The food was Fantastic !!! Ohhh So Yummy!!
Perfect place to get great food in Moorpark that's for sure. Now I don't have to drive to the West Side for an excellent meal.
I'll be trying brunch and lunch also.
Cafe Firenze is great restaurant, and even better that it's in Moorpark. Our foursome had short ribs, sole, a filet mignon, and roast pork, all prepared beautifully and creatively. The salads were delicious too, especially the truffle wedge. Our server was attentive and pleasantly upbeat. Parking is easy, as well. We will be back, to be sure.
I ordered the Shortrib entree and they must have used a meat tenderizer. I was very ill by the time I reached home. With well known chefs I would think that they would not use such chemicals. Service was very good, staff pleasant and friendly. Also had a green salad and Polenta. Overall the food was just poor for the money.
We went for New Years Eve . Fun and Festive. Gave out hats, leas, noise makers and champagne We ordered from regular menus but they had New Year Menue too (it was a little pricey for us at 95 a person)
New Years Eve early dinner. Peter/Waiter excellent, friendly and attentive. My dinner seafood pasta was excellent, light sauce and great crabmeat. Hubby had short ribs -didn't care for sauce, not lot of flavor, but tender. Overall, one of our favorite restaurants. Love Fabio!
It was just okay.... the service great!...the food so so.....when I pay 28 dollars for gnocchi...it should be amazing...it was mushy and not enough flavor.....bread pudding was gelatinous .....a little disappointed
After watching Fabio Viviani cook on Top Chef the Cafe Firenze was a definite food stop in our California trip. His recipes are being executed by John beautifully. The Roasted Chicken was our tables' favorite and was Fabio's secret weapon on the show. I believe it was a grandmother's recipe and it was truly delicious! The pasta dishes were a little AL dente for our taste but the sauces were rich, creamy and right on. The sport ribs were meaty and savory. The pork was cooked perfectly. All in all our meal was quite good and the roasted chicken was worth the drive out to the Simi Valley.
This is our go to nice restaurant for the moorpark area.
We have been coming here for years. Always had a good meal. This week, it felt as though we were a bit rushed and the quality didn't seem as up to par. The plates always look like they are out of a magazine. This time they felt as food was thrown on a plate and sent out.
For five people, we ordered a round if drinks and salads. Then dinner. And after dinner coffee. But, we were done in an hour. Like I said, felt rushed.
But, like I said we have been coming here for years and always had a great meal. The specials are always fantastic.
Not going to let one off night ruin it. We celebrate most birthdays and anniversaries here.
As always, our dining experience was great. Service is prompt and food is great!
We recently had dinner at Cafe Firenze after spending the afternoon at the nearby Reagan Library. The restaurant is very pretty but was a disappointment. We were seated in the “outside” area and were chilly throughout the meal. When we asked for an inside table we we told they were reserved. When I mentioned that we had a reservation they told me I didn’t specifically request an indoor table- although nothing about that was on the website.
The food and service were mediocre- certainly not what we would expect from the top rated restaurant in the area. Our minestrone soup was watery and lukewarm, our pasta undercooked. We would have told this to our waitress but she was nowhere to be found until the end of our meal. She did comp us 2 desserts but we would rather have had a better meal.
