Food and ambience were great. Service was a little sparse and slow.
It was quiet when we came in for an early lunch, but soon after it picked up. We had a terrific lunch catching up over delicious food. Our waitress provided us with excellent service throughout, including letting us linger over coffee after our meal. I've been a few times, and my friends had an excellent first experience and vowed to return.
This is a local restaurant for us. so a treat to find a place to eat out that is extremely good. The entrees are little on the pricey side, but the servings - especially the appetizers are generous. The flavour of our food was wonderful. Too bad that the wine by-the-glass is so expensive for a 5oz glass; it discouraged us from drinking any. Our server was fantastic: welcoming, hospitable and had a sense of humour. Our reservation, made on line weeks ago, was facilitated without problems and punctually. All told, we would and have returned to this restaurant many times. A great evening!
Salad was delicious. Pizza was bland. Needs spice.
Service was spectacular
The service here is always fantastic - we are so happy they have moved into the neighbourhood. The food is delicious, and the wine list is on the short side, but worthy of a discriminating palette. Highly recommend.
The service was great. The food was great, reminds me of the times I was in Italy.
I hear the pizza is really good. We will be having pizza the next time we are in.
We had pasta, and it wasn't what we were expecting, and didn't justify the high cost. Many Italian restaurants in town can do a better job.
Pasta was rubbery and sauce very salty. Expensive. Expensive, expensive
Fiore is a lovely combination of simplicity of decor and menu options ensuring the focus is on quality of dishes and experience of diner.
David was wonderful. GReat service
Hi "Rooky", thank you for your review! David will be glad to hear this! See you again soon!
High quality ingredients and great service but several of the dishes were a bit overdone in terms of flavours. For example, the ravioli we had contained an awesome caramelized onion filling but the sauce contained kale, garlic, pieces of pickled onion, and pine nuts. These additions to the sauce detracted from the pasta, and this seemed to be a trend with other dishes too.
Hi Anonymous, thank you for your feedback. Will bring up your concerns to our chef. Hope to see you again soon
Cacio Pepe dish was bad and overly peppery. Even though they mentioned it, it was ridiculous. I am Italian and cacio Pepe is a staple dish in Italy, how can a cook mess it up like that and change it to what they created.
Might as well the dish be called spaghetti pepper sauce! And don’t dare to called it the Italian dish, as that is not what it was!
Because that is not how cacio Pepe is made!
Disappointed and am embarrassing
Hi Aggy, thank you for your feedback! "Cacio e pepe" means "cheese and pepper" so you are right if you translate it you can call it pepper sauce! As you said we mentioned it will have quite a kick to it. Sorry you didn't enjoy it. Next time just ask your server and we'll be happy to offer you any other pasta from our regular menu. Hope to see you again soon!
Had a really lovely time. Food was good and they were very accommodating with dietary restrictions. Would go again!
Hi Nadi, thank you for a nice review! Means a lot! See you again soon!
Fiora Famiglia is a terrific place to take friends. The food is great, and the service is wonderful. They don't blast the background music, so you can even hear the conversation of the friends you brought.
I recommend starting with the prosecco! My favorite of the evening was the ravioli (can even bring a vegetarian friend!)
Hi Karen, your words warm our hearts and prove that we're doing something right. We're trying to get better every day and guests like you are the reason! Looking forward to seeing you soon!
Great spot will be back.
Hi Bruce, thank you for taking time and rating us! Means a lot! See you again soon!
Ambience was very nice! When the food arrived it was not hot! :'( Service was good!
Hi Kay, thank you for your feedback. We did some improvements and food should be arriving faster to the tables. Hope you'll give us another chance and we'll see you soon
A friend and I went there for her birthday. We were a bit apprehensive, having not been to Fiore before. But, no problem whatsoever! We were greeted warmly, seated at the perfect table near the window. The server did an excellent job (unfortunately, I missed his name), and even delivered on a small birthday cake
+ candle. Finally, our dinners were very good.
Thank you. We shall return! Graham Allen
Hi Graham, thank you so much for your kind words! Happy you enjoyed your first visit at Fiore Famiglia and lookinf forward to seeing you again!
We enjoyed the ambiance and the service and two us enjoyed our food. Two of us had risotto and it was not cooked properly. Although the scallops were excellent the pasta was crispy and cold and the sauce was not very good. This is the second time one of us had a bad food experience there.
