Nice basic Italian restaurant with great food and nice service. Large menu with a lot of choice. The straciatella soup was great.

Our annual show trip back to Edinburgh and as usual we ate at Fabio's - 12 of us in total. The service was quick, polite and friendly and the food was very good as usual. The portion sizes seemed to have shrunk a little bit however all in all a very good meal and will be back again next year... More

Good family eatery, the owner is lovely and friendly and always has a smile. Food v tasty, chicken in their whiskey sauce is my fav, a real winner. Great wee local restaurant that always serves up a good standard. Can get super busy so suggest maybe booking, especially at weekends.

Visited 21st of June, arrived to a freezing restaurant, only to be told by the waiter with bad attitude that nothing they can do as another guest has asked for the door to be left open, my wife and family had to keep their jackets on. Ordered Pate, no taste, ordered Pizza which I had to return due to excessive... More

Good food well done. I see lots of other comments about the atmosphere but it wasn't apparent here at lunchtime today - just polite service, no more.

As a family we tend to dine at Fabio's whenever we visit our parents in Edinburgh as it's their favourite. The menu offers a great choice - sometimes too much if you're very hungry - and is always good value for money. Hubby recommends the steak/haggis/whiskey sauce combo!! Staff are funny and cheeky, always have time to chat no matter... More

Had a very good meal here with family. We all tried different things, chicken, steak, pizza and all were very good and prices reasonable for somewhere with such a good reputation. Can't go wrong here. Staff give it the personal touch aswell. Thanks
