Had another great occasion at Cafe Fiore. From cocktails to dessert, I can count on great service and a superb meal. That's why I'm happy to drive an hour each way for the privilege. The live band featured some amazing musicians playing complex arrangements flawlessly. Can't wait for my next opportunity.

My husband and I were very excited to try this restaurant as it always seems busy, which is a good sign of good food. And it was very good! We shared the large appetizer (I do not remember the Italian name for it) but it had two crab cakes on a bed of cabbage slaw salad, two very large prawns... More

We just got into town and called to see about the wait time. No issue at 8pm. We walked in and they had a high top table or the kitchen counter. Let me tell you the kitchen counter was the best. The cooks enjoyed showing off a little bit. The food was excellent, we had a mahgerita pizza and a... More

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
