An amazing Italian gem. You
An amazing Italian gem. You don't have to go to Italy to enjoy good Italian food, it is right in your back yard. They really understand the essence of Italian food. The best Italian restaurant in LA (and we have been to almost all of the good ones here and also been to Italy). Go and enjoy !!

The food here is fabulous, some of the best Italian in the area. Service is a little slow, but not slow enough to resist going regularly. It is a gem that is hidden in an office building, but you would never know by the ambiance within the restaurant. It has more of a European feel, than of a typical American restaurant. Yummy, Yummy, Yummy.

We enjoy coming regularly
We enjoy coming regularly to Cafe Fiore. We had a great dinner on Saturday nite. Our waiter was Shohab who we have had on numerous occasions. He treated us very well, very attentive, made some great recommendations. We continue to enjoy Cafe Fiore and will keep coming back!!!!

This is a great restaurant hidden in a office park. I've driven by 100 times and never knew it was there.
All the dishes came out looking wonderful. Chicken was tasty. Cioppino was delicious. The Chicken Salad was a bit bland and stingy on chicken.
And the bread - addicting.
We'll go back for sure.

The food was good and the
The food was good and the house Chianti was very nice. My only complaint was our waiter. He did his job, but did not have the tack to see we may be speaking and was very interruptive. He appeared to be in a great hurry. At one point when my mother was trying to give him her drink order he walked away while she was in mid sentence to go to a more lucrative table. I may give the place another chance to see if it was just a off night.

Food is really deelish! Ambiance is really nice with live music! Martinis are outstanding with great twists! Menu is a little pricey for just a casual dinner out , but overall a nice restaurant . One disappointment was they didn't have any breadpudding for desert which Was on the menu and was everyones all time fav, but we still had a nice time .

I go to Café Fiore for lunch
I go to Café Fiore for lunch and business meetings a lot, sometimes several times a week. I have always enjoyed their food, excellent service and general feel. I have also stopped in for dinner and again the food is always excellent and the service has never let me down. Excellent place for a nice bite and a great atmosphere.

As good as it gets!
This is as close to Itlay eating as you can get without the long flight! Everything here is fantastic! The atmosphere, the staff and the food is worth talking about to anyone who will listen. Have been here several times and have referred a lot of friends and customers and they all thank me for such a wonderful foodie find. Thanks Cafe Fiore for making such great food and not at rip off prices!

Finally an Italian restaurant where the waiter is Italian. Beautiful presentation on the burrata with bietola. Special of the week pasta with calamari was fantastic. As we were leaving I was looking for the hostess to validate my parking and a very friendly guy with his family who was entering the restaurant took my ticket and stamped it. Obviously he was a regular but it's that friendly kind of place that gives this charm and authenticity. Looking forward to returning when I am in the area again.

Fine Italian Restaurant
We like this restaurant as well as its companion in Ventura for the excellent pastas that we tend to order for entrees. This time I had a ravioli like pasta stuffed with lobster--great!, and my wife a squash tottelli which she enjoyed. I had a very good creamy fish soup to start with and my wife a burrata caprese that she liked. Very good service and we enjoyed our dinner here.

Fine Italian Food in the Valley
We had a fine Saturday dinner here with a very tasty fish soup for myself to start and my wife having the caprese which she enjoyed. My pasta entrée of a ravioli like pasta stuffed with lobster was excellent and I can recommend it, with my wife having a squash tortellini which was tasty. Good cocktails, too. Our server was excellent and very attentive. All in all, a very enjoyable dinner.

I/We loved Cafe Fiore! It was our first visit and they did such a great job on everything. Mara was terrific and the food was fabulous. We ordered the Sausage pizza and had Carpaccio/Cesar Salad appetizers. We finished up with a sundae that was to die for! Mara asked if we would like her to call the car which was a terrific surprize as usually wating for it is a bit of a chore.
Looking forward to returning soon for some fabuluous pasta!
Thanks to all!

Fresh and seasonal
Not just a typical Italian restaurant, despite location near the Topanga Canyon Mall. I ordered off of the specials menu, and received a fresh, seasonal salad with stone fruit, fresh greens, ricotta salada, and a light dressing. It was light and delicious. Prior to our meal, we were served fresh focaccia-like bread with a light tomato-based tapenade, which was warm and delicious. I would recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for something different than the typical, heavily sauced Italian-fare.

a gem in Woodland Hills
Great food. Great ambiance. What a fun dining experience.

Great new find!!!
Food and service are excellent. I met a friend for dinner at Café Fiore and was seated promptly despite my having gotten there first. I requested outdoor seating and got a very nice table with an equally attentive server. While other restaurants have the waiters always try to rush the diner to order, I was left to enjoy the outdoor ambiance while waiting for my friend.
The waiter offered to bring me some warm bread while waiting, and that was so tasty. It's a puffy, warm bread - so delicious I would have have consumed several pieces. Pasta was delicious and tiramisu was scrumptious.
Definitely recommend this place.

