Every time we go to Ventura we are always on the hunt for the next best restaurant but find ourselves always back at Cafe Fiore. They have an awesome menu, cozy seating and our favorite wines always in stock. We have an addition to our little cutting horse family - Meet Kat. I am sure she will be featured on my blog often.
Every good Italian meal start with bread and wine. This was a bottle of Greg Norman Pinot Noir. A very tasty and affordable bottle.
Scott ordered the pasta special featuring a cream sauce with figs and walnuts. They were very generous with the toppings!
I have ordered this dish here every time I have dined here. Tortellaci di Zucca - Butternut squash filled pasta in a sage cream sauce! Heaven. Absolutely a must order!
Kat ordered off the new "Spa" Menu which was a whole list of healthy entrees. I believe hers was a whole wheat pasta, pesto and chicken dish. She loved it and and finished every last drop.
Cafe Fiore is always good. Plain and simple. Hit the outdoor bar for music on Sundays - lots of dancing and fun!
