I relly hate writing negative reviews, but if I point out the good in places, I guess I have to point out the bad, as well. I can't really speak as to the general menu at Fabio's. They may have the best breakfast and lunch ever. We went on 'wine pairing night' where you're served a 5 course meal, 'family-style',... More

Fabio's Restaurant is the best italian food I've ever eaten, and I've been to Venice, Florence, and the Italian Riviera. Make reservations and go on a wine pairing night for a fabulous meal. It's worth the drive.

I realize everyone can't be perfect all the time but my entire family of 5 were sick that night and two days after. How hard is it to refrigerate meat or hire a babysitter. If I wanted to eat with loud obnoxious children i'd go to a public school. Let's wear some hair nets too please there shouldn't be exceptions... More

Food was good and portions plentiful. Fabio himself does all the cooking and preparation. Fabio was helpful with describing things to do in Newland

We just finished the wine dinner experience with Fabio.....5 courses and 5 matching wines for less than $3....which were all quite good. But it isn't only the wonderful food that is so special -- it is the family atmosphere. Don't miss this experience if you have the opportunity.

Fabio's 5 course wine dinners are unbeatable. Small, quaint restaurant in the mountains, 5 course meal and a different wine with each one. All of the food is prepared by Fabio, who is really Italian, so the food is authentic. Others meals are great too. Hard to beat the house vegetable omlet at breakfast!

My husband and I have traveled extensively and consider Fabio's to be our favorite restaurant. We have been eating at there since Fabio opened many years ago. The food is always delicious. The atmosphere is casual and very homey. Definitely worth a trip to the mountains just to eat at Fabio's. Can't wait to go back.

We've eaten at Fabio's since he came to years ago, watched his kids grow up behind the counter, and were in the restaurant when he so proudly announced obtaining his US citizenship. The food is always plentiful, well prepared, and reasonable. The summer every other week wine tasting meals are incredible. A five course meal with 5 wines for $26.00!

Dropped in on Fabio's this week for breakfast, and it was really good. Had a western omelet that was excellent. Nice big cup of coffee, nice folks. Hard to beat a place like this. For some reason it was warm in the place, they had a big fan near the front door. I went to the restroom in the back... More