Italian Food Done Right
We live close by and decided to pop in for dinner. This was not our first time at Cafe Fiore. But I decided considering the last 3 times we've been there the food and service have been top notch. The food is unmatched. If you are looking for italian done right this is the place you want to be.

Date Night Destination
This was our second time dining at Cafe Fiore. It's a great place to dine with friends or just the two of you.
Highlights: Red Sangria, Chicken, pasta. Less impressive was the Salmon and Char - two fish that were fairly tasteless.
Service was just ok. Our waitress was WAY more concerned with our drink orders than she was about our food.
We'll definitely go back to try more dishes, especially more pastas.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
we greatly enjoyed
squash tortellaci and gnocchi at an outside table and were able to relax, enjoy conversation with the great food.
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
I find most everything on their menu delicious. But, I love their pastas the most.Their Spinach Gnocchi in Gorgonzola/Tomato Cream Sauce is to die for! The BEST I have ever had! I dream about it! Highly recommend this restaurant for its cool atmosphere, yummy food and great service in both restaurant and bar!

Very Good THIS TIME
This time service was great. Bar is always great when Philip is bartender. Only complaints are the constantly run out of one dish or another even specials and food service can be very inconsistent and long waits after ordering.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
We sat outside because there
We sat outside because there was a band inside. I was very impressed with the outdoor decor. The food was amazing and the restaurant is kid friendly. I was very happy to find such a great place close to where I live.

Nice, like Ventura location better
When I saw my favorite Italian restaurant in Ventura had a location much closer to my home I was thrilled. While the menu is slightly different at the Woodland Hills location, the food was OK. The service was outstanding and the bread with the dipping sauce is out of this world!
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
The bruschetta was fresh and the tastiest bruschetta I have had in a long time.
The grilled salmon over the mound of healthy salad was delicious and plentiful, cooked just right.
My coworker's Parmigian chicken sandwich was so yummy, as well as the huge potato chips. Again, a large portion, which I love.
The service was great and the place is beautiful. I used to go to the prior restasurant at this location, and it was not only ugly, the food was mediocre at best.
Thank you Café Fiore !

Good First Experience
This was my first time going to Cafe Fiore. We arrived on time and were greeted by a friendly face. At the last minute, we requested the patio and it was not a problem at all. We were seated quickly, the server was there offering drinks. We ordered and received our meals quick. Our table was attended to well (refills on drinks, finished dishes removed).
I look forward to going there again...and again....,.and again...... :)

What a pleasant surprise!
Food was excellent and service friendly and welcoming. The Antipasti Fiore Appetizer has a geat selection of meats and cheeses and is huge. The wild boar on creamy risotto was to die for! The White Sea Bass special was light and tasty. Creme Brulee was not overly sweet. The house chardonnyy is a bit tart to my taste so go for the Wente which was very good. The Patio has cabana style booths and some smaller tables and is definitely more romantic than being inside. Convenient valet service right outside the door makes it easy to park in the evening. I was there on a Saturday night and the atmosphere was relaxing and pleasant with the waiters all very friendly. Where it really shined was the quality and taste of the food.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sat outside and it was really pleasant...could have a conversation with our friends. Service was exceptional. Our waitor was very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list and it was obvious that he really cared about doing his job well and making us happy.
The appetizer th at had the word trio in it is fanatastic. I ate it a entree. The specials were creative. The puffy bread is great.
Above all they really seem to care about their food, their clients, their service.
I really want to support this restaurant.

The food was excellent. Tried several items and all were delicious. The Martini's are excellent too. Overall a great place

Great food and nice people but...
This was our 2nd trip to Cafe Fiore. Food was pretty darn good both times. Ambiance and light level are great, very quiet (outside) and relaxing. The only problem is service. We like to take our time, not open a menu for a few minutes, relax...but seriously, we shouldn't have to sit there for 10 minutes and wait for someone to greet us and take a drink order after we're seated. That happened both times we were there and I'm not quite sure why it happens. Maybe it was because we sat outside both times. We really like this place, food is good, kids love it, staff is REALLY friendly. Will definitely go back, but I hope they can fix this one small issue. Definitely worth a visit.

Outstanding Italian Restaurant
I have dined at Cafe Fiore twice and it has just been outstanding. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants the finest Italian food in a rustic, warm & welcoming setting. I look forward to returning soon.

GREAT FOOD, NICE AMBIENCE
This is a neighborhood restaurant which has great, different and distinct Italian food. The fare is delicious, there is an outside (covered in winter) patio which we favor (it's a bit quieter for talking), the service is wonderful and we never feel hurried, either to order or to leave. On the weekends there is live music, too.

Family night out
This was our second time at Cafe Fiore and we were not disappointed. The food is very good with some nice specials. The place was very busy but the staff had things under control. The band was excellent! We were seated in a Cabana which suited our needs perfectly.
We will be back.
