Fiore Famiglia

It’s been ages since I’ve seen my friend K so we made plans to meet up with her for dinner. She’s a bit picky so I thought I’d play it safe and pick Italian. We decided on Fiore Famiglia which is located next door to Sweet Obsessions. They also have another location in South Granville.


Sign outside.



We dropped in on a Friday evening (with reservations at 6:00pm). The reso was pretty unnecessary as the place was never packed while we were there. The inside is cute and has a relaxed vibe to it. Plenty of tables and several people were eating at the bar too. Service is friendly and they came by multiple times to refill waters.


The menu is short and sweet; small plates, pastas, large plates, pizzas and desserts.


Interesting that there’s only four pastas and five pizza options.


Drink menu is mainly wines but a few typical beer options (1 and 2).

House-made focaccia ($5.00)
DSC00135Herbs, olive oil and balsamic reduction. B wasn’t impressed. For a house-made focaccia, this wasn’t very special. It didn’t come out warm.


The balsamic and olive oil came in a dipping jar (so strange) but most importantly, they barely gave any balsamic.

Vegetarian pizza ($18.00)
DSC00138Rapini, tomato sauce, garlic, caramelized onions and asiago. This was the only dish we found decent.


It won’t blow you away as it’s on the small side but most people seemed to be ordering the pizzas.

Gnocchi ($20.00)
DSC00142This was their special of the day; homemade gnocchi with a bianco sauce, mushroom, red peppers and diced pancetta. Nothing about this dish was good.


The gnocchi had no bite to it whatsoever and both the filling and sauce was completely bland. The red peppers were soggy and the pancetta added nothing to the dish. Huge disappointment.

Beet ravioli ($19.00)
DSC00145Ricotta filled, gorgonzola cream, basil and golden beet pangrattato. The presentation looked great when it came out but flavours were lacking again.


The cream sauce wasn’t tasty and thickened up quickly.


They sprinkled breadcrumbs on top to give it texture but that was a mistake.


We were hoping to find a cute Italian neighbourhood spot but left disappointed in our meal. Lucky, the walk over to La Glace for dessert saved our night.
