Intimate, close to home restaurant. Great food. I had "the cod father", it was enough food for two people, very good. My fiancé had the flatbread, he liked it. Service is great. A little expensive, depending on what you order. But I loved it.

Great place. Loved the live music. Food was very, very good. Service was very attentive. Bartenders poured a perfect drink. Will be returning

I walked in here for lunch. One person was eating near the bar. No one else was there. Lunchtime? No one. Red flag. I stood at the entrance for at least 5 minutes. I know they saw me. I was dining alone. I still think I am entitled to a "someone will seat you in a moment" or "Hello, welcome... More

We gave it a try and were disappointed. Romance is not painting walls black and put a candle on the table. Looks more like a cheap version of a misic bar that also serves food.. Menue is short, but promising. I heard about the gnocci and found them as an appatizer for $12... When I asked how much the dinner... More

We were really excited to try Yabo out. Everything was so fantastic from the wine to the gnocchi to the specials we ordered. The vibe was very fun- it's kind of artistic with mostly musical inspiration. We will be back.

We read some reviews in a tour book and it stated that Yabo is one of the best dinning at Fort Myers. Overall we were disappointed. The appetizers were delicious but that was it. We both ordered the special, mine was Lamb shank and it was OK. My husband ordered the grouper, that was not good. The fish was cooked... More

Enjoyed a Friday night extended family night out. Reservation made- seated upon arrival- prompt service. Each member of our party had a different entry, all delicious - the scallops were perfectly seared served on a bed of spinach ( my favorite) chicken Milano and lasagna were complimented by all. Once you go Yabo's ........

Tucked away in a shopping plaza is one of the best restaurants we have found in the Fort Myers area. Part rock bar, part Italian restaurant Yabo is the first place we eat when we are in town. The restaurant has a large stage and often has named acts, the service is great with an indoor/outdoor bar and the food... More

The food and the atmosphere is unlike anything in SWFL. Have a seat and transport yourself to an amazing meal and a vibe that is non-existant in Ft. Myers. It has become our favorite place for a weekend date night and I simply can not say enough about it. After trying various (ALL delicious) menu items, I must say that... More
