Still full!

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

Brilliant little restaurant hidden away in Corstorphine. Amazing food, fantastic service, value for money, nothing is too much trouble.

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

A nice little Italian restaurant in Edinburgh. I had the minestrone soup and a chicken dish and the fudge ice-cream dessert, very yummy. Can't fault the food, the atmosphere and decor is great. The only thing I would suggest is to get comfier chairs.

Seven of us ate here on a Tuesday night. Great atmosphere with someone having a birthday and the whole restaurant joining in. The food was lovely, we all had something different and cleared our plates with the unfinished pizza getting wrapped and taken home.

I've always liked Fabio's, I've never had a bad experience. I usually order the same food every time I go, only because I know what I like and enjoy it, well this time I changed my mind, I decided to try the steak, well I'm glad I did because Fabio's is no longer just a pizza pasta place to me...

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.
