic and gracious. 8 adults and two kids under ten... More

Today, my friend and I walked into Cafe Fiori for happy hour which ends at 5pm on Saturdays. I rushed to get there to make it to their happy hour and I was extremely disappointed when we had to wait 17 minutes just for a waitress to take our order (we wanted to get our order in before 5pm happy...

This is pretty good Italian food, always fresh. The interior has comfy seating. It is a frequented by a younger crowd and sometimes the patio and bar areas and noisy. Reservations accepted though there's sometimes still a wait. Very close to historic Main Street and the Mission.

This is located in downtown Ventura. There is parking on the street and a parking garage. The atmosphere here is very nice. You can dine inside or outside. They have a nice selection on the food and the wine menus. Food was very good. Lots of great shopping in the area.
