we enjoyed excellent pasta dishes and a good bottle of chianti on a Saturday night. The desserts were yummy too. There was friendly service and relaxed atmosphere. Recommended

Best secret in SF!
A great cafe! Charming host, innovative menu, and charming surroundings. Host and owner Eduardo is an extremely friendly native of Naples. The menu exudes his creativity (he built the tables and designed his cafe). We had awesome first courses of mussels in a light olive oil and garlic sauce. The fresh bread allowed us to soak up the sauce. The plate of cheeses and meats was top notch. Loved the piquillo pepper stuffed with leeks and codfish! Fresh morsels of fish tucked inside of a mild pepper coated in an amazingly bright and tasty sauce. Main courses were fabulous. I had the gnocchi special with a light asparagus cream sauce. Loved the pasta dishes, one was with.clamd and mussels, the other with salmon. Shrimp skewers, amazing.

Nice, well priced, good food
Bruschetta was good to start, two pastas both very good: ragu and the penne with broccoli rabe. The dessert was the pudding dish- really rich and creamy. House wines were so so- spring for a bottle instead. It is not a very attractive place- but service was very attentive and prices were very reasonable.

My new favorite place
I just stumbled on this place one day and have been back 3 times in the last month! Great fresh food! The menu far exceeds the simple (but nice) space. I would eat hearing before hitting some of the other Italian place in the mission. No attitude, just great food and a nice Italian wine list!

A clean , decorated place. Superb and friendly service.

Probably the best panna cotta I ever had.

great food, friendly people
i had the linguine allo scogliio, and it was great. my husband had the risotto con radicchio (i think it was part of the specials that night), and he said it was good. he's italian and picky, so i guess it really was. the host was friendly and very accommodating. my friend wasn't feeling well, and almost passed out, and the host graciously let us use another set of chairs for her to lie down on.

I love this find. Been there three times. The owner (from Napoli, Italy) works there and is accessible for convo. Nothing fancy. Just a cozy, very friendly neighborhood place for really, really good food and casual amnbiance. Go.

Good option if you're close by
The food selection was nice, but nothing we had was out-of-this-world. It's a nice neighborhood restaurant that is a perfect option if you live nearby and don't want to go further afoot. Decent wine selection, and everything is reasonably priced.

We had lunch here with a friend visiting from out of town and everything was perfect. The food is fresh and well prepared. All our dishes were excellent and had a "home made" feel that was cozy and delicious, and the plates looked lovely to the eye as well. Our waitress was a sweet, genuine, solicitous person who made us feel welcome and cared for. If you want honest, fresh, farm-to-table food in a bright, clean and welcoming environment, this is an excellent choice.

This place has beautiful wood interiors. The tables are made of wood slabs. It is comfy and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed.
The food is fresh and well prepared. The wine list is well priced and so is the food.

Great Food, hidden gem!
We had a large group (11), but that didn't bother them at all. The food was fantastic and the wine selection plentiful. Everyone commented on how everything - atmosphere, food, drink made for a very enjoyable evening.. Relaxed and comfortable. Highly recommended! Will return here on our next trip.

A surprise gem!
I was looking for a last minute reservation for five people and lucked-out to dine at Caffe Fiore based on the reviews that I read on open table. We had out-of-town guests and needed something easy to get to and also a lovely yet casual dinner among friends. They delivered hands-down with a fantastic waiter, minimally elegant interior, and intimate dining space. On top of all that, the food was great! We'll definitely be going again.

The food here was great! Very reasonable price for the amount for the serving size. The service was a bit slow but besides that I really enjoyed the restaurant and the ambiance.

For an intimate birthday dinner, Caffe Fiore was ideal. Our group of 10 had a nice big wooden table in the front of the restaurant with big windows. The service was flawless, friendly and didn't rush us. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. Everyone had a great time and felt special, just like my birthday in Florence in 1998.

Food was excellent. Service was not the most attentive but generally good. I would certainly return.
