We had the whole covered outdoor patio to ourselves. They laced the patio enclosed site with lights. It was great! It does get chilly at night. They had heating lamps, and a huge open charcoal pit. The food was delicious. The salad (greens, figs, sweetened walnuts (?), blue cheese (?) was the first to go. 😄

Awesome food, great ambiance but minimum vegetarian food selection. Wine selection is awesome and so are their desserts. They even have cooking classes along with wine tasting. People who eat meat have only raved about this place.

We love this restaurant. You will completely enjoy the food, service, and dessert (especially the gelato!) It's cafe style with small tables and space, but you feel comfortable and it's very clean. It has a social feel.

The rooms are a bit dark but they serve terrific food -- you can tell the chefs take pride in their creations; makes me want to order everything at least once. Excellent service. And a small but significant item -- the bread is the best I've ever had.

I have been going to Café Firenze since its opening, and the quality keeps getting better, under the eye of Fabio Viviani and his amazing Chef, John Paolone. The regular menu is solid--an upscale take on authentic Italian. But look beyond the menu for the real reason to come here---the daily specials. They are imaginative without being overly fussy or...

The Cafe Firenze experience is absolutely amazing, especially when one considers that Moorpark, California is a city of around 35,000 people. The food is exceptional; the environment is what one would expect in an upscale area of L.A. Shoot, this is almost worth the drive from LAX! As it is, I would recommend a visit to the fantastic Regan (Presidential)... More

Good food any day. Great food if Fabio is in town and cooking, there IS a difference. I've had phenominal pasta dishes, pizza, and drinks. Then I've also had burnt pizza, & watered down drink specials. The place is usually crowded, a smidge over priced, but also usually a good experience.

Had dinner here with friends and really enjoyed the meal and the experience. The bread for starters was amazing, fresh and hot. Service was quite good and attentive without being overbearing. I recommend this place and I would eat here again!

Not bad today. Allot of times its soso. Inconsistent. But tonight it was very good. As long as they are doing good it's a great place. Tonight they get dessert from us. Which means a great dinner

Try to catch this place during happy hour. And you won't pay two arms and two legs for dinner. They have delicious cocktails – the best of which being the raspberry lemon drop. It has yummy chunks of fresh raspberry in it! Their gnocchi is to die for, and most things on their happy hour menu are fantastic!
