Fabio's is an old school, authentic italian restaurant. It's what's on the plates inside this somewhat dingy dining room that keeps us coming back. It's a slow pace-we call it relaxing- from course to course. Everything is handmade.You will not be served frozen breaded chicken patties or handed a shaker of Kraft Parmesan Cheese. Find fresh pasta dishes, a wide selection of fish entrees and some beef on the menu. And that may be the downfall. The menu is quite extensive, perhaps too big. When everything is being made to order from such a huge menu, the kitchen can get slow. We have not had a bad experience and we eat at Fabio's about once a month. I do see the posted reviews of slow service. The decor is nothing to get excited about. The silverware is cheap and doesn't match but every time we go, we see a little something that has been fixed up inside. And the owner/chef has a bit of a reputation of being a hot-head. We think a better word would be passionate about his food. He has come out of the kitchen and visited tables before and offered up drinks or dessert on the house. We go for the food. We love italian food and Fabio's is eclectic and old school. We appreciate that. The location is horrible...across a parking lot from the smoking entrance of a bar but just march on in and enjoy an atypical italian meal.
