“Amazing Food in an Unexpected Location!”
Reviewed February 28, 2008

A family owned restaurant with some of the best "down home style" Italian food that you will ever have.

The chef/owner will be sure to stop by your table with a joke and a recommendation, the wife and daughter will keep you happy and smiling with attentive service at your table. Be sure to look at the specials before you make your choice. Often there will be a hidden epicurean delight.

Be sure to start with the fried calimari and you will immediately know you are in for quite an evening. I have eaten here about 4 times and have yet to select something from the menu that wasn't great.

For dessert don't miss the cannolis you will feel like you just stepped into a South Philly bakery.

This is a place that you will want to sit back and enjoy, and you will be allowed to. Prices are standard, maybe a tad high for the area but you will understand why when you taste the food, this place is a gem. You may want to call ahead especially with 4 or more as Fabio's can get busy on most evenings. The place has two rooms each with about 10 tables.
