“Love the spaghetti wish it was a better place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2010

The free bread you get while you wait is so good! My favorite thing to order is the spaghetti (you always get a huge serving) and the garlic bread that comes with it is great! Tastes homecooked and just how i like it. My only problem with the place is the restaurant its self i just wish it was bigger and nicer. It is definitely a "home turned into a restaurant" kind of place. I prefer to order my food to go more often, you get the same huge serving and the garlic bread.

“Not Olive Garden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2009

If you're looking for Olive Garden, stay away but if you're looking for somewhere to eat and talk and then eat and talk some more, a place that cooks food the way Mama or Nonna did, then this is the place! The focaccia is to die for, wonderful antipasti, excellent veal and don't forget to leave room for the canoli. Hope you enjoy, I certainly did!

“Disappointing...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2008

I researched TripAdvisor before my wife and I came to Hot Springs for our anniversary. Last night we went to Facci's because of the reviews on this website. We looked at the menu as soon as we walked in to see if there was something that sounded good because we had eaten at Angel's for lunch.

We found something that we thought each of us would enjoy and were sat at a table immediately. There was a man sitting at a table adjacent from us who made the comment, "Now y'all are starting to get busy." I looked around the restaurant and saw that it wasn't even half full, so his comment caught me by surprise. After we were seated, we waited about 4-5 minutes before our drink order was taken. It was another 4-5 minutes before our drinks were delivered after taking our order! My wife ordered a sandwich and I ordered the Penne with Vodka Sauce. It was advertised full page on the back of the menu, so I decided to give it a try. The waitress brought out bread with dipping oil and I thought the bread was delicious! I wasn't impressed with the dipping sauce mixture - it wasn't bad, but it wasn't good. We were given our salads and I was thinking to myself, "That bread was good, so I bet our dinner will be great!". After waiting approximately 20-25 minutes for our food, the waitress finally brought it out. The portion was huge and was very hot, but I was disappointed after taking the first bite. My wife enjoyed her sandwich and after taking a bite, I wish that I had ordered the same. We had to wait an extended time for our drink refills and I kept wondering what was taking the wait staff so long. Apparently we weren't the only ones who felt like the service was below par. We overheard two other tables talking about how the service was poor and wondered what took so long.

When my wife and I return to Hot Springs, we will think twice about giving Facci's a second chance.

“Yummo!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2008

I was a little hesitant to dine here due to their building. I was glad we decided to try it. Attentive and personable service. Great focaccia bread served before meal and garlic bread with meal. Portions are large and food was very tasty. A great alternative to those "chain Italian restaurants". Definitely will return.
