We have gone to this restaurant lots of times, we have friends that live nearby - and always a meal stop when there for the weekend. Food is very tasty and the staff extremely friendly and efficient.

Visited for family dinner after reading good reviews. It was a long drive to get to this place with lots of hopes for a great meal but delay in service really disappointed. The food was quite acceptable.

Visited for a business lunch. Service was quick and efficient. Extensive menu offering quick options which was just what we needed. Good portion size for lunch and tasty offering. No pressure on table and very good value for money. Would return.

Came here for a late lunch and the pizzas were lovely! I could t finish it all as was so big- but tasty and they had let me mix a couple of the ingredients. Restaurant is accessible with car park behind. Would say the decor could be a bit more up to date but other than that- great spot.

Lovely italian. Food is perfection. Portions are generous, especially the pizzas! Place is fairly small so probably best to book at the weekends. Its real home italian cooking. We will be back for sure

We were staying close by so we were happy to find this great suburban Italian. Simple, tasty and traditional Italian food, our starters and pasta main courses were all very good. Our son (the Tiramisu expert) thought Fabio's was excellent. Worth booking ahead.

When we lived in Edinburgh, Fabio's was always our favourite Italian restaurant. Family owned with authentic Italian dishes and a friendly atmosphere. We moved to Durham two years ago but return to Edinburgh about six times each year, a round trip of at least 300 miles. It is testament to Fabio's that we will always eat there during our usual...

On recommendation of concierge at Marriott which is a short taxi ride or 25 min walk away - Waiter (owner?) went out of his way to get us food we were interested in. Very good and very reasonable prices.

This was a lucky guess: I needed somewhere handy for all of us - I was meeting up with two ex-RAF officer colleagues that I hadn't seen in 40-odd years, whilst we were visiting Edinburgh for the Knitting & Stitching Show. Fabio's was on the main road between the city and the airport and seemed like a handy location. The... More
