Wonderful for two hungry travelers

It was a perfectly prepared breakfast !! I would get the same thing. Coffee was ground fresh and the owner served it himself.

The restaurant was right next store to their buffet restaurant which was cute and the food looked appealing and smelled great. We came for breakfast and the food was fine. Simple and plain. The staff did not smile and had little energy. A family run place. When you are done eating just walk to the cash register. Your bill is... More

I would suggest this restaurant to anyone. Fantastic meal and their servers are on top of it no matter how busy they are. Everyone seems so happy all the time and I didn't see one person walking around with out a smile on their faces

This was the best food I've eaten in Avery county! I had the grouper parmesan sandwich and it was delicious. The menu was filled with great options at incredibly affordable prices. The atmosphere was wonderful--I loved the old building. Our waiter was kind and attentive and the chef came over several times to check on us several times. I look... More

Not a fan of it. It was just ok. The service was subpar and the food lacked flavor. The restaurant was chilly.

Fabio is awesome at what he does. Folks get his place confused as an Italian restaurant. But it is much more. He fixes international dishes that are prepared fresh daily. Love the food there. Try his Saturday nite wine pairings. You won't be disappointed.

If you are looking for a "fancy restaurant" do not go to Fabios, BUT if you are looking for EXCELLENT food, Italian, Prime Rib Dinners, and a great breakfast, and everything in between, this is where you need to go. The service is great, and everyone is friendly. The atmosphere is greatly lacking, but the price is right.The restaurant has... More

For such a rural, small town as Newland, we are consistently pleased with the quality and quantity of food that Fabio offers.
