While I have my favorite Italian restaurants, this is not one of them. The food is overpriced along with the drinks. While they give you good size portions it doesn't taste like homemade Italian food. Having just spent time in Italy and eaten at many...More

Ok so I went off reviews and I'm very happy I did! We reserved a table and I'm so happy we did. Now we were a bit on the boring side with pizza, salad, and soup but it was very tasty! The waiter was somewhat...More

The waitstaff is excellent here. The food is always top notch. I think the food is overpriced, but you are paying for the ambience.

The food is very solid here. The salads and pasta dishes are especially good. I go there often and have only had one bad experience (some way-too-greasy vegetable tempura which the manager took off the bill). Live music on the weekends, reggae on Sundays in...More

Good food overall, located in downtown ventura, block away from ocean promenade. Music easy listening. My best dish, spaghetti con polpettine

Cafe Fiore is a funky, traditional Italian spot conveniently located in downtown Ventura . The food is average and on the heavy side. Nice staff.

With butter, cream, white bread, cheese, and skilled chefs focused on taste, of course you are going to like it. But they do not have a lot of really healthy options. The two dishes at the bottom of the menu with a "heart" symbol are...More

We stopped here for an afternoon bottle of wine during happy hour. 30% off every bottle was a good deal. We sat outside on the patio which was a little sun trap. We decided to book for dinner and went back later. The place was...More

Yes, there is an outdoor area for eating. It has a clear glass portion on top of a wall to help block the wind off of the water. There are also heaters and a fire pit for those colder evenings. One thing to keep in mind is... More
