We visited on a Saturday night, it was very busy and a bit too noisy to talk but the food was excellent it tasted authentic and home cooked. I would definitely revisit but during the week when it's quieter

Been here twice with my young kids, the owners/waiters always make an effort to engage with them, entertain them, and if necessary, encourage them to eat up their food! The food is very tasty, my eldest even tried the garlic snails (!) and said they were yummy. Overall, a very enjoyable and recommendable experience.

Dropped in for quick, affordable, dinner with teenage daughter while on way to university open day. Had focaccia between us, followed by lasagne and seafood risotto, all very well prepared and presented in a simple but satisfying way. Service was very quick, considering the part of 20+ that seemed to be just ahead of us. Despite being on main road... More

Been a few times, never been disappointed in the food or service. Prices are reasonable. It can get noisy if busy but that's to be expected when there are a lot of people enjoying themselves.

We walked down to Fabios for lunch, as it is not too far from where we live, and we were pleasantly surprised. Being on the main road we expected to to be very noisy inside, however it is very well insulated. The decor was very cosy and comfortable, and the staff friendly and attentive. Between us we ordered a pasta... More

I have never felt SO compelled to write a review in my life so no one else suffers as we have. Attended here tonight for a birthday meal. There were 13 of us. The staff were innatentive and unfriendly at best. The food was tasteless and tasted like it was microwaved. We ordered a variety of main courses , the... More

I went there with a colleague. we stayed in a hotel nearby and this seemed reasonable. it was Wednesday evening and the place was very busy. it seems immensely popular. But when i looked at the menu my heart sank. This is Italian food for British palates. Huge choice of pizzas and pastas, but everything else seems all rather British.... More

This restaurant was within walking distance from the Marriott and had good reviews. We were tired from driving so were quite happy with the walk, even in the rain! Glad we did it because the restaurant is a very casual and warm place. The service was excellent and amazing with only two guys. It was packed for a Monday night......obviously... More

We had an excellent lunch today, I hadnt been there for a few years and we choose to eat there with family as it was central to us all. I was delighted that the food was still excellent, service great and all-in-all the 8 of us had great lunch. Thx, we will be back soon

Excellent food that had wonderful flavour. Close to the airport and easy to access. Parking behind the restaurant. Thank you for letting us in early. Wonderful veal marsala that we would not hesitate to recommend.
