    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "I have been here a few times, I ask myself why I wait so log between trips. Pasta, fish or you name it, it's always a great experience. Not to mention the best food ever."

  • "This restaurant is a place for special occasions. It is a little pricy but the food id great and the service exceptional."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "The short ribs, short rib ravioli and tortellaci are always great. The special for this day was rack of lamb. It was a bit tough and not up to the usual standard. This is the first meal that I have had any complaint with. If they are offering the beef cheeks special, try it. It is absolutely fantastic. We always enjoy the wonderful service. They are attentive but not overbearing."

  • "We went to celebrate our anniversary. The staff was friendly, attentive, fun and efficient. The chicken scaloppine was very good. We tried the balsamic martini for the first time. It was fantastic. We were very happy we decided to visit Cafe Firenze for our anniversary celebration."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Our party of 4 could NOT have been more pleased. Service was attentive, the server was charming and knowledgable, and the food was spot on. We offered a taste of wine to Chef and he took the time to visit our table, which made for a real nice touch. The 3 things all restaurants want to hear are: that was great, we'll be back, and we'll tell all our friends!"

  • "I came here a year ago and was disappointed by the entree I selected. The menu description didn't match the presentation. Last night I made a change in the pasta and was so happy with the result. My Fettuccine with chicken and sun dried tomato was AMAZING!! The menu calls for Fusilli, which I don't care for. Easy substitute equals an amazing dish. more than that, every dish at the table was awesome!!! Thank you for making my Mother's birthday dinner the best it could be."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Girls birthday night out, excellent food, and service, love the gnocchi with sausage! Corkage fee is high in my opinion ($20) but maybe it's the going rate nowadays!"
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "Have dined here 5 times - and we are from out of town - and always pleased with our meals. This time we tried the steaks and ate the pasta as a shared side dish, a wonderful way not to overeat on pasta. Our favorites of the meat dishes was the Osso Buco and the pork rolls. This is not your average Italian restaurant! It's fine dining even if you just order flatbread."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "My husband and I dined here Sat. March 8, 2014. I had the sole, which was flavorful and perfectly cooked. My husband had the chicken marshals and didn't leave a scrap on the plate. He also had a mojito, which was both fresh and strong. We made a reservation and were seated immediately. We chose to sit on the patio."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Took at least 20 mins for the wait staff to ask if we wanted a cocktail. Good was not very good. I had the sea bass. Will check this restuarant off my list of places to go."
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "Delicious homemade pasta dishes, especially the butternut squash and short rib raviolis. Interesting and tasty cocktails, too!"
    Dined on 7/10/2013
  • "This place is great. I would definitely go back. The food was creative and delicious, and I don't think I've ever had faster service. We sat at the kitchen counter and it was like watching Top Chef; they were going so fast they were making us tired just watching! Service was very friendly and attentive. Our server recommended a bottle of pinot noir to go with my filet of sole AND his filet mignon. The pairing was completely on point. It was very expensive of course, I think our bill came to about $150 before tip, but totally worth it! If you can afford it I say go for it. You won't be disappointed."

  • "Good food, dining areas can be a bit loud, but also had live music so added to noise level. would have liked a starch to come with tagliani, but i could have ordered one..."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "My husband and I are both of Italian decent, and have been searching for a good neighborhood Italian restaurant for years. We came across Cafe Firenze quite by accident. Needless to say we were more than pleasantly surprised. We shared the antipasta platter which was excellent. I had the cioppino, which was superior to any that I have ever had. Also, my husband had pasta and meatballs, and enjoyed it tremendously. "Like momma made" was his comment. The wine was good and the ambience was very dark , but pleasantly so. The only downside, if I were to choose, was the lemoncella ricotta cheesecake. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone."

  • "Brought my girlfriend here for her birthday and we had amazing martini's & dinner! We had the short rib Ravioli's and the Butternut Squash Raviolis and shared, both were delicious! There was great live music playing and the Italian waiter just added to the great ambiance. I highly recommend Café Firenze."

  • "We had to reschedule our reservations due to a family illness so we chose the day after Valentine's Day and it had a limited menu. If I had known it had a limited/pricier menu, I would have chosen a different day."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "This is my fourth visit. A previous visit my group had the chef's menu. He sent out five courses paired with wine or martinis. Great way to dine with friends! Great service, ambiance, food and a duo providing entertainment in the backround. I will visit often."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Our waiter was slow, inattentive & it nearly ruined the evening. There was 12 of us, but that was no surprise to the restaurant nor the waiter who knew he was already getting 18%. Had he been good, we would have been happy to tip more. We waited forever for cocktails. We were not asked if we wanted more drinks. We all wanted wine or second cocktail with our dinners. Most if us were very unhappy with meals. We had all eaten there before, so were surprised food wasn't better. We had to ask bus boy to find our waiter two times. When dinner was over, we brought the bill to him!! Overall we were all very disappointed."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "UNFORTUNATELY OUR SAN VALENTINE'S DAY (ROMANTIC) DINNER WAS NOT AS GOOD AS WE EXPECTED. OUR TABLE WAS NEXT TO A FAMILY PARTY WHERE PEOPLE WALKING AROUND OUR TABLE (TOO NOICED). WE WERE RUSHED TO ORDER AND FOOD (CESAR SALD WAS PLAINED NO FAVOR). TO END THE SAD STORY $120.00 IN 20 MIN. FOR A PASTA AND A BOTTLE OF WINE. TOO BAD !!! YOUR RESTAURANT WAS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED AND THAT IS WHY WE WENT. OUR EXPERIENCE WAS POOR. I WILL NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE OR EVER COME BACK AGAIN !!"