Great server who anticipated every need. Busy For a Monday night and single person effectively managed about 8 tables with just the right amount of banter with guests. Every dish was hot and flavourful.
A lovely neighbourhood dining spot that’s worthy of destination status as well. Service is always exquisite. Pasta (freshly made in house) is always perfectly prepared, even if only a touch under-seasoned at times (which isn’t necessarily a negative).
Late Saturday night dinner. Was a bit loud but probably because it is a very small dining room. Excellent service, creative cocktails, reasonably priced. House made bread did not seem as home made as Fiore South Granville. That and you get 4 thin toasted slices for the price. Arugula salad was delish, as was the beet salad, warm burrata and olives. The pasta was very salty. We like salty food and it was really too salty. We had papadelle, carbonara. The risotto was also bordering on too salty. I would ask the kitchen to taste what they are putting out. Or get a second opinion. Price point was great. Would totally go back if food was not so salty
Well cooked food served nicely in an informal atmoshere. We will return once again.
Hi Edward, thank you so much for your kind words! Looking forward to having you back
Just about the best margherita pizza I've had in Vancouver
OMG! Thank you Sean that's a huge honor!
Starter arugula salad was nothing special at all. Pasta was undercooked and inside some noodles it was white even.
I love everything about this place. Especially the Salsiccia pizza. The service is always awesome! Jakob and Jen are fantastic. My regular go to for pizza.
I wish I new who wrote this! Thank you so much for your words! We do it for you guys and love that you keep coming back.
First visit to Fiore Famiglia - we enjoyed the pizza and salad and an antipasti plate for an appetizer. Excellent wine list and friendly service. The room was full on Friday evening. It is a great choice in the neighbourhood for a casual meal. We will come again to try the pasta as it looked great.
Thank you for your kind words Connie! We are looking forward to having you back!
I have now tried all three; this one is a close second. Some of the best service I have ever had, knowledgeable about the wine list, eager to talk about the food. Attentive and unobtrusive. One of the nicest meals I’ve had out in a long time. My only complaint was the noise. Need something to dampen the sound in a tiny restaurant. I’d go back in a heartbeat, but probably earlier to get there before the rush ... the noise really did bring down our experience
Welcoming & friendly staff, great cuisine, lovely wines... obviously a neighborhood favorite, as there was a constant stream of locals coming in -- greeting familiar faces. As we're from 'out-of-the-neighborhood', a reservation seems essential. We're sure to visit them again.
This was our second visit in a month, so obviously enjoyed the first experience. Food was OK this time, without being great. Service generally was good, although it took probably 15 minutes to get first drinks after I eventually called someone over. You are not the only restaurant guilty of this, but if I was the owner, I would drum into staff that they MUST take initial drink orders soon after seating guests....with drinks to be served swiftly. That way the evening gets off to a good start.
Wonderful, creative food and very attentive service.
Great place, local, close, nice food, attentive staff. Worth your support.
Food was good but they initially burnt the pizza and it took a really long time for the food to come out. They sent out olives to compensate.
Nice room good service but the food was not great. They need to redo this menu. I’m not a fussy eater but I’m used to much better food at other vancouver restaurants with similar price point. I live nearby so would love to come here often..
Loved it! A mix of families, young children, grandparents, singles and a private party!!
Have eaten here twice and will be back
Enjoyable from the moment we arrived. Friendly attentive staff, nice decor/lighting/ambience, good food, reasonable value. We shall return.
Waited for an hour for an our entree and were rudely dismissed by the server. We paid for the starters and wine and left without entrees. Have not been treated so badly in a restaurant ever
The food's good, the seervers attentative, it's a pleasant experience, albiet a bit noisy due to echoing.
3rd time eating at Fiore... definitely a family neighbourhood favourite
Great local Italian restaurant on the west end. Staff was very friendly and made it a great experience. Food was great! Highly recommend!
Thank you for your kind words!
My second visit to this very welcoming place-- this time for lunch. The menu offers an
appropriate range of options-- and very reasonable prices. I had the "avocado toasts" really yummy
and layered with novel additions. The perky salad partner was also a superior product.
I'd rate at a higher star-- but reserve those for places that are "worth a journey" altho
Fiare Familia is definitely worth a MAJOR detour! We plan to return again soon.
Hey Sally thank you so much for great review! We are looking forward to seeing you again!
