This is a small, intimate restaurant, perfect for a special evening. An extensive menu emphasizing Northern Italian dishes usually with some added specials depending on the season or availability. We had the Bistecca a la Veneziana (filet medallions) with cream peppercorn sauce and the Saltimbocca, divided between us as 2 half portions each. The garlic bread as an appetizer was... More

Very small and intimate. Would not go there without reservations. They have two to three seatings per evening. Depending on size of diners group.

We've been coming to Café Fiore for about 7 years now. The menu is still the same, and the food for the most part is very good. The service is always very attentive and this is one of our favorite restaurants (which we can count on one hand) at South Lake Tahoe. We've tried quite a few items on the... More

By far one of the best ever! Food is always fresh, full of flavor and served by one of the best waitstaff on the planet. If you can, save room for one of their delicious desserts. Outstanding wine list. Be sure to make a reservation.

We made a reservation at this ridiculously small restaurant based on near perfect reviews and unfortunately all four of our family members really did not enjoy our dinner. Calamari was chewy for days. Bread tasted like store bought. Minestrone tasted like from a can. Saltimbocca was tiny and tasteless. Bistecca was also tiny and tasteless. Daughters pasta calabrese was also... More

This is the smallest restraurant I've ever been to... 7 total tables. The staff was incredibly friendly and offered to make our dishes anyway we wanted them. The food was in large portions and really good. Overall, great little place for an intimate dinner.

They called and confirmed our reservation and confirmed we were celebrating my 50th. We got there and the place was small and quaint. Only 7 tables. The restaurant was a... More

This is a small Italian restaurant where everything they serve is homemade. There were three waiters who attend to your every need but not in an intrusive way. There were two couples and the guys had a combination of their filet mignon dish with the veal satimbobcco. My husband couldn't decide between the two entrees so the waiter suggested the... More

We visited on our first night in Tahoe and were very jetlagged and did not have a great appetite. The staff were incredibly sweet as we only ordered 2 starters they split them onto 2 plates and served them separately so that we could have 2 courses and enjoy a light dinner. Sadly the food was not quite what we... More

Yep, we're serious...very serious. A tiny, beautiful, 7 table restaurant hidden off the main road in South Lake Tahoe and an absolute gem. Café Fiore is a delectable eating pleasure house and if your lucky enough to be one of the few each night that gets to eat there then your trip to South Lake Tahoe will be complete. Once... More
