My friend and I went to this restaurant for dinner Last night (Aug 13) and found the atmosphere very nice. The tables are NOT one on top of the next, and there were different areas that were isolated from each other. We both wound up ordering the Broccolini rotollini with a pesto sauce that was absolutely delightful. The pasta was... More

The meal my friend and I had at Fascino this evening is worthy of a rave notice. The room is attractive, the staff pleasant, and the food exquisite. Bread with olive oil served before the various plates arrive. We ordered an antipasto. Lovely, harmonious tidbits. Calamares perfect. Gnocci with Bolognese sauce was a great choice of pasta. My friend had... More

My wife and I go here every year for our anniversary, and also in between. The food is just a cut above other Italian fare in the area, but also a bit more expensive. Worth it though. The tasting menu is one of the best we have ever tried. Each course has two choices, so we usually get one of... More

The food and service at Fascino continue to be good; the menu adapts to current tastes. It's a reliable fine dining experience, if a bit hard to get a reservation and a bit noisy at times.

My husband and I dined at Fascino for the first time to celebrate my birthday. It was a truly amazing meal with an even better experience. From start to finish the service was top notch- our server was extremely attentive, happy to answer questions and make recommendations, and made us feel like we were the only table in the place....

#2 out of 147 restaurants in Montclair? It was good, and I'd go back if I had no other options, but I'd suggest to the people of Montclair to explore other Italian restaurants. Let me start with the service - it was terrific. The people were kind, attentive, not over the top, they made it a very pleasant experience. The... More

I worked with the General Manager Chris Pavone to create a special evening for our wine group. Chef Ryan and Chris created a spectacular 7 course menu for us. For a wine tasting evening (and for that matter anytime) service is critical and Fascino provided us with superb service for a true fine dining experience to match the wine. Thanks... More

Took our father out for his 93rd birthday and experienced one of the best meals we ever had!! Right from the start, Tony our server offered us complimentary prosecco to celebrate which was a nice touch and the night only got better and better. The oysters were fresh and succulent, the polenta fries were crispy and creamy with mascarpone on... More

Description
"The atmosphere of Fascino, with its minimalist cream and deep red decor, borders on stark but not casual. The complexity's in the entrees, where flavors, scents and textures fuse seamlessly. Puree of kobacha squash soup with oregano crema and hazelnut oil wins the intriguing appetizer award, and the paper-thin sheets of beef carpaccio with truffle oil and petite salad are a beef purist's dream. Pastas, risottos and raviolis are all available as appetizers or main courses, but the duck breast with confit cannelloni and black fig compote or pine nut-crusted codfish might be hard to pass up." -- Mike Hess, AOL Digital City
