Grazie to Papa & Mama who first taught us appreciate the good food we encountered after many years of living, eating and cooking Italian. Pasta , olive oil, gardens of fresh herbs and garlic, seafood , veal and poultry have always been the glory of Italian and Sicilian food. Fausto and Rolando invite and welcome you to dine Italian style! Serving proudly since 1990 !!

Looking for Italian, look no further!

I love pasta dishes and this place is hard to beat! Most Italian restaurants tend to limit the sauce that is served and you always need to request more, which can bring an additional charge. The sauces on their dishes are mouth watering and a proper amount so you are not eating dry pasta. My wife... read more

Eaten here numerous times. My wife and I love this restaurant. Decided to eat there this past Saturday. Arrived around 615pm and the restaurant was only about 1/3 full. Never had a problem with service, but this time was ridiculously slow. There was no shortage of getting refills on our drinks and water, but for some odd reason the entrees... More

Found this place by accident and let me tell you, look no further for good Italian food. This place is on veterans blvd. but if your not carful you will miss it. It's super small but that reminds me of some of the best Italian restaurants I ate in up north. It's honestly some of the best Italian food, I... More

Find the small places in the burbs and you will be rewarded. That's what we did. Nice, small, and cozy and the food was excellent. The service was very good. We had plenty of food and the meatballs and the Italian sausage were really tasty. But it's the place,too! We didn't sing O Sole Mio, but we did think about... More

Take a cab here or get friends to drive you here because it is well worth it. All the dishes on this menu are great. My personal favorites are the Veal Saltimbocca, Pesce Siciliano and the Eggplant Parmesan with some Italian Sausage on the side. Very Romantic place and a good place to get a real feel for local New... More

The owner of Fausto's is FAUSTO and he is PURELY Italian! He has authentic recipes from his native Sicily. Every dish is prepared from SCRATCH! The ambiance is very romantic and candlelit. On Valentine's Day and other special holidays, there is a rose on each table. Fausto's is an unbelievably excellent choice for lunch or dinner!

Top notch in every way. The food, the staff, and the comfortable atmosphere make this place a favorite of mine. The sauces are awesome.

This restaurant serves very good Italian food at fair prices. Probably for that very same reason, there is usually a wait for a table in the tiny, crowded, very loud dining room. Service is inconsistent. Wine prices are excessive. I would rate this place four out of five for its food but I can only give it a two or... More

What a great find this place was. We had been having trouble getting into downtown restaurants without a two hour wait and we were seated immediately. It is obviously a local favorite and now we know why. The gumbo food was delicious and the service prompt and friendly.
