I am a regular at Fabios Restaurant. I had not found a nice Carbonara until i went to Fabios. I wont have Carbonara from any other restaurant now. Highly recommend the Carbonara.

Last night was probably our 5th time at Fabio's and we still love it's authentic Italian feel. A true family business with great food. Note garlic pizza bread too much for 1 person but you can always take away! Pizza Fabio my favorite. Ask for a small bit chilli on it for additional kick! We'll be back!

Lunch. Simple menu, good food. Service attentive. Overall not spectacular. Average. Downside? Plastic table covers. It's 2015. Time to move on from the 70s. Other than that, no complaints.

Went to Fabios with friends for lunch. The food and service was great well worth the visit. The afternoon we were there it was fully booked which real tells you what the locals think of the restaurant.

I've eaten here a number of times and always mean to post a review. Don't be misled by the exterior of this restaurant. It looks really small and when you go through to the parking it can be a bit dark and you feel cautious about what it will be like. Inside it is really bright and much bigger than... More

Visited on a Wednesday night with colleagues while working nearby. Restaurant fairly busy with other businessmen, couples and a birthday party. Very impressed by menu. Lots of choice particularly of pasta, pizzas and steaks. I had fried calamari with garlic sauce, followed by Veal Holstein (breaded with fried egg, capers and anchovies). Really enjoyed the food. Looking forward to going... More

I have eaten here several times across a number of years and it is quite simply the best Italian in Edinburgh. The food is awesome and the staff are just lovely and the wine list is delicious; what makes it even better is that it is totally unpretentious and the atmoshpere is really relaxed which just makes for a great...
