We went for a drink last night and there is a musty smell very noticeable near the bar and front of the restaurant. The drinks and food were good but we left because the smell was very unpleasant. There are concrete floors in the restaurant that look like the sealer has worn off and they have become very dirty over time. Once the sealer is gone the floors absorb everything. To get rid of the odor mop it with soap and bleach in a two bucket system using a clean mop. Bucket 1 hot water, soap and bleach. Bucket 2 hot water and bleach.

Fiore has been struggling since the Lure opened up next door but is still a very nice place. They need to do a "deep cleaning" as the place is beginning to look a little tired. With the "hot" new neighbor next door they need to really work hard to keep themselves up.

Have eaten here a number of times. Nice ambiance! Food is generally good - the cioppino is a favorite. They have an "overflow" dining room which I prefer not to be seated in. They generally have music going on by the bar which is usually too loud for dining.

I thought that their menu was a little limited, but all the food was very good. They had a private room you could get for large groups.

We had the best meal ever on Valentine's Day . We made a reservation for 6 . We took two coupes that are good friends that had not been to this restaurant . Started with martinis they were so good then dinner specials order Steak and shrimp, chicken ravioli,home made lasagna , and a crab noodle dish all were so good deep Italian flavor very tasty and desert Creme Brulee topped with fruit and caramel heart . What a great meal .The personnel very nice helpful and we gave them a good tip for doing so. We will be back even thou we don't live in the area it is worth the drive.Thank you to the staff of the Cafe Fiore.
