The best spicy pasta.
Everything we have ordered has been fantastic.
The creamy pesto gnocchi (not on the menu, but can be special ordered) is my absolute favorite! It is to die for and one of the main reasons I keep going back! I love Cafe Fiore and have celebrated many milestones there over the years - it is my favorite 'special occasion' restaurant in Ventura and I always take friends and visitors there. The gnocchi is always cooked perfectly and I can't get enough of that creamy pesto sauce!
1hour drive and worth every mile.
Cafe Fiore is one of our favorite restaurants in the county. We love the risotto tartufato with savory sliced filet over creamy risotto. My absolute favorite sangria anywhere is at Cafe Fiore. I order it every single time.
This Tortellaci is the best thing on the menu. The butternut squash filling is like velvet and the I literally lick the plate clean of the sage Parmesan sauce. Everyone in my household agrees that it's the best thing they've ever eaten.
I've loved everything I've ordered from Cafe Fiore but the butternut squash pasta is by far my favorite. It delicious and creamy, the best butternut squash tortellini I've ever had! They also have a great happy hour, lots of choices and yummy pizzas on the happy hour menu.
This is a perfect pizza to go with a nice glass of vino (especially when the bartender Derek is serving it 🔥). Love love love this place and the hot bartender... well that's just an added bonus. 😊👍🏻👍🏻
I love Cafe Fiore! My family and I have been eating there for many years. The two sisters who own Cafe Fiore are very friendly and it seems to have trickled down to all the servers. The servers and other help are always in a great mood so I can tell they enjoy working there. Cafe Fiore's bartenders are the best in Ventura. The martinis are the best I have found. And Happy Hour price for a martini is only $5. Pizzas have the best falvor in town. Gene Rubin
The best pesto I have had in a while! Can't wait to go back and eat again! Also this is a nice spot for a special occasion like an anniversary :)
My favorite is an fettuccini Alfredo pasta with sausage!
Café Fiore is always the most consistent and has the most delicious food! They have weekly specials that we always enjoy and we also have some of our favorites.
Is our absolute favorite restaurant in all of Ventura and Oxnard. We absolutely love everything about it
This is my favorite in the menu! Tuna is perfect with asparagus and mixed greens. So flavorful and juicy! It will make your Mouth watery just savoring the delicious taste!
Cafe Fiore was a delight. My girlfriend and I went out for a bite to eat and stumbled in quite accidentally. Lucky us! The food was amazing and though it wasn't cheap, it all seemed worth it when we considered the stellar service and warm, lively environment. I would recommend checking out this unique spot as soon as you can.
I'm in love with the Tortellacci di zucca! Totally sumptuous and rich! And even work when ordered as a catered item! Highly recommend!
The Bon Bon is my absolute favorite dessert at the best restaurant in Ventura!! The mint ice cream is filled with chunks of chocolate. Then dipped to perfection in chocolate. It is a unique take on a classic frozen treat..
Best in Ventura! What an amazing restaurant! The service and the atmosphere are amazing and the food is absolutely delicious. Good music and good people, often! Highly recommend!!
This dish makes my mouth water every time I think of it. It's the perfect combination of butter, garlic, mushrooms, and Filet complimented by arugula tossed with perfectly al dente pasta... oh and I almost forgot the topper TRUFFLE oil. If you want a filling dish, while still being extra classy this is your new jam!
I'm a super picky risotto lover and most restaurants get it completely wrong. This dish was perfectly prepared and had plenty of chicken and mushrooms cooked in. It was absolutely delicious and cooked exactly like I wanted. This will be a regular dinner spot for us, and a perfect find as we just moved here to Ventura!
What can I say? it had everything you would expect in a dish! A full-on meal!! Please don't get rid of this. Bellissimo!!!
I love everything I have tried at Cafe Fiore but my favorite dish is Stinco Di Agnello. The lamb literally falls off the bone and is full of flavor. The best part about the dish is the bed of gnocchi the lamb sits on. The gnocchi is bursting with flavor and melts in ones mouth. Soooo delicious!! If you haven't tried this dish, it's a must! You won't regret it :)
It was wonderful
The thing about Cafe Fiore is that I'm NEVER disappointed! While I love being able to have the Osso Buco Con Risotto, which is amazing!!! I also LOVE getting whatever is on the special menu for dinner, usually a wonderful salad to which I also add a lamb chop or two. Their chef is never short of creating amazing specials combinations, which they pair with wines. I also LOVE having happy hour at Fiore, as I can have a Pear Lavender Martini with chicken legs and a wedge salad, or some meatballs in polenta... or ahi avocado stack! YUM! Cafe Fiori is an amazing place for a romantic dinner with a loved one, a business meeting, or just a place to hang out with friends. Not all restaurants are as versatile as Fiore, which is what makes it so special, and a go to for my personal dining out experience, or a great recommendation for out of town friends!
We got the family meal to go and it was delicious and exactly what we wanted during quarantine! The gnocchi was like soft pillows of deliciousness that melts in your mouth. Would definitely recommend and Love to support a local business.
This is the bomb!!!!!! The gift that keeps giving!! Great forest time around and great the second time around! The sauce is on point!
Food is the best ambassador so when I was young I learned that there were certain families in the neighborhood that ate like royalty, in very modest settings. A friend of mine had an Italian mother who made the most amazing Gnocchi and sadly when she was lost to us I thought my favorite dish would never be as good, Fiore proved me wrong and I cannot get enough!
Best food and best service ever! Maria, Bill and Lo are the most wonderful family! Please support local businesses!
My family, namely my sisters and I I've been frequenting Café Fiore for quite a long time. We moved to Ventura County in 1964 and this is one of our favorite places. The food is consistently delicious, priced appropriately, the music is great, bartenders and servers are top notch. This is an awesome place to meet people, have good food and drinks and a great evening. Good for lunch too!
Delicious variety of salami and cheese. The fresh made focaccia is the bomb! This could be a meal in itself for me.
Delivered by DoorDash today. Worst pizza ever. Totally burned crust? I called restaurant to complain and was told they reviewed the pizza before it went out. Seriously? If they let this pizza pass, there is a real quality problem. I was told that I needed to contact Door Dash for them to deliver another pizza. I emailed them, but got no reply. I am fuming!
I have visited Cafe Fiore yet again and yet again loved it! Their service was great, the environment is relaxing yet entertaining and the food was amazing. I have to recommend the Calamari. It was crisp, fresh and delicious. This spot is perfect for a casual lunch and a first date alike. The food covers a wide array of styles while remaining within the scrumptious confines of the Italian way. I will be back to Cafe Fiore again soon.
Discovered this place as I walked downtown. decided to walk in and check it out. sat down order some drinks and order dinner. love the environment and atmosphere. food was delicious and just right. definitely a great place to come have a good time and enjoy a good meal.
Everything at Cafe Fiore is top class. Love the music and the beautiful venue!
Delicious food 😀
This was one of the best carpaccios I've ever had! The portion and accompaniments were spot on!
This dish is absolutely amazing and hits the spot. The traditional pot is super cute and makes the dish complete.
I love having dinner there when they have the Jazz Heads Band playing, it creates a great environment.
Wonderful dinner for 2 only $55.00 ! Tomahawk steak with Bok choy and scallop potatoes !! Never had Bok choy before, it's really good with the butter sauce . They had it on there special , We got lucky they were on there 3 week for this special ! We will get it again next time they have it !
