Nice restaurant esp good value at lunch time. Good Italian a bit old fashioned but I think that is a good thing. The garlic bread is the best and the staff are good and very efficient

The previous rating gave service a pasting. It was great, charming and the food was great. The ambiance is a little flat but I eat here again. Worth a visit

We had heard good things about Fabios from a friend so 3 of us went to try it out. The service was almost non existent to the point where another customer had to ask the waiter to attend us as my attempts to get his attention were just being ignored. Two of us ordered the carbonara which was covered in... More

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.
