Surprisingly cool! Very much a tasty italian kitchen...pizza was perfect! Wine selection very nice. We happened to be there when the band set up, didn't realize there was music at this place. Family friendly but also a cool hang spot for lunch meeting or drinks after work.
We had dinner there the other evening and it was fabulous!!! Finally the valley has a cool place to go, great food, a beautiful outdoor patio and entertainment after dinner. We actually went to the bar and danced our little feet off until 11:00. When you go, sit on the patio, bring your own wine and order the whole chicken with the Balsamic reduction. It is large enough for two people to share it is a whopping 16.00! Really? I can't say enough good things about it, from the delicious pizza to the yummy desserts. Just go, you won't be disappointed.
Big fan of Cafe Fiore in Ventura and now Woodland Hills. Finally a cool place with excellent food and reasonable prices. The parking is great because it's free 2 hour parking at lunch and free after 5pm in the adjoining parking lot. The d?cor is very warm, relaxing and just COOL! There is so much to look at in this place. The bar area is very inviting with TVs, couches and interesting bar stools. The bar had great drinks and a nice assortment of beers on tap as well as great wines by the glass, some you rarely see by the glass. The bar menu was interesting and the prices were great. Four of us had dinner in the dining room. We had a great server who was on her game. She was very funny and informative. One of the managers came over and suggested an excellent affordable bottle of wine and a great appetizer of meats, fresh cheeses and other wonderful items on a large wood board. That with their warm bread was sooooooo good. We all four had salads and they were excellent. I highly recommend their Caesar Salad - one of the best I have had. All four of us ordered different entrees and shared. Everything was excellent and the portions were generous. The pasta bolognese was to die for - almost as good as my mama's. We had leftovers which we enjoyed again the next day. Then came the desserts. We ordered 2 but I have to say the Lemon Ricotta Cheesecake was phenomenal! My husband and I eat out probably 4-5 times a week and grew up eating homemade Italian food - this is about as close as it gets. I gotta say the prices were also reasonable for the quality and atmosphere. The service was great and the Chef came out to greet us which I thought was a nice touch. This place is going to do very well and we plan on going often. We heard they will have daily specials in the bar (happy hour) and dining room. There is also a cool deli where you can grab and go. The prepared salads in the deli case looked really good as well as thier pizza. They also plan on having live music and there is a cool outside patio area with very nice cabanas. Like I said, finally a COOL place with excellent food and reasonable prices in the West Valley.
