We had lasagne and pizza, both we're not very nice. Pizza very bready and the lasagne seemed microwaved. Wouldn't recommend this place. The delivery also took a long time which meant the food wasn't very hot when it arrived.

On the up side it was very cheap but not cheap enough to make he feel like going again.

Thank James S

This has been the worst experience ever.

Service quality - Very poor

8:45 pm - Order placed and told it will take 1:15 hr for delivery
10:00 pm - Delivery person called to say he was leaving the facility. This was already 1:15 after the order was placed.
10:30 pm - No sign of delivery. Called Fabio's and the manager assured me the delivery was already on the way.
10:45 pm - Still no delivery. Called again and got the same answer - delivery is on the way. The lady on the phone did not seem to care a hoot that it was already 2 hours since the order had been placed.
10:55 pm - STILL NO DELIVERY! Called again and asked to speak with the manager who now tells me that the delivery had left at 10:39 pm - 1:54 hr after the order was placed! And yet, he himself had told me at 10:30 hr that the delivery was already on its way! Sad, really sad, to be told blatant lies.
11:00 pm - Pizza finally arrives - 2:15 hr after placing the order.

Quality of pizza - Very poor

Was the wait worth it? The pizza base was undercooked and soggy. The sauce was pedestrian and the overall taste unappealing. Quite a bit of it found its way to the dust-bin, I am afraid.

Would I return?


Even a grade of 1 is too much. I would have rated it lower had that been an option!

I tried Fabios as I wanted a good traditional Italian Pizza, not some fast food chain inerpretation of pizza. Firstly you can't eat in, it is take away only. The pizza was very good. Excellent. However what let it down a little was value. For Qatar it is very expensive and I just feel as though they should either increase the size or reduce the price. Secondly a can of cola is double what it costs eveyrwhere else? Will I be back? Yes , but not as often as I would be if the prices dropped to a more reasonable level. So overall great pizza but you pay a premium for it.

Never been to the place and that's the only reason it got 2 stars instead of 1...

1) It took a long time to deliver beyond what they advised on the phone (i.e. over 1 hr 15 mins). I wasnt really bothered cause i had a movie on and didnt notice how long it was until the delivery guy arrived and started his greeting by claiming he 'was standing there but I was not answering'.. Guess pressing the bell button, knocking on the door or even giving me a missed call like most other drivers -or human beings for that matter- do was quite challenging for him. The audacity baffled me...

2) The website where I got to know about the place said "you'll struggle to get to the minimum delivery charge of QR 50 because it was 'very reasonably priced'" and so being who I am without checking an online menu I ordered 1 pizza 1 lasagna and 1 tiramisu. Total bill QR 143 (circa US 40 dollars). I wouldn't say it's the most expensive i had from a fast food joint here but it certainly ain't great value for money.. Which brings me to...

3) I asked them to recommend a pizza I was told Fabio's special so I ordered that.. 10 minutes later I get a call to tell me they ran out of mushroom...!!! So I agreed they replace the ingredient with the 'next best thing' anyway the pizza arrived and apart from the thin crust that I liked its sitting here next to me missing the two slices i had, I'm hungry now and thinking of getting out to get me something else to eat.. It's too salty, a lot of flavor but don't mix well in the mouth... The lasagna was nothing like the pic, naturally, and had a modest amount of cheese and no mozzerela cheese!! puhhh but wasn't as bad as the pizza... Tiramisu I wouldn't have again from this place.

I'm a picky lazy pr**k sometimes and its maybe unfair my comment is the first and so far the only review here, but thats how it is and I'm saying I won't be trying their delivery ever again. if I do go there to dine it won't be before I've checked all other Italian food joints in Doha and concluded its all the same.
I'm hopin thats not the case.. *Fingers crossed*

Have a Jolly Time folks.