  • "...every time we come here. Appreciate the food that the staff and Chef John for the wonderful and tastiest food in the area. We always look forward to sitting in kitchen area even though it's difficult to reserve now. Best experience there and highly recommend it! It's truly a hidden gem in Moorpark. Service is professional and inviting All the servers, hostesses, & bus boys are top notch."

  • "This has been my 3rd time dining at Cafe Firenze. I have never been disappointed. I made reservations for valentine's day. I saw they were offering a Prix Fixe menu that night or the limited selections from the regular menu. I went for the Prix Fixe and was excited to try it. I am so glad I did. Everything all 4 courses were AMAZING. The Martinis are great too. Give the balsamic a try."

  • "Firenze's food was very good, but the portions were small for the price."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "We had a wonderful dinner. The service was exceptional. Never once had to as for refill on drinks, always came before I needed to ask. The presentation of the food was georgous and VERY appealing! They went way out of their way to make the evening enjoyable for us."

  • "We have been searching for a spot to have our son's wedding rehearsal dinner and ran across Café Firenze. We met with the Event Coordinator, Adam a few weeks ago and knew we had to return for dinner. The service was perfect, not invasive but attentive. The menu was outstanding and when our server mentioned the specials, we felt none could compare to the menu. The table had the short ribs, truffle gnocchi, pork chop and the osso buco. Every dish outstanding. I want to go back and have dinner at the Chef's Table. A great trip and of course we are having the rehearsal dinner there. Cant wait to wow our guests!"

  • "I almost never write reviews but this restaurant was fantastic. The food was unbelievable. We had different kinds of steaks, chicken, many appetizers and desserts. All were so good!!! And the service was the best I have ever seen. Ross was our waiter and he was amazing. The manager was AWESOME! The other servers came over to talk to us and they were all great. We even learned how to properly tie a napkin into a fancy design from one of the servers! We loved this place and, even though it is 40 miles from home, we will definitely go back!!!"

  • "Awesome 30 day dry aged ribeye, pricey but worth it. Food is always exceptional, great presentation. We like setting in the Kitchen which is busy and robust, but you get great service from a very well trained wait staff. Wife enjoys their fish and has never been the least dissapointed and she is hard to please. The burata salad is awesome and more than enough to split. Minestrone Soup is the best, I wanted to take more home with me! We look forward to eatting here time and again."

  • "A little better than good, food service was very good, food was 6 of 10."

  • "Although I was concerned when they sat us on the patio, at first it was way too quiet but then when other guests arrived it was fine. Love sitting by fire pit. My favorite is to sit inside though. I would love to see more of that ambience on the patio. I would suggest changing the chairs, not real comfy. But overall an enjoyable night, good food and martins the best!!"

  • "Booked Cafe Firenze for my birthday dinner (been here many times). When we arrived they put us out on the heated patio that was still cold. Moved us inside to where the servers were in and out of the kitchen. Had to ask for specials, had to ask for bread, had to ask to order. I ordered the short rib with polenta. The dish was very good however there was a dab of polenta and big piece of short rib....I would suggest an equal amount of items on the plate so that you don't feel like all you are eating is meat. It is a 20 minute drive for us to visit this restaurant and I don't think we will be eating here again. Just wasn't up to par and I felt the staff didn't really care that we were disappointed."

  • "We dined at Cafe Firenze with a party of 10. The atmosphere is nice, some of the food was great while other items were just good. Our server, Justin, was really horrible. He would disappear for long periods of time and did not bother checking on how were were doing or our food even ONE time. We had to ask the bus boy to track him down and he thought it would be funny to joke with us that he'd been trying to neglect us. We were not amused. Clearly, since we were a large party, he considered his tip to be "in the bag". We even mentioned it to a hostess when we left cause it was really horrific service but she did not seem very concerned. We will never dine here with a large party again and probably not even with a smaller group for some time."

  • "Service was terrific. All special requests were met. Seating was adjusted to be closer to heater and firepit which was great. The food was delicious. All four in our group really enjoyed their entrees."

  • "Service, food, all was excellent. It a great place for taking the wife out. It was out of my budget to bring the kids etc. but my budget is not your budget so it is relative on that score. We really enjoyed our drink which was some basalmic thing, sorry, the flat bread appetizer was fantastic as was my gnocchi. Wife was so so on lobster pasta special. Service really stood out."

  • "Had dinner for my second anniversary here. They were very accommodating even though we were 20 minutes late for our reservation. Crab Cakes were an excellent appetizer. My wife thought the Filet Mignon was exceptional and I enjoyed the Chicken Marsala. Desserts were also great. Highly recommend for a night out."
