We had a wonderful experience. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. The dishes were made with fresh ingredients and the clientele were sensitive to surrounding tables no loud guests.
We will be back

A good night with friends for a birthday. Food was tasty. Service was decent and pricing as well. I would definitely return and would file this under “low key neighborhood dinner”.

The four of us all liked our dishes (3 of their pasta dishes, one delicious appetizer) very much. The service was friendly and efficient. The atmosphere is very pleasant, but tables are close together, and when you have loud neighbors, that might make conversation among 4 a little difficult. (We had a much better time when the neighboring table left.) Didn't try the dessert for lack of time, but will next time.

This neighborhood gem is more than just a caffe -- the menu is comprehensive, with at least two specials each day. Everything is made to order and served by a charming waitstaff. Excellent wine list. Fabulous desserts. Go there, just do it!

I've waited to write this review, thinking that perhaps I should not. But the utter misery of my last visit here requires a review. I've dined here three times. Each time, my entree was the pan-seared skirt steak cutlets. The first dining experience was with a friend - the food was outstanding, the presentation was outstanding, and the service was outstanding. I even recommended the restaurant to friends, and they had good experience there. The second time was dining alone - the food was OK, the service was less than mediocore. The third time, I was taking a friend out for a birthday celebration, the service was abominable and the skirt steak so rancid tasting, that I can still sense the horrible taste in my mouth. In addition, we had ordered, as usual, six crostini, which never came. When the entrees came, I asked the maitre d cum waiter what happened to the crostini and he did not remember taking the order. He then just threw the crostini menu on the table without apology. We had also ordered two antipasti, the Baked Radicchio & Pear Wrapped in Prosciutto, Topped with Arugula & Goat Cheese and Parma Prosciutto, Salame, Porchetta, Gorgonzola, Parmigiano & Castelvetrano Olives- they both arrived in two large mounds that lacked even the presentation that one can find in an army mess hall. I have never had meat that tasted as bed as the skirt steak. As it was my friend's birthday dinner, and he did not want a fuss, I did not complain at the time and the maitre d' cum waiter, apparently did not care to address any problems. I think this was the most horrible dining experience in my life.

Felt family owned and personal in that way. The prices were very reasonable. The pacing of the service was quite relaxed which gave ample time for conversation without interruption. It was quiet even when the restaurant got more crowded so we didn't have to yell across the table as one must in so many restaurants. The only thing I would change is I would have turned the heat up. It was a little chilly so that my partner never took off her coat. There's a fireplace that doesn't appear to work. Get that working and I'd be back weekly!

Excellent local restaurant. The house made pastas and cannoli are fantastic. The crostini menu would be fun to have just with that and a bottle of wine. Friendly service good food. Everything you could want from a local spot.

We went here for dinner and had a wonderful meal, truly some of the best pasta I've had in ages, and I live right by Flour + Water). But the place has zero ambience at night--bright lights, quiet music. (I actually got up and dimmed the lights in our section to my friends' delight.) They've got the food down. If they can figure the other bit out this lovely little restaurant could be a real gem. Maybe it is during the day. I just wouldn't recommend it for dinner, if you like a ambience with your tortellini like I do.

You will receive very bad service here. The waiter is extremely rude and brought us drinks nicely, but we had to grab his attention after waiting a while to get our food order. When he gave us a drink, which didn’t turn out the way we thought it would be, we nicely asked him to please change it for another one and he brought us some different wine without asking us what we wanted very rudely. We had to wait a very long time for the food to arrive and then as we were leaving he said some very rude words.

Loved Fiore. Tasty pasta, I had the special, mussels with tomatoes and a little spice. Fresh pasta, really good. Not too busy at 6, but got busier. We could hear ourselves speak. Great neighborhood gem. Good value too.

The food was really excellent and unlike some other SF eateries who are skimpy with the food, they are generous with their servings. Overall just a very pleasant surprise.
