Came here for an evening meal on a cold rainy night in July

Food was excellent, though the mains were very slow to arrive. Lamb was wonderful

“Perfect pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Stopped at Fabio's for lunch and we ordered a variety of pizzas. Best pizza I've had in a very long time. Crispy, thin crust, very generous toppings and delicious right down to the last slice. Rest of menu looked very good, but having tasted delicious pizza I doubt I'll get to try anything else. Well worth a visit, nice atmosphere and character to the restaurant!

“Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

The food is authentic Italian, generous hot helpings.
Excellent service, friendly and efficient.
Pricing very good for the quality of the dishes.
The decor in serious need of an update and clean up, dull, dusty "feel".
Menu unnecessarily large.
Defintely one on my list to go back again and again.
