    I was excited to try this restaurant, but walked away disappointed. The place was incredibly loud -- so loud I had to shout at my date across our 2-top. Also, we were seated against the wall, and too close to the next table. A little space would have been nice. The food was ok. We ordered the caprese salad (fresh mozz with basil and tomato), but the tomato was under-ripe and flavorless. I understand they were probably out of season, but wouldn't the chef know that? And wouldn't s/he then take it off the menu instead of feeding diners flavorless food? One would hope. I got the gnocchi (too rich). Wait staff was friendly but slammed and slow. Again, one would hope the management would adequately staff the place on a Saturday night....

    I recently went to Caffe Fiore with one friend; we had an 8 pm reservation on a Saturday night. We were seated promptly, and the staff and owners are friendly. However, the noise level throughout the entire restaurant (which was pretty full when we got there) was simply unacceptable. My friend and I each had to lean across our tiny table and almost touch foreheads for us to hear each other at all. And, even as parties left and the restaurant became a little less crowded, the noise level did not abate. The food is reasonably priced and fresh, but is nothing special. But really, it was the noise level that impaired the dining experience for us. If you want to try Caffe Fiore, try to go when it is not likely to be very busy.

    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.

    After reading the positive reviews, and the fact that it received a Diners Choice Award, I was expecting a lot more. All in all I found the food to be quite bland. For starters we had the Arancini and Insalata di mare, who doesn't love a fried ball of goodness, however again I found both to be bland and the Arancini too large on the plate in my opinion. They should take a clue from Delfina pizzeria, who makes great Arancini! My main was the Cotoletta Di Maiale (breaded pork loin), it was crispy on the edges but under cooked in the center It was obviously our servers first night, so I'll give her a break as she was navigating a new job. She did make an excellent wine recommendation, which was the highlight of the meal.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Our group of eight were made to feel welcome without overdoing it. We were a little late due to traffic but that was never mentioned. The wine list was comprehensive and they had a nice selection of appetizers. We lingered quite a while in the restaurant and we never felt pressured to leave. I liked the art work on the walls and the overall casual atmosphere. This is a great neighborhood restaurant and everyone enjoyed their food.

The food was great, service for a large group was quick and efficient and friendly. We'd definitely return for smaller and larger parties.

    It was my second time at Fiore caffe for dinner. Again had a great dinner at a decent price. The special was hand made pappardelle with a chunky ragu sauce. It w perfect for a cold rainy night. The waiter suggested to pair with a glass of Aglianico which was excellent. Can' t wait to take my Italian friends. Also they serve great Italian coffee in the morning.

    Many thanks to the staff at Caffe Fiore for accommodating our ever increasing group on a busy Saturday night, all the way up to closing time. Service, food and wine list were great. Our group especially enjoyed the dozen different varieties of crostini and the pappardelle; I hated to share my orriciette which was served with a pleasantly spicy olive oil/broccoli rabe. Had one of each dessert - all pretty good, but the panna cotta was remarkable. Yum!

Not the place where you would invite people to impress. They have beer and wine too. Expresso is really good (as good as in Barcelona or Napoli).
