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

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
