The service is always great. The staff is very friendly and the food is awesome. It's always fresh, hot and tasty. I've enjoyed pizza, salad , a couple different pastas and the cassata cake. All equally excellent.

Let me start out with this: WOW! I wasn't really expecting an authentic Italian dinner and was I surprised! The starters of bread and pizza were excellent. The chicken parm was fantastic and the service? The service was A-1 top shelf. I don't live near there, but if I find myself within 45 minutes and I'm looking for dinner, I... More

Always feel welcomed as if we are family when we dine here. Loce all of the meals. The Lisa Salad and Italian Wedding Soup is a great beginner and the Casada cake dessert is a great finish.

Fazios is family owned & of the highest caliber. Fazios restaurant is a must visit if you are in, or anywhere near Lake County, Ohio. The service, portions & food are outstanding. Her casada cake is homemade & a must try (& luckily comes with meals). Daily & nightly food specials are always wonderful. Her "Sunday sauce" & lobster risotto... More

Every time I get roped into going here, it's always the same - very mediocre. The place attracts an older crowd and the food is average. I actually think it's a bit pricey for subpar "Italian" food. I'd rather take Olive Garden than this hole in the wall. I still don't get the weird food cart thing either - what?... More

A co worker and I headed to Mario Fazio's restaurant for a quick lunch. First time for both of us and both agree it's a place to come back to. Foods was delicious, portions are more then one person could eat, however it heated up nicely for dinner that evening. The lunch menu came with choice of soup or salad,... More

Make reservations! Enjoyed food and complementary dessert - best Casadacake ever! Service excellent! I, personally, think this place is too special to take young children. We went for our anniversary and will be going back for the food and atmosphere. We had a nice time and highly recommend.

Such great service and food every time. I love the lemon chicken and the dessert. I know anytime I go here with my family we will get a good meal. Definitely recommend it! Wish they were open on Sundays!
