Eggcellent breakfast.

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.

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.
