Went there several times already with a large group. There is a private room up front that has a big round table which makes it easier to talk to everyone. The ambiance is very nice there. The service is excellent and the food is pretty good. Most of our group liked what they had but there were a couple of... More

My husband and I joined several others for a friend's birthday party last evening. The friend had been there before, and raved about the food. We had a private room, and the staff could not have been more attentive. However, the food was very disappointing. I had a Salad Caprese to start. The mozzarella was enormous and there was only...

The conceirge recommended this restaurant as it was Italian and close by the hotel as I requested. The food was average at best, but the wines by the glass saved it from being a total loss. We have had better Italian food in a strip mall, but somehow this place stays in business. The artichoke soup made from canned pickled... More

Have dined here several times and the food is excellent. Great atmosphere and good wine list. Don't miss the lobster bisque.

A very cozy dining room, great for a romantic dinner. The food was first rate with attentive, friendly service to match. We started with a Tricolor Salad and a Caprese Salad, both excellent and very fresh. I had a grilled swordfish steak, outstanding and perfectly prepared. My wife had pasta which was also very well done. All served piping hot... More

Italian food is one of my favorites and I have eaten in several in NYC. The quality of the food and wine list was superb. But I cannot stand a waiter that acts like he is doing you a favor by waiting on you. We did apps, entrees and bottles of wine and our waiter was smug. Amazing that the... More

Made a reservation here through Open Table for the night of the New York Marathon. Researched it first and saw good reviews and decent ratings. Also wanted something that we could walk to from our hotel if we chose. It was a good pick for the six of us. We were seated immediately, everyone liked their meal, service was polite,... More

We ate here on the last evening of our long weekend in NYC. There were 6 of us, with no reservation, and they seated us with a minimal wait. Everyone at our table enjoyed their dinners without exception. The service was great and the food was delicious.

Fabio Piccolo's is a lovely small Italian restaurant one hopes to find in Manhattan. Although it is a bit pricey, I have always thought it was worth the cost. I am not a drinker but I do know they have a great selection of wines in the medium to expensive range. My sister & BIL live a handful of blocks... More

We were looking for a casual Italian dinner on late arrival into New York and at the suggestion of the hotel we visited Fabio's We were provided with an outdoor table on a balmy night and this was very acceptable. Our waiter seemed a bit off putting at the start with but as the meal progressed he seemed to soften.... More
